Carenado Grand Caravan C208 V.2 had been released....

Recommended Posts

You need to go into your Carenado account, and download again, your Grand Caravan.  Also, you need to capture your new install serial number (the old one won't work), and away you go...

 

 

Post Edit:  You need to first DELETE your Grand Caravan v1.0 BEFORE you install v2.0  Do not overwrite your present installation.

 

 

Weather screens, and other updated goodies await you...

 

For both FSX and P3D

 

I have it now installed in my FSX and both my P3D v2 and v3.

 

Cheers,

Carenado site seems to be down and/or very slow ... unable to download it from my product page.

 

Guess they are experiencing heavy traffic loads.

 

Cheer, Rob.

I give up trying to get this update, anyone know how?

 

Click on the link in the email Carenado sent out and I get nothing, download never starts.

 

So I tried to downloaded from the My Account at carenado and all I get is the older 2012 version?

 

Would love to try this aircraft out in P3D, one of my classics.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Downloaded it from MyAccount at Carenado one hour ago, and downloaded Ok, v2.0. Installed it ok, but seems to me that the aircraft has a bug in the engine torque that keeps going up and down without control, not responding to any input on the throttle. Need to check better tomorrow, with more time.

Cheers, Ed

Thanks gents, I'll open a support ticket.

 

In the middle of a flight in the Q400 Pro edition from KIAH to KSFO with everything and the kitchen sink (ASN, Orbx, FSDT/FB, GS, MT6, etc.) loaded at extreme graphics settings v3.3.5 ... started at 3.1GB VAS, upto to 3.4GB, down to 3.2GB VAS now .... lets see what happens when I hit NorCal Orbx region and FB KSFO HD.

 

Oh yeah, all 4096 textures too ... V3.3.5 is crazy good with VAS.

 

Hopefully I have enough fuel.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Rob...was just thinking...in your account, find the G C 208B...and it won't say v.2.

 

Download that link...and also capture the serial number on the right of that link. THAT is actually v2.0

 

Uninstall what you have...run this installer...and you will then have v2.0.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Rob, if you don't mind me asking, did you do an upgrade to your 3.2 or did you download the full installer for 3.3.5?

 

Cheers!

I think mine was too, but honestly, can't truly bring to mind, Rim....but I downloaded it...and it had the new version with the running weather radar. They might have not changed the name of the file?!?!?

 

Dunno...but the pictures above are what was downloaded... :hi:

I thought it was the EX that got the 2.0 treatment.  G1000 version, yes?

Wasn't it the EX version that was updated to the v2? The older model hasn't been updated as far as I know. They just updated the EX version with the G1000.

Yes, Carenado's update email to me stated that it was just the 208 EX (G1000) that was updated to v2.   I doubt they'll update the original C208 as above, as it's an early 2010 model and I don't think they're doing the V2 updates that far back.

Hi Sesquashtoo,

 

did Carenado add a new Cabin to this version? I always loved this plane, but I don't own this model because, IMHO, the executive class cabin displayed on the Carenado web page just looks odd for such a rugged plane. Your screen shot looks different to me.

Hi Peter...well, I can't honestly answer your question. I hadn't flown this plane in awhile.  This is the latest download from my account..with the weather radar.  If this cabin is refreshed, then I'll go with your viewing of it.  It looks great...with high detail.  The plane looks great, sounds great from the turbo-prop...and the weather radar actually works! :))))

 

We'll go that you think they upgraded the cabin interior. I'm good with that.

The EX model it is then. I only purchased the original Caravan and that download is the original executable from back then. My installation key is also the same...

I think you folks are correct, it is the EX version of which I do NOT have.  My apologies! 

 

I have "C208B Grand Caravan HD Series FSX/P3D" missing that "EX" ... but the email I got from Carenado was clearly indicating I should have an update:

 

 

 

UPDATED TO VERSION 2.0
CARENADO C208B GRAND CARAVAN EX HD SERIES FSX/P3D
 
IMPORTANT:
-Customers should retrieve a new serial entering to their accounts at www.carenado.com - "My Products" section (old serials are no longer valid).
 
New Version (2.0)
- P3Dv3 and Steam compatible
- Weather radar added
- XPDR different modes added
- 2D detachable autopilot
- G1000 improvements
- 3D knob technology improved.
- Exterior lighting effects improved

- New sounds
- Minor bugs fixed
 
Customers should uninstall the aircraft before installing this new version and then download the package again from the link provided. Downloads were increased.
 
CLICK HERE
for the product page.

 

I think perhaps I should have NOT received this email and was just an error on Carenado's automated emailer process.

 

Off to go buy the "EX".

 

Cheers, Rob.

Could you please confirm if the weather radar is inside the G1000, for me that one seems not to be working.

Thanks, Ed
