Singapore is a hotly anticipated scenery from developers Imaginesim right now. It’s been teased for quite a long time and development promises to be coming to a close soon. However, the team today previewed that work continues – but this time, work is taking place to cover the city as well.

Whilst it wasn’t part of the original product, the team are using information from Google Earth to gather the details they need to create an in-sim replica.

The team did assure us that if the city isn’t completed in time for release that it will be added in as a free update in the future to customers. Including the beautiful skyline from Singapore will certainly increase the immersion factor when approaching the airport.
