Have quite most of the CS aircraft and although they are all very good to look at both externally and internally, they tend to be a little variable in terms of systems depth and replication. For anyone who doesn't have them however (and doesn't expect PMDG standard systems!) the 707, 737, L-1011 and C-130 are great bargains at that price, particularly the C-130 which is possibly their best product.

Their 707, 727, 737 and C-130 are all excellent products, well worth it at sale prices. If you don't want to spend a fortune, their Triple Seven and 757 are worth a look too. Amd their weather radar and weapon system are fun add-ons too if you fancy souping up your FS aeroplanes with radar and weaponry. Good fun putting missiles etc on your Airbus or 737 lol.

Is the 767 any good in P3D? Does it work properly as a simulated aircraft?

Yes, if you read (and understood) the first post, the sale isn't active yet. It will be tomorrow, which will be 11th.

Is the 767 any good in P3D? Does it work properly as a simulated aircraft?

 

Partially ... A manual edit of the DLL.XML is necessary to make gauges work. With the FMC I have doubts, sometimes a proper T/D is calculated, sometimes not, even if the flightplan seems to be correct and works with other AC (I use the iFly 737 to compare and confirm sometimes).
Else I can conduct and finish long range flights if I take care to keep VAS usage down (low-res settings everywhere).

Saving a situation does not work however; when the CS 767 is the active aircraft strange things happen. It modifies the Default Flight xml in a way that makes P3D not starting anymore after it has been closed after the CS 767 usage - a section of configuration settings from CS is added to that file which makes it "unreadable" for the XML parser. If one removes that section from the Default Flight xml P3D is able to start again.

The same thing happens to save files from saved situations. They can be modified to remove any offending sections from the xml to make the flight startable but the panel settings - especially the status of the IRS' are lost.

Despite these shortcomings I like this aircraft very much. It radiates a certain atmosphere that makes me want to use it regularly for medium haul flights.

I really hope CS would update their 767 to make it P3D compatible, but I wonder if they are still alive.

Cheers
Frank

Alive enough to forage for sale revenue. Dead enough to prevent fixing broken aircraft.

 

Thanks for your comments though.  I think I'll pass.
