  3. EU Netherlands TrueEarth for Aerofly FS 2 Orbx has said time and time again that 2018 is the year where all the research and development will start to come to fruition. Part of that process was releasing their new technology which has been named TrueEarth. The first in a long line of TrueEarth products is Netherlands. We reviewed it a few weeks back for P3Dv4, but today, Orbx wanted to preview the technology but this time in Aerofly FS 2. If you don’t know what TrueEarth technology is, it’s a blend of photoreal terrain and more traditional scenery development. Meaning that buildings, vegetation and points of interest match up perfectly to the photo ground textures.

  5. Welcome in South Florida, with 9 new major airports, 600kms of coast, Miami and the Keys in high resolution, IPACS just released this new DLC for AFS2. The DLC is available on Steam with a 15% discount for launch SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.aerofly.com/community/forum/index.php?thread/13213-welcome-to-south-florida-and-the-florida-keys-get-your-copy-on-steam-today-relea/ PRODUCT LINK : https://store.steampowered.com/app/898700/Aerofly_FS_2__USA_South_Florida/
  6. IPACS was cruelly absent from last shows like Vegas, and we had very little news from the (small) team. But they do work hard : just saw that from Steam : I will add that we heard (from Helisimmer during a recent "3 Grumpy simmers" episode), the incoming arrival of a new type of aircraft in AFS2 : helicopters ! Well at least the 1st one : an R22 that has been tested and verified by a well known heli pilot Claude Bouchard.

  7. After much effort working to get universal advanced motion control to work across multiple VR headsets we are proud to say that it was worth the wait. We originally planned on releasing ‘VR Hands’ only for Oculus users but decided to go all in and offer this spectacular new feature to everyone! The wait is over! With the need to make this available for both Oculus Touch and Vive, and to present a universal code to add support for other motion control devices in the future, we opted to write our very own version of ‘VR Hands’ that we know you will enjoy. With the addition of this exciting new feature, Aerofly FS 2 blurs the line between reality and virtual flying even further. VR pilots with motion controllers can now fully operate any Aerofly FS 2 aircraft with your own hands; every button, every switch, every lever that is currently operational in the aircraft can be operated with your virtual hands, using real-world gestures the same natural way that you would in real life. So what about the flight controls? We have you covered! Grabbing the yoke with your virtual hand(s) gives you full control of the yoke. So what happens if my arms get tired keeping my hands in the air while flying? We have you covered here too! We have designed a system that will allow you to fly with the analog sticks/pads of your motion controllers so that you can not only put your hands down for a rest during your flight but also give you the ability to keep control of your aircraft while in other views. This new feature will also allow you to use one or two motion controllers in conjunction with other physical controllers, so whether you have your own flight yoke and rudder pedals or just a basic joystick that you can’t part with you can now add this new freedom to your configuration for an ultimate flying experience. The possibilities are endless. Your new VR Hands were designed to use your motion controllers as the only controllers that you will ever need to fully operate Aerofly FS 2 and fly like a real-world pilot, so there is no need for additional controllers or even your keyboard if you so choose. Let your new virtual hands and full freedom take your flight simulator experience to the next level. Try this out today and be warned, you will be hooked. As developers we have a continuing and growing passion for developing Aerofly FS 2 into the best virtual flying experience ever seen, and it's fueled by the growing community that has stood behind us the entire way. We are committed to building upon the solid foundation that we already have, and will continue to build until we have the best flight simulator ever made. For detailed instructions on how to use your new virtual hands check out the Aerofly FS 2 user manual on our official wiki HERE . BONUS: A 40 minute long video showing exactly how immersive and user intuitive this feature is, bridging the gap between simulation and reality just a tad bit more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SddS_tjeWrw SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.aerofly.com/community/forum/index.php?thread/12624-aerofly-fs-2-vr-hands-have-arrived/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  8. This Add-On for the Aerofly FS 2 flight simulator contains over 30 of the most important and visually appealing airports in Switzerland, such as Zurich, Grenchen, Samedan and Birrfeld. Furthermore high resolution aerial photography with a resolution of up to 1 meter is included. As a special treat this Add-On also contains the idyllic airport Speck-Fehraltorf (ICAO-Code LSZK). This airfield is located east of Zurich in the CTR Dübendorf and is often referred to as “die Speck” by the locals. It is run by the “Verein/Flugsportgruppe Züricher Oberland” FGZO. This grass airfield (equipped with Perfo-plates), which is located near the Pfäffiker-lake, sees especially high traffic on sunny days in spring and summer. The airport is also a popular day excursion destination for bikers or other trippers who would like to visit the restaurant 'Im Speck or enjoy a snack on the big visitors terrace (with playground and a clear view of the airfield). A very special thanks goes out to the crew of the FGZO: Fabi Riesen, Ines Widmer, Daniel Stäubli, Christoph Amman, Tino Seitz, who helped us greatly in implementing the airport.

