  • How to Tweak the Flight Dynamics of FS2004 Aircraft - This pdf file is an update for my tutorial on how to tweak the flight dynamics of FS004 aircraft. It has been added to and, hopefully, made more clear in what was originally in it. It is for people who want to learn, or learn more, about updating the flight dynamics of FS2004 aircraft. It won't tell you everything, but it will tell you some things the majority of flight simmers don't know about updating flight dynamics. - by Bob Chicolo

  • FS2004 Round The World In A Prop :- A step-by-step guide to successful round-world flying, including comprehensive advice on choice of aircraft, route and flight planning, fuel management, navigation, dealing with weather and time-changes etc. The recommended route consists of 24 legs and the places visited include Australia, New Guinea, Japan, the Aleutians, Canada, the USA, the Azores, Gibraltar, Malta, Egypt, Bahrain, Pakistan, India, Thailand, Borneo, and East Timor; with plenty of sightseeing opportunities along the way. Robert Christopher's excellent Lancair Legacy 2000 is recommended, but this is not essential as the trip has been designed with 'legs' of around 1000nms. and should be achievable in any of the default FS2004 props. Reasonable flying skills are required - particularly being able to land VFR (i.e. without the aid of ILS) - but explanations are included on the finer points of lining up and navigation generally, so as to cater for newcomers to FS.

  • FS2004 Gauges/DLL Bug Fix: How to use old gauges in FS2004. I have received a lot of questions on how to have old gauges working with my panels, because normally when FS2004 is starting, it says that could not find such gauges,etc..etc.. The problem is because most of the gauges were written for FS2002,FS2000 or FS98, and don't work properly with FS2004, but we can manage that situation by doing some simply tasks.
