Ark, when downloaded with PC Game Pass using the Windows 10/11 Xbox app (or Windows Store) has somewhat-obscure application, settings, and save locations. It can make backing up your save games or making settings tweaks more difficult than it would be with the Steam or Epic versions.

While playing the Doom campaign, you may notice a frame stutter or freeze every few seconds, despite an otherwise smooth frame rate. This is common when playing Doom with a video card that has 2 GB or less memory.

A fast rocket-powered sled that can also fly and take quite a beating. Uses plows for low-friction movement along the ground and vertical rockets to allow for fly with a decent level of control.

A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft built in Besiege. Uses rockets for thrust and reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Maneuverability is very good and it's very fast, but it's difficult to control, as you can see in the video below. It probably needs more fine-tuning of the reaction wheels and better key mapping.

This Besiege octocopter uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll. Lift is provided by eight 4-blade props. It is very stable and able to hover with only minor corrections. Maneuverability is slow compared to a quadcopter, but it's easy to fly and smooth.

There is a weight chart of Besiege blocks and items available on the Besiege Wikia, but that site is somewhat slow (130 http requests) and has an annoying bar covering the top. I reference it myself quite often, so decided to make that same chart available here. I also added some newer items and corrected several block names.

This Besiege creation uses reaction control wheels for pitch, yaw, and roll, and rockets for thrust. The outer rockets can rotate to aim back for more forward thrust.

Building a flying machine in Besiege can be very difficult. Building one that can hover and make precise movements, while still carrying weapons, is even more difficult. With version 0.04, the developers made that a bit easier with the addition of Balloons. But you still need movement and elevation control.
