1. I cannot seem to locate a recent thread which discussed favorite "cockpit art add-ons" for Falcon4. I remember one guy saying he got a framerate improvement with one of them. I tried out some from the "cockpit art" page at combatsim but it degraded my framerate. Any help in locating it?

2. Is there a discussion/post/page on the web where I can read where ACTUAL F16 pilots say Falcon4 has the right feel -and- ACTUAL F15 pilots saying Jane's F-15 has the right feel?

Thanks for any help.

That would kind of sum it up wouldn't it? It is a worth while question to ask how many military aviators expose themselves to these flight sims. Somebody must know. In F4's manuals the author is a (former?) F-16 pilot and frequently cautions on the realism of F4.

I'll add another question: How popular are desk top simulators among military aviators?

Sorry, can't help on the cockpit art question.

Hi Jake!

You might wanna try the Xis V5.0 cockpit. It increased my framerate by about 3-5 fps. Also its the most realistic cockpit out there IMO.
If youre looking for real viper drivers commenting on the FM, check out the official F4 board at
Do a search for "Cylon77", hes a real F-16 pilot, and hes giving a lot of answers.

Yep, Cylon77 on the Official Falcon 4.0 board knows what he's talking about.

Other real-life F-16 pilots who commented on Falcon 4.0 can be found on the Usenet newsgroup: Robey is pretty popular there, and Buzz Hoffman hangs out there too.
