Microsoft Flight Simulator is a young platform, so developers are continuing to find impressive ways to break new ground.
You can see what I mean below.
At first sight, it may seem difficult to understand exactly what you’re looking at, but this is very impressive.
First of all, we see that the visual dock guidance system has been at least modeled. While we don’t see it in action, it does show an animated display.
Normally, the VDGS isn’t even modeled in Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, but this is certainly a step forward. It’ll be interesting to see if Aerosoft will manage to actually make it functional.
Perhaps equally impressive is what we see behind the VDGS and beyond the iconic curved glass of Brussels’ terminal. We can see that the people inside are actually subtly animated, providing a much more dynamic environment compared to what is in most airports nowadays.
At the moment, Brussels’ Airport doesn’t have a release date just yet. It has been pretty much a meme among the community with the first tease for previous simulators dating all the way back to 2013.
Now, with a change of development team and the switch to Microsoft Flight Simulator as the lead development platform, things appear to be finally moving apace.
Incidentally, if you’re interested in Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, you can enjoy our recent reviews of Sydney Airport, Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, Reggio Calabria Airport, Bastia Poretta Airport, Munich Airport, Paris Orly Airport, Newcastle International Airport, Sankt Johann Airfield, Dublin International Airport, and Seoul City Wow.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is already available for Windows 10 and Steam and will release in summer 2021 for Xbox Series X ad Series S.
A few weeks ago, we learned that over two million players have installed Microsoft Flight Simulator so far on their PCs, and a new update has been released just before Christmas.
