The Future

There have been a ton of great suggestions recently, most of which will eventually make it into the toolkit. Below are a highlight of what is planned and coming soon...

  • Dark Theme to match the dark map!
  • Taxiway viewer, potentially implemented as a seperate viewer or may be integrated into the livemap system
  • Localisation tools
  • Camera system with "auto director"
  • Scenery/Library management
  • Mac and Linux versions are coming, I just have some build kinks to work out!
  • IVAO/VATSIM ATC viewer
  • Airspace Boundary layers for mapping

All tools where possible will be made available for Prepar3D too.

Let me know what you want to see and we'll do what we can to sort it out. I want SimToolkitPro to be indispensible and we are getting there! Thanks to all who have downloaded and continue to use and support SimToolkitPro, and those who are active in the discord with ideas bugs and feedback, you've got this tool to where it is today!
