  2. We are excited to introduce you to our newest Indie - Mark "Milo" Taylor with his Orbx debut release of KMYL McCall Municipal Airport! KMYL may seem familiar to some of you as it was previously released under Milo's banner of MSX Creations. Under the expert mentorship of veteran Tim Harris, Milo has completely overhauled his original release in this stunning all-new version with new custom library objects, scenery placement and re-texturing. KMYL McCall Municipal is well known to many as "The Gateway to the Backcountry." This area of Idaho is considered one of the most challenging areas in the world for backcountry pilots and has a high concentration of small airstrips, which will challenge even the most seasoned pilots. KMYL is the home of the United States Fire Service Smokejumper Base which sees an array of different firefighting aircraft. Many are parked around the airport. The airport caters for around 43,000 flights per year, ranging from small general aviation aircraft and due to the rising real estate market, many wealthy people have been attracted to the area, which brings many small to medium business jets. In creating this scenery we have tried to make it as homely as possible to achieve a high level of immersion. So get out there and start flying backcountry, today! At a glance Realistic ground and apron texturing, which includes the recent apron re-surfacing Realistic Night Lighting PBR texturing throughout Extensive level of detail work for superb performance Multiple custom static aircraft which includes Coulson 737 Fireliner, Neptune Bae 146, Erikson and HTS Skycranes, plus many native GA registrations Airport specific windsocks 160+ custom objects Many custom animations, which included wind-affected flags. Hand placed vegetation Developed by Mark "Milo" Taylor We are currently working with Milo to ensure customers that have purchased Version 1 of KMYL at another reseller will be able to have this new version added to their Orbx account free of charge. This will involve license key redemption here on the Orbx site.

  5. The Volanta team has been hard at work cooking up some brand new features, primarily based on community feedback. Today, we’re pleased to give you a first preview of what we’ve been working on. Stay connected on the move: Volanta Mobile for iOS and Android Our most requested feature. After many months of development, we’re proud to unveil our new Volanta Mobile app, coming soon for Volanta Premium users. Monitor your flight from takeoff to landing, even when you’re away from your PC. Active flight statistics like altitude, ground speed, remaining time are all easily accessible. Noticed you’re off course? With Remote Pause on XP, P3D and FSX, you can instantly freeze your flight - ready for you to resume control when you’re back at your PC. Featuring the same buttery smooth feature-rich map you’ve come to enjoy on your desktop, the Volanta Mobile app acts as a natural extension of Volanta on the go. View traffic from Volanta and your favourite online networks like VATSIM and IVAO from anywhere. See which airports are popular, ready for your flight. Use Volanta Mobile on your tablet (or phone) acting as another monitor. Use it to see where you are at the airport, see taxiway labels, and gate information. A true companion for your flights. This first version of Volanta Mobile lays the groundwork for more features. Let us know what you want to see in the app. When Volanta 1.4 launches, you’ll find the mobile app on both Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Not Premium? You can still access our mobile website anytime at fly.volanta.app. FlightAware powering fresh monthly-updated schedules We are pleased to announce our Real-World Schedules feature is now powered by an industry leader: FlightAware. This brings higher quality data, at more airports around the world. The improved data source powering this allows us to ensure the accuracy of schedule data, which is important as real-world airlines adapt their schedules to changing conditions. A further benefit of the FlightAware data source, is that we now have more reliable data on the type of aircraft used on that flight. Seeing “Unk AC” will be much less common now! Look for the updated flight information under “Schedules” when Volanta 1.4 launches. Upgrade your stream with Stream Overlay Create a more unique stream with a dynamically updating overlay powered by Volanta. Easy to use and easy to customise. Perfect for anyone getting started with streaming on Twitch, YouTube or any other live streaming platform. Stream Overlay shows information straight from your simulator, such as origin, destination, callsign, ETA, ground speed, vertical