X-Pilot has a new design! We've implemented a huge upgrade to our forum and news system, and there are many new features as a part of that.
Enjoy the new layout and more intuitive user interface!
Sundog Software and X-Aviation have announced work on 'Real Weather Connector', a product to work with SkyMaxx Pro v3.
Real Weather Connector will enhance and alter the way weather is generated for X-Plane.
Real Weather Connector will be released as its own product, but it will require SkyMaxx Pro v3 to work, utilizing downloaded weather data and generate clouds in their actual locations.
To read more about the product, and follow Sundog's development, visit X-Pilot's forum thread.
JarDesigns has provided Aerosoft Sim News with new previews of their upcoming A330 with Rolls Royce engines.
You can see the exclusive preview shots at ASN XP.
We also have an active discussion on this project here at X-Pilot.
This product continues on JarDesign's successful Airbus series of products.
PMDG has officially announced the Douglas DC-6 as their entry product into the X-Plane simulation world.
Robert Randazzo of PMDG states:
"The PMDG Classics DC-6B is the lead off product in a new breed of products for PMDG that will bring some "old school" aviation to our product lines for Xplane, FSX and Prepar3D. This product will drop for XPlane first- but shortly after will release for FSX and Prepar3D as well- making it the first PMDG product to appear on three different simulation platforms."
A topic of discussion can be found here at X-Pilot.
The original posting from PMDG may be found on their Facebook page.
X-Aviation and Maxx-XP have released an update for SkyMaxx Pro, bringing the version number to 1.3!
This update includes further enhancements and optimizations in performance, including features like forced cirrus layers for a more realistic environment and higher resolution textures than in previous versions.
You can read more about this update here.
A list of what has been updated includes:
Clouds faded out due to visibility are culled, to further improve performance
New cumulus cloud puff textures
Clouds should be consistent across multiple displays
New config option to always force at least one cirrus layer (on by default). If no cirrus layer comes in from X-Plane's datarefs, we create one at 9000 meters
Improved error handling in the event initialization fails
Cloud visibility is generally increased
Random variation added to cumulonimbus cloud sizes
Prevents a source of a potential crash reported by one user
Memory leak fixed with latest Gizmo build
