Magknight Preview update 787

X-Plane v11+ addon ontwikkelaar Magknight geeft de vliegers van deze sim zo’n beetje wat Quality Wings geeft aan de FSX/P3D vliegers als het gaat om een goede Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Eerlijk is eerlijk, de QW versie is op dit moment toch wel beter………maar zou er verandering in kunnen komen? Magknight werkt aan een flinke update voor hun reeds bestaande X-Plane V11 versie, en wat voor een update! We zullen u op de hoogte blijven houden in de toekomst. U leest hieronder alles over de genoemde update:

 

The full ‘rough’ list of the changes we can expect is below;

  • Added/completed side panels
  • Added closets and general rear area
  • Added dome roof
  • Subtly adjusted glareshield and other cockpit area shapes
  • Added/completed areas for light fixtures
  • Added/completed Captain/FO seats
  • Added/completed HUD
  • Added/completed “telephone line”
  • Added/completed nose wheel tiller
  • Finalized 3d of EFB area
  • Added AC vents
  • Added/completed more cupholders
  • Added/completed foot area for rudder pedals
  • Adjusted side/front window pillar thickness
  • Added compass area
  • Added fire extinguishers
  • Added emergency axe to break some crispy windows
  • Added/completed clippers
  • Added/completed document holder below the autopilot panel
  • Added/completed bolts below the autopilot panel
  • Added vents above the glareshield
  • Added a cup of coffee
  • Added/completed pen holders
  • Generated UVs for texturing

We also released plenty of photos of the refreshed cockpit. They have stressed, however, that the focus is ‘the modelling and not the texturing’ (at this moment) so now all of the renders are without materials.

They also set out goals for themselves on what to include in the upcoming update, so in addition to the above, we can also expect the following;

  • Closet doors
  • Compass
  • Escape hatch finalization
  • Floor rails
  • Light fixtures
  • Gloves
  • Rear cockpit seats
  • Finalization of rear pedestal
  • Rudder pedals
  • Yoke
  • Floor finalization
  • Tray tables
  • Coat hangers
  • Glareshield finalization
  • Window outline/railings
  • Animations (buttons, tray tables, escape hatch, closet hanger physics, flight deck door, seats)
  • Textures (everything)
