  2. Back Archive Spam Delete Mark as unread Snooze Move to Labels More 4 of 6,499 X-Plane: TBM Update Followup from X-Aviation TBM 900 v1.1.6 Free Update! View this email in your browser HotStart TBM 900 v1.1.6 Update Comment Please Read... Hello Stephen, Earlier this morning we released v1.1.6 of the TBM 900. Some customers began reporting to us they were still getting v1.1.4-c installed regardless of how many download attempts they made of 1.1.6. We have identified the problem here and corrected it. Please re-download the new installer and run it to ensure you have 1.1.6 properly installed. IMPORTANT FOR MAC USERS! You must first ensure you have ejected any DMG files associated to TBM installers before running the new one or you will receive component not found errors during download and install! We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and hope you will be able to enjoy a weekend filled with TBM flying! Click here and login! Simply re-download your original purchase. Here's what's changed in version 1.1.6: Improvements / New Features: Implemented new LOC guidance code to work around the need to set CDI to front course. Implemented YD phaseout with airspeed. Added multi-threaded rendering support for synthetic vision. SYN VIS should now be much cheaper on performance. New rain effects using async compute. Available only on Windows & Linux. Mac gets the old rain effect. Implemented the "Vertical track" audio message. Made SYN VIS horizon headings more readable by adding darker outline. Redesigned steering force control logic to better handle centering forces. Bug Fixes: Steering had a confusing delay on it, which made for difficult directional control. Turning on NAV or STROBE lights should disable red wingtip beacons. Overspeed should come on at 269 KIAS and turn off at 268 KIAS. Reverse numbers should be 27-35 trq, 1850 rpm, Ng 85%. Gear manual extension rates were incorrect. WXR-related crash during resumption of previously interrupted flight. "FMS LFE" should be automatic upon FPL entry on the ground. Pushing Go-Around should put the HSI back into GPS mode. Replaced aural_warn_test and gear_warn recordings with cleaner samples. Implemented OVERSPEED aural message. Force the avionics_on dataref to 1. When we had the A/P override set, unset it if the CDI mode changes. SYN VIS north horizon heading should be 360 and sub-100 headings shouldn't have a leading '0'. SYN VIS airport loading could fail sporadically, resulting in missing runways. SYN VIS old method of computing airport label placement was broken. AIRAC cycle 1904 was mislabeled as 1304. Make sure GL_BLEND is enabled, because in X-Plane windowing context it sometimes isn't. Bezel drawing didn't work in popped-out windows due to X-Plane swapping in a different OpenGL context. X-Plane 11.32r2 seems to have broken our Vertex Array Object processing, so we have to work around that. As always, thanks for purchasing from X-Aviation! We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you more in the future! Blue Skies, X-Aviation.com SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  5. A few weeks ago, AirfoilLabs quietly debuted their development of Pioneer Field (PAVD) in Alaska. Located in the city of Valdez (around 100 nautical miles to the east of Anchorage), the airport is surrounded by beautiful terrain consisting of a high mountain range that surrounds a bay. On their website they stated that the scenery will include “the detailed airport as well as the entire bay of Valdez together with the town and marine terminal”. This scenery is certainly great news for anyone interested in general aviation, bush, or float aircraft. Alongside this project, AirfoilLabs has also been developing their King Air 350i. Progress on that project can be viewed here. SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.airfoillabs.com/copy-of-kawo NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.thresholdx.net/news/aflvdz

  9. Our friends at Stairport Sceneries are mere days away from releasing their latest X-Plane scenery, Berlin Brandenburg Airport (EDDB), developed in partnership with Aerosoft, LimeSim and 29Palms. The under construction airport is billed as the replacement for the areas ageing and congested main airfield, Berlin Tegel (EDDT). Stairport Sceneries' X-Plane rendition of EDDB was first announced in November last year and is based on the Prepar3D "Professional" version first released in March 2018 by Aerosoft. Head developer Marten has kindly sent us some exclusive images to share, along with a release target for BER: The feature list for the X-Plane version of BER was released back in January, which you can view below: Highly detailed rendition of Berlin Brandenburg International Airport "Willy Brandt" (BER) Custom animated approach lights (SAM Plugin required) All jetways animated (SAM Plugin required) Includes the older Schönefeld (SXF) airport (north of BER) with the same level of detail Includes two configs to switch between SXF and BER operation Numerous dynamic objects like apron vehicles High resolution day and night textures Extensive coverage of over 100 km² with high resolution aerial imagery (0.2-0.4 m/px) Realistic 3D grass and vegetation Ground Layout: End of 2018 Compatible with default AI-Traffic and WorldTraffic 3 A notable addition to the feature list is full Scenery Animation Manager plugin (SAM)compatibility, coincidentally also developed by Stairport Sceneries. The plugin, which you can download here, essentially allows the addition of a bunch of moving parts into sceneries, such as multi-door moving jetways, animated ground staff and operable hangar doors. See more about SAM in our exclusive article about the plugin from last year. You can see more about Aerosoft/Stairport Sceneries Berlin Brandenburg XP by viewing one of our previous articles.

