Lockheed Vega 5 – Update 0.04 now available

Posted in

The Lockheed Vega 5 received her first update to version 0.04. Here’s a list of the new features and fixes.

  • Special effects
    The Lockheed Vega 5 now features effects that were expertly developed by FSFX Packages. The effects include new start-up smoke, landing light, touchdown effects, water spray, etc.
  • Two new liveries
    The package now features a livery of the Alaskan airline Mirow Air Service and a fictional livery for our friends at The Sky Lounge
  • Fuel dump
    You’ll find a fuel dump valve mounted under the wobble pump.
  • Walkaround Interface
    A new panel is available now that enables you to perform a walkaround of your aircraft before your flight.
  • Expansion of the Prop-o-Tronic physics engine
    Our physics engine also received an update. With this update we are able to accurately simulate the heat-exchange between various components of the engine. Some parameters still need some fine-tuning, but the algorithms work accurately.
  • Overhaul of the oil system
    The lubrication module also received an update, pressure and flow parameters are calculated more accurately now.
  • Handheld radio
    Based on popular demand we included a simple 2d gauge of a handheld radio. This needs to be activated manually though – please refer to the manual for instructions.
  • Overhaul of the vacuum system
    I re-routed the plumbing of the vacuum system. The Venturi tube now only supplies the turn and bank indicator with pressure.
  • [bug fix] OOM bug
    Sorted out the OOM bug in the FSX version of the aircraft. You will now be able to undertake longer flights without interruption.
  • [bug fix] Tie-downs
    The tie-downs of the aircraft are now visible in the 3d model of the aircraft.
  • [bug fix] Wheel chocks
    I implemented a new routine to hold the aircraft in place when the wheel chocks or the tie-downs are applied. It’s still not 100%, but I think a better solution to the problem compared to before.
  • Ashtrays
    Ashtrays. You’ll see.

As announced, with the new update of the Vega, the price was raised by 5 Euros to reflect the additional functions and features implemented in this update.

I hope you enjoy the update 0.04!
