What Would be Your Next Old School Aircraft for P3Dv2?

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious what other members choices would be for the next Old School Aircraft in P3Dv2.++?  I'm thinking pre-1980, but use your own discretion, no strict guidelines here.

I can tell you that my current choice is already in production, PMDG's DC-6.

The DC-6 is very closely followed by the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.  At the time of it's first flight in 1954, an amazing aircraft.  2015, an amazing aircraft.  I sure I'm not alone in stating that a HIGH quality C-130 would be a dream for many of us.

 

And the rest of you would like to see??? Have fun at it.

 

 

FYI, I was born in 1955, just a little insight into my perspective.

I would actually LOVE to see the A2A Stratocruiser available on P3D, it is a work of art.

Mine works fine in P3D - installed using the Estonian Migration Tool with no problems.

 

Me, I'm waiting for Jan Visser to finish his vintage VC for Manfred Jahn's C-47 - that'll make it a complete experience.  Also waiting for Manfred's upcoming C-97, speaking of Stratocruisers...

 

If A2A comes through with their rumored Accu-sim AT-6, that'll work for me too.

Cheers, Rob

 

EDIT: 727 also

a HIGH quality C-130

 

Captain Sim's version not good enough for you?

 

If GA ... the Victa Airtourer published by ORBX is a real gem.

Now that we have "real" waves:  A decent B314 would be my dream...

Captain Sim's version is a nice plane, but could use a little updating.  A dedicated P3Dv2 version/installer would be nice too.  I had it loaded into my previous install of P3Dv2, but I don't have it in my current re-install of P3Dv2.  I can't remember what they were, but there were a couple of glitches in P3Dv2.  BTW, I used the EMT for the previous install.

 

Another plane I would add to my list would be MAAM sim's B-25J Briefing Time.  I lot of fun to fly.

I'd like to see the following, preferably made by A2A Simulations:

 

Lockheed P-3 Orion, Lockheed C-130 Hercules, Beech 18, Lockheed Electra (the original), DC-4 (but DC-6 from PMDG will do if it isn't a VAS crusher), Boeing 727, DC-3/C-47 and maybe an Aero Commander.

I would never buy anything from Captain Sim. Worst customer support in history. I had massive struggles to get my FS9 C-130 to install a few years ago, and support was abysmal.

I'd kill for an Accu-simmed Connie in a shiny TWA livery, but sometimes we all can't get want we want...

 

please A2A??

Hadn't thought about that, good choice!

I am SO with you there!!!! I managed to get Mike Stone's B314 with a tweaked Ken Mitchell panel running under FSX but

getting it running under P3D just isn't going to happen! -(

 

PLEASE....developers....a B314 and basic flying boat bases worldwide package I will pay good cash for!!! :-)

 

As to the "other" old school aircraft....yes please A2A....the B377 for P3D.

 

Really any old smokin', oil drippin' radial heavies will get me to open my wallet.

Somone Sugested a Beech 18 - How about a Volpar Turbo Beech - a Work Horse in Vietnam - and South East Asia - With " Air Ameria " - A Really Great AirPlane  :BigGrin::dirol:

Would be nice if Flight Sim Labs made a ConcordeX installer for P3D.  I don't think that is available yet.

  I would splurge for a true dx11 Boeing-Stearman 75.

The Boeing 314 would be very cool.  Imagine tracing the Pan Am route from San Fran to Hawaii! There are so many that I would like to see; kid in a candy store.........

Agree Mark, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Oh, Concorde X ... yes, another vote.

 

On a related topic, I wonder if anyone has actually designed (from scratch) an aircraft using P3D SDK FIRST, rather than doing it for FSX then making it work for P3D?

 

I would love to see a true native P3D exclusive aircraft that isn't compromised by what works in FSX.  Pretty sure no one has done one yet ... all seem to start with FSX.  I understand why, market share, but I keep hoping someone will take the risk and do a P3D exclusive just to really show off what the platform can do.  There are definitely difference in textures and modeling for P3D that are NOT the same as FSX ... even more so if one takes into account HDR.

 

At this point it's just a dream, but maybe some day a 3rd party dev team will take the plunge.

 

Cheers, Rob.

On the military side of things...

 

I'd like a try a high quality U-2 or SR-71.  For something really different, an X-15 would be interesting... good for short flights and landing practice. (for modern stuff, I'd still like a good C-17 Globemaster or C-130 Hercules... but that's for another thread).

Agree, and I'd imagine that will happen in the next couple of years as the pendulum of users continues to swing to P3D.

Buddy and I flew the PanAm flying boat Pacific routes in FSX.  San Fran-Honolulu-Midway-Wake-Guam-Manila-Hong Kong.

Also Honolulu-Kingman Reef(also Canton Is)-Pago Pago-Auckland.  The navigation was "interesting". :-)
