News! - Plugin Released : RealView Next by HST Simulations


HST RealView Next Header.jpg


Is it an upgrade or an update? HST have updated and renamed their RealView to RealView Next, but it is still a free update to earlier RealView purchasers, so that makes it an update. But the effect plugin has also been completely redeveloped to another more active level, and that makes it also an upgrade. RealView Next includes brand new movement technology, new camera immersion effects and more.


Headshaking and effects are not new to get a more realism feel to your flying, hence the earlier "Headshaker" by SimCoders and the best one currently out there by XPRealistic Pro v2.0 by rk Apps, of which I personally use.


Details noted of the new RealView Next

New Motion Engine
In the past, shaking worked according to a "harsh formula". The calculations were performed in a simplified mode, and the shaking was sharp. Many did not like this. In the new RealView Next, shaking works according to a "soft" formula. The new camera engine is able to process input in all directions, all directions are now independent, and the result of shaking each direction is calculated using an independent formula. The shaking is soft in all directions. Due to this, the effect of immersion in the real process has increased. We studied over one thousand POV (Point Of View) videos from the cockpit during takeoff, level flight and landing, and based on our own experience, we tuned our camera engine so that it would convey to you the exact sensations of what the pilot feels during the flight in all phases. This is the truly Real View.

New Upgraded User Interface
The updated user interface has received a new platform. 
Added soft animations when switching pages from one to another. The mechanism for saving settings has been improved. And also added a lot of new presets for aircraft. The interface just got better.
New Effects Processing Module
The new effects processing module provides precise reproduction of each effect depending on the phase of flight. Now the touch effect on takeoff will not play, and so on. All effects are played only when really needed. The new logic provides up to 99.9% accurate reproduction of real aerodynamic effects that affect viewing position, shaking and other effects.

New Effects Preview Mode
Just hold the slider! 
Now, in order to play the effect, you just need to hold down the slider, and the effect will be played at its apogee. This allows for more flexibility in customizing each effect.

New Angular Acceleration Effects
Yoke to the right - the view tilts to the right. Angular acceleration effects are back! 
Now these effects work much clearer, softer and more realistic. Simulated lateral acceleration will allow you to feel what a real pilot feels when turning to the side.


The new RealView Next was created using a new technology of camera movement, exactly the same on which the new RealView Pro will be created. In the new RealView Next, available huge list of effects, included innovations regarding communication with the server, etc. 
For the first time, VR Mode became available. A lot of new presets for aircraft were added and more…


A promotional video of RealView Next has also been hosted...



The new effects list is quite comprehensive below.

• Pitch General & Angular Axis;
Controls view depends of aircraft pitch, view will be changed due increase of speed or pitch;
• Horizon General & Angular Axis;
Controls horizon angle depends of aircraft bank angle, view will be angled due aircraft angle position or control position;
• Heading General & Angular Axis;
Controls heading angle depends of aircraft heading, view will be changed due aircraft heading change or ground rolling;
• G-Force Simualtion Module;
Simulate all G-Forces with soft movements and realistic forces. You need try to land aircraft with Over G or try to pull yoke to yourself - you will feel the G-Force;
• Static Camera Motion;
Reflects ground surfaces in static camera mode. You will feel vibrations, shakings which reflected by gear in static. 
• 3D Spherical Camera Motion;
Reflects ground surfaces in 3D spherical camera mode. You will feel the ground shakings which reflected by gears in 3D. Your view will softly reflect to it.
• Longitude G-Force;
When you set your thrust to takeoff, you will feel like you pulled into seat. When you push the brakes, you will feel like brakes tilt you.
• Side G-Force;
When you leaning your plane too much will push you into the corner of your seat and you will certainly feel it.
• Ground Touchdown Effect;
When you touch the ground, you will feel how your head beats if you land your plane too hard. If you plane will be landed softly - you will feel a light shake.
• Overspeed Effect;
When you accelerate a little too hard, the fuselage starts to vibrate from severe stress on it. 
You need to slow down, otherwise your plane may break down and collapse right in the air!
• Landing Gear Effect;
The best air brake? Correctly! Landing Gear. As you release and retract the landing gear, feel every vibration that a real person experiences while on the plane.
• Engine Effect;
Starting a rotary engine is always accompanied by vibrations in the cockpit - the pilots will tell you exactly! Feel every vibration from starting the engine. 
And if your engine is defective, feel the severe vibration and movement from the engine ahead of you!
• Flaps Effect;
The flaps are extended and retracted depending on the speed accompanied by vibration. Feel every vibration from your flaps as you retract and extend.
• Stall Effect;
If you are flying on an airplane and suddenly started to fall, you will understand this thanks to this effect. 
The intensifying lateral vibrations will not let you lie - you are stalled!
• Speed Brakes Effect;
The release and removal of the spoilers is always accompanied by a certain retraction into the seat and a slight vibration. This usually happens on every plane that sharply engages them. 
If you release the spoilers gently, or do not greatly affect the aerodynamic behavior of the aircraft, you will only feel a slight vibration across the cockpit panel.
• Automatic View Centerize;
Forward deflection can be automatically compensated at different speeds to the correct position.
• Smart Zoom
In a certain area, try turning the mouse wheel forward, you can get closer and zoom in on the area of the cockpit that you want. 
Did you do the manipulation? Came back by returning the wheel back. Smart zoom will help you with this.
• Angular Accelerations;
The yoke turns will be accurately compensated by angular accelerations. You will be able to fully experience the control of your aircraft.
• Environmental Vibrations;
RealView Next is deeply integrated with xAmbience Pro. You can feel each turbulence and air flow which can be properly inputed from xAmbience Pro Environmental Engine.
• Engine Reverse Thrust;
Feel reverse thrust of your engine by Longitude G-Force. Set it to full power and feel how your engine breaks you.
