Carenado DO228

Beautiful Rendentation

Bottom Line it the D0228 is a keeper! Beautifully depicted, easy on FPS, low on your VAS useage (thanks Carenado).  A fine balance of overdoing the Aircraft in the fly-ability in your  simulator.   Carenado must have released this aircraft as an easy to get in and fly without too much effort - without having to spend hours pouring over manuals.  

The flight characteristics are predicable, and  enjoyable  with a weighty but nimble feel while you are en-route to your next airport or air strip. The aircraft is perfect in many scenarios.  I spent a few hours in and around flying and landing day and night, in different weather conditions - the DO228 is a pleasure to use in the Flight Simulator environment with plenty of VAS to spare for those long flights without worry of OOMs, at least for me - read my OOM post.

The looks of the aircraft is stunning.  If you like the twin turbo props, with enough complexity to keep you busy but not overtire your brain this is one fine aircraft to own. 

Comes in 6 HD liveries (HD is the High Def versions) + the necessary manuals for emergency checklist, Normal Checklist, Performance Tables, Reference Manual, FMS manual, MFD manual, the GNS530 and a recommended settings manual.

Lots of other nice features: GNS530 option, 4096 x 4096 textures, Volumetric Side view prop effect, 3d sounds, and a custom panel.

Please note that the aircraft is VC cockpit only and no 2d panels.

Concerns:  The 32 bit environment, The initial loading of the Aircraft consumes 1.5gb VAS, if you change your mind and load a second livery of the same aircraft that VAS goes up with each change. This is a problem in the limiting 32bit environment, and I don't understand why vendors have not added a "flush memory" feature when changing between aircraft. PLEASE for the love of GOD address these VAS  issues.

I live at the edge of the forest in semi-moist locations, I enjoy larva, and other delights. Although I am toothless and mostly warty, I am a sight to see.
