    QualityWings Ultimate 146 Updated to v1.5
     
    Over on their Facebook page, QualityWings Simulations has announced that they’ve pushed out a v1.5 update for their Ultimate 146 for FSX and Prepar3D v4.
    This update comes in response to a string of bugs, issues and inaccuracies reported on the QualityWings Simulations forum by customers. Version 1.5 brings along crash to desktop fixes, improved aircraft behaviour to bring it closer to its real-world counterpart, an issue where gear and flaps would occasionally not retract and more which you can view in the complete changelog towards the end of this article.
    Also, at the end of this article, you’ll find instructions for existing customers to update their product.
    If you don’t already own the QualityWings Simulations Ultimate 146, you can grab a hold of it on Flight1.com for a price of $19.95 (Incl. VAT) for Prepar3D v4 or for FSX/SE also on Flight1.com for the same price.

    Quito (SEQM) Announced by Flightbeam Studios
     
    Flightbeam Studios just posted a Facebook update to inform the community that, in conjunction with Dreamflight, they’re almost ready to release SEQM airport, in Quito, Ecuador!
     
    This unique airport is located at an elevation of 7,874 feet, and as the busiest airport in Ecuador, will offer you many interesting new routes (and for me, it’s another great reason to explore Orbx’s OpenLC South America).  American, Delta, JetBlue, Joon, KLM, and United are the airlines based outside of South America that service the airport, and it’s also a relatively busy cargo hub, as it receives flights from Atlas, Cargolux, Etihad Cargo, Emirates SkyCargo, FedEx, KLM Cargo, and UPS.  As the runway is over 13,000 feet long, it’s quite accommodating.
    Dreamflight is developing the airport, as an exclusive product for, and using the branding of, Flightbeam.  Flightbeam is continuing work on their other projects, including Wellington, Auckland, and InsectFlow.
    No exact release date was given, but they say it’s ‘coming soon’ – so we hope to hear more about it very shortly!  Stay tuned to FSElite for more and you can also follow the developer’s Facebook page as well.

    KPDX Gets New Features + Fixes
                  KPDX Updated!
    Version 1.1 adds new content and fixes a couple bugs
    Today, we released a new update for KPDX for P3Dv4 that adds some new stuff and fixes a couple of minor glitches.
    What's New?
    The airport fire station complex and fuel tanks have been added to the NW corner of the airport Dynamic SODE-driven windsocks with custom animations have been added (how did we miss that?) A custom model of the Glenn Jackson (I-205) bridge has been added, with night lighting and custom traffic flow Lots more autogen trees added to the photoreal area of North Portland In addition, we fixed a few hatch marks on the ground poly that got somehow bumped out of place before the final export, and added the trees back into an autogen tile for Orbx KVUO that overlapped with KPDX.
    How do I get the update?
    It couldn't be simpler. If you're one of the many who already own KPDX, launch the Flightbeam Manager and click the KPDX tab. There will be a link to follow to auto-update your version.

    If you don't have KPDX yet, the changes are now folded into the full installer, which you can purchase at https://iblueyonder.com/portfolio/kpdx-hd/.
      What if I don't care about P3Dv4 add-ons?
    So glad you asked! We just updated our mailing list system with a new set of sub-groups that allow you to set your preference for what sim platforms you want to hear about. To set your preference, go to your My Account page on iBlueYonder.com and fill in the "Join Our Mailing List" form at the top of the page. Since you're receiving this, you're already on the list.

    Antarctica4XPlane - Part I
    I am proud to present Part I of my Antarctica Mesh Scenery Antarctica4XPlane. This first part of my mesh scenery covers the South Orkney Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula down to -74 degrees. Many more areas will follow in the future: I recommend you to follow the project's website to stay up to date.
     
    I work now 2 1/2 years on this mesh scenery. A lot of the remote areas are hand made due to missing or inaccurate data in the public domain (digital elevation models and outlines for the coastlines). So there are areas where you will discover issues in the mesh, but I am sure, you will nevertheless have a lot of fun. If you like Antarctica4XPlane, then please visit the project's support-site and support the further development.
     
    Installation is simple: Unarchive the downloaded file and place the folder Antarctica4XPlane_1v3 into your Custom Scenery directory and add the following line near the bottom (below the research base sceneries) of your scenery_packs.ini:
     
    SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Antarctica4XPlane_1v3/
     
    Caution: If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Part I, then delete the directory of the old version before you start your simulator.
    If you're still using X-Plane 10, then I strongly recommend to switch on "runways follow terrain contours". If you're already using X-Plane 11 then I recommend you my Antarctic Maps because X-Plane's default map doesn't cover the Antarctic Continent.
     
