Just took a spin around PAKT in a few airplanes with A2A's Accu-Feel. Nice! adds a few sounds to the environment, better rumbling noise when taxiing on different surfaces like grass, gravel, and asphalt. Open the doors and the props wind rushes by. So far I haven't tried it in any of the big tin but for the single and twin engines it seems worth the 15 bucks they're asking for it. It sure made for a nicer flight in the planes I flew.
Install had a glitch, a Microsoft disclaimer popped up for DirectX 10 install but it failed, and seeing as Accu-Feel seems to have installed properly I'm chalking it up the fact that it was probably aborted because a newer version of DirectX was found on my system.
As for the program itself A2A says that Accu-Feel doesn't mess with any FSX config files so the new sounds shouldn't be a pain for uninstalling, and seeing as you can set the various sound levels or simply toggle the addon off it sure seems like a keeper to me.

I just downloade it also. works good in the iFly 738 and PMDG 738. I also found "Ground Services" it's like AES but works at all the FSX airports,
had to mod the Terrace abd Prince Rupert airports in the scenery editor, works good there now. Most A/P i have tried it works great, ( more buttons to remember though)

Well I wish you posted just a little earlier, Ground Services X looks really good but I got stuck on the A2A page and ended up buying the piper cub with the accu-sim expansion pack so I guess I'll have to wait until the 24 hour limit thingy is up before I put another order in :roll: :D

The ground services is good, I have the AES also but you have to buy ALL the airports none from FSX default work,
it is much better but less airports, I have FlyTampas TNCM and just bought Aerosofts "Anchorage X" It's very nice.
I would like to get Aerosofts KLAX X when it comes out but I think I'll save up and get the FTW scenerys as they come out instead

I like the ground service program too. I've had it a few months now. Also have AES and need to get it up and going again on the new computer. This reinstall I'm doing takes forever, can't believe all the stuff I've accumulated.

And Cal, I,m watching that KLAX scenery also. I'll probably get it at some point since I fly the LA area quite a bit.

Lucky brother! I'm game for some small strips PNW has some nice grass ones and you can do some island hopping at the same time. But first I'm going to have to figure out how to put this one down :D

It's actually the Fairchild Porter byTim(Piglet)Conrad. I didn't like it all at first but after flying it I haven't been able to put it down for months. :D

:wink: for 10 CVA "Big Dog" brownie points can anyone name the other connection between this repaint and a real world Pilatus Porter livery?
