Ein kleiner Nachtrag, wie die Addon-Anbieter das 5.1-Update angehen:

  • FSLabs: hat bereits ein Update veröffentlicht und macht alle drei Airbus für 5.1 kompatibel
  • Active Sky: Bei diesem Update müssen sich Userinnen und User von Active Sky in Geduld üben. Hifi Sim möchte erst einen weiteren Fix von LM abwarten, bevor sie Active Sky auf 5.1 anpassen.
  • FFTF Dynamic: Auch hier fehlt noch das Update für die neue P3D-Version
  • ChasePlane: Hier ist das Update bereits verfügbar.
  • PMDG: Auch wenn hier noch kein offizielles Update ausgerollt wurde gibt es User, die von einer problemlosen Nutzung der PMDG-Produkte in P3D5.1 berichten.
  • Aerosoft: Hier gibt es noch kein Statement, alle Flugzeuge scheinen aber zu funktionieren.

Tja, wie hieß es in einer der Simulantenpodcasts? LM nennt keine Termine, sondern arbeiten im Hintergrund … und dann ist plötzlich und ohne Vorwarnung das Update/Release da….

Müsste Folge 4 gewesen sein? Aber ja: jetzt warten wir nur noch auf die Addon Anbieter, damit AS, FSLab und Co die 5.1 auch unterstützen …

Bin mir jetzt nicht sicher, da bei mir momentan der Download noch läuft.

Aber wenn ich mir das Changelog so anschaue, dann müssten die Flieger eigentlich laufen…

FSLabs und Active Sky beschweren sich wegen falscher Version, also doch erstmal abwarten

Bei mir ist er durch , es läuft alles außer HifiSim und Simstarter.
Und auch alles performant.

Hab den 5.1 wieder deinstalliert. Er scheint Probleme mit gewissen Effecten und/oder Objekten zu haben. hatte bei bestimmten Airports Abstürze. Vorher nicht. Aus den Triebwerken der AI-Flieger kamen weiße Quadrate.
Ich denke mal, dass nicht nur die gängigen Addons eine Anpassung brauchen, sondern auch Effecte etc.
Die Performance ist wirklich besser, aber die EA sehen auch nicht anders aus wie vorher…

Tailstrike Designs haben heute auf Facebook ihr neues Projekt angekündigt, an dessen Ende der Václav Havel Airport Prague das Licht der virtuellen Welt erblicken soll. Wer mit dem Namen des Flughafens nichts anfangen kann wird aber beim lesen des alten Namens, Prague Ruzyně International Airport, wissen das es sich um das aviatische Tor zur tschechischen Hauptstadt handelt.
Immer wieder Dienstags bringen Asobos Studios und Microsoft ein Update für die Flight Simulator heraus. Der heutige Release bringt den Simulator auf Version 1.11.5.0 und verspricht ein weiteres World Update. Nach Japan sind jetzt die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika dran. Dabei wurde die Höhendarstellung und das Luftbild in diversen Bundesstaaten noch einmal angepasst und verbessert. Am Simulator selbst wurden kleiner Verbesserungen im User Interface und bei den Fliegern vorgenommen.
