Stephen posted a topic in X-Plane Plugins and Simulator AddonsPlugin Update : REP - Reality Expansion Packs v3.4.1 SimCoders have updated their REP - Reality Expansion Packs to version v3.4.1 across all of their REP packs. The changes are quite small but very significant in this part of the changelog: 100% custom engine model independent from X-Plane defaults Native Virtual Real That note above is just the .1 change... But since I did the review on the native Baron B58 version for REP only a month or so ago there has actually been a huge amount of changes to the expansion pack as listed at the bottom of this update. You sorta get the point... and that extensive update list was only then in the last few months of this year. Five REP packs are changed with this v3.4.1 update and those aircraft include... Native X-Plane Baron B58 (X-Plane11) X-PlaneOrgStore Here is the review: Aircraft Plugin Review : REP for Default B58 Baron by SimCoders _____________________ Carenado Centurion 210 II XP11 X-PlaneOrgStore (none REP Review is available here : Aircraft Review : Cessna CT210M Centurion ll XP11 by Carenado) _____________________ Carenado’s Beech F33A Bonanza v3.1 or newer X-PlaneOrgStore _____________________ Carenado’s Beech V35B Bonanza v3.1 or newer X-PlaneOrgStore _____________________ Native X-Plane Cessna 172 (X-Plane11) X-Plane.OrgStore The focus here in version v1.4.3 of the REP across the range is on custom sounds, although most of the newer aircraft come with FMOD sound, SimCoders have gone one better to update the sounds to a more realistic custom level. In the case of the two Bonanzas F33A and V35B it also brings custom sounds to these non-FMOD aircraft. Flight dynamics are across the range are also improved for both X-Plane10 and 11 versions as is the entire engine modeling dynamics Flight performance tuning has been extensive throughout the constant version changes to cover the extensive X-Plane11 performance aspects, and it certainly feels that way, as from the B56 native version there is far more feel and character and better all round sounds including fuel pump, startup, roll and all sounds are now 3d and multi-directional. You can also do the walk-around after the flight now as well as at the start point. So now the walkaround has two settings and not the one with PreFlight (left), but now also with the option for PostFlight (right) In reality this is a good idea, as the single PreFlight didn't really work... and now you can leave your aircraft correctly closed down after a flight. Maintenance report is still excellent and improved, but the "handy" pop out checklist from the right side of the screen is not so handy and damn annoying, not because it constantly keeps popping out if you go too far over the right side of your screen as your flying, adjusting knobs or switchgear, but the size of it when it does... ... you can't disable it either! The weights (Mass) and Balance panel is now available on all the five of REP packages (Now including the F33A and V35B) as is the automatic engine startup feature... Note the V35B version also includes: Osborne Wing Tips Realistic electric fuel pumps control panel and operation 3600 pounds gross weight STC Realistic roll behavior Tail wag damping So overall the main points of this update are to standardise the full REP package over all of the aircraft that have been awarded the REP package treatment, the only differences between the packages are just the different aspects of the aircraft's performance and individual features. All Reality Expansion Packs are priced at US$19.95 And all the updates are free to any purchaser that has purchased one of the updated aircraft, X-Plane11 is required for all of the packages. ________________________________________ Plugin Update by Stephen Dutton 2nd May 2018 Copyright©2018: X-Plane Reviews Full B58 Changelog (Other REP aircraft changelogs are extremely similar in the main aspects, only differences are performance and flying dynamics) V3.4.1 1.
