Space Shuttle

Recommended Posts

Is there a space shuttle for fs9 that will go beyond the 99,999 feet barrier? Or is it even possible to break the 99,999 feet barrier? Thanks

I don't think that's even possible in FS9, as I think 99,999 feet is a hard-coded limit... I know FSX can go higher, though.....

As the other reply points out FS9 is altitude limited and as you point whilst FSX does allows higher altitudes than FSX, many people have performance issues in trying to run FSX. If it is of any interest, the freeware software "Orbiter" as an alternative to MS's FS2004 and FSX, allows high earth orbits and even interplanetary flight.http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/images/gallery53.jpghttp://www.orbithangar.com/UserGallery/ima...SSretracted.pnghttp://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/Best and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer
