FSX/P3D. EGHP Popham already announced ! Iain Emms, from Orbx team has taken a first look at this new England airfield. Grass? Yes...  But a good stop to Shoreham, Stapleford, Old Warden...

Dom's rig : new graphic card

[Hardware]. Just a short post to inform you that i have just given up my ATI HD6570 for a Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GTX650 TI OC. New sceneries will be tested with this graphic card.

This 737 is an Enigma...

FSX/P3D. There are 2 737's coming this year that has me stumbling all over myself this year. One is currently in development by MilViz. The other, the one I am talking about right now, really has my panties in a bunch! She is beautiful, and I drool with every shot. So here is one more. Thanks to a reader and to Jon5700 for exposing this one!

AN-2 panel shot!

FSX/P3D. Now finally a first look from the inside and this is a shot you need to see to believe. Sure, many aircraft look great from the outside, but its the business end (panel) that really matters because it's the part of the aircraft your (at lease mine) eyes are looking at the most. So are we impressed so far with this first panel shot? YEP!

More LHSimulations Budapest (LHBP)!

FS9/FSX/XPL. LHSimulations has posted some new shots from Budapest (LHBP) and they look fantastic - the project is clearly progressing very well! The release will be fully AES compatible and include custom autogen surrounding the airport. Take a look inside for more shots.

One Shot - FSLabs Airbus!

FSX. There hasn't been much from Flight Sim Labs lately regarding their upcoming Airbus narrowbody project. Well, here's a quick one for you, a British Airways Airbus 320 to be exact. The external model looks very good indeed. Going to be lots of choice out there, which Airbus will you choose? See the latest shot and some older previews inside.

France VFR announcing... Montpellier !

FSX. The french designer is announcing Montpellier LFMT and Marseille airport. According to DB Alternative company, these developements are going to speed up thanks to a new partnership with a freelancer. Most probably with the very same one who already showed off here some Marseille Provence  previews. Well.. it's my guess.

Oh my god, Stanislaw (2) !

FS9 (and FSX later).Flightbeam exclusives are not enough ?? Here are some eye-catching previews of New York City work from  Drzewiecki Design. And Stanislaw is still offering interesting discount on his sceneries for its annual Easter Sale online (-30%).

AirDailyX Exclusive! FlightBeam Dulles!

FSX/P3D. Now here is a developer that arrived on the FS scene and delivered an amazing high quality product with amazing framerates with his first release: KSFO. His second release: KPHX, was second to none in terms of quality, visuals, and performance. This time though, Mir is taking things to a whole new level and based on what we have seen thus far, words simply can't describe our amazement, so we are sharing with you all our first set of exclusives of FB-KIAD! Check it out!

Orbx N.California, S.Rockies, & More Alaska...

FSX/P3D. Inside several recent Orbx forum threads there has been some new information regarding upcoming and possible FTX regions. Firstly, Orbx is aiming to release FTX Northern California late 2013 - specifically October/November. Next, another FTX Alaska region has been confirmed following completion of Northern California. Lastly, some information regarding the possibility of FTX Southern Rockies. Fantastic stuff ahead! Take a look inside for the specific quotes and more information...

Virtavia B-45! I'm getting one!

FSX/P3D. Virtavia has just released their B-45 Tornado! Although technically the B-45 was essentially a WW2 aircraft design with 4 jet engines fitted, it's arrival in 1948 made it the first purpose-built jet bomber in the world. It's ability to deliver nuclear weapons, admittedly over very limited range, made it nevertheless a very effective deterrent in the early part of the Cold War. For me though, I just want to fly it around the PNW!

France VFR Champagne-Ardennes Released

FSX. France VFR has released Champagne-Ardennes PHOTO HD. The package includes high resolution photorealistic textures and accompanying custom mesh. Further, lakes and rivers have been reworked for added accuracy. The package obviously covers the Champagne-Ardennes region. Take a look inside for some more release pics.

A hint of Budapest from LHSim!

FS9/FSX/XPL. Here is just a little hint of the custom autogen that will surround LHPB. More than ten thousand objects including buildings, trees, lights, vehicles etc. have already been placed. Want to see a bit of the bigger picture? The Aerosoft LHBP can't throw a stone to this! And I loved that scenery!

MetroVid!

FSX. Ah yet another prop driven aircraft I am hungering to get my hands on this year! It's quite a short video, but it highlights the Metroliner's VC needle animations and WIP of turning this mesh into a functioning cockpit for FSX. All I can say is WANT, WANT, WANT! Check out the video then our search bar on the left to find more news we have posted on this project.

The latest info from SibWings!

FSX/P3D. My 2013 list of prop driven aircraft is the longest ever in my personal history of flight simulation. I am really starting to enjoy the growing FTX regions in P3D and as such, it's more fun to fly a lot lower and slower and keep the high flying to FS9. Needless to say, the upcoming AN-2 Colt from SibWings is among my top 3 on my list! Here is the latest info on it.

Oh my gosh, Stanislaw !

FS9 (and FSX later). Stanislaw Drzewiecki is always waking up very early. And this time, OMG, that was to publish amazing shots of Warsaw Chopin EPWA !  [Warning, still work in progress]

How did we miss that?

FSX. A few days ago, while reopening its forum, McPhat Studios has posted a new preview of the Fokker 50 project... A new cooperation with Coolsky.

The folk Captain's diner aside,

Aerosoft Copyright - We will try to post this shot and avoid a trial.. Well who knows....
[FS Market]. New tracks are leading us to the futur. New horizon. Some people have decided to split the profits between several FS platforms (FSX/ X-Plane/ Aerofly...). But  we will never blame Aerosoft for their efforts to draw this futur. The FS conference is now planned. The folk Captain's diner aside, conferences choices matter. Much more.
Good luck and good night.
