Aerosoft A330 Professional PBR Previews and EFB Teaser

Aerosoft A330 Pbr Efb Prepar3d (3)

We know, we know – we shared a few preview images from the Aerosoft A330 Professional just yesterday, however, some more, perhaps more relevant, previews have been shared. This time, some new previews showcasing the PBR applied to the external modelling has been showed off, along with some night lighting.

In addition to those previews, a brief teaser image of the built-in EFB has also been shown off by Mathijs Kok. The EFB is sadly powered off so we don’t get too much of a look-in at this time. It has been confirmed that the EFB will appear in the smaller Airbus aircraft developed by Aerosoft.

Finally, a brief update on the current status was shared with some issues currently on-going, in particular with the gear mechanisms. Here’s what Mr. Kok had to say:

“Well actually that is one of the things that is delaying the release. As you know the main gear of the A330 is very complex and rather unique. The only way to model this correctly is using InverseKinematics but we would need two additional contact points which simply are not there.  We have spoken abut this with Lockheed and they can’t make any promises on that. The only way out of this is to simply start inputting numbers and with loooong experiments get the right animation. Days, perhaps weeks. It’s can’t be calculated.”

As always, you can check out the full preview thread here.

While many were pleased to see the Aersoft A330 Professioal being shown off, some were less than thrilled seeing it in the same DragonAir livery nearly every time it was shown off, and quite understandably so. That changes today with a "small Friday update" from Aerosoft developer Stefan Hoffmann, where he shows off his current work on the Lufthansa-skinned A330!

Aerosoft Continue to Preview A330 Professional

Aerosoft A330 Professional Previews FSElite 6
While it may seem like Aerosoft are previewing the A330 Professional every week, most of the previews thus far have been relatively the same; the external model, usually focusing on the fuselage, gear, or engines. Today, finally, we have some variety in the previews (if cargo bays are your thing). Nothing else was provided, but we'll keep our eyes peeled
