The usual discussion will no doubt follow about this panel bit lacking, that avionic not this...

(Although there are some 2D popups for those who need 2D popups...)

But as mentioned I just love looking at the Carenado offerings!

Eh, they're pretty to look at, but that's it. I'm usually disappointed whenever I get one their products, but there have been a couple exceptions.

I did enjoy the 208, 337, and 185, for FSX.

 

Got the 210 turbo for FS9, don't like it much.

I guess it's nice that there's at least a C90 for FS9 now, regardless of who it's from. I certainly commend Carenado for still doing FS9 stuff.

The following is quoted from my post over in the SOH forum:

 

 


This plane is insanely beautiful and packed with tons of animations and features - things like opening doors and windows in the cockpit - window polarizers and seat tables in the cabin - switch-click sounds in the cockpit - clean texturing, beautiful lighting.



If you thought the Carenado C-337 was beautiful, the Beech makes it look shabby!



I'm not a pilot IRL, but I have spent about an hour behind the stick of a real C-90. This rendition has the appropriate stick feel and the right sort of sounds to match. 



Regarding FPS, the framerates are not as good as the C-337s - but not bad, either. They're more in line with what I got from their C-208 or from the Bull Stearman. That's understandable, given the detail, but I think the problem might be the switch-click gauge sound rather than the detail... I think that it might therefore be a drag unique to my system (I've had to delete sound systems from some of my other aircraft for FPS reasons, too - but again, I think that might just be me.)



If you want to see how this looks in FS2004, take a look at the screenshots Carenado has posted of it - both for FS9 and FSX - and that's what I'm getting on my system. If I'm feeling particularly motivated this afternoon, I'll post some screenshots - but I think I might be distracted flying it!

I tested this bird out last night and I must say it's outstanding. Totally on the level of Aeroworx's offering.

 

 

Sadly the usual Caranado initial release bugs are present. Contact points need to be adjusted for this model and I can't stand the landing lights are slaved to the cockpit lighting. This is freeware type designing and needs to be fixed (landing lights slaved to the cockpit lighting that is).

I missed the window polarizers! thanks EM.

 

No contact points issue over here... and no sign of bounciness so far.

I'm surprised at the lighting thing.

When the Baron was released I pointed them over here, to the fix by Ed.

What's the fix for the landing light/panel light problem?  :huh:

 

What video card are you using?  Your screenshot looks awesome.

It is certainly the hardest on FPS of their releases - but I'm still flying it around with no issue. Be SURE to run the DXTfixer!
