Dreamfoil Creations has released version 3 of their Embraer 110 Bandeirante, which most notably brings X-Plane 11 compatibility to the Brazilian regional prop.
The complete overhaul of the aircraft brings many new features, along with VR compatibility, new PBR textures inside and out, and an improved flight model for X-Plane 11. Additionally, the 3D model has been reworked, along with the visuals to bring it to life. Users can expect realistic 3D night lights throughout the interior, new exterior object, prop disc effects with a 3D hologram, and fully animated and articulated sun visors.
Not only has Dreamfoil worked on the visuals, but the interactivity with the aircraft will enhance every flight through the use of SmartMenu technology. SmartMenu technology enables clickable external areas that trigger certain events – for example; clicking the fuel inlet will pop up a refuelling menu, while opening the cargo doors will allow the user to change loads and balances. The menu on the nose of the aircraft will allow placement and removal of items such as GPU, chocks, pitot covers, engine covers and tail stand. Furthermore, users can alter aircraft settings on the fly without needing to restart the sim or reload the aircraft.
The sounds within the aircraft have also been improved, with Dreamfoil going so far as to simulate the proper airflow from the aircraft’s air conditioning system. This is on top of the 3D directional sounds throughout the plane, with over 50 individual sounds modelled right down to switches, buttons and circuit breakers, plus interior and exterior engine sound.
Users who are ready to jump into this regional prop for the first time can pick it up from the X-Plane.org store for $29.95, while existing users of the X-Plane 10 version can upgrade for only $19.95 (through the use of a coupon code found on your original purchase invoice).
