First of all, congratulations on the high quality helicopter model. I have an important question. I get a very bad FPS value in the cockpit view of the EC 135 helicopter. The simulator starts stuttering in cockpit view. This is a very big problem. They know what is causing this serious problem. This error takes away the experience …
Will this error be fixed on the EC 145 helicopter?
I bought all the developer (Carenado, JustFlight) flying models, but the running is smooth, I get a flawless frame rate even in the cockpit view.
Hi there, are you on our Discord? If so please report your concern there or in our Airbus H135 thread.
What you’re reporting is not a known issue, I was just in a group flight with half a dozen H135 pilots last night and this issue was not voiced by anyone so we probably need to resolve your issue through troubleshooting your specific setup.
In reference to the H145 I can tell you that having great performance is a high priority item for us. We have a wide range of hardware available to our team, including VR hardware so we will be working hard on optimization across that platform as well.
And that’s why I am asking for more information. To be able to assess the value of the product.
Everyone should be able to voice their concerns and ask questions when something is not clear for them. That’s what I’m doing. I know it’s not always comfortable questions or comments and it would be easier if I didn’t ask them but, like I said, this whole process is weird for me and I’m trying to clarify a things so I have a better understanding of the product.
Could you please point out where I did this, exactly? It’s not my intention to be incorrect or negative and I would like to have the opportunity to take a second look at those comments. Thank you.
I’ve given multiple answers and based off your history in the flight sim community I know you are aware that devs will release more details about their aircraft the closer they get to release.
The only difference here is we have preorders available which people can completely ignore until they’ve heard or seen enough about the project to influence them to support the project.
This is an example of a comment you took out of context. I have said multiple times in this thread that we welcome feedback and the openness of our Discord shows that we don’t run away from questions or develop our aircraft in secrecy.
What I said in my reply is that you should not position yourself as the authority on what is allowed in the flight sim community and should allow the community to vote with their wallets. You are absolutely welcome to provide your feedback and ask questions and I’ll always respond as best as I can.
The community will hold anyone else who emulates us to the high standards we’ve set with the H135 and will raise even higher with the H145.
Don’t take my word for it, you’re on our Discord - interview a supporter of any of our projects and ask them why they support our team. We’ve proven ourselves, we shouldn’t be critiqued over concerns you have about other development teams.
I’ve noted an example above, and @BostonJeremy77 noted as well how you took my comment about not pushing early access marketing/sales to mean I’m not confident in our product when that is the furthest thing from the truth.
I mentioned previously that I honestly think the visual quality of our H145 is unmatched and everyone (including other devs) knows Dave is a wizard when it comes to all things related to flight models and systems so I have ZERO concerns about us living up to expectations - I have personally been blown away from the behind the scenes stuff and I own almost every addon aircraft so I’m not easy to impress.
Again, I respect your concerns and your opinion I just do not agree with them as I think the work we’ve already done in the community shows we aren’t here to take advantage of it.
Our weekly dev series starts tomorrow and we’re excited to show off some major work that has already been completed.
Sergio, there are truly no hard feelings and I’ll make the offer here to talk to you 1 on 1 whenever you’d like if you’d like to just discuss the topic further. We may not ever agree, but I think we both at least respectfully understand where each other are coming from.
That’s not taking anything from context. You are saying I’m positioning myself as “the authority on what is allowed in the flight sim community” when, in reality, I’m trying to understand the actual value of the product and what is it that we are getting with our money.
I may be making uncomfortable questions, yes, but since you are asking the community for money, I think it’s fair to try and assess exactly what is it that people will be getting in exchange. It’s that simple. I’m not being “authoritative”. I’m trying to clear things up.
It is true that developers fill up feature lists as they go. But they usually have a list of features closed when asking for a certain amount of money, as they have valued their product already. You mentioned there is a justification for the price increase and, again, I tried to understand what it was.
That’s the message you seem to be passing on to people. That’s the feeling I get from a developer that tells me “oh, look, if you don’t find it interesting, that’s OK, we are not forcing people to buy”. I’m not saying you are not trusting your product but that’s what comes across when you say something like that. Of course no one expects you to put the foot on the door, “old-vacuum-cleaner-salesmen style”.
You guys should be justifying pre-orders with the product itself, not just a leap of faith or saying people they don’t have to buy into it if they don’t want to. We know that. But we want to see a bit more, we want to understand the underlying value.
What you are seeing right now with the project is not public. We have no clue. I think you are being “blind from the outside” which is a phenomena that happens to development teams. They are not able to perceive how people outside the team/company see the product as they are omniscient. They know everything. So, it’s easy for fall into saying “this is great, it’s worth $100, give it to us, have faith”.
We don’t see that. We have no awareness of what’s going on and while a lot of people do “have faith”, others really don’t get it. My questions have been an attempt to get more information out to the public, because, again, Steven, really… $43 for a product sets you at a level that will need to surpass the best X-Plane addons on the market. And that is quite a tall order. But that’s a whole different matter we can discuss privately if you so wish to. I’m always available to help out. Dave knows, that as I already told him, that I’ll be here in case you guys want to have a chat or need help with something (that’s why I talked about my experience in the community, so that you realize I may be able to give some input that may help you out).
Like I said, I have nothing against your team and you are perfectly free to conduct business in whatever form you want to. Things will eventually work or not, which is perfectly normal. My concerns go a bit further than this specific situation.
With our Airbus H145 in full development we’ve started a weekly update series to keep the community informed of our progress.
This week’s video focuses on modeling work and the incredible detail that Tony and Guillaume are putting into each of the H145’s variants. We hope you enjoy this behind the scenes peek and we can’t wait to share additional details and footage with you all.
With this announcement that the first flyable build will be available in August we will also be moving the development update series to a bi-weekly release schedule so that we have time to have higher quality updates to provide you all in the community.
Development Update # 3 is now available to watch on YouTube! Show us some love on the video and share it to your favorite social media platforms
Hi together, i’m one of the guys who supports the dev of the H145 with pics and infos (for free!).
I can’t understand why some make a real big thing on the pre-order price of it!
A real Simmer pays to much money for to much stuff that is rarely used (oh man, i own a lot of ORBX products…)
All the guys who plays on PS or XBox pre order games sometimes 8 month before, and thats 70 bugs!
No one need to buy it now.
I never use discord till May '21. I use it only for the HPG guys and they do an really really good job and support for the community.
I want to support young, new developers!!!
Of course, MSFS didn’t support Helos, but the H135 was a try, a nice try to open that beautiful, hardwarehungry Sim to the Heli Community. And a lot of “old” Simmers (like me from FSX, Xp9,…) like that really much and we are looking forward to the 145.
So guys, please live and let live! X-Plane Helos are nearly the same pricing and thats to much for that what you get…
So came down and keep calm!
Sorry for my not perfect english, i’m a not native speaker… GER
Tonypezz, GBZH35 & @davux3 have made huge leaps forward in development in anticipation of our H145’s first flyable build releasing in August and we’re happy to finally be able to share how the H145 is looking in sim as well as the first look at the new systems that have been designed by Dave.
Airbus H145 - Development Update # 4 is out on YouTube now! Go watch it and leave us a comment with what has you most excited about the H145!
Here are a few of our favorite screenshots from the video in full HD quality…
Congratulations! Wonderful work! The highest quality helicopter accessory I have ever seen. The exterior model is fantastic. I hope the cockpit will be amazing too.
I hope the flight dynamics will be good too. The flight dynamics of the EC 135 is very poor. It does not resemble the flight dynamics of helicopters. I hope this helicopter will have new, realistic flight dynamics.
