The developers of FSEconomy and the Reality Expansion Pack series have partnered up to integrate their respective economy systems with a new beta update for REP users.

The announcement was made via the SimCoders blog, which you can find here. In the post, the developers say;

"Good news, everyone! After some weeks spent in testing it on a private server, the integration between FSEconomy and REP’s Economy System is now available on the public beta channel as v4.1.0. Many thanks to the guys at FSEconomy for putting so much efforts to let this become real!"

REP now provides three ways of functioning:

  • No Economy System: fix things via the Maintenance Report on the fly
  • REP’s Standalone Economy System: the one you already know and that’s not been changed right now. Fly, get rewards, spend your money to fix/upgrade your airplane
  • FSEconomy: like the standalone one but uses the FSEconomy bank account and provides no rewards as they are already provided by FSEconomy itself.

The main drawcard of the update is obviously the integration with FSEnconmy, however there are some other updates included in v4.1.0 too, with flight model upgrades for the Cessna 172SP and Centurion for XP11.

SimCoders predicts the update will move out of beta within a week.

To enable the beta functionality, follow these steps:

"Download your favorite REP’s package from the store after the update to v4.0.3. Inside the new zip, you’ll find a new set of skunkcrafts_updater.cfg files. Replace the ones you have in your aircraft’s main folder and you’re good to go. Just select the “Beta” channel in the SkunkCrafts Updater’s settings."
