101003524 3245386578860340 8341127939701604352 O

SimToolkitPro, known as the all-in-one EFB, is now available as version 0.6. The EFB tool enables simmers to plan flights, view weather, keep track of their progress and see how other virtual pilots are getting on with their flights.

Version 0.6 has been teased for a month now and comes complete with new features, functionality and more. As described back in the start of the month, version 0.6’s main new features include compatibility with MacOS and Linux, user accounts, free cloud save back-ups and also the ability to Microsoft Flight Simulator support.

Users will be able to manage their entire fleet, produce flight plans via SimBrief an also generate routes based on set criteria. For example, if you want to fly a specific airline to a certain distance, you can find routes based on all of that information.

Along with new features, version 0.6 still contains all of the features found in previous versions, but with improvements to speed, memory usage and utilising resources.

The new website is now online, along with all the new download links to each version. SimToolKitPro, along with all their features, is free to download and use.

As a reminder, SimToolkitPro version 0.6 is optional to users, with version 0.5.83 still available to those wanting to use it. Also, your data will be backed up free to the cloud to ensure there are no issues with migration.

ChasePlane New ‘Cinematics’ Mode Feature Trailer

We shared with you a few weeks ago a sneak peek of a new Cinematics mode coming soon to ChasePlane. The concept behind this name change is to signify the more streamlined approach Parallel 42 is taking with the next build of ChasePlane. All your settings and controls for the Cinematics can be controlled in one place.

When previewing the new mode back in May, Edson said that the new features included will enable creators to have the empowerment for content creators to manage their camera settings and create fresh new takes on views for viewers and other producers.

With that in mind, Edson considered “what if we made a video using only ChasePlane logic and no human input on the shots.”

Reaching out to the team at AviationLads, they produced a new trailer made purely from ChasePlane Cinematics and no input from a human. The result of that project is above.

No mention of when this update will be made available, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, Parallel 42 did reach out to the community asking for real-world and virtual A320 pilots to reach out about beta testing the upcoming Aerosoft Airbus Immersion Pack.

Be sure to give AviationLads a follow on Facebook or a sub on YouTube. We’ll be announcing a joint contest very soon – you won’t want to miss this.
