Safir again !?... YES!

Post by Andrey » 23 Jul 2010, 18:10

Hello friends!

Everyone who follows our forum, our news, should remember that just
when we release Safir project (for fs2004) D-EBED (Lufthansa training
airplane) were promised as free update.
But unfortunately years are passed, but we had no time to finish it.
And now I'm glad to inform you that it's again in our focus! (Sorry
Pitts fans, your favorite aircraft is next)

Not much things left, I hope it will be released in nearest month.
It will be free for everyone who bough Safir before.

- Cool avionics on board (HSI, ADF, KX155 Radio).
- Two\one pilot choice.
- Smooth VC, 100% equal to real one, as usual.

List is open, your recommendations is welcome.

Sorry but this moment we need no additional testers (exception only for
Lufthansa instructor pilots :))

Is this a 91B?
Computer: Black box with a bunch of electrical looking stuff inside. Lots of fans and blue lights and it sits there humming away gently and lets me play games on it.

Will the GPS stay on for more than 10 minutes?

Cool news Andrej!

Will the glass gauges reflect, on windows 7 also?

I do belive so, we change algorithm of reflection, now looks more realistic (same as in Bird Dog in deed - dynamic reflection isn't on all glass surface but just at the places it should be.

Thank you Andrej, I have the bird dog also and, in win7, the glass gauges are reflecting very well! So we can hope that the new algorithm will work as well (if I understood either have the same...).
I'm looking forward to fly this beauty, thanks for the upgrade!

I'm a bit confused. (no change there then!) Is this an update to the existing 91B with a new paint job, or is it a completely new model? :?

We doing the same Lufthansa guys did - took yellow Swedish B Safir, repaint it and place new gauges and avionics into. :)

Looking excellent - with just one small not of "suggestion" if I may.

Take a look at the Airliners.net images and I agree you have the blue about right, but when you look at the airliners.net images the blue looks darker. This is due to the shadow, which FSX does not do too well. It would be useful if you could add an extra shadow layer to the paint and paintkit to darken the lower edges of the plane so that underside colours appear darker and you get more definition.

I ask it of you because you can add shadow to a white 3D model and extract it as one piece so that we don't get mismatches between texture sheets. As a painter I could, but it takes much more work. Much more.

Not a must, but a nice to have. Oh... I haven't looked at the paintkit recently so forgive me if I missed something ;)

These shots look absolutely amazing! Looking forward to this one! I love this airplane.

BTW how will we be able to get the upgrade? - ie, when it is ready :)
