August 4, 2004

Today, the new IvAp Development Team brings out its first BETA - 0.2.0 - to a limited team. Some of the features of the new version:
- Complete Integration into Flight Simulator as one complete program!
- FSUIPC, SBHost, SBRelay, or Third Party Tools are not required!
- Aardvark and FSPainter Muliplayer Traffic Library (MTL) included for aircraft textures during multiplayer sessions!
- IvAp Modules can run on different PC's to reduce processor load!
- Automatic TeamSpeak channel switching for voice using Comm Radio or user interface!
- Auto Selection of active ATC frequency!
- Advanced visual multiplayer using the Multiplayer Traffic Library (MTL)!
- Supports all IvAc ATC client advanced features, latest and future IVAO server protocol, which includes flight plan change, no voice tag, and others!
- Real life ICAO Flight Plan with RVSM, routing syntax, and more . . . !



- Correct text format of text fields for the Callsign and flight plan route description!

- Realistic FMC characteristics with different looking templates!




- Easily accessed squawk mode C transponder with IDENT Button
- Aircraft Push back module with turning and final HDG indicated!
- Easily accessible Metar and Acars retrieval

IVAO created a new aircraft library to replace the old CSL system used by SquawkBox to improve the aircraft textures. This was accomplished with the assistance and permission from AI-Aardvark and FSpainter to use their models for the MTL. The quality, detail, and improved frame rates of their models for AI are astonishing! Several high quality paints of real life airlines are included from different well-known painters like: Boback Shahsafdari, Daniel DiBacco, Peter Pavlin, FSpainter, Vital Vanbeginne, just to name a few.



In addition IVAO member VA's will be able to submit their own aircraft textures "paints" for inclusion to the MTL. These textures will be verified for quality by the IVAO Flight Operations Department.

This first release of the new development team is the first step for completing the IvAp project, expect more news and BETA versions out soon.
