just received an email from Stefan. Now, the -900 exterior model is finished. Next are liveries and other small things. Enjoy.
A few days ago Stefan finished the CRJ 700 model and I must say, it’s just awesome. He’s working on the 900 series model now. Of course this is just a conversion of the 700, so it shouldn’t take long.
Everybody else is hard at work and we hope we can start beta testing pretty soon.
I just received an email from Stefan containing the first in-game screenshots of the CRJ-700. The aircraft model and textures is of course still work in progress. More to come very soon. Enjoy.
Well, as I said. Never say never. Thanks to the help of Aerosoft we were finally able to find a modeller who actually does a model and we’re very grateful for this. Take a look at Stefan’s stunning work. More pictures to follow very soon…
Some time has passed since the last update on our CRJ project and again we had some changes in our team. Owen Hewitt and Nick Landolfi unfortunately had to leave the project due to personal reasons not related to the CRJ. They’re succeeded by Aerosoft’s Martin Schmieschek – though most of you might not know his name, a lot of you already own scenery and aircraft he worked on. The basic 3d aircraft and virtual cockpit models are already done and he’s working on details now. But don’t think it’s already almost done. It’s the details that require most of the time.
On the panel side of things, I’m happy to announce that I moved the FMC navigation data into a SQLite database. This improves both, stability and performance of the FMC code. When the CRJ is released, it’s going to contain a utility to transfer Navigraph’s Cheyenne/Fokker Navdata into the SQLite database.
Robin Bilgil sent me two new screenshots of the 2d cockpit for you to look at. I’d preferred to have them filled with some life, but work on the FMC kept me from doing this in the past few weeks.
Today, Florian has released a new beta version of Service Pack 2.1 for the Digital Aviation Fokker 70/100 product. This Service Pack introduces a change which became necessary due to changes of the inner workings of GDIplus in Windows 7.
Download links and a complete list of changes and fixes are available at our forums.
Finally! Aerosoft just released the Cheyenne Update to their customers. Customers at Simmarket will follow shortly. There will be no updates, only full versions, so please uninstall the Cheyenne from your PC, get the new version via your Aerosoft/Simmarket account and do a fresh installation.
You can find a list of additions, changes and fixes in this thread on our forums.
Please also note that we changed we use version number 4.0 instead of 2.0 because the FS9 versions already had numbers like 3.4. Version 4.0 is also we only version that will be supported in the future.
It has taken time, and quite a lot of it, but now, Service Pack 2 for the Fokker 70/100 is finally complete.
Service Pack 2 Download from Flight1 Software (~12.5 MB)
The download is an all-in-one package for all CD and download versions for FS2004 as well as FSX. Service Pack 1 is required before install.
A new full installation including SP2 is being prepared by Flight1 and will be available at some point next week.
