Product Description

Space Shuttle Expansion for Flight Simulator X... It's out of this world! The development team at Captain Sim and the Publishers of JustFlight have done it again and this time they harnessed the skills of a Shuttle-trained Cosmonaut to develop a flight sim first. All six Shuttle orbiters are faithfully modelled and the systems and avionics are re-created to an extremely high level of detail. Software features a video `launch¿ to start the program and set the scene for the journey back to terra firma. Amazing animations include payload bay doors, SRMS (Shuttle Remote Manipulator System), drag chute, radiators and landing gear. Includes a voice package with 19 cues based on actual crew and Mission Control communications. This operates in real time according to the current flight situation. The package includes the radio aids that provide original Space Shuttle -19°/-17° steep OGS glide slope and shallow glide slope for runway 15 and 33 at the NASA Shuttle Landing Facility (X68) in Florida. Manual features a custom tutorial prepared by Just Flight to guide virtual astronauts back to Earth. Bonus version with limited features for Flight Simulator 2004 is included in the package.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Cockpits only positive thing December 28, 2007
By Bill P.
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This sim has some great virtual cockpits. Unfortunately the install was a pain. After 2 emails with support I finally figured out the issue on my own. It will not install properly if FSX is not in the default install location. Even though it appears to find and install to the correct location it will not install one of the .dll's.

As for the flight characteristics- I am disappointed. In the reentry mission you get to simply sit there and watch until atmospheric flight is possible. Their documentation is lacking. Although they provide a 1000+ page Shuttle Manual there is nothing for the sim addon itself. The one reference I could find referred to to manuals/documentation that were not on the disc nor were they installed. Also the FSX graphics at orbit were disappointing to me as well though that is no fault of this addon.

If you really want to fly the Shuttle X-Plane is a much better choice and costs the same for a whole simulator! Even better is the Orbiter Sim which was written by a PhD, has a large community, and is free!

I don't recommend this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible. Does not even work!!! February 6, 2008
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I am telling you now. Do not buy this product. It does not install correctly and will not work. The download that helps this problem that is on the website is does not work either. The support team for this product does not help either. Save your money for something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS! December 27, 2007
By madago
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
After installing this expansion not only did my computer crash(which is extremely rare with XP)but my desktop was damaged and now get an error message when I try to restore it. I tried re-installing the software with the same result. I will no longer trust anything from "Just Flight" again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money! August 30, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this thinking it was going to be at least an ok game, but I was wrong. After I installed it, it worked fine. But, the game itself is awful! Graphics are chopy at best, (and graphics are not a problem with my pc.) Also, it only gives you 3 missions, and all 3 are boring and stupid.. Waste of time and money, and the game made my computer run slow, and seem like it was going to freeze but it didn't.... This game is pointless as is anything from justflight... I will NEVER buy from them again! If I didn't open the box I would have sent it back, but instead I wasted my hard earned money on garbage.... So a word of advise DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a game and definitely NOT worth any money March 17, 2012
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this direct and found out too late that you can't fly the shuttle at all. All it can do is glide in two of the scenarios. Here is an actual support answer:

Q: Does the Space Shuttle have no power, is it really a glider, and must be towed via slewing to altitude before it begins manuevering?

A: Yes, and we recommend to use the three flights included in the 'Space Shuttle' pack:
1. Entry - starts at Entry Interface Point (altitude 400,000 feet, M=26) *
2. TAEM - starts at TAEM Interface Point (altitude 82,000 feet, M=2.6) **
3. Approach - starts at A/L Interface Point (altitude 15,000 feet, 380KEAS)

* - Not included in FS9 version.
** - Starts on HAC in FS9 version.

From: Space Shuttle (FS9/FSX) / Systems Programming (gauges) (QID 631)

So, all you can do is try one of three scenarios, but scenario "Entry" is useless. DON'T BUY.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange May 26, 2014
Verified Purchase
The products expected feature is to be able to command the space shuttle riht fromt he begining of the space shuttle mission. The cockpit view is a bit poor, and you cannot start the mission at the airbase. But otherwise the product was a nice experience to have as an extension for FSX.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had read the other reviews. March 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
This just doesn't work. After installing, uninstalling, reinstalling, troubleshooting, browsing the forums, and banging my head against the wall for several hours, it still doesn't work. I distinctly remember reading the other reviews and thinking, "It couldn't possibly be that bad!" It was, and still is, despite sucking up valuable time I did not have to spare. I got a couple of minutes of pretty simulated Space Shuttle launches, crashing and unresponsive controls, and absolutely no improvement. In short, save your money for something that actually works!

I didn't have any install issues, but there are some controller issues. The graphics are low rent and well below the standards found in FSX. Read more

This product is just an overpriced three mission add on to the FSX. It has little opportunity for using shuttle controls and is not much good as a sim. Read more
