The Tiger Moth Collection
For FS2002, FS2004 and FSX
The Tiger Moth Collection includes:
The original version of the Tiger Moth Collection for FS2002 can be found at AVSIM and Flightsim.com. This model had over 8500 downloads.
The release of FS2004 saw a few changes in dynamics which caused problems with the original FS2002 Tiger Moth. The aircraft would still fly in FS2004 but trim and handling were no longer correct. On the plus side an advantage of FS2004 is that flight instruments are XML coded and it became possible to make a complete panel from scratch.
In converting the aircraft to FS2004 I have addressed both issues. The flight dynamics problems are cured and I have now rebuilt the aircraft panel with a full set of XML gauges.
FSX the most substantial change is the reworking of the textures to
DXT5 standard. New FSX sections have been added to the aircraft.cfg
file and thumbnails for each aircraft will appear in the FSX Aircraft
Tiger Moth Panel Development
Original FS2002 Panel
The original FS2002 Tiger Moth panel (shown below) had no customised gauges - it used gauges already available in FS2002. Only the Turn and Slip Indicator and the Oil Pressure gauges were accurate representations of the real aircraft gauges.
FS2004/FSX Panel with photo realistic gauges.
With the move to XML coded gauges in FS2004 it was finally possible to make my own. The operating code was easy enough and for the gauge faces I have used photographs of original instruments. Real world Tiger Moths sport a wide variety of cockpit instrumentation so I have made some gauges dual featured to provide alternative dials.
Note: The zips below do not include the Floatplane version because of flight dynamics issues. If solved I will release this variant as a separate download.
