The Flight Simulator Mod does what many people have considered impossible for Minecraft over the years. It implements the aspect of full-fledged flight and allows players to take to the skies on many different kinds of incredible airplanes and enjoy the game from a whole new perspective. Realistic flight has never been a feature in Minecraft since it’s quite hard to implement but this mod goes the extra mile to make sure that every single thing has been pulled off nicely so that players can enjoy one of the most immersive flying experiences that they can in the Minecraft world.
One of the most impressive things about Minecraft Flight Simulator is that it takes the actual physics of flight into account instead of giving players a basic experience that doesn’t have any real depth to it. You’ll have to keep in mind a variety of different factors during flight such as thrust, prop pitch, lift, drag and various others. The control scheme of the mod is keyboard based, so it’s fairly simple to get the hang of. Players are also given a wide variety of customization options that allow them to personalize their planes according to their playstyles and preferences. You can modify a variety of different things about your plane such as its engines, propellers, design and much more.
Of course, it’s worth keeping in mind that since there’s so much depth to the Flight Simulator mod, it’ll take a while before you’re able to fully master the basics of flight but once you finally manage to do so, the experience will be exhilarating as nothing quite compares to the experience that one has watching the world from the skies. Overall, Minecraft Flight Simulator pushes the boundaries of Minecraft a great deal further by giving players the ability to enjoy a realistic flight.
