PMDG Release 777-200LR/F for P3D V4

Less than a week after the release of the 747 into V4. We have now recieved the 777-200LR/F. Robert Randazzo made the announcement just a few minutes ago over on the PMDG forums. Please make sure that you pay attention to the installation instructions as many people got it wrong with the 747. It’s a simple process but is well detailed in the forum post.

Next up from PMDG will be the 777-300ER expansion pack. Testing for this likely will not be as long for the 777 base package, so we can most likely expect it within the next couple of days. After the 777-300ER has come out, it will be the NGX’s turn to come into P3D V4.

It’s good to see how quickly PMDG are bringing their aircraft up to P3D V4. To find out information regarding the other releases, make sure to keep an eye out on our website.

Aerosoft Release Trondheim-Vaernes V2

Aerosoft have released their latest scenery, the Norweigen airport of Trondheim-Vaernes. An airport located on the northern coast of the Scandanavian country. Boasting stunning scenery and fun approaches. Aerosoft have spared little detail in the creation of this scenery.

Some of the finest details seen in any scenery have been implemented into Trondheim. With one of Aerosoft’s newest features to boast, animated people flow. With people walking within the jetways, sadly the animation is only modelled one way. But still a very cool feature to see implemented. The scenery also boasts highly accurated modelling of the terminal and other airport buildings along with photorealistic textures. The scenery is also fully compatible with SODE. It has out of the box compatibility with FSX, FSX SE, P3D V3 and P3D V4.

You can purchase this scenery from the Aerosoft store for the price of EUR 18.10.

SimTweak’s Release PTA Tool

Matt Davies announced last week that he had bought the source code used within the very popular PTA software. With the previous developer Yuri announcing he did not wish to continue development of the tool into P3D V4, it was great news to find out that a high profile member of our niche community had picked up the challenge of continuing development into V4.

For the price of $17.99, the updated and more advanced PTA software can be yours. Available from the SimTweaks website and SimMarket. Discounts will soon be available for those that subscribe to Matt on Twitch and have supported him on Patreon. There was not quite enough time to implement this feature at release, but it will be coming soon. If you are still on P3D V3 and wish to attain the software it will be available on the SimTweaks website also. Over time, the P3D V3 and V4 versions will be merged together adding a huge array of features as time progresses.

We are now happy to announce that the product has been released and is now available on the SimTweaks website.

Madeira

They are currently getting it prepared for P3D V4 compatibility by updating the runway lights and animated approach lights. They say the update will take a couple of days still whilst they finalise compatbility but will include new features including full support for dynamic lighting. It’s nice to see developers taking advantage of the new features that have been added in P3D V4.

Napoli 

The Napoli scenery is being tested alongside the Madeira scenery currently and is having a few last issues ironed out including fixing the runway lights and editing some autogen. Once these fixes have been completed the scenery will be ready for release. Coming to FSX, FSX SE, P3D V3 and V4.

PMDG 747 P3D V4 Progress Update

PMDG’s CEO, Robert Randazzo has provided us with an update regarding the progress of the 747. He has said that in the final hours of testing a couple more bugs arose that needed to be fixed. These issues according to Randazzo were an annoyance, making the 747 a struggle to fly with it performing unpredictable actions.  This has lead to them holding off for just a little bit longer.

Randazzo claimed that he was off to get some sleep and will begin work again in the morning. With this in mind we hope to possibly see the 747 before the end of the weekend if all runs smoothly and the issues are ironed out.

You can find the full post here.

For now, why not enjoy some shots of the 747 from Jorge Moya in P3D V4 showing off the dynamic lighting?
