P3Dv2. If you have been wanting some clarity regarding Milviz and their stance regarding Prepar3D and its complex EULA, Creative Director, Colin Pearson, has finally shed some clarity on the company's stance and their direction regarding the platform. Long story short, good times ahead for those of us who are fans of both Milviz and P3D. This shows yet another positive step forward to P3D on behalf of the development community. What you can expect however, as the other aircraft developers have had to do, is purchase separate products for v2. There is just no way around this and I am sure users will understand. Check out what Colin had to say.

P3Dv2. With the introduction of Prepar3D v2's SimDirector, the possibilities to setup missions and learning scenarios are endless. In this particular mission, I have setup a Swedish Navy Visby Class Corvette just offshore, roughly 1 NM from the Burj Al Arab and positioned my Bell 407 on the hotel's helipad. Join me as I head out from the hotel to pick up some VIPs on the Swedish Navy Corvette.

FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. Majestic Software have just released v1.008 of their 2013 masterpiece, the Dash 8 Q400. I've searched through their forums, and there doesn't seem to be an official announcement just yet, but I can tell you that the update is already available through Simmarket. The v1.008 installer is a complete replacement for all previous versions, so you will need to remove your existing Q400 installation before installing this new one.
FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. Orbx's resident "First and Last Shot Wizard", Iain Emms, is at it again, this time showing off the Cork, Donegal and Kilkenny regions of Orbx's Ireland scenery.
FSX. Very interesting. With the news of REX preparing to roll out it's next product, ActiveSkyNext has delivered on it's promised release date of December 9th. As for which product will be best, that's anyone's guess. We still don't know at this moment what the REX4 Direct's pricing strategy will be. I can say this for now: ASN's pricing is as follows: $30 for current customers looking to upgrade and $50 for new customers. I have heard rumors it's not compatible with P3D v2 but have not confirmed this myself yet. So he question now is, should users buy now? or wait for the next update of info from REX. That's up to you...

FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. If you have been wondering what the guys at Real Environment Extreme have been cooking up lately, wander no further! The team has been gearing up for P3D v2 and the first set of previews are stunning to say the least. The list of features is so vast, it's actually far too much to mention here on ADX. We will happily send you off to the new REX4 Direct website for all the information you need. But I can already tell you, you will not yet find the answers these questions: What is the price? Is there a special upgrade price for existing users? Will it be released before end of year? I can already say this, this is a totally new build software program from the ground up and it ain't for X-Plane. Have a look! Thank to Adi Sahar as always for the tip! Oh and before I forget: Bandwidth Warning!

FSX. With all the good news surrounding PMDG announcing their future move to Prepar3D, it's high time to head back and have a look at the progress on the continued 777 project. At present, the 777 is PMDG's most successful product to date and as I am sure Rob would tell you, it's also their most proud. The 777 good as it is, is not done yet! The 300ER is currently in development and we have 1 screenshot to show! Will they get it out in time for Santa to deliver all his goods? We'll see! On a side note, with having personally only discovered the FS9 PMDG 737, I am really looking forward to some fun time with the 777 and NGX in P3D. Oh wait. Did I say fun in P3D? No I didn't mean to say that! I meant to say, learning time. Yeah. Let's go with that. Whew!
P3Dv2. It's a video! And no better to display the quality of Oslo v2 than in the community's newest simulator version: Prepar3D v2! Here, Joerlend shows us full Prepar3D v2 compatibility as well as the timelapse and shadow features. Will this be the last mega release before the end of 2013? We are watching very closely indeed!
FS9/FSX/P3D. If you have been waiting for that right time to snap up your favorite UK airport, now is the time! Many of you took advantage of Black Friday sales and with Christmas right on the horizon, I am quite certain we will see even more sales deals pop up. Head over to UK2000 and take advantage now! As always, I will do my best to cover as many deals as possible.
FSX/P3D. The next installment in the MSE 2.0 Ultra-Res Cities series is now available from PC Aviator Australia displaying native 50 cm resolution scenery the US nation's capital and the entire Baltimore/Washington Terminal Control Area. That's around around 13,000 square miles all displayed at 50 cm per pixel. Head over and check it out!
FSX/P3D. The race for 2014 is here and there is no stronger way for a developer to get the word out on imminent release products like the pre-order option! The Bell 407 sales page is now online and you can drop your cash today. As for when you will get it, well... I imagine it will be very soon! Thanks to Mark Smith for the tip!

FSX. JetStream Design has announced Little Rock National as their next project. If Their Marseilles Provence is any indication, this will be an outstanding rendition of KLIT. I flew into Little Rock in the real world many, many moons ago, and it was a very interesting place to hang out. Looking forward to this new Southern US destination.
FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. More awesome from SIM720! Stornoway Airport is now available for some island hopping fun. Located on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Stornoway Airport provides scheduled passenger service for the area and is a HM Coastguard helicopter base as well. Includes custom auto-gen outside the airport boundary and custom static aircraft. A nice scenic flight from SIM720's Oban Airport. Now they can focus on finishing up Inverness....I'm digging all this Scottish love.
