Editorial

Having never used the Embraer 170 too much in the past, this felt like an opportunity. I like to hop back into FS2004 from time to time for nostalgia, and this was a good modification to try out.

Immediately, I set out seeing what was new in the third version, having never used the first two versions.

Slowing the Decline

One thing that immediately struck me though was that, for a FS2004 model, it looked very clean. The designers had done a fine job of making sure that this maintained a sharp, impressive look when compared to more modern simulators. Whilst the step down in quality is pretty obvious, this helps to bridge the gap – somewhat anyway.

Also, the added animations are a nice touch. Whilst nothing too exciting – animated flaps, ailerons, spoilers, thrust reversers, wing flexes etc. – it’s a useful addition. The design team who have worked on this have done a pretty good job of making the aircraft feel nice and fresh. The overall look and feel of the aircraft is pretty general, but it’s a rather simplistic aircraft to begin with.

Perfect Potential

Whilst not exactly blown away by it, that comes down to more my prolonged usage of aircraft like this. The Embraer 170 isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but it’s still very fun to fly. If you want to use something a little fresh in FS2004 next time, grab this base package. It’s not got anything added on in terms of incredible new dynamics or over the top cockpit features, but it’s a strong base model.

Therefore, this works as a good starting point if you wanted to see how a base model should work. Got any ideas of making a base model yourself? Then the cleanliness and organization of this should be a good example. Whether it’s for inspiration in modding or to fly in the sky, this is well worth picking up.
