Wanted: Embraer 145 for Prepar3dv4

11 posts in this topic

Really love the Embraer 145 regional jet since I'm often a passenger on one in real life. Are there any of these jets available for Prepar3dv4? 

Thanks.

As far as I know no up-to-date Embraer regional jet is available for P3D, perhaps some old port overs... I would like to have one myself!

The only option at this point is the feelthere EMB-135/145 package. It's alright... a lot of people like it but personally I could never get into it because a) The very bad frame rates b) the poor sounds c) the somewhat buggy systems and animations. Also, I don't think it's available for v4 yet. IIRC someone else was developing a -145. I saw a few external renders some time ago but never heard anything else about it. Maybe someone else can point you to it because I can't recall the name of the developer. 

It looks like your only comparable option for the foreseeable future is the Aerosoft CRJ-700/900.

It's actually pretty disappointing that there are no up to date Embraer's for P3D, I'd love to have a 170/190. X-Plane has the SSG which has annoying bugs and the X-Crafts which has the worst FMC i've ever used. I'd kill for a quality Embraer.

I use the Virtualcol 170/175 and 190/195 in v4 and I love them! Relatively simple and frame rate friendly!

And you can't beat the price...$11.50 normally, but they are on sale right now for $8.05! Hard to beat that!!

How do they fly?  Neither the visuals nor the systems do not meet the standards of this time, but - you are right - the price is not too high!

I really like the feel. I agree the visuals aren't cutting edge, but it's good enough for me. As for systems, I'm not the study sim type, really. I feel that the simplicity of these aircraft make up for my lack of training as an airline pilot. I don't have to waste time figuring out things that a real airline pilot would know intimately...

I'm not into the overly complex aircraft either.  But, the Virtualcol virtual panels always look so "FS9" to me. It's always a bad sign when the pictures show more of the liveries and less of the cockpit.  Yet, I don't fly from the outside of the plane!  There is a 35% off sale going on - can anyone recommend a few of their planes with the best quality?

Their new CRJ's are really nice, IMHO. A little more expensive, though... $24.90, but currently on sale for $19.92 at the Virtualcol Store:

Also, the E Jets are still on sale for $8.05. For that price, you HAVE to at least try them!
