As usual, the Polish developer proves to be master of static aircraft.
Last, but not least, we go to Japan with Gate15Scenery showcasing Okegawa Airfrield (RJT1). This is much smaller than the other two, but no less interesting due to its location. You’ll see what I mean when the developers show more.
Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim.
