  1. Today started the "Salon du Bourget" in Paris-Le Bourget (near Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport). There are some professional days before the public can access it this WE, but you can still have a good look at the variety of aeroplanes presented, be helis, jets, sailplanes, electric planes, military or civil/ commercial stuff.. Enjoy from the official channel : SOURCE INFO CHANNEL LINK : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkrdQVJKr1Agdw5AQwvTKCw
  2. We heard that there was something going on under the carpet of some members of TSL, now the information is finally out ! It will come exclusive to OrbX Direct and will be a tool about "having something to do in our sims", with persistence, economy, jobs, logs... I received it in the letter from OrbX : The video : SOURCE INFO NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : The Skypark - Orbx ORBXDIRECT.COM One World, Unlimited Adventure. Flight simulation can be pretty dull without a feeling of purpose. Even the most adventurous simmers can give in to flying only familiar routes. As a pilot in The Skypark, you can plot a course of worldwide adventures and financial success. Wonder where you'll go first? Our virtual dispatcher Ivana Fly can help, your only job is to fly!
  3. People, we have virtually no infos on what's gonna be "in the box" of this sim. Like the TBM in the trailer/ screenshots has G1000 instead of G3000 in the real plane. Photogrammetry is a great technic but has a lot of flaws when it come to animations. Will it be about streamed textures/ mesh or will it cost terabytes of SSDs, what kind of flight model are they aiming for, what about how the weather is injected from IRL into the sim, can we have all stuff like turbulences, windsheers, vortices etc, and a decent offroad ground handling/ bush sensations, will planes break/ have persistance, etc ! And even more important for us : what about modding, DLCs/ addons and so on ? Will it be a locked platform or not ? About the fact that the link says "xBox and PC", I'm not sure this very sim will be announced on the actual console generation ie it doesn't appear on the Gamepasses anywhere yet, I'd bet more on the next one eventually. But it also just could be a PC only title sorted in the xBox companion app... As there are 3 topics and I posted mine before this one appeared on TSL, here's a quote : Please head on to the Insider page if you are interrested in the project
  4. The new website is just up and running. Not much in there passed some pictures : Graphics look amazing, crispy, lights are off the charts, clouds look great... PBR of course, partnered with satellites companies...Oh, a new Ms flight sim with cockpits in the planes And LIVING WILDLIFE GUYS ! I'm wondering what's the catch now 😛 You also can sign in as an Insider for the incoming product : Home - Microsoft Flight Simulator FSI.MICROSOFTSTUDIOS.COM
  5. Just aired from the E3 Microsoft xBox conference 2019 What is it, I don't know, BUT KEEP IN MIND it has been announced at an xBox conference, thus may be a console product first ?? IDK... Their website isn't even up yet SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : xbox.com/flightsimulator
  6. My longest title so far I'm pretty sure ! So I received an email from Deadstick Bush Flight Sim today that invites me to fill a form for the incoming closed beta phase, which is before the Early Access phase on Steam obviously. I asked if it can be shared and guess what : yes ! I must say first that the team is looking for motivated testers, that can report, critic, share ideas etc so the team/ the project can evolve in the right direction with our help. Whether you are a gamer or a simmer, you play with an xBox controller or with a fully fleshed cockpit, there will be plenty to test ! I cannot say if there will be a NDA but I'm trying to get the intell from Chris or any member of the tram as quick as possible to fill that gap. Note that you will need a Discord account, and join the Deadstick channel, and it would be nice, even if you do not intend to participate, that you add the title on your Steam wishlist : it'll help the team on referencing. The form link : Deadstick - Closed Beta Interest Sign-Up DOCS.GOOGLE.COM If you are interested in helping test pre-release versions of Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator ahead of the launch please fill in your details below. Pilots will need to be part of our Deadstick Discord community to be eligible to be picked, so if you aren't already please head over to our server at https://discord.gg/deadstick SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : http://deadsticksimulator.com/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.facebook.com/DeadstickSimulator/
  7. I was quite hopeful when the team changed the formula to the Live version which is less work for them, but since Edson was unemployed, there was no more mentions of the show anymore. Just Take-offs and landings on YT, which I'm afraid does not sound like an audience catcher I hope both the guys are doing fine now, but hey, we all have downside moments and need time then. Just my best wishes to them for those moments... That said, it would be nice to have news sometimes from the boys' choices about the show 😉
  8. Chris and his team just posted on Twitter about the road to their Early Access release Q2 2019. Here is the Steam article, the interesting parts are in bold here : Ok now I'm excited 😛
  9. Interresting, because all "signs" from LM were trending towards a v5 for the beginning of this year, and yet voilà : v4.5 on tracks apparently !
  10. I'm puzzled here, I thought iBlueYonder was "back in OrbX", right ? So it's a Flightbeam product edited by iBlueYonder, which is published by OrbX ??
  11. Ok, I have "some" problems with those guys' sceneries... They have also made Monument Valley (sold by OrbX), Mattherhorn 3D park and the recent Lukla/ Everest park. I have been able to test both of them, and so far, I find that they are nice sceneries, but pretty inacurate ! There are parkings/ rwy wrongly numbered/ labelled, the houses / some roads etc are totally not at the "real" place (ver visible on Lukla, some important buildings are missing, some are totally at the xwrong place, the parking have the wrong numbers, the taxiway is the wrong size etc ! They even created some stuff that is absolutely not there IRL (I just compared satellite picctures), and the textures for some stuff is awful (Monument Valley for XP is really bad, even more if you can compare with the P3D equivalent on IOrbX ! ). Don't get me wrong : the work is impressive etc, but as sold sceneries, do not hope for any exactitude in there, cause there is none. So Good value will depend on what you wait for, as long as you don't compare to the real thing (or to a good OrbX work !)...
  12. After a wait, Aerofly FS 2 just released their first chopper ! Oh and you don't know the best : it's FREE ! Don't be fooled, it's not "just a nice model", the physics that goes on this one are said to be the best you can find out there now ! Just read the quotes. It's nice to have a chopper, but it's even better with helipads : Changelog  there SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.aerofly.com/community/forum/index.php?thread/13736-aerofly-fs2-robinson-r22-helicopter-releasing-today-on-steam/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://steamcommunity.com/games/434030/announcements/detail/1702820767454589668
  13. Well guys, just to break the party, new clouds in XP are still due in Q3 / 4 2019. But...
  14. Well time for the last update ! I'm surprised Ivana didn't get this one ! I guess it's time for compatibility check once again : Full patch note : SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://fselite.net/news/fselite-exclusive-p3d-v4-4-releasing-november-28th-pbr-confirmed/
