RealAir Simulations P3D v4 Updates

 by Nels_Anderson News

'Back in 2016 we announced the closure of RealAir Simulations, who had been responsible for some really nice and very popular add-on aircraft.

Development was supposed to have stopped and further in December 2017 their web site announced the end of personalized email support. But now the web site shows the availability of updated installers to support Prepar3D v4 (in addition to previously supported FSX, FSX: Steam and Prepar3D v1, v2, v3).

Several aircraft have already been updated (Duke B60, Turbine Duke, Lancair Legacy) and their is a promise for updates for the Spitfire, Scout and SF260 "available shortly".'

RealAir Products: Unyielding Product Installers

Having just attempted to install one of my RealAir products using the original RealAir installation wrapper with my account information, I found that my installer would no longer connect to the RealAir server.

It might appear that RealAir servers are now offline (they said that one day this would happen), so instead I emailed them, but the postmaster diligently returned my plea unread and unanswered.

Thus, all of our RealAir product installers are now of no use whatsoever.

Right now I am busy attempting to backup all of my installed RealAir products by copying off all RealAir files from within my sim platform, and I would advise you to do the same. I can't offer you any advice over which files to backup as I simply don't know.

Whether restoring these files and folders in later years in an attempt to get your RealAir airborne again is  for now not clear as there may be a plethora of other files and registry entries to contend with, but at least it's a start.

...\FSX or P3D\Effects\RAS*.* (if present)
...\FSX or P3D\Gauges\RAS*.* (if present)
...\FSX or P3D\RealAir\<All Product Folders>
...\FSX or P3D\Simobjects\Airplanes\RealAir <All Products Listed>

Good luck!

XVision: X-Plane 11's "must-have" Freebie!

XVision is a fabulous freeware utility that will revolutionise your X-Plane skies and seas, not that they particularly needed an update because let's face it, X-Plane is the benchmark flight simulator platform, period..

Think of XVision as a one-stop-shop for an atmospheric environmental overhaul, and once you get it installed and running, you'll be left wondering however you managed without!

With a plethora of tweaks and settings, you will in no time be able to conjure up views like those show above. What's more, you can save and share settings, and with this in mind, delve into X-Plane.Org to find even more pre-configured user settings..They'll probably be called something like "XVision Ultimate-this!" or "XVision Extreme-that!"

So, don't delay, and go grab this wonderful bit of kit for free, because the word on Rumour Street (or aerial superhighway) is that for the next X-Plane iteration, this piece of exotica may become payware.
