FSExpo Streaming Woes and Remediation


For those who have been tuning in to our livestreams on Twitch throughout FSExpo today,  you may have noticed that the stream will occasionally drop out, stutter, or just go offline entirely at seemingly random times. We’re aware and have come up with a plan to fix it!

With PMDG’s big announcement taking place in less than an hour, we’d be silly to try and stream such an event with our current, unreliable setup. We think most of our connection issues are due to the shoddy WiFi at the Expo itself, so we’ll be switching to LTE to ensure greater stability and quality, as well to make sure that we won’t be taken offline if there’s a bunch of devices all streaming at once (which there’ll probably will be, given the caliber of the announcement).

That’s all for now, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We’ll be back streaming PMDG’s product reveal over on our Twitch channel when Robert Randazzo takes the stage here at 2200z, so see you then and enjoy the Expo!

Ilumium Simulation Slovenia X Previews

SLOVENIAX Previews19

Ilumium Simulation has shared a preview of their upcoming Slovenia X scenery with us. This addon is a complete rendition of the entire country and will be available for both FSX and Prepar3D. This scenery combines custom landclass and vector data, custom landclass textures, custom autogen and landmark models, photo-real inserts and default objects, with the aim of creating an identifiable and unique region, that ‘looks and feels’ Slovenian – and judging by the previews, does an excellent job of this. The team has paid special attention to geographical regions and major cities which have been covered in high detail. Furthermore, the addon provides highly accurate vector data, custom autogen and landmark models, some photo-real areas and custom (landclass) textures for all four seasons. There will be roads, bridges, overpasses, train tracks, viaducts, highway tunnels and much, much more. A full feature list can be found at the end of this post.

Slovenia X is still under development, but early access should come out in the following days for the Slovenian virtual flying community according to the developer post. Public release is scheduled for later this year. If you’re really curious about this scenery (we know we are) and don’t quite want to wait for its public release, you can try out the Croatia X Drvenik Islands Demo or give Divaca Airport (LJDI) a try – both sceneries are freeware. Or you can purchase Slovenia West Autogen for €19,50. This last addon is said to give you a small glimpse of what you can expect when Slovenia X releases and customers will only have to pay the price difference between the two sceneries.

You can find a small selection of the previews below, but make sure to check out the entire post for all screenshots as there are a lot of them.
