iniBuilds have today taken to their forums to share the first development update in the new year addressing the iniSimulations A310-300 development as well as to officially announce the development of an A300 Beluga for X-Plane 11 and an upcoming update for the already released rendition of Shoreham Airfield (EGKA) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
First, it was said, that the development of the A310-300 rendition for X-Plane 11 is progressing “fantastically”, and that the developers are aiming to complete the next phase of the project in the next few weeks. It was not specified what is the subject of the “next phase”.
In the project announcement post, it was said, that the freighter variant of the aircraft will be included on the release, and the passenger variant will come later on. In today’s post, it was said, that both variants will be included on the release.
The aircraft is scheduled to enter beta testing in the next few months. There is yet no public release date or price yet.
As for the iniSimulations A300 BelugaST, it is going to be an expansion for the already existing A300 ON THE LINE for X-Plane 11. The expansion will not only include the aircraft itself, but a Chester/Hawarden Airport (EGNR) scenery will be released for free together upon the aircraft release for the whole community to enjoy. There is one of the main Airbus factories present at the airport, and iniBuilds wanted that to be included. The scenery is developed by ZeroDollarPayware.
This aircraft is scheduled to enter beta testing in the next couple of weeks and is expected to be released prior to the iniSimulations A310-300. Furthermore, it was said, that the iniSimulations A300 will not be required in order to purchase the product, however, owners of it will be eligible to a 15% discount.
We can expect the aircraft to feature a custom loader, various cockpit modifications, as well as everything you would expect from the iniBuilds’ ON THE LINE product range.
We should be able to get more information on the features in February this year.
As mentioned in the introduction, iniBuilds is working on an update for their Shoreham Airfield (EGKA) scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator which should bring numerous improvements and bug fixes to the scneery. This update, to version 1.10, is scheduled to be available in the next week or so.
