Third-party developers have provided development updates and assets about upcoming aircraft and a relevant airport coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator.
First of all, we hear from FlightFX, which provided an update on the Cirrus Vision Jet SF50 on its Discord Server on top of a very fancy 3D view of the model of the aircraft and its interior.
Wanted to drop a little Holiday surprise for you while many of you are off from work or out of school. The attached link is a one of a kind, interactive work in progress look. Going forward we will continue to provide these types of interactive WIP shots. We feel it allows you as a user to get a better understanding of what you are going to be purchasing.
A couple of things to keep in mind. We are starting to get things back from our Vision Jet owner/beta testers. No they arent flying anything at the moment. This is feedback from people who are intimately familiar with the aircraft and all of its quirks. We know that many of you will start to compare things to photos. Rest assured we see all of that and things you wont. For example there is no image smoothing on for any of the geometry. Things will look blocky. Also, the wings are a bit chubby at the moment. Etc.
Anyways, all of that is on the list to be addressed. This link is more for your enjoyment to see overall progress. https://seekbeak.com/v/v8jkbvPrz49
Additionally, if you are a Vision Jet owner we would love to hear from you. Nothing beats feedback from actual owners. If you are one please speak up and we can move you into a private channel to communicate with out team.
For those of you who are interested in beta testing we know you are excited. As stated earlier. Once we get a bit further along here we will be posting here looking to add a few people to the team. We will discuss the criteria internally however, I can say that we will be looking to people with all sorts of levels of equipment. The most important thing though will be for your ability to take the time and provide constructive feedback as well as being able to dedicate the time to breaking it.
Next comes Dev Digital, showing off new work-in-progress renders and videos of its Boeing 757-300, which is also going to be freeware.
Here’s a summary of the developer’s progress, which you can also follow at its Discord server.
