  6. xEnviro 1.10 Released By Alex John Sunday, June 2, 2019 xEnviro version 1.10 has been officially released for X-Plane 11 by DarkSpace. The update is primarily built upon the dynamics of noise-rendered volumetric clouds, and does not use any 2D textures - no other major simulator environment is built on this concept. In addition, it also adds dynamic snow coverage, a revised atmosphere, and many changes both visually and under the hood. The update builds upon 1.08 and 1.09, which both featured noise-rendered 2D billboard cloud textures, and were a "stepping stone" towards 1.10. On the Threshold Forum, public relations manager Magnus Lorvik gave a lengthy statement about its current state, openly communicating issues that are intentional to allow for better performance, and issues that still need to be fixed: "So, we're well in to the in release candidate run. I will need to prepare you all for what's coming. The latest screenshots are from xE and how it will look at release but xEnviro 1.10 will release with a set of known issues. This is the first run of fully dynamic noise rendered volumetric clouds in any major sim environment. This is completely unproven grounds and in large new technology crammed into a shoe box. So this is where we start. 1.10 will have issues and it will have compromises. (Can't repeat that enough - but also I repeat that it does not stop here!) "Let me explain (and this is important): Lets distinct between issues and features by design that appear as a necessary or unavoidable issues. Something that we have to keep in existence to keep our final design inside the required frame of performance or visuals. I have called these compromises before. Like grain. We just cannot make clouds look nice and have high performance at the same time. Not today. We can't have a slider or toggle for it either since the change in resolution goes deep in to the code. Grain is unavoidable and exist by design as a trade off for performance. Same goes for low detailed clouds and a few other visually related artifacts. "We don't like it but this is exactly how it should look in the final product.. Grain is just a very distinctive example but we have a lot of small features that don't look or perform exactly as they should in the ideal product but they exist in the current form just because this is the maximum of what we can have in the current environment. We could go and fix the gap between xE real horizon and xplane water polys but either distant pink mountains (those with no textures applied) emerge or add more extensive haze lowering the visibility range. We would then have a constant visual limitation of 10-20 km.. So we're choosing between three things - we chose to let some pixels of some grey color exist above the sea providing they are not visible all the time depending on the actual visibility. "These are some of the compromises: (unwillingly implemented or tolerated features by design) Haze blending on mountains Haze blending and covering the edge of dsf (which is hell to get right in x-plane) Haze covering clouds Clouds cutoff with depth test Clouds depth test with airframe Entire pipeline depth test with aircraft lights Gap between xE horizon and XP horizon "Here is the list of known issues: Known issues or bugs are there because we need to move on and some were discovered too late. We just don't want to go back to beta and xE is usable as it is now. You have waited long enough and 1.11 won't be far off. Precipitation follows camera Unnatural cloud formations at high levels or squared sectors of clouds Snow coverage may appear in the regions where no snowfall encountered recently Default X-Plane night triggers lights artifacts "To round this off: These are just a few of the challenges we have struggled with and will continue to work on after 1.10. Along side the roadmap. We usually find ways around and mend these issues and compromises but we have come to a point where we have to say enough is enough. xE is where it can be enjoyed as long as you take in to account that it (as with any other weather addons) has it's limitations in its current state and with current average user systems. The difference is that we are now on fully dynamic noise rendered volumetric clouds. And we are now starting the run to perfect this technology so we in the future can experience a visually breath taking, living and well performing environment engine. "This is just the beginning. "We want more." The changelog for V1.10 is below: Added: Maximum ozone level slider. Volume rendered clouds. Maximum intensity slider. Blur level slider. Reduce surface crosswind checkbox added. New alternative sun glare. Checkbox to display or remove diffraction spikes. Camera blue filter slider. Draw default night sky checkbox. Parameters for water waves adjusted to match current weather. Dynamic snow coverage in the mountain areas. Dynamic surface snow coverage. Dark airport surface when wet. Maximum snow coverage slider. Wet aerodrome surface effect checkbox. Draw snow in mountains checkbox. Volume shadows for haze. Automatic server selection based on response time. Changed: Calculations for scattering, perspective and optical depth have been separated. The entire scene lighting is now calculated dynamically for the key points. Scenery albedo now dynamically adjusted for a better environment representation. Low level haze scattering calculation allows variable particle size. Turbulence slider now controls the average amount of flow disturbance. ALOFT data format has been changed, sampling rate increased, vorticity data added. Airport lights range has been adjusted to match the actual visibility range. New rain effect. New snow effect. Rain and snow affected by aircraft lights. Volumetric landing and taxi light beams. Default surface drifting snow removed at runtime. Separate windshield effects for rain and snow conditions. Windshield effect now displays reflective raindrops. Combined atmosphere shader adjusted to hide the DSF edge. Database update has been moved to the separate thread. Removed: Resolution slider has been removed. Complexity slider has been removed. Reflections range slider has been removed. Detailed range slider has been removed. Maximum drawing distance slider removed. Post processing checkbox removed. Remove scenery shadows under overcast checkbox removed. Billboard clouds have been completely removed. Crepuscular rays temporary removed. Draw crepuscular rays checkbox has been removed. Camera shift slider removed. Fixed: Assymetric projection matrix applied to the cockpit camera. Camera zoom is now correct. Early low resolution depth test has been removed to allow full resolution depth test. Aircraft is no more in the shadow above the cloud layer. The update is free of charge for existing users. The update can be downloaded here. xEnviro can be purchased here from the Threshold Store for US $69.90, or x-plane.org for the same price.

