Rana Hossain "Maker of Freeware FlightSim Manager", has released a new freeware MovingMap software. This tool can work on both FS2002 and FS2004, and is very useful while in VFR flights, where it will track your aircraft either in the kneeboard, as a separate window, or over the network.
Although this is no longer the same out-of-this-world modification that was touted when it was first released, this excellent new product is the perfect way for you to enjoy the world of flight simulation in FS2004 with an updated and refreshed take on it. This tool also works for FS2002 so if you are really going retro, it can be a useful tool to give you a bit more navigation nous as you fly.
FSMovingMap was a hugely popular mod when it first arrived as it provided you with an easy way for you to create a simpler solution to watching your flight work out. This program gives you a host of new data to make sure you know where you are flying and how you should be managing your flight; it just gives much more detail and representation in what is now a comparatively bare cockpit.
For old aviation fans who want to go back in time and try out something new, this might be a good place to start with. FSMovingMap may seem like old-hat to more modern users but at a time this was amongst the very peak of flight simulation add-ons and improvements. This gives you access to numerous ways of getting the data, too, from using US Sectional Charts to Terminal Area Charts – the choice is yours.
This gives you a chance to check out something new and engaging that will help you find easier ways to get to your flight. All you had to do was click one simple button on your kneeboard and it would open up, giving you much better flight dexterity and control than ever before. The program automatically chooses the best map for your current location and thus ensures that you can fly with relative ease depending on the map that you choose. This is a very powerful tool and whilst other simulations and mods have copied this kind of idea, at one stage it was pretty revolutionary!
For fans who want to go back in time and give themselves a little memory lesson, or for those who want to see something fresh and exciting take place, this is the perfect location to begin with.
So, where should you start with this mod? You can download it here. It can then be installed with FS2002 or 2000 and more or less from there it’s plug and play – just hit A on the keyboard or click on your kneeboard and you can get this working for you immediately.
The map supply is massive and the improvement this makes to your overall aviation control is absolutely marvelous – it’s one of your most useful allies when you want to enjoy an engaging and simple answer to mapped aviation.
