GSX Level 2 Preview Video

We wrote about our first impressions on the brand new GSX Level 2 from FSDreamteam, but there were few assets to use to showcase it off to you. Today, the team have released a short video demonstrating the new extension to GSX.

The 3 minute clip shows you the new SODE jetways at all kinds of airports, as well as walking passengers through the jetways, out of the passenger buses and up the aircraft steps.

You can read out impressions here. It’s due in beta at the end of this month, and hopefully a release not too far after it.

REX Simulation “Definitely” Planning to Develop for X-Plane

In our most recent Flight Sim Expo 2018 developer interview, we sat down with Sky Force 3D developer REX Simulation. Whilst the majority of the interview centered around Sky Force and their new product: Environment Force, we couldn’t miss the chance to ask about other platforms for the team, including X-Plane.

When asked, Reed, Managing Partner at REX, answered with “that’s definitely the plan”.

“We’ve been investigating X-Plane for a while. It is a totally different platform. The current technology is built around an SDK, so we had to go out of that. With X-Plane, it’s going to take a little more time. But I think we’re going to get there.” 

When talking about time scales, Reed had this to say: “Not sure if it will be this year or not, but we hope so. A lot of it depends on how well our new products are received and how they preform. Those products are our primary focus right now”.

Tim Fuchs, Managing Partner at REX, also added that “feasibility is there for what we’re doing. That’s ‘step-1’ and it’s passed!”.

Interest and developers developing for X-Plane continues to grow. When we hear anymore news, we’ll be there to cover it. You can watch the full interview here.
