From the beginning an enormous amount of time has been dedicated to the SotS project. Reengineering was a painful but necessary practice. But finally I can say Gold version has attained the highest standards in the flight simulation market and it has become my favorite one :) . The sim I always dreamed.

Aerodynamics

Stalls, slips, and control feedback, force joystick and sound are carefully modeled. Force feedback joysticks are fully integrated in the simulation. And a lastly addtion from version 5.0 is the possibility to use your webcam to pan your view: cheap and funny!!.

Take off

Three different modes: aerotow, winch and bungee launching ("sandows" in German) are allowed.

Weather model

The model uses two cloud layers: cumulus and stratus. The volume is assured by the use of a sprite model for every cloud. Clouds form and dissipate with time and depending on the weather condition. The weather model represents atmosphere movement of lows and highs. The fronts are also included in this model.

AI

Aritficial Intelegence. Gliders, motor gliders and birds compete for the air. Leave the sim takes the control and you will feel an expert teaching you.

Terrain engine

LOD technology is used for better result. In particular ROAM “Real-time optimally adapting meshes” approximation gathers accuracy and speed, ideal for flight simulators.
 

Photo-realistic sceneries can be handled at a good performance and the addition of trees and buildings take out that in other flat impression.

On-line play

Very smooth, no limit to the number of participants. The on-line multiplay option is a must and has been carefully included in SotS. You can easily make new friends in the air.

Set up your sessions in advance or just in time. It will be published if you want allowing others to join you and play your task.

Tasks

From the map you can create your task and use them in your on-line sessions. You can use the real waypoint list supplied by SeeYou team to define them.

Record

NMEA output and IGC formats are available. You can also replay your task in 3D mode at a lower scale for a clearer analisis.

Webcam and Radio Communication

Webcam can be used for panning in internal view.

Voice intercommunication is possible from version 6.0, press Tab key on the keyboard to start recording your voice. Your message will be sent to any other player when Tab key is depressed. Try to be clear and calm. You can change from voice to writting mode pressing Ctrl+Tab. On the configuration window the Voice Intercommunication checkbox has to be checked.

JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
Wladimir Belenky
New EDDL scenery has surprisingly supper performance! So, thank you Justsim. But I hoped that it would be more lively than its predecessor - static aircraft would make a better picture here. Otherwise is a successful update!
JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
kostis papageorgiou
Very good update from JS. Excellent performance for just a big scenery and very good visuals. The only thing i would like, is the 3d grass all the time of the year. It dissapears at fall/witer.

MAJESTIC SOFTWARE - DASH 8 Q400 PRO EDITION 64BIT P3D
Andrew Urbanczyk
My first addon for Flight sim in General. Started in FSX and got the one for P3D as soon as I could. It is by far my favorite aircraft in all of flight simulation. Anyone who is on the fence, make the move. It is fantastic in every way.
