AI Monthly April 2013 AI MONTHLY KEEPING YOU UP TO DATE WITH EVERYTHING AI Edition 3 April 2013 BOEING 787 DREAMLINER RELEASED The UTT 787 has been a long time in the waiting, but has finally been released, meaning simmers can now replace the previous Globusworld model. On balance this is a very good model from the United Traffic Team, hopefully the CRJ-1000 and BAE Avro series will follow on with the same degree of success. With the return of the Boeing 787 into real-world skies this week, it only seems fitting that our AI skies can also be repopulated with one of the most technologically advanced aircraft. There have been many previews, screenshots and videos of the model in recent months, all seeming to suggest an imminent release; however, the wait has been well worth it. The model comes with a variety of repaints for airlines flying the 787, including Air India, Ethiopian Airlines, LAN Airlines, Qatar Airways, United Airlines and Japan Airlines. A paintkit is currently only available within the UTT group, and unfortunately hasn’t been released to the public. With the solution to the 787’s problems, it will only be a matter of time before the aircraft is delivered to many more airlines giving our AI skies further variety. The base model only includes a generic engine instead of the individual Rolls Royce and General Electric engines. Although being visually similar, this may disappoint some users. Undoubtedly the engine texture could do with some work also. These are soon forgotten about once you see the superb wingflex animation in action. Please note due to real life commitments we have not had time to write articles on ai tools as planned. We would like to apologise for this and we will include extra bits next month – thank you for your patience and understanding 1
