FireFighter X has been updated to version 1.60
- The most prominent feature of the new version is the optional use of FIRMS/VIIRS data. This gives the user the opportunity to fight actual wildfires in the sim.
- The networked multiplayer feature has been expanded to include synchronized weather, refill stations and time of day.
- plus numerous small improvements and bugfixes.
This addon application is not mission-based, but instead it puts you in a completely dynamic environment, where fires live and grow, are aware of weather and precipitation, generate updrafts and general mayhem. And you can test your skills at actually putting them out.
Full multiplayer capability.
Supporting AI aircraft.
Spawn fires at random or in any specific place you like.
Watch them grow and multiply themselves - detailed simulation of wildfire behaviour, taking wind and precipitation effects into account.
Jump into your water bomber and do something about it! Detailed simulation of the retardant drop with visual effect - and it accurately extinguishes the fires depending on altitude, distance and retardant effectiveness.
Use any plane in your FS hangar to fight the fires. FireFighter X will detect the payload stations and load up the retardant/water automatically. Just make sure you do not overload your aircraft!
