Airbus A-300 Series in FLightsim.com! Any feedback yet?

Recommended Posts

Hello Gang!There is an Airbus A-300 series for download at "the other flight sim site" that looks pretty awesome and full of features. Has anyone yet had the opportunity to fly this bird and provide feedback on whether is a good one or not? I'm at work and unfortunately, have no means to test the birds in the pattern. Any feedback is appreciated. By the way, the author's name is Ali Mujtaba from (Flight Sim Pakistan) and the file names are a300ali.zip for the A300B4-200, and a360ali.zip for the A300-600R version.Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert

Hi,It is quite nice, although I have noticed a few glitches, which maybe due to my system.The VC takes a LOOOONNGG time to texture, and also I get some odd texture glitches on the external textures.But other than that it is great, especially when combined with Paul Goldings A310 panel.Dan.

I like the aircraft, but on my computer the night textures are not good, there are dark grey parts on the wings, the middle part of the fuselage is grey instead of white and the passenger door is also dark grey, i hope someone can fix this.Best regards,

First of all let me thankyou for the kind comments and I appreciate the positive criticism. Yes I admit that my aircraft does have flaws and I've clearly stated in the readme. The only excuse that I can give for this is that I'm a novice designer and I don't have the experience or the ability to design accurate aircraft such as POSKY, SIMUBUILD etc. I'm trying my best and with your help I might be able to correct the flaws in the design. I've just released an update which fixes the night textures on the passenger door and the right wing. I'm currently making new textures and re-designing the aircraft which I'll release after my Political Science and Law examinations. I'm also working on the American Airlines Livery which'll be released shortly. Take a look at the screenshot.http://forums.avsim.com/user_files/17829.jpgPlease note that the livery is incomplete.http://flightsimpakistan.com

Hey Ali.Had a spin. Great plane. A few things: The right wing slat texture flickers. The texture in the cabin behind the passenger door (Shift+E=1) facing the cockpit also flickers. When the door is opened, you can see through as if both forward doors are open, but only one opens.Great job sir. Nice plane indeed.

Thank you for the comments. I'm currently working on an update which would fix all niggling issues and improve the overall design. This update won't be released anytime sooner as I'm currently preparing for my exams next month. I'll be releasing a patch which will remove the inbuilt scenery from the aircraft in a couple of days though. Just keep sending in your feedback and observations and I'll implement them on my second update. I apologise for the incovenience. I've released a fix for the right wing and PAX door night textures. Just click away to my site to download them.www.flightsimpakistan.com/air/300.htm Best Regards,Ali

What other software, if needed, and/or where do you have to be to get the interior shots, i.e. flight deck door opening, projector screen, cabin areas, etc. I believe the commands were/are Shift+T, Shift+F, Ctrl+Shift+C, and Ctrl+Shift+V.Also, everybody likes "eye-candy" and I like all the reality around the plane as it sits on the tarmac, but was curious about one thing.I turn my landing lights on when I'm given clearance to taxi unto the active runway for take-off.The only problem is when the landing lights are OFF, the tow tractor is hooked up and I have to drag him to the runway during taxi mode. Am I correct in this or what?To Ali...great looking aircraft being it's your first shot. I'm sure you will work out any of the bugs still existing. Good Luck on your test.

I'm currently working on a major update which'll fix all issues. Just keep your observations coming in and will implement them on my next release. If you wish to remove the inbuilt scenery, you can download the NO-INBUILT SCENERY PATCH from my website. www.flightsimpakistan.com . I appreciate your patience and understanding.