speed, heading and altitude. When combined with Volanta’s Intelligent Tracking and easy SimBrief imports, the Stream Overlay takes no extra effort to give your viewers extra information to improve their viewing experience. Volanta Premium users are able to further customise the Steam Overlay to match their online brand. We plan to add more layouts to our overlay post-launch. Once Volanta 1.4 launches, send us a link to your stream with the Stream Overlay and we might feature you on our social channels! More features for every flight In addition to the major new features we’re adding, we also have a few other features up our sleeves for 1.4. The built-in roster system introduced in Volanta 1.2 has been expanded to also allow scheduling flights outside of the Real-World Schedule system. This means you can plan your upcoming day’s flights all within Volanta, just by entering the origin and destination. You could also use this to plan out a world tour and complete each flight within Volanta! Improvements to our Discord integration show the simulator you’re flying, as well as more information about your flight, and an easy button to view your flight on the Volanta website. Other changes coming in v1.4 include comprehensive documentation, as well as other usability improvements like being able to disable the “plugin install” prompts. This isn’t all though. We’re working on a few other features that we hope to include before launch. Stay tuned for a launch very soon! The Volanta Team @volantaapp

  7. Happy New Year - late, we know. But the Summer holidays in Australia are still a thing, even if the weather has been mostly inclement so far, but there is still time! While everyone has had some small amounts of downtime, pondering life and the universe, the Orbx team has been reflecting on 2021, what we set to do and what we actually achieved. As you all know, lately we have been mega busy working with Microsoft on the release of the Australia World Update on Microsoft Flight Simulator and the Fokker. They have been labours of love over many many months, and we are really proud of the results (stay tuned re Fokker as we will be releasing an update with fixes and new functionality). We think the Australian update is the best (and certainly most extensive) so far - if we can say so ourselves! As a bit of a summary... during 2021 we released 18 Airports (with our HQ in YMEN across 3 platforms), 10 Cities, 22 Indy airports, 3 regions, 1 traffic simulator, 3 missions (the Santa Run, the Halloween Run and the Brisbane River Run) and our first aircraft, the Edgley Optica. Of these releases, 47 were Microsoft Flight Sim products, 8 Prepar3D and 5 X-Plane. The airport list, in case you need to complete the 2021 collection: LWSK - Skopje International Airport EG41 - Fishburn Airfield EGSG - Stapleford Airfield YBBN - Brisbane International Airport V2 LFKX - Meribel Airport KEYW - Key West International Airport EGTR - Elstree Aerodrome EGKA - Shoreham (Brighton) Airport CYBD - Bella Coola Airport LDSP - Split Airport S45 - Siletz Bay State Airport EGHI - Southampton Airport EGPB - Sumburgh Airport YBBN - Brisbane International Airport 1WA6 - Fall City Airport PAKT - Ketchikan International Airport LDSP - Split Airport ...and as mentioned, YMEN Essendon Airport - for P3D, MSFS and XP11 The cities have been VERY exciting products to make and see in action in MSFS: Paris, Singapore, Brisbane (also for P3D), Adelaide, Frankfurt (then incorporated in the German update), Cape Town, Dubai, Mumbai, and Auckland. Often we get asked about compatibility and inclusion when the MSFS world updates get done. Holger in particular works on the compatibility once the WUs are out. We don't get to see the final versions of photogrammetry from Microsoft (yes - not even for the AU Update) so we have to wait until those are released and then make modifications. As an aside, a number of people wonder why bother buying add-ons when MS will then incorporate similar changes in an update. My answer here is simple: it's a bit like going to the movies vs Netflix / Prime.... if you want to watch a movie when it gets out (and talk about it at your next dinner party), you pay a ticket now, and then yes maybe it will come out on Netflix or whatever subscription you have, and you can watch it for free. Up to you if you want to be there first, or wait for later. Personal choice. I paid $35 last week to watch the new Dune (awesome BTW), now I own it, and I am sure it will be included on Prime in 3-4 months, and I do not care. Again, personal choice. Ok where were we... Let's see what is in store (for the moment) in 2022. Prague for all sims, first one out will be MSFS (imminent!) Landmarks Panama Canal is about to be finished too, with lots of exciting features Updates to both our New Zealand mesh (the promised high-resolution LiDAR data) and Landmarks Auckland More of our PC-based landmarks products to be adjusted for release on Xbox OpenLC Asia - tricky as Eugene, the developer, is in the Ukraine and there have been disruptions there, plus this is such a HUGE project and we don't have firm dates yet A swag of aircraft for MSFS - we will release the names and models as we get closer to getting them out, as it seems aircraft sometimes hit snags due to sim-based functionality A very special project: YMML aka Tullamarine / Melbourne main airport, which will be led by Ed and Marcus, plus a Melbourne city pack with a number of POIs to make this city great again ;-) For MSFS, KCRW "Chuck" Yeager, KFAT Fresno, KPBI Palm Beach (also for P3D), VTSP Phuket and KBOI Boise. For P3D and maybe a bit delayed - TrueEarth Eastern Alps. We are looking at making YBBN Brisbane for XPL too, and a special GB North Landmarks pack for MSFS. Our Indies are also all busy with these new projects. From Marcus Nyberg we have ESSA Stockholm Arlanda in heavy development. Marcus revisits his ESP classic and brining it to MSFS with all new modelling textures. You can check the progress at The (very cool) Arlanda Journal. https://www.facebook.com/The-Arlanda-Journal-109400158308529 Finn Hansen takes on another Norwegian airport and he has ENGM Oslo in his sights. We hope to see this towards the middle of this year with progress going well with this major hub. Andreas Hegi takes a visit down to the gateway of the Dolomites with LIPB Bolzano Airport and he’s been bitten by the “interior terminal” bug. Another that has decided to try out the interior modelling fad is Rasha Tucakov as he looks to wrap up LYPG Podgorica as an addition to his Balkan Peninsula destinations. After the successful LKSK Skiathos, Matteo Veneziani wasted no time in revisiting KBUR Burbank as he works on a new version for MSFS with reworked models and textures and new groundpoly. This was necessary as we look to use this as the basis for the X-Plane version of the airport and will be available at a discount for existing owners. After that, Matteo will begin work on YBCG Gold Cost as well as look to finalise LIPH Treviso. Ken Hall is busy on working YMLT Launceston which will be a great addition to his home on the Apple Isle and he is in his element with some of the older buildings and bringing them to life, warts and all. And over in New Zealand, Tim Harris is feeling rejuvenated with his work on NZNV Invercargill and really pushing the limits on where art meets reality. Our MSFS mesh wizard, Dmytro Krikunov (if the name sounds familiar, it is because he is the son of Eugene our Global lead developer) is finalising the much awaited NZ Mesh update with 1m LiDAR in selected areas and his next region will be South America! That’s right, the whole continent. Phew! OK that is what we have got for the moment. I know many of you will have suggestions of what we should do next, and we are very happy to hear them (no guarantee though ;-) ). Hope you are all keeping safe and well. COVID has spread a bit through the Orbx team but overall we have been able to keep going OK. Hope you are too! Till next time....

  16. Hi all, Here's a sneak preview of an unannounced project that will be coming to X-Plane 12 and Microsoft Flight Simulator - KDTW Detroit Metropolitan Airport! Simply called DTW or Metro Airport. this new product will be coming to Orbx in the new year with the X-Plane version released first. Developed by a small group of Indies (all will be revealed), the airport is being developed to ensure high levels of accuracy. The Motor City team have been building the airport based on real-world drawings and exclusive access to many areas of the airport. With 6 runways and covering an area of 4,850 acres, this is by far the biggest airport project being developed exclusively for Orbx. The airport will feature: Detailed and accurate hangar interiors Custom mesh for XP and MSFS Fully custom and high-definition GSE and static elements. All liveries and vehicle types are IRL, and not from a “generic” library. Toggleable hangar lighting effects in XP through SAM plug-in. Openable hangar doors in XP through SAM plug-in. Hangar door animations in MSFS relating to weather and date/time. Highly accurate terminal interiors 100% custom airport lighting Custom SAM jetways (XPlane) Also planned to complement the MSFS version, we are looking at developing a Detroit City Pack as well as KDET Coleman A. Young International Airport. Enjoy these early work-in-progress shots from X-Plane 12!

