Beaver addon

Post by Krazycolin » Fri Jun 16, 2017 1:47 am

Hi all,

We are in the process of making an addon for the Beaver. This will contain the following items:

1. Straight floats
2. Straight floats with Barron STOL kit
3. Skis with Barron STOL kit
4. Tundra with STOL kit
5. Crop duster on regular wheels
6. Baseball hat for pilot (as a general option)
7. Pointy prop cap (as a general option)

(the crop duster will have the lever that turns the dusting on and off and there will be effects. No pesticides will be emitted but chem trails... who knows.)

We are also fixing the uv space map issue on the flaps/ailerons and elevators so that camo/asymmetrical paints can be done. This one will be propagated over to all Beavers.

If you have any specific requests... now is the time to ask for them but I make no promises as to whether or not they will be accepted.

Thanks

Actually everything you are proposing up top sounds great! This airplane is darn near perfect. IMO This is smallish but more opening doors on the plane would be nice. I can only get the pilots door to open. This is hardly a killer and all cosmetic but would be nice. Looking forward to seeing any add-on! :) STOL kits sound particularly sweet.

Would you please add a DME instead of a transponder on the Flight 1 GTN panels. The Transponder is built into the GTN and a DME would ne nice.

Thanks for considering,

Greg

Great ideas for the addons...

I too would ask for a DME, in place of the transponder...

How about the ADF instead? An ADF is already in the standard-radio version...

It is not adding but replacing...

Electronics won't be replaced. (not sure the semantics here...)

I wouldn't mind having a slightly 'lighter' version. Although with the many model configurations included, I see this being a big request.

I am using basic avionics (no weather radar) but still get some micro stutters and blurry textures. I can avoid most of this by closing unneeded programs, pausing AV and being selective about the areas I fly. I'm also going to try resize those 16 Mb texture files to see if that helps.

with straight floats you mean a non-amphibian version?

That'll be me then. Not so much a request, I assumed it was there anyway. All I wanted to know was where the heck is it!? Thanks for responding Gunnar, I now feel like the guy who's seen aliens but no-one believed him. Now they do. :D

The amphibian float nose wheel gear assembly disappeared into the black background at some point during the transition to Milviz. Can the parts be restored, or perhaps added and remapped to the 'float' file?
