FSX Concorde

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details | Editorial

This add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X brings the legendary Concorde to your desktop. This is a fully featured add-on that includes many advanced textures and features such as a full Virtual Cockpit, 3D animations on exterior model, effects including smoke and afterburner and much more. The model is based on the FS France model that was popular in FS2004, but has now been modified and upgraded to be fully functional in FSX too.

Five paint jobs are included with this package. Includes fully animated nose visor, gear, afterburner and smoke effects, VC (virtual cockpit) and much more. Model by the team at FS France.

Comes with the following paint schemes:

  • American Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Air France
  • United
  • Pepsi repaint

This aircraft was one of the most legendary aircraft on the planet until its demise after many technical faults. You can still fly this beautiful aircraft in the virtual world.

Brief History

The Concorde first took to the skies in the 60s and became an iconic airliner for the rich and the famous. It was was ahead of its time; flying at supersonic speeds, this was the first passenger aircraft of its kind. The first passenger flights began in 1976 and completed 27 years of service until it was taken out of the skies and retired in 2003 after a series of incidents and crashes that caused concern. It was too expensive to keep such old technology in the skies, and while it was advanced at the time of manufacture, everything was still mechanical and not computerized and upgrading the whole aircraft fleet would have been to expensive for the operators.

Installation

Just Put in your C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes folder, then copy the contents of the effects folder into the main FSX effects folder and the plane should work!

(Press Shift+F4 to turn on the Afterburner / Press I to turn on Afterburner and smoke effects)

Editorial

As one of the most prominent aircraft of all time it’s no surprise that the Concorde has been covered time and time again in flight simulation – my only concern is that it’s never quite been done properly. It’s such a unique piece of aviation history that it’s obviously a tough one to pull off properly, but having always wanted to try out the Concorde in all of its glory (I never got to fly on one in real life) this looks like it might be the best option out there for the simulation community.

The Concorde

In case you don’t know, the Concorde was first brought to light in the 1960s and became the airliner of the super powerful. It was way ahead of anything of its time – and frankly still makes a lot of modern aircraft look fairly puny – the only thing that held the Concorde back was the fact that it was totally mechanical, rather than computerized. When aircraft started to move into the more technical world, the Concorde was left behind. It’s abrupt end matched with the fact that it could still do a job today means that it holds a very special place in the hearts’ of aviation enthusiasts worldwide.

Made For Realism

Because it was built around the latest simulation product we all love to use, FSX, the actual quality of the graphics and the features is far more impressive than other iterations I’ve had the “pleasure” of using in the past. This re-creation, though, gives you all of those key features that you simply need to get the full experience.

One of the first things I noticed upon installation and actually firing it up in FSX was just how much attention to detail was being paid to the small features. Whilst all of the main graphical features such as the shape and style have been recreated to pretty amazing accuracy, the smaller details really blew me away. When you first hop in, make sure you take a look around the cockpit and then compare it to the real-life thing with images – the similarities are scary!

Additionally, the aircraft itself flies just as it should. If you are looking for booming power that will leave you absolutely staggered, then this is the perfect addition to your FSX hanger. It’s got quality in abundance throughout the design and stays true to the actual aircraft in both performance and looks – what more could you want?

The Perfect Addition

Since it’s an FSX download, too, it has all of those nifty little additions we love to see. Things like afterburner effects, excess smoke burling out the back and those tiny little animations that you see working around you in the cockpit. All of this comes together and makes a genuinely stunning backdrop for one of the most exciting pieces of hardware that has ever been released.

Power, speed, realism – it’s got all of the hallmarks of the perfect addition to anyone who uses FSX on a regular basis, giving you a whole new experience.

Alpha channel fixed using the DTXBmp program Michael mentioned below ... many thanks for that.

One major drawback though following the change from DX10 to DX9 in FSX SE; it's halved my frame rate!

It would appear using the Direct X10 renderer is a lot more efficient. Flying over France using the standard FSX scenery its struggling to maintain 24 fps where I am getting a steady 50+ in DX10 mode.

It's a pity the livery textures are not compatible with the DX10 mode as that drop in frame rate is a hard pill to swallow! Surely the texture issue could be solved ... do we need to convert to the DDS formats that the standard supplied aircraft appear to use? I'm new to FSX and not very knowledgeable unfortunately on the graphical design requirements of the application.

IanThu, 16 Apr 2015 11:05:04 GMT

Found the reason for the livery textures not displaying. It's down to the DX10 Preview option being selected in the graphics settings. This appears to cause issues with some of the older texture formats. Thought this might be useful for anyone else experiencing this issue.

However, I need to convert the glass textures now to deal with the alpha/transparency issue as the windows are now black!

IanWed, 15 Apr 2015 20:50:16 GMT

I've just installed it in FSX SE and it appears to work for the most part except for the fact that I have no textures on the model. I've checked the texture folders and they all appear to be ok and the aircraft.cfg file appears to reference the texture folders correctly.

