Carenado PC12 HD SimVRlabs Mod


Recommended Posts

Out of the VR Lab: Carenado PC12 HD

You wanted it, you got it! Now featuring a fully working Autopilot for VR touch controllers, working yoke, and many other custom hand-tuned manipulators optimized to work with VR touch controllers.  No more axis lines on the throttle and condition levers and those armrests. I worked very hard to make things just act and "feel" as right as they can.

Manipulators that have been tweaked to work in VR are:

-All Autopilot buttons working
-Condition Lever
-Custom ADF inner and outer knob
-Master Caution Warning button
-Master Alarm Warning Button
-Arm Rests
-Oxygen Lever
-Pressurization Knob
-CRS 1 OBS dial
-HDG dial
-CRS 2 OBS dial
-Decision Height knob
-Altimeter baro pressure knobs
-Altitude Selector knob
-Parking Brake orientation corrected and hand tuned
-Avidyne Page knob
-Avidyne zoom knob
-Instrument brightness knobs
-VR Yoke added and tuned
-Manual Override knob

New in v102:

-Custom Transponder
-Custom Audio Panel
-Passenger and Luggage doors with custom manipulators inside and outside

New in V104:

-Transponder VFR button instantly squawks 1200
-Transponder CRSR button working
-Detent vibrational feedback in throttle at the reverse throttle point so you can feel the transition
-Detents in the flaps at each marked position, so you can feel them
-Artificial horizon changed from axis to knob

New in V105:

-Window shades in the cabin are fixed.  Before, axis were reversed and the shades slid up and down on a wrist pivot (unnatural).  Now the axis is correct, and the shades slide up and down naturally as you would with your hands.  Also, vibrations were added so you can "feel" the slide.

Things that still don't work right:

The visors are a mess.  We may be able to fix those, but no promises.


Installation Instructions:

I recommend making a backup copy of your X-plane 11/Aircraft/Carenado PC12 folder.  Just rename it to something like Carenado PC12 Old, so you can easily just revert back if you need to.
Step 1. Unzip the file and you'll find 2 files.   Add both the Car_PC12_vrconfig.txt file and the Car_PC12_cockpit.obj to your Aircraft's root folder, overwrite.

Step 2.  Enjoy!

Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported Carenado update, so don't expect support from them on it. If you need help you can always ask me or just revert to your backed up folders. If you lose the old files and just want to reset everything just reinstall the aircraft.



You must be a member of the club to download any files so please go ahead and join up, otherwise you will get an error.
