  1. Hello all, It's been a couple months since our last news, so I wanted to take this opportunity and give you an update of our current project development status. We've so far been very quiet as regards our MSFS development plans - we've taken some time to investigate the best possible way to bring our product family into the new platform while maintaining a common code base that still keeps a high level of realism and fidelity as regards the flight model characteristics our customer base has been used to up to now. Given the well documented state of the Microsoft Flight Simulator SDK we are continuing our efforts to innovate beyond the platforms' current limitations. Over the last eighteen months, FSLabs has undergone a period of growth where we've brought a number of new developers on board as well as a new support team member and this allows us to utilize functional teams to develop our products in parallel. A few words regarding our current product road map: We're very excited to be working on the A320 NEO which we expect to make available on the Prepar3D platform initially. The A320 NEO will join the A320-X Master Series line of products that we are working to bring onto the MSFS platform. We also expect to release the Concorde on Prepar3D first and again, we're working to release it to the MSFS platform. We will be excited to share more previews of this title as it enters beta testing in the next six to eight weeks! We're also happy to announce that the A3XX product that we've been teasing for a while now is in fact the Airbus A330. We've been working on this product along side our other development and we expect to give you more news on that later on. Last but not least, as promised in my last news announcement, we're excited to bring a functional update to the A319/A320/A321 WTF series that brings the EFB, and Jump Ahead feature to these aircraft (for owners of the Sharklets series) as part of today's update that will become available in the next few hours as part of our experimental channel. This update will also include more fixes and improvements to the FMGC logic as part of our continued commitment to supporting our existing product family. As always, thank you for your continued support!

  2. Hello all, As with most everyone else globally, we've felt the effects of the pandemic and we wish that you and your families are all safe now that things are starting to clear up again. A quick update on some developments and where we’re at with certain projects: The A320-X Series: We’ve been making progress on implementing new features within the FMGS. Last month we pushed out some new infrastructure that included lateral offsets – and our team are currently reworking some of the logic around holds. Expect to see more features trickle out as this line of work continues. We have received a lot of feedback from our A320-SL customers that they would love the ability to use our EFB within their Wing Tip Fence aircraft. So - in our next update (I will advise when it's available through the experimental channel), any customer who owns one of our SL titles will also be able to use the EFB in any of our A320-X series aircraft. The A3XX Series: Work has been steadily picking up pace on this project and as resources become available, they are now being allocated onto this variant. Expect an announcement later this year. Concorde: We’ve been full steam on this title for some time now – and excellent progress is being made by our teams on the all new modeling (external as well as virtual cockpit). We’re excited to begin showing some previews soon. This new title is now packed full of all the features, detail and immersion that our customers have come to expect from Flight Sim Labs. Oh - and if you wish to see something else we've been working on... check out our Facebook cover Thank you once again for your continued support as always!

  4. Hi everyone, After our pre-release note on September 6th, I am very happy to now announce that our FSLabs Control Center, our new utility which allows easier management of our product family and simplifies tasks such as installation and uninstallation of FSL aircraft, liveries, airline packs and utilities (e.g. FSL Spotlights), is now available for download to all our customers! Its primary aim is to allow for a one-stop update facility for our product line and improve the customer experience by providing micro-updates and rollbacks without the need for individual installers or long downloads, allowing our customers to update their entire product line with a few simple clicks. Multiple simulation platforms are supported and a search facility for official liveries is provided to allow for a quick selection and installation of your favorite airline colors. It features an 'Update All' simple, one-click update function which allows streamlined downloading of any new available updates for all the customer-installed products, rather than having to download individual installers each time we update our product line. There is also a bulk uninstall feature which allows the customer to uninstall all products at once, so that license keys are once again deactivated and ready for future use in preparation of hardware changes or replacements with no need to contact support to request license reactivation. Apart from the stable public release channel, a provision is made for an "experimental" channel as well, whereby the customer can, at their option, choose to be part of our upcoming open testing channel, whenever available. Last, but not least, the opportunity to enter optional items such as your Hoppie ACARS logon and Simbrief username is available through FSL Control Center, as well. As you make your way through FSLabs Control Center, we would love to have your feedback in the newly added FSL Control Center forum - go through the FAQs and User Guide you will find there and feel free to let us know your first impressions as well as any issues you might find. As always, we thank you for your continued support!

  7. Gents- we have always encouraged healthy discussion about our products and anything that concerns them, even bringing up points from other products in comparison. We will always maintain that openness. We have, however, always asked that if people want to find more direct information about other products, they visit their web sites instead - posting entire pages here is not really recommended or necessary, if you need that, then Google's your friend! Thanks for respecting this and allowing us to maintain this openness!

  8. Personally, with this news today, I feel like FSL will miss out on bringing their bread/butter product line in MSFS (A320). Before, there was some ambiguity about MSFS being a viable platform. Now, however, it is clear as day - MSFS is THE future of flight simulation, and it is ready for prime time. I feel like FSL should do with their Concorde what JustFlight chose to do with their F28 and immediately halt development for P3D, and focus on bringing the Concorde to MSFS, and/or considering an A330/A340 for the new platform. The P3D ship was already sinking, but now it has split in half. It’s going down fast. Hopefully, it’s not too late. As much as I love the Concorde, I am not willing to keep P3D installed for it. Bring it to MSFS and I will purchase. I think it is time for FSLabs to put out a statement, making their intentions of MSFS clear.

