Milviz Beaver & Otter in P3Dv5

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Has someone here been able to make either(or both) the Milviz Beaver and/or the Otter work in P3Dv5?

Thanks

Waiting on the Otter conversion myself. Seems Milviz has other fish to fry.

They said on June 29th they would have the less complex simulations done in a couple of weeks. They must be all complex because they only have one done after a month and a half.  On the Milviz FB page, every time they make a announcement for a plane for MSFS (2020) someone brings up the P3D5 planes and they say they are coming.

Specs: black box thingy with spinning fans, lights and a bunch of wires that go to screens with pretty colours and a keyboard with many keys. The black box thingy also has a push button activated coffee cup holder.

It seems they've let down their old clients. I was going to buy the Porter and the Turbo Otter but have held back,  with this kind of support

Out of curiosity I installed the Milviz C310R into V5. Everything appears to work, e.g., gauges and autopilot etc.  The only apparent problem is RealLight and TrueGlass. Since these are both implementations of software by TFDi, it's unclear why they haven't been updated (Aerosoft did it relatively quickly for the Airbus A330). The textures presumably won't change, so is it only the shaders (e.g., RealLight.hlsl), that need modified?  There might be something more fundamental missing (but not obvious to me), but now really wondering what is happening with Milviz and product support.

They did the B350i for V5 and it works quite well with RealLight and TrueGlass (resource hungry though) but I really miss the C310R and Porter in V5 as I like bush flying and smaller airports. Seems like most of the developers are trying to get a foot in the door with MSFS and not bothering with their existing V5 clients.

I think you're  right

Well, this is a bit disappointing. I usually get an email notifying me of updates for the B350i, long since being a Beta member. Got nuthin' this time...

Maybe Colin and Company are indeed focused on the shiny new toy.
