A brand new update for the Aerosoft Twin Otter has been released bringing the aircraft product to version 184.108.40.206. The changelog itself is fairly extensive, but many of the sound issues we mentioned in our first impressions article appear to be fixed. Many users were also leaving feedback to Aerosoft on this particular subject via their forums.
In the changelog, Aerosoft has said that there has been a rework of the volume balancing of the internal and external sounds, along with improvements to the wind sound when the aircraft is not moving.
Alongside the changes to the sound package, there have been fixes also to other areas of the Twin Otter. For example, wing lights have been added, along with a GPWS inhibit switch. Furthermore, those who had issues with the autopilot losing altitude in either ALT or GS HOLD modes will see these issues are also fixed.
Version 220.127.116.11 of the Twin Otter can be obtained through the Aerosoft One installer, or via other third-party vendors.
Aerosoft released the Twin Otter just one week ago and the product comes with a number of features and varieties included with the package. The Twin Otter comes with floats and wheels (cargo and passenger), along with the DHC-6 300 version, with wheels, cargo, floats and ski options available. Furthermore, the -300 series also includes a 3 blade and 4 blade prop option, along with a skydiver version. The differences between the models can be found in each of the variants included.
This diverse and renowned aircraft is now ready to take flight in Microsoft Flight Simulator. You can get all the models and liveries included with the Aerosoft Aircraft Twin Otter for €29.95 (plus local VAT). A version of the Twin Otter is due to release in the future for Xbox.
