  1. Hello everyone, I wanted to take the opportunity to first of all extend our hopes and wishes that everyone is feeling well and safe from the COVID-19 pandemic that has befallen the world. Please be careful to follow your government's instructions and advice so that this can become part of stories and folklore we all one day tell our grandchildren. Lockheed Martin's release of Prepar3D v5 is now behind us and I would also want to take a moment to discuss our roadmap regarding updates for the already released product line and a bit of detail on what the future holds regarding our upcom

  2. Hello everyone, I am happy to announce that our latest update (v5.0.1.126) for the A320-X, A319-X and A321-X for P3D v4 and v5 (64-bit) is now live and available through our download page. This is a maintenance update which fixes several issues identified since our last public release, mostly related with connectivity with GSX and some tweaks to the external lights (positions and light intensities). We also fixed the rain / snow effects showing through the Logo lights. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone happy holidays from all of us at Flight Sim Labs -

  3. Hello everyone, I am happy to announce that our latest updates (v5.0.1.114) for the A320-X, the A321-X as well as the A319-X now, are live and available through our download page. This is the first update that makes the A319-X compatible with P3D v5, which brings improvements in performance, as well as several updates and fixes to the base code. In this update, we spent significant time to update the external model with PBR texturing for the A319-X, to bring it up to v5 standards, adding several improvements which follow the A320-X and A321-X updates, such as dynamic cabin windo

This update should also fix a couple of small issues (namely, the NEW CRZ ALT rounding issue and a few other niggles). EDIT: There are some GSX related updates as well that I forgot to mention: Once loaded in on stand, click MECH HORN to setup the aircraft. This will: - Call Stairs followed by GPU on remote stands - Or Call Jetway into position - This process can take up

  5. Hello guys, I appreciate all of the hype going on already and I am super excited to see all the anticipation reaching amazing levels! In fact, I wanted to share that, while we don't expect the release to go out tonight as our beta team is still going through the usual uninstall / reinstall of the new HF2 client and testing the latest version, we are actually quite confident that what is coming is going to make everyone very happy! We also expect to lift the NDA within this weekend to allow our testers to showcase some of the beautiful new features we've put in place - I am sure

  7. Hi all – As Lefteris commented on, one of my favourite areas of the updated models, besides the PBR, is the cabin windows. Each window has now been remodelled in detail - and we've also modelled the cabin window blinds, individually. You'll notice the blinds moving as you fly - depending on where the sun is relative to the aircraft and flight phase. For example, should the sun be shining on the left side of the fuselage, then you'll see more cabin blinds close on that side. As the sunlight becomes more intense before dusk or after dawn - more blinds will close. During dusk/dawn, we figure

  8. I've elected to stay away from this until now as it gives people an opportunity to joke around, vent their frustrations on a "perceived delay" of our release (even though I've explained the reasons behind the delay) and has so far been kept casual and light-hearted. It seems things are starting to derail now, however. When our beta testers are starting to be called "fanboys" and the requirement that "claims need to be backed up" arises, people's feelings are starting to be hurt and I am not liking the direction the thread is taking. So - without further ado - if you do not wish me to

  9. Hi guys- just a small note to say that we're fixing some issues we found while testing the release - nothing too major but it might take a little bit more time to do. That, in combination with the upcoming P3Dv5 HF2 which we feel will fix a couple other very important shortcomings, is delaying our release. Just wanted you guys to know, so you don't expect the release to drop within the next couple of days at least.

  13. It’s not platform locked for the sake of it. A lot of our simulation runs independently of the P3D SDK in order to deliver a number of unique features exclusive to our titles (dynamic lighting/effects/sounds/flight model). These all need configuring and testing with each iteration of the P3D platform. And due to the complexity of the simulation - it takes a few days for our teams to ensure no issues are introduced. In addition to this, our development streams are constantly evolving - and the release of a new P3D build means we need to test any updates to our code base on the new platform wi

    Hi all, With the NDA lifted I can showcase what I've been up to the last few weeks. I consider this my COVID-19 furlough project as I was off work for almost a month and a half but I'm back into the fold now thankfully! I spent my time off working on an all-new 4K PBR-enhanced fuselage kit and am combining it into a full-featured kit in collarboration with @Hugo Bicho and @John Tavendale. This is leveraging Hugo's wings, engines, pylons, stabs and other bits. I've completely reworked the entire fuselage, including panelling, rivets, wing box, doors, landing gear struts, tires, cockpi

  15. I did that on purpose, you know - just to see how fast it would be picked up! On that topic: We were planning on posting a news update today, but it's already 10pm here and family obligations are already calling. As such, I would like to apologize but this will take place tomorrow instead, rather than put something out that misses fun and exciting things! Talk soon guys!

  26. While I understand there might be some strong feelings towards other simulations of A320 aircraft, I would kindly ask everyone to watch their tone and refrain from derogatory or insulting remarks. There are people working very hard to develop these products so if by any chance they frequent this forum, they will feel terribly if they read your comments regardless of your intentions. Please think about such things before posting.

  28. Just to answer some quick questions: Everything will be compatible with both v4.5/v5. We'll update the existing titles to v4.5 HF3 in the coming days. The updates for the A320/A321/A319 will follow for v5 - there is some significant work to be done here. The new Sharklet expansion product will then follow.

  31. Felipe, you called people "fanboys". That's a derogatory, inflammatory, demeaning, insulting (shall I continue with the adjectives?) remark. The point isn't to shut up, it's to be courteous, respectful, kind, polite and nice. If you can't be those, best course of action is to keep quiet. I'd prefer if you could be those things instead, however.

I was always unhappy with the Excel version of my little tool, so I used the current lockdown to actually learn some HTML, CSS and JavaScript, which I didn't have any experience in before. But it's aparently working and I am constantly learning, so lend me some rope if you see something stupid I did...

Personally I know the poster was just having a giggle. However, we stand by our team and the decisions they make, even if not to the liking of some. Just remember, we are working our butts off to get things to you as quickly as possible. Part of this is the fact we may encounter a late issue.