Can anyone offer any insight/solution to this, the model is simply white no matter what livery I chose?

AdamWed, 25 Mar 2015 13:59:35 GMT

Okay. I got the plane functioning properly. Stick with it and you will have a great functioning aircraft The time and effort that went into making this plane must have been tremendous. The guy could charge a fee for this.

can anyone tell me how to adjust the vertical Sinkrate? Mine is 2000 ft/sec, i dont know how to change this...

Thanks!

Von RichthovenTue, 29 Apr 2014 07:45:02 GMT

Wonderful and an amazing plane once, after many frustrating hours, you have mastered the skill to land it safely in the virtual cockpit mode. I only fly 2 planes in FSX and the Concorde is one of them. It is fast, especially at 60,000ft when your groundspeed is in excess of mach 2.

AaronSun, 16 Mar 2014 01:04:38 GMT

Everything works properly so far. Not bad at all for being free. The only issue I have is I don't see the cluster of options for ATC, radio stack, ect,ect. Am I missing something or is it not an option for this aircraft.

Rating, 7/10. Keep up the good work guys.

Please help! Great aircraft, all works, 1010. But after looking at the video, I saw that that one had an overhead panel. Mine doesn't!!

MichaelFri, 18 Oct 2013 15:25:49 GMT

To make the windows transparent you have to edit the Glass_T.bmp in the texture directories with DXTBmp and make the Alpha channel black instead of white.

Pro Memberflyer65Sat, 12 Nov 2011 08:52:16 GMT

Those of you complaining about the autopilot not holding altitude, you might want to do some research before moaning about it! The concord was designed to accept a VARIABLE altitude into the auto pilot. Concord flew on its own track accross the Atlantic (because it could not be sequenced with slower traffic) and also at least 10 000 feet higher than other commercial traffic - ie about 50 000 feet. Because of this, the autopilot was programmed to allow the aircraft to "hunt" for the best Flight Level according to fuel consumption affecting trim, headwinds etc. Concord was not an ordinary aircraft, and did not operate like ordinary aircraft!

Pro Membercaleb12345678910Sun, 28 Aug 2011 14:29:50 GMT

You Should Make a Concorde in the new United Airlines Livery. But either way a very good aircraft

Sure some of the features don't work but guys, id like to see half of you make a better one on your own. A lot of work goes into modeling and getting these aircraft right (I know, I've tried and failed). So stop knocking the author. As per my experience, 6/10
Pro MemberT-BonepilotSat, 16 May 2009 15:43:07 GMT
Yeah, this plane has a bad cockpit, but a terrible autopilot. Just don't bother doing IFR flights with it, but otherwise, it's not a very bad plane, almost in the middle, so I give it a 6. To get the afterburner, fly and ultralight anywhere, (doesn't matter) and shut off and turn the engine back on when u are in the air. The after burner should work then by pressing Shift + F4 on your keyboard. The airlines are: American, British Airways, Air France, United and... Pepsi?
Pro MemberhairyfilFri, 12 Dec 2008 03:31:15 GMT
It's great gauges don't work at first once however I read that other guys comment it worked fine if i could i would rate this 100/10
Pro MemberlbolenWed, 08 Oct 2008 00:54:17 GMT
Gauges worked fine for me, but I did the following to make it work: Open the gauges folder, Ctrl-A (select all), Ctrl-C (copy), then go to your flight sim/guages folder, Ctrl-V (paste). Then when FSX loads and begins to load the plane, it will let you know that the gauges are not "trusted" etc., just say yes, and when it says some are outdated, keep hitting ignore until plane finishes loading. After all this, the Concorde flies not so bad, rather quick, complete with working gauges! Also, don't try to land too slowly, seems to want to land at a fairly good clip. As far as trying to start the plane, open panel Shift-5 and make sure battery power is on, Fuel is set to auto, all four generators on, then click all four engine start buttons in sequence, Concorde fires up no problem. Hope this sorts out all the above confusion and negative remarks, because it finally worked for me.
Pro MembermikeandikeTue, 29 Jul 2008 20:19:00 GMT
This is ridiculous, on one of my computers all of the gauges work perfectly, on the other, none of them work. The one where the gauges work, I can also use the autopilot.

It has a really good style to it but the cockpit it really bad. It wont hold altitude on its own and it dives to the ground every flight i have my joystick pulled completely back in-order to keep it level. Any advice?

Pro Memberzero1123Sun, 13 Jan 2008 23:13:01 GMT
Nice aircraft, very fast (MACH 2 cruise speed). Gauges works fine (just need little details). However, the landing and take-off is unrealistic. The aircraft can take-off and land at about 60knots but in reality, Concorde's average take-off speed is about 195knots and 160knots for landing. Because of this, I'll give this aircraft a 7. Good job!

Pro Membereagle67Fri, 29 Jun 2007 16:11:06 GMT
I happen to know the person who made this aircraft, the way you make it take off is to fly an ultralight, turn off and restart the engines, then it should be ready to fly.
