Aerosoft CRJ Dynamic Light

Matthijs gave us a preview of Prepar3d V4s Dynamic Light capabilities on the upcoming Aerosoft CRJ. It looks very nice, especially the landing light disco (though I am not sure if people in the terminal would agree with me). Check out the post for yourself to get all the latest updates on Aerosofts CRJ or check out the video above.

ENVTEX Service Pack 1 previews

TOGA Projects have given us some previews of their upcoming SP1 for ENVTEX. Of course you know ENVTEX, that amazing texture add-on with those beautiful Aurora Borealis effects. SP1 will officially add Prepar3d V4 support (although it should be noted that ENVTEX is already partly compatible) and a completely new interface. They have also been so kind to share some screenshots with us that you can find below!

Navigraph Charts Open Beta announcement

Navigraph Charts Open Beta

Navigraph have opened up their Charts Beta for all existing customers! We’ve been reporting on Navigraphs upcoming Charts update for a while now, and some of the details are already known. But now we can finally get our hands on it and start using it! The beta is meant to really test the product and iron out as many bugs as possible before the release and Navigraph encourage people taking part to give feedback on their forums. Furthermore, it should be noted that not all features are working yet. Such features include terminal procedures and/or terminal maps amongst others. But enough about that, lets see what we can start using.

Included features

Of course a lot of stuff is already working in the beta. The list of features is as follows:

  • Jeppesen Charts
  • Day and Night mode
  • Moving Maps both on enroute charts and airport diagrams
  • Flights accepting route strings
  • Pinboard for flexible organization of airport charts
  • Dynamic, interactive and fully searchable enroute charts
  • Decentralization of server structure for good responsiveness around the globe

How to get started?

To start using the Open Beta of Navigraph you have to be a customer of Navigraph Charts. This means you either need a Charts or the Ultimate package that provides Charts as well as NavData. After that, Navigraph recommend using a modern web browser with a reasonable screen size. Furthermore, there is additional software that needs to be installed to make Moving Maps work in FSX (Plane users won’t have to do this). Please note that at this point we’re unsure about compatibility with the soon to be released Prepar3d V4, but we doubt it will work. So keep that in mind if you want to start testing this product. Navigraph Customers have received an email with exact install instructions, so it’s best to just follow this!
