Captain Sim Announce Boeing 767 II


After weeks of teasing, Captain Sim has finally confirmed that they are working on a brand new Boeing 767.

Captain Sim teased, we begged, and now it’s official that we are getting a 767 for P3D. It appears it will be completely rebuilt much like their 757. The flight deck will be fully loaded with advanced systems such as the FMC, both LNAV and VNAV, and many more systems. With high-resolution textures, this aircraft will fit nicely in the modern sim setting. Captain Sim has also created their very own rain effects called GlaCS. Their Boeing 757 utilized TFDi’s rain effects so with this new product, we might see a change on the 757 as well.

The exterior model, as well as the virtual cabin, has also seen some love. In these previews, the Boeing 767-300ER with the Pratt&Wittney 4060 engines is highly detailed with 4K Ultra-HD texture resolution textures. With a 6+2 door configuration and a 4+4 door configuration coming soon, this new 767 from Captain Sim will be a nice change and is something the sim community needed. Numerous variants of options such as winglets will also be included at a later date. The virtual cabin has been fitted with 3D windows, with animated stewardess’ and pilots giving the virtual passenger an immersive experience. Developers confirmed that there will be hundreds of realistic animations including a brand new wing flex system to bring the already living aircraft, more alive.

Captain Sim has stated that the flight model has been completely overhauled with a new and improved one. TSS (Turbine Sound Systems) will be used for the engine sounds for every variant. Just like the 757, certain configurations will be included such as Cold&Dark and Ready for Takeoff. Which will probably be accessed through the FMC.

MK-Studios P3Dv5 Scenery Previews


After the exciting announcement from Lockheed Martin and their version 5 of Prepar3D, developers have been eager to show off their products in the new platform. It feels like it was yesterday when P3D version 4 dropped allowing 64-bit and ridding the infamous Out Of Memory error that plagued the 32-bit programs.

MK-Studios has posted some previews of their upcoming Palma De Mallorca (LEPA). Very little info has been released regarding MKS’ Palma, but judging by the screenshots, you can expect a truly surreal experience. It would be fair to assume that we can expect very similar if not the same sort of features we have seen on previous MKS products such as dynamic lighting and SODE jetways (Once SODE is compatible with P3Dv5). LM stated that they have updated their global terrain, but that won’t stop developers from going above and beyond.

Going off that, Keflavik (BIKF) is certainly no exception. MK-Studios has also posted the Iceland airport in P3Dv5 showing stunning evening lighting on and around the airport. Keflavik will most likely receive the same treatment as Palma De Mallorca (LEPA).

We have no release date or a price set for Palma De Mallorca Airport (LEPA) but you can expect a V4.5 and v5 package all for one price. MK-Studios has also announced that owners of v4 Keflavik will get a free copy for p3Dv5. Be sure to stay tuned to the MK-Studios Facebook page for the latest on their development process with these two airports. We’re not far off now.
