Prepar3D v2.4 Update Now Available

29 Sep 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

Lockheed Martin released today a new update of Prepar3D, it includes numerous fixes and can be installed either as a 103MB patch to an existing v2.3 install, or as a new install (10.6GB) .

 

Prepar3D previous update (v2.3) was released recently, in August . That shows that Lockheed Martin is indeed committed to continually improving Prepar3D.

 

You can download it ...  ... HERE

 

(*) a quick test: I installed the patch and it seamlessly updated P3D and I ran it afterwards without any problems and with all add ons still installed.

a control panel for the SU-25T

29 Sep 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

One member of our community finished a prototype control panel for the DCS Su-25T - a great way to enhance immersion and make sim flying a completely different experience.

 

 

 

 

I have finally completed, and successfully tested, my prototype control panel for the SU-25T. This thing is an absolute blast to fly with! No more guessing as to what keys do what ... or if your ECM or IR Jamming is on or not.

 

The reason I built this is two fold, 1) I am a commercial pilot (FEDEX Feeder C-208s) and would much rather prefer an actual switch (that's labeled no less) over combinations of key strokes on the keyboard. 2) I'm an idiot and can never remember what I bound the generic switches on my HOTAS to or what all the keyboard combinations are. It really pulls away from the feeling (and is rather time consuming) when I have to look up on the cheat sheet to see what key strokes do an action

I really enjoyed building and testing this control panel, and will be taking orders from anyone who may be interested in one. 

 

All that is needed is 2 free USB ports, SVMapper (or something similar) and a desk that has a lip to it so the two clamps can hold the panel down firmly. The "brains" of this control panel are 2 Leo Bodnar BUO836A's. This control panel houses all the keys that the SU-25T uses (except for communications and views) 

 

As you can see in the pictures, the flat portion fits the throttle to the X-55. It also fits the Thrustmaster throttle.

it is a very interesting area with lots of possibilities for further expansion - and very suitable for Carrier Ops. A welcome relief for those suffering from Crimea fatigue.

Il-2 BOS

25 Aug 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

Developer Blog #76

 

This time we give you He 111 H-6 for the early access. This magnificent aircraft completes the IL2BOS hangar making it all 10 planes that we planned to create - and we did it.

Also we update the game version implementing massive changes in the multiplayer, improving its technical features. We count on performance improvement however we don't know yet how big this improvement will be.

 

And for the first time since the beginning of early access we add community-made content - it's the Novosokolniki map for multiplayer.

 

Read more on the forum.

Best Wishes,
The IL2: BOS Team

OpusFSI released

10 Sep 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

OpusFSI is the follow on product to OpusFSX and includes the following additional features,

    - Enhanced Live Weather Engine.
    - Live Weather Assistant (LWA) enhanced with various zoomable geographic map options together with superimposed flight plan route, wind speed arrows, turbulence data, aerodrome locations, customisable aircraft symbols and much more.
    - LWA weather maps and reports can now be generated before a flight has been loaded.
    - New Cloud Associations option creates pseudo cloud layers that are not often reported in the METARs but are typically associated with certain cloud types and conditions to provide an even more realistic weather interpretation.
    - Coordinated wind and temperature target schemes have been introduced to greatly reduce the number of forced weather updates during the climb and descent.
    - Selective Update mode introduced to minimise FSX cloud and wind shifts.
    - Faster GRIB decoding and processing.
    - Improved Live Camera editing and management

Developer Blog #72

18 Jul 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

The traditional Friday update is waiting to be deployed for you later today. And while Loft and Jason are on their challenging business trip visiting the America’s most popular gaming media, we here at the studio are preparing all kinds of improvements for BOS.

Ammocounters that many of you have been waiting for are going to become available on both Bf 109s and on Ju-87. A nice improvement has been made to the DM - it is now possible to cause damage to enemy’s machine guns and cannons and practically disable them. There are also going to be visual changes - you’ll notice that we’ve implemented vapour trails and wingtip trails that often appear when a plane reaches critical angles.

FW 190 A-3 that some of you are eager to see in the game is planned to be released next week. And as we’re doing our best to make it happen, check out a short flight video featuring the fighter.

To all owners of the Standard edition who hasn't purchased any additional planes yet - La-5, the first Premium fighter is already available. You can buy it separately and enjoy flying it both in Quick Missions and in Multiplayer mode of the early access version.
