I have flown used v5.1 that a friend of mine owns. So when I had an opportunity to purchase v4.0 from
another friend who didn't want his anymore, I jumped at the chance.
I am very surprised to see that is VERY similar to v5.1. Everything seems to be there except the
photorealism and sound card support.
I also notice that there also are a collection of Scenery Disks available (I saw a reference to Scenery
My friend only gave me the one diskette with the excecutable.
1.) What exacly are Scenery Disks?
2.) Are the available to purchase anywhere?
Do you really mean that FS5.1 is VERY similar to FS4.0 ?
Scenery disks are .SCN files which are nice to have when you've had enough
with the old "boring" default scenery. There are some avialable here at
flightsim.com ( I think ) in the FS4 scenery library. I've found a very nice
one here like the FAREA.ZIP - which is a scenery file of Eastern Asia.
Some has to be purchased, like the SD11 , SD12 , USAWEST etc... but I don't think you would
think you'll find these as easy today. Note that you need ASD and SGA for
the sceneryfiles to work !
