The Outside Loop

Outside maneuvers generally cause negative G forces, meaning that instead of being pushed down into your seat, you're being pulled out of your seat. It's similar to the uncomfortable feeling you get when going over the top in a rollercoaster. Fortunately, a computer pilot won't feel a thing. If your simulation takes negative G forces into account, you must perform all outside maneuvers gently to keep from losing control.
