2 others with this kind of layout:

They are 100/200 series, you can tell this by the fact the TQ limit is 44 and not 50. 

 

Don't get me wrong fellas, I think the work being done is amazing and am looking forward to seeing the finished model as a current pilot on the DHC6 :)

wait, you actually have a TwOtter Home Cockpit?

 

It seems you missed a post I did on that matter (see below).

 

Yes started long time ago because I love this plane and I thought it suits well a sim for different missions with wheels, skis, floats and bush flights.  But in pause during this sanitary crisis. Working from home is putting me on knees... No energy to do something on it during evenings.  And because i am a private pilot too, I prefer to go to the airfield when i am in shape to maintain my qualification. ;)

 

So here it is   (please answer there if any question to do not mix in the current thread with the great addon aerosoft is working on for us)

Well as my image shown, not in the aircraft we model.... 

 

No problem with that.    The gauges  can be reorganized by ourself if needed later.  I am  thinking of tool like 'FS Panel Studio' we got for FSX/P3D.  I think we will have such tool for FS2020 ;)

 

Sorry for the confusion  I introduced.  Please continue this great work on this great addon !!

I would not count on that at all. MSFS gauges are integrated in the 3D model and not like the old school 2D gauges that FSX used and what FS Panel Studio is capable of editing. If you would want to change the gauges around in MSFS you would have to edit the actual 3D model.

And if you are looking for a nice place to land that fantastic little Otter, try out my new addon.
Rothera Station in Antarctica! And be sure to put on those BAS liveries!

Maybe Aerosoft will release a BAS Dash 7 as well ;)

The good news of the day is that we got some of the gauges to work. And they work with the new engine options of the sim and are pretty damned good. Better then P3D. Still some issue shown in the image, but we are getting there!

I hate it to be the guy coming up with a bit of „negativity“ but, i hope these background textures that look like a carpet are just placeholders, right? 
 

Also, the modelling seems to be kinda lowpoly, i can count the edges of the round gauges by hand. Can we get a bit more detail here so the gauges appear round as they are IRL and not so edgy?
 

IMHO MSFS if optimised enough, as you mentioned in the Brussels thread. Why going All-In on airport details but then going „lowpoly“ on cockpits where we look at for hours? :)

Yes, reasonably modern interiors.

I hope you will include the GTN750 from pms50. Please don't make the same error as with the TwinOtter in P3D where you did refuse to include the GTN750. I think you would loose many buyers if you only build in the original gps from ASOBO.

I would not worry about the original gps from Asobo. Its covered, stay tuned.

IF that happens it may be disappointing in the beginning, but do mind that Working Title are revamping the Garmin G1000 to become the sim default and will be close to 1:1. If I'm not mistaken the rest of the Garmin's will be taken care of as well in time, based on their other Garmin community projects.

Take that last bit with a grain of salt, as we don't have concrete information yet outside the G1000. However, I do think that it stands to reason that whatever is in their community project repo atm, will eventually become a default in the sim, as they're now working with Asobo.

 

Just a hunch.

Anne is busy completing the last layers for the cockpit, getting there!

Jae completed the rivet lines of the floater model. A LOT of rivets.

We also decided to make the cabin and flightdeck in the same model so you can walk the cabin in this model.

I see two autopilots? Perhaps these are selectable alternatives?

 

You mean the two digital systems? That is a pretty common setup in these aircraft.

For the navigation instruments we have decided to use the default systems of MSFS.

 

Makes sense at the pricepoint, custom made Garmins would basically be their own seperate product. It's also not surprising, considering PMDG puts the Asobo Garmin into the DC6 (You're obviously supposed to go oldschool on that bird :) ).

 

That said, I assume ongoing updates to them from Asobo will just work and so they'll get more capable over time?

 

Not a big deal to me though, I wouldn't use a Twotter with complex flightplans anyway, so the Asobo stuff should be just fine for this one.

Sounds good to me Mathias. I’ll probably put it on my Xbox out of curiosity as much as anything else. Thanks for the honest update on where you are at with the project. You did forget to mention Sand 😉 (Barra)

Been into flight simming for 1 year now, and I find Aerosoft more and more as my number one developer (together with ORBX). The CRJ is my number one plane by far now and I will definitely buy the Twin Otter at release. I have many great small airports in northern and western part of Norway where I can't land my loved CRJ, so this will be great.

Have a great football night! And like you Mathijs - football takes my nights now, and MSFS gets to rest a bit this days.
