SquawkBox 3.0.2

A new patch of SquawkBox is now available. It is recommended that everyone download and install this patch. It is not necessary to uninstall the old version. The biggest change you will notice is support for much smoother aircraft motion. To enable this feature I suggest the following: go to the Advanced Options and enable "Allow Flight Simulator to smooth plane positions". Then go to the Multiplayer Options and reduce your "frequency of plane position updates" to a much lower number. I recommend 4 per second. This will shift a lot of the load of smoothing aircraft positions from SquawkBox onto Flight Simulator, which is more efficient. You should now notice that the smoothness of aircraft is now only limited by your frame rate in Flight Simulator.
