before I start I have frankly to state that I don't have any glue about gaming in detail. What I'm looking for is a not too demanding (in terms of add-on equipment/panels) flight simulator for Win and/or Linux/ubuntu, capable to do missions with others in the internet flying together as a squadron in multi Player dogfight environment - preferably with old WWII aeroplanes.
I have neither a sidestick nor a throttle yet (but if you have any recommendation I would highly appreciate) and I don't like to scavenge the cockpits of some real birds I know around me to get their instruments.
What I('ll) have:
32" 4k display
a keyboard (with ruggedized gamer switches and I believe macro switches as well)
a intercom headset
in the next 2-3 weeks a Hades Canyon NUC, 2x8GB RAM, 512GB SSD.
I plan to add a sidestick and a thrust lever later on.
What could you suggest to have a closer look as a gaming noob to start with?
Thanks a lot.
