Meet the Catamaran Lagoon 450, now available in Microsoft Flight Simulator through Marine RM, the newest vessel for a better nautical simulation in the game. The Lagoon 450 presents a level of detail and features that make it stand out among the boat options available in the simulator so far.
One of the features of this catamaran is its integrated multifunction tablet. With it, you can enjoy a complete sailing experience, including the ability to activate the anchor, make sails (which are decorative) visible, adjust mooring ropes and even change the deck material, providing total control over the sail. appearance and operation of the vessel. There is also a GPS screen for more precise navigation and ignition control via a key on the dashboard, with precise animations and sounds. Attention to detail was the focus here, with 4k PBR textures providing a very realistic visual representation. Additionally, with 13 different color options, players can customize their Lagoon 450 to their individual preferences, changing colors and materials during gameplay for unique type combinations, making each sailing experience unique. Another special feature was the modeling of the passengers, who are represented in a highly detailed way. Still on systems, the lighting controls are exceptional, allowing players to control the catamaran's internal and external lights. The ability to create a romantic nighttime or party atmosphere with animated lights is a classy touch that takes the simulation experience to the next level.
There were several reports from users of unusual situations, but with a similar report: it was impossible to control the boat / the boat stalls in a certain direction - this is not a problem linked to the Add-On itself, but a missing setting in the game standard for more experienced simulations. Piloting assistants disable some features that break the mobility of boats in the water and cause situations where users cannot navigate - and unfortunately they end up, without knowing the reason, blaming the Add-On for this. These images show a recommended configuration for navigating with a keyboard, joystick or other external control hardware, bearing in mind that some of these hardware (especially those with a landing gear lever) may present unusual or unexpected situations due to the nature of the hardware - already that it was designed for runways and airplanes.
