Complementing Files & Dependencies

Editorial

This mod is something exceptionally simple – but fun – to take part in. It allows you to take a space shuttle which you then have to land properly; it’s harder than it sounds, too!

The shuttle is much harder to calibrate and control compared to many of its contemporaries so it can be a serious challenge making sure that you land this in a good way, flying the shuttle is a whole new challenge. It’s the equivalent of driving a motorbike after driving a car for many years!

However, you will need to pick up the shuttle files created by Andy Johnstone – you can get them here. Once you start up this mission you will have to make a 50 mile trip across the skies to the Shuttle Facility in Titusville, and make the landing all on your own.

It’s something that is a lot of work to pull off and it’s very simple to have a crash when you get here, but if you like a challenge that will take you plenty of tries to get it right then I recommend giving this a try – it’s one of the most challenging styles of this that I have taken on recently.