  12. Threshold Exclusive: Hot Start Challenger 650 Announced + Previews By Keizo Ono Sam Clark Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Hot Start, developers of the uber-popular Take Command! TBM 900, have debuted their next aircraft for X-Plane 11. Announced today, the Bombardier Challenger 650 is their latest project, promising ultra-high levels of detailing and systems depth. The announcement of the Challenger 650 came via a Livestream from developer Goran Matovina, with the developers kindly providing Threshold with some exclusive screenshots of the aircraft for our readers. Hot Start's latest project is being modeled, textured, and animated by Goran Matovina (also behind Leading Edge Simulations and their Saab 340A), with its flight model and systems being coded by Saso Kiselkov, who's behind the very popular Librain rain effect library. The Bombardier Challenger 650 is a twelve seat private jet with a maximum range of 4,000-nm (7,408-km). The 650 is an improved variant of the older Challenger 605, which features a redesigned cabin, a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics suite, as well as a slight increase in takeoff thrust over its older cousin. The feature list for the Hot Start Challenger 650 includes: Study level recreation of the Challenger 650 in every aspect (unless limited by the sim). Highly realistic flight model, the plane will very closely represent its real-life counterpart in handling (within a few percent)...this will be tested and verified by real Challenger pilots. An unparalleled level of system depth, like the TBM 900 the Challenger 650 will feature completely custom systems and subsystems. As with the TBM, each subsystem will function like its real-world counterpart...there won’t be anything surface level about this aircraft. Realistic sounds - the Challenger 650 (similar to the TBM) uses a custom sound engine to fully recreate the aircraft in different states/phases, sub-components are also fully accounted for here, each containing its own sounds. These sounds will be sourced from real recordings of a Challenger 650. Usage of modern hardware - like the TBM, the Challenger 650 will utilise multi-threaded CPUs to ensure that the complexity of the aircraft does not significantly affect frame rates. The Challenger will feature full aircraft state persistence, every part of the aircraft’s state will be restored when you reload. Airframe manager (like the TBM) allows you to save multiple different airframes, each with their own different wear and tear based on how you treated it...also allows for custom registration markings. The aircraft will encounter wear and tear over time, and maintaining the aircraft will become part of the experience, as well as flying the aircraft correctly to increase its longevity (as with the TBM) Performance of the aircraft will be affected based on its state (e.g. worn tires are less reactive to input, more engine wear leads to less maximum power) The Challenger 650 will have the “Challenger” feel to it, just as how every aircraft has its own personality of sorts The developers have informed us that the Challenger 650 will not be releasing this year. Estimates from Hot Start point to either Q1 or Q2 of 2020. Hot Start remains tight-lipped on price too, saying a firm price point has also not been established yet. As with the development of the TBM 900, Hot Start will be very actively and openly developing the aircraft. Those who are interested can expect many future streams from Goran Matovina's Twitch (LeadingEdgeSimulations) and Saso Kiselkov's Twitch (totoritko). Threshold will be closely following the progress of the Hot Start Challenger 650. If you would like to view the full announcement stream from Hot Start, click here.

