totedemac ToLiss Cockpit Textures

We’re pleased to inform you on behalf of X-Plane.Org user totedemac that we’re hosting his ToLiss A319 cockpit pack version 4.1.

According to totedemac “This cockpit package version 4.x comes with a plugin that will fix the shadow angles for this aircraft, but it’s only for Window users. Sorry for that. If you are on Linux or Mac then just don’t install the plugin. I wanted to do more work on it but I found out im gonna be a daddy, so next features will come in a further update.”

“The installation for all OS platforms except then the plugin, is as follows. Logically, please Backup first your OBJECTS Files inside /Objects Folder then just drag the new objects inside your Objects Folder of the 319 Toliss Aircraft and replace. For Windows users the plugin installation that fixes the shadows angle for Toliss; drag the “Totedemac” folder inside your Toliss/plugins folder.”

Are you in for a change?
Are you in to give it a try and see what these textures can do for you?

SAM Updated Version 2.0.1

No no, don’t worry. It’s not Uncle Sam that has been updated, but Marten his Scenery Animation Manager that has been updated to version 2.0.1. Note that the current version 2.0.1 is only for Windows and Linux systems. Marten is working on an updated version for macOS. Keep on monitoring our new post for the update for macOS.

In addition to the latest Scenery Animation Manager we created a free seasonal texture library which can be controlled through the SAM plugin menu. There also is a free SDK available in case you would like to adapt your scenery to these. The download link for this SAM extension is included at the end of this news post.

We’re more than pleased to inform you that with the approval of Marten or also known as X-Plane.Org user marten@stairport, we are able to host and promote his X-Plane 11 plugin. Oh no, not just a plugin, no, a great plugin.

According to Marten; SAM (Scenery Animation Manager) is a native X-Plane 11 plugin offering different possibilities to scenery authors focused on animations. A library with pre-animated objects like Jetways, VDGS, Marshaller, Hangars, Wind Turbines etc. is the starting point for developers to experiment with. You can either use these objects or create and animate your own.

Updated version 2.0.0 (November 19th 2019) comes with the following fixes and/or additions or improvements:

  • New User Interface with plenty of new features
  • Colors and Seasons menu (+ additional free seasons library)
  • Automatic connection mode now connects to closest door as long as no door is predefined
  • Manual connection mode offers full control of any jetway
  • Jetway status indication (can be disabled)
  • Flightplan import from Vatsim, IVAO, PilotEdge and SimBrief
  • New VDGS model Honeywell-AVDGS-PA3 including flight details
  • Online Version check for Plugin/Library + Extensions
  • Fixed VDGS pole drawing distance
  • Fixed jetway solid type 1 extension and templates
  • Fixed missing LIT texture on Honeywell AVDGS

What’s New in Version 2.0.1 which was updated December 4th 2019:

  • Changed library file structure
  • Added system to keep libraries in the highest scenery priority
  • Adapted manual for new installation instructions
  • Increased plugin loading time for pre-cached airports
  • Added VMAX 787 config
  • Fixed Zibo v3.38+ door height
  • Fixed wrong pole object texture
  • Fixed wrong color button logic
  • Added authentification system for extensions
  • Added WorldJetway extension (payware)
  • Added linux version

The plugin is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 which means it is free to use for all users and for all freeware sceneries. If you are a payware developer you can get a license for your project in our shop. Check it out at our dedicated Scenery Animation Manager download page and the SAM Extension | Seasons Library download page.

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1913

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on December 5th, 2019. Let’s give some background information about the AIRAC Cycle.

The AIRAC cycle was adopted in 1964 and further improved over the years. Key are the worldwide effective dates with 28 days intervals (e.g. 4 August 2005, 1 September 2005, 29 September 2005, …). Effective days are always on a Thursday. It may look indeed like a long period, 28 days, or even 56, but it should be understood that aeronautical information changes, mostly published through so called AIRAC Amendments.

Back to our Navigraph Cycle 1913, effective from December 5th. By following this link you reach the download section of Navigraph.

Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 1913

Aerosoft released on December 5th a new AIRAC Cycle 1913 for their NavDataPro.

For operationally significant changes in information, the cycle known as the AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) cycle is used: revisions are produced every 56 days (double AIRAC cycle) or every 28 days (single AIRAC cycle).

NavDataPro users are now able to download and install the datasets for X-Plane. NavDataPro is our new update service for navigational data used by various simulatorsWith this service flight sim pilots will always get up-to-date navdata for flight planning and in flight use.

More information can be found at the dedicated Aerosoft web page.

OpenSceneryX 4.3.0 Out

We would like to share with you the following OpenSceneryX news.

According to OpenSceneryX “There is a new version of OpenSceneryX out, v4.3.0. Here are the release notes. First, new scenery objects in this version:
Incorporated latest additions from DT Library by Darrell Thompson into OpenSceneryX, including more asphalt ground polygons and a dry grass ground polygon.
Incorporated latest updates from FlyAgi’s Vegetation Library by FlyAgi, including specific seasonal textures when used with the new seasonal support in Scenery Animation Manager.

Modified scenery objects in this version:
The spring and winter (no snow) forests were showing with a white ‘halo’ around them, which has now been fixed.
Discovered that the build process wasn’t always copying both DDS and PNG textures if they were both available. As a result, many more objects now have DDS textures.
Corrected a number of the polygons which contained invalid commands.

Other changes:
Added support for season switching using the Scenery Animation Manager plugin (SAM).
When delivering winter seasonal variants, we now prioritise specific snow / non-snow variants over default winter variants. This ensures, for example, that you will always see a snowy variant if you are using a plugin that requests snowy assets (provided there is a snowy version available for that item, of course!).
Improved the documentation for the asphalt surface polygon variants which are designed to be used over the top of opaque asphalt to give a more weathered look.
3D previews of objects, lines, polygons and forests are now displayed on the website, e.g.: Here’s a forest and here’s an aircraft

Also, to accompany the new library version, there is a new installer too, which has the following changes:

  • Added support for season switching using the Scenery Animation Manager plugin (SAM).
  • New application icon.
  • Improve button and drop-down menu layouts on Linux.
  • The Spanish and Catalan translations have been updated, thank you to Haris Amiel.
  • No longer use an internal web browser to show the license – open the default web browser (e.g. Edge, Safari, Chrome) instead.
  • Memory leak fixed on Windows. May have been causing the installer to hang towards the end of large installs.
  • Grab the new installer from www.opensceneryx.com.
