  1. Captain Sim 757 Captain III 757-300 Expansion Available Captain Sim has released their 757 Captain III 757-300 Expansion pack for Prepar3D V4. Only a few weeks after multiple updates and the release of the freighter version, the team has released the final expansion pack for their 757 package. The 757-300 expansion pack includes custom engine performance, FMC set up and flight modelling to match that of the real Boeing 757-300. Both engine variants (RB211 and PW2043) are included, but it is not a requirement to own the RR expansion pack. You will, however, have to own the 757-200 base package. As expected, the product uses the ACE system for use of downloading free liveries, adding other things such as winglets and other features. The Captain Sim 757 Captain III 757-300 Expansion Pack is available now for Prepar3D V4 for $19.99. It is worth noting that the price of the base pack has now gone up from $75.70 to now $99.99. Update: After we published the story, Captain Sim applied a ‘sale’ to the price, bringing it back to $75.70. No word on when the ‘sale’ will end. Full Feature List (both engine types): Custom engine performance Custom FMC setup Custom Flight Model SOURCE INFO https://www.captainsim.com/store/ https://fselite.net/news/captain-sim-757-captain-iii-757-300-expansion-available/
  2. After the release of the Captain Sim 757 Captain III Freighter for P3Dv4 earlier this year, the development team has released the 32-bit version. The 32-bit version is compatible with FSX, FSX:SE and Prepar3D V3. The 32-bit version of the aircraft is an add-on for the base pack and brings the complete freighter experience along with it. In total, 11 models have been released with the expansion pack, and include both engine variants: PW and RR. Other features include custom engine performance, custom flight model and animated high loaders and a variation on the freighter model itself. The Captain Sim 757 Captain III Freighter is now available in 32-bit form for $19.99. Unlike in the 64-bit world, there doesn’t appear to be an essential pack, which was released days after the initial Freighter release on Prepar3D V4. Don’t forget, you will need the original base pack for FSX/P3Dv3 which is available here for $69.99. Sim House livery: • 757-200PF with RB211-535E4B engines • 757-200PF with PW2037 engines • 757-200PF with PW2040 engines • 757-200PCF with RB211-535E4B engines • 757-200PCF with PW2037 engines • 757-200PCF with PW2040 engines • 757-200SF with RB211-535E4B engines • 757-200SF with RB211-535E4 engines • 757-200SF with RB211-535C engines • 757-200SF with PW2037 engines • 757-200SF with PW2040 engines Each engine variation provides: • Custom engine performance • Custom FMC setup • Custom Flight Model The RR engine systems and sounds included.

The version 1.301 update brings several new features, including freighter expansion compatibility, along with APU sounds on exterior views.

  6. Freeware Sound Pack Released for Captain Sim 757 III Over at the Captain Sim 757 Facebook group, a generous person named Alex Tavares has released his freeware 757 CS Sound Project for the Captain Sim 757 III. 757 CS Sound Project is a completely free, semi-complete overhaul/replacement for the Captain Sim 757 III’s default non-engine sounds inside and out. From the video linked above, you notice quite a major difference in quality compared to the add-on’s default sound set leaving you with a more overall immersive experience from start to finish. As mentioned above, this is a non-engine sound replacement. Amongst some of the default sounds replaced is the battery power sound, hydraulic sound, fuel pump sound, APU startup/shutdown sound and more which can be listened to at the timestamps listed in the video’s description. When installing ensure you follow and read through the included Instructions.txt as it is an installation process that may be tricky for some and requires you to change a couple of config files. If you need support or have a bug to report, you can email Alex here (atav2004@gmail.com). You can grab a hold of the 757 CS Sound Project for free over at this Google Drive link. It is compatible with the Captain Sim 757 III for both FSX and Prepar3D v3 & 4.

  8. Captain Sim CS Team Offline Posts: 2109 Joined: Nov 7th, 2005 GOODBYE FSX! Today at 3:21pm Print Post Captains, It's 12 (twelve, Karl) years since FSX release! Great sim, the last and the best one from Microsoft. Space Shuttle was our first FSX product... We are sure that FSX will continue to fly for many more years, as FS9 does, but it's time to retire FSX officially. Technically that means no more updates, no new developments for FSX. The last one is the 757 CAPTAIN III for FSX (the upcoming Freighter and -300 expansions). That's it. GOODBYE FSX! To add even more drama, we'd call it the end of 32-bit era, which means P3D2-3 are retired as well.

  14. After CaptainSims release of their Boeing 757 and some news about an incoming update back in February, everything went incredibly quiet around this much anticipated project. Many people have since been wondering what had happened to the update that, in posts they made earlier, seemed right around the corner.