  12. COLIMATA Preview Video Drops on Concorde's 50 Anniversary Fifty years ago today in 1969, Concorde took to the skies for the very first time. Although she is no longer flying today, COLIMATA have steadily been progressing with their X-Plane 11 rendition of the iconic aircraft, which is set to go into early access soon. It follows on from a statement given two weeks ago, which read: "The early access version includes all main parts of the final aircraft. There are some components that will be finished and features added during the summer. To give you an idea: For example, the handy pushback truck will not be ready on day one of the release. Fortunately, Concorde has a reverse gear 😉 (thrust reversers). Another example: Not all complex CIVA functions or Autopilot functions will be available immediately. During the summer more and more will be added. "The aircraft is built in a manner that the user normally just needs to update one little plugin file (~2MB) and the new functions are available. Very handy. The early access version will ship at a discount, the final version later is included in this price. It will be available in the store on x-plane.org. "Early access versions are not for everybody. Some users accept only perfectly finished aircraft in every aspect and that's ok. I will public all details of what you get and what is not ready on day 1 to make this as transparent as possible. "Concorde is easy to fly but not so easy to manage. With the early access version, you can start to fly and learn Concorde. And there is a lot to learn if somebody what's to dig deep. Concorde has no flaps or speedbrakes for example and comes down at incredible pitch angles during landing. She's really unique in so many aspects. As with all our aircraft (FA-18F, MiG-29), we also try to find ways that the person that normally flies props or other aircraft types is able to manage the aircraft for a quick flight without studying for weeks. "For the 50th birthday of Concorde I will release the next video. This time in color and cockpit alive 🙂" Work in progress images from July, 2018 ‍ COLIMATA's Concorde has had several previews in the past already. Our coverage includes: Preview: COLIMATA Concorde video COLIMATA Shows Progress of Concorde's Cockpit More Exterior Shots of COLIMATA's Concorde ‍ Stay up-to-date by finding the official preview thread here.

  13. FRANK DAINESE AND FABIO BELLINI RELEASED CERRO TORRE - LOS GLACIARES 3D FOR X-PLANE The team of Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini have released another spectacular 3D scenery, turning their focus to Cerro Torre Los Glaciares National Park in South Patagonia on the border between Argentina and Chile. Not only does the scenery include both Cerro Torre (at 10,262 feet) and the Fitz Roy (at 11,171 feet), users will also get the virtual El Chalten Airport, complete with an 800m runway, apron area, and 4 parking spots. The Base Camp at Cerro Torre also includes a heliport and each area (both the heliport and airport) have 3D building models. Both mountains have been reconstructed using 3D models and DEM data was corrected using a 3D graphics program before HD textures were applied (taken from HD photos). The scenery can be purchased from the X-Plane.org store for $22.95.

  15. DMO is working on the final stretch of their S-64 Skycrane for X-Plane and they are bringing us some new intel on the model. As the team moves near the release of the S-64 (no release date yet, folks – keep it cool; the team’s hard at work), we got access to some more exciting details and screenshot of this amazing beast of the skies. Most of the work being done right now has to do with small details and improving the 3D model and the textures but DMO is already working on some of the scenery they promised to release to give us a better sense of purpose for the S-64. We will have a ski resort, a remote firefighting helicopter base, a firefighting crew in need of assistance and a flatbed truck loaded with HVAC units near a tall building. Aside from that, DMO has modified the water drop system (which they had working already – you can see a screenshot at the top of this article) to use the new particle system which is looking quite amazing! DMO mentions it as being “the pièce de résistance of this model”. I was dying to see a developer doing this and, now, DMO brings this to the giant of the aerial firefighting. Thank you! The particle system is also bringing the turbine and APU exhausts to life as well as any engine fires you might have. DMO says the model is not too far away from being able to be fully tested. After that, I presume it’s a matter of time (and some debugging) until it can become a part of our virtual hangars. Stay tuned, folks. This one should not be too far away!

