X-Plane SSG Newsletter September 2017 & Preview

SSG3

Supercritical Simulations Group or SSG as we call them everyday has come out with a newsletter. It covers both the new E-jets and the CRJ 700 but also their B748 Version 2.0.

E-jets
They are almost done for release with the development of the E-195. What’s left to fix are 3D model adjustments, texture mapping, ambient occlusion baking and the flight model. More preview shots are below.

B748-Version 2.0
B748-Version 2 has received a big update, parts of exterior and interior have been retextured. Cockpit displays are now made with higher resolution.

Also the FMC has received some updates:
FIX Page
IRS Align Page
Two independent FMC’s
Better Tracks representation at the ND

CRJ-700
They say in their news letter that it’s a “back burner project but progress is being made”.
The overhead, main, side instruments and upper pedestal are done for next stage which is X-plane feature PBR (Physical Based Rendering). It gives a look that you thought could never be achieved before.
Currently, work is being made on the middle pedestal.

To read the whole newsletter you can find it on this page.