  15. XPRealistic Pro V2 Announced After an extended period of silence from RKApps, the developer behind SimHat and XPRealistic, has announced that the latter will see a complete rewrite. The goal of XPRealistic is to add to the immersion felt while in-sim, with effects like realistic pilot head turning, prop enhancements and more pronounced G-Force effects. RKApps say version 2 will be a standalone plugin, meaning that FlyWithLua will no longer be required to run the utility. In a post on the X-Plane.org Forum, head developer Roy Kro explains what is planned for the new version: v2.0.0 development has started and it is on its initial stages. Yes, this is a major version, the next bullet will explain why. I decided to write XPRealistic Pro from scratch, this time as a stand alone plugin for X-Plane, that means FWL won't be required anymore. The new version is built in a way that will allow XPRealistic to expand into more areas in terms of effects. The above means that I have lots of work to do! Please keep up your patience. In a later comment, Roy goes on to say VR compatibility is very much being considered, though he can't guarantee it's inclusion. You can purchase the existing XPRealistic Pro for $19.99 here.

  22. The VSKYLABS C-47 Skytrain Flying Lab Project AU build 2.8.01 New Update The VSKYLABS Store Contact The VSKYLABS C-47 Skytrain Flying Lab Project AU build 2.8.01 New Update The VSKYLABS C-47 Skytrain Flying Lab Project version v2.8.01 was officially RELEASED! *Down below, at the end of this message, there are important notices - don't forget to have a look! New version v2.8.01 has set the foundations for the future update plan to version v3.0. The VSKYLABS C-47 Skytrain FLB is now representing a comprehensive C-47/DC-3 simulation, beefed up with exciting new features and systems. Here are v2.8.01 features highlights: The project is 'VR Ready': VR functionality is a part of the project aspects which are constantly under evaluation and development for reaching higher level of immersion as the VR features and possibilities are growing. Highly accurate performance and handling simulation of the DC-3/C-47, along with a full set of traditional/old school radio, navigation and autopilot systems. Workhorse for practicing DC-3/C-47 pilot skills: Experience authentic flight performance and handling practices (takeoff, landing, single engine operations, flight planning, long range flights and old school navigation). It is a perfect platform to recreate and fly historic routes using authentic performance. Unique look and feel: There is nothing to hide - the VSKYLABS DC-3/C-47 is a mixture of a simplified yet very engaging design. Systems - All the relevant systems are being simulated, including a fully featured cockpit, equipped with the C-47 authentic cockpit layout and VFR/IFR instruments. Highly defined engines/propellers systems with an authentic feathering system. Superb two and single engine performance. Here are some of the more unique systems which were added in v2.8.01: Two speed Supercharger blowers - based on the PW-1830-90C engines model, equipped with lo/hi blowers. The high blower configuration is allowing high altitude cruise. Oxygen system - including crew dilution/regulator, pressure indicator and functional flow-indicator ("Blinker"). Do not forget to enable hypoxia in X-Plane's general settings menu. Fire Extinguisher system - including fire indication system. The fire extinguisher control panel is located behind the hinged cover on the cockpit floor, between the pilot/co-pilot's seats. Damage simulation - engines are sensitive to rapid spool-up. Engine abusement will result in severe damage to the engine/engine fire. Stressing the airframe will result also in severe damage, following a visual representation of the damages, including prop-strike visualization and loss of control surfaces both visually and within the flight dynamics model. Interconnected fire, cockpit smoke and ventilation setup (in case of fire, open the windows to ventilate smoke out of the cockpit). Sperry Autopilot - Old school autopilot is configured. Anti-Icing/De-Ice systems, including icing and rain visualization (non-librain). Skis - Animated, incorporated in the flight dynamics model. Aircraft Performance: Aircraft performance and handling qualities were designed and tested in a "Research level" approach and went through a validation process of more than 300 hours (up until now) of flight testing and evaluation by real-world C-47/DC-3 pilot...stretching X-Plane to its limits. Easy to operate by beginners: All relevant systems are simulated but with the focus on getting the “Flying Lab” airborne without the need to go through a long “ground school” (although it is highly recommended to get familiar with the C-47/DC-3 in order to stretch out all of its potential). Still under development with a long-term development plan for the package, which will include continuous work and refinements on the Flight Dynamics Model, systems, and modeling. STMA Autoupdater included. Important notice #1: The VSKYLABS C-47 Skytrain FLP Project is featring the STMA Autoupdater plugin, which means that it is mostly probable that most of the users got the latest update automatically, already. However, the store package was updated with the new project build (v2.8.01). It is highly recommended to download and use the new build, as it is better to keep the gap between the store