  15. One of the developers from the CS team has published a pretty comprehensive changelog with additional features they'd like to introduce with the upcoming update. What caught my fancy most was the inclusion of split scimitar option. I hope they also include the performance benefits the new winglets provide but in all likelihood it will probably just be a cosmetic addition. Something to look forward to while we wait for Flight 1s B757 product which will probably be out of beta soon.. within the decade.. hopefully. From their forum: Captains, The first day of Spring is a good time for a brief heads up on the 1.1 progress. We're working extra hard to make the 757 a better product, hoping to include into the 1.1 quite a number of new features and enhancements. To fix: - VNAV descend PTH to SPD switch and the A/T response to the switch. - The engine startup sound stutter. - FMC "invalid entry" message for flaps 1. - Proper engine rating on the CDU info page. - A couple of issues which may cause CTD on some systems. - To decrease the roll MOI. - The reverse sleeve animation. - The yoke shape. - The yoke column height. New features: - The cockpit states real-time management via FMC. - The 4-door configuration model (including the escape slides). - Tutorial engine auto-start (Ctrl+E). - An option to turn off the F/O's CDU, ADI, HSI displays. - ZFW on the Payload Page auto-update. - An option to select less intense landing lights FX. - Forward access door animation. - E/E access door animation. - External power hatch animation. - Overflow valve animation. - The main exit set to D2L. - Separate selcall audio files for user customization. - V1, Rotate, V2 callouts. - Clickable VC CDU to call the 2D CDU panel. - Brand new ACE. - An option to select the new Scimitar winglets. Also we got a few more things on the list. Anyway, we're hoping to see the 1.1 solid enough to be converted and released for 32-bit platforms (FSX and P3D3) as well. When? Well, you know the answer SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://www.captainsim.org/forum/csf.pl?num=1519920447 NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  16. Captain Sim has shown off a shot of their new 757 update, which is apparently coming ‘ASAP’. The shot was posted on their Facebook page and shows off the four door configuration on the popular narrow-body aircraft.

  17. Just over a month ago, Captain Sim released their 757 Captain III for P3Dv4. It was met with some positive views from the community, but lots of feedback to help make the aircraft even better. A few weeks after, hotfix 1 was released addressing some of the concerns, and the team committed to listening to the community for more feedback. A few minutes ago, the team released hotfix 2 which has added a whole bunch of new features and fixes to the 757 Captain III. One of the most featured requests was the addition of having fuel and payload added to the FMC instead of using the complex method of external managers and in-sim fueling pages. Furthermore, you can also use the FMC to determine the ZFW, jetway control and control the pushback. Other improvements include 40 additional cockpit control sounds, window wiper sound effects and the CDU is now a pop-out. Some of the bigger bugs has also been addressed including fuel flow, VNAV fixes, cost index calculations and an improvement on the CI/Mach number. To install, you can download the update file from here. Once done, make sure P3DV4 isn’t running and install the update. The patch will overwrite all modifications of the original product. It’s not clear if you need to have hotfix 1 installed first. Just in case you do, you can get that from here. Captain Sim has said to continue watching their forum for further updates and improvements. Full Change log: – ZFW and CG management via FMC is added. – Fuel management via FMC is added. – Payload management via FMC is added. – Pushback control via FMC is added. – Jetway control via FMC is added. – A separate tiller axis is added. – 40+ cockpit controls sounds are added. – Window wipers sound is added. – CDU pop-ups are added. – The A/P disconnect sound is added. – PAX cabin on/off selection is added. – Fuel Flow is corrected. – VNAV speed/alt restrictions are fixed. – VNAV is improved. – Cost Index calculation is improved. – CI/Mach Number calculation is improved. – Cockpit sounds are improved. – The F/D bars readability is improved. – Seat belt chime volume is increased. – The Captain’s seat view is re-mapped to F9 hotkey. – The Manual is updated.

  20. Captain Sim has posted some new pics of their next release? I have a feeling this maybe a new 757, I remember reading an article a few years back that said they where thinking of completely remaking a new 757, then we heard nothing about it for years. The reason I say this is because they don't have their 75 or 767 on their updates list as far as I know. I could be completely and utterly wrong about this but see what you guys think????? https://www.facebook.com/captainsim/?hc_ref=ARQ0kS0UE70btIqShj3JIhJj1PQKPZnNy0LZfQIFtEKgA_UuT-ggmQmxXhVM423GJlw&fref=nf
  21. Not sure what this is, but so far 767 is the favorite guess LINK TO SOURCE: https://www.facebook.com/captainsim/photos/a.168362179846248.46042.115945288421271/1936993242983124/?type=3&theater
