X-Plane 11 Vought F4U-1 Corsair X-Plane 11 Vought F4U-1 Corsair 2.0 HOT

X-Plane 11 Vought F4U-1 Corsair 2.0. The Vought F4U Corsair is an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. The Corsair was designed and operated as a carrier-based aircraft, and entered service in large numbers with the U.S. Navy in late 1944 and early 1945. It quickly became one of the most capable carrier-based fighter-bombers of World War II. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured in 16 separate models. Its 1942-53 production run was the longest of any U.S. piston-engined fighter. By Stephane Toledo.

  • X-Crafts previews E-Jets for X-Plane 11

    X-Crafts has released a preview video on there upcoming EJets for X-Plane on the X-Crafts youtube channel. X-Craft goes over the procedure to start the plane from cold as well the procedure to take-off. The video shows some of the features that will be coming to the X-Crafts E-Jets payware in the future. One of the new features is the EFB which can be used for performance calculations as well as checklists and to interact with the ground which is becoming a community favourite. Just watching the video gives you a idea of what X-Crafts is aiming for and a idea of how the simulation of systems will be simulated in X-plane.  No FMS has been shown but the video does say that the feature is still in development and will have a selection of 3 different FMS Options. The E-Jets Family was announced by X-Crafts in 2020 and just looking at the video shows that the development is well underway. No release date has been provided. In the mean time why not view the video below.
  • MSFS 2020 April 29th, 2021 Dev Update

    The Microsoft Flight Simulator team has issued their weekly update, but no major news this week. Asobo has released an add-on (extra cost) airplane for the sim, the Top Rudder 103 ultralight. There is also some updates to the SDK. The Top Rudder 103 ultralight plane developed by Asobo Studio came out yesterday and is available for $9.99 in the Marketplace. SDK Update Documentation: We made some changes on the Flight Model section, created a Flights & Missions section, added a page about ice on aircraft models, and updated flightmodel.cfg with new parameters. More to come! Dev Mode: We fixed the "add custom asset group" window which wouldn't close when creating a new non-templated asset group. We fixed the font displayed in the release notes window. The Audio team fixed a shared convolution IR which didn't load in Wwise remote and added Built-in Emitter & Listener cone game-parameters. In the Scenery Editor, we fixed the windsocks with the wrong orientation, and we fixed a char being filtered in taxiway sign content text entry. SimConnect: We added the GEAR_SKIDDING_FACTOR SimVar.

  • VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot': F-19 WIP Screen Shots

