Digital Replica Cessna 310L Updated, Gets FMOD Sounds

310L 4

Recently we reported on the release of Digital Replica‘s debut aircraft for X-Plane, the Cessna 310L. The aircraft, which retails for $24.95, was well received by early adopters. The one thing that seemed to be a downfall for most though, was the absence of custom and/or FMOD sounds for the aircraft.

Since then, the aircraft has seen an update to version 1.05, which bought with it a handful of fixes, additional customisation options, and a new KING64 DME.
Less than a week later it was updated once again to v1.0.6. This update included a couple of fixes to textures and lighting, but the big addition was the custom FMOD sounds that early purchasers had been asking for.
For both changelogs, see the end of this post.

Digital Replica’s Cessna 310L is available from X-Aviation, with the price remaining $24.95.
