RUMOUR: Is the QualityWings Simulation 787 (P3Dv4) Due for Release Soon?

Fse 787 Qualitywings

The QualityWings Simulation 787 Ultimate Collection is one of the most desired after aircraft in the community right now. After the launch of the aircraft back in October 2017 for FSX, those on Prepar3D have been waiting both eagerly and patiently. However, the time waiting may soon be over. Just to clarify once again, the following is purely speculation for now.

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been numerous snippets of information regarding the upcoming release of the aircraft into simmer’s hands. Back on April 1st 2018, QualityWings made a statement saying that “The work for Service Pack 1 is largely complete and we’re currently testing all changes / bugfixes along with the P3Dv4 version of the plane.” Whilst we have been subject to waiting a long time for the aircraft, this was the first glimmer of hope for a release sooner than later.

Come forward to May and a few new tid-bits were unexpectedly released into the wild. On May 13th, FSFX Packages updated their 787 Immersion Pack via the VFXCentral software. This new version was designed to update the product with “Prepar3D v4 support”.

When you think of major airports in the UK that play a large role in the British economy, what comes to mind? London Heathrow is likely right at the top of that list, Gatwick is probably in there too, and Manchester is surely there too. I’d nearly put money on it that East Midlands is somewhere toward the bottom.
It might surprise you to learn that despite being the 13th busiest airport in the UK in 2016/2017, having handled only just over 4.5 million passengers, it plays a huge role in receiving and dispatching huge amounts of cargo every year. In fact, it serves 36 destinations spread over 10 cargo operators, just with freight alone. That’s a huge amount of cargo for a single-runway airport! So if you’re a simmer like myself who enjoys hauling your MTOW of cargo on the odd occasion (mainly because cargo doesn’t complain about those hard landings), you’ll appreciate the job that UK2000 have done in bringing their rendition of East Midlands to X-Plane.

Presentation

UK2000 have always been a name that represents quality and accuracy in sceneries for Prepar3D and FSX (and they even still develop for FS9), and so to expect the same with the X-Plane products is a natural thing. Fortunately, UK2000 doesn’t let us down by just running their sceneries through a conversion and calling it a day – they’ve quite clearly spent the time making sure every last detail is perfect for the X-Plane world. Comparing with satellite imagery, you can spend time yourself going over the airport grounds and spotting out small details like light placements, one by one, and finding that they’re exactly where you’d expect to find them.

Orbx Introduces Pearson Field (KVUO)

KVUO Pearson Field (6)

Bill Womack rejoined Orbx only a few short weeks ago, but already he has some exciting new previews of his latest airport. In his forum post, he introduces Pearson Field (KVUO). Found in the Pacific North-West, it’s very close to Portland International airport. Funnily enough Portland is another airport Bill is working on (with FlightBeam). It’s no surprise he found some time to explore the little airfield whilst researching Portland Intl. airport.

Other than some previews from Bill, there was very few other details in the forum post. Screenshot artist Iain has also posted his first previews of the airport. Hopefully his infamous ‘final shots’ wont be too far around the corner.
