This is what I've received from the .ORG:

 

 

Dear customer,

An update to the Carenado Seneca II that you purchased has been released. The new version is fully64bit compatible.

Looks and feels AMAZING!!!!  Now the Baron 58 ;-)

 

 

May 2013

 

v2.0 list of changes:

 

 

-32-bit and 64-bit Mac, Windows, and Linux support. 

-Updated SASL to official v2.0.1 release, which contains optimizations that benefit from Laminar's X-Plane 10.22 release.

 

-Fully re-programmed stereo 3D sound, with new dynamic effects and more efficient, cleaner sound.

-Interior lighting optimized for X-Plane v9 and v10.

-Overhauled lighting system.  Lighting halos for nav and strobe lights are now more visible under certain viewing angles.

-Landing light features tightly-focused "glare" effect when viewed from the right angle.

-Nav lights have been improved for a more realistic appearance.

-Improved ground handling

 

-No longer has inverted fuel and oil systems. More realistic.

-Optimized "options" menu, to use less memory.

-Optimized "Cameras" menu to use less memory

-Tweaked volume knob for engine sounds ("Sq" knob on Com radio)

-Tweaked turning radius on ground to compensate for new v10 no-toe-brake-with-rudder setting.

-Adjusted elevator trim characteristics

-Adjusted trim time from centre to max for v10, as this setting, left un-addressed, will cause the same plane to take twice as long to trim.

-Added wheel chocks and pitot cover for when engine is off and plane is on the ground. (Option available via "O" menu, and is only available under the mentioned conditions)

-tweaked gauges, such as fuel and oil pressure, vacuum, etc. to conform to v10's new way of calculating "Nominal pressure/temperature" as opposed to "Max pressure/temperature".

-Programmed default camera snap points for v10 (on top of existing ones via "Cameras" pop-up menu)

-Provided 4k HD paint kit (in Liveries folder) (Suitable for v10 only).

 

2 Different .acf files: one for v9 and one for v10.

-v10 .acf features optimized objects.  Interior/exterior shading is applied only where needed, saving resources.

-v10 .acf has further optimizations to objects that don't need the background (clouds, skies) to be drawn through them, if they're not transparent, saving further resources.

-v10 .acf also protects certain textures from resolution degradation at low rendering settings.  This guarantees that the panel instruments and text are always crisp and clear, no matter what rendering settings are chosen for the sim.

-v10 .acf is optimized to make use of HDR rendering, especially in terms of lighting.  This includes spill lights, which illuminate the surroundings, coming from Nav and Strobe lights. 

-When HDR mode is turned off, care has been taken to optimize the appearance of the plane without the enhancement benefits of HDR.

Although I purchased it from Carenado I knew about this update through an email sent by the org. Didn't receive any email from Carenado. Anyway it's a great update!

I am looking for a good twin for XPX.  Is this one of them?  Are all the gauges 3D?  I can't tell from the screenshots.  How does it compare to the Carenado B-58?

 

Thanks in advance.

This is in fact a good looking twin. Go for it, perhaps the Baron may have better textures. It has 3d gauges as well and a very nice interior.

Well, if we look at the two planes before the Update: The Baron had better textures, more animations, it was stronger and more nimble than the Seneca II. But the v2 has slightly improved textures, takes less resources and behaves much more nimble.

I presume the B-58 will probably get better textures and animations and it will maintain its stronger engines and higher speed, that also demand a more active ro0ll ifg you want to land the plane.So I would say the Seneca II is a very good dmall two engine aircraft but the B-58 will probably be better.

I think any Carenado plane is a good bet.

As far as twin's go, the Baron 58 is great, the 337 even better .. and the C340 is fantastic! :D

The Seneca is no mean slouch either. I have them all.

I have flown some single engine ac years ago in real life. I never made it to my private license though. I learned to look out the window to line up for landings. In this beast, that ain't gonna happen. You look out the window and you get a face full of engine! In the real world, how the heck do you accomplish that in a twin engine ac? In the sim, I use the outside view. Just wondering and really like flying this plane.
