I remember reading about folks crashing through a mountain to end up fling beneath the map at amazing altitudes and speeds... Can this still happen?

Flying under Kuban map still works with FB 1.0, if you still have it. I recommend installing original but playing Patched version from a copy folder, that way you don't have to re~install every Patch if you want the full 1.0-X.Y upgrade (keep skins in backup folder too).

Here, a (red) TB~3 formation led by player take off from 5km east of map edge. They fly into the grafix cliff at edge of map. This is how you get under the map. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif You can't see the takeoff waypoint in FMB because its off the map edge, but you can change the (X,Y) coordinates in the mission text file with WordPad or some text editor (you can put it thousands of kilometers away and it all still works). A flight of (blue) Fb109 Emails try to attack them, but can't get past the surface to the TB~3s below. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You can see the final TB~3 waypoint and you can change to any aircraft that can takeoff away from official FB airport (some popular aircraft like I~16 cannot, and Ju~87 can't start engines in FB 1.0 but can now). btw, the (X,Y) coordinates in the text files are in meters, not kilometes.

** The fun thing is following the underground aircraft with External View. This does not go under surface, and gives you a zero altitude backpacking trip across the Kuban Mountains. Awsum.

For FB 1.0 or something earlier than Patch 1.21
