  • Version 1.21 August 06, 2021

    As a separate optional upload, I've added revised and lightened prop textures.

    Please add these to your testure folder:
    Community\Cessna 208 B Grand Caravan EX - No Pod - Parorng\SimObjects\Airplanes\parorng_C208-nopod\TEXTURE

    Default livery coming on the next update, as well as dust etc, as soon as I can get this SDK working again with SU5!

  • Version 1.2 July 30, 2021

    29/07/2021 - Version 1.2 for Sim Update 5
    - Livery Converter now included by default
    - Cockpit updated to reflect SU5 new knobs etc
    - Copilot option enabled. ***If you don't want this, run the Variant.bat script and choose your registration location and copilot/no copilot***
    - Performance is default (replace with @carbonprop's one - beta 1.2 engines.cfg and flight_model.cfg are edited and included. Simply rename them to their correct names, or just copy his files over the top of these ones.
    Differences are the loading sheet (delete Crago Pod stations), the steering (adjusted by me), and the drag (reduced by 5% to .95)
    - Reduced cockpit LODs as the interior smaller new default LOD textures are pink at a distance

    ***Known Issues***
    - Main gear legs and brakes are not textured (they appear black). I have no idea why they're doing this, they look perfect in Blender! I've been trying on and off over the last month. If anyone knows let me know! I'll play around with moving them across again from the default aircraft and reanimating them to see if that helps. Expect that, if successful, in v1.3
    - Working Title G1000 GPS (0.4.0) is showing DTK 000 instead of the required track. (if installed)
    - Working Title G1000 and GX Range knob not working (if installed)

  • Version 1.1 May 27, 2021

    27/05/2021 - Version 1.1
    - Added rivets to the bottom skin
    - Prop transparency - too dark fixed
    - Prop location - fix
    - Added livery converter
    - Added registration location options and installer
    - Change rivet transparency - Feel free to use with your default Caravan! (Make a backup first!)
    - Flight model reverted to Asobo's SU4 due to compatibility issues
    - Updated weight and balance, drag and nosewheel steering angle to reflect the 90 degrees the real Caravan can do!

    28/05/2021 - Version 1.1-1
    - Livery Converter had an old non-working format. The correct one is now included in the main pack or separately.
    * If you downloaded v1.1 already, just grab the converter as a separate download.

Frequently Asked

Questions? Find your solution here.

How do I install this aircraft
How do I install this aircraft?

Simply extract and copy to your 'community folder' as normal

How do I use the livery converter?

Simply copy the entire 'C208 Asobo to C208 No Pod Livery Converter' into your working livery and run the C208.bat file

It will ask questions to confirm its location and the livery you are converting, followed by questions regarding the livery variant and registration.

At the end it will ask to generate your layout.json which I recommend running.

Restart or launch the sim and it should be there available for you. 

How do I use the registration location tool?

Find this under 'Variants'. There are three to choose from:

Default, Rear Italics, or a smaller registration on the tail. See the screenshots for examples.

Unlike the livery converter, this tool needs to be run from its Variants folder, without moving anything.

Simply run that 'Variant Changer.bat' and choose which location you would prefer!

***Currently this can only affect ALL liveries, not on a per-livery basis***

I'm working on a solution to this. It CAN be changed when the sim is running. Once you've changed it you will need to resync or reload your aircraft, restart the flight or restart the sim.

I have an issue that some textures cannot be extracted or copied from the main file (.dds) resulting in missing fuselage etc.

I have tried it with multiple third party program but it seems like to have a "too long directory" or so... anybody can help? Thanks 😊

Is it normal for the rivets to show too much?

Could you create 3-blade prop version?

My asian liveries are flying with it in reality.

Sorry. Every time l try and load this it CTD's.

Seems to effect the stock c208 aswell. till l uninstall this.

What is the No Pod Mod and what does it do?

Just downloaded version 1.21. There is a terrible texture problem. The outside is not white. I can't even describe it. The cockpit is covered in pink and lavender squares in a chessboard pattern. It actually seems to fly nice.

The new prop textures are absolutely spot on! This will now be my go-to plane for most local flights.

Hi Regarding this - !!!IMPORTANT!!!

"If you are using the WorkingTitle G1000/GX MOD you must copy and overwrite the CommonPFD_MFD.js file from the WTPATCH directory to the following location in BOTH the G1000 and GX folders.

html_ui\WorkingTitle\Pages\VCockpit\Instruments\NavSystems\Shared

If you neglect to do this the aircraft annunciator system will NOT work."

The G1000 is now part of the game and doesn't seem to have that file anymore to overwrite.

love the props now, but i did a flight test and i notice a engine surg. i pull the throttle back and it took long time for the power to come back in. am not sure if it's on my end. But overall great job. can we get a all cargo version.

when will the floats be done really want that?

I feel like the propeller is too dark and should be more invisible when at RPM.

Love the mod though!

The main file is marked 1.2 the other file is marked 1.0 but says only for those who have downloaded 1.1. Since when does a product V 1.1 supercede a 1.0 ?? It's very common with all these downloads to leave confusing older files that are no longer relevant. Maybe the moderators could investigate this aspect of all downloads.

This plane is so nice to fly. Well done mate.

Personally, I would like to see floats added to the aircraft. It be awesome flying around in the 208 with floats. However based on my personal testing with the out of the box Asobo 172 with floats, it's very hard to turn the aircraft in the water. Even with the water rudders down, turning the aircraft is not very good. It needs to have a tighter turning radius we're trying to move around the docks or in a tight spot on the lake. As far as on land is concerned, it needs to be tweaked as well or put the unit on casters, and use differential breaking to turn the aircraft on land sharper. Did a video on it but ended up scrubbing the video because of the poorer quality and it sucked. Sometimes my videos are good and sometimes they're not. Cheers to all Dion Youtude: Dionm01

This sees to not work in SU5 update. Is there a fix for this? I had an instant lockup when I tried the mod.

Bonjour . Personnellement, j'ai une préférence pour les avions à ailes hautes ce qui m'incite à utiliser tous les Cessna. Le modèle "GRANBD CARAVAN" me plait beaucoup et je dois admettre que sa nacelle, même si elle est utile dans la vraie vie, lui donnait un aspect un peu trop ventru.

Grace au superbe travail que vous avez effectué, on a maintenant le choix entre deux configurations.

Merci beaucoup de partager ce travail remarquable . J'espère faire de nombreuses heures de vol avec cet appareil qui désormais sera toujours dans mon hangar.

J'attends avec impatience le modèle amphibie que vous avez partiellement dévoilé .

Bien a vous . Yves

Great work, thank you. I know to us it is just a pod removal but you had to put in the work to make it happen. Thanks for sharing with us friend!

would it be possible to make the FTSIM soundpack work with this?

Someone please make Tip Tanks for the G36 Bonanza! If no pods are possible, we can also have Tip Tanks! I can try and help if someone wants to do it!
