Quite a newbie question but how do you unlock differant planes in FS2004, do you do the set missions?
There are no missions in Flight Simulator 2004. All the aircraft are available in the program, no hidden aircraft. Flight Simulator 2004 isn't a game in the normal sense. You can't accumulate points, there are no missions, you can't win are loose, you can't shoot anyone down and there are no levels. Flight Simulator is a civil flight simulator that simulates real flying. They make Combat Flight Simulator and it's has levels, ranks and you can shoot down aircraft. There are some additional programs for Flight Simulator that add some aspects of commercial flying but they are extra. Many other aircraft are available for free and for cost on the INTERNET. There are more addon programs for Flight Simulator than any other Flight Simulation program.
