Outstanding freeware Ships!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to post this for those that haven't tried these and to say thanks. I love sailing in FS and it looks like it will be even better in FSX. There are several ships in the library from "Robert Waszkiewicz - Deltasim Studio" and they are just beautiful. Very detailed, great VCs that include the whole ship, custom effects, sounds, a great experience.Thanks Robert!Regards, MichaelKDFWhttp://www.calvirair.com/mcpics/mcdcvabanner.jpgCalVirAir International


Best, Michael

Welcome to Microsoft Ship Simulator. I just got the Andrea Gail, Very nice for a change of pace. Looks very detailed so don't know if it is suitable for AI. Like to set her up to do trips on her own for when I don't feel like taking the wheel and going swordfishing.Regards, Carlos

I've noticed that some installers have the wrong OR not complete path to FS9. Most installations have to go to "C drive", "Program files", "Microsoft games", "FS9".When you run the installer make sure the path is correct. Browse to where your FS9 folder is located. You only have to go to the FS9 folder, you don't have to go all the way to the aircraft folder.

"Wind in the wires made a tattle tale sound and a wave broke over the railing......"Too bad we can't have big swell's on the seas. But it is FLIGHT simulator after all!BTW, can't remember where I got it but I do have an excellent version of the queen mary I "sail" every now and then.

Just tried the tug - really cool....Try searching AVSIM file library in FS2004 for Juneau. It should come up with a few files which have docks etc. One is the ferry terminal and the other coincerns Juneau warfside etc. Have fun..
