TorqueSim BN-2T Turbine Islander - Releasing Friday!


Recommended Posts

TorqueSim and X-Aviation are excited to announce the release of the Turbine Islander this Friday (January 29th)!

We’re pleased to finally present our rendition of the BN-2T to you.

What began as a simple conversion grew into a completely new aircraft. This is the culmination of efforts spanning nearly four months, including updates to the 3d model, textures, texture mapping, FMOD sound pack, plugins, flight model, and many more small fixes and changes. If you enjoyed the BN-2, you’ll find the turbine version an absolute joy to fly!

You can see our preview flight of the aircraft here!

Many of the upgrades built for the 2T will also find their way into our BN-2 in the near future in the form of update 1.2. We very much look forward to sending that out as well.

 

Regarding pricing and release logistics:

  • The TorqueSim BN-2T Turbine Islander will be available for $34.95
  • Everyone who has purchased the BN-2B through Thursday (Jan 28, 11:59pm EST) will be eligible for promotional pricing, bringing the price to $19.95 (43% off!). A coupon code will be emailed on Friday which will be valid for 60 days.
  • A bundle will be available containing the BN-2B and BN-2T for $54.95

All prices are in USD.

 

Here are some other great screenshots showcasing the new visuals! More photos can be seen here.

Another bonus coming with the BN-2T, a military variant! 

An automatic system is in place, any livery with "MILITARY" in its name can get the military equipment to show, allowing community liveries to also make use of these extra objects :)

Hello, wonderful plane, thank you. Unfortunately, my Saitek panels are not working. The flap switch works on the autopilot panel, nothing else. It's a shame, because operating the switch for the landing lights with the mouse in flight is very cumbersome.
Best regards
Wolfgang

There are custom commands for these, they are browsable through the X-Plane command editor, starting with "afm/islander/cmd/switches/...", these can be bound to switches if you desire.

(EDIT) Had problems with my Saitek stick, works fine with my yoke.
(For me it's impossible to fly, very difficult to trim for level flight, wants to climb like rocket.) Looks nice though.

Nice Turboprop Islander! I like it more than the piston variant. Hope you update the interior walls of the piston Islander like the turboprop one. If you're considering revising sounds perhaps you may improve the ground roll and touchdown sounds, maybe too soft for me.

What a shame, with other payware manufacturers all this works without my intervention.
Best regards
