  2. Any updates on the FSX version?
  3. This sounds like a great idea.
  4. This is with FSX Steam.
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Sounds good. Hopefully the discussion may result in something exciting in the future for the Twin Otter.
  9. Any news on whether this new project will get the green light?

  11. 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.
  12. Sorry, this is with FSX. I will try to send a screenshot later today.
  13. 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?
  14. 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

  16. 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.
  17. As a new users and a big fan of older airliners, I must say that this is one of the most promising projects I've come across. While there are a few functions not yet modelled, I was wondering what the future has in store for the DC-8? Will there be further updates adding full functionality to the virtual cockpit/systems? Also, any thoughts on adding an optional VC setup which has a modern TCAS and a basic GPS unit? Just a thought for those who want to fly the DC-8 in its last configuration or in the original configuration.
  18. After some further testing it seems like all the lights are now working with DX10 enabled.
  19. Thanks, I am using DX10 along with the DX10 fixer program (Which creates a much more stable FSX/FSX SE performance wise). The Nav lights on standard aircraft work just fine but on the DC-8 they do not show. Landing lights illuminate the ground but that's about it. The beacon light underneath the aircraft also works just fine and is visible.
  20. Quick question, are the navigation and landing lights all DX10 compatible for the 32bit version?
  21. Here is a request for the Freighter model.

  22. Very nice. Just incase you'll be doing a new Winair livery, this new video has quite a bit of detail on the exterior and interior of PJ-WIP
  23. I'm not sure if you are still working on any new Winair paints, but just for your information, Winair now only has these registration PJ-WIQ New Livery https://static1.squarespace.com/static/59839dc0e58c62ee93028117/t/5bf05e9570a6ad8a5c7da8b1/1542479523501/518_PJ-WIQ.jpg PJ-WIU - New Livery https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8842269 PJ-WII - Livery is still in the old colours but the logo has been updated. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8904811 PJ-WIP - New Livery - https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8908963
  24. Hi, my apologies on the photos. Here are a few links that can replace the photos. 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
  25. Just to confirm. Twin Otters that do not have a standby Attitude Indicator tend to be VFR only operations since it is required for IFR flight. So far, 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 Twin Otter autopilot installation on the yoke column. If the current autopilot unit were replaced by the standby AI and a new optional autopilot unit was posted on the yoke column, this might be a much more typical cockpit layout. The last 4 images were the most common.
