Finally, after 2 years of construction, the long-awaited car has now rolled off the assembly-line with new and improved features. After fixing bug after bug, I have finally achieved the most detailed car model since the Jaguar. It inlcudes full DVC with textures, reflections on the rim/surface/mirrors, 3 different rim variations, carefully made dynamics, and custom sounds. Full animations include steerable front wheels, suspension, opening doors, and movable steering wheel. Works for FS2004 and possibly FS2002. Happy Holidays to all of those at Simviation and to those who encouraged me to go on and finish this project. Jessy Corrales (Katahu).

Editorial

This is certainly one of the stranger mods that I had had the pleasure of using! This remake of the old 1998 Mercedes Benz SL600 – a motor I actually had! – caught my attention and immediately had me firing up my simulator to try it out.

Not only is this hilariously engaging to rally around the world of FS2004 in a car, but it gave me a real appreciation for the sheer scale and style of what FS2004 has to offer – and indeed future sims. This makes a major change to the way that I was used to using FS2004; but how did it stack up to my time in the real thing?

Authenticity

Whilst being hampered quite heavily by the limitations of FS2004, the creator – Jessy Corrales – has done about as good a job as you would have expected. This took over 2 years of construction to get it looking right and driving correctly and the work that has been done is very, very impressive indeed. It’s got great details on the car itself with new reflections being added to help make it look even more realistic along with full DVC with the textures that are included.

This naturally makes a HUGE difference to the way that this mod feels and operates, and certainly makes it easier to get to grips with. Whilst driving instead of flying in the simulated world is a very strange feeling it’s certainly one that I enjoyed taking part in for sure.

Enjoyment

The enjoyment that I got from using this was pretty much absolute. The new sounds mixed with authentic dynamics means that this handles just as it should. The awesome additions of new front wheels, opening doors and a fully movable steering wheel just adds more of those little features that really can help you sell and improve upon your long-term future.

This works in FS2004 but it could also work in FS2002 with some messing around, for sure. Whilst I would stress to anyone using this that its an incredible level of fun, it does take some getting used to so be prepared to feel like you’re back at flight school!

Overall Thoughts

I would happily recommend this to anyone who enjoys the idea of flying around airports in a vehicle that is just so different from normal FS2004. It makes such a big difference, that I really would happily recommend this to anyone who wants to try out something a little bit different.
