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.

Aerosoft DC-8 Updated, Adds FSX, FSX:SE Compatibility

Douglas Dc8 (9)

[UPDATE] FSElite reader Max has informed us that the FSX/32-bit version of this aircraft is numbered as version 1.0.0 and comes as a separate installer to the P3Dv4/64-bit version (numbered as 1.03).

Aerosoft released the Douglas DC-8 for Prepar3D v4 back in April which had fans of the classic airliner rejoicing. Fans of the DC-8 who also sit in the crossover demographic of clingers-on to the Flight Simulator X platform, though, found themselves feeling a little left out with no support for the aging 32-bit simulator.

Presumably added in the 1.03 update (though not actually mentioned in the changelog), Aerosoft has updated the aircraft now to include support for FSX and FSX: Steam Edition. This update also brings a number of changes to various systems, as well as cosmetic fixes and additions such as textures and an additional livery. See the full changelog at the end of this post.

FSX users wishing to jump behind the controls of this retro airliner are able to purchase the same product as P3Dv4 users from the Aerosoft store. The price remains unchanged, at $42.99 USD.
