And for example with disguises in carnival times and Papa Noel in Christmas.

Of course it will, with 50+ completely new different characters, of much higher quality, with all new animations.

The jump from 22 ( maximum allowed in FSX ) to 80-95 bones per skeleton makes all human animations way more realistic and, to make them less robotic, we added a new feature to our custom animation player which plays slightly different walking loops for each passenger, for example looking straight, left, right, picking up a phone, etc.

This, of course, resulted in requiring more time for us to do each passenger ( we could release GSX months ago if we just kept the old animations, but which good airplane would be using back then, other than the default A320/FBW ? ), but in the end it was worth it, since the overall crowd now looks so much better, and at those Walk-in gates, there will be a guy watching over the passengers with a notebook in hand.

Passengers will be likely the last preview we'll show, but there will be others between now and release.

The new baggage loading animation has also being remade from scratch, fully motion-captured live, with more variations in luggage (12 compared to 2 in P3D), a different character, and a completely brand new belt loader vehicle, were even the various warning *stickers* are correctly placed according to its real world user manual, with a visible moving belt.

In our previous preview video, the one with the Pushback, we only had one character, now we have four, two males and two females, with different voices depending not only on region, but also on gender.

Did I mentioned SimBrief integration ? We are working on it right now and, as of today we have:

- Safegate VGDS will show an ETD countdown from your currently loaded SimBrief plan, so the ground crew will know they have to hurry!

- The Passenger Number will be automatically set from SimBrief, so there will be no need to enter it manually, and no need to wait for airplane developers to integrate it with their own passenger count in the airplane.

- The Refueling will present another option, in addition to the usual 20%, 50% 70%, 100% etc. percentages, we now have an option to use Block Fuel planned on SimBrief.

But But But....  This is a flight simulator not a passenger simulator 😉  

I jest of course but couldn't resist with the other thread.

Umberto, this sounds incredible!  Nothing but improvements over the prior version, I can't wait!!
