Black Square – Steam Gauge Overhaul – Analog Baron v0.1.0

Note: This product is an INTERIOR AND SYSTEMS OVERHAUL ONLY that makes use of the default MSFS Baron exterior visual model and requires the DELUXE or PREMIUM DELUXE version of MSFS to be installed. Improvements have been made to almost all aspects of the aircraft, except the exterior. All default Baron liveries are compatible with this product. If you only own the standard edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can download the Beechcraft Baron G58 here.
Black Square’s Analog Baron brings you a completely new interior, panel and systems with the default MSFS G58 Baron exterior model, including added winglets. This product contains both normally aspirated (B58), and pressurised (B58P) aircraft with an advanced reciprocating engine simulation, and features analogue instrumentation, swappable radio configurations and an overhauled electrical system with every circuit breaker, meter, switch and knob functioning.

Black Square’s failure system allows for persistent wear, MTBF and scheduled failures for nearly every component in the aircraft, many with multiple different failure modes. The fully 3D gauges are modelled and coded to meticulously match their real-world counterparts, with reference to real-world manuals. No piece of equipment appears in a Black Square aircraft without a real-world unit as reference.

Radio navigation systems are available from several eras of the Baron’s history, so users can fly without GPS via a Bendix KNS-81 RNAV system or with the convenience of a Garmin GTN 750 (PMS50 or TDS). Other radio equipment includes KX-155 NAV/COM radios, GNS 530, GNS 430, KR 87 ADF, KDI 572 DME, GTX 327 transponder, KFC 150 autopilot and a Bendix RDR1150XL colour weather radar.

A 100-page manual provides instruction on all equipment and 42 in-game checklists with control/instrument highlighting are included for normal and emergency procedures.

Primarily analogue instrumentation augmented with modern radio navigation equipment is still the most common aircraft panel configuration in the world. Challenge your piloting skills by flying IFR to minimums with a fully analogue panel and no GPS. You’ll be amazed at the level of skill and proficiency you can achieve to conquer such adversity and how it will translate to all your other flying. You also may find the analogue instrumentation much easier to read with the limited number of pixels available on a computer monitor, and even more so in VR.
