At this time third-party builders had some fascinating information to share about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, on high of an airport launch.
We begin with Miltech Simulations, which introduced a relatively intriguing upcoming add-on, Supercarrier Professional. The add-on goals to carry absolutely useful plane carriers to the simulator.
It’s going to be launched on September 14 on the developer’s personal retailer and Orbx Direct, with an official market launch shortly after.
Here is what the add-on will entail.

Subsequent, we get an replace with new screenshots concerning the Pilatus PC-12 by SimWorks Studios. The studio expects to finish the plane subsequent week and ship it to Pilatus for approval on Friday.
On the artwork facet, the inside textures are 99% last and subsequent week we’ll put some ending touches and shut out with the addition of passengers and cargo. The outside will get some extra polish between now and the discharge, primarily adjusting the shading. We can even attempt to add some cool new issues to it, however extra on that if we make it.
Plane programs are full except 3-4 minor gadgets. Of these, the ITT simulation has been one of the crucial troublesome options to implement.
The plane will likely be ITT restricted after, 12000ft, that means you’ll have to step by step energy again to keep away from exceeding 760 °C.
Residual ITT has been refined because the Kodiak and can drop sooner within the air. Dry-motoring the engine with the inertial separator closed will make ITT drop sooner, as all of the air will now be directed into the engine, pushing the recent air out of the exhausts. Lastly, the double ITT spike on startup lastly appears to work.
Avionics are additionally of their last levels. All the performance is now in-built, and subsequent week will likely be spent refining the final recognized bugs and correcting the EFIS coloration.
The PC-12’s Avionics have saved us busy for greater than 12 months as we have been attempting to study the brand new abilities, whereas basically creating a whole avionics suite from scratch.
On the flight mannequin entrance, we wish to do one last tweak to the flaps earlier than calling it for good. We’ll quickly be on the mercy of our take a look at pilots for the ultimate inexperienced mild.
Lastly, Mike is ready for the above to be completed in an effort to put the ending touches on the sound bundle. It’s value noting that the sound atmosphere has “silently” benefitted from enhancements executed within the electrical system.
The remaining duties are quantity balancing and finalizing the 4-blade propeller sounds earlier than calling it.
Whereas ready for the evaluation, we’ll proceed testing and enhancing the plane as a lot as we are able to to make it an amazing launch.
Lastly, MFSG launched a smaller Japanese airport, Asahikawa Airport (RJEC) in Hokkaido. It is out there on Simmarket for $16.32. It contains the next options:

We additionally supply in-depth evaluations of Orbx’s Stockholm Arlanda and Oslo Gardermoen Airports, iniBuilds’ New York-JFK Airport, and RHDSimulations’ Boeing 767-300ER.
