[AIRCRAFT] DC-10-10 Beta Pack

Finally, after 2.5 years of on and off work on this, I have made my DC-10-10s available for YSFlight with the full range of schemes of this variant. Performance in game has also been tweaked to be less buggy, and a full HD cockpit is also included in this update! The next update this pack will receive will be the full pack, including the -30s, -40s and -15s, though when that will happen is still a big question mark...

In the meantime, please enjoy flying these trijets! :)
READ IF YOU WANT TO RELEASE REPAINTSShow
If you wish to release a repaint, please PM me a screenshot and a .blend or .dnm file of your completed repaint. I will assess its quality and get back to you as soon as I can. Generally what I look out for:
1) No shadowing issues
2) Proper dnm tree
3) Proper naming of parts
Once these are satisfied, I will give you the go ahead so long as the paint scheme looks good and you credit me for the original model.

Hey guys,
Since I've enlisted, I've really had no time to work on mods consistently. As such, I would like to release a small beta pack of my DC-10s, which currently only include the early DC-10-10, since this may now take forever to complete. A blank scheme and an American Airlines scheme (which happens to be N101AA, the first DC-10) are available for now, but I will expand it to the full range once I have finished up the other variants and the cockpit.
I have released these so that you all can finally enjoy flying these HD models (~60k vertices each). I would also like to gain feedback regarding the work I have done on it so far, so feel free to offer criticism regarding the flight performance and the external models.
The aircraft in this pack do not have a working cockpit and still need some touch up, but I may allow repaints on a case by case basis.

A nice pack of DC-10's...but the "blank" model just gives me a visual error. I installed everything correctly, but it gives me a visual error. The rest work, but my PC is underpowered. Maybe the "User" file for the blank model could be fixed?

Also, at this point, it sounds like I'm nitpicking, but the undercarriage seems slightly off.. as in the landing gear looks like they've been ripped straight from an L1011. There are three sets of wheels on the main gear, seems like a detail you overlooked.

If you're referring to the center gear, the variant -10 did not have that. The variants -30 and -40 did though. This pack only has the -10s.

Oh. Sorry for that. I only ever see the -30's and -40's.

Ahh no worries man! The -30 and the -40 were around for a lot longer, especially as Northwest Airlines had a sizeable fleet of them. AA flew the -10 around here in the States until about 2002, but NW flew its -30s and -40s for a lot longer. Of course Fedex is the carrier with the most DC-10s operated, all freighters or converted freighters of course.

I found out that YSFlight runs a lot better with this model by running it in Direct3D mode. My PC is still underpowered. As I said before, a nice pack of DC-10's.
