a Flash 8.0 Google Maps flight simulator by Mark Caswell-Daniels
If you like this computer game, please set Google as your homepage.
This game is in no way affiliated with the nice people at Google.
PLEASE NOTE: this game is a beta!
It's not actually finished yet and I hadn't intended to release it.
I'm currently looking for work, so please mail this round and post links to
it on forums, as all publicity is good publicity for My portfolio !
Sorry guys, I've had to add ad's. This site is getting crippling
hits, which means hosting fees are going up and I just can't
afford to run it without any income!
Added a preloader, and a map preloader so that the first map tiles
are now loaded in before the game starts.
Added more US locations on request, as well as planet Mars and
loads of Dutch and German visitors, so added Amsterdam
and Berlin. Solved memory issues too, so you can fly for longer
(I try and reply to all emails in person- address listed in game)
COULD I FEATURE YOUR GAME ON MY OWN SITE?
I'd really like to keep this game on my own site to get people to look at my
portfolio, and don't want it on other people's sites at present: especially not
ones with ads on it.
WHY DO PICTURES STOP AFTER A WHILE?
Beta! the pictures never got unloaded from the RAM. should be fixed
now so theoretically you can fly anywhere. I have plans to add a building
in a user defined location that you can shoot at after a number of requests
from people who want to shoot up their exgirlfriends house / workplace / etc.
HOW DO YOU ACCESS GOOGLES IMAGES? PLEASE SEND ME YOUR CODE!
I had to figure it out for myself, and I can imagine there'd be plenty of similar
games out there before long if I told everyone how it worked! If you want a hint
then drop me a line, but keep in mind I'm getting alot of mail at the moment,
WON'T TERRORISTS USE THIS TO PLAN 9/11 TYPE ATTACKS?
They could. or they could use google maps, yahoo maps, msn mapping etc
While i realise its a sensitive issue even including New York in there it's up to
individuals to treat it as it's intended: a game about flying.
I IMAGINE YOU GET ALOT OF HITS ON YOUR SITE, WHO HOSTS IT?
This site is hosted by Goscomb Technologies, they're the most efficient
reasonably priced UK hosting company I've come across (after trying many).
They're also pretty good for flash games creators as they let you run
electroserver and other flash multiplayer engines.
