Feedback Lear 35A Effects Package

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Just wondering if anyone uses that effects package addon for the Lear ? I watched the video and it seemed like a negligable improvement - really don't need disco lights in the back - so is this package still worthy of the $20 + they are asking ?

 

The one thing I noted is that the landing light on the Lear doesn't seem to illuminate the runway on approach - only after you set her down - which seems to be missing the point of a Landing Light - would this package improve that aspect ?

 

As always - thanks so much for your time and insights...

 

Regards,

Scott

I don't fly the Lear a lot now but have to say reluctantly that when I bought the effects package I didn't actually notice any major difference.

 

Others may disagree and if you plan on flying the Lear a lot you may benefit.

The package is certainly not as 'big' compared to the airliner packages.

Personally I like it, the main argument for me were the realistic landing/ recog lights; no volumetric lighting in daylight or clear weather, but very very nice effects in fog and rain.

Contrails.. well, I don't see much improvement there. Some other minor effects like cold start, touchdown smoke, tiretracks during rain, engine blast during wet conditions, brakes effect during gear retraction.

If it's worth it- for me it is, for the landing light effects alone; it feels quite immersive when you see this rain effect cast in front of the recogs during approach. Depends on how you value such things. It's a great  addition, but after all, only eyecandy.

Hi Folks,

 

Thanks for the additional feedback - I may just bite the bullet since I am enjoying this plane...
