As a huge fan of your traditional aircraft styles, I was immediately drawn to downloading this classic as soon as I witnessed it on the site.
This remake of Daisuke Yamamoto’s F-18 Super Hornet is one that will be going down in my “must have” category for the future; it allows me to try out a wonderful piece of aircraft kit without having to do too much else to understand it or to get it to work. The Super Hornet, now full modified within the confines of this package, feels better than ever. As an aircraft that I know a lot about but have never truly flown in a simulator, this felt like a great place to start off.
It’s been fully re-painted in a design that looks wonderful, as it uses the US Navy’s Demonstration Team design – the Blue Angels. The Blue Angels are well respected for their style and precision as a group and come across as the perfect solution for anyone who wants to see just how unique this aircraft can look when it’s built in blue. This aircraft has been painted to also represent the ‘Number One’ model so you can put yourself at the front of the queue!
The package is something that you need to truly use to appreciate, though, as the detail needs to be inspected close up within the simulator to be truly appreciated. They’ve got all of those little details caught up perfectly and texture designer Mark Rooks, of the popular RSDG group, was a defining player within the creation of these textures.
It all looks rather wonderful, and does everything they need to really help you buy into the format and story of this famous old aircraft. The dynamics of the aircraft are spot on, too, as they do a great job of making it fun to handle and a lot of use to you when you have to make quick and rapid decisions about where you want to fly to.
In general, this entire package does everything you need to help you fully understand why, to this day, the Navy still use the Super Hornet as their means of demonstration.
This package will do a lot of good for those, like me, who never truly appreciated the raw power and control that an aircraft like this brings to the table. If you want to experience that consider beauty for yourself then you should take the time to download this. I’ve added it to all of my machines now as it offers me the perfect route towards getting genuine success and enjoyment from this kind of aircraft – it’s something I neglected in the past, but won’t be doing again!
