Looks pretty. Would be nice to get a look at the VC in daylight though. 

In my opinion, it looks great. Some screenshots from Prepar3D 4.4:

Joe, Flysimware's tech / pilot will be making a walk around vid soon that will include a start up procedure and a few systems as well.

Hi Mark,

If making more videos - you should seriously consider ChasePlane - their automated exterior camera comes up with some fantastic dramatic panning shots - with little or no work...

Scott

Went to watch some of their tutorial vids and one used our L35A for the cinematic views. Wow $37 is more than i thought it would cost. Not sure i see any view advantages yet. Like zoom or set pan controls.

Hi Mark,

RE: ChasePlane

For actually flying in a sim - it's truly indispensable... I don't know how we ever got along without it... I think you'll find just about everyone who's tried it - shares this opinion... Even with TrackIR - I can't fly without ChasePlane... It has one of the most intuitive interfaces I've ever seen on any software product and I've been an IT guy in downtown Manhattan for over 25 years...

Some of my favorite aspects - is you can assign views to joystick buttons - more than one to the same button - which cycles on each subsequent press... I setup all my VC's in similar fashion - on a single 4-way - LEFT is all the Pilot views working from the top down - UP is upper center panels - DOWN is lower center panels - RIGHT is anything I need on the copilot side...

I can instantly and without thought - get close up fixed zooms to any gauge such as GPS or FMC for easy manipulation...

You can mix views - with and without TrackIR - to make mouse click button presses easier....

You can still move the camera around with HAT assignments from any fixed view...

The many motion effects add a great deal to the immersion...

Please don't feel obligated - just my opinion - for me it's an absolute must have...

Regards,
Scott

Hi Paul,

LOL - I remember when I first started using TrackIR I would get headaches - it actually sat on my shelf gathering dust for years before I gave it an earnest try...With VC's you need it though - makes flying a pattern - feel like you're flying a pattern...

I hear all the new VR gear can induce nausea - it will be a long time before I jump in that pool...

Regards,
Scott

Agreed chase plane is an integral part of my sim now and worth much more than 37 bucks! I have my Lear views nailed down to a tee. My fave two being rear left and right passenger views looking out in front of engines. When selected with hardware buttons from the flight deck the transition smoothly pans into place looking exactly like a first person view would walking back from the cockpit and taking their seat. When switching from left rear to right rear again looks like the passenger is switching seats. I'm like a big kid with my favorite toy HERE. Also from a tech background like Scott I spent years with custom. Flt files to make my own views in all aircraft and I am so glad that is all over. I have an Xbox controller near my mouse which at any time I can pick up and walk or pan around perfectly from any view. It is definitely a video makers dream come true as soon as you have it configured.

Nice, can't wait till somebody re-texturizes the Vc.That's the only thing that keeps me away from this ac.

Working on a big update for the Falcon 50. VC textures getting improved with shading because the AO effects alone did not do what i thought it would. So i am manually creating more shadows and shading. Here is a sample of the improved overhead circuit panel with new aging surface and a protective edging.

Hi, Mark!

Please check with P3D4 how the autopilot will work if we only use Flight director before switching autopilot on. After switching on the autopilot, whether the modes will be displayed on the autopilot buttons.

Another problem - the reaction to the Yoke deflection seems very sensitive,as on a fighter plane. Here, perhaps there is a fsuipc fault where all my joystick axis assignments are made as Direct mode.

P.S. And please forgive my English. I know that he's terrible... 🙂

Hi Mark,

Yeah - that’s been my experience as well - Ambient Occlusion - is intended for the subtle lighting effects - you still need to bake in shadows - especially since the VC lighting is so poorly rendered in P3D... 

Thanks...

Scott