    To start your Antarctica Adventure with Antarctica4XPlane I suggest the Research Base Station Sceneriesavailable on the project's website. First Sceneries are already available and hopefully many more will follow.
     
    Antarctica4XPlane comes exclusively for X-Plane, for free and personal use only, but without guarantee and warranty. You are not allowed to redistribute this scenery or to use any part of it in your own sceneries. Please contact me, if you have questions regarding the license or if you are interested in a cooperation.
     
    HAVE FUN.
     
    Thanks to
    - The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) for digital elevation models
    - OpenStreetMap Contributors for their mapping work on the antarctic continent
    - The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research for additional vector data
    - Nino for the initial ignition of the project, dozens of ideas and his support

    Radar Contact and JDTLLC in Transition
     
    Twenty-one years ago, two Flight Simulator enthusiasts had a common wish, to improve the ATC in FS. A programmer in Atlanta met an Air Traffic controller in Memphis and we created a company called JDTLLC. We began working on Radar Contact which became the best FS ATC program available for many years. In 2001, after 6 years of work, Version 4.3 was released. Seventeen years later, after deep soul searching, we decided to give RC away for free, and step away from the business of supporting it.   As of January 1st, 2019, we will shutdown the web site, our email, our storage providers, and our e-commerce partner.   What this means to our existing customers, and future owners:   1. Radar Contact 4.3 will be available at no charge, by downloading it from my iCloud Drive. Here is the link.   2. JDTLLC will no longer generate keys. We will give you the same tool we use, the Key Generator.  You can download it from here.   3.  Radar Contact will be supported here on the AVSIM forum.   4. Refunds have already been issued to the customers who purchased RC in the last 3 months.   5. John and Doug will be available, as needed, at jdradarcontact@iCloud.com. Keep in mind, support will be handled here on the forum.   During these 21 years, we have encountered tens of thousands of customers, hundreds of supporters and contributors and dozens of beta testers. We will never be able to adequately express our deepest gratitude and thankfulness to each and every one of you.    All we can do is say, "Thank You".

    FS2Crew - PMDG 747 QOTS II V1.3 Released with support for 747-8!
                      Please Note:  If you no longer wish to receive FS2Crew News, please click the 'Manage your Subscription" link found at the bottom of this newsletter.     [4 January 2019] Priority NOTAM:
     
    Version 1.3 for FS2Crew: PMDG 747 QOTS II Edition Released!
    --Adds FREE support (although limited) for the new PMDG 737-8 models--
     
    Please visit: www.fs2crew.com
     
    FS2Crew is happy to announce that Version 1.3 for the PMDG 747 QOTS II is now available.
     
    This is a significant update for the PMDG 747 QOTS II.
    It is a free update.
    The update is built into the main installer only. There is no stand-alone update installer.
    You do not need to uninstall the current version.
    To obtain the update, please login to your FS2Crew account (the link is on the top of the FS2Crew website), and click "COMPLETED ORDERS", then re-download and re-install the package again.
    You do not need to uninstall any earlier version.
     
    Change Log:
    Version 1.3
    Fixes and Changes:
    The 8 model is now supported for free, but with some limitations:
    747-8 USERS READ THIS PART CAREFULLY!!!
    1. FS2Crew 747 QOTS II only supports the 8 model in P3D V4, not FSX.  The reason is due to a panel window limit in FSX.  Again, this is all the more reason to move to P3D V4.  FSX is old and out-of-date.  FSX is  yesterday's news.  It's time to move forward to P3D 64 bits.  It's the future.  
    Do NOT try manually copying the FS2Crew entries into the 8 model's panel.cfg in FSX or you'll mess up the plane!
    2. Due to SDK, legal, and technical limits, the FS2Crew FO cannot interface with the Electronic Checklist System(ECL), so you'll be using the same paper checklists you used in the 400.  
    3. How to add FS2Crew to the 8 model in P3D V4:  You must run the FS2Crew PMDG 747 QOTS II Config manager again and re-enable FS2Crew.  This is necessary to add the FS2Crew entries to the 8 model's panel.cfg file.
     