In fact, our whole user experience is built using the map as a base. Almost all pages include a beautiful, full-screen map. We have invested a lot of time into finding the best solution for displaying thousands of concurrent flights on our map, while still maintaining a fluid and smooth user experience. Using GPU rendering technology, we can show every airport, every waypoint, every airway, and every flight all at once, smoothly. At higher zoom levels, more details are progressively added to the data we show, and the underlying map itself. This keeps the map less cluttered and easier to digest. When flying online, or with friends, it’s important to know where they are. We aggregate live data for VATSIM, IVAO, PilotEdge, FSCloud and of course, Volanta. This is displayed in one integrated map. This aggregated flight data also allows you to import network flights that you did not fly on Volanta. Further, when a user is flying on both Volanta and an online network (for example, VATSIM), we automatically hide their network flight so that you only see the more frequently updated Volanta data. This results in a cleaner map, without unnecessary duplicates. As in real life, not all aircraft look the same. With Volanta, you can see various details about an aircraft at a glance, just by its icon and colour. We have icons for over 40 aircraft types, with more being added soon. The colour of an aircraft’s icon changes based on the network, and whether you’re friends with them. With so many possible map layers, including for online networks and navdata, it’s important that they’re easy to toggle on and off. This is easy in Volanta! Simply open the slide-out Map Settings on the right, then you can instantly turn layers on and off, with the results instantly reflected on the map. All of the information you’ll need is at your fingertips. When clicking on an aircraft on the map, we show graphs of the aircraft’s height and the ground, as well as rendering their full route on the map. We even render SIDs and STARs if they’re provided. This allows you to see if an aircraft is deviating from its planned route, and get a beautiful representation of the route on the map. We also display navigation data on the map. We’ve partnered with Navigraph to supply data for us. If you have a Navigraph subscription, we’ll show you data from the latest AIRAC cycle. If not, you’ll be shown data that is slightly out of date. Using OpenStreetMap data, when zooming into an airport, you’ll see runways, taxiways (including their identifiers), and gates all drawn in their correct locations. Flying requires thinking in three dimensions. Because of this, we include the aircraft’s altitude in position reports, and we draw it on the map. You can explore all of your past flights in 3D detail - see how well you flew the challenging approaches into airports like Innsbruck, Tivat or Calvi, then share it with your friends! Intelligent Tracking Flight tracking is at Volanta’s core, so we’ve put a lot of thought into efficiently tracking flights, so you can focus on what’s important. We call this “get in and fly.” The premise is simple: you shouldn’t have to complete a long process just to set up your flight tracking software. Here’s how it works. Make sure Volanta is running (can either be before or after starting your sim). Our tracking automatically starts - no more taking off then realising that you forgot to start tracking your flight! You can then just fly from your origin to your destination. Volanta will try to infer as much information about your flight as possible. For example, Volanta will try to autofill: Origin and Destination based on the position of your aircraft. Your Aircraft including registration and type, is automatically selected based on the aircraft you’re flying in the simulator. If you’re flying on a multiplayer network, we auto-fill as much information as we can. This reduces your workload and makes Volanta the smartest flight tracking app available. That said, if we do guess information incorrectly, or if you’d like to enter it yourself, you can override any information about your flight that Volanta has inferred. Your flight data gets sent to our servers every 10 seconds. This results in beautiful 3D flight paths on our map. However, we’ve implemented some smarts in this area too. As part of our Intelligent Tracking system, we have made Variable Rate Position Reports. When you are cruising we will reduce the rate of position reports if your aircraft remains almost exactly straight and level. The instant you start a turn, or change altitude, the position reports will go back to the highest frequency. This feature saves resources on your PC, and our servers - allowing us to keep Volanta fast and free for everyone without compromising on the quality of the data. We are careful to maintain the quality of the data we log for you. If you are slewing, or using replay mode, we will not send position reports to our servers. This keeps the data for your flight looking clean and beautiful. Sometimes, the real world can get in the way of your simulator time. If you need to pause, or use time acceleration, we handle that too. For every flight, we calculate both the real-world time, and the effective in-sim time. This gives you the ultimate flexibility to fly how you want, without giving any users an unfair advantage. After you’ve finished your flight and shut down your engines, Volanta will automatically end your flight after one minute. Then, when you’re ready, you can take off and fly to your next destination and have it all automatically logged by Volanta. This intelligent tracking technology allows you to leave Volanta minimised for a whole series of flights, then view it at the end of the day to see the beautiful visualisations we’ve created for you. We hope you enjoy tracking your flights with ease! Flights Once you’ve tracked your flight, you can view it from anywhere, at any time - we won’t make you pay just to access your past flight data. Each airport pair is drawn on the map, along with the frequency. The more you fly a route, the more vibrant the line will be. We also show your full virtual logbook in an easy