Project Update – September 2019
Time for a new update!
Another batch packed, loaded and on it’s way to their pilots.
Every time I see a van filled with our devices (yours now!), feels really awesome. 🙂
We keep working every day at 200% to keep them coming!
As promised, Stickers and Plexi covers are hitting the web-shop!
Not only that, you will see that we are getting the shop up to date so you can include things like the USB cable, the pivot joint, extra screws, tools…
This way you will be able to customize your orders as you prefer including the elements that best fits your sim-pit.
Smartphone holder and Cup holder
The Smartphone holder, specially designed for the b-explorer, is now also available for standard orders. -> More details on our online shop <-
We know, flying around all day is an exhausting job, so what better than having your cold drink resting comfortably in your cup holder? Already in store, just in time.
Ready to use in your Monstertech mount. -> More details on our online shop <-
The news are not stopping here. For those of you that have requested us BlackHog themed clothing and accessories… we are finally opening the Merchstore!
You will find not only the logo, but also designs we are bringing specially for this occasion.
The selection of items and designs will vary depending on your preferences, so make sure to tell us what are your favorites or what would you like to see.
Last time I talked about ED Fleet Carriers, this time around is all about DCS with Supercarriers.
By their own words “the most accurate and detailed carrier model ever created for a flight simulation“, including unique skins for all ships of the Roosevelt sub-class..
They are also working on a lot of things like up to 18 spawning locations on the carrier deck, flood lights, barricade net, among others.
It’s looking pretty sweet!
MS Flight Simulator: Insider Program
Anyone in the mood to help MS with their upcoming Flight Simulator? For pilots interested in providing feedback, access to private forums, answer surveys… Also the chance to participate in preview builds! -> https://www.flightsimulator.com/insider-program-sign-up/
They recently talked about the 3 phases they are working on now, and also revealed the Development Roadmap:
September 12th will be the date for both: the Tech Alpha sign-up and also for the next update. So mark that calendar if you are interested.
Kerbal Space Program 2
So wow… Wow…WOW!!!
We are big fans of Kerbal Space Program here at BlackHog, I’m still in shock with the announcement, had to check 3 times it was not April fools or similar.
At Gamescom Opening Night Live, we had an amazing surprise announcement: Kerbal Space Program 2 is coming next year!!!!
The big points seems to be: interstellar travel, multiplayer and colony creation.
I can’t wait to see what are they capable to do. Improved KSP with your friends and interstellar travel? Sign me in!.
And that’s it for now.
Thank you as always for your support, and keep sending suggestions!
For more information, stay tuned on Twitter @BlackHog_BH or facebook @blackhogcontrollers !
Great that we can order add-ons now! Especially the cup holder will be an indispensable added value to any sim pit!
Looking forward when estimated shipping dates will come to the shop page!
Once an order goes into production, how long should it take to complete and ship?
Thank you for getting in contact, production is a few weeks progress. Your controller is being packaged right now. It will be shipped this week, we will send you an email of confirmation with the tracking number very soon.
I just wonder if, you have the time to “post” any update about production and order/pre-ordered items!!!??
I’m getting more and more impatient, and it’s a good thing!!! I guess 🙂
Thank you guys!!
Your order is already in production, it will be a few weeks to finish the production. As soon as your controller is ready, we will send you an email confirmation with the tracking number. Almost there!
With all the focus in production, I sometimes lose track of time with the updates, I´ll find some time to post something soon, thank you for the heads up!
Little bummed the updates have stopped. I was looking forward to these on a regular basis. Any plans on updates in the near future? Curious to see how things (and my order) are going.
Cheers and hope you’ve a great 2020.
Glad that you liked our updates and hope you have a great year too Matthew. 😀
At this moment, the three of us are focused in production to deliver everyone’s b-explorer as soon as possible. We also miss making the updates, but they are not gone for good, we will bring them back for sure at some point.
I have sent you an update on your order to your email.
