FS2004 & FS2002 FX: Nick's MASSIVE CRASH FINAL

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details | Editorial
All users of Massive Crash are urged to install this update. The files included address and fix video screen 'wash-out' issues on impact when using a high quality video adapter and/or when the effects quality slider in the simulator is set to maximum. It also fixes "wake visually renders above the water level when operating seaplanes or other water type aircraft." New water crash effects added. Improved frame rates with this release will allow those with slower video adapters to use higher effects detail settings. The effects have also been better tuned for smaller aircraft. If you are installing Massive Crash for the first time, this package is what you want to download. Enjoy! By Nick Needham.

Editorial

As a regular user of flight simulators for some time, I’ve always been pretty unimpressed by the quality of crashing with these simulators. Whilst crashing is a regrettable and fatal consequence of a mistake when flying, when it does occur it helps if it actually feels like a real crash in the first place. The hardest thing, for me, is to actually believe that the crash looks as it should; we’ve all seen the aftermath of a plane crash. To say it’s organized or tidy in any shape or form would be to simply tell a lie, and not give the full truth.

Well, this brilliant little mod for FS2002 and FS2004 makes a massive change within the flight simulators ability to represent crashing. Rather than the old methods that feel like a total afterthought, this makes a massive different to the overall quality of the crash and the way that it looks when you hit the ground. If you are, like me, interested in having every aspect – no matter how negative – look as realistic as possible then you simply need to consider giving this a try.

It makes such a massive difference, completely re-designing the way that crashes occur – and the aftermath of the crash in the first place. If you are looking to find a more realistic crash style that scales and changes to be tuned effectively for the smaller aircraft – explosions sizes are now relative – then it’s an absolute must that you give this a try.

Even things like water crash effects have been added so you don’t feel like you just slammed into a nice big slab of concrete. It’s these little things along the way that make such a telling difference to the overall experience, helping you get a much clearer view and understanding of what a crash would and should feel like when it occurs.

For more realism in your simulator, it really does pay off to have this. FS2002/4 is very outdated now in comparison to FSX so they can look pretty average when you compare them. Thankfully, this mod goes a long way to adding some far more realistic effects to the simulator so that, if you suffer the worst fate, you will have no problem in making it work for you at least in a visual capacity. No more underwhelming crash cycles and features, as the animations and overall effects within the crash have been totally revamped to look the very best that they can.

The designer of this package, nick Needham, is a very talented guy and I’ve used many of his updates in the past. They offer a fresh take on some of the most important aspects of flight in general, and this includes going down and getting to see the actual crash take place. However, I would stress that even though it’s for an older simulator it’s still fairly resource heavy so you need to get used to that if you are using a fairly outdated low-end machine.
