Today third-party developers had some interesting assets to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
We start with Aeroplane Heaven, which posted a video mostly focusing on the sounds of its classic Douglas DC-3.
Next is a single but juicy screenshot of the McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Extender by Aero Dynamics, showcased below in a Dutch livery.
The aircraft is going to be freeware, and you can follow its development on the developer’s Discord server.
The “Experimental” version of the aircraft has received its first implementation of VNAV functionality, which is a pretty significant milestone.
It’s worth keeping in mind that the implementation is work-in-progress and as such affected by bugs ad issues, so you shouldn’t switch to the experimental branch unless you’re willing to deal with that.
If you’d rather have a smoother experience, you’re likely better off sticking with the “Development” version and waiting until the VNAV functionality is polished enough to be implemented on that one.
We also get a video from the developer, highlighting the massive progress done with the aircraft’s soundscape.
