717 Immersion

Effects package for the TFDi 717

717 Immersion was designed with an intricate attention to details. The small size of this passenger jet aircraft makes every single effect more noticeable, more enjoyable and above everything, more immersing! We have hand-placed every effect to bring them an edge closer to perfection. The effects displayed in 717 Immersion are of utmost quality and provide an immersion that is second to none!

Performance at first

Respect for performance is dear to us. Several hours of testing with some of the big names in the community went into making sure our product has little to no impact on performance. We think we have reached the perfect balance between incredible effects, great frame rates and an extremely low memory footprint.

Volumetric lighting

Volumetric lighting on the 717 is absolutely stunning! The unique set up of lights on the Boeing 717 makes the volumetric lighting quite impressive. It is through the volumetric lighting on a foggy night that one truly understands the complexity of the 717 exterior lighting system! It’s quite the light show!

Cloud illumination

Nothing beats flying into a muddy sky and gliding from one cloud to another, seeing those two landing light beams lighting up those clouds! The cloud illumination feature changes the way we fly in our sims. It is a new feature that we have recently introduced which increase realism ten-fold!

Wing condensation

Wing condensation is now a well-known feature of our Immersion series. However, never have the wing condensation effects been more sharp and on point to fit with the angry puppy’s look! The melding of the wing condensation effect with the wing flap’s trailing edge condensation effect is simply awe-inspiring!

Cold start

The two engines on the Boeing 717 are humongous in relation to the size of the plane. You bet you that the cold start effect on the 717 is very, very impressive! There is nothing better than looking at that early morning smoke blowing off from these two engines with fierce and power!


Nothing is more satisfying as to see the difference between our volumetric contrails and the default ones. As such, we made it our priority to make the contrails feel and look as genuine as possible for the Boeing 717. The contrails are not only sharp-looking, they are faithfully representing the true 717 contrails!

+ many other effects

As always, 717 Immersion comes with all the other great quality effects that you have come to love from us. These include but are definitely not limited to touch down smoke effect, brake dust upon retracting the gear, volumetric rain, wheels spray and engine wash!
