Hi guys

I just downloaded a copy of Falcon 4.0, thinking I'll give it a shot since it's been years since I played a good jet sim. Was thinking of purchasing LOMAC, but your comments discouraged me. And don't worry, it's not an illegal copy, the game is now abandonware and can be downloaded from the-underdogs.com, among others.

Anyway, I heard there is a large amount of updates, mods and addons available for this game, does anyone know where to get them?

Thanks!

It's a great sim but you need a heap of patches
and the learning curve is pretty steep.
Stii probably the best jet sim if you patch it properly.
I found it too difficult to use all the systems correctly.
Cheers.

Jasko-
I went the FreeFalcon route and have liked it a lot. I'm also just getting into it.
I recommend:
1) Falcon 4.0 off disk.
2) Free Falcon 3
3) Free Falcon Patch 3.1 (with "Cobra")
4) Tom's Hitiles (pay $12 thru Paypal)
5) "BAZT" patch.
6) Cockpit addons and etc.

By far the most detailed and comprehensive manual I've found for all the new avionics is the "SUPERPAK 3" manual. You can find this at Falcon 4 Headquarters website. The original F4 manual won't help you much with avionics details. Good luck and have fun--patiently!

Falcon 4 is the best combat flight sim for offline made to date, period! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

F4.0 is good.. but online play is rather lacking.. that's why I'd take LOMAC over F4.0
That and LOMAC is still being developed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
