FSFX Packages / OldProp Release 747 Immersion Package

After a year of development and plenty of new technology, OldProp (as FSFX Packages are now known) has released their 747 Immersion Package.

Ripping apart the previous immersion packages, the team have created a brand new easy to use interface called Immersion Manager to apply effects, preview them and switch them on/off on the fly to suit your computer’s performance. It will now become the new standard for future Immersion Packages from the team, with more updates still to come in the future.

The 747 Immersion Package is compatible with the PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II, as well as the newly released 747-8. It includes a whole range of effects that are suited to the atmosphere and in-sim conditions. For example, water droplets will drop off realistically from the edges of your aircraft, dust will fall off your wheels upon landing and spray effects will display depending on weather and speed of aircraft. Further effects include light reflections off of fog and cloud, condensation falling off the wings and much more. All of the effects can be tested or adjusted via the Immersion Manager.

You can buy the product now for $29.00USD via the OldProp website.
