    I'm glad to see y'all getting lots of development practice in as you work towards bringing the C-46, C-119, and Helldiver to MSFS. <grin>

    And the F3F-2, of course. That's your masterpiece!

    I'll of course buy the Electra and have fun with it in order to help fund those developments! It looks fantastic.

    Should give all the GPS haters one less thing to complain about!

    For those that dont follow us on facebook or youtube heres some of the news from today.

    We have released the dedicated electra web page found here

    https://www.aeroplaneheaven.com/product_electra.php

    There's a manual to download should you want to get to grips with the Electra early and a lot more screenshots.

    We also have made a youtube video introducing the Electra and doing a quick start and fly around. We took the comments on board that we received on our commentary previously and this time have left the running commentary going. Obvious mistakes and insane australian birds were cut but its more of a warts and all commentary. We think it works.



    Thanks for watching.

    Very cool!

    And don't let my earlier post imply I'm not excited about the Electra! Just having a lot of your awesome planes on earlier sims I want them all!

    But in the meantime, can't wait to fly this. Looks awesome.

    Sorry Im not sure, now I see the price is 0 and you cannot buy thread at this store (this buy button doesnt work), you still have to wait for simmarket or PC Aviator if you are from Europe.

    The buy button says "$oon," so we'll still have to wait patiently - if possible...

    Ok I need to talk to my bank about securing a line of credit to support my addon addiction, because as with the Ju-52... I cannot possibly NOT buy this lol.

    The feature set lists "legacy sound". What does that mean?
    Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.

    "The sound set uses legacy files.
    Although these sounds are authentic P&W engine sounds, we MAY be upgrading to a WWise soundpack at a later date."

    It means they are using loose .wav files and probably have a higher likelihood of a few issues: Audible looping, jarring transitions between files, etc. It's not a deal breaker for me but it's very amusing that they list this in a section called "Innovative features"

    Technically, it is just under "Features". However, we are happy with the soundset but may change to full WWise later if all goes well enough.

    We are proud to announce the release of the Electra 10 A for MSFS. Please note we are based in Australia where the sun is hot , the beer is cold and the internet is very slow. We will update our buy now page with the other vendors as soon as the uploads eventually get stored and they are put into the various shops .

    You can right now buy from our shop both on here or from our site.





    We kindly ask that if you require assistance and/or support please email us at help@aeroplaneheaven.com

    Happy Flying

    There are two ways to produce sounds for MSFS. The first is to use the previous P3D/FSX style of production which is called "Legacy" the other is to use a new system called WWise which Asobo have introduced with MSFS. Currently, there is a wave of enthusiasm for WWise mainly I think, because it is a new shiny thing. We are quite happy with the current sound set but may change later to the new one. WWise sets are notoriously complex and very expensive things to produce so we have to see how she goes.

    Totally fair bazzar. Now, I'm off to go fly an Electra, legacy sounds are probably the last thing I'd use as a reason not to get it!

    $40 CAD and lacking basic features like a native sound package? This sort of thing was acceptable when the sim was first released but that is a deal breaker for me at that price point. Hopefully that will be addressed in a future update, I enjoyed the sound package included in the Spitfire but even that was missing basic features like a soundai package, which left the Spitfire completely silent while flying with friends in multiplayer.

    The wave of enthusiasm for Wwise is because it is objectively better than the legacy sound and allows for a much more immersive experience, not simply because it's new.
