Thread: IRIS Texan Open Beta

  1. #1

    IRIS Texan Open Beta

    For those looking for the sale price it is now listed at half price ($20 AUD). I picked it up, but have not yet installed.

    Happy Holidays to all!

    Edit: Now installed. Much better than older version of Texan II. New instrumentation is great. Sound is "ho hum". One picture below -

    Dave/Smudge,

    This has my interest, but will the Tac Pack be a separate aircraft or an upgrade? Also will upgrade be a free patch or pay for DLC? Thanks

    Has my interest also. Dave's recent response was "Though the TacPack AT-6 is a seperate produce scheduled for later next year. "

    Still hasn't directly answered your question. Based on that response, I bet it isn't free, but I would sure like to see it as a "deeply discounted" PATCH for current T6 Texan II owners. Maybe Dave has not yet determined the details. What say you Dave?

    I wonder whether a T-6C is next?

    The Texan Open Beta package contains several T-6C textures, but for now at least it uses the T-6B model with them.

    The systems and information we have is dedicated to the T-6B, though from cockpit shots, the major difference in the B and C is the addition of external fuel tanks.

    As for the AT-6, it'll be a completely different product due to the significant increase in work required for it.

    As for discounts and costs.. I'm not saying anything at this stage... I confirmed the A-10 TacPack would be free when we started developing that and it bit me in the butt as we had no idea how significant the workload would be to integrate TackPack to that level.

    I'll be uploading a new version of the product later on today... just making some adjustments to the code and systems to match the manual.

    Cool! I can wait for the AT-6. In the mean time, I'll put some hours on the PC-21. Thanks for the update.

    Thanks - does it include RNZAF textures? Couldn't see any reference on their web site.

    Yes Naki it does...

    We've temporarily disabled purchases of the Texan Driver Early Access product whilst we upload a new version to the server.


    This version features a 200+ page manual to aid in your understanding and learning of the aircraft, along with some adjustments to code, systems and flight modelling.


    We anticipate the product to be back up for sale in about an hour. We will advise you here when it's ready.

    If you don't have a copy yet, head over to our store to purchase your copy today at 50% off its standard price!

    Smudge,

    I just purchased the Texan Driver Early Access product yesterday. How do I go about downloading this new version with the improved documentation?

    Mike M.​

    Mike, just log into your IRIS Store account and re-download the product from your product invoice (in the 'My Account' section).

    Also, it mentions this in the installer, but delete the IRIS T-6B Texan II folder from your Microsoft Flight Simulator X or Prepar3D V2/Simobjects/Airplanes/ folder before you install the new version.

    That way it's a clean install and it should work as planned.

    Thanks Smudge,
    I thought that might be the case, but I wanted to be sure before I tried it.

    Thanks in advance.

    A question before I jump in: does this model have a quick start function?

    David,

    Where do we get the info on incremental releases for the Texan? I see no new posts on the forum for quite some time.

    I just downloaded the update, and the incremental lists were in the Texan Driver - Early Access Information.pdf inside the zip.

    Easy to start.
    YoYo - Looks like you are having the same problem as me with this new release....no HUD symbology?? No functioning HUD brightness switch, no on / off switch. It was working in the prior release. While I'm at it, is there any way to sit in the instructor / rear seat? Love the static wicks on the wings. Much refined over prior Iris Texan II.

    For start I use "cntl E" and 3 switches on - Batt, Gen and Avionics Mstr.

    Hud worked for me.

    Just had to bring the brightness up.

    Many may fly and some are rewarded
    handsomely, but the wings of gold of a
    United States Naval Aviator mean more
    than flying. It is dearly bought, requires
    sacrifice to keep and represents a way of life.

    No, HUD works ok, but I talked about this hole near the HUD. I didnt notice this for example in PC-21. Beta (I hope).

    I do not understand your frustration. Easy means easy: batter on, engine cut on (+IDE), ignition on, auto start on, gen on, avionics on + HUD/lights ect. I did it without manual so I think yes - its simply easy - like in many aircrafts (military).
    Certainly, the manual describes this in more details.
