Mac game publisher MacSoft has released an upgrade to its recently released civilian aircraft flight simulator Fly! II to correct some problems with Mac OS X. MacSoft indicated that the patch “increases compatibility with Mac OS X and fixes some issues related to this operating system.”
Fly! II is the latest game from Terminal Reality Inc., whose previous releases include the original Fly!, Fly! 2K, and an off-road racing game, 4×4 Evolution. Its previous titles were published for the Mac through Gathering of Developers, but Fly! II is part of a licensing deal struck between MacSoft’s parent company Infogrames and Gathering’s parent company Take Two Interactive Software.
In Fly! II, you can take the yoke of a variety of different civilian aircraft, including propeller-driven and turbine-driven passenger craft, or even a helicopter. You can fly in various areas around the country, viewing terrain that’s 400 percent more detailed than Fly! II’s predecessors. The software features dynamic weather effects, sun and moon phases, and a scenario scripting system that lets you craft your own adventures in the sky.
