TFDi has shared on their forums a development update regarding PACX and their longed-for MD-11.


PACX development has been progressing well, and a new version is available for testers at the moment, and should be releasing soon. The first major improvement of this version is the implementation of a cabin layout within the PACX add-on. From now on, PACX users will be able to see passengers move through an overview of the cabin, and will be able to select passengers separately by clicking on the seat or on the passenger list. Cabin layours are customizable by the user, so virtually any cabin can be reproduced. Overall, the immersion of the cabin simulation will be brought yet another step foward with this update. The developer also included in their dev update links to several forum posts which explain how to add cabin layout data and how the PACX Career progress system works.

Aerosoft Douglas DC-8 Released

Douglas Dc8 (9)

Aerosoft has released their latest aircraft for Prepar3D; the Douglas DC-8. This is an aircraft that is credited with bringing long-distance air travel to the average Joe Public, and so it holds firmly a place in the history books.

The DC-8 takes our modern flight simming back to the days of pure piloting skill, and as such you won’t find an FMC or Navigation Display in this cockpit, nor is there the existence of an auto-throttle. This aircraft gives the flight crew plenty to occupy themselves with.

Aerosoft’s DC-8 simulates the DC-8-50 model, with an accurate 3D modelling of the cockpit, exterior, and all control surfaces. Said cockpit includes highly detailed instrumentation and equipment in the Captain, First Officer, as well as Flight Engineer positions.

Rain effects on the windshield are provided by TFDi’s TrueGlass technology, and the sounds throughout the aircraft are provided by Turbine Sound Studios who have a proven track record of providing an immersive experience through audio.

For a full feature list, click through to the Aerosoft store where this aircraft is available for $42.99.
