Captain Sim Updates 767 Captain II to Version 0.96

2020 5 22 11 19 2 565

Captain Sim has pushed a new update for their Boeing 767-300ER which contains a few changes and fixes to the aircraft. The update also includes support for Prepar3D V5.

A new installer has been added to accomplish the task of installing the 767II into P3Dv5. Included in this, is new PBR textures, and light effects for P3Dv5. A handful of fixes have also been made. The inboard flaperon now will retract 5 degrees when the trialing edge flaps have been extended beyond 25 degrees, but not when set at 25. The flaperons will droop when flaps are set at 5 opposed to being set at 15. The engine spool down timing has been improved as well. So when you shut down after a flight, you will have a more realistic engine spool down time.

Orbx TrueEarth Washington Previews

Being someone who lives within sight of the Olympic Mountain Range, this very much so excites me. Seeing famous landmarks being recreated by such a well-known developer is spectacular and this is the perfect way to describe TrueEarth Washington State. With 66574 square miles (172428KM) of high-quality imagery with sum 940 custom modeled 3D POIs, this will be a stunning area to fly around. This is not just for P3Dv4 and V5, but is also built for X-Plane 11 unique to the platform.

TrueEarth Washington ideal scenery for any low and slow fliers. I for one will most definitely partake in some more GA flying since I will be able to see key landmarks for VFR flying. Though IFR flying with the large jets will be fantastic as well. Coming in from the south over Mt. Rainer and Mt. St. Helens will offer an absolutely stunning display of land. The scenery goes as far as Spokane to the east and to the border where we expect to find TrueEarth Oregon. Up North, it covers parts of Canada as well. Southern Vancouver Island, where I live, and a good chunk of the island is covered and will have major cityscapes as well as key buildings and landmarks. Parts of the Southern Interior have also seen some attention including the San Juan Islands. Sharp and detailed Ultra-HD textures have been placed on mountains, coastlines, and valleys offering stunning views no matter where you look or are flying. Water masking has been heavily focused on making the entire coastline, most rivers, and lakes flow perfectly with the land around them.
