Today third-party developers revealed new screenshots and released a brand new airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
We get word from IndiaFoxtEcho about the upcoming F-35 Lightning II, showing mostly the beautiful cockpit and a look at carrier operations.
While the external model is an upgrade of the developer’s work for P3D, the cockpit has been remade from scratch. It’ll be released as soon as possible but after Sim Update 6 later this month.
We also get a release from Aerosoft and Iranian developer Homasim, who jointly released Ahvaz International Airport (OIAW) in the middle-Eastern country.
It’s available on Aerosoft’s store for €9.76 including applicable VAT alongside Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport, which had already been released a while ago and we reviewed rather enthusiastically. Homasim’s quality is the real thing.
- High quality models of all major buildings and hangars
- 4k and 2k textures and PBR materials for quality and performance
- Includes city landmarks including iconic White Bridge and Eighth Bridge
- Complete re-work of air-side with custom ground vehicles
- Static and non-static aircraft versions included
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).
