Editorial

I always love little mods like this! From being able to move around the sky in a new way to just having a cool little novelty program, this is so much fun to mess around with. It feels fun to be a part of and also something that you can get a lot of mileage from.

The model for the parachute and the actual human falling is very impressive given the limitations of FS2004. That being said, it still looks solid and also makes sure that you can easily understand what is going on as the pilot falls.

The work of solid coding, this can look great and give you awesome stability and control as you fall. It was really easy to work with and assemble, and it made it much easier for me to really get into the idea of what using a parachute from this height would really be like.

For fans of parachute diving or anything of the sort this might be worth getting involved with in the long-term for something a bit more jovial. It’s easier to manage than a normal aircraft and I have to say that the creator, Tom Goodrick, done a wonderful job of making this work.

Highly recommend for any simulation fans!
