Microsoft Flight Simulator Concorde & Osaka Kansai Airport Get New Screenshots; Astoria, Sønderborg, & Comodoro Rivadavia Released

Today third-party developers released new add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, on top of sharing new reveals about additional ones.

Today third-party developers released new add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, on top of sharing new reveals about additional ones.

Like every Friday, we hear from DC Designs, which shared a development update and new screenshots of its upcoming Concorde.

“The good news is that CodenameJack continues to perform truly epic work on Concorde. The sheer volume of inter-connecting systems is now quite amazing ( although you won’t have to learn them all in order to fly Concorde, if you do not wish to ). With so much work being done the schedule for Concorde is changing slightly, but despite me missing a few days due to illness the project is still on target.

Work next week will start to shift toward improving the exterior model in terms of detail and texturing. I did manage to start on Concorde’s proper PBR finish this week, adding in the ambient occlusion maps and a more accurate finish overall, but weathering and more detail modelling are still to come. Interactive points for refuel trucks, loading and GPU all need to be added, and I need to be certain that the correct exit functions are operating so that Concorde can connect to gates when required.”

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.

Next comes Technobrain, which provided an update on its much-anticipated and massive Osaka Kansai International Airport (RJBB) in Japan. 

This time around we get to see a lot of new screenshots and a list of features:

  • Extremely realistic airport
  • Custom taxiway signs and ground markings
  • Custom jetway
  • Excellent night techniques, realistic runway lighting according to official documents of the airport
  • Pseudo shadows
  • Dynamic lighting
  • PBR Materials
  • Add landmark buildings
  • Frame rates friendly

Moving on to releases, Skyline Simulations launched Astoria Regional Airport (KAST) in Oregon, United States.

It’s currently available on SimMarket for approximately $21 plus applicable VAT.

Below you can check out what it looks like.

The next two airports have been released exclusively on the official Microsoft Flight Simulator marketplace, so you’ll have to seek them out on your own in the game. Usually, searching for their ICAO code is effective.

Both airports are available for PC and Xbox.

 Simulación Extrema released General Enrique Mosconi International Airport (SAVC) in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina.

The price is $13.99, and you can find a gallery below.

We then go to Denmark with Sønderborg Airport (EKSB) in Denmark released by Simnord.

This one is priced at $14.99 and on top of the airport, it includes three famous local landmarks, Dybbøl Mill, Alssund Bridge, and Sønderborg Castle.

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.
