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.
What do you think about the 2D panel? I’m not asking about the 2D panel of any specific aircraft, just the 2D panel in general. Do you love it? Hate it? Don’t care? The reason I’m asking this question is because the DC-9 could very well be the last aircraft I make with a traditional 2D panel.
Join Matthias Hanel on this flight report as he flies the DC-9 Classic from Stavanger in southern Norway all the way up to the far north for a landing in snowy Tromsø.
Günter Steiner from the LINDA project is currently working on a LINDA module for the DC-9 Classic.
LINDA is an interface that sits between the aircraft and your hardware (joystick or other input device) and makes assigning swiches as simple as possible.
