30424927 1657904824291684 3361898904584408815 O

Developer Imaginesim has released their new version of Austin Bergstrom International Airport (KAUS) for P3Dv4. Highlighting ‘vastly improved’ performance, the result of a complete model optimization and recompile.

A post on the developers Facebook page says the airport features a big improvement in performance because the procedures are optimized for P3Dv4. According to the developer, this results in a 25 percent increase in framerate speeds over the previous P3D version.

The airport also uses high-definition building texturing and improved ground polygons. According to the developer, all of these improvements promise fluid usage even with complex airliner cockpits and high density AI coverage.

The airport can be purchased directly from the Imaginesim website for $29.99 USD. The update is free to existing KAUS P3D and FSX customers via the Imaginesim Operations Centre.

Milviz SR-71 Blackbird Exterior Preview

When we last shared a preview of the cockpit of Milviz's upcoming SR-71 Blackbird, it was met with an extremely positive response that was completely unexpected on my part. Many said that they'd either didn't know the project existed, or that they'd be buying it when it released. Today, just 17 days later, Milviz are back with another preview, this

JustSim Tease UUWW Vnukovo for P3D and X-Plane, Next Project Hinted

30743287 2017616804919750 5746244733957570560 O

Usually forgotten by scenery developers, but in no way unimportant, is the country of Russia. Not often do we see too many sceneries around that part of the world, so those looking for a quality Russian scenery to fly in and out of will likely have great surprise and delight in the announcement on Facebook that JustSim has been collaborating with Eugene Baturin from Drzewiecki Design and Digital Design to bring us a cross-platform scenery of Moscow Vnukovo UUWW.

The announcement on the JustSim Facebook group teases us with a blurred over screenshot of the finished product, with the accompanying text from Andrei Bakanov telling us that the project is now completed and in the coming days we should expect some final (less blurred) screenshots to keep us keen for the release – of which no date is specified – and that in JustSim style, this product will be released simultaneously for P3D and X-Plane.

Furthermore, Andrei tells us that the next project is already underway, hinting that the location is nearby to the Mediterranean Sea. He also goes on to say that an update isn’t far away for users of their Nice Cote d’Azur product, along with 2 other European airports (without specifying which).

We’ll be sure to post up the finished screenshots of this Russian airport as soon as they’re made available.

TOGA Projects Updates EnvUpdater

188303 14

TOGA Projects has released a new version of their EnvUpdater software that adds functionality and makes it easier for the user to keep all of their Env products up-to-date.

Writing in a post on their Facebook page, the developer says the latest update gives the EnvUpdater tool the ability to update EnvDir, Envtex, and Envshade without any additional input from the user. Previous versions of the EnvUpdater were only able to update the Environment Director (EnvDir).

If you already have Envdir installed on your computer, you can simply launch Envupdater by clicking “Check update” from the help page and the new version will be downloaded and installed automatically.
