FSDreamTeam Updates Basel Mulhouse Freiburg Airport to V1.3

Fsdreamteam Basel 1 3 Update (3)

After only releasing the airport a few weeks ago, FSDreamTeam has updated their Basel Mulhouse Freiburg Airport to version 1.3. The new update features all new features including a completely remodelled easyJet terminal building.

In addition, all-new 3D approach lights have been added along with 3 windsocks that are completely animated and with PBR textures.

As we mentioned before, FSDreamTeam’s rendition of the airport has been made from the ground up for Prepar3D v4 using native technologies such as PBR and dynamic lighting. The airport also comes with a few configurable complexity options, such as an airport interior with passengers. GSX Level 2 is also fully functioning, for free, at this airport.

The new update, version 1.3, can be downloaded by running the FSDT Live Update tool.

In the mean time, you can pick up FSDreamTeam’s Basel Mulhouse Freiburg Airport for the reduced rate of $19 (until the next major simulator is released).

PMDG January Info Update Thread – 737 NGXu 600/700 Expansion, 777 Update and More

Pmdg 737 Ngu P3d 10

PMDG issued a rather lengthy statement the other day on their forums with regards to various items and products. They spoke about an upcoming NGXu update, additional information on PMDG Global Ops, along with further update information on their 777X update.

Starting with the Operations Center V2, Robert Randazzo from PMDG said that version 2 of the utility will be rolled out to all users very soon. Currently, it’s only available to those who own the 737 NGXu, but an update in the original ops center will inform users that version 2 is ready to be installed. The new OC will be fundamental for the upcoming PMDG Global Ops and is also important for the installation of liveries. It is made clear that once the roll-out is complete, V1 will no longer function as before.

In more exciting news, Robert touched on the upcoming 737 NGXu 600/700 expansion pack by confirming that the plan is to release by the end of January. Beta testing is underway and that users can expect pricing to be “a bit lower than what you expect.” The expansion will include both aircraft, along with performance data for both types. For reference, the expansion pack will contain the 737-600 and 737-700 all with the various types of winglets. PMDG is also evaluating customer demand for cargo varients along with the BBJ/BBJ2 package.

It should also be noted that the PMDG NGXu Base Package will also see an update upon the release of the 600/700 expansion pack which will bring additional changes and fixes, including fine-tuning the flight model.

The PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II will also see an update soon, with a new update about to be pushed to the testing teams. The update will add the pushback tug (introduced in the 737 NGX) and also a significant change to the ground physics model. Robert gave a more detailed account of what those changes mean for users of that aircraft type.

As for the PMDG 777-200LR Base Package and the PMDG 777-300ER Expansion, the team said that there will be a major update for the product coming soon. In approximately two weeks time, the testing teams will get their hands on a new build which will include additional ground handling physics, PBR to the external modelling and more.

For those hoping for an EFB, Robert did say that the work is underway but won’t be included in this update. Interestingly, Robert also added that when the EFB data is added to the 777 series, the 777-200ER data will also get added. “Run with that as you may” he then followed up with.

The final item on the agenda is to do with the long-awaited PMDG Global Operations product. Having been shared back during FlightSimExpo 2018, the are now saying that in the coming weeks, a number of community members will be given access to the early access period of the application. The PMDG team has already decided to cherry-pick from their forums based on community reputation amongst other things. If you haven’t been selected, PMDG said that the team will widen the testing process as things progress.

Robert goes on to talk about what people can expect and that the work has taken longer than expected.

That wraps up everything that was said in the forum post. You can read the full entry on the PMDG forums here.

Thanks to James Bone [KDFW] on our Discord for the tip.