  9. The team behind the VR-focused simulator, Aerofly FS 2, have announced that Mac users can now get their hands on the simulator via the Mac App Store. With Windows (through Steam) and Android already available, this brings the total of supported platforms to three. Before you fire up the Mac App Store to get your hands on this, Mac users, the developers have said that along with running macOS 10.13 or later, your system must be similar in power to that of the PC version’s minimum system requirements. Jeff from IPACS says that the new Mac version is an equal port of the PC version, and therefore Mac users should not expect a watered down port for compatibility. Jeff also hints at a Linux port not being too far behind, saying that “whether you are a dedicated PC, Mac, mobile, or even Linux user, we have you covered”. Linux users, we’ll be sure to keep our ear to the ground for news on when you’ll be able to jump into the left seat in Aerofly FS 2. LINK TO SOURCE: https://fselite.net/

  11. When Iain says “final shots”, you know that release is right around the corner. This must mean that release of Orbx’s latest Aerofly FS 2 entry is going to ready very soon. If you don’t know, the next release will be Eagle County Regional Airport, by Jarrad Marshall. The shots below represent what will most likely be the final product, giving you insight into the amount of detail Aerofly FS 2 will allow developers to cram in. We anticipate release will happen in the next day or so, and when it’s available, we shall let you know. For now, check out the Orbx forums for continued updates.

  16. Aerofly FS 2, not a bad sim at all this and growing steadily.
  17. Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator was officially released November 20th. Greetings Fellow Flight Simmers, Following a long road of development I am pleased to announce that today Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator is officially released! Leaving Early Access is a monumental step for the future of Aerofly. We have all worked very hard to provide our community with a solid core engine to build upon, and today we can confidently say that we have reached that milestone. “Every award-winning structure begins with a solid foundation”, and we believe that we now have that. So, what’s next for Aerofly? The best answer to this question is “plenty”. Now that we have a solid core it’s time to get to work on features. Features will now be our focus moving forward. Aerofly will continue to be developed, and updates will continue as well. We are so excited about the official release of Aerofly FS 2 we intend to add a new airplane to the growing fleet very soon. This new aircraft is the Bucker Jungmeister! This new aircraft will have exceptional detail and physics so realistic you would swear that you are flying the real aircraft. Look out for this new free aircraft coming very soon! Until then, here are some screenshots of this highly detailed aircraft. Go to Aerofly FS 2 Steam page for pictures of new aircraft. As always, we will continue to aim for the stars in our continuing quest to provide you with the best flight simulator experience around. Look out for some cool new features coming your way such as ATC, advanced motion control ‘VR Hands’, a new logbook feature, more scenery and aircraft, and much more! We would like to thank the Aerofly community for your commitment, suggestions, bug reports, testing, and discussions. You are the reason why we have such passion to succeed, you are the reason for our motivation, and you are the reason why Aerofly Flight Simulator will become the best simulator on the market to date.

  18. ORBX CEO Pricing Announcement Hello everyone, By now it is obvious we intend to embrace new simulators in 2017 and beyond. Rest assured that our CORE premiere platform will remain FSX/P3D and every new product we release will make it to that platform first. It will take quite some time to release versions of our products for these emerging platforms, perhaps years. If we release a product for an emerging sim platform which you already own for FSX/P3D you will NOT have to pay full price for it again. As an existing customer if you are on OrbxDirect you will get a minimum of 50% off, perhaps more. OrbxDirect has already been built to be multi-simulator, as has FTX Central V3. You will be able to switch simulators with just a click or two. This will allow you to manage multiple collections of Orbx addons in the one place. Remember, once an addon for any simulator platform is in your OrbxDirect account, it's there forever. So if for example you already own a license for KCGX Meigs Field and you decide to buy it for a new sim, you 'switch' OrbxDirect to that sim and make the purchase; OrbxDirect knows you have a license for it and automatically gives you the minimum 50% off. Or alternatively if browsing a product page you can just click on the sim platform you want it for and existing licenses are automatically taken into account. Orbx will never, ever make you buy any of our products twice because we make it available on a new platform. If a clear winner emerges in the coming platform wars over the next five years then we will adjust the pricing policy to reflect the sim where the majority of our customers are. We live in exciting times as simmers, and we believe that people will have three, four, or more sims installed to choose from, depending on their mood, how much time they have at any given moment, what style of flying they want to do, what VR platform they enjoy, and many other yet unknown factors. We want to ensure everyone has the chance to add their favourite Orbx addons to their platform(s) of choice without being penalised price-wise, so this is our way of letting it happen as painlessly as possible whilst still funding the substantial R&D $$ costs we will incur.
