Hardware is the key, if you want to reach the higher levels of simulation. But it’s not the device itself, that makes things look and feel different. It’s also the rigg for it. Where would you find the joy in simming with the best HOTAS system, the most realistic yoke, the best rudder pedals without proper fixation? Look at the picture above. This is not really a simmers dream, is it?
Well, some of our simming friends in Poland thought similar and here you are: Wheel Stand Pro offers a variety of solutions both for racing and flight simulation enthusiasts.
German simFlight.de reviewer Stefan Benzinger took a ride – see here, what he knows to tell:
As they are one of the most prolific cross-platform developers in the FS industry, it is unsurprising that Carenado yesterday added their B200 business turboprop to the list of their packages available for X-Plane 10.
As the list of features Carenado provide on their site is so long, if you’re an X-Plane pilot interested in what is on offer, you might want to check out the full list, here. Some of the highlights include custom, plugin controlled, gauges, rain and ice effects, custom sounds and even polarising windows for the cabin.
Alaska has been a draw for simulated pilots for about as long as it has been available to visit. With many communities only reachable by air, sea, or long mountain and forest hikes, the area is reliant on bush aircraft to live at all and commercial air travel for communication with the ‘lower 49′ and onwards to much of the rest of the world.
Now available for X-Plane 10 is “Final Frontier 10“, from Scenery4XP, covering the Alaskan Panhandle from the Misty Fjords up to Juneau, with a total of 120 airports and seaplane bases within its borders. Look here for more information and screenshots.