  18. Does PMDG Need X-Plane More Than X-Plane Needs PMDG? Saturday, February 23, 2019 marked a major turning point in the history of PMDG: we saw the ESP giant discontinue further 32-bit development of new product lines.Although, in the course of two separate forum posts, little direct reference was made to X-Plane, an interesting opportunity to analyse their future on Laminar’s platform presents itself. It is well known that the next major product out the door at PMDG will be the third iteration of their 737 product line. Although the product has not received an official name yet, it is referred to internally as the NG3, and, according to Randazzo, is about to enter beta testing in short order. It is widely believed that the product will be largely analogous to the 747 Queen of the Skies package and would thus contain most, if not all, of the existing 737NG variants, with a later 737 MAX expansion on the cards, as is known with virtual certainty from earlier reveals. Randazzo hinted that the 32-bit discontinuation would free up some much-needed developer resources, which would enable them to shift their attention to other, parallel developments such as X-Plane releases. It is interesting to note, however, that if PMDG were to release the NG3/MAX for X-Plane, they would be hopelessly late to the party. We already have several good options for this airplane, such as the freeware Zibo modification, which already has 70 to 80% of the feature set of the NGX, with a MAX to follow. This does not bode well for the NG3 on XP, especially given the price point at which it would likely be sold. Nevertheless, Randazzo has stressed that PMDG will indeed appear on X-Plane, so it will be interesting to note the order and timeframe in which the products will be released. "We already have several good options for this airplane (the Boeing 737), such as the freeware Zibo modification, which already has 70 to 80% of the feature set of the NGX" Given the existence of freeware options, PMDG is likely to initially focus their efforts on products other than the 737, such as the 747. Even there, they would not be alone given PSX exists. It is X-Plane compatible with ease, and offers much deeper features, albeit at a slightly higher price point. Still, it is with little doubt the most detailed representation of its subject matter on the market, for consumers anyway, unless one takes into account the absence of a 747-8 option of course. It may, in fact, be the case that the 747v3 was primarily designed as a platform for the 747-8, which was known to be the big seller – Randazzo has himself admitted that the latest glass-jets make the most financial sense, and, as such, any further classic releases from them should be considered side projects. Considering its ensuing retirement from airline fleets worldwide, with BA likely to be the last passenger operator in about 2024 after 40 years of service, the 747-400 could itself be considered a classic, at least in passenger operations. When I met with Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt last autumn, they commented that the 747-8 would be kept in their passenger fleet for the foreseeable future, with the 777X being looked at as a replacement. In parallel, the 747-8 should be a keeper in X-Plane also. PMDG's current range of Boeing airliners for Prepar3D, excluding expansion packs. This takes us to the 777. Although there is at least one worthwhile XP rendition in early development, and another in rumoured development, here is where I see the best entry point for Randazzo’s outfit. For the purposes of this essay, the first version of FF’s 777 should be considered outdated. Given the stature that the 777X will likely occupy in tomorrow’s commercial aviation market, it will be interesting to see whether PMDG has considered a strategy analogous to the 747v3/NG3, and offer a 777v2 with 777X as an expansion. Equally intense rumors have surrounded a potential PMDG 787: this is a product we might not see on ESP because of QualityWings’ offering, but that remains an option with regards to X-Plane. It would certainly satisfy their current criteria for choosing new projects. A different question entirely, however, remains whether this community actually needs PMDG at all – we have a plethora of “native” developers with more arriving on the scene on a daily basis. Multiple of these should be considered capable of taking over the market niche occupied by PMDG on ESP, such as FlightFactor. It is also interesting to note that Robert Randazzo has used some quite strong language with respect to the X-Plane community. This could be taken as implying that we do not represent a priority for the company at the moment. A case in point is their negligence with respect to updating the DC-6 for XP11, and despite comments to the contrary by Randazzo, it remains possible that our community will occupy a secondary position in their portfolio. Additionally, many of the payware development projects currently in progress for our platform more or less directly disrupt the PMDG portfolio – the SSG 747-8i v2 is a good example. Altogether, it is clear that PMDG will have to act soon instead of Soon™ if they want to gain any foothold on this part of the market. Otherwise, there will be no free seats for them at the table. Orbx arrived on time – what about PMDG?

  21. EGTH Old Warden is located near Biggleswade, Bedfordshire. We have tried to capture both the history and natural beauty of the airport and surrounding area. Almost every single object seen in the real airport has been accurately modelled and positioned, allowing you to immerse yourself in a realistic flight simulation environment. Old Warden and the Shuttleworth Collection is a private aerodrome and operates unlicensed. The Collection is situated at Old Warden Aerodrome, one of the few traditional all grass aerodromes still in regular use. The Shuttleworth Collection depicts the history of flight from the early 1900s to the 1950s and shows how the airplane operated in the pioneering years. It was rapidly developed through necessity during World War I, was used for sport, pleasure and business in the 1920s and 1930s, and once again became a fighting machine in World War II. Grab this piece of history!

  22. Although released at the tail end of 2018, the team at HiFi Sim Tech has continued to release updates for their weather engine for X-Plane 11: Active Sky XP. The update comes as part of the 1st service pack release but fixes a couple of errors found with the first release candidate. This update reduces the roll motion in turbulence and also adjusts turbulence for less effect on light & medium weight GA aircraft. Furthermore, the team has addressed a memory leak relating to logging. You can download Active Sky XP SP1 Release Candidate 2 from HiFi Sim Tech’s website. You can buy Active Sy XP from multiple resellers, all of which are listed on the Active Sky XP product page. Full Change Log: Slightly reduced roll motion in turbulence effect Adjusted turbulence for less overall effect for light/medium weight GA aircraft (2000-10000lbs) Fixed potential memory leak/crash/OOM issue related to logging Fixed an error in parsing old .fms flight plan format containing an uppercase “3 VERSION” line SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://fselite.net/news/hifi-sim-tech-release-active-sky-xp-sp1-release-candidate-2/
