Sorry, but this stuff is payware. They have some freebie downloads, but the jet pack is $10.00 (ok, $9.95). The lunar module hasn't been released yet. However, after looking at some of the screenshots, these are very high res models, and look worth the price.

Thats cool but this is better. A whole pack of payware quality Stearmans for free from www.flightsim.com (http://www.flightsim.com). I've been flying them around for the last couple of days. The sound is the best part!
They are featured on the FlightSim.com front page so just scroll down to download. Cheers.

that things funny as hell,

the one thing about flying fs2004 is it makes me hate this games visability distance, sound, weather terrain meshs, full world maps with much higher FPS with 30-60 ac that gets so many more fps then we get here, and 6dof, selectable fuel tanks, CEM that works according to pilots manuals so many other things, hopefully BOB will be something outstanding more then graphically.

Make CFS4 mr.gates!

Wow! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Is that for CFS3 or FS2004? Oh just found out it's for FS2004. I'll be placing my order now.

Its for both fs2004 and cfs3 checkout http://www.shockwaveproductions.com

wings of power and firepower, lots of german birds as well.

they sell for 29-39 bucks but pretty cool stuff. I usually fly them in fs9 becuase i dont have cfs3 installed anymore and when i did it was very rare to find people who had the addons. maybe 15-20 people had them.

I dunno stuff like that i dont have a problem with 20-30 extremely well documented and researched aircraft, pilot manuals etc for 39 bucks.

thats why i think its a joke people charge just as much for skins and missions packs with this game and 90% are generated ones.

I dunno i enjoyed cfs3 very much and still enjoy fs9 they do so many things which are more realistic then we have.

compressibility in all ac for example all alts by mach number for starters.

I love fb aep and pf too most flight sims since the 1980s and I had almost all of them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the link Lead.
I would love to have the FS2004 weather engine in a combat simulator. It would be great to download current weather conditions for the part of the world you were flying over and then go into combat. It would also be nice to have more control over the engine functions as well. Hopefully BoB will bring us some of these things. I hope.

FS2004 is a nice product, but it too has its share of problems and omissions:

1) Multi-stage superchargers are not modelled. What you've got is a single-stage blower and that's it. Or if someone knows a way of switching supercharger speeds in mid-flight, then please let me in on the secret too!

2) The ground effect modelling is poor or non-existent. There's no tendency to float above the runway before touching down at all, regardless of the aircraft type.

3) The simulation engine does an adequate job when the plane is well within its flight envelope, but when pushed the planes sometimes exhibit very strange behaviour. The stalls, for example, are often totally non-realistic, and spins are not modelled at all as far as I've noticed.

4) The ATC is there. And that's pretty much all that can be said about it, because it's idiotic.

5) Many plane makers, free- and payware alike, like to call their FMs "accurate" and "historically correct". In reality, however, they can be anything but.

6) FS2004 is a total resource hog when compared to IL-2.

7) The default Microsoft aircraft FMs are just c**p.

Those are (some of) the negatives. On the plus side you've got (among other things):

1) A great dynamic weather system capable of downloading RT weather data for the locality you're flying in @ the moment.

2) Working & user-operable aircraft subsystems. The switches and gauges really DO something!

3) Many aircraft models are very well done & look gorgeous.

4) An _excellent_ navaids subsystem! You've got your VORs, ADFs, ILSs & even a working GPS receiver http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

& that's it... what did I omit/forget?

the worst thing about fs2004 is the default terrain, looks like vomit over a bad mesh http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

and on my dads pc it does some odd thing and itll screw up your eyes.

and yes fms are REALLY dodgy if u push the aircraft about http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

also, is there a way to start in the water? my dad cant find any http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yeah Pingu, the terrain, you're right http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Start in the water? Hmm... if I remember correctly there shouldn't be anything special - you have to find a water runway and then just take off your floatplane from there? But it's been a while now & I usually don't fly floatplanes meself anyway, so I might remember incorrectly here... any FS2004 amphibian captains around to answer this one?

FS Terrain + VFR photoreal scenery (best at 1500ft) + UK Airports improve UK scenery to a limited degree. You get blurry circles where Stone Henge should be etc.

What I really like about fs2004 is the "real" dynamic weather system, and the amount of add-ons available. Also Multi-monitor support is good, especially for using GPS. I have tried connecting GPS to auto route (some what inaccurate) and also to PocketFMS software (awesome once all required maps have been downloaded.) I don't like the stupid ATC, at least its there I guess.

My current favourite "freeware" fs2004 rides are the latest model of the De Havilland D.H.82. "Tiger moth" and some really excellent and complete French light aircraft prop. model packages these include the APM Lionceau, Robin DR221, and also the twin engined Brittan Norman islander D-1BNA-LW.

I would also be curious to know how to start from water too.There are enough float plane addons!

we use slew mode currently, but that can do odd things to the FM http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

FS2004 is cool indeed . . .

But I sure do miss shooting.
