Sharklet Hype

But is v5.2 confirmed to come out in the near future? Anything announced? Its rumours - nothing else. Of course 5.2 will come but nobody knows when. Look at that buggy thing...maybe it takes a bit longer than any other updates before!? 

IF Fslabs is holding the release, they will have a good reason for that like for example what Stu said. But they know their business very well - we are not in the position to give good advices or guessing maybe why or mayby why not because of anything....

All this guessing has gotten us come to a point where people are frustrated. But I also think, people are frustrated because they take guesses for granted...

SL = soon language

Well. I guess we will probably see a BIG release with SL and a A330 + NEO series at the same time. Thats why it takes long :D 
No. I just want the Sharklets to come out! :D

I think I just find the lack of communication annoying. But that’s in typical FSLabs fashion, really. 
 

Last we heard was in mid-December. 3 months. 
 

Sometimes you just wish you’d at least get some vague development update PMDG-style. 
 

Ah well, par for the course at FSLabs. Love the product... but the company... ;)

tbh we are still in Q1 so i would wait a few weeks. ande see then. i personally prefer posts with a lot of contents over little content but a lot of fillers.

Thats not completely true. Andrew just said, we should expect a shorter promotion time as they don't want to show off the nice details way ahead. Plus they told us, they are working hard. 

I mean, they told us why there are no screens. They told us they are working hard. They told us "expect a release early 2021..." -> this is a bit a personal feeling but as usual, no release date given. Normally, its all said. 

I don't want to offend anyone and I want the SL as much as we all want them.

Hi guys,

I did say we are planning a shorter promotional period with these titles. So please don't be disheartened by the lack of any updates. We are extreamly busy behind the scenes. I've just finished working on our Promo film that we will premiere before release. We can't wait to show you more of what we've been working on. 

Thanks again for your continued support and your patience - the wait is almost over. We are still planning to update our wing-tip fence fleet in the interim. Testing is now complete and we're finalising the installers.

Just beautiful :) 

OK, I'm sure someone asked this before, but visually, will sharklets have a reflection on the wing surface? Or that is not possible in p3d?

Actually, many of us have a question for the additional features of the sharklet model, comparing to the existing one.

Is there a list somewhere? That is, what should we expect from this new model, except sharklets?

    • New fuel system supporting center tank jet pumps
    • Updated FQIC and FLSCU logic
  • Updated FWC to latest software standards

Hi Markos - not yet, we want to show these off in our promo video first. A list of features will then be made available - and we will also then be able to answer any questions on specific features in more detail.
