Aircraft Update : Embraer E-170 v1.07 by Supercritical Simulations Group

 

You will constantly now find that after the initial changes to X-Plane11 that most developers are going to then fine-tune the rest of their aircraft to the new format. The interesting thing about X-Plane11 is that on the surface the differences look very much the same, but deeper down there are more significant differences than what most developers thought as they came to grips with the dynamics of it all. The obvious is thrust changes and PBR texture differences, but it is the in the more marginal areas that can catch you out...  hence these smaller later updates.

 

By and large the v1.06 covered most of the X-Plane11 features with especular and textures for PBR and added in an updater to update directly from the the developer. This new v1.07 update from SSG is very (very) small revision, but does address a few more items on the X-Plane11 compatibility list.

There are only four changes here. First is that the aircraft is now both XP11 and XP10 with one set of files, so you don't have to swap and change to use what X-Plane version you require. Of course the correct XP11 logo now shows up in your aircraft menu and the other as "XP 10 Version".

 

One of the big performance areas of change in X-Plane11 was with the throttle. Here there has been some adjustment and with that now you get a full custom created auto-throttle system, which gives you finer control and better performance.

The terrain map has also had some improvements and is now more highly detailed. It will easily note the coast's outline now, and looks great in the Map/Nav screen.

Last item covered is the climb altitude behavior in both below and above the FL100 or 10,000ft point, just a minor change but again connected to the aircraft's thrust performance.

One thing that is really impressive is on how great the SGG E-170 looks in X-Plane11, is that in any lighting situation the aircraft looks simply superb.

 

Cabin is nice as well...

Summary

There is not much between the E-Jets of X-Crafts and SGG, both are worthy and both are now really good. This small but significant v1.07 update does give the SSG an edge between the two aircraft. And that keeps it well in the game as a great X-Plane11 compatible aircraft.

 

The earlier FMC issues have now been mostly addressed, but it still requires a bit of FMC skill to make sure it is correctly formatted, but it has significantly improved since the release review here: Aircraft Review : Embraer E-Jet 170LR Evolution by SSG

 

A quick service from KRSW South Florida to KIAH Houston proved the SSG E-Jet is a great aircraft on these short to medium routes. It is an aircraft to get to get totally familiar with the machine, the more you fly the E-Jet the more deeper the immersion is returned. So use it regularly to see the benefits.

 

Overall, very nice!
