    Courtesy of FSElite, another developer is starting to showcase P3D V4.4 PBR...
    ==
    With the excitement of Prepar3D V4.4 now starting to die down, developers are starting to pour development efforts into seeing how they can use the new PBR technology in their products. Leonardo Software has already began showing their progress with their MD-XX series, and FSDreamteam with their upcoming Chicago O’Hare. Today, LatinVFR contacted me to inform me that they have been working on updating their current P3DV4 scenery library to include the new PBR texture set.
    The first product to be upgraded to include the new textures will be Santiago SCELv2. The product was originally released earlier last month to positive community reviews. The team has since been working on how they can implement the new technology and have given us the first glimpse into how it looks. Developer Ricardo described Prepar3D V4.4 as a “game changer” and is “very surprised they added this on a current version of P3D.”

    From their website, ASXP will have plenty of features to enhance your experience in X-Plane 11:
    Active Air Effects: Replaces internal X-Plane turbulence and air effects, providing enhanced turbulence, drafts, thermals, terrain-based wind effects, surface friction, gusts, variability, wake turbulence, microbursts and more High-Performance Weather Depiction: Uses internal X-Plane 11.2x/11.3x cloud depiction for maximum performance and smoothness, with multiple weather depiction modes including theme cell “real weather” mode and global static mode – VR compatible and optimized! Active Sky Weather Engine: An evolved version of the Active Sky platform brings the core features that made Active Sky the leading weather engine for other platforms: Advanced weather synthesis and interpolation, high-resolution global winds aloft, realistic air and atmosphere effects, a comprehensive weather data network, integrated visual mapping and planning, and much, much more Voice Weather Delivery: Active Sky ATIS and Flightwatch are available at any time by listening on 122.00, 122.02 or 122.03 for closest station, actual/current interpolated conditions and destination weather reports, respectively Surface Crosswind Attenuation: Optional, for better ground handling in crosswind conditions while preserving headwind/tailwind component for performance accuracy Mobile Companion App: Use any device/browser to connect with Active Sky over your network and view and control the weather It should be noted that cloud replacement textures will not be available just yet:
    We have put our previous X-Plane visual cloud replacement efforts on hold (until next year) due to performance considerations and changing API environment/tools that are not yet finalized We expect our visual cloud replacement technology to debut in Q4 2019, subject to change based on many factors ASXP features high-performance cloud depiction with a focus on conditions accuracy, utilizing the X-Plane internal cloud rendering via a hybrid API approach, with two different modes available ASXP also features an optional high-performance photo-realistic cloud texture replacement with a simple texture installation wizard Additionally, only Windows 64-bit from Windows 7 upwards is supported:
    Mac, Linux and 32-bit X-Plane/Windows versions are not supported In a networked environment, the ASXP application/client may run on Windows 32-bit (7 or later), but X-Plane must be 64-bit on Windows 64-bit (7 or later) We hope to bring additional OS/platform support in the future X-Plane version 11.26 or later (64-bit for Windows) is required And also provided, the list of requirements:
    X-Plane v11.26 or later, 64-bit Windows Version (Mac and 32-bit Windows versions are not compatible) Windows 7 or later, 64-bit Version Active internet connection (broadband recommended) 500mb available hard drive space 1GHZ+ CPU 2GB+ RAM nVidia GTX 500 series or later Graphics Adapter (or equivalent)

  13. TomcatUK liked a post in a topic by monoblau in The legacy of Heinz Dziurowitz.   
    The Simmers of the first hour will know the name Heinz Dziurowitz well. He was a pioneer in aircraft manufacturing  and one of the key figures in the early days of X-Plane. His models were state of the art at that time and the first payware models in the XP universe. Unfortunately he past away some years ago and his models have not been further updated. The rights to his work today has X-Plane-org (how waterproof and legal that thing is... I do not know and as long noone earns money with his work nobody will ask) and so helpful members of the Cummunity sometimes polished up old heinz models to turn them into freeware for the community. With the permission of ORG, org course. A helpful member named DomHenry has already done this with various models. His latest work, however, fits so well with the style of the SkyLounge that I want to present it here. We are talking about the
    Lockheed Lightning P-38
    - one of my favorite FSX planes - now for free and in excellent quality for X-Plane11 at ORG.

    Hello all,
     
    Just a quick update.
     
    I think we are in a position to release tonight (Saturday night UK time).
     
    Full TE GB-S product build up on the servers and propagated to the CDN nodes - check! Product page complete - check! Email blast formatted and ready - check! Release announcement formatted and ready - check! Final tests of new FTX Central code - in progress.....  
    You will need to download a new version of FTX Central to be able to install TrueEarth GB South. This new version adds the new decompression system and other X-Plane specific functions. Be sure to upgrade FTXC before installing TE GB.
     
    We are pretty pumped about this release - the "buzz" on forums, internet and social media is huge, and reminds us of the launch days of FTX Global.
     
    Here's a quick straight V-key grab from my laptop whilst doing some final testing over EGHI an hour ago...

    The world's longest commercial flight has left Singapore for New York, beginning a journey scheduled to cover more than 15,000km in almost 19 hours.
    Singapore Airlines is relaunching the service five years after it was cut because it had become too expensive. 
    Flight SQ22 departed at 15:37GMT with 150 passengers and 17 crew.
    The inaugural flight from Changi Airport to Newark's international airport, which services New York, took off amid much fanfare.
    However, Singapore Airlines told passengers before take off that their flight to Newark, while still the world's longest flight by distance, could only take some 17 hours. 
    Qantas launched a 17-hour non-stop service from Perth to London earlier this year, while Qatar runs a 17.5-hour service between Auckland and Doha. 
    See the link below for more from the article.

    I gather here is no economy (coach) in this flight. Only business class and premium economy.

    Milviz Preview SR-71 With PVD Implementation
     
      In a quick little post to their Facebook page, Milviz showed off the latest preview of their upcoming SR-71A, this time with implementation of the PVD!
    For those who don’t find themselves buried in the SR-71 flight manual in their free time, I’ll give you a basic rundown of what the PVD is and how it’s used. PVD stands for Peripheral Vision Display, and is a device used for attitude orientation at night. The device projects a red, thinly focused, laser-generated line on the instrument panel that is parallel to the horizon. While this device can serve as a rudimentary roll and attitude indicator, the main purpose is for it to aid in overall spatial orientation when flying the aircraft at night, something that was previously a major issue in the SR-71. Those wanting to find more information on the PVD, or the SR-71 in general, can read the full and declassified flight manual.
    The Milviz SR-71 certainly looks to be progressing well, with the last shots we’ve seen showing off the gorgeous night lighting in the cockpit. Milviz hashatags on the post indicate that the aircraft is now in-game, so hopefully more information on the aircraft’s state will be available soon. When we have any new information concerning the SR-71, we’ll try to be the first to share! (we also plan to review the aircraft when it releases, so stay tuned for that!)
