    The last we’ve heard from FlyTampa regarding Las Vegas was back in July, today, over on their Facebook page, they’re back with one landside preview of Las Vegas McCarran Intl. Terminal 3.
    FlyTampa had announced in their previous post that they are doing the strip and surrounding suburban area around the airport which has taken them a lot longer than expected. We will eagerly be waiting for more previews of the rest of the airport and surrounding area.
    We don’t have much more information regarding FlyTampa Las Vegas, but we will ensure to keep you updated as more news regarding the airport surfaces.
     
    Here’s a photo of the real world Terminal 3 for comparison:

    The whisperjet is now available for $20 @ http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=qw146p3d4
    No new functionality over the FSX version, but the price is fair.

    Over on the Orbx forums, John Venema shared some of the new things to come with the upcoming service pack, SP1, for GB South. Showing Orbx is committed to their region packs, he shared a list of new features and point of interests that users can look forward to in this update. Orbx released GB South just last month for X-Plane 11 for $32.95 AUD.
    New Features
    Hundreds of new castles in England and Wales More unique models in London and other cities A new ZL18  ortho imagery for central London spanning from Hyde Park to EGLC London City Airport. This will make the capital really look amazing especially doing those Thames runs down low, and approaches to EGLC. Improved ZL18 ortho for Portsmouth Possible new Dover cliffs and detail Many hundreds of 3D models along the coast to improve the look of ports and coastal towns More variety of light houses and correct placements Many more POI models of important structures, including bridges SOURCE INFO

    Flight1 Updates FS Effects (FS Stall Effects)
    Over on their Facebook page, Flight One Software has announced that an update to their FS Effects utility has been released. This update also brings a name revision, FS Effects was previously named FS Stall Effects.
    FS Effects is a unique and highly-configurable add-on utility for FSX/SE and Prepar3D v3-4 which realistically enhances your virtual flight experience. The add-on utility has received an update to version 1.02 which adds more controls to tweak and edit your aircraft’s flight characteristics.
    This update introduces throttle response tweaking, engine start-up time tweaking and a battery life extension which allows you to increase the length of time your aircrafts’ battery will last for before the engine gets to juice it up which is unrealistic for some aircraft.
    The interface allows you to select an aircraft from your library and make adjustments to the characteristics listed at the end of this article.

    Here is our newest Prepar3D Warbird release, the P-40. The P-40 is the most manual and raw Warbird we have made, with a manual throttle and cooling functions. It's a very satisfying airplane to fly.

    This P-40 also comes with the latest rain physics we debuted with our Accu-Sim Bonanza. We are now rolling this our entire P3D fleet.

    We plan to offer our rain physics as freeware to the developer community so they can easily integrate it into their own projects.

    Since the release of Orbx TrueEarth Great Britain South, Orbx has started ramping up the releases of their British airports for X-Plane 11. The next in a long line of products to come is Shoreham Airport (EGKA).
    Shoreham Airport in the south of the UK is of the biggest bases for flying schools and other activities along the coast. The nearby scenery, landmarks and coasts make it a scenic trip for any pilot taking off from Shoreham. The team porting it over have gone to great lengths to ensure that it meets the high standard users would expect including HD textures, animated flags, custom modelled airport and houses and matched colouring for TrueEarth Great Britain South.

    Over on their Facebook group, Supercritical Simulations Group (SSG) has announced a major milestone in the development of their CRJ-700NG for X-Plane.
    The exterior modeling and texturing on their CRJ-700NG has been more or less finalised. Along with the announcement, they’ve provided an abundance of eye-catching screenshots for your viewing pleasure. Previewed, are the seven individual liveries which will be included in the final product along with the CRJ house livery.
    SSG has told us exclusively that the price will be close to that of their E-Jets add-ons and that they speculate a mid-2019 release. Version two of their Boeing 747-8 is currently taking priority over the CRJ until released.
    If any more information arises regarding development, we will be sure to keep you updated.

    JustSim and Digital Design Update Brussels for X-Plane
     
    Released a couple of weeks ago, the team at JustSim and Digital Design has updated their Brussels scenery based on user feedback and other found issues.
    The update sees the Belgocontrol Tower being upgraded with new night lighting, autogate system being added to the appropriate gates and a range of night textures fixed around the city. Furthermore, the orthophoto colour has been corrected for better blending with default terrain and the scenery has been rebuilt for “world traffic 3” routes.
    If you don’t own the scenery already, you can buy it from SimMarket for EUR 23.50. The product is also available for P3D V4 at the same price.
    Full change log:
    Add your cBelgcontrol tower upgraded (night lights, strobe and red lights) Added hills near tower and road Fixed hole in apron Fixed apron lights near Terminal C and TUI hangar Terminal model fixed Added autogates system Added fences Added more cars Autogen fixed Night textures for city models changed Concrete surface parameter fixed Orthophoto color correction for better blending with default terrain Few gates position changed Rebuilded “world traffic 3” routesontent… SOURCE INFO

    Milviz Updates PA-30 Twin Comanche
     
    MilViz has received overwhelmingly positive feedback on their PA-30 Twin Comanche although, there was just one piece missing from the aircraft for users who are ‘not so old school’ which made it feel incomplete, an autopilot.
    MilViz has updated their PA-30 with their own custom coded, highly detailed KAP 140 autopilot system. They have carefully replicated the logic used in the real KAP 140 autopilot system in their in-sim rendition for the PA-30. Their manual has been revised with an autopilot overview and in-depth set of instructions, you can view it here from page 20-32. You can enable the KAP 140 autopilot through the MVAMS application.
    The autopilot is not the only addition to version 181102, MilViz has also added two Bendix-King instruments and texture updates, you can view the full changelog at the end of this article. You can grab a hold of this update over on the MilViz website here.
     
    MilViz KAP 140 Autopilot If you don’t already own the PA-30 Twin Comanche, you can grab a hold of it at the MilViz website for $39.99 (Incl. VAT). The aircraft is only compatible with FSX and Prepar3D v2-4.
    Changelog
    Copy/pasted the newest files for the P3Dv4.3 ..\PanelCfgs folder. Added revised manual to include 16 new pages on the autopilot operations. Installed KAP140 Autopilot. Installed Bendix-King Attitude Indicator. Installed Bendix-King HSI. Added Text Labels for NAV1/NAV2 switch under the HSI. Updated MVAMS to add a checkbox for the AP System. Added new lightmap BMP files for the new instruments. Added click spots to turn on/off the cabin lights from the overhead (click on the depression in the front) or either of the rear lights. Note that if using the “Freeradio” option night lights require Shift-L to control. Edited all 40 of the panel.cfg files to add the two new lightmaps. Updated the aircraft.cfg file per Well’s latest version. SOURCE INFO

    Apron lights from OrientalSim, greatly enhancing night-time atmosphere in the airport A fix for some long-running elevation issues AFCAD improvements allowing the scenery to work properly with P3D night lighting. You can download the scenery for free at this link.

    From helisimmer:
    Frank Dainese has shown a few more screenshots of his work with Fabio Bellini in the upcoming 3D Everest Park for X-Plane 11.
    In the new screenshots of the scenery, which will come out in December, Frank has shown some details of Lukla.
    These screenshots show a live environment with lots of men, carts, cargo and other paraphernalia around the airport. This is exactly the kind of detail we love to see in these places and I have the feeling this scenery will quickly become one of the helicopter community’s favorites.
    December’s not arriving fast enough!
