X-Plane developer Michael Wilson has shared some previews of an upcoming update to his popular Douglas DC-8 aircraft over on the x-plane.org forums. The iconic four-engine jetliner has a bunch of fixes and additions in the works, but this update focuses on;
- Wings, engine, belly and engine pylons updated to PBR material (for X-Plane 11)
- Added a functional CIVA to XP 11 (thanks for Jakob Ketterl)
- Many 3D instruments made for the L-1011 upgrade will be added to the DC-8s (for example, the ball type artificial horizon)
The post included detailed photos of both the CFM and Pratt and Whitney engines that the DC-8 was equipped with, and it's looking great!
