Prepar3D v5.1 brings a slew of new features and improvements across the entire platform. Enhanced Atmospherics is now default with improvements made to the entire system including better performance, lighting, reflections, and fidelity. The DX12 rendering engine has been further optimized offering additional performance and stability enhancements. Developers now have the ability to create panel and UI content using HTML5 and JavaScript opening up new possibilities for content creation and improving workflow. Multiplayer updates including vastly improved wingman and AI performance and the capability for headless mode hosting make multiplayer training scenarios even more immersive and scalable.

PILOT'S have released a fantastic trailer for their upcoming Boeing B314 for Prepar3D v4/v5:

 

The Boeing 314 Clipper was an American long-range flying boat produced by Boeing from 1938 to 1941. One of the largest aircraft of its time, it had the range to cross the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. For its wing, Boeing re-used the design from their earlier XB-15 bomber prototype.

Today I have a small preview for you of the impending release of the PMDG 737NGXu BBJ Expansion Package that is just completing testing this week. Our BBJ is based upon the highly successful NGXu simulation and includes provides a completely different kind of flying than the stock passenger airplanes upon which the BBJ/BBJ2 are based.

For this expansion we have added a bunch of new features to let you access the full range of capabilities inherent to the business flying world; a full executive interior with customized lighting, VIP ground transportation vehicles, configurable aux fuel system, new standby indications, cockpit layout changes, electronic flight bag planning customized to the executive configuration, auxiliary fuel indication and ground operations modified to reflect the servicing requirements of a high-end VIP transportation vehicle.

This package is an expansion to the highly popular PMDG 737NGXu product line and requires only that you have the base package installed. (It is not dependent upon either the 600/700 or Cargo expansions.)

We are happy to announce that we have just released the PMDG 737 NGXu BBJ Expansion for use with Prepar3D v4 and Prepar3D v5.

Just in time for you to do some VIP flying this weekend, we have pushed a full product range set of updates for the PMDG 737 NGXu product line, including the Base Package, 600/700 and CARGO expansion packages. I'll have a change list for you a bit later in the weekend, but this update cycle is targeted primarily at adding the BBJ airplanes to the product mix and handling a bunch of other cleanup details in the core 737 simulation. We also did quite a bit of work with the models in order to improve reflective qualities, PBR, texture mapping etc.

The PMDG 737 NGXu BBJ Expansion brings you the BBJ and BBJ2 airplanes with both blended winglets and split scimitar winglets, customized BBJ interiors, auxilliary fuel tanks, VIP SUV ground vehicles and a whole lot more to expand your 737 flying experience. You can read the entire BBJ preview by checking our forum.

Later this weekend we can talk a bit about VIP flying and how it will differ from your normal cattle-car airline flying experience. Until then- go grab yourself a BBJ at www.pmdg.com and we'll all meet out on the executive side of the airport where life is quite a bit more relaxed.

The development team here at Just Flight have been busy working on a new lighting plugin that takes advantage of all the latest P3D technology to produce realistic and immersive cockpit lighting.

Our upcoming 146 will be the first aircraft to feature this system and we've put together this short video to demonstrate the functionality and visual quality it offers.A In addition to realistic cockpit lighting, we have also added a useful flashlight feature for walkarounds and cold a dark starts in low light conditions.

The team are also working on a new 3D sound plugin to handle the 400+ custom sounds that will feature in the 146. More news on that soon.
