The Flysimware development team have been working on this one on and off for a while it seems, but I'm very glad that they have finished work on this wonderful recreation of the 1917 Nieuport 24. It's a biplane fighter aircraft created by the French and used during World War I, and Flysimware have done a great job of capturing the feel of that time period, both in terms of the visuals and the feel of the aircraft.
I've found the model to be very frame rate friendly, while retaining an overall high quality. The textures are all nicely detailed and include specular effects and world reflections that help make your flight experiences feel more authentic and seamless. The six included liveries offer designs and color choices to suit a wide variety of tastes, so there's bound to be something there that takes your fancy. The Nieuport 24 introduced some original design elements, including a new fuselage with an improved aerodynamic form and rounded wingtips. Flysimware played into this by adding a service mode to the hangar control panel that allows you to see the inner workings of the nose and fuselage, so that you can really appreciate the aircrafts construction.
Although many 24s were used as advanced trainers and normally flown without guns, Flysimware did the smart thing and included an engine timed working machine gun with some cool visual effects, because who wouldn't want that as an option?
There's a good amount of animations worked into this package too, including a well detailed pilot that looks around and behaves somewhat like you would expect. Which is much more preferable to those that are just completely static and do nothing to help get you immersed in the experience.
The whole package is brought together by the custom sound sets, that do a fantastic job of meshing all of the other elements into a unified whole; it's no longer just an aircraft model with nice textures and cool lighting, but something more than the sum of its parts.
If you're a fan of the era, or just feel like your hangar is missing something with a bit of history, why not check this one out.
