Captain Sim for P3D ...

Recommended Posts

How are the Captain Sim 757, 767, L-1011 offers for P3D v5 in you opinion ?

I was browsing their Products page and they do look nice and show some interesting features being modelled, but I would like to hear from users with hands-on experience...

Ah!  also, do you have a positive experience using any of these with P3d v6 ?

Thx!

I have the 737-200 and 737-300 for P3Dv5! I would say that they are okay, not the best of the best (think pmdg, etc) but still enjoyable! I will probably buy the 767 and 757 at some point in the near future (hopefully on sale)! 😊

Also to expand on the above, I did have the 767 for fsx but that one wasnt the best (I experienced some strange handling issues)!

767 is their best creation, but i would love to see L1011 done with better systems modelling, and fixed years old issues...

Sadly it looks like L1011 will not receive update anymore

I have the 757 and 767 from them - both are usable to good, the 767 slightly better than the 757.
For "normal" flying, everything is really there. If the prices were lower (50 €/$) I would say they are really worth the money.

The only real problem is the performance.
Especially with terrain on ND, weather radar on, the fps go pretty down.

Not their biggest fan, but their 767 is the best product they've made, IMO.

I have tried to install on a new machine (with all AV off), the 757 and 767 many, many times in P3d v5.4 and every time the aircraft install ok but the aces system does not work, so I've given up. Shame really cos they are not all that bad. Don't want to hijack the thread but does anyone have any suggestions?

I have the 767 but don't have it installed at present since the PMDG, Leonardo, and FSLabs gets my study level time. IMHO the 767 is mediocre. Perhaps I'm just spoiled by the aforementioned developers. Maybe I'll reinstall and take another look. I sure wish Level D had stayed in the game. Their 767 was boss.

I know and have the best memories of the LevelD / Wilco PIC 767...

I just installed the CS767 in V6 by pointing the installer to P3DV6 folder. It does seem to work OK but my what an FPS and VRAM hog. I might reinstall into version 5 and take another look. Probably have to turn sliders down in any case. I do remember a few successful flights so there may be promise here.

Installed the 767 in P3DV5 and looks and performs pretty good. I think I'll have to spend a little time on the old girl.

Thank you for the feedback! Strange that it appears to perform not só good on V6 but on v5 runs ok?

I remember in the icons panel there was an icon that looked like a sun, something about 3D lighting. As soon as I turned it off, my FPS improved. That in both v4 and v5. I don't have v6 to check, but that may help.

Haven't yet decided if I'll buy the 767... but I'm tempted. Question is: should I also buy v5.4 ?

If I were you, I'd probably wait a little longer - there's usually a big sale between December and March. If the 767 then e.g. only $ 20 costs, I would grab it!
