I was looking how the site worked and tried entering DC-9 in place of MD-8x after the ? in the address and although it doesn't give much there is a little bit. Enter this in the address bar: http://www.vansairco.com/index.eng.php?frame=acfts&type=DC-9Under the features it didn't say anything about reflective textures, and the screenshot doesn't appear to have them. So, did they just not mention it or will it not have them. That seems to me to be a pretty big thing not to have on a payware a/c these days/

I believe the come with a redimentary VC... But why would you pay for this when you can get 'Iron Knuckles' by Flight 1? FAR more to it, and MUCH better value.

The reason I would consider getting this is because it includes all versions of the DC-9, not just the -30.

hey guys....i just got the vas dc-9's....vc is not complete as they have indicated on the website, they are working on it and when complete will be available for free download. nice modeling. i love the flight1 dc-9-30, but hey, why have one when you can have the whole series? after a quick spin, flies very nicely! frame rates are the best of any add-on ive purchased in months!!!! i only have a few minor issues at the moment. there doesnt seem to be a manual. dont know what keyboard commands to use for the doors (other than the main forward entry door, which is very realistic in the opening/closing sequence) and the rotating beacon needs some help. that's it so far, visually!!!like i said, the whole series is excellant on frame rates and i'm hoping once the repainters start cranking out their work, im gonna have AI dc-9's all over the place:)shep

But then again you have to pay extra for each livery (not a major gripe for me, who needs 100 liveries anyway) and get no panel or loadmanager...And it's more expensive too...

Nice Gmax Dc-9s. So the DC9s will be freeware? Also any chance of a quality gmax MD-80s with vans aircaft after the DC9s? I was just wondering. Thank You,

The Vans Dc-9,I bought it, well worth the investment as it has all the beauties of the Dc-9 family. The other liveries are not at cost, after your buy the Dc-9 package the rest of the liveries are free to download, the only issue is that I am having problems with the download and getting the exe file to work properly. anyone else having this problem? So far only the -10, and -20 repaints have been released.....:-wave Tyler Johnson

I can't get the liveries to install either. The exe file does nothing. Maybe someone from Van's can help us

Maybe it is not exactly on the subject but I have mixed feelings of this enterprise (VANS). I bought a Mexican airports package from them - paid almost $60 but the scenery has some problems - I sent them emails with no reply. But they were very eager to answer my questions before I bought the product. Michael J.

hmm...that's very disappointing to hear michael!!! before buying the DC-9 product i decided i wanted the mex airports too but decided to wait till next week when i got paid...that is sooooo out of the question now! i hope they get their act together, because the DC-9 project would surely be a shame to flounder on...wonderfully built models and the whole range...the only thing that keeps me from going nuts over this deal is that i know someone out there will do repaints eventually even id we cant get any from vans....sigh.........FLY TI!!!p.s. just for my fyi...what errors did you find in the mex airports product???

>p.s. just for my fyi...what errors did you find in the mex >airports product??? I did not try every single airport - and there is close to 50+ of them but I tried maybe 10 and found some weird errors in some of them. First at one or two airports I found huge (out of scale) trees right on the approach path so when you are right on the glideslope you will hit them ... not too good. And trees that are away from the path are fine .. interesting. Then another airport would disappear as soon as I turned the nose of my aircraft towrads it (so I can only look at the airport through side windows). This may not be a bug but I couldn't understand why some airport-name letters (on buildings) are sharp but others are completely fuzzy. For example 'Cozumel' lettering looks horrible. There were some other bugs but I forgot - I tested it a few months ago. Michael J.

Hi, I recently purchased their scenery package and its excellent. I have not seen any problems that you mention. Mabye you point them out and I'll see if I have the same errors. When I purchased their product I sent them an email to register and they responded really fast, it was before they released the DC-9s so they are probably a bit busy right now.Best of luckRegards,Alejandro Velascohttp://chaquetines.com
