Ihr liebt Flugsimulation.
Wir berichten darüber.

Zurück in die Vergangenheit: BlackSquare bieten jetzt für zwei Standard-Flugzeuge des MSFS Mods an, die die Cockpits der King Air und Caravan in Uhrenladen verwandeln. Aber auch die Systeme sollen mit dem Mod nochmals mehr Tiefe bekommen.

Die Mods sind jetzt bei JustFlight erschienen. Einmal gibt es das Uhrenladen-Outfit für die Standard Cessna Caravan und dann für die King Air. Das Caravan-Outfit kostet 25 Euro, die King Air wird für 35 Euro auf Zeitreise geschickt. 

Die Mods nehmen dabei die Standard-Modelle des Sims und ersetzen vor allem die Instrumente. Außen- und Innenmodell bleiben vorwiegend unangetastet. Hinter den Kulissen soll aber auch noch mehr passieren: So werden die Elektrik-Systeme angefasst, aber auch Engine-Failure sollen bei zu viel Stress möglich sein. 

Analog King Air:

 

FEATURES OVERVIEW

Model

  • Accurately modelled King Air 350 interior ONLY (uses default exterior model), created from hundreds of reference photos, panoramas and technical documentation
  • 100% MSFS native animation code for the smoothest animations and cockpit interactions using either legacy or new cockpit interaction modes
  • 4096×4096 (4K) textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for leather, fabric, plastic, stitches, scratches, carpet and tooling marks, resulting in a texture resolution of 10,000 pixels per square inch (90.0kB)
  • Extensive use of the new MSFS decal system for nearly vector-graphic quality of labels, arrows and exterior detail features

Cockpit

  • Greatly enhanced instrument panel detail compared to default aircraft with every label and marking in its place. If it appears in the real aircraft, you can interact with it!
  • Custom-coded steam gauges with low-pass filtering, needle bounce and physics provide ultra-realistic and silky smooth animations like you’ve never seen before
  • Carefully modelled components match the depth and character of the real instrumentation, based on reference photos, schematics and real-world measurements. Unlike other expensive Flight Sim aircraft, every piece of equipment that appears in a Black Square aircraft is modelled after a real piece of aircraft equipment, and will behave the same way in its primary functionality.
  • Every knob, switch and button is interactable and implemented, along with its respective electrical circuitry. Turn systems on and off or pull circuit breakers to see the impact it has on your generators and battery via the analog meters. Many pieces of equipment respond correctly to electrical configurations with warning messages and diagnostic codes.
  • Fully 3D cockpit lighting technology for every gauge and panel, with ambient bounce lighting for a more immersive night-time experience that won’t leave you fumbling around in unrealistically dark spots
  • 4096×4096 (4K) PBR textures on cockpit and panel for crisp instrumentation. Even see the fingerprints on instrument glass!
  • Hideable yokes, adjustable sun visors and other cockpit aesthetics
  • All placards and warning labels from the real aircraft represented

Systems

Black Square’s overhauled cockpits with analog instrumentation go far beyond a visual upgrade. Included, you will find a complete redesign of all aircraft systems to more closely match the real aircraft, with a focus on electrical systems. Also included are more accurate weight and balance, lighting systems, flight dynamics and ground handling. Enjoy features such as:

  • Completely interactable electrical system with 12 buses and 165 circuits
  • Selective state saving for radio selection, radio frequency memory, cabin aesthetics etc.
  • Fully modelled cabin environmental (temperature) system with controls and gauges
  • Crew/Passenger oxygen system that depletes according to pressure altitude, passenger occupancy and the biological demand of each passenger based on weight
  • Electrical bus-tie and fault logic, AC inverter logic and bleed air valve logic
  • Improved turbine dynamics (ITT, TRQ, Ng, Fuel Flow, Inertial Separator), battery charging circuity and load shedding
  • Engine limit excursions decrease engine health and will eventually lead to failure
  • Emergency gear extension hand pump logic and working propeller governor tests
  • Dimmable annunciators and backlighting controlled via electrical circuits and radio power, and automatically dimming screens via photocell match real-world equipment
  • Remote compass control with automatic gyro slaving simulated with electrical systems

Checklists

Over 500 checklist items are provided for 45+ Normal, Abnormal, and Emergency procedures in textual form in the manual, and in-game, using the MSFS native checklist system with control and instrument highlighting. If it’s in the checklist, it’s settable in the aircraft!

Sounds

Black Square’s Analog King Air features the default MSFS-native (Wwise) 3D King Air 350i sound package, inside and out. Default sounds have been carefully assigned to all interactable cockpit elements for an authentic 3D spatial experience.

  • Rich audio for every switch, button, lever and electrical system
  • Detailed physics-based effects on engine and wind noise
  • Accurately positioned 3D sound sources (best enjoyed in VR!)

Flight dynamics

The Analog King Air features a slightly improved flight model compared to the default King Air 350i, with tweaks based on operator feedback online.

Also wenn das hält was es verspricht wäre es ein pflichtkauf für mich, ich mag Glasscockpits aus verschiedenen Gründen nicht und wenn dann auch noch die systemtiefe verbessert wird wäre es eine echte Bereicherung.

Ist doch noch gar nicht released.

Wow das ist ja fast schon ein Pflichtkauf! Endlich King Air fliegen, ohne sich über das G3000 zu ärgern… (auch wenn die WT Mod das ganze schon deutlich verbessert hat!)

Plant ihr vielleicht nen Stream über die King Air und / oder die Caravan? 😉

Liebe Grüße,
Benni

Puh… ich finde die Preise für das Gebotene relativ hoch. Ich meine wenn die “Overhauls” wirklich der absolute Ober-Burner sind dann investiere ich das gerne… ich warte jetzt aber erst mal die ersten Impressionen ab.

Antwort auf  EngineIgnition

Es mag hoch erscheinen, aber für mich ist es quasi wie ein neues Flugzeug-Addon. Die G1000 Modelle im MSFS fliege ich ausnahmslos überhaupt nicht, d.h. mit den Analog-Addons würde ich 2 für mich komplett neue Flugzeuge bekommen und das ist es mir wiederum wert. Vor allem die Caravan reizt mich von ihrem Einsatzprofil her.

Überraschend: Die Flightsim Studio AG arbeitet schon länger an einer Umsetzung des E-Jets für den Microsoft Flight Simulator. Morgen will Betriebspartner Aerosoft das Produkt mit einem Video offiziell ankündigen. Wir haben uns vorher schon einmal umgehört, was von dem Add-on zu erwarten ist.
Neuigkeiten vom Volanta-Team: Bald soll es zum Tracking-Programm auch die passende Smartphone-App für Premiumkund:innen geben. Mit Update 1.4 sollen Streamer bald ein Streaming-Overlay per Volanta einbinden können. Und mit FlightAware gibt es auch eine neue Partnerschaft.
