Downloaded and installed.

 

Small adjustments that make a big difference. Excellent work!

 

I was beginning to regret ever raising this issue (!) but it seems that it has had real benefits after all.

Nice job.

 

We are very close to a major upgrade for the piston Duke, and that includes of course some gauge surround screws, so I want to be clear that we are not jumping on the bandwagon but planned this and many other improvements in the upgrade!!

 

I could list the improvements but I don't want to violate the rules. Mod?

Rob, sorry I didn't see this earlier. Listing the improvements in this topic would not be an issue. Please feel free to do so.

Rob,

 

Like Tom, I did not see this!

 

Please accept my deepest apologies. Feel free to bang me on the side of the head to wake me up when necessary!

 

This is exciting! Improvements to my favorite airframe!

 

Kind regards,

Thanks Tom and Stephen for allowing me to list some of the upgrades in the pipeline for the Piston Duke:

 

* Multiplayer flooding eliminated...giving glitch free m/p connection

* Textures and panels load much quicker when returning from spot view and optimised for an improved frame rate

* Panel and texture improvements plus more livery and panel variations

* Custom sound set and animations up to Legacy standards, including:

1. User customisable airframe vibrations

2. Airframe reactions to flight and ground handling

3. Flap vibration and failure when too fast

4. Gear up and down clunks and vibration

5. All switches have sounds

 

* Improved start up and shut down animations on props with sound sync to engine compression

* Will now do accurate rate one turn but still with full side slip capability (Note: Response to customer feedback!)

* Improved stall, buffet and spin

* Click Spot removal option for Track IR users

* Improved Engine Sounds

* Optional grass suspension or harder tarmac suspension and accompanying sounds

* Screws surrounding gauges (!!)

* Custom Landing Lights up to Legacy standards

* FSX Carb Heat Bug fixed

* Turn co-ordinator improved

* Gauge needle vibrations when appropriate

* Improved exterior glass and reflections

* Armrest sounds

* Improved exterior shadows

* Open Door Wind and Turbine Sounds

* Improved Gauges and size adjustment

* Dirt and smudges on gauges (optional)

* Improved RXP integration (option for 2xGNS530 and 2XGNS 430 simultaneously)

* More complex generator load modelling

* Improved Landing gear texturing and 3d modelling

* Side Slip wind response

* Brake Squeeks

* User selectable ADF "dip"

* Overspeed flutter on ailerons, yoke vibration and airframe stress on overspeed

* 3d lights

* Yoke moves with trim commands and trim surfaces react to given speed

* 3d blurred props (not a flat plain when viewed from the side)

* New Spinner models

* General flight model refinements

 

There might be more but these are the upgrades I can remember for now. So Sean might chime in with anything I forgot.

 

Best WIshes,

Great stuff Rob and Sean! B)

 

Are some of the non-piston related updates going to make it to the T-Duke as well?

 

Cheers

Hii TJ,

 

Eventually yes. But we want to see how the Piston version upgrade goes first. It took a lot of work and a long time to do!

OMG!  This is awesome news.  Piston Duke brought up to Legacy standards? I am a RealAir customer for life! This will be the best piston twin for FSX without a doubt.

 

edit:  Will this be a free update to current Duke owners?

This is absolutely fantastic.  I so love it when developers revisit a plane that was already excellent and bring it up to the current standards.  I can't wait.

 

Just one request, and it's probably too late, but:

 

Do you think you could provide an option to integrate the Reality XP Weather Radar?  Only one plane natively supports that, the PMDG J-41, but I've always wanted to stick it in the Dukes.
