Today third-party developers shared more assets about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, alongside a new release.
Do keep in mind that sound isn’t recorded as it’s not ready for prime time yet.
A screenshot shared on the developer’s Discord shows the TCAS system in action, as it can actually fly the aircraft automatically out of harm’s way in case of an imminent collision.
We then get two teaser videos by FlyByWire showing upcoming features of their A32NX. Specifically, we can take a look at the TCAS alert in action and the enhanced LCD screens that will show detail down to the pixel.
We also heard from AUScene, which announced Lord Howe Island Airport (YLHI) and provided a single screenshot of the super-scenic location off the coast of mainland Australia.
Last, but not least, FSDG released Hewanorra International Airport (TLPL) in Saint Lucia in the Caribbean.
It’s available at the developer’s own store for €14,28. Below you can read an official features list and check out a few screenshots.
