    Manfred Jahn Douglas C-47 for Prepar3D Version 5

    This should make some people very happy.

    Manfred has sent me the preliminary, pre-beta C-47 Dakota for Prepar3Dv5. I am doing basic testing, which at this stage looks very, very good, but while I have the model Manfred asked me to work out the complexities of updating the skins to be V5 compatible. The new model has the blue channel switch enabled, so we are fixing the notorious black metallic night textures but that plagued V4 and V4.5. I've taken the profiles I developed for the Boeing Stratos and applied them to all of my DAK textures I had done for previous earlier versions.

    These skins are not back compatible to V4.5 and earlier, but I had updated those a while back, so all of my skins are available for FSX, P3D all versions and of course, V5.

    For the skinners out there, I'll be doing a tutorial on V5 blue channel techniques once the DAK and Stratos are released. I'm also updating my other models that I have recovered or data crash. It's a big nut, so bear with me friends.

    I felt the DAK needed a priority, and Manfred is obviously keen to get the new "old girl" out the door, so here we are.

    OK, here's the vid. Realize that I have upgraded all of my previous skins and added some new ones for V5. They are not all shown here, but the video speaks for itself.

    FYI...Manfred is on Holiday for three weeks so it would be mucho appreciated if we respect his privacy. I'll be happy to field any questions you might have here, so ask away if the urge arises.

    I am so excited, I just have to post my reply from the FSX section here as well:

    GMAN5250 posted: "This should make some people very happy."

    That must be the understatement of the year, Lol.

    Omg I am so excited to have this beauty in my P3Dv5 PBR hangar, and take her out for a spin.

    I was glued to the screen, watching the video. By now I have watched it 3 times.

    I can't wait

    Christmas in July is a fact

    Thank you and Manfred for bringing the DAK to P3Dv5 PBR.
    One day without laughter, is one day without living.
    One day without Flight Simming, is one day lost living.

  3. #3 I reading that GMAN has made the A2A Strat so it works in P3D v4 and v5? I just reading what I hope it says?

    Forgot about that one. When I first started in Flight Simming I had that...and it was awesome. Oh-well...I keep hoping.
