Microsoft Flight Simulator Fenix A320, Concorde, F-16, & Hammerfest Bought Screenshots & Movies; Olsztyn-Mazury & Palma Airports Launched


Third-party builders have revealed model new property of upcoming add-ons and a pair extra have been launched.

Firstly, we get a growth replace from Fenix about its Airbus A320. We get to see the Mexicana, Condor, and Asiana liveries, on prime of the EFB (Digital Flight Bag), which might be stored invisible for those who so want.

The EFB could have just a few nifty options together with full Navigraph charts integration, Simbrief, takeoff, and touchdown efficiency calculators. ATSU integration can also be within the works.

You will discover extra particulars on the developer’s weblog put up and benefit from the screenshots under.

Subsequent, we get an replace from DC Designs, on Concorde and a bonus have a look at the freeware P-61B Black Widow.

Concorde is for each PC and Xbox console ( for many who preserve asking! )

“This week, work has principally been centered on Concorde’s exterior mannequin. To convey the airplane as much as MSFS requirements, a lot of the authentic texture work has been stripped away and changed with all-new 4K texture maps, with a lot of the plane being UV-mapped anew to reap the benefits of the upper resolutions out there. As well as, a lot use has been made from the decal system to provide high-res options corresponding to entry panels, panel traces and ( billions and billions ) of rivets.

A mix of decals and regular maps make up nearly all of the rivet options throughout Concorde’s surfaces, which cowl huge areas on the wings and stay a WIP right now as I study to raised combine decals with mannequin surfaces. Increased element maps have been created for the wheels and the undercarriage, and I’m experimenting with the metallic end ( PBR ) there to recreate the flat aluminium floor, which continues to be a bit too shiny in comparison with the true airplane. The massive Olympus engines have been additionally fully re-mapped and textured at 4K, and work is on-going there to complete the maps earlier than including in some extra mannequin element.

Customized code is being transferred step by step throughout, controlling newer features such because the spill doorways and engine bleed doorways, gas panels and so forth. The plan right here is to have a fairly full exterior mannequin prepared in about two weeks’ time, earlier than work shifts to the inside. As soon as once more, a whole re-map and PBR utility will likely be required, in addition to the animation of all gauges, dials, switches, buttons and many others.

Whereas the exact CIVA INS won’t be included, we’ve determined to create a form of hybrid INS / FCS system that may enable twin enter of both Lat-Lon coordinates in addition to intersections and customary GPS / MSFS flight plan knowledge. It will give all customers the choices that they are going to want, whereas conserving the visible look of the cockpit as shut as potential to the unique Concorde. Work underway right here and far experimentation with code on-going, however hopefully it is going to produce one thing that works for just about all people.

Lastly, work on the freeware/donation ware P-61B Black Widow continues with the airplane now absolutely re-mapped to 4K prepared for her new textures. A screenshot has been included displaying the brand new maps in play on the exterior mannequin.”

SC Designs additionally showcased new screenshots and updates us on the progress of its F-16 Preventing Falcon.

“A shorter replace this week because the workload has been a lot the identical as final week, creating new modeling for the cockpit, new code for shows, and enhancing the feel artwork and element.

A brand new flight mannequin is in play and actually reveals the F-16’s superior maneuvering capabilities in shut fight, to not point out the excessive thrust-to-weight ratio that permits the Falcon to remain within the battle with even fifth-generation fighter plane.

Refinements to the HUD and shows embrace the creation of the DED show by CodeNameJack447, which is a multi-function glass display that may show nav and different element to enhance the pilot’s situational consciousness.

There have been many feedback just lately in regards to the incapability of Market airplanes to bear weapons. It’s undecided but as as to if this rendition of the F-16s will make it to third-party shops however given the truth that so many customers need to have the ability to dangle weapons off their F-16 and the truth that I too assume the F-16 appears to be like by some means “flawed” with out them, we may go along with a large launch through Simply Flight in any case for weaponized airplanes. Whichever route is taken, this plane goes to be as formidable in a dogfight as the true F-16, for those who’re courageous sufficient to take one on…”
