DC-3 Upgrade...

Recommended Posts

Hoi Alex,>What I ment was: Did Jan "shave" those "corners" in terms of>16 sided vs 28 or higher sided fuselage. I didn't mean the>shape itself. ;)Heck,no,Alex,as you know that would practically mean trash the current model and start from scratch atleast re the fuselage, internal too of course. Would love that surely, make that 32 or even 64 but i really need a good dosis of inspiration to load up the batteries for such major surgery,like say FSX..... possibly, maybe...?? Hi Azflyboy, >Will the update give the DC-3 and B-25 the current generation of >super smooth VC gauges, or is going and making them part of the >model too much work?Well,yes,afraid so. But see above, lets wait and see what FSX will bring.Fair chance that with this new iteration super smooth VC gauges might well become 'default'. (mind you, that's just me wishfull thinking out loud :+ )cheers,Jan

Hi Jan,The inspiration is there, the time unforunatly isn't. So far I'm loaded up at work which means that I have to work till 21:00, sometimes till 24:00. :( Once the 2 is finished and I have some more spare time up my sleves I'll definatly give it a go! :)Cheers,Alex

Thank you very much!I'm gonna be so happy with this clickable VC... using ActiveCamera I can reach all consoles in an instant... I really hope that in a next version you can also add the radios here, Jan. Nothing kills a feeling of immersion more than switching between 2D and 3D.

Looks great, and looks like I'm finally sucked in by the upgrade ... sorry about the careful approach (some of us are on a low budget) but I have one question -- if I purchase the package now, will I have to pay more later for the upgrade?Cheers,G

felix0iw.gifIt looks terrific ! Please make the yoke optional in the C47 VC as it is in the Dc-3 medium model. Is there a revamping of the gauges too ?On behalf of all the B25 and Gooneys of the world :-hah thanks for the good work !Dominique

This looks GREAT! Once we get the fully clickable VC, this plane will become more of a must have!

Still discovering this wonderful toy :-) A nice nice thing to add in the upgrade would be optional tooltips both to help to get familiar with the cockpit but chiefly to help to tune some instruments which are tiny due to screen size limitations...

Tim:Having been in touch with the MAAM team a while back, the answer is that the upgrade will be done when it's done -- with such complicated technology this is as far as I can tell the sanest approach designers could follow ...Hope this settles the mind a bit.Cheers,Grant

Hi Tim,Grant's right. Jan being Jan, meaning a perfectionist, he keeps finding things he wants to improve. But hang in there. Mark is coming along very nicely on the 'Betsy' package, which looks phenonenal, and the whole shebang should be coming along soon.Bill RambowMAAM-SIM http://www.fssupport.com/maam/maamsim_neon.gif
