Falcon 4 is supposed to be one of the best aerial combat simulators, IL2 is also supposed to have a good flight model. Both games are older and should run without problems on older hardware.

If you have a newer computer and want to play a more action style game, check out Tom Clancy's Hawx

Oh, and should you not want to get too professional, FsX by Microsoft is also ok and good enough to fool around and have some fun... just check them out online and see which one suits your needs better.

Laotou is 100% correct. Xplane is one of the only real flight simulators out there. Why? Because the flight is simulated (computed in real time)... airflow over the wing (incl lift and different wing shapes), air resistance, wind....
While all MS products (Flight Sim X) only emulates a plane... it checks some parameters of an air craft (position, pitch, speed, altitude, etc.) and cross checks those against a programmed table. From this result it will determine your air crafts reaction.

In the end, x-Plane is FSA licensed (in several versions). You can set it so realistic that you'll be able to log real-flight hours, in case you have a pilots license.
Periphery support is outstanding, you can connect almost anything, like external panels, radios, pitch indicators, and and and, oh yes, simple rudder-horn combinations are of course also supported as well as simple joysticks.

I would suggest you to buy any game online nowadays (if you want to buy originals that is). Rudders/Horns can be bought on Taobao (I recommend Saitek products for professional flight systems, otherwise anything by Logitech, Thrustmaster or above RMB300 should work for the beginning :-)), I have not seen anything worth buying in a Kunming store.

Have fun!

Blobbles,

I can second tigertiger, you can use Google Earth to preplan your route. I even find the resolution good enough to find my way without a GPS. Learn your route by heart on the screen or print out a map with several predefined routes.
If you're planning on descending on one of this farmers tracks let me give you a word of warning. These tracks tend to become very steep and narrow (especially near the top) with quickly changing surfaces (sharp rocks followed by a slippery clay-like surface for example). I hike them quite often and I am not sure you can completely negotiate them with a bike, unless your last name is Atherton though. I guess you'll have to carry your bike at some points.
If you want to try it, never ride alone and tell people where you will be riding, and then, please don't divert from your route(s).

I am more astonished that a pack of five dogs would actually attack deers... On the photos the dogs do not look that big, the typical Kunming city mix. Yes, the deers lived in a zoo, when they saw the pack (no matter how it got in), they definitely panicked, as they never had an encounter with another predator before and of course the dogs chased them. But it's beyond me why a well fed, or at least not starving dog (see pictures) would bite to kill.

Except they were well trained. I mean five dogs and six dead deer?! Very well trained.

Sad sad sad.

I hope that this will have no repercussions on domestic local dogs (as I own one), and I hope that the police will realize that this was a well planned and well executed attack (don't get me wrong, no positive vibrations here).

Hey, short question:

Who of you managed to climb the first steep (concrete) ramp directly behind the cigarette factory??

I'm a beginner, just started riding mtb. But man this is so steep. I made it all the way to the park entrance without putting a foot on the ground except the first ramp.

Just now it seems that the roads in the "park" are being paved so I couldn't ride in. The construction starts directly after the first small parking lot. As I live very close by, I'll try to go up the mountain regularly and keep you updated.
