Mettar Simulations Provide Dev Update #6

While it’s certainly been a while since we last reported on a Mettar Simulations Dev update, mainly due to the fact that each one was, essentially, talking about the same thing with little for us to actually talk about. Today, we’re excited to report that Mettar Sim has posted Dev update #6 that’s packed with information including a render of the upcoming A380!

First up is projectFLY. projectFLY has seen the formation of a Focus Group, which is pretty much a team that brainstorms the future of the project and report bugs to the development team while testing prerelease candidates. Two new updates have been released for the app since the last dev update, and major work has been undertaken on the X-Plane Plugin to make it more accurate and reliable. MacOS and Linux support is on the horizon with just a few last minute items to iron out, and the dispatcher is taking longer than anticipated but work is well underway.

Continuing on with projectFLY coverage, contracts have been added to the app. Contracts allow the users to outsource their aircraft to another pilot based on a bidding system. The user can specify the departure and arrival airports, the aircraft, as well as the flight number/callsign when creating a contract. Once another user has won the bid, they will fly the aircraft from its intended departure onto its destination. This sounds mightily similar to PMDG’s upcoming Global Flight Operations, so it should be interesting to see how popular it is.

The team’s recently announced acquisition of POSCON development has yielded some significant developments in the core architecture. The network will be featuring a 10hz refresh rate, which allows for increased fluidity of the network, and no more stuttering of flying aircraft you commonly see on Vatsim today. A nice image showing off the high refresh rate, and what it allows, for can be found below.

Simstall continues to be in development, and the same goes for the A380, although a preview render of the external was provided, which can be found below.

That’s all for now, and we’ll continue to keep you updated on any new pieces of information just as soon as we have them!
