Microsoft Flight Simulator Embraer E-Jets, F-4 Phantom, & Hamilton Island Airport Get New Trailer & Screenshots
The venerable Phantom and the E-Jets for MSFS look very promising.
Today third-party developers shared news about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, Including aircraft and an airport.
We start with Aerosoft and its partner developer FlightSim Studio, which released a new video showing the flight deck of their upcoming Embraer E-Jets series.
While this doesn’t give much of an idea about the depth of the systems simulation, a video about that specific part will come next week.
DC Designs also provided an update on its F-4 Phantom. The developer has completed work on panel lines and rivets and placed all the main stencils for the F-4J, which will be different depending on whether the aircraft is from the US or the UK.
Work is undergoing on the MK-7 ejection seats and on the cockpit, albeit it will be some time before that can be shown. The model for the F-4E’s nose and cannon housing has been built, while the different exhausts and tail of the F-4K will be made in the new year.
DC Designs plans to announce its roadmap for 2023 next week, including two unannounced aircraft.
