FSElite Exclusive: Photosim Labs Previews of Bahamas Collection

Photosim Labs Bahamas 12

Almost a year ago, we shared with you the first screenshots of Photosim Labs’ upcoming Bahamas Collection. The scenery package will be split into multiple collections: South Bimini (MYBS) and Cat Cay (MYCC). Afterwards, he will release an additional package containing Chub Cay (MYBC) and Little Whale Cay (MYBX). The solo developer has been working on-off the project, but his time has been spent polishing his skills, learning new techniques and creating a better overall package. He was kind enough to share with us a bunch of new screenshots showcasing his work.

Right now, it’s all due before Thanksgiving, with the next few weeks making sure the product is ready for prime time. He also confirmed that the product will be converted to X-Plane upon completion of the P3D version.

Nuremberg Airport by developer 29Palms and Captain7 may well be one of the best sceneries in my library. Thoughtfully laid out and with a clear attention to detail, 29Palms and Captain7 have captured the essence of this cozy Bavarian airport.

Nuremberg International Airport (EDDN) is located in the heart of Bavaria, and is the second-busiest airport next to Munich Airport (EDDM). Serving over 4.2 million passengers each year, the airport offers flights to European metropolitan and leisure destinations, along with spots in the Mediterranean, Canary Islands, and Egypt. Routes in and out of the airport are numerous, and almost every major European operator has a plane at the airport either seasonally or on a regular route.

Constructed after World War II, the airport opened in 1955. In 1961, the runway was extended to 2300 metres, and then to 2,700 metres in 1968. The latest extension allowed the airport to accommodate large jets, and in 1970 the first Boeing 747 landed at the airport. The airport can accommodate all aircraft, (including wide-body aircraft) except for the Airbus A380.