    In today's post, we will be focusing mostly on the F-19 engines: The original late 80's Testors F-19 Stealth Fighter concept aircraft was deeply analyzed by VSKYLABS Aerospace Simulation experts, and was re-constructed bottom up, using the most advanced flight simulation software up to date: X-Plane 12. Reminder: X-Plane is not a combat simulation. The VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot': F-19 Stealth Fighter project orientation is *Test-Flight* simulation of an experimental/concept jet fighter aircraft that allows to explore and challenge its design goals using X-Plane 12 advanced flight simulation environment (aerodynamics, physics, weather, systems, handling and performance, mission-oriented test flights and more!). General aircraft specifications of the VSKYLABS F-19 are based on the original 80's concept specs (which also existed in the 87' MicroProse F-19 Steath Fighter simulations). However, following the thorough analysis and test flights process during development, a few modifications/additional systems were added to the basic design, allowing a more probable mission-capable characteristics. One example for such modification is the F-19 engines: The original F-19 concept aircraft was assumed to be powered by two non-after-burning F404-GE-100 engines. The F404 engine first flight, btw, was in the 'new' U.S. Navy's F/A-18 fighter/attack aircraft in November 1978. In real-life, the F404-GE-100 derivative was flown extensively during the Northrop F-20 Tigershark program (1982 - 1986), delivered 11,000 pounds of thrust dry and 17,000 pounds using afterburner, along with advanced digital electronic control and improved reliability. The selection of twin NON-after-burning F404-GE-100 engines in the F-19 80's concept was based on the requirement of reducing the heat signature of the stealth fighter. The airframe incorporated two semi-hidden thermal-efficient exhaust nozzles, "hidden" by the large vertical fins, and equipped with an airflow cooling system. The thorough mission-oriented test flights of the VSKYLABS F-19 during development in X-Plane 12 lead to the decision of adding after-burner capability, to improve its maximum weight take-off performance, to allow a low-altitude deep penetration profiles with supersonic capability, and to increase survivability in case of detection or interception by enemy fighters. Following this decision, the VSKYLABS F-19 two non-after burning F404-GE-100 engines were replaced by two after-burning General Electric F414-GE-400 (these are powering the F/A-18E/F variants). The change of power-plant increased the dry thrust from ~11,000 pounds to ~13,000 pounds. Maximum thrust however increased from ~11,000 pounds to ~22,000 pounds...that is twice the power of the non-after-burning F404-GE-100 engines. Fuel-consumption wise, the F-19 airframe capability of carrying internal fuel is limited due to its size and shape, and using the afterburners extensively reduces its combat radius significantly. For this reason the use of afterburner power in the VSKYLABS F-19 is restricted-by-system, and to enable after-burners operation during flight - the pilot must "pass" through two guard switches (one for each engine). Some complementary information regarding the attached WIP screenshots: Weapons - Unlike the 87' MicroProse F-19, the VSKYLABS F-19 is not designated as a multi-role attack aircraft, and it can carry a very limited weapons-suit: Two AIM-120 AMRAMM Air to Air missiles, carried in two separate forward weapon bays, and a single AGM-158 JASSM (cruise missile) carried in the central belly weapon bay. The VSKYLABS F-19, like the F-117A Stealth Fighter, does not carry guns nor heat-seeking missiles for close-air combat/self defense. The idea behind the weapons selection in the VSKYLABS F-19 was to adapt the F-117A operational concept (no air-to-air capability, limited air to ground capability for pin-point targeting accuracy), and to fall in line with the plausible capability of carrying payloads in the F-19 airframe (mass and volume). The two AIM-120 missiles are intended for intercepting enemy AWACS aircraft (with BVR capability), and the single AGM-158 low signature cruise missile is intended for deep penetration, pin-point accuracy targeting. External fuel-tanks - Like the modern usage of non-stealthy external fuel tanks in stealth fighters (as seen in the F-35/F-22), the VSKYLABS F-19 is capable of carrying two external fuel tanks, extending its combat radius and allowing certain 'special mission' profiles. These are drop-tanks and can be dropped when needed (to reduce drag, to reduce radar signature, to increase maneuverability in case of 'trouble' etc...). The aircraft is also capable of air-refueling. Landing gear - The F-19 is a carrier capable aircraft. Noticeable is the tail-hook and the carrier-capable landing gears which are designed following the NAVY carrier based F-18 aircraft landing gears. Using the F-18 landing gears design in the F-19 was part of the original late 80's concept (as well as the F-18 engines). Leading edge slats - Shown extracted in one of the screenshots. The original F-19 concept did not incorporate leading edge slats. These were implemented into the VSKYLABS F-19 airframe as part of deeper exploration of high angle-of-attack performance and aircraft maneuverability once the thrust to weight ratio exceeded more than 1:1 with the use of after burners. A fascinating insight was with regards to the small-span elevator flap - where the elevator flap, which is positioned close and straight in line with the exhaust nozzles, acted as a thrust vectoring vane at high power settings. This configuration allows flying the F-19 at high angle of attack during certain maneuvers, and the leading edge slats were implemented to explore these flight envelope regimes. They are not required for takeoff or landing. Cockpit screenshots - By concept, the VSKYLABS F-19 cockpit design and general systems are based on the F-18 aircraft, which shares a lot in common with the original F-19 80's concept. The VSKYLABS F-19 is a fully featured aircraft simulation, includes all aircraft systems such as pressurization, fuel, oxygen, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulics, engine management, avionics and so forth. Some of the systems are similar/identical to the ones to be found in the F-18 (electrical, pressurization, oxygen, hydraulics...), and some are unique, designed specifically for the F-19 (fuel system, controls, avionics, and other). The result is a highly plausible aircraft design that is being operated as a conventional modern jet-fighter. Due to the unique flight model aspects and other simulation related aspects, the VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot': F-19 Stealth Fighter project is being developed for X-Plane 12, and will be released exclusively for X-Plane 12. The project is in advanced development stages and is aimed to be released as soon as possible after upcoming X-Plane 12 will be released. Source

This makes it so exporters can conform to the glTF specification without breaking texture lookups and vice-versa Added new column ““Total Vertex Count”” which shows the sum of Static Vertex count and Skinned Vertex count in the Stat profiler. The Vertex/Max Vertex ratio column now uses this total vertex to compute the ratio Added a new Hiding option in the Hiding menu, to hide objects with no active occurrence in Stat profiler Fixed crash when opening a project that contains non-built packages while their installed counterpart is currently used in game Removed Xbox LOD selection mode as it currently behaves identical to the PC version VISUAL EFFECTS EDITOR Added the Rename action to the File menu Automatically selecting new nodes after duplicating or copy-pasting nodes in the graph BETA mode removed for the Visual Effects Editor!

  • Canadian Xpress Caribbean Cruise Tour

    White sand beaches and private islands await in this tropical vacation paradise. From the coast of Florida to the Panama Canal, the Caribbean and Gulf coast is full of wonders to discover. Many of the islands are in fact overseas territories governed by European countries or the United States, while others are their own sovereign countries. Air travel is a must in the islands for residents since it's one of only two ways to get people and supplies in and out. Most islands have at least one airport, while only a few have access to a large deep-water seaport. Tourism is by far the largest industry in the region, with vacationers arriving by boat and by plane at all times of the year, and from all corners of the globe. Some stay only a few hours before moving on to the next island in the chain, while others stay for days or even weeks. Tropical storms and typhoons are also frequent visitors, and such events can cause devastating effects on the islands and their inhabitants. The Canadian Xpress Caribbean Cruise Tour consists of 88 legs which must be flown in order. Starting in West Palm Beach, Florida, the jumping-on point for many of the cruise ships that ply the waters in the area, and what follows is an 8,500 nm tour of 88 stops spanning 30 countries following the island chain south and east, before turning and following the coastline up the western side of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, to the Florida Keys before finally returning to Palm Beach International Airport. Join Canadian Xpress today by visiting and start flying the Caribbean Cruise Tour! *Canadian Xpress accepts 50% of your VATSIM, IVAO or other virtual airline hours with no limits.
