You're telling me that things like this don't even come close to AC6?



That's not even utilizing the highest texture resolutions the engine can use.

** SillyEagle** Hey man where did u get the SR71 fm? Is it fully equiped with guages etc? That airplane is the most incredible piece of machinery I have ever layed eye's on. I have alway's been a huge fan of the Hobu/Black bird. Mach 3 +++++. Everytime another country brakes the airspeed record the U.S. just take the SR71 out of mothballs and takes the record back. It would be awsome to have that for fs 2004 or fsx I have both and they run at 30 FPS or better. Anyway let me knw where I can download or buy it fm tnx bud Dan

The SR-71 came from Alphasim.
http://www.alphasim.co.uk/

They have shots of the panel and stuff on their site. Its a pretty sweet plane, but you have to fly it the way it wants to be flown. For example the engines flame out if the angle of attack is to high at the higher speeds.

When you pass through Mach 1.6, when the shock cones/ramjet kicks in, its simply amazing how fast it accelerates. Its insane really. The flight model is such that it can be flown by its actuall operating parameters and all the performance and time to climb numbers are right on.

I've got the water detail maxed out in that pic. Normally I keep is at low 2.x, but since I was over the ocean with not much land around I was able to turn the water up without too much impact.
