This latest edition of the Dirks Software release is providing a whole new range of extra features to the buffeting and stick shaker features amongst a range of other smaller additions. FS Force has been updated and improved numerous times over the years, and this latest update is well worth checking out if you want some help in understanding just how powerful this tool can be.

It works by providing the powerful force feedback effects that you would have originally expected to feel, which makes it much easier for you to lift off into the ground or take off into the air and ensure that you are getting the real kind of release and response that you would have been expecting in the first place. It’s all incredibly exciting and this makes it a lot easier for you to buy into the simulation experience.

Every airplane that you use in this kind of project can be fully modified and customized to have its own totally unique feedback profile. This makes it much easier for you to control an aircraft without any problems whatsoever, and also makes sure that every force can be customized and it’s totally optional as well. This lets you get as realistic as you want, whilst allowing you to stray away from making things too difficult. The experience that you get from the force feedback performance can be as intense, or a light, as you desire; it’s all entirely up to you and how you want the performance to feel.

You will, however, need to have a fully working force feedback joystick as without one the features will not come into play. With this mod, though, you can easily get the help that you need in taking things that extra step further in terms of detail. It will help you get the total feeling of what it would be like to take part in a flight like this, flying through the skies and taking in the joys of the world around you.

As far as this mod goes, it’s still absolutely compatible with the original simulators like FS8 and FS9. To use it, you simply need to download the FS Force 1 package instead of this. If you are using a modern simulator though you can use this to completely freshen up the experience and the excitement of the whole thing, adding a range of extra features to the table.

The fact that it manages to recreate realistic effects such as airspeed, stall buffeting and much more all matching the correct trim forces, you can really feel as if you are in the cockpit of something special when you start to fly using this excellent mod.

FS Force is an add-on module for Microsoft Flight Simulator that provides dynamic force feedback effects appropriate for all phases of aircraft operation, whether you're on the ground or in the air.
