Microsoft Flight Simulator A32NX Airbus A320 Shows Updates in New Videos; Frankfurt Airport Announced; Renton Gets New Screenshots & More

Today third-party developers provided new assets and information about their add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Today third-party developers provided new assets and information about their add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

We start with another look at the updates for the increasingly-complex and impressive freeware A32NX Airbus A320 Neo add-on by FlyByWire.

Three videos showcase changes made to the Autothrust, the Flare Mode, and the Autoland mode, with an accompanying blog post that extensively explains what has been done and why.

I suggest reading it in its entirety if you’d like an in-depth look at these systems. It’s really interesting.

Next, Feelthere announced Frankfurt Airport (EDDF) in Germany. No images or information about the scenery have been shared so we’ll have to wait and see whether it’s any good.

For the record, the image at the top of the post is not representative of Feelthere’s scenery. It’s the airport included in the simulator with a freeware enhancement mod. I flew from there yesterday, so I thought I may as well use the picture.

We then take a brand new look at Impulse SimulationsCoffs Harbour Airport (YCFS) in Australia. On top of that, we also get a release date. It’s going to be out on February 18.

Here’s a list of official features:

  • 20cm High Quality Aerial Data for Key Areas
  • ~100sq km of 50cm coverage for surrounding areas.
  • 10,000+ Hand-Places assets
  • 50+ Custom Assets
  • Replicated Terminal Interior
  • Replicated Control Tower Interior
  • Realistic Night Lighting
  • Realistic Ground / Apron Texturing
  • Custom Taxiway Decals and Markings
  • Full PBR Texturing
  • Custom Animations
  • Improved Vegetation & Grass Compatible with Sim Update 7
  • Detailed Static Aircraft
  • Custom 1M DEM Data
  • Custom Marina Modelling
  • Custom Ground Services

Apologies for the temporary use of imgur galleries. Our gallery feature is temporarily broken due to a software transition and we’ll revert to that as soon as possible.

More screenshots come from Drzewiecki Design, which shared new images of its progress made on the Boeing factory attached to Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT) in the United States.

Impressively, the developer seems to be hinting that the assembly line will be animated, which would be pretty crazy.

Last, but not least, Simulación Extrema is working on a remake of its Usuhaia Airport (SAWH) in Argentina.

While this new version will be released as a new package on both PC and Xbox, existing customers will still get it at no additional cost.

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.
