Lionheart has an impressive and future best seller here : stunning 3D model, strong Garmin equipments with numerous animations..
Discover the Dynon PFD D-100 and the AvMap GPS system, and explore every detail in 3D up to the engine. The WT-9 Dynamic is available for FSX or FS2004.
Lionheart Creations are pleased to announce the release of a new aircraft, the Aerospool Dynamic.
This new, extreme detail package features 2 versions of fuselages; with and without rear windows, two versions of wings; with and without wingtips, extreme detail pilots that are animated.Â The package features the D-100 Dynon glass panel system screen with sub menu’s and ability to select settings in the system as like the real D-100.Â It also comes with its sister unit, the HS-34 with tuneable Heading, OBS Course, and ALT functions.Â The radio stack include a Garmin SL30 high functionality radio, and also a high functionality Garmin GTX-327.Â The package features both the Fixed Gear (FG) version and Retractable Gear (RG) version.Â The gauges are all created just for the dynamic and feature such things as the German ‘Winter’ Aux metric gauges, the unique Rotax Tachometer with engine time on it, and also the very wild FlyBox prop pitch computer which manages the RPM and pitch of prop and engine together.Â The ‘basic functionality’ AvMap GPS screen has a sleep mode to help speed up frame rates for slower computers.
This package is a ‘high resolution’ package meaning that the FS2004 version has several 32bit textures in each of the texture folders, as well as ‘double sized’ textures (some) in the FSX version.Â These are done for crisp, high resolution of textures.Â Some lower spec computers may stumble on this, so we have created a Textures Performance Pack for each, the FS2004 and FSX versions, which enable you to speed up the planes performance in FS, should you have frame rate issues.Â This is available at the Lionheart Creations Dynamic webpage, free download on the Performance Packs.
Lastly, we feature a new ‘in cockpit’ Owners Manual.Â This was brought about by customers in the past not able to find the PDF manuals that we supplied them with.Â To make it more simple, we now feature the manual in a popup form in the plane.Â Click on the brown manual in the left cockpit pocket, and allow it 3 seconds to load, and a sharp little manual resembling a log book will appear.Â You can flick forward or backward in iPad book fashion to go through the 40 page compilation, which features tons of screenshots and data and info on the planes features, instrumentation, and other tidbits throughout the aircraft.
Short story of its creation;Â The Dynamic Saga, a year in the making
Many virtual and real world pilots had written in, asking if this could be made for Flight Simulator.Â We contacted Aerospool and they were quite enthusiastic to this and even began sending us all the required data, drawings, etc, needed to make a high detail virtual model of their sleek plane.Â They asked that we make this also for FS2004, which we did.Â During the creation of the Dynamic, we found we had too many Polygons, the famed limit of 65,000 Polys.Â I looked into the rumoured Unlimited Export, and found that several people around the world had figured out how to do this for Flight Sim Design Studio (FSDS).Â But it had never been done with Gmax.Â Doug (PropTrash) from the FSDeveloper forums helped me into the basics, and we began working on a way for the Gmax version to also do this.Â It took approximately a month and at first, just wasnt working, but in the end we figured it out and it now runs nicely.Â The Dynamic, finished, now sports 564,000 Polygons!Â A massive jump past the limit of 65,000, and also we smashed the 4MM limit as well, so we feature extremely well made small switches and toggles, levers and what not, throughout the aircraft.
We came upon another feature that we were never able to do.Â With unlimited Poly counts, we could have an engine in high detail, different pilots that could be changed out, different wings, and also different fuselages.Â What we do is a system called displacement, where we hide one, and bring out (Render) another.Â Wings, pilots, fuselages, and an engine that disappears when the cowling is replaced. Attempts of this in the past didnt work, but with new code work breakthroughs and unlimited Poly use, we were able to make this happen finally.
When we finished the FS2004 version, it was time to make the FSX version, and sadly, we found that the plane would not export through FSX.Â It was literally too huge, causing the compiler to crash each time.Â One month was spent on trying to get it working.Â It didnt work and the Dynamic was to be released as a cross over for FSX people.Â Nearing release of the FS2004 version, I again tried to export, and this time, only exported 1 of the 4 high detail pilots per export model, and this worked.Â What we have with the FSX versions are 2 models that each have a male, and a female pilot.Â The FS2004 version has ‘in plane selectability’ to select male, female, or couple, pilot loadouts.Â The same goes for wings, fuselages as well, in both FSX and FS2004.Â (Yes…Â in the plane, you select the fuselage type and wings type from a switch panel, the Remote Console, which enables you to do these things from outside the craft).
Now that we have finished, we now have a beautiful aircraft with sleek high poly smoothing, an extreme-detail virtual cockpit with countless popups, new ‘in-plane’ feature selectability wings, fuselages, and pilots (FS2004 only on the pilots) and an incredible replica of the Rotax 912 UL 4 cylinder engine that appears when the cowling is removed.Â These planes are a blast to fly, and are extremely lite weight.Â Take-offs are fast and quick, and landings can be very short due to its high lift and low weight ratio’s.Â This girl acts like a STOL aircraft.
If you want a new plane with lots of realism, if you are curious as to what the latest high demand, popular plane throughout Europe is, if you want to see what jewel the Aerospool factory in Praviedza Slovakia have created, get this!Â I believe you will really appreciate it and fly the tarnation out of it.
