Feelthere E-jets for P3D4?

Recommended Posts

I posted about this over at the Feelthere forum on simflight.com, but have not had any response from them.  

Has anyone heard anything about them updating this product for P3D4?

Considering they didn't update for P3D versions 1-3, I wouldn't hold your breath.

i had a thread going in there. There is interest and support for a more modern model, but only reply back was its being considered. the current version is obviously dead for V4 and its not 64bit and highly unlikely they would just make it  compatible unfortunately.

A shame cause those EMBs are fun to fly.

I wouldn't hold my breath either for any time soon.

Thanks to all!  I love flying the E-jets!  Too bad there's nothing for P3D4.

I don't think they're interested, most of their development is into their Tower products, that's all they've been pushing recently.

Even though I love their E-jet series, I am extremely disappointed in their lack of communication about this product.  It is their prerogative to either continue developing this product or not.  However, for all the people who have purchased this product, it would be nice to know where they stand.  Are they no longer developing it?  Are they planning to in the future?  Or, maybe they just don't know at this point?  Regardless of what their plans are, it would be nice for them to extend the courtesy of communicating those plans with their customers.  

There!  Got that off my chest!

I don't think Alex Koster-something is with Feelthere anymore. He did all the heavy lifting on the Ejets so I doubt they're left with enough talent to update the planes.

Didn't Realair do some work on these Ejets?

Jim Rhoads over at Flight1 explains this rather nicely. Wear something fireproof.

Twenty6, you got a link about Jim Rhoads's explanation?  I'd appreciate it.

I can't find it. Might have been deleted. And I believe it was in the GTN750 licensed forum so a link wouldn't really help unless you have access to that forum.

If I can paraphrase (and someone correct me if I'm wrong,) Mr. Rhoads explained that he is under no obligation to explain anything to anyone about anything. It's his bat and ball and if you don't like it ... tuff.

In all fairness to Jim Rhoads, there were a multiple of threads asking "where's the GTN750/650 for P3D4," and this one seemed more demanding than most. It might have been better to not reply at all.

Back to the Ejets.

Hi Folks,

I purchased both the ERJ and EMB packages at the same time (a sale) - the ERJ pack was by far the best of the two commercial Embraer packs - the EMB package just gathered dust after a couple of flights... I flew the wings off that little regional beast and that's the one I would truly like to see carried forward... I loved the FADEC and it was a hoot to fly...

The EMB advertised FDE by Rob Young - but we had a thread years ago discussing the FDE and Rob publically stated the FDE was seriously modified after his work and took no credit/responsibility for it...

I had thought the ERJ FDE was made by the gentleman from Mud Pond (can't think of his name at the moment) - he does a bunch of work for Flight 1 FDE models which I tend to like - I know he did the Coolsky MD-80 which was another favorite...

Yeah - hated leaving my Embraer behind - maybe the new AS CRJ will fill that niche...

Regards,
Scott

I actually have the ERJ series too, through Steam.  I agree it's a fascinating plane to fly and enjoy it very much.  Personally I prefer the E-jets, but to each his own.  

I guess there isn't anything else to say in this thread except to repeat that I just wish the developers would let us know what is planned if anything.  I'm repeating myself, so happy flying to all.

highly unlikely, are they going to make ERJ V2 instead?

If you are looking closely on their facebook page, they say in many comments: "It may come sooner than you think". But it wasn't clear if they were talking about the E-Jets or the ERJs... both would be very welcome (With up to date graphics and a paint kit).

Hope it's the ERJs!   I absolutely flew the wings off the feelThere ERJ135 and 145, right up until a month ago when I ditched FSX for good in favour of P3Dv4 and XP11.    I sometimes have amazing dreams where they re-texture the VCs and release the ERJs for P3Dv4 :biggrin:   Even the original c.2009 textures would be better than nothing though.     

I must say, I'd be surprised to see either happen - to be honest I thought feelThere were long dead and buried, considering they haven't released a FS addon for around 7 years.

Me too, but in their facebook comments they seem quite confident, that it may happen very soon. So they might be in for a surprise like Level-D a few months ago... A proper P3D v4 version could brng some easy money for them... I don't expect a free upgrade there...

Try the Virtualcol E Jets. For the price, I think they're OK. Fly them all the time...

Wow cool. Didnt see that before.  Hopefully "sooner than you think" means the last half of this year. 

Think quite a few would be interested to buy the Ejets for V4 and happily pay for it.

Hello,

We have some news here. The E-Jets v2 are ready for P3Dv4. It's a pure compatibility update.

Just a compatibility update, and they say they are charging $24.99?? I don't quite understand this, as pretty much all of the compatibility updates from other developers have been free...

Or am I missing something?
