FSFX Compatibility update Prepar3d V4

ChasePlane

Good news for everyone using ChasePlane! FSFX Packages, the developer of this immensely popular camera addon, have stated that it will be compatible with the soon to be released Prepar3d V4. ChasePlane owners will be able to get going with this tool right away as, according to a post on their site. Some features may not be working yet, but FSFX are confident they’ll be able to fix these pretty soon. Perhaps already as soon as this week, according to their post.

PreciptFX

PrecipitFX will be compatible with P3DV4 pretty soon after release, and FSFX is aiming for a compatible release this week. Due to Prepar3ds new weather effects, PreciptFX enabled rain- and snowparticles won’t work.

FSFX Immersion

FSFX have developed multiple immersion packages for several aircraft, but the future of these addons remains yet to be seen. They stated that they might look at compatibility but can’t say anything as of yet since all the aircraft these immersion packages are made for are not available yet.

Developer Month: FSFX Packages Interview

Welcome to the FSElite Developer Month. Our theme this year is about delivering for the community and part of that is delivering great content to you all. As part of our commitment to you all, we’re pleased to announced Developer Month – a month themed solely around celebrating our great development community. Over the course of March, you’ll be treated to some behind the scene looks at some of our favourite developers, stories from the FSElite team, exclusive interviews and more.

Keven from FSFX Packages was kind enough to stop by and give us some insight into the development process of Chase Plane, how they’re finding the alpha testing and what we can expect in the future. Of course, you can check our all kinds of coverage from their products from us – including, Q400 Immersion Package review and our Chase Plane alpha 1 preview.

There’s loads of great stuff from FSFX Packages below, so I won’t hold you up any longer. Enjoy!

Tell us a little about yourselves and how you got started?
In 2006, we started experimenting with visual effects on FSX, right after the release. The platform offered us new tools and development processes and being a curious person myself, I created the first iteration what would be the foundation of our Immersion Packages today. In 2014 we decided to test the market with PrecipitFX and started teasing for 777 Immersion. It was an instant success, leading us to today. We are now the reference when it comes to visual effects in the Flight Sim Community.

Majestic’s Dash 8 Q400 is by far my favourite aircraft. It’s sophisticated, very in depth, performs amazing, provides a fun challenge when flying it and it looks really amazing. However, the guys over at FSFX Packages thought these looks could get even better, and decided to upgrade this already amazing plane with one of their famous immersion packages. So is this immersion package an absolute must have for everyone flying around in Majestic’s prop-liner? Let’s find out!
