Today third-party developers had some reveals, assets, and releases to share of add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
One of the most interesting pieces of news is that users will be able to decide what part of their PC will render the flight deck’s displays, which are often rather power-hungry. Options include CPU, GPU, and even the possible integrated GPU you may have sitting around and doing nothing, which apparently proves rather effective.
You can check out the menu for that and a few screenshots below.
MK Studios announced that it’ll bring its Vágar Airport (EKVG) in the e Faroe Islands.
While small, it’s well-known to be very scenic and rather challenging.
It’ll release in the next two weeks for 12.49€ plus applicable VAT and in the screenshots below you can see the now traditional cheeky tease of the CRJ 1000 by Aerosoft.
