Today, third-party developers shared new screenshots of upcoming additions for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including planes and scenery.
We start with Aerosoft, who showed off some new images the future Airbus A330 from the project manager Matiis Kok and beta tester BaxterChico. While the plane doesn’t have a release date yet, we can see the Turkish Airlines livery and the view of the wing with the flaps extended in one screenshot of the SAS livery.
By the way, we hear from Kok about post-release support plans, including that the next project will be announced next week. We already know that it will be another Airbus, although the specific model has not yet been revealed.
“This A330ceo is our base model. All generated code is intended for use in all subsequent Airbus projects. So after the release of the A330ceo, the same team will continue to work on the project. Not only to make changes to the next aircraft, but also to add features to the base code that can be used on all models. By spreading the investment over a larger number of products, the cost is reduced.
Exactly what we do depends on many things. Of course, we will need to extend and maintain the code base. There are things that just won’t make it into the initial release. But we plan to expand EFB, and something like RAAS is certainly possible. However, we need to see how many of the aircraft we model actually have RAAS. I don’t do polls or anything like that, but we’re definitely open to suggestions! That’s what this forum section is for!”
The following screenshot is taken from Blackbird simulators and developer features the future SR-71 Blackbird. Unfortunately, this comes on a sad occasion as it was published in honor of the recent death of the famous pilot, Major Brian Shul. So let me take the plunge hook you up with something really coolas a little extra respect.
Blackbird mentions that Shul spent some time with one of the Blackbird developers when they were working on the plane.
Pacific Islands Simulation is finally released new screenshots showing the interior of the terminal Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) in the USA. The developer plans to release it by the end of June.
