My guess, next week.

my guess is another 6 months at least. Anyway I like the Fenix team for their special dedicated work to the A3XX series, it's not just marketing.

Missing the PMDG DC6 in MSFS 2020 (she's here, but...).

Dave just posted quite some info on discord on their "Crayon Club" members working on liveries

Quote

Hi @everyone - As we draw closer to release, one thing we've not yet touched on is liveries. Something we didn't expect during initial development and release of the aircraft back in 2022 was just how much importance people would place on accurate liveries with details such as correct stickers, wing outlines, and of course, cabins. For Block 2 we felt it important to really embrace this, and as such we decided our current in-house approach wasn't going to cut it; the quality of some third party liveries appearing online would take our poor painter years to replicate across the entire set of planned liveries. With this in mind, we put out a request for painters interested in working alongside us for Block 2, and boy did I have to double-take when I saw some of the names popping up! So without further ado, let me introduce our new painting team (lovingly referred to internally as 'The Crayon Club').

What this all means is the liveries we bring you for Block 2 will be some of the highest quality, and most customised, that have ever been released with an aircraft for Flight Simulator.

Now all this quality _does_ come at a cost, we aren't rushing out 300+ liveries to inflate our numbers, instead we're doing the opposite, and allowing the painting team to take their time in creating high quality, fully customised liveries. This means at release there won't be quite the selection as there was in Version 1 (still over 75 of the most popular liveries), but the accuracy and amount of detail included in each of them will be much greater, and make each airframe and airline feel unique. As of right now, not every livery features a custom cabin but our goal is to eventually get to that point with as many as we have reference for. After release we'll post regularly updates here to round-up the latest livery additions, which we expect will keep trickling in for many months, as the Livery Tracker has over 2000 potential liveries to paint.

 

Some examples, for more pictures and better quality please visit their discord

That looks juicy…

We urgently need a Simbrief layout for SAS and Jetstar.

Been a gentleman I have to keep faith as promised. It's not possible to completely delete an account here actually. But I ask mods to deactivate it. 🙋🏻‍♂️

As @bobcat999 said, I hope you will not leave.  A bet like that is just for fun.

I like that you have views that are often at odds with "the majority".  Forums need people like that, otherwise we are all just 'violently in agreement', which is pretty dull.

So I hope you'll see the bet for what it was, and stay here.

We shouldn't be chasing members here to close accounts, because of (i) a joke bet, and (ii) we disagree with them mostly.   That's not a sign of a healthy community.  And despite all the drama that any FS foum entails, I believe this is a healthy community, bound by our common obsession.... err, I mean interest. 😄

I appreciate I'm really behind and not in the 'know' here (no Discord!), but do we get the update via the Fenixsim A320 app, or will it require an unistall and fresh reinstall, via a d/l from the Fenix website?

Agree totally with this, it would be a sad world if everyone agreed on everything. There always needs to be a healthy difference of opinion.

This.

On their roadmap is an incremental updater, but it's not part of B2.

Holy macaroni some of these liveries are amazing. I love the interior cabin, but the Etihad and SAS liveries are particularly appealing to me.

Does Block 2 cost extra money if I already bought the original? Will it work with FS2Crew or will I have to buy another FS2Crew version?

I see Jviation as part of the Fenix paint team. I fly for SWA Virtual and I have all his 737 paints. He does an outstanding job. Glad to see him represent the US liveries.
