Parallel 42 Updates 717 Immersion Pack

Parallel 42 717 Immersion P3 (2)

Whilst Parallel 42 may be focused on The Skypark as of late, the team hasn’t forgotten about Prepar3D users. We know that the 777 Immersion pack is being updated for the recent updates to the PMDG line, but in a surprise announcement today, the 717 Immersion pack has been update for free and includes all-new lighting technology.

The 717 Immersion pack is designed for the TFDi Design 717 and enhances the aircraft by adding numerous visual effect across the aircraft. The small size of the 717 means that the effects added are more noticeable than before and each effect has been correctly made for both PBR and non-PBR materials. The new update adds Prepar3D v5 compatibility, but also enhanced lighting tech.

The new lighting technology adds the new Xenon strobes and also new landing, taxi, flood, nacelle, nav lighting and more. All of the lighting is dynamic and also includes volumetric lighting, which is really noticeable during hours of darkness or in low visibility.


Parallel 42 has released the new update for the 717 Immersion pack free of charge and can be updated through Orbx Central. If you don’t already own it, you can buy the 717 Immersion pack now from OrbxDirect for $28.00 AUD (approximately US$21.96 | €18,06 | £15.70). Likewise, the TFDi Design 717 is also on OrbxDirect (on sale, no less) for $60.89 AUD (approximately US$47.76 | €39,28 | £34.14).
