Rim and Co Releases Tallahassee KTLH for X-Plane

Scenery developer Rim and Co has released their rendition of Tallahassee airport (KTLH) for X-Plane.
Tallahassee International is located just a few miles away from Tallahassee, the Florida state capital. The airport itself handles just over 800,000 passengers throughout the year by airlines such as American, Delta and Silver Airways. Although technically an international airport, all scheduled departures from the airport are to regional destinations such as Atlanta, Charlotte, Tampa and Washington-national airport.
Rim and Co has created a rendition of Tallahassee airport that includes detailed ground textures which include dynamic PBR along with 4K asphalt texturing. The airport buildings are custom built and placed and finished with textures for both day and night. Accurate vivid lighting is included to enhance night flying. The apron and taxiways are littered with airport vehicles and other traffic, the aprons also include SAM jetways and safe-dock guidance systems for the majority of the gates. The team has chosen to recreate the airport in its current state which includes building work at the end of runway 36, this development does make for a tricky approach to the runway threshold.

63 505d3376c9e880d4a2350ce15667ac0d

Scenery developer Orbx has announced the next chapter in the TrueEarth series for X-Plane, Florida over on their forum. In a separate announcement, Orbx reveals the first airport to release as part of the TrueEarth Florida chapter is Key West.

TrueEarth Florida promises to be the best scenery within the series yet. The development utilises what Orbx has called True Colour Technology to really bring the colour matched scenery to life. TE Florida includes over 8 million accurately placed buildings not just in the major cities such as Tampa and Miami, but rural areas such as the Everglades National Park. The built-up areas benefit from PBR texturing on nearly 1000 bespoke, 3D modelled, points of interest. The release will include both standard and high definition photo scenery compiled from USGS and NAIP covering over 170,000 square kilometres of land and sea.

Orbx has also included details regarding the first airport release for TrueEarth Florida, Key West. Key West is closer to Cuba than Miami, located at the very southern tip of the Florida region. It is home to around 25,000 people as well as being a well-known tourist sunspot. Delta runs flights from Key West to Atlanta using a Boeing 737-700, this is currently the largest aircraft that frequents the moderate 5000ft runway. American Airlines will soon visit with an Airbus A319. Other airlines such as United and Silver Airways operate flights across Florida and the rest of the United States.
