Thread: Absolute BEST freeware gems for FSX list...

  1. #1

    Default Absolute BEST freeware gems for FSX list...

    I was looking at things I have downloaded. Some removed, some kept and some I have not decided if it will stay or go.

    Ultimately I have come across (as others probably have as well) a number of those items that you find yourself thinking in some cases... they could have charged for this! This is truely a professional grade add on that shows the love of the hobby and hours of effort and attention to realism and detail. These are ones I have installed and fallen in love with and are amoung those truely BEST freeware add ons I have found so far. Of course these are only "of my own personal opinion" and to be honest I am a picky son of a $#^&*! And even better is that they blend with UTX Canada perfectly.

    Victoria+ for FSX by Jon Patch and Holger. This free scenery covers all of the San Juan Islands and west over to west Vancouver I|sland and North stopping just short of Nanaimo. Very nice. Lots of custom objects and overall a floatplane paradise but there are a number of strips as well. http://fsfiles.org/PA/index.php?act=view&id=25 or search flightsim.com for Jon Patch under FSX scenery.

    Bella Coola FSX by Holger is the Bella Coola Valley in detail. Great area to fly around and take in the natural beuty of the Bella Coola Valley. Search the files here at Flightsim.com for bellafsx.zip. http://www.flightsim.com/file.php?cm=SEARCH

    Plan-G app that provides a Google Earth like moving map and flight planner. Compared to planning flights in FSX, this is a lot easier to use and the map has way more detail. Makes flight planning fun. Can be run on a separate computer that does not even have FSX and it finds your FSX session running on your home network and shows you real time moving map on Google Earth! http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/

    FTX Freeware Tons of freebies! These guys are nuts! http://fullterrain.com/freeware.html
    High Def repaints and detailed cockpit environments for Carenado Mooney, C182 and C154 planes!
    FTX BOB Walk around client. A litte man to walk around your scenery with to see things up close and personal! Check out that new airport you just downloaded from person view on foot!
    FTX Blue Demo scenery for all of Tasmania! Breathtaking. Numerous airports for Tasmania!
    FTX NA Blue PNW demo! Entire Olypic Peninsula! http://fullterrain.com/product_demos.html

    JustFlight 152- if your into the Justflight Software, you'll like their free Cessna 152. http://www.justflight.com/microsoftc152.asp Thanks Bark0

    OZX Grumman Goose HD Redux 1.20 A full HD re-modelling job of the deafult FSX Grumman Goose. Gorgeous. http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?a...s&showfile=633 Thx Jugador.

    OZX Tiger Moth To quote he who wrote (GeorgeT93) "Anyone that hops over to OZx for the Grand Canyon scenery should also check out Anthony 'Ant' Lynch's new Tiger Moth for FSX. I spent the day flying it, and it's an absolutely fantastic piece of freeware that has earned itself a permenant spot in my hangar. Definitely payware quality and a heck of a lot of fun to fly!" http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?a...ads&showcat=26

    Grand Canyon Scenery Upgrade (TY - Jugador) http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?a...ds&showfile=12

    For carrier operations ... two indispensable files: (From FSXMISSIONGUY) aicarriers2.zip (search the AVSIM file library for this filename) Link: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=112008 Allows you to place a carrier battle group below you. USS Nimitz (Search AVSIM file library on this term) Part1: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=141093 Part2: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=141077
    A free fully-functional working aircraft carrier with people and equipment on the deck (grapes, launchers, even a working elevator ...etc.)

    Nice B52 model (WKUNRT) He likes! http://www.roychaffin.com/rcs-panels.html

    Free Lessons - While not software, this guy is hosting 90 free pilot lessons within FSX using FTX PNW scenery and Carenado airtcraft. http://www.flyaoamedia.com/blog/aviator-90/

    If I think of more I will post them. If others find em and they are payware grade I will add them too!

    I have to agree on V+ and especially on FTX. I have their Blue, Green and Gold areas. Their freebies, plus Ant's 300+ airfields are a must and of unbelievable quality.

    The Tasmania demo is excellent if you want to try FTX.

    BOB is fun and of course I second Plan-G, a must have for VFR flights and planning.

    Default Newbie for Sure

    HeHe. Antti Pankkonen I do believe. He's been around since before the moon. Rotorheads know him due to his AS365 helicopter model.

    This "BOB" must be new. I was to FTX's site several weeks ago, and didn't see "him". I've been using the freeware Dodge Charger to roam around, I'll give him a try instead.

    I'll second their scenery, it is very very high quality!! (at least their airports -- I've installed the Tasmania scenery but haven't flown it much)

    Default Bump! :-)

    Lets not leave this thread in the dust, it could become useful!

    JustFlight 152- if your into the Justflight Software, you'll like their free Cessna 152. http://www.justflight.com/microsoftc152.asp

    For All you Alaska bush pilots-Glacier bay area scenery is great. Its for FS2004, But i dont know if it will work in FSX. If it does, Its a great scenery to have. it has a "Freeze Option" that freezes over lakes to ice in the winter. Wood Lake research center is a nice place to park your plane after a day of flying too.

    Part 2 http://www.flightsim.com/zview.php?cm=list&fid=109714

    Cirrus SR22GTS G3 Turbo Another good and modern General Aviation aircraft for FSX. It may not have a G1000, But it has a Working Parachute system in case of engine failure. http://www.flightsim.com/zview.php?cm=list&fid=127892

    I like the look of that 152. The Glacier Bay is comming for FSX and that FS2004 one will not work.
