After months of teasing, DC Designs has released Concorde for FSX and Prepar3D. The supersonic passenger jet is an aviation icon and has been released to giver simmers a chance to fly the fast jet in flight simulator. The aircraft is mostly known for its record-breaking speeds across the Atlantic Ocean carrying passengers in style from London to New York. With a typical cruise speed of Mach 2.0, the aircraft could typically complete the transatlantic route in just over 3 hours and passengers would enjoy views of up to 56,000ft. A truly revolutionary aircraft that sadly now remains in the hangar.

The aircraft from DC Designs includes an extensive 3D model with full animations throughout. The famous multi-stage ‘nose droop’ has been included and users will get to enjoy a fully PBR textured aircraft (in Prepar3D v4 and v5) whilst admiring the aircraft from the outside. As for the cockpit, DC Designs has included 3D dials, configurable cockpit crew and a fully modelled passenger cabin.

The  Captain, First Officer and Engineer’s station are all operational with accurate flight modelling, a working TCAS and also custom-coded engineer’s station. The aircraft has been described as feature-rich, but not “study level”. That said, there is still plenty of systems that will need constant attention to be able to reach those supercruise capabilities.

You can buy DC Designs’ Concorde for FSX/P3D right now from the Just Flight store for £27.99.

It’s worth noting that a Microsoft Flight Simulator version is in the works and is due for release in December.

FlyTampa Sydney v2 Previews for Prepar3D

Flytampa Sydney V2 P3d (7)

FlyTampa took to Facebook earlier to announce and preview that Sydney v2 would be coming soon to Prepar3D v4.5 and above. The scenery product will expand upon the original with all-new features thanks to the improvements in the simulator technology.

Sydney Airport is the busiest in Australia handling over 42 million passengers per year from a variety of airlines all around the world. The airport itself features three runways, with the longest being just shy of 13,000ft. Located not far from the city itself, you can expect to fly near the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Sadly FlyTampa did not divulge any more details on what we can expect. However, from the screenshots, we can see there is a dramatic use of PBR usage on the ground and building textures, along with weathering effects such as puddles and water build-up. There is also an extensive use of dynamic lighting and detailed ground markings.

The Facebook post said that the airport product would be “coming very soon”, and as always, we’ll keep you informed of a release. A Microsoft Flight Simulator version will also be coming soon.

FlyTampa most recently released Copenhagen Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
