DC Designs Teases Concorde in MSFS


We have known that DC Designs has been busy created a variety of fast aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator, but perhaps the biggest of those fast planes is the iconic Concorde. The team at DC Designs has today shared a teaser of it running in Microsoft Flight Simulator as a “properly adapted gLTF model.”

In particular, the team said that the PBR now looks “much better” than it has before, and the preview image isn’t yet optimised. DC Designs did say that there’s still plenty of work to be done but now seemed like a good time to share a brief snippet for where the aircraft is heading. Whilst this screenshot was taken at sub-sonic speeds, the team has been learning ways to make sure that the aircraft can fly as smooth and as fast as it did in real life. Bringing Concorde to Microsoft Flight Simulator will be a major re-build of the aircraft released on Prepar3D and thus work will start once the Tomcats are released.

Alongside the Concorde teaser, DC Designs shared a quick status report on the F-15 update. Whilst they have finished the update, one “tiny, but hugely frustrating bug” keeps causing the nose wheel animation to be incorrect. The team is looking at various solutions to fix the problem, and as such, the update will be released next week. Alongside that, the F-14 Tomcats will go back into development at pace and soon both be uploaded to the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace for people to buy directly in the simulator.

You can learn a bit more about the DC Designs F-15 Eagle Variants for Microsoft Flight Simulator in our first look video. Otherwise, you can view a few more previews and details on the update on the DC Designs’ Facebook page.
