Parallel 42 Releases SimFX for MSFS

The team behind the FreedomFox, Flow, and the old immersion effect packages from the FSX/P3D era has released SimFX for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The SimFX addon is arguably Parallel 42’s signature addon that brought them to prominence in the first place. A similar add-on package full of visual effects was launched for FSX and P3D back in the day, and it was the success of these add-ons that catapulted the studio to the prominence it enjoys today.

In terms of what’s included with the MSFS edition, Parallel 42 is promising extended contrails with more cloud-like voluminous textures that are illuminated differently depending on the sun’s position and angle. Simmers are also set to enjoy heat blur FX from engines and APUs, engine blast on soft and wet surfaces, wing wash, rotor wash, engine pollution, touchdown smoke, and even the earth’s natural Auroras and shooting stars.

All of these effects will apply not just to the user’s aircraft, but also those depicted in multiplayer mode and injected into the simulator via third-party software like BeyondATC, FSLTL, or vPilot.

You can control these effects from the built in panel directly within the simulator itself, including adjusting intensity and performance impact.

This build is compatible with the latest version of Microsoft Flight Simulator and also the new beta for Sim Update 15. Additional effects are activated if you’re using the new Sim Update 15, which will of course come to everyone once it’s out in full.

The addon is expected to be compatible with almost all third-party addon aircraft, although if you’re not sure what is and isn’t covered, Parallel 42 has offered a comprehensive guide over on their website, along with a handy Aurora tracker.

You can buy your copy from the Parallel 42 store for $25.00 USD.
