New 310R from Milviz

Recommended Posts

All the above aside I am looking forward to the new C310. I put 1500hrs in the R model on fire suppression with the 285hp engines and it is a very nice 310 to fly. Maneuverability is very very good....great for formation with a tanker. Reliable as hell. I'm hoping everything works well on the new one such as mixtures/fuel flow, electrical indications, autopilot etc.  Dave

I'm not entirely sure what you're actually concerned about Bert, but if you mean a "sculpted look" then yes, the side 'gripping' contours are present. They are just difficult to see in the sim:

For those wondering what this part of the discussion is all about here is a photo from an actual Cirrus installation of GTN's that shows the sculpting.  Now I understand the portion of the panel you see holding the GTN's is also contoured, but visualize the GTN's as if they were instead in a flat panel. Note that the outer bezel edges of the gauges themselves are raised from the panel as well as the faces of the bezels are also contoured on both the right and the left.

When taxiing or when in the air it is not always easy to select what you wish.  That due to bumps, whether it is bumpy air or bumps on the taxiways.  Same as in your car on a bumpy road.  The sculpting shown here is designed so that you can stabilize your hand when making selections.  Ex. resting your palm against the base of the GTN while using your fingers to select; or hooking your thumb on the side of the bezel on one side, or your little finger on the other side, again while making selections.  Not something you can do on a flat screen.

The 310 redux screenshots show very well sculpted gauges across most of the panel (visit Milviz to see the screenshots).   The GTN 650 there appears to show the sculpted bezel face, while the face of the GTN 750 bezel shown there appears flat.  I guess one question then is if it is indeed not sculpted (750), and a second question of mine is whether the model's GPS bezels can be kept in place for use with aftermarket GPS.s.  Are those indeed the questions?

Or, we could charge you extra for that.  

That's an EXCELLENT idea.  You want those items in, you pay for it.

 

 

Perhalps the answer is an upgraded or pro series. The work that you guys do is well above the normal Devs. If Flight 1 etc. are taking advantage of you then I think folks would be happy to pay a little extra for this level of design and support. PDMG charges through the nose for their tubeliners. Again, your arguement makes good sense but it is you customers who get hurt and are sort of caught between a rock and a hard place. 

Edit...Personally I would much rather spend my money with you.

BTW,
This morning I DL'd and read through the 310REDUX UserGuide.  Thumbs UP! 

Wish I had one like this for all my other models....

The Redux is really nice.  New sounds, new AMS, Trueglass, Realight, Rex/MV WXR, F1/RXP/Mindstar/Navstax compatibility... new textures, new models... Nice.  Really.

If it goes over well, we will do the B-55 as well.

A B-55 Redux would be excellent.

I second that! A B-55 Redux would be great as well. Hope it become a reality.

Can't imagine why it wouldn't.  I agree with Frank that the manual is a model for how to do good, complete documentation.  Particularly appreciated are the images detailing switch/control location and function.

As for the plane - sounds like you basically stayed with the existing FDE, which has always been excellent, and brought everything else up to 2018 standards.  Very much looking forward to the release.

Bernt Stolle did the FDE.  Sticking with perfection is obvious.  Sounds were redone fully.

Will the Redux be fully functional in Ver 4.1 or is 4.2 required.

Any idea when she's going to be ready for the masses again? I've got a bit of open floor waiting for her. :)

I must have gotten lucky and downloaded my copy before they were pulled. Still enjoying it, much better than the original in terms of graphics (new cockpit glass is my favorite visual change next to the upgraded cockpit textures).

I think I may know what the bug they reference is, but I'll keep it a secret since Milviz decided it was important enough to pull the download.

Keep up the good work Milviz, looking forward to the 350 and F-15 when they finally release.

If you develop it, they will come. :biggrin:
