Where are all the new addons?

Recommended Posts

Must be a doldrums sort of Summer....  I'm not seeing many new releases.  Orbx has been putting out some scenery but I'm specifically thinking of aircraft.  Where are they?  Perhaps devs are waiting to see how MSFS turns out?

Yep, I've been waiting to buy the Extreme Prototypes Lear once it's updated to V3.  Was supposed to happen last year... nothing but crickets.  Recently started looking elsewhere...

A2A offerings?  Maybe this fall?

I think it reflects the lack of people able and willing to program aircraft systems for flight sims. Scenery is a lot less demanding to produce and, as a whole, requires less expertise. Good aircraft can take years to perfect when only one or two are working on it. 😪

Personally, given that I do not have endless amounts of money, still have many good payware aircraft on my to buy list. I just pick one up here and there, some might call them old if they are a year or more in the past since launch date, but for me they are newbee's.

It definitely has felt like a slow summer and I would like to add a nice plane to the hanger. I’m still waiting on Orbx True Earth GB North, was hoping that was going to be a summer release.

My goodness.  I have so many in depth payware aircraft with all kinds of new features added such as ACARS  as well as emergency procedures I have a hard time deciding which one to choose at the beginning of each session. I call it multiple sim personality disorder.

Milviz ATR and Eaglesofts Challenger (wonder if they ever will be ready...)  would be nice additions.

I just want one payware developer to build a good quality rendition of EINN Shannon.

  • A Turbine Duke Redux
  • Any GA aircraft with an EDF1000
  • A2A/Milviz Beach Baron 58 with or without an EFG1000

In the entire fleet of P3D only 2 GA have the EDF the Carenado A36 and 406 and those are dated, give me the A2A 182 with an EDF1000 or the vFlyte Arrow III for P3D and I won't fly anything else.

I agree. I was expecting this summer to see the PMDG NG3, A2A Piper Cub and FSL A321 released. I still hope though..

Its my feeling that the Embraer Ejets Feelthere/Aeroplane Heaven combo is fairly close to release. That looks to be an attractive buy since they are fun to fly. The systems were pretty good on the old version.  Heres hoping. Maybe weeks to a few months is my hunch.

Meh.  At least for XP11 (my other sim) they can be better than the P3D versions.

This may be a factor in the future but I would be surprised if any developers would halt nearly complete projects at this point.

This is not the case, with zero information from MS at this stage in terms of their SDK and how they plan to work with 3rd party devs, the worse decision is to halt production, since we prefer we prefer to plan ahead instead everyone is carrying on as usual with their current product development road maps.

Even though there are very good options in terms of high fidelity aircraft there's so much room for improvement, from classics (e.g. 707, 727, DC-10, L1011, Comet, Tupolev, etc) to newer birds (I'd love to see a A350, E1/E2, MD-11, etc), but unfortunately aircraft is something much more complex to make. Good news is that there are quite a few in the queue.

Socata Rallye is coming (AH), this month perhaps.

Or marrakech or joburg. 

But fear not once they are released Justsim will make another version a month later
