  1. MegaSceneryEarth Australia Release The teams over at MegaSceneryEarth/PCAviator have released their very first addon package focussing on the land down under. MegaSceneryEarth is an addon that adds high-resolution photo scenery to entire areas, improving the visuals and making the environment more realistic and immersive. MegaSceneryEarth Australia uses the latest MegaSceneryEarth v3 technologies, which includes accurate water masking, texture colour correction, 1m source imagery and better dawn/dusk texture/light blending. MegaSceneryEarth Australia consists of five different packages, each of them covering a different region of the country. There are Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales (SE, NE, W). You can pick up up these addons now from the PCAviator Store, with the prices of the different regions varying from $59.95 to $29.95. All regions are available for FSX and all versions of Prepar3D.

  2. Just why. should they not be maybe looking at something a little more unique and interesting than stuff like this that we already have. Just my thoughts?????
  3. [UPDATE 0715z 20/09/18] ImagineSim Seeking Support to Develop Frankfurt (EDDF) Scenery [UPDATE 0715z 20/09/18] ImagineSim has now confirmed on their Facebook page that Frankfurt is no longer going ahead due to the lack of co-operation from airport authorities at Frankfurt. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————- Frankfurt seems to be an extremely popular airport within the flight sim community to develop. Aerosoft have already released a popular rendition of the airport, and Flightbeam were keen to create one. Sadly, the later of the two has been cancelled. However, it would appear that ImagineSim are looking to break into the German market with their own version. Whilst ImagineSim are updating their website to bring it to more modern times, they have updated their “Future Products” section of the site. Thanks to reader Dean, who informed us of the information originally, the future products part of the site is now seeking assistance for developing Frankfurt Airport. The team state that they now have access to “remarkable” ground imagery for many airports in the German area. As part of their new “evolution” series of products, Frankfurt was chosen to be the first to take advantage of this new imagery. However, the team have met some challenges along the way, similarly to Flightbeam, in that they cannot get the access they need to take on-site photos for the product. The team are asking that anyone who works at, or has contacts with, Frankfurt Airport should reach out to them to help get things moving along. They’re generally looking for someone who can obtain details about pathways and other fact-finding information. No time frames or other information was given at this time. In the mean time, you can view some of our exclusive images for Singapore, which we’re hoping is released sooner than later.

  4. FlyJSim Updates 727 Series Professional V3 SOURCE INFO Despite releasing an excellent aircraft last month, developers FlyJSim has updated their 727 Series Professional 3 with a range of fixes and general improvements for the user. The primary focus area of this update are on mach hold and tape movements, the leading edge flaps not deploying when using the alternate flap and visuals on the aft cargo door. Further to general fixes, the team have added a brand new maintenance system for the tires. If you’re a pilot that likes to land firm, you may need to rethink your style as if you land too hard or heavy, prepare to pop a tire or collapse your gear (and have a meeting with tea no biscuits with your manager). There’s a nice range of improvements in the free update from the team, so waste time no more and download the update to the plane we enjoyed very much. You will need to grab the Skunkcrafts updater to download and apply update 3.1809.1125 to your 727 Series Professional V3. Here’s the full change log courtesy of their Facebook post. https://fselite.net/news/flyjsim-updates-727-series-professional-v3/
  5. LatinVFR San Diego SODE Update After updating Miami with SODE jetway support just two weeks ago, LatinVFR has also released an update for San Diego (KSAN) with the popular addon. After downloading the update from your vendor of choice, you should be able to use SODE jetways instead of the default (Ctrl+J) ones, to ‘enhance your jetway animation experience‘ according to the developer.

  6. Skyline Simulations Announce Dash 8 200 & 300 Skyline Simulations has today announced, via their Facebook page, that they’re currently working on a couple of the often forgotten models of the Dash 8 family for X-Plane. The developer, primarily known for their scenery products, used the announcement to show off some early renders of the Dash 8 200 and 300 models that are currently being worked on, while also outlining their intentions for the project. In the post, Skyline Sim stated that they intend to produce a “study level” simulation of the aircraft with “accurate flight dynamics and systems simulation”. This includes the UNS-1 Universal FMS System that the real-world aircraft is equipped with. This should hopefully come as welcome news to X-Plane users and fans of the Dash 8, who have been crying out for an overhaul of FlyJSim’s Q400 for quite some time. Additionally, the developers promise an accurate and true 3D model which they say “will be extremely faithful to the real aircraft and will be impeccably detailed at a standard the XPlane [sic] community has come to expect from developers”. While this may sound like it’s going to take up a large amount of the developers’ time, they do assure their fans that their current scenery projects are not being delayed as a result, and work continues on projects such as KORD and an upcoming CVG update. The only question that comes to mind with this announcement is if Skyline Sim are producing the Q200/Q300 models, or their earlier, non-ANVS brothers. Without doubt, the X-Plane community will be watching this project very closely, as will FSElite. We hope to see work continue on this project and will aim to bring you updates as they’re made available. For now, check out the renders below.

