QualityWings Q2 Update

Over on Facebook, QualityWings Simulations have updated us on the progress of their 787 aircraft. Some exciting news has emerged! They state that the 787 has now been in beta testing for six months, being tested by an expert team who have found over 600 issues that have been ironed out. The initial release of the product will include the 787-8 and -9 with the GEnx and Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engine variants. With both engine models include their own custom flight dynamics. At its current state, the 787-8 is looking to release first. With a free update coming for the -9 there after.

The aircraft will be compatible with FSX, FSX SE and P3D V4. With the FSX release version releasing first which is what we expected. The aircraft is being priced very reasonably at $69.95 being sold separately for P3D and FSX. The product will be sold through Flight1.

FSCon 2017 News: Flight1 Previewing Level-D 757-200

The team at Flight1 are showing off something very cool! A few years ago we recieved a preview from Level-D simulations teasing a 757.  Having heard nothing since then, many presumed that this project had died off. Well quite the opposite. Out of nowhere the product is in beta and being shown off at Flight Sim Con. We will have more news coming in regarding this product soon, for now sit tight.

We look forward to seeing more of this aircraft.

Update at 1648z 

  • The aircraft is 80% complete.
  • The modelling is almost done.
  • It is close, they are taking their time to make it perfect.

Toga Projects ENVTEX SP1 Beta Released

This happened a few days ago, but with FlightSimCon 2017, things have been a little backdated. Anyway, the guys from Toga Projects have released their latest service pack for ENVTEX – the texture replacement set we loved. We’ve been lucky enough to work with the developer to share progress on the project for some time now, so it’s great to see some of the feedback we gave make its way into the new service pack.

The new update brings a wealth of new features including support for Prepar3D V4, ability to change the sun and moon size, an increase in Aurora Borealis and Australis coverage and a brand new user interface. You’ll be able to see how much impact something has on performance, use the new save system and integrates PTA and PTAbsoloute.

The feature list is quite extensive to take a look. We’ll be revisiting our review at some point in line with the new features, but we assure you that it’s a great purchase.

You can download the new update via your SimMarket account or you can buy it from the same store for 21 euros. Keep Reading

Turbulent Designs Releases MBS International Airport

Turbulent Designs have released their long-anticipated MBS International Airport for both FSX and P3D. The small international airport found in Michigan is great for both commercial aviation and general aviation thanks to the numerous runways, surrounding scenery, proximity to nearby cities and  corporate jet apron.

The scenery boosts some impressive features including 60cm terrain detail, HD textures throughout, internal modelling and Turbulent Design’s “Real Flora”.

MBS International Airport is now available to download for £19.99 from the Turbulent Designs webstore.

Make sure you watch the trailer above as it shows just how detailed this airport is.

Aerosoft Release Trondheim-Vaernes V2

Aerosoft have released their latest scenery, the Norweigen airport of Trondheim-Vaernes. An airport located on the northern coast of the Scandanavian country. Boasting stunning scenery and fun approaches. Aerosoft have spared little detail in the creation of this scenery.

Some of the finest details seen in any scenery have been implemented into Trondheim. With one of Aerosoft’s newest features to boast, animated people flow. With people walking within the jetways, sadly the animation is only modelled one way. But still a very cool feature to see implemented. The scenery also boasts highly accurated modelling of the terminal and other airport buildings along with photorealistic textures. The scenery is also fully compatible with SODE. It has out of the box compatibility with FSX, FSX SE, P3D V3 and P3D V4.

You can purchase this scenery from the Aerosoft store for the price of EUR 18.10.
