Aerosoft A330 Professional Preview

That's great news Mathijs! You guys must be wrapping things up nicely then? I take it that no decision has yet been made for the A330-200 and other engine variants?

 

Well in a project like this you release when you feel the product is good enough. There will be many parts we'll need to work on, some smallish features to add.  The list with things we LIKE to do is many many pages long. 90% of that will never be done but will pop up in a later project. Good example is the EFB, I really wanted that in the A320 but the technology we wanted to use (web stuff) was not hard to handle. Now I got Robert who is a wizard with that stuff and things became possible. 

 

We never do an aircraft product and leave it, it's a continuous development.

But can you make the airplane use more CPU instead of GPU for some users?

 

Utterly impossible, sorry. It would mean months of work simplifying the model. Won't happen. We are very much preparing for FS2020 that most likely will be more demanding on GPU then ever before.

Updated textures for A320 mean PBR textures?

Remember discount promised to first people who joined CFD club 😉

 

Yes and Yes. But keep in mind FS2020 will play a large part in our plans. So at this moment we do not make any solid plans beyond the CRJ professional and A330 professional.

Guess this means I finally need to update from 4.4 to 4.5. We are getting closer. Looking forward to it!

 

ALL of our products are always only tested on the latest released version of the sim. It might work on older versions but that is not guaranteed.

Is CPDLC going to be ready from release or launched in a later update (really excited bout this one and i wish we got some video)?

 

I have no idea. 

 

CPLDC in our sims is 100% depending on what VATSIM. IVAO or POSCON can offer. It's a client that needs to be linked to a server and at this moment none of there organisations have a solid SDK.  POSCON seems to be in the lead.  What is possible at this moment is the Hoppy route and we are testing with that, but this is something we rather not do (and that is NO negative comment on the people who manage that).  Keep in mind our developers costs a shit load per day and we really prefer solid services to link to. Smaller developer companies can take bigger risks here.

45 Euro for the upgrade cost of the A330 is a little more than I was hoping for but I'll pay it anyhow.

 

Yes, as I wrote I am not totally happy with that.

 

But it is not an upgrade but a new aircraft. An aircraft that shares a lot of the system with the smaller busses but we decided a while back to share all those developments with the existing customers. If you bought the A320 series on release you now have a lot of fully redone systems.  From completely new cabin pressure systems, via fully new pneumatics to a lot of new features in the MCDU.  Months of development work you basically got for free. That's why I feel it is reasonable to ask the price. 

 

Compare it to other add-on developers... See how they resell the same code over and over again. I do not say they are wrong, every developer does that. But at least we try to make it palatable.  The average Aerosoft customer  over close to 10 of our products.  Look at the update price of the CRJ professional.....

I am looking forward to seeing this. Which version on the A330 is coming out 200 or 300? And will there be many liveries to choose from?

 

A330-343 (Rolls Royce Engines).

 

There is more information about this in the last 2 pages here in the forums.

 

Best wishes.

Will the new also load cargo and payload via EFB?/Gsx lvl2 Integration looks awesome

 

We kept that in the configurator. The EFB was really one of the last things we added and needed to limit what we could move. Should be done later though.

One Question to the EFB, will it work same as The one in the PMDG 747 an will don't work with reshade an i can't use the Charts ?

 

No idea, we absolutely never test with non-standard shaders. 

 

The people who model the aircraft spend months on getting all colors exactly as they believe works well (on calibrated displays). Almost all non-standard shaders compress part of the color spectrum and thus simple remove colors. We seen some screenshots from customers with shaders that removed 20% (!!) of all colors.

Now we have an aproximate A330 release date, can we know the project of the hi end aircraft you talked about? If not, when could we have some hints? 

 

Did you check the CRJ pro? That's what we worked on simultaneous.

And believe me, that's high end.... Some of our very reputable testers (actually real pilots) called it the probably 'the best aircraft release in 2019 so far'.

 I recommend Aerosoft to use a more stringent serial number system, otherwise it would be unfair to users who purchase genuine products.

 

Believe me, there is no way to make a product safe from hacking it.

We all saw what happened to FSL who really invested into anti piracy systems and even those with really tight systems like PMDG, Leonardo, etc. still end up on the known piracy sites. It might take a week or two longer, but it's not a question "if" it will be pirated, but "when".
Therefore we don't see the logic in investing thousands upon thousands of euros into such a system, which in the end also means a pain for a genuine user if a false positive occures.

