FSX Fiber Accelerator

06 Jul 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss in Flight Sim News (207 Views · 3 Comments)

light Simulator Platform Solutions presents FSX Fiber Accelerator, a product that will take FSX again to the peak, where it belongs !
FSX tweaking over the years was made -mostly- by making changes on fsx.cfg . That is the FSX settings file.
All changes – despite how good they were – are static, as when you load FSX these changes stay until you quit FSX and insert another tweak again.
This leads to problems: Either you had found a perfect setup for around a heavy airport but you would lose graphics quality on other places, or you had found the perfect setup for high lever flying but when close to the ground things went bad, or you had a "just average" all-around set up.
How about forcing FSX to be more clever and provide it with a way that keeps frames high at the best possible graphics quality, or lower frames to keep up with the graphics demand , according to your needs?
Dear Simmers, FSX Fiber Acclerator is here ! For the first time in FSX, we directly, in real-time, dynamically inserting FSX tweaks without touching fsx.cfg. Using revultionary techniques we draw power from where you DON'T need (in example while you are on the ground, from drawn graphics 80 miles away) and bring you this power to where you DO need (in example to better frame rate and better graphics quality around the airport).
By – in other words – rewritting the FSX graphics engine, FSX now gives to Simmer what he need , when he needs it !
Better frame rates, better graphics quality, faster texture loading, smoothness in motion all together in the same flight! Maximizing the CPU and GPU power for FSX was never easier.
Doing what? Like updating FSX with a new fsx.cfg every millisecond !
How it works:
You start FSX and set a "Target Frames" in settings. (This will be the top number your FSX will get on the less demanding situations)
You start FSX Fiber Accelerator, and you set a "Lower Frames per second" target. This will be the number of frames FSX will try to catch up, according to your needs, lowering graphics quality (always gradually from places you cannot see anyway, moving closer to your position).
You then go to the hardest (i.e. the most frame-killer you got) airport you own. You test some settings until you find the best one. That's it.
All is later done afterwards by FSX Fiber Accelerator and it will work perfectly on all other airport as you configured it for the worst possible scecario.
Next time you just start FSX and FSX Fiber Accelerator... Nothing more to do, made to be as simply as possible, it is start-and-forget.
Main Features:

  • Best possible fps at any given situation with maximum possible graphics quality.
  • Best possible graphics in FSX quality according to the frame rate you set for the hard cases.
  • Best possible smoothness on texture loading during even the hardest viewpoing change.
  • Maximum CPU and GPU allocation to FSX during the whole flight.
  • Dynamically applying (every millisecond) the best possible tweaks to your FSX.
What it cannot do? Well it is not buying you new hardware. It just makes absolutely sure that the one you have will present FSX to the zenith , as best as it can do. To hard to believe it?
We agree. Download the demo from HERE to get the free try-before-you-buy chance to believe... (5 single uses of the application , for 5 minutes each) Do your tests where you know you PC barely makes it, and be amazed by the results.
Then we are sure, we will welcome you to FSPS family as the only possible next step would be you become a proud owner of FSPS – FSX Fiber Accelerator .

DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora is now available for pre purchase from the DCS Store

27 Jun 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss in Flight Sim News (117 Views · 0 Comments)
The Fighter Collection and the developer are happy to announce that DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora is now available for pre purchase from the DCS Store at: https://www.digitalc...or.com/en/shop/
On August 5, 2014, DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora will be available from the DCS e-store for $49.99. Pre Purchase it now for $39.99, a 20% savings!
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 is widely regarded as Germany's best fighter aircraft of World War II. Its appearance in the skies over France in August 1941 was a rude shock to the Allies, as it was clearly superior to any other plane. For nearly a year, the Fw 190 was the unmatched champion of the air war in Europe. The Fw 190 had speed and high altitude performance as its two great assets.

The development of advanced allied fighters resulted in the Fw 190 D–9 variant which first saw service in September 1944. This variant had a larger nose that housed a more powerful Junkers Jumo engine that produced 2,100 hp with the MW-50 boost system. The D-9 was designed for high altitude aerial combat and is a worthy adversary to the P-51D Mustang.

