Aerosoft today released some previews of their highly anticipated A330X!
The previews this week feature the work done on the aircraft’s reverse thruster modelling. Stefan Hoffmann, Aerosoft’s developer on the A330X posted on the Aerosoft forum: “And here we go with the updates for this week Dudley! You did saw some post from Mathijs already of the “paperwork” which was to do for the throttle levers. Beside the wings are finished now (sigh) and the focus moved over to the thrust reverser section on the engines.”
It’s progressed rather far already, only the details on the outer sides of the doors have to be added next week. There is some more complex panelling located. After that work will focus on the main gear bays. Two pictures come from FSX, the rest (for my convenience) directly from within the 3dsoftware.”
Mathijs Kok, Aerosoft’s community manager posted a preview of items that Aerosoft is adding into the cockpit to fully immerse you, these include food, drinks, newspapers and now the tech log stuck between the throttles before engine start. In a post to the forums yesterday he wrote: “This the last of what we will show about the immersion stuff. Techlog, OFP and such stuck between the thrust levers when on ground (before engine start) you will see that in every airbus cockpit world wide.”
I can also already tell that there’s going to be people complaining about the addition of these immersion items, we’ve already been reassured by Aerosoft that they won’t have any effect on performance and are simply there to add a little more realism to the experience.
