MK-Studios Vagar on Short (Snowy) Finals

Mk Studios Vagar Snow 1

Only a few days ago did MK-Studios reveal they have been working on Vagar airport. Today, they previewed what they called the “last” previews before release. It seems like 3D snow is all the range lately after Orbx’s recently snowy airport (ENSQ Kiruna Airport) as MK-Studios has also included the same 3D snow effects at Vagar.

The Prepar3D V4 airport will also have 3D people, SODE windsocks, specular and bump mapping on the ground polys as well as 50cm/pizel satellite coverage surrounding the airport. As you would expect now from MK-Studios, they will also include realistic precipitation effects on the ground, optimised dynamic lighting and custom mesh for all of the Faroe Islands. Heli-fans will also be pleased to know there are some custom helipads dotted around to test your skills at.

We’re surprised to see a scenery announced and released so soon after – when it’s officially ready to download, we’ll let you know. You can view the original previews on the announcement thread.

AeroG Release UV-4 eVTOL for P3Dv4

GRP Design Release La Florida Airport

It's not a big secret that there are not that many third party sceneries and addons available for the South American continent. Especially the more Southern counties are severely lacking. Developer Golden Retriever Pilot Design (GRP Design) clearly shared this sentiment as they have developed and released their second scenery, La Florida Airport (SCSE), in Chile. La Florida is a

New PFPX Update Coming Soon – Previews Included

Pfpx Update 1

Update: Fixed a minor typo in the store link below. Apologies -CM

PFPX released many years ago as a great tool to enable simmers to plan routes effectively with fuel burn, flight time, enroute weather and also advance planning like ETOPS and enroute alternatives. Over that time, it has been updated with new features and fixes. The last major update was back in 2016, and fans have been asking on the Aerosoft forums about any new features in the pipe-line.

Earlier today, Judith from the team at FlightSimSoft released a statement confirming that updates are in the work, but time has been limited due to the birth of their second daughter (our congratulations to their family.) To not let fans down, they also shared some information about the update in the works, which will hopefully release in the “next few weeks”. In fact, the plan is to release it before WorldFlight 2018.

Some new features to come (based on the below screenshots) include a new terrain view for the world map, Significant Meteorological Information (SIGMET) and the enroute wind analysis chart. This chart includes details such as GRID MORA as well as your engine out altitude.

Hopefully some more news comes from the team soon with even more information. If you don’t already own the product, you can download it from FlightSimSoft for 41.62 euros.
