News! - Aircraft Update : Boeing 767-300ER 1.1.12 by FlightFactor/Steptosky

 

FlightFactor_aero and SteptoSky have released an update for the Boeing 767. This v1.1.12 is mostly a bug and refine update, but there is a few special new features.

The main new features are:

  • *new click system, with lots of new options for cockpit interaction 
  • many FMS and AP improvements  
  • new cockpit tooltip system 
  • a lot of additions to the many 
  • new glow effects
  • updater (still in beta)

 

First new feature is the "tooltip"

On the iPad menu under Cockpit Interactions (General/Cokpt Interaction) there is a new selection called "tooltips". You can select right, left or hover mouse clicks (or off) to show what the item you have selected is and what it does...  handy.

 

Second feature is the lovely new glow effects.

 

The highlight here is the FMC panel to show off the effects to their full advantage.

Developers have spent years trying to make text and lettering clearer in the cockpit and now they want to make them blurry again...  but with a reason.

 

It is to show the depth of the glass in the instrument and the internal text reflection on that depth of glass. It is a amazingly lifelike and another step forward in realism in the cockpit...

In the darker cockpit environment the new glow effects are simply amazing, beautiful.

The glow effects are also used on the instrument lighting reflections. Most notable is the artificial horizon reflection that changes and glows with the instrument's activity.
