Anybody Else Planning to Get the Upcoming CLS DC-10 HD?

Recommended Posts

IMO They're very far behind the competition (e.g. Captainsim, Enigmasim/Qualitywings, Milviz, Coolsky etc.) in terms of VC graphics fidelity. This is quite odd as their MD-80 was pretty good graphics wise. It's almost as if they didn't care as their 747 v1.5 wasn't very good either.

 

Please compare the CLS DC-10 screenshots to this - currently Captainsim is the best in the business in terms of VC graphics with 3D gauges and texturing, and the 707 was released 3+ years ago.

Oh yeah, I see what you mean.  Everytime I see the CS 727 VC, I feel like buying the add on.  That will have to wait because I'm very tight on $ right now.

 

Yeah, the MD-80's VC is great.  I noticed the new DC-10 and 747 gauges have a very sleek and clean look to them as well, but I think it's still much better than the original DC-10.  That one has one of the worst looking VC.  I'm so happy to see a fresh one coming.

 

I guess it's a huge jump for me because I normally fly FS9 99% of the time.  Just this past week, I've slowly been getting back into FSX in DX10 and I'm really enjoying it.  I'm going to keep this install as clean and close to default as possible.  I'll only be adding airplanes and ai.  FSX just runs so good on my PC when I don't mess with it by adding all kinds of add ons.

I'm not really a fan of CLS. The last few addons I have seen lacked the realism I want to have.

I don't think the DC-10 is going to be very realistic. Or will it be?
Can someone confirm?

CLS make "lite" models.  They're just a little more complex than default airliners.  Even though their planes are light, they handle very well and you get a sense of the weight of large aircrafts.  The handling is something CLS is known for if you check out online reviews.

I have downloaded from another flight sim site some newer livery textures from Aviationlovers that have some higher texture realism features for CLS DC-10. Enjoy this particular aircraft but as others pointed out the VC is lacking.

Looks like we have to wait a little longer.  The latest post from their support forum on V2...

Aprox. ETA??? icon_smile.gif

 

Not really, hopefully soon. Currently the model and everything is done just adding the -40/-50 variants, hopefully a month or 2.

 

Interesting they're adding the 50.  I thought it was never made?  Supposed to have been a DC-10 with RR engines.

 

It would be great in the future if they would offer us the two-engine DC-10, the DC-10 Twin.

Well that sucks Thought it would be out by this month I think they showed the previews to early. at first it seems it was very close to release the way they were previewing everything.

That's what I thought too.  They said they were on the final stages of testing last month.  I'm guessing the 40 and 50 were last minute decisions that pushed the release date.  I can't wait to fly this thing in DX10 with bloom and VC shadow.

We're getting close, guys.  Looks like the delay is well worth it considering all the extra features being added to the plane.  From their FB page...

 

Commercial Level Simulations

Small update on the DC10v2;
It will hopefully be released soon (but not within the next couple of weeks of course), we are just finishing the freighter models (10F / 30F / 40F). The reason for the delays was that subtle variations in the versions keep getting added and Missi (Modeler/VC) is adding more and more great little 'extras' in each model to make them as real as possible. Things such as the many different engine types, different gear configs, different fuel tanks etc.

After the models, VC and Paints are complete then a quick final round of testing then it should be ready to be published smile emoticon

Thanks for waiting guys but I can promise you it is worth it!

Guys, check out their Facebook page.  They posted 2 teaser videos.  The model and VC looks awesome!  I still like the sound pack from TSS better so I'll be using that with the plane.

CLS also said it's very fps friendly and that they get double the FPS on the DC-10 compared to NGX.

I hope it will be ready soon.
