  10. 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! Sean Moloney, Vertx Simulations

  14. PMDG has released their 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion Pack for Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D & FSX Developed over 5 years and building upon all of the award-winning features of the 747-400 v3 Queen of the Skies II, the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion Pack is packed with high technology. PMDG have included both the -8 passenger and -8F Freighter variant in this single package. No less than 35 pages of detailed options from the world's 747-8 fleets are modelled. From the highly visible ones like antenna types and position all the way to obscure cockpit display and FMC options that real-world crews will recognize, it is the most complete set of options ever placed into an FSX/P3D addon FEATURES Complete From the Start All variants of the 747-8 are included. These include the 747-8 passenger model and the 747-8F Freighter model. Both models are equipped with the GEnx-2B67B engines along with their own accurately modelled performance data. Exterior Models Exterior models are richly detailed with complex Leading Edge Devices and flap mechanisms unique to the 747-8, realistic articulating main gear trucks, wing flex that reflects the ground bumps while taxing, as well as realistic in-flight flex modeling. Texturing work is beautiful, with just the right amount of shine. Virtual Cockpit The Virtual Cockpit includes dozens of physical layout options: ADF, ISFD, RMIs, push to talk and taxi light options, and many more that are specific to aircraft model type as well as airline/operator specific options. The VC's geometric modeling work is amazingly complete, accurate down to fractions of an inch as measured in the real cockpit. PMDG Rain Maker (Available only in Prepar3D version 4.3 and higher.) RainMaker is a new feature which PMDG are debuting in the PMDG 747-8i/F. It is a dynamic rain, snow and fog effects generator and visual enhancement system that will show various weather effects on the windows of the virtual cockpit. These meteorological effects can in turn be affected by the aircraft's systems, including window heat and windshield wipers, as well as by specific meterorological conditions. RainMaker operates in its own ecosystem, and uses the simulator’s airplane and meteorological data to generate the various precipitation effects mentioned above. Current effects included in RainMaker are rain, snow and condensation. You'll even discover some bug splats based on a number of meteorological conditions, for example, seasonal, temperature, altitude and so forth. Airport Map Display The Airport Map Display function allows the crew to display the airport environment around the aircraft, with the aircraft positioned on top of the map to aid in situational awareness. Electronic Flight Bag The Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is a new feature to our product lines, introduced in the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II in order to bring an additional layer of immersion into the sim. The EFB is a central hub for performance calculations, charts, reference documents, and pilot utilities. Electronic Checklist For those familiar with our 777 aircraft, you will be right at home with the ECL on the 747-8 although there are minor differences in the interface. By default, the ECL allows you to click on the items as if the screen were a touch screen. In reality, the ECL is controlled by the cursor control wheel at the top corner of the throttles. The advanced Electronic Check List (ECL) system is included and fully functional for all normal and abnormal modes. The ECL will walk you very easily through all phases of flight and will provide you with detailed step-by-step guidance through how to handle any message that appears as a result of mechanical failure, from a failed fuel pump to a complete catastrophic engine failure, the ECL is your friend. Follow those steps and you will have the airplane reconfigured to complete the mission in no time at all. New with the 747-8 are interactive checklists that will prompt you for deferred items to be accomplished later in a flight if necessary when handling non-normal situations. Additionally, PMDG have modeled all of the trouble-shooting checklists associated with hard-to-nail-down failures in the airplane that may not be immediately obvious to the crew, but that may impact your ability to complete a long-haul flight. Vertical Situation Display New to the 747 family of aircraft is the Vertical Situation Display. This tool is designed to enhance crew awareness of the aircraft’s position relative to the vertical profile of their flight. In addition, the VSD will show you the airplane’s relationship to terrain along the intended flight path, which will help to provide additional confidence and decision-making clarity when flying into areas surrounded by steep terrain at night and inclement weather. PMDG Service Vehicles Have your 747-8 serviced by an entire fleet of PMDG Service vehicles. Each vehicle for a specific ground task is included. These are: Aircraft hydrant fuel pumper, catering and cabin service trucks that lift to the cabin doors, air-stair trucks, a bulk cargo loader, standard size hi-lift loaders for the lower deck cargo holds as well as the large hi-lift loader for the SCD and nose doors of the freighter models. Need the water tanks filled? A water truck will roll up to the aircraft along with a lavatory servicing vehicle to empty waste. You also get tail stands for the