Teaser:

Key Features of the DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora:

• Unmatched flight physics that allow you to truly feel what it's like to fly this legend.
• Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit.
• Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse.
• Accurate Fw 190 D-9 model, squadron markings, and weapons.
• Detailed modelling the Fw 190 D-9 instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, and electrical systems.
• Battle the P-51D Mustang in single and multiplayer games.
On August 5, 2014, DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora will be available from the DCS e-store for $49.99. Pre Purchase it now for $39.99, a 20% savings!

OpusFX Release Version 3.47.0 Available

12 May 2014
Posted by Tom_Weiss in Flight Sim News (171 Views · 0 Comments)

Release Version 3.47.0 Available
This release includes improved camera transition options allowing greater flexibility and better aircraft walk and fly arounds to be created. The transition speeds can now be slowed down to near walking pace with a slight acceleration and deceleration at the start and end of the camera movement.
This release also includes a reorganised Camera Control dialog which adopts a more intuitive left to right and top down order for the camera configuration options. Camera editing no longer recognises aircraft and rotorcraft that do not have panel folders. The injected wing flex data has been increased up to the maximum allowed level within the simulator. High level cloud cover defined in the RMK section of the METAR is also decoded by the LWE.
The visibility has been adjusted to generate more realistic poor visibility at lower levels especially when there is a reduced surface visibility resulting from fog, mist, or haze. We have also added a non-linear element to camera view transitions and modified the way zoom level changes are handled. The weather map data has been reordered and relabelled ready for future upgrades.
Spoiler (speed brake) deployment, landing and initial roll out vibration effects have been added to the ButtKicker audio control. The NOAA (Feb 2014) Met Station list has been updated.
The new improved and coordinated Dynamic Wind Targeting and Control measures are capable of completely eliminating wind shifts whilst still allowing accurate, dynamic, and varied real-world weather to be used within the simulator. These new measures allow both wind and temperature targets to be maintained accurately during all phases of the flight.
The improved Dynamic Wind Control is now constantly active whilst you are above 100 feet AGL and always attempts to smoothly adjust the ambient wind speed and direction toward the required target values.

New 'Actual' indication added to the Destination Weather Report to indicate when the weather inside the simulator matches the reported weather at the destination.

A Reverse Axis option has been added to the LCC Shortcuts Left/Right, Up/Down, Forward/Backward, Pitch Up/Down, Bank Left/Right, and Yaw Left/Right controller axes.
GPS Output feature for 3rd party Navigation and Flight Planning packages such as the excellent real-world SkyDemon PC software.

Twin Otter Extended final released

21 Nov 2013
Posted by Tom_Weiss in Flight Sim News (311 Views · 0 Comments)

The Twin Otter Extended project is completed. We have just uploaded the files to the sales server and the boxed production department is hard at work to get the boxes done. We expect them to be available in about 2 weeks. This complete version has 11 (!) models.

  • DHC6-100 Floater Cargo
  • DHC6-100 Floater Passenger
  • DHC6-100 Wheel
  • DHC6-300 Amphibian
  • DHC6-300 Float
  • DHC6-300 Ski/Wheel
  • DHC6-300 Tundra Wheel Cargo
  • DHC6-300 Tundra Wheel Passenger
  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Cargo (3 blade prop)
  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Cargo (4 blade prop)
  • DHC6-300 Standard Wheel Passenger (3 blade prop)
The download version does not include the extended paint kit (because it is very large), but it is available as a separate download on your order history page. The boxed version does include the paint kit in the standard installation. Please share your liveries here: http://forum.aerosof...ended-repaints/

We decided to release this as a complete build, not an update, because we have seen some problems with the updates. This way all users will be on the same platform and version (1.10). If you have any liveries installed just use the livery manager to back them up. It should be easy to see what are non standard liveries as the thumbnail will be different. Installing them afterwards will be very easy and fast.
Posted Image

The price has no been set to the standard (29.46 Euro plus EU VAT tax when applicable), the discount we had until the full version was available is now no longer available.

You will find the new build on your order history page and we are trying to alert our sister sites to the new version as fast as possible. From this moment on only maintenance will be done on this project, no other changes or updates are planned.
