C90B for FS9 from Carenado

110341_28Carenado‘s promise to keep supporting the many users of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 is still bearing fruit, this time with the release of the C90B King Air.

The twin executive turboprop comes in six liveries (plus a blank for repainters), plus a wide array of custom gauges, animations and eye candy. 2d panel fans may want to steer clear, though, as the aircraft comes only with 2d pop-ups for some gauges – the rest is available in the VC only.

Definite virtual beer required here… I’m teetotal, so it’ll have to be virtual beer, but consider one bought for you at least. I overreacted there as well and I apologise for that. Before I say anything else, I’m going to repeat something else I’ve said before, possibly not to you, but, again, I’ll still stand by it. If you’re happy with FS9, stick with it and don’t bother with FSX. Only upgrade at this point if you want something specific (e.g. MS Acceleration, A2A Accu-Sim or Orbx scenery, for example) that FS9 can’t offer. Otherwise, why spend money to do… Read more »

Ian we have been cool for along time so I apologize for mis-reading your statement (and read what I wrote just before your last post). I do ask if you have any insight on a good machine I can get for FSX and it’s proper setup that me and many other don’t seem to know about please post it in that Avsim thread I have a link for above. If you know a way to get FSX up and running with little or no issue (look better than FS9) I’d love to hear it (read it). Thanks…

My initial piece of advice is don’t buy a Dell. They’re built as business/home office PCs with, basically, parts built to a budget for that purpose. A small local supplier could build you a better PC, cheaper and with equal support. That said, I know a lot of people who run FSX without OOMs. They accept the limitations of their hardware and don’t try and shove every slider right (although my 7yr old, sadly deceased, PC could do that flying the Beaver in the back country and still achieve 25-30fps). On my new PC, which is an i7 @3.4GHz with… Read more »

For goodness sakes, Dillon. READ. https://www.simflight.com/2013/05/19/c90b-for-fs9-from-carenado/#comment-372121 THAT is the comment I referred to. You continuously fail to read what people write and then use it to try and further your agenda. If you read what I actually said, I am saying that FS9 continues to be relevant; the exact opposite of what you claim. As for “looks as good”, it doesn’t. It can only support lower resolution textures. It cannot support models with as many vertices or draw calls. It doesn’t support the graphical effects. The sound engine is less capable. That does not make it a bad sim. Now… Read more »