    Anti-Ice callouts fixed.
    Other minor bug fixes.

    Coming soon - B-47E Stratojet for X-Plane 11 !
     
     

    The ever-popular Virtavia B-47E Stratojet has now been reworked for X-Plane 11 and will be released shortly. A new bump-mapped bare-metal effect has been applied which really brings out the classic lines of the famous Stratojet. The original model's cockpit has also been converted, screenshots will be posted very soon. The RATO function of the FSX version is not included, although it's possible this could be part of a future update. The conversion process is far from simple so we are not able to offer the model package as a free update, although the pricing is favourable at only US$19.95. The new XP11 B-47E is the first in what it is hoped to be a long line of conversions of popular Virtavia titles.
    Looking forward for more and converting of existing virtavia X-plane 10 to X-plane 11

    1 of 5,948       UPDATE: TOGA PROJECTS - ENVSHADE P3D
                  Dear simMarket Customer,

    at http://www.simmarket.com you can now find an update of your product:

    TOGA PROJECTS - ENVSHADE P3D

    (Envshade_patch_1.0.6.exe)

    Dear Envshade user,

    We're glad to announce that our last update of the year is now available for Envshade.

    This update finally brings the directional clouds lighting tweak we are working on for several months !

    While the native directional clouds lighting was still available in others well known shader programs, it was only made compatible with the other tweaks. 
    We didn't stop there: Envshade changes completely the way directional clouds lighting is working to get a realistic feeling round the clock: clouds now receive light depending on their relative position to the sun (and the moon during night time) and of course Envshade also dynamically manages this effect depending on the time of day.

    And if you think this is PBR compatible, you are totally right !

    Full Changelog:
    - Directional cumulus clouds lighting added (for P3D v4.3 and higher)
    - Cloud shadows reworked
    - Cirrus clouds lighting readjusted depending on day-time

    To update your product, please simply click the update button in the Envdir Help page and follow the instructions (Envdir and Envtex updates are not compulsory if you are already up to date) or download the 1.0.6 patch available in your SimMarket account.
    Once the patch is installed, please reapply the shaders into your simulator by clicking "Install to sim" in Envdir.
    You can also refer to this file available in your SimMarket account: "Envshade - How to download and install.pdf"

    We wish you a happy holiday !

    You will find the link to download the update when you log into your user account --> my orders --> respective order.

    Development Update: Just Flight & Just Trains - December 2018
                   
    So where did that year go? Seems only a matter of weeks since we released our first add-ons of the year back in January.  

      We hope you've enjoyed the content that the Just Flight and Just Trains teams have brought you this year, there has been the usual varied mix of new add-ons from Just Flight, perhaps less so from Just Trains but that's something we're aiming to remedy in 2019.  All the products released in 2018 can be found in the Latest Releases sections, here for Just Flight and here for Just Trains. 

    Please read on for the very latest from the two development camps...
     
     
    It’s been a busy end to 2018 for the Just Flight development team. In the past few months we have released the PA-28-181 Archer III, Duchess Model 76 and the Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2 for FSX and P3D, and those products continue to receive regular updates in response to your feedback and to add even greater functionality. Following the release of P3D v4.4 a few weeks ago, we are currently working on a Physically Based Rendering (PBR) upgrade for the Vulcan, bringing the aircraft up to the very latest visual standards offered by the simulator, and we will have more news on that early next year.

    Looking ahead to 2019, the team are working on a variety of new products for FSX/P3D and X-Plane 11. There will be plenty of variety for FSX/P3D users with the Tornado F3, the next generation of our VFR Real Scenery and some classic airliners currently in development. Our popular Traffic Global product will also be coming out of early access.

    The PA-28-181 Archer III and Duchess Model 76 will be coming to X-Plane 11 in the new year, and we will be releasing significant updates for our existing aircraft range to bring them up to the latest XP11.30 standards.
    We'd like to thank you for your continued interest, support and custom and we sincerely hope you'll enjoy all that we have in store for you in 2019. 

    Here's an update on some of the products we're currently working on.
     
    VFR REAL SCENERY NEXGEN 3D
     
    The first volume – Southern England & South Wales – is in final testing at the moment and the other three volumes are nearing completion. We are estimating release in early January. Feedback from our testers has been very positive. The latest version of P3D (Version 4.4) features improvements to the way photo textures are handled and VFRRS NexGen now looks even more impressive in 4.4.

