SFS3 - DOS glider sim

Post by anryinvest » Tue Jun 12, 2018 4:19 pm

Hello everyone,
i'm looking for old glider sim called SFS 3.0 Soaring SImulator. Does anybody have it? It's not being sold anymore and not available for download anywhere.

No, I think it's long gone.

I am interested in why you want it though.. ?

I'm in love with old sims and games in general, and like with any other love, it's not that easy to answer why.
Also i tried SFS3 demo, it runs very good on my android phone via DosBox, on small screen it's graphics looks not that bad, more like cartoonish, and i guess it's the most realistic glider sim you can get on phone.
So if someone has it, i would really appreciate if you send it to my mail anryinvest ( at ) ya . ru or share it somewhere.

If you want a good soaring sim for Android phone try Extreme Soaring 3d on Google play store. In free and paid versions. Very good.

timbaeyens, there are only demos and even demo links are dead.
Working link for demo if someone needs: http://www.paralotnie.atomnet.pl/index. ... nosci.html
scroll down and there will be 2 demos and developers emails, that doesn't work now and throw back mail delivery errors.

But there are no full version anywhere on the web, at least i couldn't find.

I spent many, many, many hours with SFS3. I installed it and played it a bit a year or two ago, and was still impressed by the gameplay. There were many "little things" in that game that I loved.

I think I still have the CD.

I was a great fan of SFS3 and -4 in the 1990's and early 2000's
The flight & weather models were already quite good, it kept me proficient while I stopped flying IRL when the kids were small.

I found the patches for the last version (4.12 - 2003) on my HD, but I don't know where the CD is...
IIRC it didn't work on Windows-7, even in compatibility mode.

Apologies for the delay. I was away on business and only just now had a chance to revisit this thread.

The CD that I have is SFSpc 4. I know I had 3 at one point, but the only CD I have is 4. Here's an ISO (I made the ISO on my Mac, because I only have SSD drives in my Windows PC... But I am able to open the ISO on my Windows machine). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jENnO ... 5lO7U9AS_D

Finding a registration key is an exercise left to the user. I'm not going to upload mine unless the original authors give me permission to do so.

Cheers,

Thank you, Mark, that's not what needed, but thank you for your effort anyway.

So, still looking for full version of SFS PC 3.0: The Soaring Simulator.

Horst Jahnke (the author of SFS) is a active Condor Pilot. I don't know his name herein the forum but he is on Facebook too. So if you find him here and ask him.
