Hi,

Is Microsoft flight sim (2000 onwards) available on mac, like has Aspyr done a copy of it? If not any other good alternatives which are worth giving a shot?

Also is Civ4 out for mac yet?

Thanks for your help apple dudes.

http://www.x-plane.com/ is bloody good, but it isn't really a game. They use it for training pilots. :)

X-Plane is the most realistic flight sim available on any platform - give it a go, it's pretty good.

There was talk of a company porting MSFS 2004 to the Mac platform way back IN 2004, but there has been no word since.

X-Plane sounds like the go thanks guys, I am doing alot of training in aviation, not just in flying but also learning the aircraft systems and I've found in the past when I used to own a PC that Flight Sim was an excellent way of simulating all the theory. Much appreciated advice I will give it ago, thanks.

Also does anyone know about Civilization 4, when its due to come out or if it already has, last I heard it was due around sometime now....

According to the Aspyr Game Status page (http://www.aspyr.com/games.php/status/), the game is in early development (meaning very little has happened yet) and is set for release in June.
