Well, hello again!
I covered lots of what was coming in our FreedomFox//Fox2: Sim Updates…and the ripple effect post earlier in the week. To provide a brief recap, for this update GotGravel and our aircraft team reworked the aircraft to fully support SU8 Prop Physics changes. We also added trim tabs on specific variants that would benefit from them in real life, overcame a few Asobo bugs, mainly with regards to co-pilot visibility, and delivered some cool new 3D mods. All new elements have individual texture sheets, which will make our many supportive livery painters very happy, we believe strongly in supporting creativity! Speaking of…are you a livery painter? Want to be on the inside line for future changes that may affect your art? Ping us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Big shout-out to our Aircraft, Scenery & 3D Asset teams for their hard work these past weeks banging out some really incredible work! We’ve ramped up the team, if you have a talent you think might be a great fit, feel free to ping us as well.
FreedomFox // Fox2 are excellent aircraft for beginners in flight sim, with modern-day comforts of autopilot systems, and a manageable amount of study-like simulation. We hope to continue being the chosen aircraft for a bit of fun and learning once we hit the MS Marketplace. We’re currently on final approach for submission.
