Blue Sky Flight Simulations Spitfire Mk. XIV Update

Originally for the ill-fated Flight Sim World, the Blue Sky FS Spitfire Mk. XIV was a great little aircraft in the sim when Shane gave it a first look. Since the closure of FSW, the team at Blue Sky FS have been busy porting over the aircraft to P3Dv4.

One of the biggest challenges for the team were convering the PBR rendered textures of FSW into non-PBR rendered (although that may not be the case for very long). As you can see from the shots below, the team have done a good job at conveying the realistic look with the current limites of P3Dv4. In addition to texturing, some animation errors need fixing and flight modelling needs some work on.

What’s very cool is that the team at Blue Sky FS will (hopefully) be streaming parts of the development process so you can see how the magic happens.

Right now, their plan is to release by the end of September and are also in talks with multiple publishing partners to release the aircraft to. This is in addition to their own self-publishing website.
