This thread is to discuss the mig 29 Fulcrum recently released by Deimos.
I am having fun with the jet and it seems on a par with other jets such as the f14, f16, f35 and freeware f22.
It seems more sophisticated and restrained than the su57. It lets you get away with less as in you will lose control sometimes or experience unwanted movement if you try to pull off insane manoeuvres. The su57 almost seemed like you were just rotating a 3d model sometimes.
It has a number of features not commonly found in other aircraft that might seem like gimmicks or you might like them. There’s a parachute for landing, ability to write your name on the cockpit (it’s selectable in the options, not just set to your pilot name), multi coloured smoke that is in two streams one from each side and seems to be implemented in a different way to how other aircraft do it, making it more visible. There’s a wide variety of vapour vortices including wing tip, fuselage effects and the one where you break the speed barrier initially that forms briefly behind the aircraft.
There are 16 liveries with now on the way. Of particular note are the Ukraine air force and ghost of Kiev liveries and my personal favourite: the tiger with yellow and black stripes.
Is it worth the money? I would say yes. It does cost more than the su57 from the same company but it has more and better liveries, a much more true to life cockpit interior and all those little gimmicks I mentioned. The dev has been pretty active updating the su57 Felon in response to sim updates breaking it unlike some devs. Downsides: all I can think of are the sounds are not from a mig. I don’t know what they are from.
The only glitches I have had so far is that where you write your name on the cockpit, lower case letters get the bottom cut off but if you write in caps like intended it’s fine. There’s a slight glitch on the tiger livery near the cockpit where a stripe gets cut off and one time when moving the camera around in the cockpit something got messed up such that moving wasn’t moving me in the direction I pressed but it was easily corrected and could be a sim bug.
This is now my go to jet and I probably won’t touch the others much.
Please remember this thread is to discuss the aircraft not the developer.
