Complete with a fully working landing helipad, as well as official documentation to help you understand the warship and how it actually works, this Deltasim creation changes the entire landscape of FSX. The immense attention to detail on each section makes it incredibly popular with users who want to give themselves something new to try out – ships aren’t a huge part of the FSX world, so this new addition is the perfect way to ramp up your own development and enjoyment of using the flight simulator as it gives you a whole new way to take off and land.

The attention to detail is absolutely amazing, giving you HD textures that shows you this amazing design just as it looks in real-life. The package itself makes sure to make the use of every little feature you would expect to see on a ship like this, with realistic lighting making things look better than ever during the night, lighting up the textures and making each & every aircraft feel better than it ever has in the past.

The small additions that make everything stand out from the liveries to the way that the ship sits in at harbors perfectly is the icing on the cake for many users, as it helps you really get immersed in the way that things are changing. It comes with 3 unique models that make a pretty big difference in terms of the design and style of the aircraft, making it more realistic than ever.

Whatever it is that you love about the Smit Rotterdam, you’ll find it’s spiritual successor here for use in FSX with an almost automated installation process.

It adds a UVW map as well which makes navigation even easier than before, as well as various small props that help to bring the entire package together for added authenticity and realism. This remake of the popular tug boat makes it one of the most useful out there at the moment, ensuring that you have a naval landing spot if you are flying a helicopter which many feel the gam lacks enough of already.

So, if you want to make a genuine difference to your long-term prospects and chances of success when it comes to landing on one of these bad boys in real life, you should really consider this package. It gives you valuable understanding of what you should be dealing with at any one time when landing on a tug boat, and also makes it much easier to actually learn the flight mechanics of the flight in the first place.

If you want to make a genuine difference to your chances of learning and succeeding when using FSX you should consider giving yourself as many options to change it up as possible. This package gives you just that, making it easier than ever to start making long-standing changes. Landing on tug boats is a big part of aviation, especially in a helicopter, and this can be the perfect way to learn how to do just that.

Hello, if there is a model for Flight Simulator, than there is also a drawing. I like to build this ship as a running model. And I like to make the construction with my 3D CAD Rhinoceros software. Can I receive a drawing of the Smit Rotterdam? Best regards, Hans
