IVAO Future Software Close To Release

Jakarta

IVAO Public Relations Director Fares Belkhiria has posted a statement on Virtual Sky, IVAO’s magazine, regarding the release date of the three upcoming software of the multiplayer network. The three software are ATC Client Aurora, Pilot Client Altitude and Connector Artifice. The three softwares will be showcased next week-end (see details below) on the Youtube Channel of IVAO and released thereafter.

Aurora has been in the works for several months. The rendition of the software, led by several real world controllers, is designed to closely match real life depiction of airport and enroute sectors. The process of updating sector files has also been cleaned up, with data being stored on the server rather than on the controllers PC, which was the case until now. The release of Aurora will also allow IVAO staff and ATC to move on after the downturn of the IVAC v2 client. The IVAC v2 client was developed by an external company, and the contract quickly showed its limits, the IVAO teams not having access to the original code. This limited the further expansion of the product, and some of the bugs not solved, led several divisions of IVAO recommending not using the software, ultimately leading to its dismissal of the software by most virtual controllers.
