VSKYLABS DC-3 now ready for VR!

This is one hell of an airplane and certainly one of VSKYLABS best products thus far! VSKYLABS’s popular DC-3/C-47 now received an update to allow VR operations of this beautiful aircraft. See the announcement:

“A VR-related update for the VSKYLABS DC-3/C-47 Flying Lab Project was just released! It is a minor update only, allowing full VR operations, as a preparation for X-Plane 11.20 (now beta). The update is ONLY for the X-Plane 11 version of the aircraft within the package, setting it to v2.5b (January 8 2018). The VSKYLABS DC-3/C-47 Flying Lab Project is now ready for full VR experience with X-Plane 11.20, which is currently in beta phase. Both Yokes, all levers, knobs, switches, handles – including the lower and aft landing gears and flaps handles are defined for VR operations. The project is nowadays undergoing a major testing and evaluation for VR operations, and further VR related refinements and additions are to be expected. The package is also undergoing a massive development process, which will result in a series of amazing upcoming updates! Cheers! JetManHuss 

Following yesterday’s update v2.5b VSKYLABS released another bugfix update v2.5c today. This bugfix release fixes “issues with opposite pitch inputs”!

Skyline previews KORD Chicago O’Hare!

First of all I am terribly sorry I didn’t post any news yesterday. I was totally busy painting my kitchen (boy that sucked) and I just didn’t find the time. That being said, have a look at Skyline’s latest three preview screenshots of their upcoming KORD Chicago O’Hare Intl posted yesterday on their Facebook page here. As covered here KORD Chicago O’Hare Intl is developed “using the latest technologies like PBR materials, custom mesh etc. Textures in FullHD and performance friendly!”. Cool!

Skyline’s KORD Chicago O’Hare Intl should be available in the not too distant future since it’s already 75% completed. Yay!

ToLiSs A319 Teaser Videos!

As we approach the release of the ToLiSs A319which claims to be a study-level simulation of the actual aircraft, preview videos from the beta test team pop up on the web!

That said, here are two interesting teasers for you to enjoy. One is available on Twitch here, the other one is hosted on YouTube here.

I really wonder what y’all think about this model. I wonder if this will live up to its big brother, the FlightFactor A320! We’ll know soon. Release is scheduled for this month. Stay tuned!
