Thread: Freeware Gems FOR FSX

    Freeware Gems FOR FSX

    I enjoyed the Freeware Gems for FS9 and I think this thread should be the
    start for FSX freeware gems.
    I know there are some good ones out there that need to be
    mentioned and some that we all may not be familiar with.

    Any takers out there to start this off?

    I propose the freeware aircraft of Dave Garwood, one of the first 'known' freeware developers to embrace native FSX models and give us some wonderful and accurate models like the DH Rapide, Bristol Beaufighter, Hawker Hunters and the best yet, the Auster Autocar......

    Wow didnt know about the Mt Everest.

    Freeware gems?

    Scenery: Tim Barne's Whakatane Airport (NZ), Ant's Boonah (and proabably the rest but havent tried it out yet), Tim Arnot's Enstone.

    Aircraft: Was going to mention the Auster Autocrat and Piglets marvels (my favourite is the Zlin Z50) but beaten to it. Others are Empek's SZD-30 Pirat and the T-45 Goshawk and F-14 Tomcat by Dino Cattaneo

    Is there a package for improved AI engine sounds? I find the stock FSX ones a bit weak. I remember there were a couple of progs for FS9 in this vein.

    A difficult thing about this thread is whether to include FS2004 aircrafts which port over to FSX without any problems as well. Well in any case I will limit myself to genuine FSX models. As what one considers "no problems" might be quite different for somebody else.

    Some of the first free FSX models, but still among the best!

    The Bristol Fighter by Robert Bruce. Available at Flightsim.com (just do a search on "Robert Bruce". Be aware that the complete set is 4 seperate downloads).

    Sadly still nothing from Robert later that 28 december 2008........





    The Neoqb Fokker DR1 is must have as well

    Available here: http://www.neoqb.com/fokker/





    Enjoy,

    Dino Cattaneos freeware T-45 and F-14D, just stunning in combination with Javiers carriers!

    The OZx Sceneries, Grand Canyon, Tuscay, Death Valley

    Dave Garwood has a nice Beaufighter, Hawker Hunter and DH Dragon Rapide, too!

    I love Piglets Zlin-50, quite simple aircraft, but it looks and flies great!

    Empeck´s Pirat sailplane is stunning, too, with Simprobe and CumulusX!

    Reminds me that I need to get me some of those nice SimHangar planes again

    I think one should define exactely what is a "jem" for FSX.
    Is it a pure FSX SDK addon, or are FS9 SDK addons tolerated too ? Despite what the "port-over haters" may say, some of the FS9 planes are true jems that fully deserve their place in a FSX SP2 hangar, even if they keep some visual/functionnal flaws after texture/transparency corrections.
    Typical examples: some of the default FS9 planes, like the Comet, the Trimotor or the Vega, are working just perfect in FSX and they have some of the nicest virtual cockpits ever seen.

    While I don´t usually use portovers in FSX due to FPS, I don´t see why they shouldn´t be included if they are good in FSX. It would just be nice if it would be mentioned that they are MDL8 models.

    In addition to the classic's made by Dave Garwood, Tim Conrad and Robert Bruce there are two others I would like to mention.

    The first is the outstanding RWD-14 Czapla by Piotr Mika and Lukasz Kubacki. This aircraft is simply brilliant - the level of detail for a freeware is unbelievable.

    The second is a real favourite of mine ..... Jean-Michel Castagne's sweet FSX Bleriot XI "La Manche". You may not go very far, very fast in this, but this is what real flying is all about!
