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 extremely busy behind the scenes. I've just f

I heard they broke everything.....and making it again....so few more years....:lol:!

I heard at the water cooler, they are waiting on a server part that went bad that is causing the final RTM version to be delayed. It is on a ship in the Red Sea stuck in a long line of ships waiting to transit the Suez Canal. ;)

That’s true but they actually never said they would release it during that time period did they ? They just said early 2021 so in others word soon :D

It seems like there are several types of flight sim (aircraft, scenery or airport) developers:

Those who say: we will release this package on xxxx - and they do

Those who say: we will release this package on xxxx - and they don't

And there are some who don't say anything before release.  But 'hype' suggests that these are few?

 

Each of them have to manage some sort of expectation, but the second would be the worst - hence it's the worst option in forums like these.  However, the second could be much more dependant on unexpected events - and it sounds like this could have happened here?

I would say the whole year 2020 was unexpected. Sometimes I have the feeling that people think this whole pandemic doesn't affect FSLabs devs...

Opening up this thread every morning in the office is now quite a routine for me:D

I suggest they don’t release them. Wouldn’t want to disturb your routine!

I will admit that it would be nice to get the WTF update out so we know we are that much closer to the SL update.

is today "Tuesday Madness"? too quiet around here.

I had the same thougt, really too quiet here for any release around a corner.

So it seems that there won't be SL in early 2021 :P

I don't see it happening today or tomorrow. We're still awaiting the WTF update along with the Promo Video release and a streaming flight by Blackbox711. There is no way this will happen in 2 days. If I were to guess I would say sometime around mid-April if all things are going well.

Well...

They finished the promo video about to week ago so for me this implies they're basically finished so release should be imminent. (in a month or two:lol:

They said they were finalising the installers for the wtf update two weeks ago. Obviously they found something that needs to be fixed after that otherwise it probably wouldn’t take so long.

 

In the meantime to pass the time  i did some cleaning at home  and found my old tin foil hat.

 

I think  I remember them talking about expanding the inputs systems, like the side stick priority etc.

With the skalarki drivers being released, we can now have a nice home cockpit, and knowing that fslabs also want to aim their products at the professional market down the line, what if, what is actually coming is shared cockpit capability for their products.

I can’t imagine a professional product where you can’t simulate crew interaction.

So we probably won’t have  this  with the wtf update, or the when the sharklet releases, but surely  it something that will come down the line.

My thoughts (or should I say hopes?) exactly!I didn't want to speak it out though, in fear of being burnt at the stake... :lol:

on a home cockpit you do not really need shared cockpit infrastructure but the ability to have both sticks function. or how would you see the throttle move if the FO moves it to toga but yours does not respond in the home cockpit

however people flying just with the VC can benefit from it.

Yes you're  right. I'm was just thinking about the global direction they are taking.

Is there no WTF for V151 update? I thought this update will include WTF. Does that mean that there will be another WTF update than the sharklet that we have been waiting for will be released?

It’s for the wing tip fences. Sharklets will come later and you have to pay for them.

hi basic question...the sharklet is mainly 3D model and performance differences right?  It is otherwise the same airplane?

The expansion will feature more than just the added structure and flight dynamics. The wing root design, efb, software updates, and maybe even more goodies not yet known.

It must be the same airplane, otherwise it would require a new typerating.

They are but at the sametime they're not. Most of the differences are under the hood.
