    -Everything you know about upcoming Flight Sim from Microsoft-

    So far pricing has not been discussed by Microsoft. A subscription has only been alluded at, as its going to cost Microsoft a small fortune to "rent" out Bing maps data and also the servers its going to need to dish it out to so many users. With the fact that these maps are optional (offline...

    A review of the FS2020 launch preview from the view of a 3rd party dev.

    I did an initial video a few months ago when MS announced FS2020, and a lot of my speculation has so far been confirmed, like the use of streaming maps and such. Lets see what else I get right with the latest massive information dump during the press conference.

    -Everything you know about upcoming Flight Sim from Microsoft-

    Im just doing a little happy dance since almost all the stuff I said in my video is coming true. Except the RTX reflections. Seems that its just screen space! Im glad I was wrong on that one. RTX ray tracing takes a LOT of frames away.

    -Everything you know about upcoming Flight Sim from Microsoft-

    I also posted my insights from a developers point of view. P.S. I called the aircraft out as an A380 NEO. I meant to say A320 NEO! DOH! Good stuff though. Cant wait to crack into the SDK.

    An in-depth look at the new E3 MSFS trailer from me.

    I did an in-depth analysis of the new E3 trailer and spoke about some of the technology behind it in detail in a video I just released. I think some of you more tech orientated may find it interesting! Let me know what you think and lets discuss anything I spoke about or missed! Kevin

    -Everything you know about upcoming Flight Sim from Microsoft-

    So far I can pretty much confirm that they are not. Most of us didnt even know about the project. I dont know if this was done specifically to exclude the old ACES team or if its just because the current dev team is located in France.

    P3D v4 Refreshing textures/models in P3D?

    Is it possible to have P3D reload the textures or models of an aircraft without having to quit out? Im making liveries and doing final shader tweaks on my Zenith 701 and I need to exit P3D and reload to see any updates after I save out the DDS files. Does a dev mode exist that flushes the...

    Looking for a co-developer to finalize Zenith 701 project. (P3D/FSX)

    Mainly its the animation tagging and proper keys needed. Like the artificial horizon. I may be able to crack open some old files that people worked on for me and reverse engineer how its done. I know how to animate things in Max just fine, but you need to do the keys and animation tagging a...
