Whilst the hype and anticipation for Aerosoft aircraft is currently focused on the upcoming CRJ for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the Twin Otter is now getting plenty of attention on the Aerosoft forums as development has continued to progress. Over the past few weeks, various in-development previews of the aircraft have been shared, including those from within the simulator and renders of the aircraft.
Whilst development is still ongoing, various renders of the aircraft have been shared, along with how the aircraft’s cockpit is being developed to make use of the new technology found in the new simulator.
Furthermore, we also now know that there will be two virtual cabins; one that is for passengers and another which is designed specifically for cargo.
Along with renders, we have also been treated to various in-sim screenshots of the aircraft in action.
It was also pointed out that various experiments are currently taking place to enhance the realism of the modelling and texture work even further. For example, the top layer of the textures have a “clearcoat” applied to “create a less uniform color.”
Progress of the aircraft appears to be coming along nicely and with frequent updates posted, the forums are a good place to keep an eye on the development. Anything significant, FSElite will keep you updated.
