SimSolutions Releases DA40NG for X-Plane 11

A new development group has recently announced their presence in the community by releasing their rendition of the legendary Diamond DA40NG aircraft for X-Plane 11 in cooperation with the well-established and renowned iniBuilds.

Being it released through the iniBuilds website, it’s pretty clear that the addon has a certain level of detail and qualities. iniBuilds is not known for partnering with new development studios not aiming to release the best simulations.

As for the features, the aircraft addon has a lot to offer. From high-resolution 4K textures with PBR materials for the best immersion to enhanced Laminar G1000 avionics with custom engine instruments.

Additionally, the developers from SimSolutions have also worked on implementing custom FMOD sounds from FTSim+, toggleable tie-downs, inlet covers, and chocks as well as functioning doors and AviTab integration.

The aircraft can be purchased through iniBuild’s website for about €22 with taxes excluded.

The addon was released only two days after the initial announcement.
