    | 225 views

    Multi Crew Experience for X-Plane 11 & 10 now adds support for a popular aircraft, Flight Factor A320 in latest release.
    It provides a very flexible virtual first officer, making it possible to operate the aircraft in a "shared cockpit environment", without the need to beg someone to share a session with you..
    Nobody flies the heavies alone. Why should you.

    Fayence-Tourrettes Airfield (ICAO code: LFMF) is an airfield located 1.5 km south of Fayence and Tourrettes, two municipalities in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur. It is the headquarters of a famous gliding club : the "Association Aéronautique Provence Côte d'Azur" (AAPCA). 
    The field is reserved for the practice of gliding and the airfield became the first European center of gliding. 
    Built on 45 ha, it has three grass runway including one principal of 830 meters long for 45 meters wide.
    CONTENT:======================================
    The Fayence-Tourrettes Airfield scenery contains:
    - PhotoHD 25cm/pixel ground tiles over the entire airfield surface,
    - Ultra detailed 3D buildings with HD Photorealistic textures (images taken directly on the field),
    - Volumetric grass (3D),
    - Various vehicles as well as static planes and gliders,
    - Many other details adding immersion and realism to the scenery (Birds, Static characters, traffic signs ...),-
    - Night and Seasonal textures,
    - 100% compatible with France VFR and Orbx products (tested),
     
    And many other things to discover by yourself ! 
    For more information visit the Fayence-Tourrettes Airfield   Product Page.
    France VFR has released their Languedoc-Roussillon VFR 3DA Extension pack for P3Dv4 and FSX :

    This 3D photoreal scenery is an extension of the Languedoc-Roussillon VFR 3DA product and provides very realistic night texture and garden & Park new autogen.

    The new VFR Regional Extension Pack series was designed and developped to provide VFR flight an environment as realistic as possible. It is the result of years of experience and practice in flight simulation and 3D modeling.

    "VFR Regional" products embed all enhancements from the new 3DAutomation® technology developed by France VFR. This technology already allows to generate the most realistic and dense environments ever seen. It does not intend to model real world accurately but to create a copy "as real as it gets" on a massive scale. It will evolve to adapt to the needs and new data available.


    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

    - Night Ground textures from 0.8 to 1.20 meter / pixel resolution from IGN aerial photography reworked for an optimal visual rendition covering whole scenry area.
    - 3D light sources with halo covering whole scenery area.
    - New dynamic lighting : stadiums, downtowns, castles, churches…
    - Various airports and/or points of interest enhancements (depending on each scenery).
    - New vegetation autogen in all urban & suburban areas, villages, housing estate, gardens…
    - Geo-referenced data for maximum compatibility with future add-ons installed on the same area.
    - Development process 100% SDK specifications compliant, ensuring maximum compatibility with new releases.

    A Pilots Life From SimBitWorld

    | 434 views

    A Pilots Life is an application with the aim of giving purpose to flight simulation enthusiasts. It is a simulation of a commercial pilot career, taking you from the first steps of a junior first officer employed at a local small company, to a senior captain at a world-renowned airline. In the beginning you will be offered a job at an airline and you will generate your schedule. As you progress and complete the flights that were assigned to you, you will earn money and experience (XP) based on flight time and number of flights completed, advance in pilot rankings, receive offers from other airlines and most importantly, you will have fun doing this.
     
    The development:
    The software was developed from the ground up, with some clear ideas in mind: simple, stable, automated, secure (SSAS for short). One of its most important features is the auto-update mechanism, which relieves you from the burden of downloading and installing the application each time we make changes to it (we still have a lot of ideas to implement, so expect plenty of updates in the months to come).
     
    Features:
    - dashboard with an overview of your situation as a pilot (flight hours, XP, current bank account status)
    - realistic salary based on your rating and current employer
    - job market with auto generated offers and realistic job application mechanism
    - real flight schedules generator based on your current employer
    - flight logging and flight landing rate recorder (that impacts your XP gain)
    - ability to advance in pilot rankings and get employed at prestigious airlines
    - safe login mechanism with encrypted password
    - serial number validation
    - settings for your convenience
    - embedded manual
    - ticketing system (for feature suggestion and reporting bugs)

    iFly and Flight One Software are proud to announce that the iFly 737NG High Definition Texture Pack for P3Dv4 has been released.  The free HD Texture Pack for Prepar3d version 4 includes texture improvements and additions to the P3Dv4 version of their award-winning iFly 737NG.  Here are the new features included in the package:
     
     
    HD textures applied to VC.  HD textures applied to exterior of the aircraft Ground Power Unit modeled (aircraft battery will charge when ground power is connected). FWD OVHD panel font now models real world. Option to Enable or Disable High Resolution Displays using the Configuration Tool. Proper operation of the SPEEDBRAKE ARMED light and other minor fixes. High definition Texture Paint-kit released.  
     
    The iFly Jets: The 737NG is a super sophisticated and complete 737NG addon for Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D. High accuracy simulation of the cockpit and systems, along with features such as ground support and push back, make this a premier expansion for P3D. The product has been tested by real NG pilots to help maintain the accuracy required for this simulation.
     
     
    This product offers quite an extensive fleet covering the NG range. This includes the 737NG 600, 700, 700ER, 800, and 900, 900ER, plus the BBJ, BBJ2, and BBJ3. There are several variations among this fleet that you can customize via the configuration manager, including jet engine types, and wingtips.

    Vertx Flight , a new flight sim aircraft developer will soon be releasing their first product, the Diamond DA62 for Prepar3D  v4.
    The Vertx DA62 G1000 PFD has been created using 3D gauge modelling techniques to deliver a PFD with unmatched clarity and animation smoothness.
    The G1000 flight planner allows creation, saving and loading of flight plans, as well as compatibility with the built-in P3D flight planner. All of the G1000 autopilot modes have been realistically modelled, including enroute vertical navigation, LPV approaches with glideslope, pitch hold, enroute turn anticipation, course-wheel-steering, plus much more. Accurate Direct-to and OBS mode have been simulated.
    The exterior and interior feature crystal clear 4K textures with night lighting and dimmable panel back-lighting.
    An advanced flight model includes features such as a custom-coded stall and spin routine, custom-coded single engine flight modelling with realistic VMC behaviour, as well as advanced engine and electrical system modelling.
    The virtual cockpit uses a wholly custom-coded sound engine providing many improvements over the standard P3D sound engine. Features include more realistic stereo panning and separation, high propeller angle-of-attack sound effects, and the pitch (or frequency) of the sounds are accurately tied to RPM rather than manifold pressure as is usually the case with piston powered aircraft in P3D. Also included are sounds for all switches and levers, G1000 annunciations, doors plus much more.
    High framerates have been made a priority and so far our beta testers are reporting good results in that regard.
    Vertx Flight anticipate a release within the next few weeks. Stay tuned for further updates!

    VATSIM Previews New Audio Codec

    | 425 views

    VATSIM have revealed an all-new voice system is currently undergoing beta testing.
    The new system brings a complete ultra-low latency, crisp, clear VHF simulation to VATSIM. Features include realistic range and static effects based on line-of-sight calculations, as well as realistic 'blocking' when two or more stations transmit simultaneously based on their proximity to receiving stations.
    The new codec will work with all currently available pilot and ATC clients and is currently undergoing closed beta testing.
