Take a Flight up with the Space Shuttle in FSX.This time you fly up with the shuttle scenery into orbit.this is only an interesting way to check out the FSX space views and is not to be meant as a challenge flight..as the aircraft is totally controlled from (Houston Control) or the cfg file....

Space exploration and space flight in general is always one of those services and ideas that excites, isn’t it? Being able to get above the sky and above the world itself is always the dream as the long-term goal for what flight simulation will make possible. However, even today we can get some brief glimpses of how this can be possible – take this outstanding FSX Space Shuttle mod, for example.

I downloaded it and instantly enjoyed watching the process take place. Although you cannot control the shuttle itself it still makes it nice and easy to take off and see what it has to offer.

By getting into the orbit relatively quickly you get to witness both the view from the shuttle and indeed what you would be seeing when you actually got into this part of space flight. Shuttle scenery has been included and is deeply detailed, making it even more believable than it may appear at this moment in time.

The whole thing goes together perfectly, making it easy for you to see the space potential that is there in FSX! The aircraft is more or less totally worked on by Houston Control (a cfg file in reality, sadly) so you can just sit back and enjoy the flight.

It’s relatively detailed and has a fair amount of depth included in there so that you can experience the full space view from a proper range of angles. The excellent space cameras provided make it easy for you to see the various views that are included for space, giving you an easy way of managing it all and actually having a chance of seeing the space world in all of its glory.

I was hugely impressed by this and would heavily recommend that anyone who wants to see the space boundaries in the simulator give this a go.
