And idea for FF X

Recommended Posts

So I mentioned in the top thread, I found a Twin Otter in the USFS colors that is used for the smoke jumpers.  I wonder if there is a way to simulate dropping the jumpers other than white water puffs....

Just a thought.....

Cheers and blue skies....

Hello Matt,

my PayloadManagerX freeware app can do that. You can drop parachutists with it, that actually fly to the ground properly, instead of just dropping out of the sky.

Just be careful with the payload stations, since both apps, FFX and PMX, want to control them. On second thought, you won't be dropping jumpers out of an aircraft that has a retardant tank. But if you do, make sure to add the payload stations for the jumper in parallel to the tank that FFX uses (main screen of PMX), and prevent FFX from using them as retardant tanks (or set their capacity to just 1lb in PMX).

Best regards

Oh, and you can jump too of course. There are a couple of Avatars to choose from.

Best regards
