  1. KPDX Gets New Features + Fixes KPDX Updated! Version 1.1 adds new content and fixes a couple bugs Today, we released a new update for KPDX for P3Dv4 that adds some new stuff and fixes a couple of minor glitches. What's New? The airport fire station complex and fuel tanks have been added to the NW corner of the airport Dynamic SODE-driven windsocks with custom animations have been added (how did we miss that?) A custom model of the Glenn Jackson (I-205) bridge has been added, with night lighting and custom traffic flow Lots more autogen trees added to the photoreal area of North Portland In addition, we fixed a few hatch marks on the ground poly that got somehow bumped out of place before the final export, and added the trees back into an autogen tile for Orbx KVUO that overlapped with KPDX. How do I get the update? It couldn't be simpler. If you're one of the many who already own KPDX, launch the Flightbeam Manager and click the KPDX tab. There will be a link to follow to auto-update your version. If you don't have KPDX yet, the changes are now folded into the full installer, which you can purchase at https://iblueyonder.com/portfolio/kpdx-hd/. What if I don't care about P3Dv4 add-ons? So glad you asked! We just updated our mailing list system with a new set of sub-groups that allow you to set your preference for what sim platforms you want to hear about. To set your preference, go to your My Account page on iBlueYonder.com and fill in the "Join Our Mailing List" form at the top of the page. Since you're receiving this, you're already on the list. Submitting the form will update your record, and you won't be bothered with stuff you don't want to see anymore. Get Your KPDX Now SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  2. Two Major X-Plane 11.30 Features If you've decided you no longer want these emails, you can unsubscribe at any time. Hello there! Beta testers are currently helping us track down bugs and issues in X-Plane 11.30. We have a couple major changes that are in 11.30 to highlight this month, so that everyone's ready for them once we can release a clean, stable version. 11.30 Features Autopilot Updates X-Plane 11.30 includes quite a few autopilot changes. A new S-Tec 55, which is a high-end general aviation dual-axis rate-based digital autopilot, in now installed in the default Cessna 172, and we have a video tutorial on how to use it. ATC Updates A new and more powerful ATC voice system is included in the update as well! Check out this tutorial video on how to interact with X-Plane's ATC system, including the new changes in 11.30. Upcoming Events X-Plane will be in attendance at FSWeekend in Lelystadt on 3 & 4 November. We'll be showcasing X-Plane in VR at a booth, and we'll also have presentations on Friday and Saturday. Featured Add Ons This month brought more great new addon releases, including two new scenery packs and two aircraft. Gateway News Scenery artist Anthony Dyer is on a mission to provide 3D scenery for all of the UK's airports. What motivates you to develop X-Plane scenery? It kind of grew, as hobbies do, from satisfying my desire to fill in a few empty airports to the objective of making sure every airport under National Air Traffic Service (NATS) control in the UK was included in 3D. With every airport, attention to detail was important. I wanted to make airports that were enjoyable to fly to repeatedly. So If I could see a detail on the satellite image, no matter how insignificant, it had to go into the flight simulator. I think hobbies in the United Kingdom are things that we treat very seriously, whether it's gardening, photography or in my case the prior two as well as airport building. For me when I'm traveling on assignment, it's been a very accessible hobby and one I can do almost anywhere in the world whenever I have some spare time. I've also found that when I've showed off my work to friends and colleagues who aren't into flight simulators, a lot of them appreciate it. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that everyone goes flying on commercial airliners these days, so they can all relate to a particular airport. If they see it in a virtual rendering, it makes them smile and that matters a lot. (This interview has been edited and condensed for space. Read the full interview here!)

  3. Laminar Research Shares More 11.30 Update Features Recently posted in the developer blog for X-Plane, Ben Supnik shared two small details about what we can expect in the future from X-Plane 11’s upcoming 11.30 update 4K Panels: In the new update, developers can utilise the higher 4k resolution of panels for their aircraft, to allow for more details and better graphics from their custom, plugin-based textures. It is important to note though, that smooth performance cannot be promised from loading such a high resolution into the aircraft’s systems. Cockpit Objects: 11.30 will allow developers to utilise a single .obj (object) file for loading the cockpits of their aircraft, so no duplicated are required for products that are released with varying fuselages or engine types for the same cockpit. Plane-Maker will also automatically reconfigure old aircraft to follow the new setup of having the cockpit object listed as a ‘misc’ object within the menus, so developers need not worry about manually updating this. That’s all for now; more news to come regarding 11.30 as we get it.
