Today, third-party developers for Microsoft Flight Simulator has plenty of news to share, including the release of the same airport… twice.
“The exterior and interior models and textures are complete, and we are now busy working through the numerous liveries that will be included, from Air France and American Airlines, to QantasLink and British Airways.
We’ll soon be starting work on the shorter Fokker F70 and full virtual cabin, but in the meantime here are just a handful of the stunning Fokker F100 liveries, with some new cockpit screenshots coming soon.”
And now we get to the fun part. Two different renditions of Girona-Costa Brava Airport (LEGE) in Spain have been released on the same day.
The first is from MK Studios and can be purchased on Orbx Direct for $12.49.
- High-fidelity 3D modelling.
- Full PBR texturing.
- Detailed, true-to-life apron and surrounding areas.
- Current ground layout.
- Vibrant, hand corrected orthoimagery.
- Realistic night lighting.
- Custom DEM mesh.
- Optimized as per Microsoft’s standards for Xbox and PC.
The second rendition, which we saw over the past few days, comes from RDPresets.
It can be purchased on Simmarket for $15.51plus applicable VAT and you can see a trailer below.
Last, but not least, Skyline Simulations announced the recently-opened Scandinavian Mountains Airport (ESKS) in Sweden.
This is definitely an interesting airport, due to its growing popularity as a seasonal destination for various airlines that bring tourists to local ski resorts.
