Aerosoft Aircraft: Twin Otter (for MFS)


Recommended Posts

Looking forward to this in addition to the CRJ that's on the way.

 

If anyone's concerned about the turboprops in MSFS and how the model isn't accurate (e.g., torque rising with altitude), there are community mods out there that fix the issues, so issues with turboprop modeling seem to be aircraft specific, not simulator limitations. I'm confident Aerosoft will present an accurate flight model on release.

Now we are talking :D I can't wait to see the TwOtter on MSFS :)

Very early days but at least you can see we have started the project. This is NOT a conversion but everything will be done new, to the latest standards.

As we have expanded our internal aircraft development team we are now able to run tow full size projects at the same time.

 

This is likely my most-anticipated add-on for the sim at the moment. Out of curiosity, what kind of avionics can we expect, and will there be multiple options? 

 

As far as I know, the Twin Otter has a gazillion of different avionics packages, so I'm wondering if we might get a couple of different options like all analog and glass cockpit. 

 

Thanks :D

We'll only do old style Twotters... but 100 and 300 are planned.

 

Good news. Hoping there will be room for beta testers...

I registered just to say the same. This is easily one of my favourite aircraft in XP11 and thrilled to see it coming to MSFS 2020 at some point. Happy beta test.

Please write Aerosoft Aircraft

I know this is minor.

 

Yet important, thanks for the heads-up.

It's always a great moment when you export for the first time to the sim! 

 

Do not see this as a sign we are close to completion though. This is a full MFS project, with all the trimmings like decals etc. As far as I know nobody has released something like that, in fact as far as I know it's not even completely possible with the current SDK.

 

To give an example of things that are still not sorted out:

rain_Windshield.jpg

See how the rain is shown on the part of the glass that is behind the frames?  You do not see this on the default aircraft because that glass is just a sheet on infinite thinness while we want to do a glass pane of the correct thickness because only then reflections from both sides of the glass are correct.  At this moment there is no work around possible, but Asobo should be able to sort this out for us soon.

 

Another example:

See how the reflections on the panels is super accurate but seems to believe the whole aircraft is transparant? You actually see right through the walls of the aircraft.  Again, it should not be a hard thing to fix but we really would like to use all these things and not make things simpler then they could be. 

 

There are many things like this, but we are not too worried, Microsoft and Asobo are incredibly communicative and do a lot to assist us. There is a lot to learn, but the result should be a massive step upwards from what is possible in P3D V5.

Hi Mathijs,

 

As a cockpit builder based on your existing fabulous addon DHC-6-300 TwinOtter running now on P3Dv5,  I am excited to see this new release for FS2020 !!

 

I know editors got trouble because of the SDK not yet finalized.  It does not help the addons developments.

 

Good  job to the team so far !

 

I'll follow closely this thread now :)

 

Philippe

Philippe, you should post some pictures of your cockpit in the Twin Otter Extended forum!
