FSFX Packages has apparently merged with their parent company OldProp Solutions inc. stating, “After 5 years of operation under the FSFX Packages name, we took the decision to combine FSFX with its parent company OldProp Solutions inc. This rebrand will be reflected on our website, products and social media publications from now on. All your products will remain unaffected by this change.”
In addition, the new OldProp has also released the 747 immersion package for the PMDG QOTS II. “After over a year in development, we are proud to release 747 Immersion today. It was a long time coming, but the wait is finally over. The Queen of the Skies deserves the very best, so we went out of our way to future-proof and redesign our Prepar3D Immersion platform from scratch to ensure this aircraft gets the very best visual effects possible. The result is incredible and we are very happy with the quality and soul we baked in this product.”
This package includes effect for:
- Volumetric Lighting
- Cloud Illumination
- Wing Condensation
- Jet Wash
- Engine Condensation
- Cold Engine Start
- Engine Smoke
- Touchdown Smoke
- Rain Drops
- Volumetric Rain
Many have also asked if this package would be compatible with the new 747-8 add on that PMDG recently released. In the video below, we do see the 747-8 featured so I would say it is safe to assume it is, even though the official system requirements specify the 747-400. In addition, OldProp clarifies that these advanced effects will not be seen in P3D’s native replay system.
The 747 Immersion can be purchased here for $29 USD.
***UPDATE: CONFIRMED – THE PACKAGE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE PMDG 747-8***
