Flat Overheads In About 90% Of FSX Payware Addons!

Thu May 15, 2008 3:26 pm

I'm a bit disappointed with most FSX addons. I bought many addons from many publishers. Wilco/Feelthere, CLS, Justflight, etc... I noticed that from about 10 aircrafts I bought (ABSOLUTELY LEGAL) only 2 had 3D overhead panel in VC!  Angry So I went to next addons. Finally I saw "LEVEL-D Boeing 767". Many people said that Level D is the highest level for Flight Simulator...

I flew this aircraft for first time and it worked perfectly. Sound... Panel... Model... Textures... And only one thing. It also had 2D overhead!  Angry  Wow!

What's going on? Or maybe only I have problem with it?  Confused

Could anybody explain???

I guess its the developers want to get it out fast, with out spending the time to create 3d switches ect. The only Payware addons I have that have 3d overheads are Captain Sim and PMDG. I just bought Wilco's 737 last night, great plane except for the almost unreadable 2d overhead.

To sum it up, if you want extreme quality, stick with PMDG and Captain Sim.

Or Flight1.
The Coolsky MD80 (I think, if not it's excellent mimmicry) and LDS767 have 3D overheads and are top quality overall.
I wish I were flying
