Great stuff, looks fun. You got some great add on's aint ya?

I flew that route once in 2003 but I took VS. Your SFO really does bare a striking resemblance to the one in real life. You gotta get yo ass over there one day for real!

If you have any more reports let us know.

Did you download anything for the water effects, or is my graphics card just crappy?


We dont worry about small things like that...

Kovi,

The water effects are downloaded from AVSIM.

Go to www.avsim.net and run a search in the file library for 'Calm Water Textures', and it should find it for you straight away.
