prepar3d / fsx IndiaFoxtEcho Updates F-35 Lightning for P3D v4.4

Recommended Posts


Developer IndiaFoxtEcho has released an update for their F-35 Lightning package that includes PBR.

In a post on their website, an extensive changelog describes the rebuilt internal and external models and the inclusion of PBR. In order to accomplish this update, the source models were completely rebuilt, resulting in, what the developer says, is a much better looking plane.

Because the model files were compiled with P3D v4.4 tools, they cannot be used in earlier versions of P3D or in FSX. However, the developer has included non-PBR models for those who may prefer them. Moving forward, the project will only be updated for P3D v4.4.

The update can be obtained here or from the site.


CHANGE LOG Version 3.60

  • Rebuilt all external and internal models to support PBR textures
  • All models recompiled using P3Dv4.4 tools
  • Updated landing gear model
  • Fixed minor UVW coordinates error on F-35C external model
  • Fixed minor graphic glitches in F-35B and F-35C external models
  • Major rewrite of MFD code with reduced memory footprint and (marginal) performance improvement
  • New .air files to provide better, more linear throttle vs. thrust curve
  • Fixed several glitches in the FCS code
  • FCS Animation code rewritten
  • Fixed bug that caused the first radar track not to show in some screens

This update by default is configured to use PBR models and work with P3Dv4.4.
You can use this update also with P3Dv4.0 to P3Dv4.3 by deleting the model.cfg files in the model folder of each aircraft and rename the “model.cfg.BackupNonPBR” to “model.cfg”.