freighters, single and dual-plug GPU carts, terminal power units, as well as air start and air conditioning carts. Everything needed to service your airplane on the ground is included in the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion Package! PMDG Operations Center Includes the PMDG Operation Center, a stand-alone application which manages livery downloads and installations, documentation, support and more. The OC also supports the PMDG Jetstream 4100, PMDG 737NGX and PMDG 777. PMDG update this application frequently to add new features and functionality. New for the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II is micro-update capability directly through the OC. PMDG intend to update the aircraft frequently through this feature rather than using new installers or service packs. FMC The flight management computer (FMC) contains all of the real life 747-8 FMC features including LNAV, extremely accurate VNAV speed and altitude predictions and the full complement of scratchpad warning messages that a real crew could see. RTE 2 is modelled and fully usable, as are advanced features like step-climbs, constant speed cruise and required time of arrival (RTA). IAN approaches are supported. Flight Model Engine and flight modeling is within 5% of the actual Boeing aircraft performance charts, including data and parameters specific to the GEnx-2B67B engine types. Autopilot Ultra smooth autopilot flight director system (AFDS) created for the 747 that replicates the precise yet smooth feeling you get from the real thing. Created with hours of video taken in the real airplane and actual 747-8 full flight simulator flying experience. Weather Radar The PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II features a working simulation of the Collins WXR-2100 weather radar. In conjunction with the Active Sky Next weather engine addon, the radar depicts actual precipitation returns (not clouds!) and gives you full control over tilt, gain and radar mode including turbulence and windshear detection. Integration with additional radar products such as REX WX Advantage coming soon! Sounds A meticulously created soundset consisting of over 1400 individual files captures the raw power of the GEnx-2B67B engines and cockpit environment. Every aspect of the engines is represented here, exactly pitch matched to real life recordings made at every 10% over the engine’s power range. Many cockpit sounds have multiple files behind them that are randomly selected to make each click sound subtly different, just like they do in the real world. Multiple soundsets exist including detailed modelling behind and in-front of the wing views. A new fully custom playback system allows for manipulation of the engine sounds as altitude and airspeed rise, allowing the slipstream to take over just as it does in real life. Two separate sets of ground crew calls are included and it will be possible in the future to create new sets yourself! Note: stereo soundset included, 5.1 soundset will be made available post-release. Cockpit Shaking Modeling A fully customized and realistic simulation of cockpit camera shake is included. This feature reacts realistically to the environment on the ground during taxi, takeoff and landing, as well as in-flight due to turbulence, stall buffet, speedbrake application and engine failure or stall. RAAS Fully functional Runway Awareness and Advisory System which calls out runway names and other information for improved flight safety. User Interface PMDG spared no effort in making the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II easy to use in terms of its user interface. The aircraft’s fuel, payload and the large number of airframe and cockpit options are adjustable on the fly from the FMC CDU without ever touching the FSX menus or pausing the sim. Exterior Lighting 3D volumetric exterior lighting that lights up the FS scenery. You can even see the flash from the strobe lights when looking out the cockpit side windows. Improved over what was implemented in the PMDG 777. Dynamic Exterior Lighting (Available only in Prepar3D version 4.0 and higher.) Dynamic exterior lighting that lights up the FS scenery. You can even see the flash from the strobe lights when looking out the cockpit side windows. Physics Based Wing Flex For the first time PMDG have included a fully physics-based wing flex model. The wings will sag while on the ground, depending on how much fuel is in them. While in flight, the wings will be lifted upward by the amount of lift being generated, but bent in a characteristic way under the significant weight of the aircraft.  Environmental factors are also included in the calculations, so turbulence and gusts will also influence the wing flex behavior. As the wings react to these environmental factors, the engines and engine pylons will as well. Liveries Free downloadable liveries for numerous world airlines, easily installable using the Livery Downloader within the PMDG Operations Center application. At the time of release, 52 liveries are available in the OC with more being added every day. Documentation Includes everything you will need to operate the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II. PMDG also included a 203 page introduction manual specific to the simulation and a 113 page tutorial flight to learn from as you fly. Visit the 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion Pack Homepage for further details . *Product tested with Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v3.4 and up. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OLDER VERSIONS OF PREPAR3D
