Today third-party developers had new add-on releases in store for Microsoft Flight Simulator on top of new announcements and reveals.
Pryeegue, which has recently released a few impressive products, announced its roadmap for 2022 so far on the Orbx forums.
Two airports are already in development, Belfast International Airport (EGAA) in Northern Ireland and Aberdeen International Airport (EGPD) in Scotland.
On top of those, the developer also mentioned Inverness Airport (EGPE) in Scotland, but that’s not final and it’s subject to change. Below you can take a look at a couple of screenshots of Belfast.
Next, we move on to releases, with Aeroplane Heaven launching the Grumman F3F-2 “Flying Barrel”.
- All new hi-fidelity models with superb detail including modelled rivets and overlapping panels.
- Beautifully crafted exterior and interior models built over contemporary detailed plans and drawings
- Authentic cockpit detail includes many bespoke animations and effects.
- Full PBR materials and textures include realistic “pillowing” of metal surfaces.
- Animated authentic U.S. military pilot figure
- Specially animated, realistic undercarriage operation.
- Choice of electric or cartridge start.
- Highly accurate flight dynamics and perfomance based on real flight tests.
- Specially authored WWise Hi-Fidelity sound package.
- Unique code to “iron” out poor simulator tail-dragger performance.
The next release is the popular Phuket International Airport (VTSP) in Thailand, released by BDOaviation.
It’s currently available for approximately $18 plus applicable VAT on SimMarket. You can see what it looks like below.
We also get news from the freeware fronts, with WelshSimulations, which released new renders of the flight deck of its Boeing 757-200.
We also get to take a look at the flight deck of another project from the same developer, an Airbus A340-600. WelshSimulations plans to release the aircraft with modified FlyByWire systems with a custom Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)
You can follow both aircraft’s progress on the developer’s Discord server.
Recently, we published our latest interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann and we heard more about Microsoft’s plans for the next few months, including World Update Australia.
