    LiveStream DC-6 Beta

    If your inteerested in seeing the PMDG DC-6 in operation I will be livestreaming for a few hours. You can also try and catch me in the future streams as well. Look forward to showing you the plane.
  4. I just picked the DC-6 up today, and I wanted to express my thanks for bringing this excellent product to X-Plane. I love nostalgic aircraft, and this is just awesome in quality and immersion. X-Plane has received a significant boost with this product. Nice job PMDG! Cadmus Hawke

    Catalina to L.A.

    Some rich tourists have chartered a DC-6 for flying to Catalina Island. Now they're on their way back.
  6. Moved by the DC-6 for X-Plane development by PMDG, and in anticipation of glimpsing its VC for the first time, a couple of weeks ago I did something I never thought I would. I bought X-Plane. After years and years of Microsoft flight simulator, preceded by countless hours of fun with the amazing FLY! series, I reached a point were I was happy with the sim. FSX was finally working flawlessly on my machine, and considering the amount of high end addons for sale (I admit I own quite a few, especially from PMDG and A2A) I felt compelled to stay with FSX forever. Please note that FSX is, and will be installed on my computer for as long as I keep flying virtual airplanes, however this isn't about comparing two simulators, it is about explaining how it was incredibly rewarding for me to spend the last few weeks learning the ins and outs of a new platform, and obtaining results I never thought I would. Since I needed an advanced aircraft to properly understand how X-plane would behave with a complex airplane, and the Dc-6 was a few weeks away, I've bought the IXEG 737 and spent a few hours learning both the airplane and the sim while searching and installing loads of freeware content which greatly improved my experience. Basically, the interface isn't as easy to use as the FSX interface, the view options and controls are quite hard to set up properly, but I found so many tutorials online that after one hour or so I was using the sim as a pro. I've found it to perform reasonably well on my system, with some limitations mostly related to clouds which do affect performance if not correctly set. I love the fact that it is possible to change the time of the day, and weather without the sim having to load anything, it is an instantaneous process. As I said I won't compare the two simulators, I can only say that I'm happy with my choice and I now have two different platforms with a multitude of addons ready to be explored. After the DC-6 release I haven't flown anything else, it is simply amazing, and especially, a joy to hand-fly (by my personal experience all the advanced addons I've bought for X-Plane handle incredibly well during manual flight), and I've covered several thousands of miles mostly going up and down Portugal with it, loving every moment so far. I'll leave you some of my latest screenshots, please note that apart from the airplanes, everything else including scenery is freeware, which surprised me considering the quality (Real terra haze, Spain UHD, and some airports). So, in the end it was quite easy to adapt to this platform, the planes behave fantastically, the DC-6 as expected is a work of art, and if you're undecided about whether or not you should get X-plane for one airplane only, all I can say is that it is quite easy to make X-plane look amazing without spending any money, considering the quality of the freeware, and there are already some excellent airplanes for the platform, with detailed systems and fantastic flight dynamics. There is a learning curve, mostly regarding the user interface, but it isn't as bad as some people claim, nothing that a few tutorials won't solve. To PMDG, thank you for another excellent airplane, and for giving me a good reason to try X-plane.
  7. Hello, I'm flying and really enjoying the DC-6. I'm using P3Dv4. My question to the community is this: how can I map joystick buttons to autopilot functions? If I knew the control names, I could do it. I fully understand how to use FSUIPC. It's that there's so many entries in FSUIPC for autopilot functionality... I'm wanting to map the following items: On/Off switch Alt Hold switch The disengage lever (sorry to not recall its name) An axis (if possible) or buttons to the gyropilot left/right knob Mode selector (gyropilot, localizer and approach) Glide wheel or pitch wheel up/down I'd be very grateful if someone has this information. Thanks
  8. Hello, I just realized that Angelique van Campen has published Part 1 of a very intensive review of the new PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster. I'll be working on reading this in the next few days, but wanted to post the link so everyone else can enjoy it too. It looks like it will be very interesting. http://www.x-plained...-6-cloudmaster/ Enjoy! Bob Angelique van Campen
