Freebie from Aeroplane Heaven - rather nice, I thought. Wouldn't want any Hurri fans to miss it. Prototype, two bladed MkI, three bladed MkI (including the obligitory Bader) Daimler Benz engine Yugolslavian and Sea Hurri's...nice engine sounds, too.

Just click on the 'free stuff' on their site.

According the blurb with the download only one was built, had an improved rate of climb, was destroyed as the Germans invaded.

Yes, what is that thing?

BIG thanks for posting this!!!
Aeroplane Haeaven do great stuff, so I'll definately try this out. I had a free P47 that they released for FS2002 (I think) a few years ago, it was fantastic to fly as well as good to look at.

from the site:

"The one Hurricane fitted with a DB601A engine for comparison with the Merlin-engined version was tested early in 1941. The conversion was extremely successful, and experimental aircraft displayed better take-off performance and climb rate than either the standard Hurricane or the Bf 109 E-3 and was only slightly slower than the latter."

Am I the only one who thinks the wingtips look fat?

In general the wings and the tail surfaces look sausagelike.

Since FS9 is so open... how come nobody figured out how to put guns that work on the planes and a decent DM... it would probably blow CFS3 out of the water... LOL, and from all the talk I hear give 1C some competition if done right. Seriously..... how come? From what I undersatnd these warbirds for FS9 have no DMs or working guns right? So FS9 is open... and it is better than CFS3..... so why hasnt anyone modded FS9 to be a CFS?

In FS, they can get nicer looking models because there is no DM.

If the FS modelers had to make 2 DMs, cap segements, and 6 LODs for everything, they would not have time to make pretty planes.

With the stock aircraft, perhaps. But the stock skins in Il2 suck too, so whats the diff?

The default graphics are c**p, yeah, but some FS2004 FMs are actually better than anything in IL-2 - they hit the performance numbers better, are fully slippable / spinnable, both accelerated and normal stalls are implemented & more accurate, etc. The default planes are however just plain laughable FM-wise, that's true!

BearCat: I heard a rumour a while ago of Shockwave working on a combat add-on for FS2004. But that's all it remains - a rumour http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif I've a recollection of seeing it on the SimHQ boards, so do a search there if you're interested and see if you find anything...

In my opinion, after trying the demo version (X), and saw the screenshots that game means to me nothing more than pretty screensaver or something.
Warbirds in game, and I can't shoot with them?

Well I will hardly take the Hurricane or P-51 on tour around Hawaii's... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
I wonder the same thing as Bearcat does... why someone didn't modelled 'real' guns in that game? DM lacking? Hmmm...

As it is the only interesting thing about this (for me) is that Hurricane with nose guns. I've never heard of that although I'm somewhat familiar with the subject.

Yup, and no wonder because it's a civvie sim. HTH http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Some of us, however, do like warbirds outside of shooting the c**p out of them. It's the ├╝ber-sportifness of the beasts, y'see... but let's STILL see if that rumour I mentioned turns out to be true http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Is there any way you can make custom sounds for IL-2, Merlin engined aircraft are very noisy and flat. They sound nothing like the purr of a real Merlin.

I have the Just Flight Spitfire (I've only installed the free demo so far though). The guns do work; with wonderful gunsmoke too!
Unfortunately it seem to fire blanks..... so: nothing wrong with the guns, it's bullets this sim needs!
I was hoping for this possibility (guns/bombs)with the release of 'X', especially when MS promised us a few surprises, but I haven't heard anything at all about it. BTW damage models would also have to be accounted for.

I'm led to believe FSX will contain explosions and fire in a rescue from an oil rig scenario, the demo has a flour-bombing game in it (must confess, I haven't tried it out yet) - probably won't take someone long to adapt these...there is a flak effect already available for FS9, although it's obviously not very dangerous to the 'plane flying through it. That being said, sometimes it's nice just to potter about in an aircraft of my choosing. A bit like that train set I never had as a kid, I suppose.

Major, if you decide to purchase the Just Flight Spitfire package, make sure it's patched. Hopefully put right on the retail discs by now, but available from their site if not. Big patches - they make a nice difference to the textures.
