SimToolKitPro has been updated with the “single largest performance update” to date. The new update has a big focus on performance improvements, along with a new user dashboard and a reworked live map page.
The new update from SimToolKit has a brand new map that has been enhanced for speed and efficiency. Furthermore, there are new import options for those looking to bring your flight logs from other platforms or services.
In the announcement post, Dan from SimToolKitPro said that “this is just the start” with more features and performance improvements coming soon. In particular, Dan wants to improve the user experience when flying with a VA or friends, with more interactive elements coming soon.
Currently, SimToolKitPro is on version 0.7.3, with new patches being made available through the application when there is an update.
For those who don’t know, SimToolKitPro is a freeware tool that enables you to track your flight, plan future flights, monitor your fleet and much more. It supports all major simulators and also multiple operating systems. You can see an overview (albeit an older version) here.
