Third-party developers continue to provide news and assets about upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, including two relevant freeware aircraft.
Moving on to aircraft, Digital Flight Dynamics provided a WIP look at the textures and decals of the flight deck of its Airbus A350-1000, which will be freeware and open-soruce.
If you’d like to follow the project, you can find the developers on their own Discord server.
Speaking of freeware and open-source, No Limit Simulations (NLS) provided more renders of its upcoming Airbus A340-600.
Here’s a list of the recent progress.
- Added new pedestal in the cockpit for a better visual experience, this including:
- New switches and knobs.
- Whole new base pedestal model.
- New MCDU and Throttle Levers.
- New engines with improved details:
- New Reverses that are more accurate to the real ones.
- New pedals added to the cockpit, more accurate and better detailed.
- EFB added to the model with an older looking case.
Once again, you can follow the project on the developers’ Discord Server.
Last, but not least, Skyline Simulations announced a brand new upcoming airport, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (KCVG) in the United States.
At the moment, no further details were provided byond the image below and the fact that it should release this month.
KCVG is a relevant destination for domestic and international airline flights, on top of the 7th busiest cargo airport in the United States, so it’s definitely a welcome addition to the sim.
Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, focusing on the Xbox version and short and long-term plans for the sim (on both platforms).
