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 t

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

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 be

I know its the wrong chatroom for that, but i have seen so many really nice screenshots from all busses. On your portal you still present those very very old fslabs liveries. If it would be my portal, i d replace them with actual PBR pics. Specially for the 320 and 319. 

Who else thinks this is a good idea?

Do you know what i am talking about? 

 

There is a screenshot from a 319 from Lufthansa standing in the fog and has the landing lights turned on. This is a real stunner. A jawdropping shot.

What a beautiful sky! What sky textures they might have used? :o

I’m actually wondering what Sky textures they used in the first picture.

I wonder if the EFB needs to be charged by a cable. I am a professional at forgetting it at home :mellow:

I very much doubt it. It would be kind of a pointless feature ;)

I can already see the support team be overwhelmed with tickets because the EFB is not working anymore and the automated answer/solution is: "Recharge it!" :D 

I like useless features! :)

Not working!!!!!!

FSL could sell cables in a shop. Ingame-market? :D:D:D 
I don´t know how much charge cables I ordered on my companies internal market already :D 

PS: No one is asking anymore but could you show us the EFB a fit more? :D

Yes I could.  But then I would face the wrath of Andy and Lefteris.  I would rather not right now thanks :)

Hm.... would be nice but I‘m sceptic. 
We didn‘t get a default one neither for the 320 nor for the 319...

Although one of the larger Airbus carrier in Europe, it’s aparently one of the hardest repaints to do from what I‘ve heard from several good repainters...

Once we get them basically into the FSL cockpit, next would be getting Lido charts with Navigraph pls! :wub:
Why? Because they're just better than Jeppesen :D 

PS: CandyCrush is still Prio1 for the EFB imo ;D

Will be the EFB only available with the sharklet extension (even for the A319)? Looking forward to have that in the cockpit:rolleyes:

Maybe its easier, to ask EW to change their livery in order to get it as day one livery. And yes i asked the same, some days ago. I don't know what, but anything from these planes is difficult to paint.

I am excited to see what the Ocean livery will look like.
Probably the yellow "sun" logo like the older Lufthansa livery but more white and a huge OCEAN at the front.

Eurowings is a pain but our master-painters will get it done sooner or later! Maybe @Vasilis get it done once SL are finished :D

So, other than the obvious changes in the external model and a couple of percent off in fuel consumption....

What does the sharklet version bring on top of what's already available now. That is, what do we know that FSlabs is going to add - systemwise?

Newer flight computers, new flight model (which isn't just "a few percent off fuel consumption" - it includes new aerodynamics and flight characteristics unique to the sharklet), updated fuel systems, satdom integration (with relevant aerodynamic and CG shift), EFB, full LED lighting system...

Man I’m hoping it comes either next month or Xmas.

we need the extra winter performance

Christmas sounds more achievable to me.

I would rather wait and have the plane released without bugs from BETA.

Why is no one discussing the price tag or give prepositions...

:P

My guess is around 70€

Since it‘s not a standalone product, I think it is lower. I‘m wild guessing something around 39,99 Euros. :)

When we compare it to the A319 & A321 prices, in my opinion probably the extension will be based on a lower price. But of course we all know how much work and effort the team is showing into the extension. (Performance, LED Lights, EFB), I guess it could be between 25-35 Euros:ph34r: Looking forward to see more previews:rolleyes:
