We start with Flightbeam studio, which revealed another look at its Auckland Airport (NZAA) in New Zealand.

We also hear that the airport will enter beta testing this week and we get a rundown of some of the features we can expect.

  • Completely custom approach lighting system. Appears only at night.
  • Custom taxiway lights, with each one modeled with detail.
  • Highly detailed, hand painted PBR textures for every single object/building.
  • 3d Characters in various places
  • and more!

We stay in New Zealand with NZA Simulations, which appears to have figured out how to make the VDGS guidance system for its upcoming Christchurch Airport (NZCH).

“NZA Simulations has been working on interactive features for NZCH – Christchurch. Here is a development preview of our in-house Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS). More advanced NZA scenery features coming to you shortly!
PS. “Stop” is floating for testing purposes, it will be where the clock is.”

Last, but not least, Aerosoft released Komodo Labuan Bajo Airport (WATO) in Indonesia, developed by A-Flight.

You can find it on the publisher’s own store for €14.30 including applicable VAT.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
