NOT YET COMPATIBLE WITH F-35 VERSION 1.2.7. MOD UPDATE IS COMING SOON. IN THE MEANTIME, DISABLE YOUR MOD IF YOU UPDATED THE BASE AIRCRAFT. THANKS.
In January 2022, this add-on was born with a really simple idea: "getting rid of the GPWS warning. And, if possible, make it as a toggle!". I've done that. my first mod ever for MSFS. And from here, moved to other systems (canopy auto closing when accelerating, speed breaks auto deploying on landing, a few more ICAWS messages, etc.)
We are finally at version 1.x of this MOD. This means, all the features I could have wanted to add are finally there! Even a few that sounded so out of reach not so long ago.
Today you know this mods for its main features:
- Aerobatic smoke working in multi players.
- Flares (only work local), with stock management.
- Better lightings (landing lights, cabin light).
- And still the messages, indications, systems and automations that make your pilot life easier... the complete list is just below.
Please note that:
- You require the F-35 payware plane by IndiaFoxtEcho in order to use this mod.
Thanks also to Anarkand who helps me by testing my major updates before I publish them here.
Important: After any update from IndiaFoxtEcho, make sure you remove this mod from your community folder until I release a version compatible.