    As a reminder, existing owners of any of our VFR Real Scenery downloads (or disc versions purchased from us) will be entitled to a significant discount on the NexGen series.
     
    VFR Real Scenery NexGen 3D
     
    TORNADO F3
     
    Soon to be added to Just Flight’s already impressive hangar of military aircraft, Tornado F3 development continues at a pace – new HUD, Head-Down-Display, RHWR, weapons management, navigator TV displays, communication and night lighting systems are in place, and the high quality aircraft model is entering its final stages.

    Tornado F3
     
    VC10 PROFESSIONAL
     
    Following on from the release of VC10 Jetliner, we have been busy upgrading the aircraft to our ‘Professional’ level with fully functional systems, including custom-coded electrical, fuel, hydraulic and pressurisation systems. The navigation capabilities will also receive an upgrade with a brand-new INS unit fitted to the navigator station.

    In addition to the systems upgrade, we are working on new Super VC10 and RAF (C1K, K3 and K4) variants which will feature a variety of animations including refuelling equipment and main-deck cargo doors, as well as cockpit modifications.

    We are in the latter stages of the systems coding and work is well underway on the new variants, so keep an eye on the In Development section for the first set of images!
     
     
    SUD AVIATION CARAVELLE III
     
     
    The Caravelle development team are hard at work modelling and texturing the remaining areas of the cockpit following a research trip to photograph a real-world Caravelle simulator in Germany. It is always challenging to collate the extensive reference material that is needed to accurately reproduce classic aircraft such as the Caravelle, and these research trips provide us with the opportunity to explore every corner and peek inside every hatch of the real aircraft.

    With the modelling work drawing to a close in the new year, our coders will soon begin the process of bringing the aircraft to life with custom-coded systems. We will be sharing regular updates on this progress via the In Development page, Facebook and Twitter over the coming weeks.
     
    Sud Aviation Caravelle III
     
    747 CLASSIC
     
    After many months of work, the mammoth job of modelling, texturing and the animation of the 747 Classic is nearly complete. The exterior and cockpit models are now finished, with painstaking detail right down to accurately modelled cabins with staircases (see development screenshot above), and hundreds of custom animations have been added. We recently shared some new preview images of the extensive virtual cockpit which features wear and tear based on a real-world aircraft, and we were pleased to see all of the great feedback and excitement for this iconic aircraft!

    Our coding team have been busy working on the huge array of avionics and systems functionality found onboard the aircraft, from the realistic exterior model animations to the engineer’s panel, and we will be providing more updates on each of these areas in the coming months.

    After receiving lots of feedback from the community, we are now working on additional variants to follow the 747 Classic, including the 747-300, VC-25 and E-4B. More news on those next time!

    747 Classic
     
    TRAFFIC GLOBAL (EARLY ACCESS)
     
    We’ll be back in 2019 with many more improvements and enhancements to Traffic Global, including improved model lighting, more liveries and new features as we move towards a full release version in the early part of next year.

    In the meantime, for those of you who are already Traffic Global users we’ve opened a thread in the Early Access forum where you can request the liveries you’d most like to see added to the fleet. Please take a moment to add those you would like to see and we will endeavour to supply as many as possible in the new year.
     
    Traffic Global Early Access
     
    Here we are in the last month of 2018. Things have been a bit “Swan-like” here at Just Trains and although we have published and released several products such as the fantastic Valley Corridor route, ultra-urban detailed U-Bahn Frankfurt II tram system, super-authentic London-Aylesburyroute both in stand-alone form as well as the add-on version for the Chiltern Main Line, the unique German narrow-gauge Saxon IV-K steam locomotive and the essential UK Military Wagon packcarrying IFA’s, on the surface we may not appear to have been overly busy, the reality is that work on many projects has been happening.  We announced two of these quite recently - the Ultimate Class 37 and the Midland Main Line - Sheffield-Derby route and more will be announced in the coming months. 
    Software development of any kind has its challenges and all manner of things can and normally do affect the development times of projects such as a sim update breaking our code, feature creep where we want to add more features to make the project even more authentic, customer feedback and so on. These can add delays and this is one of the reasons why we try to never issue a release date until we're confident we can achieve the said date.
    We fully understand and really do appreciate your excitement and enthusiasm for our up-coming products but we want to ensure that when they are ready for release they really are ‘ready for release’.  Your patience is as always greatly appreciated.
    Please read on for the latest news on the batch of products currently in development.
     