  7. TorqueSim Shows Off Renders Of Upcoming Pocket Rocket TorqueSim has recently released five photos of their render for the upcoming Pocket Rocket on their website. The aircraft will be available for X-Plane 11 and feature in depth detail including a fully simulated electrical system and oxygen system. FMOD sounds for the PT6 engine, custom weather effects on the windshield and even ice on the leading edges of the wings. The post did state however that a full list of everything that is included with this aircraft will be on a list before it hits the store.

  9. MilViz Releases More ATR Previews After stating earlier this week that the recent work has been all coding and that there’s ‘nothing to show [sic]’, Milvis has surprised us with some more in-dev screenshots of their upcoming ATR 42 aircraft. The screenshots came directly from their facebook page, showcasing the turboprop sporting Silver Airways’ new livery. Neither a price nor release date has been set, yet, so stay tuned for those.

  10. FSDreamTeam Issue GSX Level 2 Update to Fix Blurry Texture Bug by Calum Martin on 16th September 2018 20 comments FSXNewsP3D facebook Twitter Reddit The release of GSX Level 2 last week has seen the flight sim community take plenty of screenshots of their new in-sim avatars walk along the apron into the virtual buses or down the SODE jetway to be greeted by the new cabin crew. However, the software itself had been reported by a fair few forum users about how their sim become a bit of a blurry mess after installing GSX Level 2. Although originally dismissed by the developer as they couldn’t recreate it, after more proof was submitted by the community, FSDreamTeam were able to investigate the issues more thoroughly. With this in mind, the team were quick to release a statement and a fix via their FSDT Live Updater tool. In their statement on Facebook, the team said: “We found the cause for blurred textures when using GSX Level 2 with many scenery add-ons installed (especially global vector/landclass), and it was caused by a bug.” They continued by saying that users should use the FSDT Live Updater to install the new fix to ensure it no longer impacts their simulator. You can buy GSX Level 2 now from their store for $29.00. Don’t forget, you’ll need to already own the original GSX for GSX Level 2 to function. We’ll shortly be publishing a review of GSX Level 2, so stay tuned to FSElite for that. You can watch our first look video above in the mean time.

  11. Orbx Confirmed Visby Airport (ESSV) for Swedish Bundle Back in May, Orbx developer Marcus Nyberg shared that he was working on a Sweedish bundle, which would include Kiruna (ESNQ) and Dala Airport (ESSD). Just a week or so ago, Marcus took to the forums again to hint that there was still a surprise waiting to be revealed. That surprise was confirmed today to be that Visby Airport (ESSV) will be part of the complete package, which is due out very soon. Along with that, Orbx Marketing Manager, Aimee, gave some more details about the airports to come in the bundle. About Visby Airport Visba is a busy airport which sees a range of types of airliners and aircraft visit. From military operations to the commercial terminals – there’s a lot going on. Marcus is said to have spent a lot of time creating a realistic rendition of the airport by also including a huge range of objects around the airport, the city of Visby and nearby harbours and small towns.

  12. TOGA Projects ENVTEX SP2 Will Integrate With REX SkyForce 3D ENVTEX has been out for a while now with developer TOGA Projects being quite on what new development is currently on the table. However today, the team teased a few new features for the upcoming service pack for the product. SP2 for ENVTEX will bring photorealistic cloud coverage, new sky textures, new contrail, contrail, water and weather effects. Furthermore, there will be brand new airport textures and a revised Envdir UI and more. Interestingly, the team have confirmed that you will be able to integrate ENVTEX’s new clouds with REX SkyForce 3D for some breath-taking effects. Furthermore, users of Active Sky Cloud Art will be able to use the dynamic feature whilst also using the new clouds SOURCE INFO https://www.facebook.com/togapjcts/posts/1741481422641061?__xts__[0]=68.ARBrlbPgEfrwncROBhxOpwS_l2UeCqYN9fA1zxUM6j6dr1mMNI8mPHcymGQyBxF3uCWqYVERI2yJc0R6soEM0yiDYUdSctheeCJH37khhNj5v4ZTnq3CB5UWdsUlZgRbBfiraFe02vuO33oTrvZfwIfv3tHLQRLoNs9tS2jhKkLXZs0TVbyYDQ&__tn__=-R https://fselite.net/news/toga-projects-envtex-sp2-will-integrate-with-rex-skyforce-3d/
  13. Such an organic machine yer, should be super cool.
  14. A rather small update to an older scenery, Drzewiecki Design’s EPKK Krakow has been updated to v1.4. Changes include removed demolished buildings, inserted new constructed buildings, upgraded apron light lighting, and more. While this may not be the biggest update, Drzewiecki did acknowledge that while some areas, like ground markings, weren’t updated, v1.4 is an important step towards any potential updates in the future. V1.4 can be had for free (provided you already own the product, obviously) and the demo has been updated as well to reflect the new changes.
