Advanced Flight Modeling Issues Update (Again) For M20 Collection

M20TN 13

No, you’re not having deja vu – though just yesterday we reported that Advanced Flight Modeling had updated their M20 Collection product with a v2.2.1 update.

It seems that after this update went out, users stumbled on a bug surrounding the G1000 on the Ovation 3, and a cosmetic bug with some text on the M20TN. As a result, AFM has issued a hotfix as v2.2.2 to correct these issues.

Updating to the new hotfix is the same process as the recent update, so users who updated then should follow the same process. For anyone who has not yet updated, your options can be found on the developer’s website.

New Exterior Previews Shown of HotStart TBM-900

A few weeks ago we reported on the announcement of a new TBM-900 by a fresh name to the X-Plane development world, HotStart.

Since then, the first official previews of the exterior model have been shown off over on the X-Pilot forums. These previews came from Goran of Leading Edge Simulations, who is working on the modelling in this project. With a proven track record of high quality, most notably the Saab 340A that was recently updated to X-Plane 11 compatibility, the expectations were high.
As expected, the modelling is simply stunning. Don’t take my word for it though – check out the images below.

Something to keep in mind here also is that the systems on this project are being developed by none other than Totoritko – the man behind the essential X-Plane plugin, BetterPushback.

It goes without saying, that this project with two high respected developers is something that the whole X-Plane community is excited for and keeping an eye on. For that reason, we’ll be following this with a close eye too.
