DC Designs Announces Concorde

DC Designs Concorde (7)

Its certainly been a very exciting fortnight for Concorde enthusiasts. Hot on the heels of Aeroplanes Heaven’s announcement on 8th May and cockpit renders today, DC Designs have announced that they too will be bringing the iconic supersonic bird to some our favourite simulators.

DC Designs, known for their fighter aircraft add-ons made the announcement on their Facebook page. The company also took the opportunity to share a little more about the project and what we can expect.

Of particular interest to the more ‘hardcore’ Concorde enthusiasts was the paragraph in which DC Designs outlined the complexity of the aircrafts systems. DC Designs were very open in saying that the product will still be aimed at the entertainment market but stated that the depth will be such that users will still require use of the engineers panel to complete a flight. It was also pointed out that the complexity of Concorde is so great anyway that there will still be “plenty to do for those who take on the challenge”.

As well as the announcement itself, a range of external screenshots were also shared.

The images really do portray the beauty of the Concorde itself with some focusing on the undercarriage detail and couple also demonstrating the famous ‘droop snoot’ that the aircraft was known for.

DC Designs announced that the Concorde will be its next release for FSX, FSX: Steam, all versions of P3D and the upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator. While no concrete date was given for this, it was stated that the project is well on its way to completion and we shall be able to “race across the Atlantic quite soon”.

This is certainly one we will be watching closely and we will be sure to keep you updated with developments when they come.

Developer iniSimulations has shared a couple of new previews for their upcoming A300-600F On The Line. On the X-Plane.org forums, two new previews of the TMA Cargo livery was shared. The original screenshots are in 4K so head over there to see them in their full resolution.

The new previews remind us that the aircraft will first be released as a freighter version, with a free passenger variant expansion following on soon after the initial release.

As we mentioned in a post a few weeks ago, the team are working on the key systems of the aircraft, but are still working towards ensuring this a high fidelity aircraft. In their statement from last time, they also shared previews for the custom Electronic Flight Bag and Flight Management Computer.

This livery is one of the first of many to be created by the iniBuilds team, who will be taking requests from users through their Discord channel.

We’ll continue to track the progress of the iniSimulations A300 as we get new information. A number of previews for the externals can also be found here.

To keep up with further developments of both the iniSimulations A300-600R and A380 projects, head on over to their forum or Discord.

As a reminder, we do publish weekly updates from iniBuilds from their library of freeware.
