Colimata Releases Concorde v2

22 Oct 2021 12:56z

Developer Colimata has released a new major version of their Concorde on X-Plane 11. The new version builds off of the original and adds a range of new features and functionality to improve the original release.

In the cockpit, Colimata has improved the instruments, improved the glass and also the overall cockpit lighting. The new version now features automatic or manual fuel pumping, along with new brake systems and failures. Outside has seen some improvements as well with better texturing, corrections to animations and additional animations. Colimata also says that this new version brings with it improved flight dynamics and better sound settings.

The news may come as a surprise to people as it’s been just two years since the original ‘early access’ release which promised to be continuously improved and updated. The last release for that version was back in December last year, with version 1.50. In order to get version 2 of the Colimata Concorde, users will need to pay an upgrade fee of around $5.00 on the X-Plane.org store.

If you don’t own the original Colimata Concorde, you can buy Concorde v2 for $54.95.
