Post subject: Aero Commander 520 Holding Short

I hope to have the AC520 ready for release by Friday 16th.

It features optimized exterior model and VC (actually much smaller poly count than the original), much better-FPS friendly, totally redone virtual cockpit and cabin, new hi-resolution vc panel and gauges and improved flight model. Nice subtle improvements on the exterior plus my first use of the "squishy tire" technique. This is a much improved AC520 over the original release.

See the cabin shot a VC panel shot below. (Much better view in the sim but compression and change to jpg has its losses)

I hope to have a beta link available for some of you Monday night.

Wink

It's easy to see why Milton's work is considered some of the best freeware on the web today and easily CC member's favorites!

Great job as always Milton!! That 'glass' effect on the table is one outstanding feature!

The AC520 was uploaded to Com_Central about one hour ago, awaiting approval I suspect. Smile

I hope you enjoy her. Lots of hours invested to go Hi-Res VC and beautiful interior cabin, and make her very frame rate friendly without losing quality.

WOW.

Snagged it and took it out for a nice early-morning 3-leg beer run. Just absolutely gorgeous and beautiful, well-mannered in every way and an absolute pleasure to fly. Can't thank Milton and crew enough, and having it hosted here a little early was icing on the cake.

It's getting to where I question why I'd ever download any other aircraft ever again!!

Looks like a great time there boss! I just grabbed it myself and can't wait to take it for a trip out around Ranier, St Helens, and back to the Sty. Nice long flight to break her in right!

I picked it up as soon as I heard it was released! The first thing I did was hit shift+Z to see what my framerates were doing. I might as well have been flying the default Cessna - there was no hit on frames that I could see! I'm considering changing my default flight to this bird!!!
