Flight Simulator 2004 Faults and Aircraft Problems

I have recentley been playing on FS9 and thought that it was beginning to get quite boring, same scenery, same aircrafts, same places. And then I thought that maybe it would be better, if there were addons for engine failures, addons for system problems, anything like that or absolutley anaything that could cause the aircraft to crash? Or emergency land? Anything.

Any free links are appreciated but if not just regular ones will do.

Anyone? Oh and by the way if you do give me a link if you know how to could you tell me which file to save it to? Like scenery or effects. And how to use it.

Thanks. Cool

Excellent, that is just what I was looking for thanks very much for the quick reply another website credit I have wittnessed.

Would you or anyone else for that matter recommend FSPassengers as I think it looks excellent. But am thinking, whether or not it is worth the money?

There's quite a few of us who use it.
It certainly adds a whole new dimension to FS, being rewarded for doing everything right, and being penalized for violating the rules or upsetting your passengers.

You can make it as difficult as you want, whether you want to go through a "career"mode, starting in a cessna and earning the rank and money to eventually be able to buy a 737, or if you want to make life a little easier, you can opt to be allowed to conduct flights in every plane you feel like flying today. I would personally recommend the career mode, but I don't know your personal preferences.

So far I've logged some 400 hours with the addon and I am able to buy, and allowed to fly any plane now. To me it has been quite rewarding and certainly worth the money.

But then, I work full time and can't complain about my paycheck.....your financial priorities might be different then mine.

Thumbs Up! Alrighty then.

There are a few things about FSPax that you may run into, which can easily ruin a flight, but nothing that cannot be dealt with.

For example, FS has the tendency to have violently changing winds, (180@50 kts one moment, 360@50 kts the next) causing your plane to go into overspeed. FSPax will penalize you severely when this happens.

The only remedy that worked for me is to turn off the overspeed penalty. I hated to do so, but it's not something that FSPax is to blame for, it's just the way the weather works in FS, and it was either that or flying 50 kts under Vmo.

There are a few more things the program may unexpectedly throw at you, but for me they have really only been minor inconveniences in a great add-on.

did you purchase it from this website? It has been pending for nearly a full day now and nothing seems to be happening?! Is this normal do you know?

Pro Member Captain

No, I bought it through simmarket.com if I am not mistaken.

I was presented with a download link, and the order confirmation screen had the activation key on it....

Yeah thats where I mean but apparantley it takes upto a week because of the international wait or something? And the order reads 'pending'

Pro Member Captain

Oww sorry to hear that. I really can't remember I had to wait.. Perhaps a few hours, but it can't have been more then that.

You're ordering from UK I presume?

Me from Holland...I wonder what the difference is then Think

Does anyone know how to stop the engine failing all the time in the demo and just a normal flight?

Pro Member Captain

Disable the Failure features....
before starting a flight, go to the setup options in the FSPax menu, scroll through the menus until you get to the "Failures" section, and have a look there.

It worked.

Cheers pal. Cool
