Image
Farmington, CT USA November 28th, 2005 – Shockwave Productions has released an update to their the latest Wings of Power aircraft, the Wings of Power P47 THUNDERBOLT for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004®.


Wings of Power P47 "Thunderbolt" Update 1.1 changes
- Rockets can now be removed via in-game icon. When removing the rockets, the player should also remove the rocket payloads in game for accurate weights.
- The flight model has been modified to allow the pilot to accomplish three-point takeoffs and landings without the stall warning being activated.
- Engine run up can be accomplished at 2000 rpm with brakes set without any tendency to nose over, while retaining the aircraft's realistic ability to taxi at 900 rpm due to the high torque of the engine
- Landing strut extension calibrated to actual P47 extension at various weights
- Internal gear extension and retraction sound re-designed with hydraulics calibrated in stereo to both left and right gear

NOTE: This is version 1.2 including fixes to the wings leading edges

Features:
-Unprecedented authenticity inside and out

-Authentic cruise performance under various conditions with realistic fuel economy
-Absolute Realism even delivers authentic “distance-to-altitude” performance under various power settings
-High engine torque means full power cannot be applied with brakes on or aircraft will “nose over”
-Even the plugs will foul if you don’t keep your idle up just like the real P47
-Gorgeously constructed aircraft, inside and out, down to the last rivet
-Professionally recorded and mastered engine sounds with authentic P47 R-2800 Radial engine sounds captured by Shockwave engineers at all power levels, stall buffet, canopy, ground roll, flaps, gyro, and authentic cockpit wind
-Authentic drop tank release actually drops both fuel and weight
-Both modern and veteran warbird pilots helped create the “feel” of flight

Actually Scott, I hadn't done anything yet ... I was still at work when I asked the question and had not downloaded the update ... so all is well on my end.

In your "To Do" list ... make that feature a permenate to do. :)

Thanks Scott.

Downloading now.

Damn, I was going to take the night off from flying and get some work done.

That idea just went down the drain.

Thanks Scott! :)

Very excellent! Woo just took off from Steeple Morden ... what a nice trip.

Oh I was a little concerned about the tubes as I didn't see an option on plane choice. wasn't till I was in the 2d and saw the new icon to get rid of the tubes ... ( I suffer from a male affliction known as "I know how to run the damned thing without reading the instructions first!" IKHTRTDTWRTIF for short) ) I've since gone back and noticed that Scott said so in his release notes.

Works perfectly!

Scott I have a quick query about the update, I have just flown two varients and the tail wheel lock seems to be reversed ie you now push forward to lock the tail wheel instead of pulling back; should it be like this? Apart from that the update makes it even better. I expect there will be a few who will have some interesting Take offs and landings!!!!! Thanks a lot for this.

Seagull,

That is correct. You can look right on the lever housing - it says, "forward to lock, aft to steer."
