Teaser: Are you Prepar3d twice for Reality XP Garmin?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Last time I've unveiled a number of details about our upcoming Garmin GNS V2 and GTN Touch for FS9, FSX, FSX-SE, P3D1, P3D2, P3D3, and P3D4, in 64/32 bits (what I usually call FS-SEX3D). 

I've also hinted further down the discussion about how the user experience is paramount to the total experience of a Reality XP product. 

Today, I'm pleased to illustrate our vision about aircraft panel configuration and what is to become your first-hand experience with our product. We want you to feel confortable from the get go.

Obviously I know the most advanced users among you will feel at-home opening the panel.cfg file in notepad, nevertheless, there are times you just want to click-click-fly and there is no better way that leaving this task to the hand of your Reality XP assistant!

First things first: there is no longer a separate programs to run, nor a simulator to close prior changing your aircraft panel. Your key entry to the assistant is this entry in the add-ons menu*.

 

Right from the loaded aircraft cockpit, just select the menu to open the assistant:

p3d_config1.jpg

 

This opens a task-oriented assistant presenting contextual options:

p3d_config2.png

 

The next step usually consists in choosing what to do next:

p3d_config5.png

 

Finally, the assistant reviews the proposed changes before you 'Accept':

When you click Accept, it saves the changes to your aircraft panel.cfg file, and automatically reloads your aircraft, ready to fly with your brand new Reality XP GNS V2 and Reality XP GTN Touch!

I thank you all for the warm welcome and support! 

* with FS9, the menu appears in the popup menu when you right-click a window.

Not now, but from the look of it really close to! We're targeting the next few days for a release, if there are no major showstopper!

I'm really excited for this.  I hope it'll be integrated in the A2A Comanche fast.  :happy:

We've finally managed to correct all known bugs and implement all features yesterday. You have no idea how complex the panel system is sometimes and the headaches to make a useful assistant (well you have an idea because you are monitoring this forum and you can see we are farther from August 1st).

Nevertheless,  the assistant goes beyond the few screenshots above. It noticeably include a feature to auto-detect any GPS gauge (of the same type as the GNS for the GNS V2) and is able to help in replacing most, if not all, panel / gauges situations. It even includes 'manual' overrides if needed.

Believe me, this was the hardest part to do: there are so many differrent ways to configure gauges I the panel.cfg file.

Will this be a package of 750 and 650 or will they be sold separate? Also what are the advantages of this over the Flight 1 version?

If I'm not mistaking, I'm guessing a major advantage will be cross fill capabilities out of the box. And ofcourse everything shown above. But I'll let the developers chime in now
