 I sincerely hope that the EFB makes it to the WTF version soon.

It could also be not so long soon. It's an add on that's basically "stand alone" in it's functionality. But maybe FSL fear it would potentially cannibalize the selling of the SL expansion if we could have an EFB update for free right now.

I'm curious how they will eventually implement it into the WTFs. Because if they make it an update you have to pay for, it's another set of products to manage, 'cause then you could have for example an A230-WTF and an A320-WTF-EFB. Could get quite complicated.

the efb is just a different way to interact with some of the atsu features.

It looks like more than that insofar as it supports access and display to other documents such as PDFs, web browser integration, mapping features for airports and AI/Vatsim traffic, among other things I think.

They did this for every major release. Nothing new there.

the 319 brought the icing simulation. the 321 brought the atsu (or was  it the dcdu and cpdlc? can't  remember). On each occasion the new product had the exclusivity of the new feature for several months before it was retrofitted to the older products.  From a commercial point of view it makes perfect sense.  The new features is anther incentive on top of the new plane variant. 

In the case of the efb its not just a mater of updating the cockpit.  They have to calculate all the performance tables etc.

And even  if these tables are already done, its the most logical  buisness decision to try  to maximize the sells for  the  past  year and change  of work.

i know but some of those things dont really change the interaction much. the performacne calulcation on the a319 for example is a big hurdle perhaps to do.

Given what we've seen so far, that seems to be just one of many functions of the EFB. Either way, we won't all abandon the WTF version with the release of the sharklets and it would be great to have the EFB throughout all A3XX versions.

you are missing the context. when it comes to porting over the efb into the other aircraft the majority of the interfaces dont need much work but performacne calculations could be changed.

Tom.

I would not get it, honestly.

Besides the scenery does not offer up-to-date PBR textures (not at all) it screwed my P3D.

My expectations where low, because FSDG does not offer the quality which we are used to from FlyTampa, MK-Studios or sim-wings. You can check several 4K-Videos or pictures on YouTube and Co. to elaborate several things like:

  • General Colour
    • Why is the city covered in green moss?
    • Why are there white patches everywhere?
    • Why does the airport area have a different texutre set than the surrounding area?
    • Why is the surrounding area yellow- and greenish?

VDGS is done accurately but does not match the GSX configuration, why Jetways are not working properly and ground vehicles are simply standing anywhere.

A replacement file can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7n8h2c7xhr2bqq9/AAB1ueGRXs07Z-TScxU5IgKXa?dl=0

Personally, I am highly dissapointed. And feedback from FSDG is, and this is an original quote:

"The lower picture seems to be unrealistic".

the landing calculation  is brand new though.

I can count  on one hand the number of times  I took the trouble  to actually calculate  the landing distance   with  the  fcom. The rest of the  time  I just guess,  when  in doubt go medium brake and full reverse and call it a day.

And that  it actually   accounts  for the failures too is quite  awesome.

i have used the LDC which is made by @Duncan MacKellar https://airbusftw.co.uk/downloads/. and to me it seems like the EFB takes some of the key insights from this. the LDC does failure stuff actually. it is new for fslabs to have it but given the dev who created the LDC is am not surprised it has made it in.

Seems a few are getting irate again. Perhaps go off and find something fun to do, perhaps some swimming.
