Editorial

Whilst I’ve never had the pleasure of taking to the skies in a real Airbus 320, I wanted to try this mod out to see just how close the original was to the real thing. This mod was specifically made for FS2004 which sited me as many of the panel sets for that simulator in particular have grown very old and poor to look at. With this mod, I hoped to make FS2004 look relatively attractive one again.

The designer of this mod, Hector Molina, is someone who I have a lot of time for so what did I make of this latest set of changes and improvements together?

Level of Detail

The first thing that I noticed was that for a simulator with over a decade of history behind it, FS2004 still looks awesome when managed by the right people. The level of detail being put into this is something to really behold, giving me a genuine appreciation for just how much work has gone into this mod.

Not only does it look excellent and do a good job of capturing the right look of the cockpit, but it’s all very accurate as well. The whole cockpit looks the way that it should in terms of giving you the right buttons and controls.

It’s also a piece of cake to manage after a few hours of getting used to the changes, with all of the features that you would have hoped to have seen finally being included here.

Precision in Performance

Another factor that really impressed me was the fact that this does not reduce performances too much at all. It all stayed rather steady and fair throughout, giving me a cockpit that looks excellent and provides a customized range of gauges without hampering performance. It all works in an authentic and fair manner but at no point does this limit or inhibit performance at any junction.

I would happily recommend this mod for anyone still using FS2004 who wants to see a fresher, fairer level of design being implemented within the cockpit of popular aircraft like the A320.
