Its been quite some time since we last heard something from Orbx about their scenery for Innsbruck. So you can only imagine how happily surprised we were went just a moment ago we finally got to see something from it again. And it looks amazing. Orbx have put an immense amount of effort into Innsbruck and it is showing. I have never before seen an airport packed with so many details! From the hang gliders club to the apron and the terminal building: everything looks super busy making the airport feel really alive. The surrounding area of the airport that can be spotted in some shots also looks beautiful. We don’t have a release date yet, but here’s to hoping it won’t take much longer! Can’t wait to start making that dreaded turn into LOWI again!

There is also a new model for Terminal 1 with new geometry and textures and they have added ground vehicles.

Set to release in only 4 days Drzewiecki Designs decided to warm us up a little to their next scenery: Washington DC. As the screenshots will show they have done their absolute best and made this city in true Drzewiecki style: the textures look very crisp, very high quality and it seems like no detail has been spared. Even the commander in chief is probably signing some new executive orders in his office.. Washington DC will come with a number of features. One of the features that stands out most is the way they will include airports into the scenery pack. First of all, it will include a high detailed rendition of KDCA including terminal interiors, SODE jetways, beautiful textures and more. Second, other airports, which will come in a “lite” variant, will be KADW Joint Base Andrews, KCGS College Park Airport, KVKX Potomac Airfield and W32 Washington Executive Airport. These lite airports will feature custom airport buildings with realistic ground poly layers. Also included will be a number of helipads.
