  1. Scenery updated to 1.1 (P3D V3 and V4) with SODE animated jetways. SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://secure.simmarket.com/jetstream-designs-little-rock-national-airport-2014-for-fsx.phtml NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  2. A user on Reddit (Link 1) just posted something worrying about the FSL A320 installer which apparently contains a password dumping tool related to the users Chrome activities. How true or false this claim is something to be confirmed by FSL themselves which I am sure will be revealed in a public announcement soon. The above was then confirmed on Belynz (Matt Davies) Twitch stream & Discord where users confirmed the existence of such a file which could be used to the users disadvantage. Matt then contacted Lefteris Kalamaras (FSL) via Skype and was promptly responded to in private (phone call) explaining the situation. However, Matt denied to comment on the matter and only hinted at a possible misunderstanding of the real use of such a file. FSL will soon provide a public announcement regarding the matter and with all things considered, this could just be an anti-piracy tool from FSL to detract piracy of their product upon detection of any modification to their installer. Someone had started a thread a few days back (Link 2) requesting help for exactly this issue but it was resolved with a simple answer saying, "You should disable your anti-virus completely when installing if it’s causing issues." There is now a thread on FSL forums regarding this matter but no official response at the time of writing this post. (Link 3) In my honest opinion, while FSL may find a technicality to justify the existence of this malicious software in their installer, it still seems like a severe breach of trust, especially after seeing the response by the beta tester to a user who found this file a few days back, and no amount of justification should allow such practices to be continued. While this will definitely split the community into two, those that are okay with its nefarious purpose in the name of DRM and those that find it extremely unethical, I wholeheartedly am against such protocols being injected into products without prior consent or the user being made aware at the point of purchase. What do you think? Should such protocols be allowed at all? Is this is a viable method to stop piracy? It may be even considered illegal in some countries. UPDATE: FSL has now released a public announcement (Developer Post Link 1) regarding the matter and it is indeed correct that this file is being dumped to the user system (whether a genuine customer or not) without explicit consent of the user. Confirmed by a developer of ProjectFLY: "The malware is placed on your SYSTEM at the point of execution of the installer. Whether it does anything or not is irrelevant. Malware is being placed on the computer without explicit consent of the end user." As a customer of the FSL A320, I am disappointed in their methodology and lack of transparency regarding the matter.@OMGEDSON , I'd like to request you and others in your weekly 'On Approach' show to discuss this matter at length and provide some feedback on what your thoughts are regarding such practices (guilty until proven innocent). I'd still like to see FSL make an honest and genuine apology. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Developer of ProjectFly has posted a comprehensive statement regarding his findings and why consumers should not accept this in any shape or form.
