Explore the next frontier
Take part in the journey long overdue: check your pressure suit, strap
yourself into the MoonHopper and blast off on a prospecting journey into the
heart of a deep lunar rille. Take control of a lunar cargo shuttle and deliver
supplies to a remote lunar geological survey party. Take passengers that have
just disembarked from an Earth shuttle to the polar water mining facility. Or,
just take off and explore the scenery unlike anything seen in Flight Simulator
On a planetary scale
TerraBuilder Moon is a comprehensive expansion package that turns Flight
Simulator's entire Earth scenery into a highly detailed world of craters, lava
channels, rilles and dusty regolith (lunar soil). This is not just a localized
scenery that you can "fly out" of, or an enclosed arena with a roof for a sky
that will simulate the lunar environment on a scale of a few square
kilometers... Entire Flight Simulator environment, the whole Earth, is
completely transformed, from a diverse rainbow of landscape variations that our
planet offers, to one of the "Magnificent Desolation"
(Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11)
Easy to get there
With a press of a single button on the "TerraBuilder: Moon" configuration
panel, your existing Flight Simulator 2004 setup is transformed into a lunar
exploration mode - sky is "removed", rivers, lakes and seas are "drained",
replaced by dusty, flat "marae" (lunar "oceans"). All man made objects are
completely removed and replaced by lunar rocks and boulders, strewn about by
ancient lava eruptions and impacts from cosmic debris that goes on to this day.
Easy to use:
TerraBuilder:Moon is incredibly easy to configure:
With a single click on the configuration panel, TerraBuilder:Moon will make all
the necessary changes to the Flight Simulator and switch from "Earth" mode to
"Moon" mode. Nothing is removed, deleted or changed in the original Flight
Simulator setup - TerraBuilder:Moon uses its own files and directories, where
appropriate, to run. Going back to the "Earth" mode is just as simple: with a
click of a button, Flight Simulator reverts to the original configuration.
In case any of the Flight Simulator's files are in use or not accessible,
TerraBuilder:Moon will detect and inform the user. Even the user's saved flights
and configurations are kept separate and safe!
TerraBuilder:Moon is compatible only with Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004.
TerraBuilder:Moon has the same hardware requirements as the MS Flight Simulator
2004. However, some of the TerraBuilder:Moon landscape features have been
enhanced and will require additional video processing power. A good, 256MB video
card is highly recommended.

A good, high quality joystick with the throttle and Z-axis control is highly
recommended. Pedals can be used for Z-axis control and, although unrealistic, a
flight yoke can be used in place of the joystick.
