    HMS Bounty - FSX ONLY Version


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Ships

    Description: HMS Bounty for FSX - VERSION 1.0
    Built Specifically for FSX - (separate package required for FS9)


    by Milton Shupe, Nigel Richards, Rob Barendregt, Sasha Rieger, and Rob Ibey. Helmsman by Craig "Full" Richardson


    HMS Bounty 18th Century, Tall Ship, square rigger completely wind driven, individually animated and controlled sails, animated flags with direction and wind speeds, animated helm, and Sail Management Window to control all ship functions. Ship responds to wind speeds and direction with yaw, keeling, and pitch depending on sails deployed and yard arm positions. Ambient sounds, variable wind and gale storm sounds, ship's bell, "Salute", anchor weigh/drop all add to immersion.


    WILL NOT WORK IN FS9 as it contains FSX native texture formatting and FSX specific sim interfaces. (Separate FS9 package available.)


    BIG NOTE: The latest version of FSUIPC is Required for the HMS Bounty to work.


    Note: Realism settings should be set to "Hard" for best Wind Effects (Will not work on "Easy" realism in FSX.)

    HMS Bounty for FSX - VERSION 1.2
    Built Specifically for FSX - (separate package required for FS9)


    by Milton Shupe, Nigel Richards, Rob Barendregt, Sasha Rieger, and Rob Ibey. Helmsman by Craig "Full" Richardson


    HMS Bounty 18th Century Tall Ship square rigger completely wind driven, individually animated and controlled sails, animated flags with direction and wind speeds, animated helm, and Sail Management Window to control all ship fuctions. Ship responds to wind speeds and direction with yaw, keeling, and pitch depending on sails deployed and yard arm positions. Ambient sounds, variable wind and gale storm sounds, ship's bell, "Salute", anchor weigh/drop all add to immersion.

    BIG NOTE: The latest version of FSUIPC is Required for the HMS Bounty to work.


    Version 1.2 upgrades:


    1) Further improvements regarding wind effects on yaw and roll based on the confluence of sails deployed, wind speeds and direction relative to ship heading, yard arms angle to the wind, and ground speed.


    2) Auto-Skipper greatly improved for high winds and gusts to minimize the showing/hiding of sails and improve roll with gusts


    2) Tugboat function added in v1.1


    3) Corrected lights positions v1.1


    4) Documentation updates v1.1

    Very nicely done, and an interesting choice for a 'SHIP'. At an average speed of 5 knots one is not going to go very far in a hurry. Given all the time an effort you have put into aircraft this is a welcome addition and a bit of fun in FSX. As I only recently thought about ships in FSX here we go, Off to Tahiti to check her out.

    BF, yes, 5-6 knots average in real life, however, given the limited time we have in the sim, and the fact that wakes do not kick in until around 12 knots, the Bounty will do 15 knots if winds are sufficient and sails are properly set.

    Please take a few minutes to read the .pdf for better understanding of controls.

    Have fun :-)
