More tweaks, Adrenaline becomes Prince, Vancouver+ progress …

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

Phil Taylor posts about more tweaks for FSX.  Haven’t tried these myself yet.  I’m pretty happy with my performance at this point, although I note that after flying for a while FPS can drop a lot.  Saving the flight, closing the sim and restarting it can double my framerates.  So FSX is not releasing some type of resource properly.

Paul Lange gives us an update on the FSX expansion-pack-formerly-known-as-Adrenaline, due out this fall.   The name “Adrenaline” is gone, but the replacement is not announced as yet, so we can call it the EPFKAA, or Prince, for short, until MS better informs us.  Looks a like a lot of the new missions will be heli scenarios, which for that smaller market segment will be a lot of fun.  Seems likely moving aircraft carrier missions will be in the mix, if that would be what Paul calls, “large moving aquatic objects,” and maybe (he says) “something to land on it with”.  Hmm, wonder what that could be?  Another ultralight?  Of course, racing is an important part of this product.

The Vancouver+ beta team has the 2nd of 3 planned beta drops, the final drop will be a release candidate (RC) in the next week or two.  The team is providing a wealth of great feedback helping us to refine the product., between the 1st and 2nd drop we had nearly 100 changes, fixes and improvements.  And don’t be reading a release date into the fact the RC date is coming close; it has to go through testing, then we jump through the hoops of the distribution release process.  But it is time to make sure your credit cards don’t expire soon …
