Simcheck A300 P3D v3.4

Recommended Posts

Still getting money's worth out of this one.  Most of these screens were captured over eastern France on the way to Dusseldorf.

Nice shots!  Sadly, one plane I never picked up (though I should have).

I almost forgot I had it...installed it a few days ago and have been flying it for the past few days. It's a great plane with the fmc upgrade, works fine in p3d too (I did use the migration tool to install).

Nice pics. Yup, it's a great aeroplane, people think the FSL A320 is the only really cool Airbus with great system modeling, but the Simcheck A300 is like that too.

Will it install without the EMT as well?

It caused me some problems, so I don't use it anymore.

But the Simcheck A300 is a plane I truly miss in P3D.

Wow, great shots there!

I had actually forgotten about this plane from simcheck.

Not b/c I think it's a bad product, but it was released at first without the EFIS/FMS retrofit....and I kind of totally missed it when that update was released,

 

I used to fly the SSW A310 extensively in FS9, and I assume the A300 is quite familiar in the cockpit.  Hmm, maybe this is my next purchase instead of the FSL A320 :P

Bryan are you using ENVTEX? Could you please share your setting with us?

Lovely shots, a really nice bird.

Wondering the same! Never bought him because of the p3d compatibility. What's the trick to install it in p3d?

Alan,

 

Thanks.

 

I know we've never talked before, but I just want to say that I have enjoyed reading your posts over the years, always entertaining and in-depth.  I haven't seen you posting on AVSIM in a while, it's good to see you back.

Michael,

 

I've never tried installing it without EMT.  I understand that you don't want to use it.  I know folks have mentioned other installations methods such as setting up an fsx directory, installing addons to the fsx directory, then migrating all of the files/folders over to P3D, but I have never tried it.  

 

The EMT issues I have had were with some MILVIZ aircraft.  The only other issue I've had with non-native P3D addons is with the CS 767 which always corrupts my default startup scenario. 

Bryan are you using ENVTEX? Could you please share your setting with us?

Mohamed,

 

Yes I am using ENVTEX, AS16 and ASCA.  I think ENVTEX has totally transformed the skies.  I'm also using PTA and the PTA P3D shaders profiles that you can download on the ENTEX site.  HDR is enabled in P3D.  

 

I'll try to post all of my settings as soon as I can, hopefully this evening.

Lovely shots, a really nice bird.

I used EMT to install the A300 and the FMC addon.

Thanks a lot for the answer. I might give it a try (manual install) as the EMT messed up pretty much in my sims and OS...

That is odd that EMT messed up your install and OS, I hate to hear that, makes me cringe when I think of having to re-install everything.  It feels like a six month process to get all my addons re-installed.

Here you go...make sure you click on the image to expand it to a viewable size.  I'm also using Maxime's settings (ENVTEX .ini download) for PTA.

I flew the A300-600R back when American had them. If I am not mistaken it was the first plane I ever flew in back in the 90's during its golden years. I really enjoyed seeing this plane. Really there was nothing like this plane and I can see nothing like it today anymore. A true iconic bird that does not get enough credit.

Very nice screenshots.  I'm going to have to get mine out now, and install it in P3D after seeing those.

I wonder why Simcheck never made anything else?

No problem, Let me know If you have all the settings you need. Good weekend to you as well.

It used to be heavy on the frames on my old system so I never really flew it much at all in FSX. With a much newer rig and P3D it's as fun to fly as any big jet. I've been busy updating all of my European airports with a lot of the new releases lately and this jet has performed well at the big ones I've tested so far.

 

I think the FMC upgrade is a great addition too.

Big difference between this one and the heavies of today. I really like the look of the plane and I still see them from time to time in the form of Fedex or UPS at the local airfield. Hate to lose it when the next form of P3D is released, assuming it won't be compatible with the next version.

I too have installed the A300 in P3D v3.4 and have one minor issue that the fin does not display in the scenario screen if you select an aircraft livery. Do you have this issue or did you find a way to display the full aircraft in the scenario screen?

Great plane and shots really!

But I don't know this plane has FMC but only old civas system. Is it a separate update or included in the main aircraft?

Yes, the FMC was a separate addon.  Still available on Simmarket.
