    Ooooh .. that looks stunning. I was going to post a giphy, but I think searching for 'pocket rocket' would return some very dodgy images!!

    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.

    In another bizarre aviation related incident, courtesy of BBC news .. French speakers (such as @TheMapleSyrupCan ) will get more out of this video clip than the rest of us!
    =
    One of the biggest airports in France was closed after a car fleeing from police broke through onto the tarmac.
    The driver tried to flee on foot but was surrounded and arrested by officials.
    =
    The video appears to be taken from inside an airliner that was taxiing near the incident.

    With Cosford just over 2 months away. Can I suggest to @OMGEDSON and the rest of the TSL crew to consider posting a meet up and possibly a few options en route before / after the event . If time and monies allow.
    For example:
    visit RAF Hendon museum; visit De Havilland museum (both of these are quite close to your journey up the M1 from London).
    Visit a professional static 737 simulator at a small airfield (Sywell) which is a small detour from the M1.

    Also, could I  cheekily put a request in for a lift in the TSL limo if there’s sufficient space?!

    I'm planning to come along. Can I speak to you guys about the possibility to tag along in the SkyLounge limo? Also, if anyone is up for sharing a hotel room to keep costs down then let me know.
    @OMGEDSON did you see my post from last month on this topic? I put in a few suggestions for some activities along the way if time / funds permit.

    Laminar Research has dropped some interesting photographs of something that isn‚Äôt seen in current flight simulators ‚Äď neighbourhoods.
    The X-Plane developer showed off two photos on their Facebook page showcasing what they titled ‚Äėneighbourhood auto-gen‚ÄĚ. The photographs showed high-resolution photos of a typical neighbourhood setting, complete with houses, a park, and mailboxes at the end of the driveway ‚Äď all from a street-level perspective.
    While there is no firm release date for the 11.30 update, the developer has ÔĽŅteased some other features that will be included, such as particle effects, updated physics (using research mode), upgraded prop-wash and down-wash effects, crew and passenger oxygen systems, anti-ice systems, and new autopilots.

    Oh no; another case of potential theft in our community.
    These do look SO similar that I think Drz studios has a good case (especially as he has original photos they were based upon). 
    It is a real travesty that someone’s hard work and love gets ripped off like this.

  24. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by Vitus in Lockheed Vega 5 v0.04 Update Inbound   
    Hi guys,

    I just uploaded a new video on youtube in which I talk about the new update (v0.04) for our Lockheed Vega 5. The update will be available on Friday (fingers crossed and thumbs pressed (that's the German version of fingers crossed)). Here's what you can expect of it:



    I'm very excited about the new effects that come with the update. This includes start-up, smoke, a new landing light, touchdown, etc.
    The effects are custom designed and provided by:



    And look amazing!

    I also decided to give my physics engine a name. It shall henceforth be known that the Wing42 Lockheed Vega 5 is powered by:



    Please note that the price of the Vega will increase by 5 Euros with this update. If you purchase it before version 0.04 you'll be only pay the introductory price of 25 Euros. (Plus, don't forget the TSL discount)

    Cheers,
    Vitus
