MAAM-SIM TBF/TBM Avenger for FS9 - Download Version #16711
MAAM-SIM Grumman/Eastern Aircraft TBF/TBM Avenger for FS2004. Add-on aircraft and scenery package for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004-Century of Flight. This is version 2.0, which includes TBM Patch#1 and #2.
NOTE: This package is not tested with or sold for use in Flight Simulator X. (Later, folks!)
There are five distinctly different aircraft models, in sixteen different liveries, from three nations. The different models vary in engine, flight dynamics, physical features, armament, instrument panels, virtual cockpits, etc.
"Extreme Photo-Realism", digital photographic textures used in every gauge, panel, interior and exterior texture, is a technique we pioneered in FS with the release of the B-25J 'Briefing Time' at MAAM's 12th Annual World War II Weekend.
It requires literally thousands of photographs, so it really helps to own the aircraft! You will see this technique refined even further in our depiction of MAAM's TBM-3 #4 "Old Tanker 9"
Other Avengers in the package feature a combination of photo-real and "hand-drawn" textures by some of the best graphic artists in the FS business.
Digital stereo sounds were recorded from MAAM's TBM, in flight and on the ground.
This edition includes all of these 16 Avenger aircraft:
TBM-3 #4 "Old Tanker 9" - Mid-Atlantic Air Museum

THIS DOWNLOAD, UNLIKE OUR PREVIOUS ONES, CONTAINS ALL THE FEATURES INCLUDED ON THE CD-ROM VERSION!
You also get:
The G-max designed Aircraft Carrier scenery, USS Langley, (CVL-27), a small carrier of the "Independence" class. This ship was the wartime base of the plane depicted by MAAM's TBM-3.
By the kind permission of the authors, the Langley comes equipped with the Carrier Operations Package by Rob Barendregt and Doug Dawson and the FSUIPC.dll needed to run it. These programs are already fully installed and configured for all the Avengers in this package as well as the ship.
NOTE: There are three installation options that will accommodate buyers who already have these third-party programs installed in FS9. We won't mess up your system!
Several Start-Up flights - "cold and dark" start-ups on land and aboard ship - ready to takeoff - final approach to KRDG and the Langley - on the catapult, and more.
Five Avenger FS9 Splash Screens you can install if you choose (not auto-installed against your wishes).
You also get a profusely illustrated and extremely detailed Avenger Software User's Manual in html format. You can read and refer to this on your browser, even alongside your FS session, if you wish.
NOTE: A PDF format version of the User's Manual, suitable for printing, will soon be available on our FREE STUFF pages: http://www.maam.org/flightsim/enhance/tbm_enhance.htm
Finally, you will get a PDF version of the 78-page PILOT'S HANDBOOK OF FLIGHT OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS NAVY MODEL TBM-3 AVENGER III AIRPLANES, AAF Manual No.50-11, dated 1 July 1944 and revised 1 November 1944, in Adobe PDF form. This is a high quality scan, in color for colored pages, of the original manual from MAAM's library.
If you still aren't sold, you can learn all about the features and operations of this precedent setting product by downloading a free copy of the User's Manual from the FREE STUFF page at the MAAM-SIM site: http://www.maam.org/flightsim/enhance/tbm_enhance.htm
Once you have looked over the manual, we're confident you will buy. Besides, we are all volunteers, so all of the money goes to MAAM's restoration projects, such as the P-61 Black Widow Recovery and Restoration Project. Here's a way for you to help in this historic effort and fly one of the finest aircraft models available anywhere for MS Flight Simulator, at a very reasonable price! In fact, you are stealing it - you should definitely add a donation to the P-61 fund while you are here!
RECEIVING YOUR DOWNLOAD
After your purchase is approved, you will receive an e-mail with your private download URL and your key. This usually happens immediately, but please allow up to one hour for receipt of this mail. (SEE IMPORTANT NOTE BELOW)
If your e-mail has not arrived within an hour, before contacting MAAM, check your e-mail client's anti-spam or deleted folders to be sure it has not been diverted from your in-box. The mail will be from email@example.com and will contain your order number. If you still have not received your DL e-mail after an hour, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an URL.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sadly, some ISPs, including comcast.net, bellsouth.net, adelphia.net, sbcglobal.net, hotmail.com, and free.fr have blocked us as spammers for sending "unsolicited e-mails". In our case, these are only the automated responses from the X-cart store software that confirm your registration, order, etc. This includes the message containing your download key, too!
Because of this, we have opened another account with verizon (which has not been blocked) and use it to send keys, but only after we get a bounced message alert. Since this must be done manually, there will be a delay, when this alternate procedure becomes necessary.
You can speed the whole process if you have, and register on the MAAM store, using an alternate e-mail address, such as Gmail, for instance.
You download using your browser, so this will not affect that process.. It's only the incoming mails from us that are blocked. This will make life easier for you and us! While you're at it, if you are a "Comcaster", complain to them. We have, but they want money to take us off their black list, so draw your own conclusion as to the real motive behind their vigilance!
After you receive your download, please make a copy of your aircraft installer in case of future computer failure or replacement.