     
    LONDON UNDERGROUND S8 ADVANCED
     
    The much anticipated London Underground S8 Tube train is progressing very well now after a recent setback following the release of Train Simulator 2019 64bit version. Unfortunately this broke the code that we use that passes messages between the front and rear of the train such as the external destination boards, this meant that for instance you could set Harrow on the Hill in the TCMS in the cab and it would display that on the front external display but there would be no destination displayed on the rear of the train, so we had to update that code plus the code that we had already developed that worked previously.

    Externally and internally the models are all but complete. As an indication of the attention to detail affored to the S8, the real information displays use a LED type matrix system so that any message can be displayed.  This posed a problem as there is no real font for this and so we needed to create a model matrix and then “illuminate” each of the required dots to form each letter and that meant the displays on the model would match the real-thing. We have not yet released a full set of specifications for the S8 as the systems coding is still ongoing but it should not be too long until we are able to do that.

    We are really proud of all of the work that has gone into the development of the S8 and are certainly looking forward to the release to allow you to enjoy a really authentic LU S8 experience.

    S8 Advanced
     
    WESTERN MAINLINES - CORNISH MAIN LINE EXTENSION
     
    Development of the Cornish Main Line has been on-going for some time but the finish line is seemingly in sight! This line is an extension of our Western Mainlines route and as such has to be integrated into the existing network that currently runs from London Paddington all the way down to Plymouth, as long as you have the Devon Main Line add-on installed.
    It has yet to be determined if Cornish Main Line will only be available as an add-on to Western Mainlines or also available as a stand-alone route. As Cornish Main Line is an add-on to Western Mainlines an updated version of Western Mainlines will be released at the same time as the Cornish Main Line .
    We have spent some time updating Western Mainlines to help increase the frame rate speeds, especially with the number of trees used, and this looks to have made a significant difference to performance.  Cornish Main Line and the Western Mainlines update is due for release in early 2019.
     
    Cornish Main Line Extension
     
    ULTIMATE CLASS 37
     
    We recently announced the Ultimate Class 37 and it now resides in the In Development section on the Just Trains website.  This was originally in development with RailRight and we are now pleased to be progressing development by working with Vulcan Productions.

    As per the name, this will be the Ultimate Class 37 and will have sublime modelling and textures, both externally and in the cab, along with a custom sound set, super dynamics and an advanced set of custom-coded features. This is most certainly the one to watch!

    MIDLAND MAIN LINE - SHEFFIELD TO DERBY
     
    Sheffield to Derby is a 36-mile section of the Midland Main Line through the heart of South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, serving the towns of Dore, Dronfield, Chesterfield, Belper and Duffield along the way.
    Development of the route, due to be released in 2019, is progressing very well with all the terrain,  track and Super Elevation complete. Signalling is around 50% complete and the scenery work is about a third of the way complete. Building the many custom assets is about to get under way, and these include the Derby R.T.C and its associated sheds as well as Etches Park Depot and a number of the unique buildings around the stations at Sheffield. Needless to say, the stations and much else besides will be modelled specifically for this route.

    LONDON - AYLESBURY UPDATE
     
    We have been working on a service pack/update for both the stand-alone and add-on for Chiltern Main Line versions of this route. Along with minor bugs fixes we have carried out work to increase the frame rates of the route along with enhancing the visual appearance. We removed extraneous objects such as houses that are not in view from the track and looked at visual enhancements too, for instance we have replaced the grass with a super new asset that really does look good. 

    A main focus  of the update is to prepare London-Aylesbury for the up-coming S8 release. Part of the London Underground Metropolitan Line runs besides and at some points on the very same rails as the London-Aylesbury route. The Met line section of the route is fully signalled and functional and we are now upgrading it to work with the S8.  Part of this upgrade has involved very careful placement of the S8 stop chevrons and their invisible markers that are at each LU station.  This means that when you correctly stop the S8,  that must be in a very precise position, so driving skills ahoy! 

    The S8 in-cab video screens will display (simulated) images of a platform. These are used in the real S8 to check that all is in order with the train before departure. One of the other route upgrades required for the S8 use is the development and placement of invisible markers that communicate with the S8 Radio display.

    The Met line has several radio centres along its route and the name of each radio centre is displayed on the radio and changes as the train moves along the route. We now have this simulated in the S8. The updated London-Aylesbury is due for release in early 2019.
