For some time now, I’ve had the pleasure of trying out this retake on the popular Cessna 182. Updated by Mark Rooks of RSDG, I was excited to see what had been changed and improved to bring it up to standard. Given this was built on the FS2004 original, I’ll have to be honest and admit that expectations weren’t exactly high. However, I’d like to offer my apologies to Mark – he and the RSDG team have done a fine job!
This is a great take on a model that was way outdated and needed a lot of work to get it in line with what we all expect. While the models are built upon and not made from scratch, they’ve done a great job of capturing what makes the 182 Skylane such a wonderful aircraft to fly. So, what makes this such a good job?
Ease of Use
For one, I found it very easy to fly. That’s not to say that it feels unrealistically simple, though. it flies very well, and given that I have a fair amount of Cessna experience, I felt at home very quickly in the cockpit. However, the team who developed this have made sure it carries the hallmarks of the real thing. All it takes was a brief look around and I could instantly recognize all of the most important features.
From the way it manages in the sky to the kind of speeds it can hit, even right down to minor cockpit features, this does everything exactly right. Even the fact that it’s so simple to install made me like it even more. All in all, this is one of the easiest mods I’ve had the pleasure of using in some time.
Very easy to install, simple to get to grips with, and in line with the real thing – spot on!
Quality of Detail
Of course, one of the main changes this implements is a major improvement in the graphical side of things. This looks to improve textures and configurations, but it’s the graphical details that make the biggest impact.
I was very pleasantly surprised at the depth and detail that was captured by the development team. Mark has done a job of placing textures correctly, using the right kind of detail to create a look that’s certainly easy to get behind.
Overall? I’d have to heartily recommend trying this. If you used the old default FS2004 model and want to see how it’s improved with age, then come try this out!
