BlackBox Simulation Raises Prices for All Addons

Developer BlackBox Simulations has announced it will raise the prices across their entire product line. The reason for this increase is the additional time and costs that have gone into developing their products across two sims and the recent Prepar3d V4 release. The price changes will take effect during mid-August according to the developers. An overview of the current prices and increases can be found below. The increases will not affect existing customers in in any way.

None of the products apart from the GA products (Bulldog and Birddog) are currently compatible with Prepar3d V4. The developer has been teasing that the A320 family will get a Prepar3d V4 update soon with the Widebody series to follow after that.

Blackbox Simulation Support Centre Now Open!

After the recent V0.85 update A LOT of you headed over to the BlackBox Simulation Facebook page to get technical support with certain aspects of the product, but unfortunately it appeared Facebook wasn’t an effective way of handling so Blackbox have made a Customer Support Centre.

It takes the layout of a forum where questions can be answered, or problems can be solved. BBS have learned that Facebook and 8,000 + needing technical support isn’t the most effective way of helping people, so this ‘Support Centre’ will be an effective way of helping people, so Kudos to them!

This will be a great way of handling questions about the A330/40 BBS package as it provides solutions and answers to FAQ’s in one place. It also means that problems are solved much faster additionally it stops people asking the same question over and over again.

Try out the Support Centre here and stay tuned for further BBS updates here at FSElite!