build and the autoupdater incremental build as low as possible. Improntant notice #2: It is highly recommended to register to the VSKYLABS Store, as you will be able to log into your account, check your purchases and download them for updating or backup purposes whenever you need. Registering to the VSKYLABS Store is straight forward. All you have to do is to register to Sellfy using their main webpage: https://sellfy.com/ (Don't be confused by the 'Open my store' option. It is a free feature for all Sellfy users, and of course you don't have or need to use it). Keep in mind that you have to register with the same email addressed that you've been using to purchase your products in the VSKYLABS Store. Once you are registered to Sellfy, you may log into your account at the VSKYLABS Store. Thank you for flying VSKYLABS! JMH - VSKYLABS SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  24. Update on New Releases and Beta Versions Update on New Releases and Beta Versions View this email in your browser Stick and Rudder Studios Delighting The FlightSim Community Dear Flight Sim Enthusiast, You are receiving this email because you indicated you were interested in beta and new releases from Stick and Rudder Studios. X-ATC-Chatter X-ATC-Chatter 1.6.1 is now officially released. This is a free upgrade to all customers who have purchased X-ATC-Chatter. 1.6.1 contains over 2,000 additional audio clips across multiple regions. In addition the X-Plane 11 stand alone player has some bug fixes and enhancements. Added a float dataref that can be used with FlyWithLua to change the volume level of the chatter. Corrected a problem on Windows where the stand alone player could create ASSERT errors when used with a non-English character set. Added an integration for the X-Plane 11.3 improved ATC voice system Created a separate OpenAL context even when working with the X-Plane OpenAL device in an attempt to cut down on the interference from other plugins sharing the same X-Plane context. Corrected code signing for OSX binaries for X-Plane 11 so they will work with Yosemite Corrected some problems with window placement in X-Plane 11 when multiple monitors or scaling was being used. Added code to prevent resizing of popped out windows If you purchased X-ATC-Chatter via the X-Plane.org store you can get access to this free update by simply logging into to your X-Plane.org store account and go to your downloads page and download X-ATC-Chatter.zip again. If you purchased X-ATC-Chatter directly from the Stick and Rudder Studios website then you will need to use the "View Product" link in the Gumroad receipt that was e-mailed to you when you purchased the product in order to download the new version. If you misplaced your receipt you can attempt to log in to your Gumroad library account to retrieve it. If you still can't find the receipt contact us at the link below stating the problem and we will email you a duplicate receipt. It may take up to a day for us to get you that duplicate. https://www.stickandrudderstudios.com/contact-us/ In both cases the X-ATC-Chatter.zip file is quite large (~970 MB) so it will take some time to download it from either the X-Plane.org store or Gumroad. I want to thank all the volunteers who helped us add the over 2,000 extra clips to X-ATC-Chatter. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please visit: https://www.stickandrudderstudios.com/x-atc-chatter-project/ If you do not yet own X-ATC-Chatter you can view a demo video and purchase the product at either the X-Plane.org store or directly from the Stick and Rudder Studios website. The price is the same at both locations. https://store.x-plane.org/X-ATC-Chatter_p_890.html https://www.stickandrudderstudios.com/x-atc-chatter-overview/ Active Beta Programs X-KeyPad 1.2 X-KeyPad 1.2 is nearing the end of its beta test. 1.2 contains new features as well as support for OSX and Linux as well as the new XKE-40 device from P.I. Engineering. If you are interested in this beta you can join the discussions and get access to the beta drops on the forum: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/161391-x-keypad-12-beta/ X-Camera 2.4 and 2.3.3 The beta for X-Camera 2.3.3 and 2.4 is underway. The primary purpose of 2.4 will be to take advantage of the new X-Plane 11 SDK that supports pop-out windows and scaled UI elements on 4K displays. Since 2.4 will require X-Plane 11 it will only run on that version of X-Plane. There are some enhancements that can be added that do not require the new X-Plane 11 SDK. For this reason we are going to put those enhancements into a 2.3.3 release first before starting 2.4 Once 2.3.3 is released we will continue to support it on X-Plane 10 but it will not be getting any of the enhancements targeted for 2.4. X-Camera 2.3.3 and 2.4 will be a free upgrade for all X-Camera 2.x customers. We will also maintain the current set of functions that work in the unregistered version of X-Camera. Here is a list of the enhancements we will be attempting to get into X-Camera: https://www.stickandrudderstudios.com/answers/categories/2-4-feature-requests/?question_type=all&search= There has already been some progress on 2.3.3. You can gain access to the beta and follow its progress by visiting the forum: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/161883-x-camera-24-beta/ We would like to thank all of you for your continued support of Stick and Rudder Studios.
