NextGen Simulations Publishes Status Update

NextGen Simulations has taken to Facebook to not only thank the community for all their support and feedback, but also provide a status update on current and future developments.

They are clearly thankful for all the feedback they have received for the Embraer Bandeirante, and they are taking note of all the suggestions for future updates to this popular aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator. They have made reference to providing a PDF tutorial flight, and paint kits for this aircraft, but they suggest things are taking longer than expected due to technical issues involving the stock SDK for MSFS.

However, they are planning on releasing a new soundpack in an upcoming service pack update, in response to complaints about the sound of the engines. They are also looking into FPS drops while in the cockpit, and while this may not be fixed in time for the next service pack, they promise they are on it.

They have, however, decided not to develop the Bandeirante for P3D or FSX and are concentrating on providing addons for MSFS.

Moving on to their development roadmap, NextGen Simulations has announced that they will soon enter into development of the Embraer ERJ family, and after that they plan on developing the Saab 340B&2000. Other plans include the Dash 8-Q400, the Fokker 50, the Fokker 70&100 and even the Embraer E-Jets.

As an afterthought, they do mention that they plan to release the Bandeirulha as a complementary product to the Bandeirante, though development would not be immediate but possible after the EMB-110’s SP1 is released.

I have been an avid aviation enthusiast for about eight years since I first started using FSX. Apart from flying in the sims (now X-Plane 11 and MSFS) I enjoy reading about aviation through the many periodicals and books available. I live in South Yorkshire in the northern half of the UK.
