Introducing GeoPack 15m (IFR) Scenery Series!
15m High-performance (IFR) Photographic Scenery Series for FSX/P3D

TacPackVRS GeoPack is a new series of 15 meter resolution IFR (mid to high altitude) pan-sharpened, color balanced satellite imagery designed to cover prolific military theaters of conflict throughout the world. GeoPack is the only satellite-based scenery currently available for FSX/P3D that covers such vast areas at this resolution and imaging consistency.

Ideal for military ops: GeoPack is perfectly suited to provide maximum performance and visual quality at medium (10K) to high (30K+) altitude over the widest possible range for fast-movers. This scenery is not designed to provide low altitude local (VFR) coverage. VFR scenery can provide higher quality visuals at low altitude, but these are ill-suited to military aircraft which typically travel at faster speeds and higher altitudes than General aviation (GA) or rotorcraft.

FSX@War

FSX@War Version 1 is now available for FREE download! FSX@War has been designed by and for those who wish to fly military operations in an environment that offers a full sensation of emersion, anywhere in the world with an accurate and realistic reproduction of the landscape and real time weather that only FSX or derivatives, like Steam and P3D, have to offer. FSX@War has a library of nearly 200 static destructible objects (airplanes, cars, buildings, etc.) with most objects having dedicated explosion and destruction effects. It is also a demonstration theater with a hundred fictitious strategic sites (each populated with tens of goals) distributed over the Libyan territory and a campaign of twenty scripted missions allowing the ability to recreate different types of sortie from the destruction of surface to air asset (VRS TacPack required), destruction of convoys and surgical strikes at the heart of enemy territory. This first version of FSX@War is above all, a powerful tool (with full documentation) to allow anyone to build or create anywhere in the FSX world, his or her own virtual war scenario...

FSX@War Features Include:

  • A library of about 150 platforms
  • Integrated tools to build and assemble the platforms
  • Automatic placement SA2 SAM Sites from the TacPack
  • A demonstration theater (Libya) enriched with nearly 70 strategic sites of various types including refinery plants, power plants, air bases, military camps...

  • A "logbook" interface, briefing and debriefing will record in detail the results of your missions
  • In Session Solo or Multiplayer, FSX is thus seen develop for those who wish, a virtual war setting where the return to base or on an Aircraft Carrier, mission accomplished, will be the ultimate challenge ahead!

SWS F-4

Simworks Studios F-4 Phantom II is a tandem, two-seat carrier-capable supersonic fighter/bomber, first flown in May 27, 1958. Designed during the 1950s as an all-weather Mach 2 interceptor, the F-4 Phantom II could boast a maximum speed of more than twice the speed of sound, thanks to its two J79 engines. It was the first aircraft to be adopted both by the US Navy and US Air Force and it served with many air forces around the world in different variants.

We have strived to reproduce the F-4's flying intricacies and feel in Flight Simulator X. The exterior and interior models have been recreated with great attention to detail and we believe that the SimWorks Studios F-4B can reproduce the feeling of sitting in the cockpit of this legendary aircraft!

Simworks F-4 Feature Include:

  • A very detailed exterior model has been created from scratch, using hundreds of drawings and photographs to ensure great detail and accuracy. From the shape of the entire aircraft to the smaller mechanical parts that can be seen, every aspect of the F-4B has been reproduced painstakingly
  • SimWorks Studios' F-4 Phantom Flight Dynamics were designed in order to reproduce the F-4B's pure aerodynamics. The Stability Augmentation System was built using detailed equations from the real thing as reference, thus completing the feel of plight
  • Systems include an F-4B is representative of an early 1960s variant, before AFC-218 and various post 1968 variants of the F-4B and the F-4N
  • An authentic sound set created by Aaron Swindle
  • The aircraft comes TacPack-ready. Any user who owns VRS TacPack will be able to use the F-4's weapons systems against air and ground targets. Non TacPack users will be able to load their stores as well and see their weight and CG% change, but the additional drag created by these stores and modeled through TacPack will not be felt
