Today third-party developers had plenty of reveals to make about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Next comes SkyDesigners, which announced Djibouti–Ambouli International Airport (HDAM) serving the capital of the Republic of Djibouti.
As you can see in the images, while the airport is host to pretty relevant airliner traffic, the scenery will also focus a lot on the military part of the airport, including Camp Lemonnier, home of the international Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa.
If you like joint-use civilian and military airports as I do, this is very promising.
Last, but certainly not least, Pacific Islands Simulation, which is quite popular for its airports for older simulators, announced its roadmap for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
First will be Reno-Tahoe International (KRNO) this summer, of which you can see a few screenshots below. Then we’ll get Cleveland-Hopkins International (KCLE), followed by Incheon International (RKSI) in Korea in the fall. Salt Lake City Intl (KSLC) is also coming but it’ll take longer as it’s being worked on in parallel with its real-world construction.
Did I say that was the last? Well, it was about new products, but there is more. Orbx revealed an update coming to its excellent Cityscape Sydney add-on.
Speaking of add-ons, do keep in mind that we have a spiffy giveaway going on that can let you win one of 10 add-ons from Orbx’s lineup. You can find all the details here, but leaving a pertinent comment at the bottom of this post will serve as a valid entry.
