More .air file tweaks, fixed the windows so they don't look like daytime inside, added GPS Antennas on top of Fuselage, minor changes to panels (both 2D and VC), and added FS2002 Realistic night lighting (V2) By Kaveh Payandeh.

Installation:
If you have the original version installed, delete it. Unzip to a temporary folder, then move the unzipped folder (GulfIV) to your FS2004\Aircraft folder. This aircraft will appear in your Aircraft Selection list under Gulfstream. This is for ATC purposes. Put the contents of the Effects folder in the Main Effects folder, then delete folder. Put the contents of the Gauges folder in the Main Gauges folder, then delete folder. Also don't try to unzip the .cab file gulf. Just move it to the main gauges folder. If asked to overwrite in either cause, it should'nt be necessary but that's up to you.

In tests the aircraft handled nicely in FS2004 and cruised comfortably at mach 0.8 at FL420 so it should be fairly close to makers specs.

Editorial

The Gulfstream IV was an aircraft that I immediately put on my “Things to Try” aircraft. Having fell in love with other iterations, this felt like something I wished to enjoy using again. So, I picked up this GMax recreation of the Gulfstream IV.

Whilst an update from an FS2004 model for FSX (thanks to Danny Garnier) for that, this works excellently. But how does it operate in the sky? There’s no errors in how it flies, but is it worth flying?

Does it live up to my rather lofty expectations?

Installation

From the start, I was happy. Before installing this, please note that if you have the original version of this please erase that first.

Then, unzip this to a temporary folder or somewhere you can easily locate. Then move the folder to your FS2004Aircraft folder. Once this has occurred, it’ll come under the Gulfstream listing within the simulator itself. Installation is so easy to manage – but there’s a bit more.

Also, you need to install the Effects folder into your Main Effects folder, and the Gauges folder into your Main Gauges folder. Make sure to put only the contents in, not the folders themselves. If you get asked to overwrite, say yes – however, it’s your call.

Performance

After installation, I was hyped. Thankfully, my hype was well-justified – this flies pretty close to what I hoped for. Not only is the specifications of the aircraft more or less spot on to what I could find from the developers, it just felt so fun and fluid to fly around with.

The Guflstream IV immediately impressed me with the depth of the visual quality, too. the full animations gave the feeling of an aircraft which was alive, as well as excellent additions for added depth. From the new VIP cabin room right down to the gauge lighting, I felt like using this was super simple.

Not only is the aircraft easy to operate, but the animations and various sounds make it easy to know what’s occurring. As such, you should have no problem in learning how to efficiently operate the aircraft just from continued use.

I found that the improvements in everything from the nose wheel steering to the new landing lights just make flying this so easy. If it’s that simple in real life, I’d like to start today!

The mod does the aircraft plenty of justice, with an immaculate interior and a fantastic design. The ease of flying, too, from take-off to landing, is exquisite. The improvements included in this fifth version make a good presentation, too, from the new panel changes to the realistic night lighting addition courtesy of Kaveh Payandeh.

Overall, these depth of changes go a long way to making a very interesting aircraft feel even better. Whilst the real thing is as good as this I couldn’t say, but I was a huge fan of what this take had to offer. Should you be looking for a new aircraft to add to your FSX stable, this is the one I’d recommend at present.
