Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

  1. This sounds like a great idea.
  2. This is with FSX Steam.
  3. If ever there are plans to do a major update on the CRJ to include things like PBR, I'd like to suggest that the HUD be an optional item to allow for more realism as far as airline options are concerned. Also, with 64bit being the focus going forward, perhaps allowing more independent control of cockpit lights will also be a good feature. Of course, all of this depends on the future of the CRJ and I was wondering if we might see an update in the future that may allow for some of these improvements?
  4. I may have accidentally deleted a file from my Updater Tool and now, even after reinstalling the aircraft the Updater Tool doesn't seem to work or recognize any of my Aerosoft add-ons. Is there a way to download this Tool separately in order to reinstall it?
  5. I've posted these points in the previous topic, but since it will be closed, here they are again. - Twin Otters that operate IFR/VFR flights should have a standby Attitude Indicator since it is required for IFR flight. - The autopilot used on the current Twin Otter should be revisited since D-IVER is the only Twin Otter I can find that has this type of autopilot installed. All images below are from different operators showing the typical factory Twin Otter autopilot installation on the yoke column. It would be best to have the factory autopilot system which offers much more control option. This autopilot was optional in the real world and it can be optional as well for the P3Dv4 version. If the current autopilot unit were replaced by the standby AI and a new optional factory autopilot unit on the yoke column, this might be a much more typical cockpit layout. https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aereotuy/De-Havilland-Canada-DHC-6-300-Twin-Otter/148050 https://www.airliners.net/photo/Surinam-Airways/De-Havilland-Canada-DHC-6-300-Twin-Otter/57499 https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aeropelican-Air-Services/De-Havilland-Canada-DHC-6-320-Twin-Otter/576818 https://www.airliners.net/photo/SkyTrail-ASC-Air-Safaris/De-Havilland-Canada-DHC-6-300-Twin-Otter/234277 - Improved engine simulation - Improved Taxi behavior - Full control over the cockpit lights (adjustable intensity if possible in the real aircraft) - Improved textures and PBR for pilots (Maybe removing the sweater/jackets from the uniform? it just looks odd when flying in the tropics) - Turbulence and cockpit shaking effects
  6. Very true Mathijs, with updated systems (hopefully including some of the suggestions made here), this product will surely see new life. I will still advocate for the original yoke column mounted factory autopilot (optional for the user) over the one that is presently on the twin otter to keep with a more factory standard look.
  7. Sounds good. Hopefully the discussion may result in something exciting in the future for the Twin Otter.
  8. Any news on whether this new project will get the green light?

  10. It looks just a little odd. With most add-ons you can at least discern a little bit of detail but perhaps adding a light tint to the windows or darkening the interior of the flight deck might do the trick with other textures showing gauges etc isn't possible.
  11. Sorry, this is with FSX. I will try to send a screenshot later today.
  12. Using version 2, I've noticed that when looking at the cockpit from the exterior view, the cockpit interior textures (apart from the pilots and glareshield) is missing and shows all gray. Is this something that will be looked at later?
  13. Just a quick update, the GPS unit I was referring to are the older models commonly used on DC-8s, 727s and 707s in their final years such as the Trimble/FreeFlight 2101 or the Trimble TNL 7900/8100 Trimble/FreeFlight 2101 https://www.gulfcoastavionics.com/images/products/2988/2101approachio_plus.jpg TNL 7900/800 http://www.decadecounter.com/vta/pict15/ta7900_1.jpg http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/aviation/2011/a11h0002/images/a11h0002-photo-02.png

  15. Sounds good to me. I’ve been reviewing aircraft addons for many years and this one is very promising. I’d say that if all the systems were modeled correctly, more animations were added and there was an option for a VC with a GPS unit and a TCAS this would be a very popular product that would encourage interest in other DC-8 models. As as a suggestion, although the DC-8 cockpit isn’t particularly dirty, perhaps just a little more variation in the VC textures to add more of a “used” look would be nice.
