Flightsim Labs A320X for P3D updated

Just shy of an hour ago, FlightSimLabs updated their A320X which recently released for P3D!

The update focuses on the VAS usage of the plane, for which it has been criticized quite a lot since release.

In the update changelog posted by Lefteris on the FSLabs forum it is said that “testers are very happy with, reporting back VAS savings that vary from 250mb up to 400mb”

Not only this, the update also brings with it a new version of FSL Spotlights.

Ultimate Traffic Live announced

It would appear that long time users of the rather old but still really nice AI traffic pack Ultimate Traffic 2 will get a replacement soon.

On the closed support forum, only accessible for registered owners of Ultimate Traffic 2, developer Steve Halpern announced that beta testers are needed.

This was posted quite some time ago, so they have probably filled the spots.

The full statement reads:

“Hi,

We have been working on an all new version of Ultimate Traffic. The next edition will be called “Ultimate Traffic Live”.

In short, it takes the best of UT2, along with many new features and a new interface, and provides a totally new product from the ground up.

This will be for the FSX and Prepar3D product line.

Watch your spam blocker to make sure any replies are not stuck there.

We hope to have more news soon. It is still very early, so keep enjoying UT2. As things get closer more info will be posted here.”

UK2000 Aberdeen Previews Released Coming September 3rd

UK2000 are often seen escaping under the radar when it comes to news regarding their products. It has appeared that UK2000 has given us a release date for their upcoming Aberdeen scenery, which is coming September 3rd.

This will be UK2000’s 24th British airport alongside others including Heathrow, Gatwick and other major airports. The airport, as always. Looks to have the key features of all UK2000 products such as optional static aircraft and animated road vehicles.

Knowing Gary I’m sure he will not fail to impress with another one of his expertly produced airports. Make sure to keep that date marked in your calendar if you are a fan of the Scottish airport.
