Beech 1900D

Recommended Posts

Hi,Attached you will see a few screen shots of Jarno's Beech 1900D. During the last week we have worked on improving the cockpit views for this plane a bit. While the cockpit essentially still is a KingAir 200 cockpit, the views now are drastically different. Most important, the engines have been removed from the views, just like in reality. This allows for a great view of the environment. Also Bosco Leal's GPS addition has been incorporated, as well as A. Spellbinder's center post. The latter with some modifications: 1) some perspective was put in the picture (tapering of the post); 2) wind shield whipers were added.I took the liberty of adding/changing the rear views by using some of Marcello Lugari's excellent cockpit views from his outstanding B1900D cockpit for FS2k2. Currently I am awaiting his permission to use these bitmaps.At present only the cockpit views for 1024x768 resolution have been modified. I would appreciate some feedback on what other resolution to tackle. I would think 800x600. Thanks.Best regards,Henri

Just took this plane to Bordeaux (LFBD). Big thanks to Doc Parano, for another wonderful scenery from ROTW. Cheers,HenriP.S. Before everybody starts to wonder, the second picture is only a section of the screen shot. In this way I did have to shrink it so much.

Hello Henri,You're an expert in taking screenshots. Please forward them to the screenshot forum in order to promote Fly!2.Although I'm Dutch, I have never heard from Transtravel. Can you tell me something more about them?And as far as the resolution is concerned: 800x600 please. I'm saving for an 18 inch TFT monitor. Till then I use the 800x600.Regards

Thanks a lot, Hans.I certainly will put a couple more screen shots on the screen shots forum. I do not know too much about TTA either. I do know that they are flying from Rotterdam, since I see them over there quite frequently.Regarding the screen shots, if you like I can mail you a few nice ones in 800x600 resolution.Best regards,Henri

Hans,Reading your message again, I now understand you prefer to use Fly! II in 800x600. Indeed, this was my original question. Okay, I will start working on the 800x600 version as well then. Perhaps we will upload that a bit later. Just shrinking the bitmaps from 1024x768 to 800x600 gives very poor results (edges). This implies that I have to manually edit about all bitmaps. I hope to finish that job before I go on holiday.Best regards,Henri

www.tta.nl:TTA company profile and commercial development Since 1996 Trans Travel Airlines (TTA) operates scheduled services between European cities. Founded in 1985 the company was active in general aviation, charter flights, ambulance flights and ownership of a fleet of leased-out single engine aircraft.The development of a regional scheduled network started in 1996 with the route between Rotterdam and Hamburg, based on a future plan of creating a network within north-west Europe for business related transportation on region to region routes and links to main airports for feeder traffic. By now TTA has expanded it's operation to 7 different routes and ad-hoc charter flights.TTA operates the comfortable ATR 42 aircraft with a capacity of 46 passengers, the Beech 1900D aicraft and a luxurious Beech 200. As an independent company, TTA has interline and ticketing agreements with a large number of other airlines as KLM, SAS, Lufthansa, Sabena, Aer Lingus, British Airways, Deutsche BA, LOT, etc. A closer commercial co-operation with other carriers, - regional and main carries -, is a priority for the coming period. The further development of TTA's network is also depending of this future strategy. The total number of passengers flown on TTA network in 2000 was 32.000. In 2002 TTA expects more than 75.000 passengers.

Thanks, Fred.Good to know that there are several people going to use 800x600. That makes it worth the effort. I hope to have the bitmaps for this resolution finished in a couple of days. If all goes well, Jarno and I will release the plane (version 3) sometime at the end of coming week.Best regards,Henri

Hello Henri and Jarno,Thank you both so much for your comprehensive answers.As far as Amsterdam Schiphol is concerned, I think a lot of Fly!ers would love to have this airport terramodeld. But unfortunately I don't have the skills to develop it. So I will have to wait for a volunteer who has. Maybe we can place a call on the forum!

Fred, and Hans too,Conversion of the 800x600 bitmaps went a lot faster than expected. Experience counts, I think, and the lower resolution also made things easier. So the coming release will definitely also work for 800x600.At the moment I am still waiting for the go-ahead from the owner of the rear-view bitmaps I am using. The description with the FS2k2 panel where I got them from is extremely unclear about who actually is the owner of the files. In fact there are several readme files included (since that panel also is a compilation of several contributions) and that is really confusing. Anyway, I think I have it sorted out. Now lets hope I get the permission.Best regards,Henri
