Rimshot

More Carenado goodies coming up

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'd like a straight swap for the Aeroworx B200 as far as avionics go. Apart from maybe the Supronov Yak, the iFly NG and the PMDG 747, that Aeroworx B200 was the best FS9 bird you could get, it was light years ahead of the competition and it was about the only thing in FS9 which I thought genuinely required some skill to land. If any of the forthcoming FSX B200s get near it, I'll be a very happy camper.

I agree Al. It is a fantastic bird.

Seeing how we own all the code to the Aeroworx King Air and "Yoda" who was instrumental in the success of the original Aeroworx King Air is co-managing the project with me... I think its safe to say we will surpass "near it"

Thats good news! I'll buy it the day it will be released! I loved the King Air 200 for the good old FS9. But with all the beautiful scenery in FSX, it is nearly impossible for me to go back to FS9...

What's with that name change on Alabeo/Carenado anyway? But a nice choice on the Crop Duster. Didn't know it was planned.

Yup, and if they can include some FSX missions to go with that Cessna crop duster, it would be a lot of fun, if not, I'd probably make some anyway. Gets used as a glider tug sometimes too.

 

The Carenado/Alabeo thing is Carenado supporting a newish team of 3D developers by offering assistance to them in terms of packaging and marketing knowledge, they are what you might call 'under Carenado's wing'.

 

Incidentally, in regard to getting the new B200 near the old Aeroworx one, I know that there is involvement of the original devs and code, but what I was really alluding to, was the fact that the FS9 Aeoworx B200 was such a stand out product when it came out.

 

These days, that sort of feature list is more like the norm, and aircraft such as the Aerosoft Katana have pushed things even more beyond even the impressive maintenance stuff that the Aeroworx B200 featured, thus simply equalling the FS9 Aeroworx B200 would actually probably make it a bit run of the mill by comparison to what else is about these days.

 

Of course the flight modeling would probably still be a cut above the rest, since the Aeroworx B200 was and indeed still is superb in that respect, but I think it would be worth doing something very special with it beyond that, in order that it would be seen as the descendant of what really is an FS9 legend. For example, you might consider trying to have it do some cool icing effects, or maybe an animated talking co-pilot alongside you in the virtual cockpit or whatever - something really cool like that.

Jim,

 

I don;t think any serious simmer, especially one who has purchased F1 products, such as the Citation Mustang would or could reasonably think your Kingair would be anything less...

 

Infact with the G1000 and Blackhawk mods I'm confident it'll be just as if not more popular than your magnificent Mustang.

Might be that the Crop Duster will become my first purchase from them when it comes out. Looks like it's in the same 'ugly but interesting' regime like the Aerosoft Wilga, huh? Maybe I have room for one of those in my hangar.

 

So far, I saw very few reports about their current planes. That 300 is out since a few days.

Orbx I am sure can create some crop flow for you too :Idea:

:dance: Good one.

 

Must admit, I've lost track of all the flows from them. Whatever it reads, it looks very nice, that's for sure.

Thanks Jacoba,

 

It wont be less I can assure you....

Sorry to ask being off topic, but when and where was the F1 officially announced? Got a link with some more details? Being a fan of their G1000 works and the planes 'surrounding' the gauge, it's surely worth a closer look.

I'm disappointed your B200 won't also have the analog gauges like the Aeroworx had both as options. Oh well.

 

Sounds like you will have many other options available for that....

I admit they do pump out planes... honestly not sure how... maybe their beta sessions are too short :Nerd:
