Uk2000scenery Belfast Xplane 11 (2)

Following on from their news that X-Plane 10 support would be dropped, UK2000 Scenery has announced that Belfast International Xtreme would soon be released on X-Plane 11. The original release for FSX/P3D was a detailed rendition of the Irish airport. Since then, the team has worked on converting it for Laminar Research’s simulator.

The original version featured detailed buildings, accurately placed taxiway markings, airport vehicles and a range of other elements to make it a realistic product. Thanks to the features of X-Plane 11, this version will also include physical based rendering, custom light fx and halos as well as ground routes for the AI.

The product is due for release on February 2nd via the UK2000 Scenery store and will cost £16.99. We’ll be sure to inform you once the product has been released.
