  1. I am considering doing a major update of the Twin Otter aimed at P3d v4. This update would include a few minor fixes here and there but would mainly focus on adding Connected Flight Deck and dynamic light. As this is a lot of work and does not bring in a lot of additional sales it can't be done for free. Think about a 7 euro update fee or something. How would you react to such an update and are there any specific things you would like to see included in such an update?
  2. Because the previous topic was merged with something else I open a new one with two new images. To be clear about a few issues: Release is expected in 2016 (but hey, shit happens) We start with the A333 with RR engines but we might expand, nothing decided yet though, a full coverage of all possible models is not our goal As with the current busses we focus on the task of the pilots as this allows us to make an realistic product for a reasonable price. We do not include anything that does not occur at least once every 5000 hours of flight As with the current busses we will try to include many features that are normally only added with other add-ons And yes it will have wingflex.
  3. Our Virtual Airline program is started to support Virtual Airlines. We feel they are a vital part of our hobby and offer (just like real ATC by IVAO and VATSIM) a way to enhance your simulation. We offer the pilots if registered VA’s discount on selected products (currently FSFK, FSMap, Airbus X Extended A320/A321 and PFPX). In exchange we ask nothing, we do not want to email your users, we do not ask for banners. Nothing. Getting in the program is simple. One of the administrators needs to contact us on support@aerosoft.com and tell is something about the VA (we like some idea of the size for example). We then add your VA to the list. After that the administrator can ask the pilots who wants to use the discount and ask us for the discount codes. So we do not handle this with the pilots, just with the administrators. These products are currently available: - Twin Otter Extended - Professional Flight Planner X - FS Flight Keeper - FSMap - Thessaloniki X - Mega Airport Oslo - Maastricht Aachen Airport - Mega Airport Dublin - Airbus A318/A319 - Airbus A320/A321 - Airbus A318/A319 & A320/A3231 Bundle - Mega Airport Rome - Mega Airport Zurich v2 - SimStarter NG - Aspen Extended - Valencia X - Mega Airport Frankfurt V2 - NavDataPro Charts (year account)
  4. Phileas and Passepartout did the trip over the Pacific aboard the steamer the General Grant that obviously has more range than almost all of the aircraft available to us simmers. Now I could be hopeful and say the A330 will be ready at that date but ..... We got several options: I could try to get a good discount from PMDG for one of their long distance aircraft It's a 22 day period and we could just decide that people have to find their own route as long as they are in San Francisco in time. We got the F-14 Tomcat that has inflight refueling Any other suggestions?
  5. The rules We will follow the route as close as possible. No shortcuts. If multiple airports are possible you are free to choose whatever one you like. If you aircraft is not capable of making the trip, you are allowed to seek an alternative route, but will stay as close as possible to the original route. We will fly with real weather. Any aircraft is allowed. Changing aircraft enroute is allowed, even encouraged, but you must stay in your class You are allowed to fly in a team of maximum two pilots where any pilot can fly any leg All flight periods start at midnight and end at midnight (GMT time) and the route must be completed in that period. The event starts at 8:45 p.m. on 2 October and ends at the same time on December 21st. You will create a forum topic where the first topic will contain your complete route, aircraft and other details before October 1st. You will update this topic (let’s call it a diary) while enroute. At the end of the event all people who flown the complete route can vote on their favorite pilots (you are not allowed to vote for yourself). There will be 2 classes (so two winners): Modern aircraft (after 1970) Historical aircraft (pre 1970) London to Suez 7 days Oct 2 Oct 9 Suez to Bombay 13 days Oct 10 Oct 23 Bombay to Calcutta 3 days Oct 23 Oct 26 Calcutta to Hong Kong 13 days Oct 26 Nov 8 Hong Kong to Yokohama 6 days Nov 8 Nov 14 Yokohama to San Francisco 22 days Nov 14 Dec 5 (date line pass) San Francisco to New York City 7 days Dec 5 Dec 12 New York to London 9 days Dec 12 Dec 21
  6. For a long time I wanted a high end airport in South Africa and I am glad to announce Mea Airport Johannesburg. The project is in full swing, looking great and will be pretty high end. As you can see the modeling is strong and we bought a great 50 cm image as the background.
  7. Guess the airport we just got the sat images for (and boy oh boy it is hard these day to get those legally and for a acceptable price) and you get it for free. If it is not guessed in 10 minutes I will be very very disappointed.
  8. Simplanet orders

    We have changed our policy regarding the orders of Aerosoft products that were bought at the now closed Simplanet shop. This change is only for products were Aerosoft is the publisher (or of course the developer). This is the procedure to move that order to our shop: Contact us at support@aerosoft.com and provide us proof of purchase, we need to be 100% sure you did indeed bought the product We will reply with instructions on how to create an order in our shop that will not be charged (a so called 'press order'). Do not forget to make a comment with the order referring to the ticket created at support@aerosoft.com! Orders without comments are deleted. We will then manually release that order so you can download it. Please allow us some time to handle it, it is a rather time consuming process and we can only do a certain amount a day.

