While we wait for Black Shark...

Recommended Posts

For those of you who remember or still have EECH...i just stumbled upon some excellent mods for cockpit and land textures and a new .exe that enables 6dof with track ir. I just re-installed the game and was truly blown away how different it looks and the 6dof is truly awesome.


Here is a link to read about the mods: http://www.simhq.com/simhq3/sims/boards/bbs/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=30;t=004091


Unfortunately all the links to the required downloads are broken. But i managed to find the most important file...eechupdater1.0.exe


This file when installed will automatically scan your EECH install and prompt you to download all required mods...works like a champ!!

You can get the file here:


Here is a pic to show the dramatic difference in terrain:



I cant emphasize enough how big of a difference this has made in this sim...i highly recommend anyone interested do it...took about 20 minutes total to install from scratch....ENJOY!!!:icon_supe

Enemy Engaged Apache vs. Havok & Comanche vs. Hokum are the best heli sims what i ever seen/played ...& im playing nowadays too...

...many MODs available more ...4xmpl.: Mi-24 & Ka-50 also flyable...


...but i hope LOMAC Black Shark will better/the best :)

Atop the midnight tarmac,

a metal beast awaits.

To be flown below the radar,

to bring the enemy his fate.

The thing I enjoy most in EECH is letting the battle develop, watching things from the main window, and occasionally jumping into a cockpit to... well, usually lose my side another helicopter. ;-)


The Russian cockpit is the most amazing cockpit ever in any sim if you ask me. It's just so immersive having the copilot beside you doing his stuff. I also like the way you can even watch the MFDs from the external views. (Yes, I know, small things please small minds, but sim-god is in the sim-detail. :-)


EECH isn't perfect though, and it's a real shame the developers had to move on to racing games. I always hoped they'd do a sequel to squash some bugs and silly behaviour, and to and allow you to actually choose targets for the AI, ie control the way the campaign develops. Then it would've become the Mother of All Sims.

same here,quite often i just switch to cinematic camera view and watch the battle unfold,it's the dynamic campaing that i like so much (hint hint!).


as for razorworks giving up on the sim and letting the source code out,the modders have done wonders for MP (still buggy but..) and texture pack's ect.

they all need medal's (or even better cash lol).


Speaking of MP this is the page where u see servers running..




p.s if anyone need's any help with EECH just pm me..ok i think i said enough lol.

The best feature in any helo sim was in Apache Longbow. To be fair I don't really have much of a frame of reference because it the only decent non arcade style chopper game I've played. But you could play co-op as pilot and gunner. Greatwith 2 machines networked side by side. Best fun I've ever had playin multiplayer. Well, that and multiplayer GTA 1 =)
