Have you tried the Addon_Converter_X?  Demo mode should tell you if it is compatible or not.  Hopefully you updated it to the basic FSX compatibility mode.

It will depend upon which version of the Patch that you have, Doeke: it works with a variant of 3.2.1, but the external textures need to be modified to DX1 - no Alpha, using DXTBMP or ConvimX, as they become somewhat transparent.


Whereas it has a vc, it's a poor model by "modern" FSX standards, and I think there are much better DC-2's or -3's around nowadays.

well, just flight is not a very good aircraft builder and as you said maam is outdated.

I have noticed there is a default fsx (I think) with freeware from rikoooo with BT67

anyone who has experience with it?

It depends on whether you prefer your Virtual cockpits to be "photoreal" or drawings.


In point of fact, there isn't a DC 3 VC to equal the MaamSim version which was made

from photographs of an actual aircraft.

It is very unfortunate that there is little or no chance of an FSX version, as the MaamSim team have stated

that they will be making no more models.

It is a mark of its original quality that although designed for Fs2002 it has survived thus far and will work in

Dx10, albeit without working alpha channels in the textures.


Thankfully, the Uiver DC2, also photoreal, has been completely remodeled

for FSX.

But it's not a DC3.


The other versions, whether free or payware, feature either the default DC3 VC or

a drawing of one, which I find look more like cartoons.


There is room in the market for a really good Dc3 model, compatible with FSX and

that P3D thing and I think it would sell like hot cakes.

It's a shame that none of the top flight developers think so too.

thanks for the update.

I will buy the dc2 from flight1

to modify the maam dc3 in a way workeble for the dx10 sounds very technical for me.
