  1. As TrueEarth development continues, Orbx is dropping further details on their upcoming TrueEarth US projects and beyond. In particular, John Venema has detailed which areas we can expect work to be developed and also the inclusion of new PBR models and cityscapes. So far, John confirmed, over 800 points of interest (POI) 3D models are planned for Washington State alone. These objects will be created using the latest PBR technology. Furthermore, there are plans to include many PBR cityscapes as well within these North American TrueEarth projects. The same details will also be included in further American TrueEarth projects in the future. In the past, we’ve heard that Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and California were to be released as TrueEarth products in the future. John has now broken that down into the areas we can expect: PNW Washington – Seattle, Bellevue, Everett, Tacoma, Olympia, Spokane, Victoria BC PNW Oregon – Portland, Eugene PNW British Columbia – Vancouver, Richmond, Surrey, Nanaimo Northern California – San Francisco, Alameda, Silicon Valley, San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento Southern California – Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Diego, Santa Maria, Long Beach Further to that, John also shared what future projects may look like. There are plans well into 2020 for TrueEarth projects including New Zealand South and North, Spain, Austria, Norway and New England Martimes. All of the information can be found via the Orbx forums. There are already a variety of TrueEarth projects available for Prepar3D, X-Plane 11 and Aerofly FS 2.

  2. Not long ago, HiFi Simulations gave the first concrete details regarding their upcoming Active Sky for X-Plane. Many fans were excited to see how the weather engine would impact the simulation. On a brand new page dedicated to the product, HiFi has shown off new screenshots and revealed some brand new details. As previously mentioned, it is planned to be released in December 2018. It is currently being put through release candidate testing right now with a release soon to follow. As far as pricing, the team revealed that the initial price is planned to be $39.99. This will be a special discounted price to say thanks to the fans who have stuck by the team over the years. HiFi confirmed that the price will eventually increase. As with other Active Sky products, the team intend to release updates throughout the lifecycle of the product. These updates are likely to be quality of life updates, but they will be provided free of charge. The details of what these updates provide have yet to be determined. However, just like FSX/P3D users have been used to, major version changes will see either a new product being released or a charge being applied to update. If their record of FSX/P3D products holds the same though, then these updates will be significant and offer good value for money. As for current users of FSX/P3D products, there will not be any cross-grade discount. This is down to the cost and 3 year development lead the product has had.

  4. Cross The Pond 2018 Eastbound Details Announced VATSIM’s busiest bi-annual event, Cross The Pond 2018 Eastbound, is right around the corner. The planning team have announced important details for you to take note of over on the forum. For those not yet informed, Cross The Pond (CTP for short) is a bi-annual event on the VATSIM network that’s been taking place for over a decade. It’s a transatlantic crossing between set departure and arrival airports, though set time slot must be booked in order to participate. Full ATC coverage, including oceanic, is provided throughout the duration of the event. This year, there’s a bit of a twist with four arrival airports rather than five or more versus five departure airports. In addition, there’s also a new departure airport on the list, Denver International (KDEN). Having Denver being further away from the others, departure slots from there will run from 1000z to 1300z. Over 500 slots will be open for booking on Saturday 20th October at 1700z at the new CTP website. Their new site contains an abundance of information to get you ready for CTP including FAQs and a transatlantic operations checklist. VATSIM mention that they are looking forward to another enjoyable event and thank the partner airports, ACCs/ARTCCs and divisions for their hard work. Cross The Pond will take place on Saturday 27th October; below, you’ll find a list of the departure and arrival airports.

  5. FSWeekend in Lelystad, The Netherlands – Event Details Shortly after Cosford another flightsim event is coming up: FSWeekend in Lelystad, The Netherlands. FSWeekend is located at the Dutch aviation museum Aviodrome, next to Lelystad airport. The event will take place on the 3rd and 4th of November. A lot of flightsim groups will attend the event at Lelystad. Along with IVAO and VATSIM divisions, companies like Laminar Research and Aerosoft will also be present. This event might especially be worth it for cockpitbuilders as there will be multiple groups and suppliers at the event. There will also be a total of three lectures at the event. A full overview of the exhibitors can be found via this link. Times & Tickets Tickets to the event are € 10,- if you buy before october 28, only via this link. If you decide to get a ticket at the museum on the day of arrival you will have to pay € 16,95 for adults, for children until age 11 the entrance fee is € 14,95. Children below the age of 3 will be admitted for free. Please keep in mind that you will able to visit the museum at the same time. The event is open from 10:00 till 17:00. How to get to the event For those of us that want to join the event but are arriving internationally: There is a direct train from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Lelystad Centrum station. From there you can take bus 7 to the entrance of the museum. The total travel time is about 1:10 hour from the airport, public transportation information can be found at 9292.nl. There are also multiple hotels around Lelystad and the airport. Make sure you book a hotel close to a train station or a bus stop if you are relying on public transport.

  6. Time to give this one it's own topic (I'll make one for the A320/A321 as well but for some reason that won't load at this moment). As explained while the graphical work on the A330 is progressing nicely we want to have the A320/A321 out first and have the A318/A319 on the same system status (SP1) as well. So we are not thinking about dates. But so many of the systems have been done already and so many others are the same as in the smaller busses we do not see major issues at this moment. It's just a lot of work, not a lot of unexpected surprises. As you can see from the images, the modeling standard is VERY high, on the same level as the A318/A319 Virtual Cockpit. You can see what the advantage of doing an aircraft directly for 64 bits is, If we would work with a 32 bit model we would never dream of this level of detail and in P3d V4.3, compiled with the very latest compilers the framerates are simply fine. It's a new dawn for the simulator if you start fresh! The images that follow are renders from the 3d tools. in the sim that rendering engine smooth things out a bit and generally makes it look better. Keep that in mind. The prices have not been fully set but should be in the same ballpark as the A318/A319/A320/A321 and there will be a modest discount for people who own any of the current busses because we reuse some parts from the current project (and you know we never ask you to pay more then one time for a file).
