System requirements

FSX and Acceleration expansion pack must be installed for the missions to work or appear. Suggest having a high end PC with at least 2 gigs of ram for best framerates as there are plenty of fire effects involved but we tweaked to best of ability for great looking forest fires and smoke with reasonable framerates.
