TCAS/NAV suggestions

While the L-1011 didn't originially come with TCAS installed. It is a mandatory requirement for airliners to have them. For flying virtually, whether on a network or not, having a TCAS options is an essential part of flying. Please give this some consideration as it is not practical to fly with traffic and not know where they are.

In addition to this, these days there is a Navigation performance requirement for aircraft flying in RVSM airspace. This means that relying on the INS only isn't the best option. These days even aircraft with an INS system use this as a back up while the GPS is used primarily. While I know that the Default FSX GPS is used, it isn't very realistic for what you would expect to find on an L-1011. It would be nice to have an optional simple GPS unit as was commonly found on L-1011s in recent years that is actually VISIBLE in the cockpit (optional of course)

AS much as I love the old school airplanes, there has to be a sense of common sense, meaning if I were flying an aircraft like DC3 in 1954, I would only have VOR and ADF for navigation, but if I were to fly a DC3 today, I would also have a GPS since I must be able to comply with FAA airspace, unless I want to try and fly into airspace with the minimum of equipment and then be delayed because the system has to work me in or deny me altogether  depending on airspace congestion.  The point is if you look at any of the still flying L1011 or MD11 or any large multi-engine plane, you will find a FMC or FMS or GPS either incased or bolted to the dash.

We would like an FMS or a FMC or a GPS for the L1011. Cool
