Fictional Air Combat 0.1.3

Fictional Air Combat 0.1.3
I recently discovered YAFS on SF.net: Fictional Air Combat, which is an action flight simulation at an early development stage.

There are 32 bit Win/Lin releases available, but the Linux release contains source which can be easily recompiled for 64 bit systems. (So did I.)

I have not yet tried to find out the licenses/authors of 3d graphics and textures (and don't know if I will). It seems however that they are all original. (And I like them.) There is no sound yet.

Height map for FAC
Levels get created from height maps and a texture placement file, which has an own graphical editor for it (though I wasn't able to find the tool).

Fictional Air Combat reminds me of Thunder&Lightning, which was unfortunately updated last time nearly one year ago.
