With so many aircraft designs flying around, why choose to develop a DC-9 for FSX? It’s a cool aircraft! What more do you need?! Well, actually the logic behind choosing to develop the DC-9 goes a bit deeper than that. I will try to explain.
Just recently came across an article on the Internet that detailed the differences between the various DC-9 models, as well as the MD-80 series, the MD-90 and B717. I thought it was a very interesting article and I wanted to share it with you.
I was recently ask why Coolsky doesn't develop for and support Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D flight simulator. The discussion quickly turned into one about the future of flight simming since P3D is often held up as the future of flight simming. I will try to explain here why I don't develop for or support P3D, and why I don't think it is the future of flight simming.
Flight One Software, in partnership with CoolSky, are now previewing their soon to be released Ultimate Airliners: The Super 80 Professional product which is a highly advanced aircraft and panel package which simulates a later version of the McDonnell Douglas MD-80. This version includes a more modern glass cockpit, with a full Flight Management System.
Flight One Software, in partnership with CoolSky, have officially released the FSX version of Ultimate Airliners - The Super 80.
This upgrade is more than a simple port over from FS9. For the model and textures, it is a complete rebuild utilizing the latest export tools and FSX materials.
