DescriptionVertigo is a flight simulator that is focussed on highly realistic simulation of piloting an airplane, with almost no emphasis on combat, although it is present in a very limited form. The game offers a selection of various propeller, jet and rocket engine aircraft:
- Grumman F-14A Tomcat
- British Aerospace Sea Harrier
- Lockheed F-104 Starfighter
- Lockheed U-2
- Vought F4U-1 Corsair
- Saab MFI-17 Supporter
- North American X-15A-2
- Grumman Lunar Module 5
The use of weapons is limited to target practice using the cannons, available if the real-life counterpart of the selected aircraft has those. Cannon fire is also simulated with a high degree of realism, and accuracy will depend on various factors like aircraft velocity and position relative to the ground.
Vertigo was developed as a free, open source programme, with the code released under the GNU General Public License. It was originally inspired by another public domain flight simulator, Fly8.
