Flight Simulation Product Previews

New Previews of ShortFinal Design ‘SFD’ Global

Shortfinal Designs Sfd Global X Plane 11 (7)

ShortFinalDesign is known for his airport work on X-Plane, but his latest project will span the whole Globe. Similar to that of Orbx Global on FSX/P3D, SFD Global will apply a brand new set of global textures to the entire X-Plane world. On Facebook, ShortFinalDesign shared some new previews with the community.

Most likely in response to LTD releasing Global Earth on X-Plane, but the developer has clarified that “terrain textures are independent of the autogen”. This was then followed up with confirmation that terrain textures work globally with independent autogen and are not limited to individual regions.

You can view the post on Facebook for the original details. You could also check out previous previews for SFD Global on X-Plane.

ShortFinal Design’s most recent release was Munich, which you may want to check out.

Aerosoft Previews 330 Professional Wing Flex

The last previews of the Aerosoft 330 Professional were that of the newly recorded sounds for the aircraft. Provided by TSS, the sounds were to give a static representation of what we could expect. In a new video shared by Aerosoft, we can now see that the model will indeed have wing flex.

Aerosoft are often asked if it would and multiple times they confirmed. The video above is confirmation of the fact the aircraft will indeed have wing flex.

From the post, this is what Mathijs has to say.

“Not the best vid as it is done to test something but just to silence people who feel we can’t do floppy wings. The algorithm is pretty cool, it more than the standard animation.”
