i have REX, UTX, some great payware and freeware planes, and finally have FSX to a point where it looks great, and runs smoothly. i am mainly into naval aviation and use the ai carrier package , with a freeware t45 as well. it is a great, great plane , but is intended for training and i have gotten to a point where i can do carrier ops blindfolded in the t45. i want to bump up to the big boy stuff, preferably a super hornet. i have acceleration and do enjoy the standard f18, but it feels kind of bland. it doesnt have to be a super hornet, i only require that it is carrier capable (for both cat launches, and trapping) .
also, i am looking for a scenery pack for a military base somewhere near the ocean. ideally i would like to spawn in a cold and dark super hornet on a well detailed military base, fly out to the coast and do carrier ops, and then fly back to the base. this would be absolute flight sim utopia for me
so in a nutshell i am looking for suggestions for three things
1. a freeware or payware plane meeting all the criteria above
2. a mod to make a plane spawn with the engine off (cold and dark is the term i hear most often)
3. an excellent scenery package for a military base
freeware is preferred, but for something high quality i dont mind paying. thank you in advance for any help, this is an excellent community you guys have going on here.
