Microsoft Flight Simulator Fukuoka & Block Island Get New Screenshots & Details; Dalaman Airport Announced

Third-party developers have shared quite a lot of news and assets about upcoming scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator today.

Third-party developers have shared quite a lot of news and assets about upcoming scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator today.

First of all, following the previous teases, SamScene3D has confirmed the announcement of its “Japan Fukuoka Wow” package which will include both airport and city. It’s coming this month.

Fukuoka Airport (RJFF) is the fourth-busiest passenger airport in Japan and sees crisp airliner traffic both on the domestic and international sides, so it’s definitely a welcome addition to the simulator. Its nature as an in-city airport makes it perfect for this kind of package that also adds detail to the city itself.

Next is Justsim, that announced Dalaman Airport (LTBS) in Turkey. It’s the 8th-busiest airport in the country by passenger traffic.

This kind of announcement by Justsim normally comes very close to release, so it should be around the corner.

We then hear from Gaya Simulations that provided a new look and the features list of Block Island State Airport (KBUID) in the United States.

  • Custom made and very authentic projected mesh (ground poly) with PBR textures (the right cracks, liquid asphalt, skid marks and much more!).
  • Of course with the correct slope to make it challenging as real as it gets
  • Ultra high details render of KBID airport and its surrounding – Animated cars and flags – Custom made and accurately pained static aircraft (include the New England Airline BN-2 Islander)
  • Custom-made road traffic (North American style ) for a large area over the island.
  • Custom made and accurate taxi signs and runway/taxiway lamps – Very detailed terminal and parking areas (yeah, Bethany’s Airport Diner included)
  • Custom cars with Rhode Island plates (for full immersion…)
  • Populated with summer-style people for the right vacation mode

Last, but not least, VerticalSim teased Fayetteville Regional Airport (KFAY) in North Carolina, United States.

As the name suggests, Fayetteville hosts a limited volume of regional traffic operated by Delta and American Eagle on top of plenty of general aviation, business, and some charter operations.

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. A few days ago, we also received lots of new details about upcoming content from Microsoft itself including a new aircraft and the next world update focused on Nordic countries.
