PILOT’S! Release FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation and FS Global 2018

PILOT’S have released their latest products in their FS Global franchise. FS Global products are a fully Orbx FTX compatible product that will add mesh scenery data for the whole world. This time, you’ll be able to fully download the software and bring it directly into your sim. By enhancing mesh detail, you’ll be able to see mountains for what they are with sharp edges and more.

As for the two products, there’s a few differences between the two.

FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation

First and foremost, this is the most detailed of the two products. FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation will add 80GB of data into the sim, which is over 500 times the default amount. The data is the most up to date mesh data available for a flight sim. Despite the additional detail, it’s still friendly on frame rates and has minimal VAS impact. The resolution is so detailed that even up to 1m of detail is included. Even more surprising is the fact that Bathymetry mesh has been created for Prepar3D, meaning you can now explore the depths of the ocean like never before (yes we know it’s a flight sim).

You can purchase FS Global Ultimate – Next Generation from The Flight Sim Store. Keep Reading

FSElite Exclusive: PILOT’S! Publishing Madrid, Alicante and Almeria

Not only did PILOT’S! give us the low-down for their Boeing 314 Clipper aircraft, they also informed us about their re-entry into specific scenery development as well.

Madrid (LEMD) is currently being developed by Latinwings and will be entering an intense beta testing process very soon. Latinwings are in talks with PILOT’S! to publish the scenery outside of Aerosoft and more details will be shared soon.

Further to this, it was also confirmed to FSElite that both Alicant and Almeria will be developed and created by an internal PILOT’S! team. Both airports will be revealed in a more official capacity in the coming weeks.

Spanish airports are certainly receiving a lot of attention this year, which is fantastic news for those who love flying in Europe.

We’ll be back with some exclusive screenshots in the near future.

FSElite Exclusive: PILOT’S! Boeing 314 Clipper Screenshots and New Information

During FlightSimCon, myself and Jordan got the chance to talk to Stefan, the C.E.O of PILOT’S!. He was able to talk to us about the aircraft, how it will be one of the most unique aircraft created for the sim and showed us a glimpse into the detail that will be available. Since then, we’ve acquired some new shots showing off the external model and the detail it will be delivered with.

Originally, PILOT’S! developed the aircraft for FS9, but this new version will bring a whole range of features. There will be new and enhanced flight physics, brand new animations and an incredible detailed 3D model – including the interior. Furthermore, fans of FSFX Packages will be pleased to hear they will be handling the special effects of the aircraft and will come included with the aircraft. Although no exact dates were given, we can expect it later this year for FSX and P3D V4. We presume other versions of P3D will be included, but so far we don’t have that information.

The aircraft has a pretty interesting history. It is described as a “long range flying boat” and was used in the 1940s to do transoceanic routes in style. With a maximum speed of around 210mph, it took 19 hours to fly from San Francisco to Honolulu – a journey that now takes less than 7 hours.

I for one will be interested to see who takes the Boeing 314 Clipper for Vatsim’s Bi-annual Cross the Pond event!

In addition to this, we also have some other exclusive PILOT’S! news – this time about some upcoming scenery.
