Aerosoft has released previews of their Airbus Professional series aircraft featuring a few new features!
In a post to the Aerosoft forums, Community Manager, Mathijs Kok wrote: “Quick update of this week. Good progress on bug killing, we now really see the number of things go down and the only ‘new’ development going on (where new code is made) is in the Immersion module.”
One of the standout features of this weeks update is the cockpit camera: “For that, I did some sound recordings for the flight attendant that rings the flight deck doorbell (you hear the door chime). Then you check the door camera to see who it is and unlock the door. Moments later you hear the flight attendant saying hi and you’ll have your coffee (and no, you will not see the person, just the coffee. We need more graphical power to start animating persons on the flight deck).”
Mr Kok continued: “Further testing is going on with the TrueGlass and RealLight modules. They are still very GPU memory demanding but we are able to shave off a few MB here and there. After release, we need to see if we are forced to make models without these enhancements. The VC itself is very very lean, less memory used than most of the high-end aircraft. Remains an item we are closely monitoring.”
“Soon we should have the new sounds from Turbine. These are completely new recordings, not reworked sets of the old files and Christoffer believes they are pretty darned good. This was one of the important dates on the timeline as I really wanted new updated and more accurate sounds. The latest cockpits of the A320 line are much quieter than older and we wanted to make sure we have that right.”
