Dassault Mercure 100 Released!

Conceived as a competitor to the Boeing 737 100 & 200, but optimized for short range flights of about 2000 Km, the Dassault Mercure 100 promised high speed, high efficiency, advanced technology and Reliability. Although it successfully materialized these promises, its short range proved unpopular, being sold only in 10 units to Air Inter. One of the first airliners to feature CAT-III auto landing, and the first with a HUD. The Mercure had an impressive life with Air Inter, 360,000 flight hours, carrying 44 million passengers in 440,000 flights with no accidents, and a 98% in-service reliability over its years of service from 1973 to 1995.

 

This Aircraft is distributed exclusively by the Historic Jetliners Group. HJG has provided the sound package and performed extensive testing. Several improvements have been made under their suggestion! Please head over to their web page to download the Mercure. Be sure to download the appropriate base pack for your Flight simulator version.

 

 

OSM World - South America

OSM Wolrd: South America is a comprehensive vector scenery package. It updates coastlines, lakes, rivers, streams, roads, railroads, power lines, and adds polygon urban areas. All at a resolution of a point every 10 meters! (In FS-2004, a pixel on the ground is a square of 5x5 meters, so this scenery is as high as you can get without causing any trouble)

The scenery covers the South American area.

Due to the massive nature of the package it is only available in the AVSim Library (login needed but free).

Piaggio PD-808 V2.2 Released!

A new version for the Piaggio PD-808!

Published as an update for the FS-2004 edition, it is a complete package for FS-X! The new content is:

  • 3D models updated with full virtual cabin/cockpit for all versions (full exterior included from virtual cockpit view)
  • Windshield heating does not overheat unless the external temperature is above 30°C
  • Widescreen panel (4/3 version still available)

 

This is big news for FS-X users since the 2.1 package was never released for their sim until now! Only, they get V2.2X directly! For FS-X users, this is not a FS-2004 port-over, but a Direct-X 10 compatible model, featuring FS-X eye-candy such as bump mapping, self shadows, and even virtual cockpit shadow mapping!

 

FS-9 users get the upgrade here:

Piaggio P-180 V3.1 Update

The Piaggio P-180 V3.0 has been updated! The optional upgrade package includes:

  • Misbehaving clickspots: altitude selector now is only +-100ft, easily operable via mouse wheel.
  • Missing Recognition light effect: the file was mistakenly not included in the 3.0 release
  • lowered ITTs: for better hot climate behavior; now only very (very) hot days cause problems.
  • passenger removed form cabin
  • Heading indicator/gyro now automatically synchronizes periodically.
  • loading time reduced: CAB gauge is now packed properly

And, for FS-X users only:

  • Autopilot ALT Mode misbehavior: this function now performs as intended (the problem was not present in FS-9).
  • High-resolution cabin and cockpit textures.

For FS-2004 Users: Piaggio P-180 Avanti

For FS-X Users: Piaggio P-180 Avanti (DX-10)
