The Reaktor AddOn development team is proud to present the new Reaktor AddOn for the FSX version of the flight simulator. Reaktor has had an 'official' software release for the FSX version of the simulator since the release of the flight simulator disc. Reaktor is a modular flight simulation add-on for FS2004 and open source. Reaktor exists to fill the gap left by the FSFS add-on.
As the name implies, the upgrade of the Simulation Interface has been changed a great deal. We still have Virtual Cockpit 3D, with its excellent graphics and high performance, but this time it offers a much simpler GUI and an improved integration with the Game. New controls, which were tested and refined in the last versions of the addon, have been added on top of the old ones. This way, the pilots have a wide choice of control actions, to be used whichever they look best for the flight needs and habits. On the other hand, the new interface has been also designed to optimize performance. It is not using animations for the blend transitions between windows or between the new and the old interface.
One of the most surprising changes in flight simulation is the Much Better Graphical Engine, developed by Digital Analysys. The Graphical Engine is capable of providing a much better, more accurate and more detailed graphical display for the time. Its main characteristics include full support for motions, animations and ragdoll effects, a huge increase of graphical details and a much more efficient scan-line rendering algorithm. It is also acclaimed for its well implemented shaders and textures. 7211a4ac4a
