FSFX Announces ChasePlane Alpha 1.5 Coming Early January


With the success of FSFX Package’s Chase Plane since the alpha launch early November, the team have been hard at work ensuring that bugs have been fixed and new features have been added.

With this in mind, the team have today announced that they will be bringing Alpha 1.5 to our systems in early January, ahead of alpha 2’s intended launch. With much requested features such as TrickIR, an enhanced user interface and improved turbulence handling.

The video above shows off some of the new features which already looks incredible. Despite still in Alpha, it’s clear that FSFX Packages are taking user feedback extremely seriously and providing timely updates.

To get Alpha v1.5 as soon as it becomes available, make sure to check the “Experimental versions” checkbox in ChasePlane’s Preferences. You will be able to go back to v0.1.89 if you so desire.
