Rotate Previews MD-11 Night Lighting

Rotate Md 11 Xpl 11 (2)

Development on the Rotate MD-11 has been ongoing for a considerable period, but it would seem that development is slowly coming to an end for the team. On forums, the team shared a number of new previews of the cockpit with the interior lighting added.

According to the post, the team said that all light sources have been simulated to provide a realistic looking night scene. Furthermore, Rotate said that instrumentation and systems are now “mostly complete” and that the VNAV elements are under heavy testing.

Whilst this aircraft has been in development for a long time, it appears as though the end may finally be in sight. Their post hinted that the development phase is coming to the end, which is evidenced by the fact that they’re working on the night lighting.

You can also watch a short video trailer for the aircraft as you wait for Rotate to finally release the iconic plane for X-Plane 11.

If you want to know more about this highly anticipated XPlane airliner, feel free to head over to Rotate’s official webpage, where you will be able to learn more about it and the features that it is supposed to come with at release.

As always, we will keep you updated regarding any potential future developments on this topic.

Chrome 2021 02 19 10 28 46

Positive Control Network (POSCON) has officially opened the flood gates for anyone to now sign up the “next-generation flight simulation network.” Announced on their Discord, anyone can now sign up and join the Open Beta of POSCON. Users can now sign up and will get access to all services provided by the online network.

The post on the Discord channel confirmed that all restrictions on entry have been lifted and enable anyone to register. For those looking to join their ATC network, registrations are still being accepted. The team confirmed they expect a major onboarding in a weeks time when the ATC permissions are developed for the server.

We last wrote about POSCON back in February 2020 when closed-beta invites were about to be sent out to pilots. A lot has changed since then, but many of the core features are still available for pilots to now try and use. As mentioned, POSCON will be compatible with various flight simulators and include an advance pilot client and voice system. The entire product has been built using modern technology to provide powerful model matching, incredibly fast refresh-rates and a large number of simultaneous connections. A full list of pilot client features and the voice system is listed down below.

If you’re interested in joining the POSCON Open Beta, you can sign up now via their website. We’re working on some first look impressions and be sure to report back to you soon. You can also join the POSCON Discord to stay up-to-date.
