  4. A close collaboration between ORBX and IPACS, both teams have been quietly working away at this over the past months, bringing together the ground-breaking visual engine of Aerofly FS2 with the high detail and immersion you have come to expect from an ORBX HD Airport. For those who haven't had a chance to try AF FS2 yet, I strongly urge you to check it out. As a VFR experience, this is the best sim currently on the market, hands down. As you can see from the screenshots below, there is a clear mark-up in terrain quality - mountains look crisp, photoreal roads and railways are discernible all the way to the horizon, and both the shadow and atmospheric engines are stunning. Best of all, performance is through the roof - having spent a great deal of time learning from the IPACS team, I have discovered that they are passionate about tweaking the very best performance out of their engine as possible. In terms of the scenery itself, I've brought across the best elements of the FSX/P3D version that you've all been enjoying over the past month. Features expected from any next-gen ORBX airport are there - animated PeopleFlow, cars and trains, highly-detailed autogen vegetation and buildings, enormous coverage area, high-detail 2048 textures and dozens of landmarks. In addition, expect to see a couple of very exciting new features exclusive to AF FS2; naturally sloped runways, highly accurate crash detection (no more close-calls when flying under those bridges!), better-implemented spec/bump maps for the ground poly, and some very nifty shadow/night textures. Lastly, the optimisation of this engine really makes a difference - performance, microstutters and VAS usage are genuinely nothing to worry about around Innsbruck. I've been easily getting upwards of 130-140fps with maxed settings. Lastly, for those that own or are looking forward to a VR headset, AeroFly FS2 provides native compatibility for both Occulus Rift and HTC Vive. The smoothness and performance of the sim with, coupled with the native compatibility, make this the superior platform for VFR flying - I'm sure JV will chime in with his own experiences with the OR and AeroFly. CURRENT PRICING and RELEASE DETAILS - Owners of the FSX/P3D version of LOWI will receive a 40% discount for the AeroFly FS2 version. - Full price will be AUD$39.95 (€27, US$30, £23 approx.) or AUD$24 (€17, US$18, £14 approx.) at the discounted price - Release is scheduled for June 15th 2017 (a special request from John - it's his birthday after all!) - FTX Innsbruck for AeroFly FS2 will be previewed live at FlightSimCon on June 10th 2017; this will be streamed via our good friends at AirDailyX - This is just the first of many ORBX airports for AeroFly FS2!

  5. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 28TH 2017 - Toowong Australia and Tubigen Germany ORBX AND IPACS FORM PARTNERSHIP TO CO-PUBLISH HD CONTENT FOR AEROFLY FS 2 Following many months of planning and collaborative development, Orbxs and IPACS are pleased to announce that both companies will be publishing HD Orbx airports and other content for the Aerofly FS 2 simulator. Aerofly FS 2 (AFS2) is a state-of-the-art 64-bit flight simulator which is recognised as having the most efficient and highest performing 3D engine on the market today, with superb lighting and animation support and the smoothest VR experience available for any simulator anywhere. The first two titles to be published are LOWI Innsbruck Airport in Austria, and KCGX Merill C. Meigs Field in Chicago USA, both which have been faithfully ported and enhanced for the AFS2 platform and even add features like a sloping runway at LOWI. "I am extremely excited about this new emerging sim platform", says John Venema, Orbx CEO. "We have found a development partner in IPACS with the same ideals, passion and professionalism as the Orbx team and these past months have been a pleasure in terms of cooperation and joint creativity". Dr. Torsten Hans, CEO of IPACS adds; "We're absolutely thrilled to be co-publishing new HD content from Orbx, a company who we have enormous respect for and have been aware of the quality of their work for some time. I am looking forward to further development of this partnership and many new exciting features to come to AFS2". LOWI and KCGX will be available to purchase from 15th June 2017 on the OrbxDirect.com web store and will be managed by Orbx's FTX Central application for automatic updates. Likewise, for existing IPACS customers who prefer Steam LOWI and KCGX will also be available to purchase from the Steam store as DLC. Exclusive to Orbx customers who have an OrbxDirect.com account, there will be a 40% discount offered to anyone who has previously purchased those airports for FSX/P3D. Orbx intends to offer this discount for all future content sold across different sim platforms. The discount works both ways, so any customers who purchase the AFS2 version of LOWI and KCGX first, will be offered 40% off for the FSX/P3D version. LOWI and KCGX will be previewed live at Flightsimcon 2017 in Connecticut from June 10th and will include VR demonstrations as well. Watch for more announcements from Orbx/IPACS very soon!
  6. Nice selection Dolf, I really like this little aircraft.
  7. Flight One Software has developed, in partnership with Cessna Aircraft Company, the Cessna 162 Skycatcher. This aircraft was Cessna's entry into the general aviation light sport trainer aircraft category. This next generation aircraft gives you a perfect balance of efficient innovations, state-of-the-art technology with the G300 equipped cockpit, along with classic good looks. Flight One Software is proud to bring this authentic rendition of the Cessna 162 Skycatcher to simulation enthusiasts. There are over one-hundred 162 SkyCatchers flying today. Even though Cessna no longer produces the SkyCatcher, this is a quite unique aircraft to add to your simulation library. Flight One Software is glad to now make this aircraft free to the aviation community. The SkyCatcher is now a free product at Flight1.

  10. +1 Gallipoli was a real fight of attrition and we (UK and the free world) owe an indefinite debt of thanks to our brothers in arms.
