Eaglesoft have given us some more preview shots of their Citation XLS+ that is currently under development. Unfortunately the post did not state anything about a release window or technical status. But the images are definitely worth checking out regardless.
Aerosoft have just released their long awaited Rome Ciampino scenery. It’s been a fair time coming, but it’s finally released. For a price of EUR23.14 this scenery can be yours. Available from both Aerosoft and SimMarket.
Rome Ciampino airport is Rome’s second largest airport after Fiumicino. Serving both civilian and military operations. The airport is a large base for Ryanair providing a diverse route network through Europe and Africa. Although not a base for Wizzair, there is a variety of flights serving Eastern Europe from this airport.
This scenery seems to match the high quality precedent set by Aerosoft with their previous sceneries and looks to have sufficient value for money.
Expect a review from us on this scenery in the near future.
BlackBox Simulations have updated their Cessna Bird Dog to now include both the Sea Plane and the Amphibian versions of the iconic aircraft. Not only does this update include the new models, there’s also some new fixes that improve the aircraft further.
The Cessna Bird Dog was recently updated to include Prepar3D version 4, but this update also works just fine for FSX and P3Dv3.
You can read our review on the Bird Dog here.
It’s been a long time coming, but Lockheed Martin have finally release their first hotfix for P3D V4. The main reason many have been anticipating this is because it will bring the 777-300ER from PMDG into V4. The patch brings an array of features which mainly iron out a majority of bugs that have been discovered since it released a few weeks ago.
We can be sure to expect the 777-300ER any minute now as PMDG work with the patch to assure full compatibility in the sim. The release of the 777-300ER will be followed on by the NGX. It will be nice to finally have a popular short haul aircaft in the sim having been stuck with long haul for quite some time now.
To see the full list of fixes, take a look on the P3D website.
Flight Sim World released in early access on May 18th 2017. As I did with Xplane 11 before it, I will take a peek into publicly available data to see how well the game is doing a month after its release. Now it’s only fair to remind everyone we are talking about a game in early access. So these numbers are subject to change even more dramatically than normal full released game. Some may even say it’s not fair to do this yet since the game is still in Early Access. Well my response to that is the same stance I have on reviewing Early Access games. Whats out now is all your guaranteed to get. Times change and shit happens so the future is never guaranteed. Plus I firmly believe once you start charging money for something, you are officially selling a product. You will be judged as such! And I don’t show mercy with this so let’s take a look.
The team over at iBlue Yonder have released their first dedicated P3Dv4 product. The Heron’s nest installers have been updated for the new version of the sim. The team has also taken advantage of the P3DV4 dynamic night lighting for both hangers at Heron’s Nest.

The Air Hauler 2 team have released their latest early access patch (v51) and now supports P3D V4. The update also includes the new Nomad mode. This difficulty setting doesn’t allow you access to own or build new bases, you can only find jobs and missions by visiting other airports. Great for you explorers and bush pilots.