We rather accept that piracy can never be 100% prevented and make life easy for the genuine customer than to overdo it with a system which in the end isn't failsafe either.

 I have a lot of Aerosoft products, including airplanes, airports and navigation tools. They are great products. I recommend Aerosoft to use a more stringent serial number system, otherwise it would be unfair to users who purchase genuine products.

 

I have a full account of all Adobe apps, pay a lot for that every month. And still I use a cracked version of most apps because the DRM they use has a problem with my machine, Adobe was not able to assist me with that.  And that is pretty much what I think about strict DRM, it makes life harder for honest customers and is hardly a problem for people who want to steal it. Around 20% of all support we do is about problems with DRM (mainly customers who need it reset). That costs money. And we only get money from paying customers. There is no logic in that.

 

A solid product, a good price and good support. That is effective against piracy.

One subject I don't think has been discussed yet (at least not recently). Does this Airplane have some built in time compression system like the 777?

I am wondering since this could be more interesting with this plane compared to the 320s. I remember that the old versions were a bit sensitive to time compression

and maybe something has been done for this? I never feel the need to compress time with the 320/321 but on a long haul(777/787) I usually set the time to 4x over Atlantic.

 

It's been discussed a thousand times and the answer remains the same as before ;)

No, I am not a troll.  I've been active in the flightsim community for many years and have developed a number of freeware sceneries for FSX.  I have also purchased several Aerosoft products over the years and have always been impressed with the quality of the products.

 

The language I used in my critique was overly harsh and for this I apologize.  My criticism, i.e. that development of the A330 has been excessively slow, I still believe is valid.  I have indeed been following this thread, and the original deleted one, about the A330 development, for *years*, although I admit that I have not read every single post and I have not read any posts over the last several months.  Frankly, I became so disillusioned with the constant delays of release that I simply gave up and stopped following as it was always the same old teases but nothing ever concrete.

 

My memory isn't perfect, but I am 99% certain that developers in the original A330 forum stated that it would be released in 2018, but then it was delayed yet again.  Moreover, the A330 development forum has existed for several years.  The internal knowledge that you have that it has only been in actual development this year I and others could not know, so I take offense to you essentially calling me a liar.

 

I really hope that you do release it before year's end as I will be an enthusiastic buyer.

 

Thank you.

 

 

 

If you want it exact,  it was first announced for a December 2015 release.
Then LM released a 64bit simulator for which a majority of the code had to be rewritten, then it was decided that the A330 shall not simply be a copy of the A320 code, etc.

Literally the only difference between Aerosoft and other developers in the respect of development time is that Aerosoft announces their projects rather early and communicate about them totally open and honest. I know of more than one developer who simply keeps deleting any criticism from their forums.

Developments may seem longer in Aerosoft but that's simply only because projects are announced very early.

For now, many more Chinese aviation fans buy the FS software(X-Plane11 and P3D) and the plugins(airplanes and the scenery). About your comment, I think u have a little “racism”

 

We at Aerosoft are firmly against any form for racism and it will never, not EVER be tolerated in our house (Aerosoft Forums). 

 

I read the post in question, and I didn't think it had any racism based content.  As someone who is formally educated in computer security, I can tell you that a very high percentage of malware and computer based attacks do indeed originate in China (if you run a firewall, check your log!).  That's not racism, it's just fact.  Moreover, many people who deal with Malware will tell you that malware originators around the world often use Chinese characters (for a lot of reasons), which is why I believe @marcusjm said what he did

 

You are not only right, but most welcome to challenge any post here that you feel may be racist.  But in the future, we would appreciate you using the "Report Post" feature (located in the top right of the post window), which will allow for us to deal with this outside the forum and more importantly it will ensure the matter gets a LOT  higher level of attention.

 

Thank you again, and my very best wishes.

The A330 has a unique landing experience in that the touchdown of the rear wheels happen in 2 stages and causes the airplane to behave differently than most, i hope you will capture that immersion both visually as well as from a physics/dynamics POV

Absolutely not, you don't even notice it in the real plane according to our advisors. It's one of those simmer'isms once again. People tend to see the videos and think it has to have an influence. It doens't.

Aha thanx. It's one of those things I seem to have to train forever to do right :).

 

The trick is not to look at the instruments at the end, but to look at the end of the runway from about 50ft and then to fly it down by feeling.

Doesn't take too long to get right if you know the right procedures.

A manual will be supplied. Video tutorials are not really AS's forte. But who knows....

Sure, but it is basically a useless manual as I am 100% sure you will be able to use all functions without a manual!
