FSFX Packages Current State of Affairs

19092914 642507942618553 3836547679430645984 O 1140×600

Two days ago (sorry for the delay), FSFX Packages released a public statement which contained some interesting and enlightening information about their future endeavours. The two main topics were (obviously) Chaseplane and the Immersion packages.

Chaseplane:

  • Version 1.0 will be coming a bit later than expected due to major changes in the flight simulation community such as the advent of Prepar3D V4. The team has been working hard to fix the bugs here and there and haven’t had the time to delve on the user manual and interactive tutorials.
  • Chaseplane will enter Beta next week as it gets closer to the first full release of version 1.0.
  • FSFX Packages is committed to releasing a perfect product so do not expect a hasty and careless release.

Immersion packages:

  • Immersion packages are not yet compatible with V4 as a new .DLL must be created. There are no estimate on the release for V4.
  • PrecipitFX is compatbile with V4.
  • TFDi 717 Immersion is coming; no ETA.
  • P’DG 747 is in the works, but do not expect it anytime soon as the developer team will have to find a new way to incorporate their effects into the 747.

Drzewiecki Design New York Airports V2 Update!

18319077 1941360442743824 8864240761085587827 O

Drzewiecki Design have just released an update for their upcoming New York Airports V2. In a Facebook post earlier today, the developer group has confirmed that KCDW, KLDJ and KTEB are entirely finished, whereas KLGA, KEWR and KJFK are respectively 80%, 60% and 30% done. Of course, the bigger and more complex airports are harder to finish, but this already seems very promising from the talented developers that brought us Washington D.C.

They claim that everything should be optimized so well that it cannot be compared to V1 and that the lightning is being done from scratch. New York Airports V2 will be released as two separate products and previous owners of V1 will obviously get a fair discount on their purchase.
