Let’s move on to the next versions, SC designs provided new screenshots and a development update for their F-16C Fighting Falcon.
Interestingly, we also get pricing information. The package will cost around $ 34.
Our apologies for the delay in posting here, it has been an extremely busy month.
After a two week hiatus, with the DC Designs F-14 Tomcats being launched, he resumed work on the F-16s. This week saw the model change to reflect the new GE-F100 engines and exhausts fitted to the latest F-16C model, as well as some coding to create visibility conditions for the various stores, fuel tanks and ammunition at outside. model.
The interior model was also installed and compiled in order to verify the PBR and the modeling inside the simulator. Obviously all the images are WIP, as are the textures and modeling, but it’s a smart step to bring things into the simulator to make sure they are going in the right direction.
One thing that is most remarkable about the F-16 Falcon is how incredibly small the cockpit is! In VR it really feels like there’s very little room, although the huge teardrop-shaped canopy prevents any feeling of claustrophobia – in fact, it’s even a bit annoying to have visibility too unbelievable. The screenshots don’t really do it justice!
I’m happy to report that Sim Acoustics is making the sounds for the F-16s, having already created the GE-F100 sounds for the DC Designs F-15 Eagles, so the plane will ring loud.
Work will now continue at a steady pace on the Falcons, as will updates here, with a November 2021 launch date now on target. The package will contain both the F-16C single-seater Falcon and the F-16D two-seater Falcon, and will sell for the same price as the DCD F-14 Tomcats, around $ 34, with the package including a manual and paint kit, and also the same potential for customization as the Tomcats.
Finally, a new gallery of screenshots has been posted by Fenix simulations showing the pretty flight deck of his Airbus A320, the new liveries and CPDLC integration.
