TFDi Release TrueGlass

TrueGlass Official Reveal Trailer

Less than a month ago the developers from TFDi Design revealed TrueGlass. TrueGlass is their technology for making your windscreen look more realistic by being making weather affect it. Such weather can be rain, fog and ice.

As of today, TrueGlass is available for TFDi’s own Boeing 717. It works in both Prepar3d v4.0 and v4.1.

TrueGlass is free for TFDi’s own Boeing 717, and, according to their website, will be free for freeware planes (developers). For commercial use, TrueGlass will cost $2100. This does not mean you’ll suddenly have to pay an exorbitant amount of money: this is the price that TFDi asks from other developers to make use and integrate TrueGlass.

TFDi Designs Update 717 to Version 1.0.8.0

717_tfsd_8

TFDi Designs have worked tirelessly over the past 6 months to update and bring their rendition of the 717 up to the community’s standards. Since the release of the Boeing aircraft back in December 2016, TFDi have released numerous bug-fixing updates, entrusted the community to test new features and provided regular updates on their progress. It has been a challenging road for the team. With the release of version 1.0.8.0, the aircraft has received a huge number of fixes and additions, vastly improved from the original release.

The number of changes is absolutely massive, with things like T/D information, added additional functionality to the FMS, added several alerts, CO ROUTE support, support for place.bearing/distance waypoints and so much more added or changed.

Further to this, the team addressed questions such as “where is the paint kit” and “what about Prepar3D V4 support”? Both of these are described as “short term goals”, with finishing touches being added to both elements before being made public. The modelling of the exterior aircraft is being put through the final touches and a few other CTD scenarios are being fixed before the final push is made.

Once everything is complete, there will still be ongoing updates, but some of their time will be focused on future projects. What those projects are, well, we’ll find out in due time.

They also wanted to drop a quick line to say if you’ll be attending FlightSimCon (June 10th and 11th), to stop by booths 207 and 208. We’ll be there as well so we’ll be sure to get the best information.
