[14JUL21] New Update for the PMDG DC-6 for MSFS

Recommended Posts

Captains,

A few moments ago, we issued a new update for the PMDG DC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This update, like the previous updates, is available to you via the PMDG Operations Center.

This update is focused on some improvements to performance and enhancements in usability based upon feedback from users now that the product is in such wide operation.


The Highlights:
- Automated Flight Engineer's audio now has his own volume channel tied to the Aircraft Miscellaneous slider
- A/C inverter logic and certain A/C powered instruments reworked/remodeled/corrected
- Improved hardware support
- Fit-and-finish items around the virtual cockpit
- Visual tidying of the cabin and exterior models


Change Log Items for this build:

Oh wow. Thank you for fixing this!!! It has been driving me bonkers trying to figure out how to force it to un-map F1 and F4.
