Supercritical Simulations Group Updates E-Jets and B 747-8 Anniversary Edition

SSG B748 V223

Aircraft developer Supercritical Simulations Group has updated their E-Jets and B 747-8 Anniversary Edition aircraft on X-Plane 11. The updates for both of the aircraft were released over the past few days and can be downloaded and applied to your aircraft now.

Starting with the E-Jets, and perhaps the most significant of the two updates, the changelog indicates various improvements with the aircraft. The PDF and HSI have both been improved, whilst the COM radios now enable .833mhz capability. Furthermore, the update has improved the flight dynamics for X-Plane 11.50 users, along with visual improvements to the cockpit itself. There have also been fixes to the VNAV system, small graphical errors on the MCDU and also with some SID information disappearing after take off. Finally, VR users will appreciate the fact the aircraft is now “VR friendly”.

The Boeing 747-8 Anniversary Edition from SSG has seen a smaller update. Three fixes have been issued with the new update including a fix to the “Direct To” function, the ND map flickering during pushback and also an increase to the glossiness of the external model on the 747-8i.

As mentioned, all of the updates are now available from the store and can be download and installed.
