Man I regret not buying FSX GOLD When I had the Chance Years Ago

Recommended Posts


First, you could go the Prepar3d route.

2nd, maybe you didn't know FSX is about to be released on steam: http://www.dovetailgames.com/news/2014/dec/9/dovetail-games-clears-microsoft-flight-simulator-x-steam-edition-for-takeoff-on-december-18

 

Thanks Streakeagle

 

Do you know if the acceleration pack will be available or would this just be plain FSX?

AFAIK they plan to turn the gold edition into the Steam Edition, meaning that the Acceleration Pack will be included. I suppose will see in a few days.

It is supposed to be 100% FSX gold with some minor fixes to support Win 8.1 and the loss of gamespy for multiplayer.

While intended to be 100% compatible with existing FSX addons, they can't guarantee it due to the install differences when using Steam, particularly directory paths vs the installers used by third parties.

I have FSX and Acceleration (and almost never use it), so I have very little interest in the Steam release, but I might get it anyway just in case for the future.

      View File F-14A/B/D Tomcats of The Unsung War (Ace Combat 5)

      What is it?
      A collection of skins for TMF's F-14s featuring the F-14 Tomcats of  Ace Combat 5 :The Unsung War, a total of 6 skins for the F-14A_96 (1), F-14B_96 (1), F-14D_92 (1) and F-14D_96 (2).

      Featuring : 

      5th Fighter Wing, 108th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Wardog" (F-14A_96 and F-14D_96):

      The 108th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Wardog", also referred to as Wardog Squadron, was an auxiliary squadron of the Osean Air Defense Force's 5th Fighter Wing stationed at Sand Island Air Force Base.

      Wardog Squadron was at the forefront of the Circum-Pacific War from its onset. The squadron underwent several changes in command the first day of the war and went on to serve in many of the war's decisive engagements. The Wardog pilots' tactical efficiency was lauded by the Osean military and feared by the Yuktobanians, earning them several nicknames—most famously, "The Demons of Razgriz".
      Both F-14A and F-14D skins included.
       
      Captain Jack "Heartbreak One" Bartlett (F-14D_92) :

      Captain Jack Bartlett, callsign "Heartbreak One", was an Osean pilot, captain, flight leader, and training instructor of the Osean Air Defense Force's Wardog Squadron.
      A veteran F-14 pilot of the Belkan War, Bartlett possessed a distrust of authority and an unwavering loyalty to his trainees, whom he affectionately referred to as "nuggets". In 2010, Bartlett played an important role in both the outbreak and resolution of the Circum-Pacific War between Osea and Yuktobania.
      Features the F-14D that Bartlett flew during the Belkan War.
      VFA-206 (F-14B_96) :

      VFA-206 was an Osean Maritime Defense Force fighter squadron and the carrier air wing of the 3rd Osean Naval Fleet's flagship, the OFS Kestrel.
      After the fugitive Wardog pilots were brought aboard the Kestrel on December 7, Captain Marcus Snow, being the last member of VFA-206, joined them in the newly formed Razgriz Squadron. VFA-206 was likely disbanded after Snow's reassignment to Ragriz Squadron.
      Features Snow's F-14B
      Razgriz Air Command Squadron (F-14D_96) :

      The Razgriz Air Command Squadron, more commonly referred to as Razgriz Squadron and also known as "The Ghosts of Razgriz", was a secret squadron mostly comprised of the survivors of the OADF's Wardog Squadron in the final month of the Circum-Pacific War.
      During its brief existence, Razgriz Squadron was created by and served under the direct command of Osean President Vincent Harling, and was stationed aboard the OFS Kestrel. Under their new mantel as the demonic hero of Strangereal folklore, the Razgriz pilots executed a series of covert engagements, which ultimately led to the war's resolution and the defeat of the Grey Men.
      Features both a livery with Osean Markings, and one without Osean Markings.
      Pilots :
      Each plane's number also corresponds to their respective pilot :

      "Blaze" (The Player) - (016)
      Kei "Edge" Nagase - (007)

      I have finally been able to purchase a decent more recent model PC. I have MS CFS2 & SFP1 running great on it. With all the hard-drive space I have created many installs with specific planes loaded in each install so the random mission generator button will load appropriate planes.
      With MS CFS2 I like that you can define groups of enemy planes to chose from, but it messes up if you dump all your planes in one install.
      Strike Fighters 1 doesn't seem to restrict appropriate planes to showing up when flying over a terrain even if you define friendly and enemy planes in that terrain's 'nations' file.
      What I would like to do is upgrade to a more recent combat flight sim(s). I say sims because Id be surprised to find a game i liked for both WWII props AND jet (missile) combat.
      Yes...I'd like some improvement in graphics, but I like the realism (flight mode;s) to be realistic as possible. I do realize the 'air' file or 'data' file creater or modifiers have a huge impact on flight model realism. For example, I can only remember losing a F-4 to an uncontrolable spin once and that was a stock plane not a mod; while, my MiG-29 will spin if you pull to many Gs at a low airspeed (to much AOA) and its a mod add-on!
      Anyway, looking at pics online it appears that folks are really doing a good job on aircraft for more recent sims...and terrains.
      Can anyone give me some input on what would be a good combat sim buy(s)? 
      My budget is limitted and I can not buy everything out there to see if i like it like back in the day when i had less responsibility.
      Oh, I do think i want to get MS FSX to get modern graphics. There's a payware F-4J/S Phantom available that I think I want.
      However, the VC and skin of my F-4s in Strike Fightes 1 is pretty good really. I would imagine there's probably some pretty good free mod planes for a more recent combat simZ. I'm not THAT picky...I've been living with sims that came out practically in the last millinium for Jeez sake.
      Input please...and thanks!!
