Utility Review | Agi FTU Advanced Clouds

Since our in-depth FlyAGI Tweak Utility (FTU) review, published at X-Plained.Com, the FlyAGI utility has changed a lot. Agi added many new features, and one of these new features or expanded features is the modification or manipulation of clouds. Apart of the environment is clouds, but there’s so much more like controlling the sky colors, haze, rshade and so on. Since I was seeking for the right or good looking clouds, I felt that there was a need to write this article.

The reason for this additional article of FlyAGI Tweak Utility is that since my review a lot of things have been changed, in particular settings to clouds. The current add-on package version 1.10q offers a lot of cloud related changes and that’s then directly the reason for this article.

This additional review deals with the Advanced cloud settings that are possible with FTU version 1.10q. Curious? If you’re curious and I bit you are, I invite you to sit back, relax and read this combined in-depth Advanced Clouds review of Agi and Angelique van Campen.

Utility Review | FlyAGI lua Tweak Utility

Once an a while there’s something that triggers Angelique’s attention. This time she was seeking for a lua utility that could do a bit more then she normally sees. Together with the recent update of X-Plane to version 11.30r3, she ran into trouble with her clouds, but she found, not only for clouds, a interesting freeware utility; FlyAGI Tweak Utility.

We should do this more. We from X-Plained.Com should do more freeware reviews since it’s fun seeing what developers can make. FlyAGI does have an own website in German and English. It’s more a forum, but with some interesting downloads too. One of them deals with this utility review. According to Angelique “I think I covered most of the FlyAGI Tweak Utility. It was not my intention to write a thorough review, although it has become a much longer story then planned.”

She continues “Anyway, I like this tiny freeware lua package and although we at X-Plained can’t host is, it’s worth to download it from the FlyAGI website and give it a try. Feedback of your experience is always welcome and perhaps you come up with good ideas to be added to the product and perhaps the developer is willing to implement that.”

Utility Review | XP Realistic Pro

Although Angelique van Campen had a lot of fun reviewing XPRealistic Pro, it wasn’t easy to write a review about this utility. But she finally found the flow. She’s pleased to offer you an in-depth review of XPRealistic Pro version 1.0.92, tested on macOS Mojave withX-Plane 10.26r2 with different FlyWithLua plugins.

According to Angelique “An aircraft, whatever kind of, an airport or a scenery or sometimes utility programs that can be touched in one way or the other are easy to write about. In that respect, XPRealistic Pro is difficult to see, to touch or to experience. I could make a movie, but there are already so many out there, even the developer has made a couple, so why should I add another one. I prefer to look to the facts, to settings that can be made and so on.”

Great add-on that works more or less out of the box. Curious what Angelique has to say? Check it out … here’s the comprehensive review link. Enjoy!

Utility Review | WebFMC

A remote FMS CDU/MCDU is always worth to investigate. Such an add-on software could be very helpful. With that in mind, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen decided to take a closer look into the Green Arc Studios WebFMC Pro.

It’s actually an X-Plane plugin which is very handy since it can present the aircraft CDU/MCDU on any remote hardware device. The plugin works with Windows, Mac and Linux and most external Android or iOS equipment. How that all works, how easy it is to use it and how stable it is. Check out our Green Arc Studios WebFMC Pro review.

According to Angelique “This was fun. And yes, the multiplatform usability makes Green Arc Studios WebFMC a strong product. As mentioned before, it can be used with X-Plane for Windows, Mac and Linux and besides that, you can also use remote devices running Android or iOS. And not unimportant, the constant growing list of supported aircraft. Oh yes, I could write that this and that add-on payware aircraft is missing, but those are also on the developers wish-list to add to his list when time permits.”

Utility Review | Haversine AirEFB App

Released for you just before Black Friday 2018 … written for you by your personal reporter Angelique van Campen, an in-depth review of the Haversine AirEFB iPad app. It took some time to organise all the possibilities, and then the time to put it all together, but Angelique finally managed in that.

According to here “I hope that this review adds a bit more background to the Haversine AirEFB add-on. It’s a very nice tool, and Haversine offers you to a maximum 100MB cloud space to upload your charts and/or documents.”

And she continues “the Haversine Air plugin to my Mac X-Plane 11, remember that the latest Haversine Air plugin works with all its 3 platforms, MacWindows and Linux in 32 and 64 bit formats.”

Haversine AirFMC Utility Review

This time a utility review of a well-known Mac platform developer … Haversine AirFMC. Thanks to Joao, developer at Haversine, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen got the right grip on this remote CDU/MCDU iOS and maCOS tool.

According to Angelique “Utility add-on programs are always fun to review. The same with the Haversine AirFMC although it’s only available for iOS hardware or for macOS. That some aircraft need to be added to the list makes sense, but the overall idea having on a remote device your CDU/MCDU is great.”

you’re a Mac simmer, you also own an iPad? When you do that, then I encourage to sit back and read this comprehensive review of the AirFMC iOS app.
