FSPassengers, the very popular program from French developer Daniel Polli, has finally ‘hit the streets’ for FSX now too. A lot ofÂ simmers have been waiting for this one, so no doubt Daniel will make some good sales over Christmas. Talk about JIT production!Â FSPassengers falls in the range of ‘utility add-ons’, like also FSEconomy, FSCargo, FSNavigator and the likes. This particular applications adds passengers to your flights….. AND their reactions to your flying! I.e. you need to do things by the book to make them happy, and earn your money! Available here on simMarket of course.
“….. Once the flight starts, every piloting mistake you make will be tracked and stated in a post-flight report: G-force excess, too much bank, rolling outside landing strip, forgetting lights, flaps, seat belts, door opening during flight, excess climb or descent rate, and much more. If your flying technique is really bad, you can hurt your passengers, and in extreme cases you can even hear them scream from the cabin or trigger a failures (exceeding flaps speed for exemple will destroy them) ! Speaking of sounds, there are about 1200 sounds that you can hear in flight: co-pilot, hostess, GPWS, ATC chatter, music, sound effects, and many more.
When the flight ends you will see a post-flight report that will describe how the flight went. If you run a company you will be rewarded with money based on ticket prices, oil prices, distance flown, number of passengers, cargo weight, airport taxes and other things. If you crash, you will lose money (your insurance will have to pay the damages) and your company’s reputation will suffer. FsPassengers also contains a lot of unique features never seen in FsX. See the screenshots section to see some of them……”.
