From what I can tell, the base VC pack hasn't been uploaded yet. But I may be wrong.

You can, but it'll run very slowly as it's not an FSX native model.

Updated the base pack link, there was a bug that would cause the gauges in the VAS version not to appear.

WOW! Thanks so much, PA! We really appreciate all the hard work you guys do! :D Although, I'm quite confused on how to set the course to the runway I want to land on. (Already read the manual, btw)

The course can be changed by using the little knob on the bottom right of the standby attitude indicator. We did this since the real A380 doesn't have a course knob.

I read about that, but how can I find out what the course is currently set to?

If you're using the VAS FMC version, make sure you have redownloaded the base pack (updated today). Then go to VAS-project.org, download and install VAS. It should work properly.
In case you're using the PA gauges version, you don't need to download anything.
The panel.cfg files are set up to work without any further edits, as long as you have selected the PA model or have VAS installed. NO EDITS ARE NEEDED

Installs fine in FSX, but it seems there's some problems..:

- Missing textures in the VC (mainly overhead)
- When flying it sounds like the AP is getting disconnected all the time
- Don't sink warning during approach/landing even if decent is -700 feet per minut
- Black screens when loading vasfmc panel(even if vasfmc gauge is installed)
- Can't see through the windscreen at night
- Warning if gear up and flaps is set to 1+F
