Micro-Updates

As 2006 flew by and the pressure on my time increased I acknowledged that the update system had to change. So - enter the "Micro-update". Rather than wait for large chunk of time to do a swathe of updates - because that just isn't going to happen - henceforth I will provide snippets of update to the Museum's exhibits. They will be listed on the Flight Sim Museumhome page and I will only send out a newsletter when there is a lot of new material to read.

" I realy enjoyed reading through your website, there were some sims I played and almost had forgotten. But there was one I considered very important and couldn't find, it was "Their finest Hour the Battle of Britain" by Lawrence Holland and Lucasfilm games. I'm not quite sure when it came out, probably around 1990, it was the first Sim I played, I was seven! It would be realy great if you could ad it to the site. Thanks for the wonderfull tour through your Museum, keep up the good work. Greatings 76IAP.-Maennis"

C-130 Hercules for  Microsoft Flight Sims 2004.

Since the freeware and published add-ons to the Microsoft flight sims outnumber all others by over 1000 to 1 (quite literally !!!), I've created separate index pages for them:
  • Add-ons for the Microsoft series of civil simulations - 1980 - 1989
  • Add-ons for the Microsoft series of civil simulations - 1990 - 1999
  • Add-ons for the Microsoft series of civil simulations - 2000 - 2009

"As well as the exhibits, there are a host of combat flying tips,links and resources - and don't forgot to sign the visitors book. The team at MiGMan's Combat diary have done a fantastic job cataloging the history of desktop flight simulations. We owe them a great many thanks for all their combined efforts, helping us to remember the heritage of this ever-expanding hobby."
