SimCoders Reality Expansion Pack, Ongoing Updates

Over the past month or so, the SimCoders development team have released several new product updates for the Reality Expansion Pack.  Specifically, the software is now up to version 3.5.8 and the latest release build is currently available from the x-plane.org store.

Keep in mind, as a general rule, smaller updates are pushed out via the SkunkCrafts Updater.  When there is sufficient material to constitute a completely new base version, the updated package is sent to the store.

For those unfamiliar, SimCoders Reality Expansion Pack software is available for select third party aircraft and replaces certain internal components of the default X-Plane simulator with enhanced features.