  10. For people who want to update their flight planning software to export to the CRJ, here is the SDK for that part. CRJ Flightplan Format.pdf
  11. Anybody any problem with adding single engine aircraft to the more demanding 'historical' class? I mean it is a lot more demanding to fly a Cirrus SR20 around the globe then it is to do that in a B747. We'll need to rename the class, but that's easy.
  12. First images! And yes, we know there are other projects covering the same airport, but as explained often, we do not see that as a problem.
  13. Lovely don't you think? The lighting in X-Plane really is a step up from P3D v3.
  14. Quick name an aircraft that does not have the stall speed mentioned in the manuals (but it is somewhere around 25 knots!), uses about as much oil as petrol and only has one engine despite it being absolutely massive. Right, The Antonov An-2, the "Annushka" (Annie) or as Nato called the "Colt". Happy to announce a new project made by the OctopusG (flight model by Alexander Metzger!) that shows of this amazing aircraft in great detail. Get ready for some weird systems because this aircraft has them. Also get ready not to go anywhere fast because boy, this is one slow aircraft. But it is absolutely brilliant to find you can land such a big aircraft in the tiniest of spots (old joke, An-2 pilot lands and said to his co-pilot "what a strange runway, it very short but incredibly wide."). It's a pretty advanced simulation where you really have to keep an eye on the engine and do not forget to maintain it well (drain the oil sludge for example) otherwise an already exciting aircraft can get suddenly even more exciting. The glider ratio of the An-2 is close to negative as I found out. Progress in development is good as you can see in the images and it should be available before long for FSX:SP2, FSX:STEAM, P3d V3 and P3d V4 (with full V4 functionality).
  15. I just understood from Hans they most likely and finally found a way to avoid the yoke hiding issue that plagued some systems. Not solve as in knowing what caused it, but a way to avoid it. Some result though. Friday evening 21:20 local time. Boy, we need a life.
  16. Madeira Mesh Mega Topic

    We decided to make one topic for Madeira mesh issues to avoid a lot of overlapping topics. Start by reading with the developer here explains, it will solve almost all of the issues. Please do NOT discuss any other issues but mesh conflicts here!
  17. You should know by now that at Aerosoft we feel a very high degree of transparency and interaction with our (potential) customers is of the greatest importance. And that goes from top to bottom, you see the students that take an internship at Aerosoft on these forums but also the management. If there is anything you would like to tell the top of Aerosoft, this is the topic to do so. Our CEO, Winfried Diekmann, will read what's written here and will, where needed, respond. Just be patient and asking him anything technical is useless as he is not involved with the products directly. His simulations are all financial and in Excel! Wenn du alles lieber auf Deutsch besprechen möchtest, klicke hier.
  18. Talk to the management? Here's your chance...

    Topic temporarily closed because of a series of posts that were simply not acceptable.
  19. Lukla X Mount Everest has been updated to include installers for FSX:STEAM, P3D v3 and P3D v4.
  20. Talk to the management? Here's your chance...

    Gabriel, please note that you confirmed twice that download orders are final, that we can't do much after you clicked okay. For our own products we often can do a exchange, for some products like those from PMDG that is (was?) not possible. That is Aerosoft policy and has been like that for close to a decade. That's what i simply HAD to let you know when you contacted us. If my CEO wants to make an exception or wants to change the policy regarding these kind of sales that is of course his right, one of the advantages of being the CEO, right? But it would not be just to blame the support of Aerosoft as you do. We would love to simply replace these orders and get happy customers. At the moment you did your request however I was simply not able to do so. I am glad that with the help of Winfried we might be able to assist you.
  21. Aerosoft Airbus 2018 editions preview

    I do not think that that is possible.
  22. In case you lunatics want to go round again (but now in just a few flights), check here: Start with the rules.
  23. US Cities X and P3D v4

    We are preparing new installer for his products that are compatible. Only then can we call them compatible.
  24. G/A and fix on PFD gone

    You mean you can't display them?
  25. Error - REV ARMED indication on EICAS

    We'll have a look.
