Third-party developers have provided new assets and reveals about upcoming add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
As you can see, a lot of work has been done to improve the 3D mesh of the fuselage, which looks quite impressive.
Last, but not least, UK2000 Scenery announced that in 2022 it’s going to focus on American airports, starting with John Wayne Airport (KSNA) serving Orange County and Santa Ana in California, US.
The airport is coming soon and below you can read an introduction and watch a trailer.
“KSNA John Wayne airport is a commercial and general aviation airport that serves Orange County, California, and the Greater Los Angeles area. This was also the airport where Harrison Ford landed his piper cub on the parallel taxing, not 20L (and we can see why!).
This airport represents a leap forward in improved HD PBR materials and Level of Detail for UK2000. Hundreds of custom-made models and images accurately designed and placed, but more importantly done in an efficient fast performance way, so you don’t end up with GBs of data slowing your PC down. It includes line markings with ‘black’ borders, just like must US airports have (ASOBO take note!).
We’ve remodeled my GA aircraft library collection to have more details with PBR materials, plus new models like the C172, SR22, P51, and B-17 for the museum. There are hundreds of GA light aircraft placed around the airport, just like the real airport.(will not clash with AI, so you get both) It also has many open hangars that you can start your flight from, complete with internal details.
The airside terminal is modeled with internal details, including passengers, seats, plants, vending machines and fast food outlets. There a 21 unique animated Jetways with high PBR details to dock with your aircraft with, plus other animated models.”
