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

Recommended Posts

 

 


Here it is, Rob. Weather Radar just turned on...the bird looks great! V2.0

 

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.

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:

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should retrieve a new serial entering to their accounts at www.carenado.com - "My Products" section (old serials are no longer valid).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.

I hope this means they're doing more 2.0 versions of past airplanes.

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

Thanks, Ed

Look at the screenies....it is a stand alone at the bottom of the panel in the middle quadrant.

No weather in the G1000 ... perhaps in the older EX v1 that I'm guessing doesn't have the G1000 based on those screenshots?

 

Anyway, Mitches pictures are nothing like the EX V2.0 I just purchased.  The EX v2.0 is G1000 exclusive, no other variants (all G1000) in what I just purchased and no weather radar.

 

Unfortunately the G1000s seem to have a rather high FPS hit for me.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Something should be wrong with my EX v2.0, because the panel on your screenies is quite different to the panel I have, with just G1000s. Carenado stuff!

Exactly what I have. My installer said it was EX v2.0, but only getting G1000's on the main panel.

Ed

And no weather radar at all, except one INOP in one of the screens of the G1000.

Cheers, not very happy. Ed

I have noticed that all the aircraft that are getting 2.0 versions are ones with G1000 cockpits. I think it is mostly to add the weather radar into them and fix small bugs related to the G1000.

They need to update A LOT of them to add the GTN650/750 for P3D.