timeline. Clicking on a past flight will reveal comprehensive data that we’ve stored for you. You can see the full 3D path of your flight, as well as useful metrics such as block time, flight time and fuel burned. Furthermore, you can see exactly where you touched down on the runway, as well as the landing rate, ground speed, wind direction and wind speed. Aircraft Volanta keeps track of your aircraft, anywhere in the world. Each unique aircraft has its own location, flight history, and accumulates flight hours (along with many other statistics). This allows you to track your favourite aircraft, and see which aircraft you need to pull out of the hangar more! Aircraft are automatically created for you when you start a flight - no manual work is required. If you already have an aircraft in your account, Volanta will automatically find it and assign it to your flight. Keeping your data accurate. This is just the start, we have many more features planned in this area. Planning One of the most important aspects of flying happens before you enter the aircraft. A detailed flight plan provides you with all the information you need to arrive safely at your destination. With Volanta, we can do the planning for you, or import a plan you already have. We’ve partnered with SimBrief, flight simulation’s best free flight planner, to make planning your flight even easier than before. You can plan your flight completely in Volanta, or plan it on SimBrief’s website - importing the details into your Volanta flight with a single click. Volanta’s intelligent tracking technology helps save you time here too. We already know your aircraft’s type, so you don’t need to enter it again just to plan your flight. If you’re flying on an online network like VATSIM, PilotEdge or IVAO, and you’ve filed a flight plan, you can import all of the details with one click. This is one of the easiest ways to get started with your flight. We’ve made it easy so you can focus on flying. If you use another planning tool like PFPX, you can import your flight plans using a saved route file or by pasting the route. You can do this at any time during your flight - you don’t need to do this before you start flying. That said, planning your flight is optional. If you don’t want to use a flight plan, you don’t have to. You don’t even need to know where your destination is, that’s fine. You shouldn’t have to change the way you fly just to use a flight tracking tool. Challenges As many flight simmers know, deciding where to fly can sometimes be challenging. In Volanta, we’ve built a robust and powerful challenge system to help. Challenges in Volanta can come in many shapes and sizes. Some challenges may be as simple as flying from A to B. Others may involve flying under a bridge, flying a route accurately, or a time trial. These truly test your abilities as a pilot and expand your horizons to new and exciting places. Completing challenges gives rewards, including achievements, experience and prizes. Some challenges are hand-crafted by our team, and others are automatically generated by our system. Exciting new challenges await every day. This is just the beginning for challenges. The challenge system will be one of our primary focus areas going forward, with new minigames in the works. We’re very excited to hear your ideas. Friends & Profiles One of the most rewarding aspects of flight simulation is flying with others. Volanta makes this fast and easy with our built-in friend system. Clicking on a friend in your friends list gives you easy access to a plethora of statistics on their profile. See their total number of hours, number of flights, distance flown, and their detailed flight history all from one place. With rich status, you can see where and what your friends are flying at a glance. If you’re a Discord user, we also forward your rich status there. Volanta profiles are the perfect way to share (or show off!) your flying to others. Although, the friend and profile system is optional - if you prefer to fly solo, you can. Volanta has robust privacy settings. You can control who sees your data. Simulator and OS Support Our goal is to enable any flight simmer, no matter their operating system or simulator, the ability to use Volanta. Our desktop app works on Windows, macOS and Linux. You can also use Volanta on the web, or on your phone to track your flight from anywhere in the world. The web and mobile versions have all the features you love from the desktop. For simulators, we currently support FSX (including Steam Edition), all versions of Prepar3D, X-Plane 11, and Microsoft Flight Simulator. Support for other simulators is coming soon! Data Imports and Exports If you already use existing flight tracking software, all of your data can be safely imported into Volanta. We currently support importing data from projectFLY and SimToolkitPro. We plan to add more soon - let us know where you want to import your data from. With Volanta, your data is truly yours. Through our data manager, you can export your data with only a few clicks. The data will be exported into easy to use .json files that you can import into other tools. This system is completely automated and usually finishes within an hour. You can export data on your schedule - no need to contact support. Roadmap This is just the beginning. We want to see Volanta grow into a tool everyone in our community uses. Integrations: we plan to integrate with many more simulators and services. DCS World, Infinite Flight and FlightGear are just some of the things on our list. Notifications: get notifications to your mobile device when you’re reaching top of descent. Get notified when your friends go online and start flying. Schedules: imitate real-world flights with up-to-date real-world schedules. Streaming tools: including a comprehensive overlay, a Twitch bot and a Twitch extension (plus more). More challenges: minigames, interactive challenges, multiplayer challenges. Translations into many other languages (let us know if you want to help!) Other community driven features Keep in mind that the roadmap above isn’t a commitment. It will be heavily shaped by what you, our community, want to see.