  9. Glad to see your team is growing. Couldn't care less about MSFS ... after taking off in the handicapped PMDG 737 out of PDX and flying over Portland in MSFS these SU updates just seem to keep making MSFS worse and worse ... it's frankly just garbage graphics in MSFS (even more so when Photogrammetry is enabled, OMG what a mess). I just don't get how MSFS fans can turn a blind eye to these obvious issues in MSFS: Wall of bridges in Portland? Water looks horrible with obvious gaps in tiling. Buildings with water roof tops? Shoreline shadows that chase over the water? Grainy clouds that are over done with shadows and strange puffy formations and clouds that are just white blob reflections on water? And the list of visual problems with MSFS goes on and on ... I just don't get the attraction let alone understand how MSFS users just ignore these problems? When P3D has visual problems (and it does) the world is coming to an end, but when MSFS has even worse visual problems all is good?? MSFS is "next generation" ... 2 years of updates and still has significant problems. Maybe in 10 years by the time I retire it will be fixed? Thank you for taking care of your P3D customer base first, appreciated. Rob.

  15. I don't really see MSFS users ignoring the issues you've pointed out. They've been talked about to death. On the whole, MSFS has advanced graphical fidelity in flight sims, warts and all. Let me repeat a key phrase: on the whole. Yes, it has it's flaws, but that out-of-the-box experience matters to consumers, and you'd be hard pressed to convince them with two side-by-side images of default installs of MSFS and P3D that the latter is superior. That's not me talking, that's the market. Some things, sure. But what about TrueSky? Even with MSFS' volcanic-ash clouds (which are getting better, thankfully), it's a generational leap ahead of every other sim. Same thing with lighting. MSFS is way ahead of P3D. I don't see anyone fixing that. Oh and btw it took me 5 seconds to search for a freeware fix for bridges it Portland: https://flightsim.to/file/2374/portland-or-bridges Again, on the whole it's a step forward and it'll only get better assuming Asobo follows through on things like the WXR API, fixing limitations of C++/WASM add-ons, etc. The VC is a massive improvement over the P3D version, and it'd be impossible to get something that high fidelity in P3D without tanking frames, massive stutters, or running out of VRAM and getting that lovely DXGI error. Because they see MSFS getting world and sim updates 4 or 5 times a year. There's a roadmap. There are Twitch streams with the devs. With LM, you get silence and weak-tea updates every 5 or 6 months. I say all of this knowing I'll continue to use both MSFS and P3D for the foreseeable future. They both have their pros and cons, with P3D's biggest strength is being way more open and less sandboxed than MSFS at the moment.

  16. I'm being realistic ... are you suggesting those screenshots look good to you? The only way they look good to me is if I do indeed rub some "salt" in my eyes. I guess I'm surprise people are so positive when MSFS has some really obvious flaws. I'll take P3D visual glitches any day vs. MSFS walled bridges and water roof tops ... it's not like I was "searching" for MSFS issues, enable Photogrammetry (a major selling point for MSFS), takeoff from PDX (my home airport) and fly over Portland (and that is with all my settings at Ultra or max in MSFS). How do people NOT ignore P3D visual issues but DO ignore the MSFS ones? I can turn Photogrammetry off, but then I get skyscraper buildings in place of radio towers ... fly around San Francisco, Sutro tower is a giant skyscraper, I pointed out to MSFS over 2 years ago and still the issue is present today. I'm guessing the answer to MSFS popularity is that it provides more for free out of the box, and "free" is the key. It takes some investment to make P3D look better than MSFS. I can't fix the Photogrammetry issues with MSFS, I can fix graphical issues in P3D. I installed the PMDG 737 in MSFS and was VERY disappointed, it was NOT progress, not even "on par" with the P3D version. I see a ton of user optimism for MSFS, but none for P3D ... yet MSFS is over 2 years in for us early BETA users and I'm just NOT seeing the progress, DX12 implementation is a performance joke, a long list of graphics problems. So you tell me Richard, why? Cheers, Rob.

  19. Hi dear FSL team and especially @Lefteris Kalamaras Just a big thank you for the update you posted today! Only this week I had searched the forum again to see if anyone had written anything. Since it has become so quiet around you, I was almost afraid that maybe there would be no further development or even new aircraft, except the Concorde... So a huge thank you from me this time for this really great news! That's why I took the liberty of opening this thread directly, because the thank you symbol under your post today wasn't enough for me! Keep up the good work, and feel free to send us some news every now and then - even if it's absolutely small things!

  24. There is a lot of fanboyism towards MSFS. I don't know if it has to do with the age or the characteristics of the target audience but just yesterday I saw someone in another forum being completely mocked by several idiots just for wishing to have a quality addon (study level). "why? we don't need that!" In the end I remembered my FS9 and FSX days when I used to fly using NAV/GPS... bingo! I think many, many people are still in that phase. PS: being completely honest I know that if it wasn't for the amount of money invested in the P3D platform and the quality of the addons I have I would have migrated like many did... but damn, I'm glad I don't need to migrate because I have everything I need! I don't know how it is with the fanboys but I speak for myself... PPS: sorry for the grammar.
