DDI (DYNAMIC DRAG INDEX)

 

The SSW F/RF-104G uses the Dynamic Drag Index concept; i.e. when you load/drop external loads not only is the GW changed but also the drag coefficient is affected and the model aerodynamics change accordingly. This is particularly important in the F-104 where external loads affect greatly the dynamic behaviour of the model.

Every specific model has its own internal layout with custom gauges (e.g. Dutch and German Zippers have their own altimeter etc.).

Also note that the internal layout will change into sub-versions depending on the ordnance you're carrying.

SOUND SET

A custom sound set has been developed from scratch, using live recording to give you a full immersion into the Zipper environment. If you are a Zipper fan,you will enjoy staying outside and 'playing' with the throttle, listening to it's unique voice.


RELEASE NOTES

The Sim Skunk Works FRF-104G came in two basic versions:

    'SOLO' suitable for solo flights with bump and speculars map with all FSX-specific texturing features
    'UBUNTU' optimised for multiplayer without some texturing effects to enhance the FPS friendship.

Even if the SOLO model is FPS- friendly it should not be used in a multiplayer environment for two reasons:

1. It can be demanding on resources and affect your FPS when more than 4-6 players are present.
2. Weapon load-out can be inconsistent between different players.

The UBUNTU model overrides both the above limitations.


USER BENEFITS

The model comes with complete docs including:

    Three pilot checklists (normal, emergency,weapon procedures)
    Zipper hints (a doc that help the pilot to use it effectively)
    NASAR R15A simple user guide
    Original 700-page Flight Manual in PDF format
    User support help desk

Reviews
"This aircraft does for fighter aircraft and the fighter pilot convention of simmers, what PMDG does for the airliner fraternity... I can only say that this is positively one of the finest FSX add-ons I have ever come across... It is clear that careful attention to detail was paid by the developers." AVSIM (Gold Star Award)

An incredibly fun aircraft and I love the new spraying effects. Tha-
t said to make this a 5 star release there's just a few flight model things that need to be worked out, right now it is still difficult to reduce speed because the flaps do not work correctly.

Looking at the price I mistakenly was somewhat skeptical about purchasing RJFF, but how wrong I was. I echo my fellow purchasers praise for this airport and want to add a 'very well done' to SNJ Sim for this scenery. What amazing value for money it is and I sincerely hope that SNJ will continue to provide this quality of add-on. My one request would be that they look to northern Japan and produce some of the airports in that area. I almost did not buy RJFF because I have a number of airports located in southern Japan. Kudos to SNJ Sim.

VIELCON DESIGNS - REALISTIC RAIN SOUND FSX P3D FS2004
Ruston
The sounds themselves are excellent - certainly the best I've encountered for the simulator. That said, there is a noticeable hiccup every time the loop resets which I found irritating and impossible to ignore. The hiccup is caused by a fraction of a second of silence before the rain sound begins right at the start of each .wav file. It can be fixed if you have decent sound editing software - just delete the silence. One file has a fade-in effect - you have to get rid of that, too. I did this and the hiccups are gone in all the rain sounds (both internal and external) that I've managed to coax out of P3D thus far. If you're going to try this yourself, be sure you first back up your original VielCon files before starting. Th-
e recordings are worth the price (to me at least), but the developer really should have paid more attention to the editing. Users shouldn't have to edit sound files in a payware product to eliminate such an obvious immersion breaker. Many don't even have the means to do so. Perhaps VielCon will fix the files for future buyers. If so, I hope a future purchaser will post a review indicating the hiccups are no longer present in the unedited product. In that event, you may consider this a 5-star review. In summary, if you have the software and willingness to edit sound files I fully recommend the product. The editing should take you less than half an hour. If you don't, then these will still be a highly significant upgrade to the default sounds provided loop hiccups don't bother you.

Beautiful Scenery, but I have no ILS or SIDs and STARs all it gives me is direct departures and direct arrivals. I wish they would fix this send an update. I contacted WF and they were not helpful.

Version 1.02 the spray system is much better now. Great They added 2 models and winglets toggle. The flaps flightmodel need more work to properly function as they should. Tested wing drop stall, but it's impossible to recover. It's a really fun aircraft.

Finally, a product that satisfies my need for a vintage aircraft. She sounds, feels and looks real. First, I was a bit skeptical reading a couple of negative reviews. However, for only 12Euros I took the risk. What a wonderful plane I've discovered! Be-
ing a pilot, airplane manufacturer and of course aviation enthusiast, I can tell you that you can rarely find such a product. The cockpit and the textures are almost photorealistic.-
The engine sound in particular must have been recorded from the original or a very similar powerplant, based on my personal experience as a frequent visitor of the British air shows and museums mainly in Duxford where you can hear quite similar sounds. Some say the cockpit sound muffled. That is true because you have to have at least a headphone on your ears. Otherwise, you would be deaf pretty soon by the unmuffled exhaust pipes less than a meter away. Moreover, you must have to wear it for the sake of radio communication as well. You can hear the sounds of the structure, the clicks of the switches and knobs, the wind noise as well when the big 900in3 engine is off. The pictures and the description clearly state that the plane is restored with more recent avionics and other up to date materials whilst continuing to maintain the vintage feeling. For me it is quite obvious in 2021 you couldn’t get into the blue with a single compass or other over 100 years old gear from 1916. Those upgrades are extending the usability of the aircraft. I really hope that realPhysics will create other excellent aircrafts such as this from the same era. I wholeheartedly recommend.

The exterior of the aircraft is very nice, so are the visual effects. Unfortunately it is almost unflyable. During takeoff it is very twitchy, but with a little practice it is at least flyable. During landing though:Even though the stallspeed is at 52kts (interestingly according to the cfg file it is the same for flaps up and full flaps) if you fly at 70kts and try to flare, the nose just drops down and even thoug the aircraft was trimmed perfektly for 70kts you have not remotely enough elevator authority to flare the aircraft. (even Version 1 was better in that regard). I hope this can be fixed, then the aircraft gets 5 stars from me. It is exactly what I was looking for. p.s. I have 13.000 real life hours, so I am pretty sure it is not my fault with the landings.

The product is nice well done very detailed but I think the appron is too white, I wrote to the developer about it and he never replied The star for the map is also missing but the product works very well and it is really nice.
