TorqueSim BN-2 Islander

TorqueSim BN-2 Islander

Lets get this out the way: The visuals are great, the plane works nicely and handles well.

But the immersion dies for me the second the engines start up. For one - despite having revamped sounds - the plane still does not sound like an Islander should. I used to fly on these twice a month over a period of six years, they have a very destinct sound and this ain´t it.

Secondly: The vibration animation is a nice thought, sure. But it would have needed more time. The effect causes all gauges to have the same vibrations at the same time and it just looks really, really weird.

Lastly I feel that it is a bit dishonest to publish the plane at 39,95 USD, then have a sale at 24,95 USD and promote that the plane won´t go on sale afterwards for a long time, only to permanently discount it to 34,95 USD. Sure, a lower price is ultimately better, but then maybe don´t tell everybody that it wont be discounted again any time soon...?

Anyhow, looking forward to that CJ525
