Aerofly FS 2 Steam Release EC135 now available!

  • With me it works without problems.

  • Hello, is it Orbx Innsbruck? Sorry for the offtopic, but how is the framerate? Recently bought Paris from France VFR, but it is unplayable in VR :-( Now I try to get some ffedback on that before purchasing...

    For Paris and Netherlands I had to upgrade to a GTX1660 Super with 6GB VRAM, before that I had a GTX1060 with 3GB VRAM. The older 3GB VRAM card did well with good framerates at Orbx Innsbruck. Depending on your PC it can help a lot to put shadows on low if needed....

    fpsVR (Steam) is a great tool to see in VR the load on CPU, GPU and VRAM.

    Orbx scenery are often cheaper at Orbx compared to Steam......

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    I'm unable to load any third party aircraft with latest beta (20200829).

    My p2008, krisk's or just flight, all give an endless list of geometry not found errors in the tm.log.

  • Is the oge hover correct with this model,according to the real ec 135 pilots who tested? Just curious cause I see it has less power now and oge hover at 7000ft is not alway attainable.

    I Did a few autos with it and it auto rotates beautifully. Was also wondering if anyone knows what the second knob (next to the vent knob) that you turn on the upper panel is for? When you turn it to Max, you get a green message “bleed air" come up on the display? Vortex ring also seems to be simulated very well. Really loving this EC 135. It is now my favourite favourite (any sim)

    Yep, same for me. Funny thing, the Arrow III is the only plane which loads at my end and for Sylvain it doesn't work.


    Jet-Pack (IPACS) Jan, if you are around; I'll answer you later tonight or latest tomorrow noon.

  • I forgot to specify that now that I no longer have these yaw problems the EC135 is a pure marvel, what a pleasure to ride and what power!


    It really provides other sensations than with the R22 but just as jubilant. They both form a magnificent couple for AFS2 and for helicopter lovers in general :love:

  • The altitude report of the A320 during landing seems to be restored to the Aerofly standard callout instead of Airbus callouts. Is this a known issue?

  • First of all - congratulations to the IPACS team for pulling off the massive feat that the EC135 represents! I am in awe of the whole team for bringing this modern helicopter to the community, as an INCLUDED aircraft in the AFS2! This simulator now represents the best VR-heli experience available to the casual home user and I bet it will drive a horde of new users to the platform.


    There is just one thing I would like the team to have another look at in the flight model - the rather large difference in lift between Hover In Ground Effect (IGE) and Hover OUT of Ground effect (OGE)? As it currently is - when approaching a landing and getting within what the flight model defines as being IN ground effect the increase in lift is massive and there is no "ramp up". For instance - when slowly moving forward from an "OUT of ground effect hover, for instance when approaching almost in level flight towards the roof of a high-rise building. When approximately half the rotor diameter is over the roof surface, there is no warning or "build-up" of an increase in lift, but it is very noticeable that the flight modelling suddenly changes a single parameter, and the helicopter "lurches" into the air, requiring an immediate large reduction in collective. I am a professional (fixed-wing mind you, so the hover "purists" may well argue it hardly counts;-)) pilot and fully realize that there is SOME difference and I also totally understand that the developers are aware of this and have included it in the modelling. My request however, is that they look again at the WAY this is modeled and - if possible - have a look at a more sophisticated and gradual build-up of lift, when translating into a steady Hover IN Ground Effect. At a very minimum the difference in lift provided between IGE and OGE should be reduced.


    And just to re-iterate - this is a very minor issue, and does NOT detract from what I believe is the best and most sophisticated rotary wing expereince available to the home enthusiasts!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    At the moment the height above ground for the ground effect is sampled at one point, which is why it jumps up when you fly over an edge. But that's the same in the R22 and not a new issue.

  • At the moment the height above ground for the ground effect is sampled at one point, which is why it jumps up when you fly over an edge. But that's the same in the R22 and not a new issue.

    Thanks for the response Jan. I appreciate that it is not a new issue, but the perceived effect on the EC135 is larger - by a big margin - than I have ever experienced it to be on the R22. I love the R22 as well and my post above is only attempted to be constructive commentary and not a criticism.
