Is the DC-10 to Hawaii package as good as they boast?

Recommended Posts

Boy their press release sure does brag that this is the "crown jewel" of FS2002 addons. Pretty major claim to make. I checked the screen shots and the DC-10 and the panel seem to be less than stellar visual quality. The cockpit bitmap seemed FS98 blurry.I want a good DC-10 panel that lives up to DF, PIC and Capt. Sim standards.Anyone else seen this product?Dave

Well, I was considering purchasing it for the DC-10 panel, but I quickly decided not to after doing some research.Indeed you are right, that everything is ported over from FS98. This is nowhere near DF or PIC quality, so be weary. As well, the aircraft are quite rudimentary (the engines used to look octagonal, but they fixed it a bit, except the back of the engines are still blocky).Overall, you'd be much happier with FFG's amazing DC-10 and Staffen or Vanessa Leightower's freeware panels. Hopefully someday a company will make a real attempt at recreating the DC-10 in complete detail.
