Study Level A380 Confirmed for Prepar3D V4 and X-Plane

It’s a busy day for Matt as he’s just gone on record to confirm that he and his team of 8 will be working on a Airbus A380. Via his Twitch account, he said it will be a “study level” sim, as it’s something he has always wanted to work on. Due to the fact the aircraft is seriously complex, it won’t be for a 32-bit environment so the team will be developing it Prepar3D V4 and X-Plane.

He confirmed that he has the contacts he needs to develop the aircraft.

Outside of this information, there’s not a lot left to tell other than he’s already started working out the logic behind certain systems include “Brake to Vacate (BTV)”.

Don’t expect it to be released any time soon. This is a project of love that will be developed as long as it needs – there’s no time scale. Matt said that he’ll possibly update us on development come the end of the year, but for now, let’s take this as confirmation for an aircraft to look forward to in the future.

As for why we’re not putting this under the grill like we did for Cloud Surf Team is the fact that Matt is an established community member who has produced the fantastic ProjectFly.

In the mean time, the team will continue to develop ProjectFly and SimStall (and now the PTA tool).

REX Environment Force status update

I’m sure that many of you are wondering whatever happened to REX Environment Force just as much as we are. It has been pretty quiet around the product for a long time. Only a few updates back in December 2016 were given. These announced the products moving from a development phase to a beta testing phase. But a few hours ago REX finally gave us an update again!

In a small forum post REX announced that Environment Force has gone back to the development phase. They say that they are about 85% done with beta testing, but there are still a few things that need to be changed for both FSX and Prepar3d. Once these things are integrated and tested the product will continue testing before being integrated with its user interface.

Aerosoft Airbus A330X Wingflex Preview

Aerosoft have continued to update us with their upcoming A330X. As previously mentioned, the A330X will have wingflex, unlike their A320 family series.

As you can see from the screenshots, the untextured wing shows off just how much the wings flex.

When we get more information, we’ll let you know.
