Taxi2Gate release Paris Charles De Gaulle (LFPG)

It’s been 8 years since Aerosoft treated us with their rendition of Paris Charles de Gaulle for FSX. Now that addon is hopelessly old and performance is not something to be very happy about. Therefor you can understand how excited we all got when we heard that one of our favourite addon creators, Taxi2Gate, known for making amazingly detailed and incredibly well performing sceneries such as Munich and Hong Kong, announced they were working on this next big project.

After a missed deadline and another few, small delays, Taxi2Gate have finally released LFPG! Coming to us with custom textures and objects, terminal interior, volumetric grass, SODE jetways and much, much more we can now finally really enjoy taking our planes into Paris again! You can pick up Paris CDG for €26,99 from SimMarket. You can also expect our review on this airport pretty soon, but in the meantime we hope the screenshots below will do!

Orbx announce FTX Auroras

If theres one thing I really miss in all my weather addons that create super realistic effects, clouds and more, its seeing the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Luckily we’re getting some addon developers to create this amazing phenomenon for us. TOGA Projects recently released Envtex which adds this effect to our sims, and now Orbx announced that they are working on it as well! FTX Auroras aims at giving us an even more beautiful experience around the North- and South Pole and the first screenshots look impressive! The project is currently in beta so everything is still subject to change.
