New with v1.2

New 4K textures. Full resolution to clear text and better legibility. Nvidia native DDS format lossless, without compression. Quickest format for X-Plane!

Improved analog version especially for night flight. All the lights in the cockpit controls are perfectly matched to the lighting controls, allowing the intensity of all indicators to be adjusted.

Modular zips. All sections can be downloaded separately. 

Now with new Airfoils and new flaps parameters, lift coefficient (CL) drag coefficient(CD) and pitching moment (CM) revised and improved.

Airfoils tested using XFLR5 and exported and scaled with Polar2Afl. Airfoils data are much more accurate than the default B58 uses. Thanks to Zeta (Alejandro Zuluaga) for this work!

What is an Airfoil: An airplane's wing has a special shape called an airfoil. The airfoil is shaped so that the air traveling over the top of the wing travels farther and faster than the air traveling below the wing. ... According to the Bernoulli Principle, this pressure differential pushes the airplane upward, giving it lift.

 

Improvements over the default version:

Avitab integration. New Avitab display, now more realistic with dirt.

I have taken the opportunity to solve all the flight problems of this model also adding the improvements of MGouge version. 

I have added and reviewed one by one all the flight parameters in Plane Maker so that the flight mode is fully compatible with the new Austin flight mode.

I have designed two new winglets for the wings of our favorite plane. I hope you like them because it gives a new, much more modern design. There is a lot of work with Blender!

I have also designed a new interior with a new cabin, with new materials. Now the seats look better.

The pilots' seats have a new finish and look more like the real ones.

The cabin overhead lights in the passenger area are now real. They activate automatically when there is little light and turn off during the day.

The cockpit also includes new improvements. Now everything is made of steel and the materials better reflect light. I have added new controls to the altitude and artificial horizon indicators so that they can be selected from the co-pilot area. Now the Prop Amps gauge works again! Speed indicator: now there is corelation between analog and digital speed indicator with concern to the yellow ark. New compass with more legibility.

Better taxi and landing lights. 

Two versions, with and without winglets into the same pack.

New prop disc with more realistic graphics.

FSEconomy alias added

3jCabin-sounds with some optimized ranges

Checklist included in clist format for XChecklist plugin.

And more and more...

 

 

This version has a lot of improvements to the flight system, you can download the list:

SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR VR  

I have improved all the clickable areas of the cockpit adjusting them better to the area of textures. Before they were very forward and now they are right where they should be. Now it is handled perfectly from VR.

Speaking of VR, everything has been tested in Virtual Reality and it must be said that the new B58 is extremely good in FPS. By the way, I have touched up the vrconfig file so that the points of view of the pilot, co-pilot and passengers are the best possible.

 

Some tips:

About liveries you can use all of the B58 standard designs, because this Baron 58 Enhanced is 100% compatible with Laminar B58.

 

And more (optional plugins recommended):

Tablet and Avitab integration (it's necessary Avitab plugin)

3jcabin-sounds package ready to fly with B58 (It's necessary 3jcabin-sounds plugin)

X-RAAS config file made and tested. (It's necessary X-RAAS plugin)

Checklist in format Clist.txt (It's necessary Xchecklist plugin)

I recommend the XPrealistic payware plugin. 

 

How to install the B58 Enhanced:

This mod needs the original B58 from Laminar Research to work properly.

You can download only the section that you like and unzip it separately overwriting the necessary files of the original Baron B58

All files .zip have to be unziped into the root folder of your B58 aircraft

Happy flights!
