FSimStudios Edmonton Releasing This Weekend

YEG1

After many posts regarding Edmonton (CYEG), FSimStudios has announced that they will be releasing their latest scenery, Edmonton International Airport this weekend. This scenery is chocked full of exciting features for Canada’s 5th busiest airport.

To kick things off, FSimStudios have stated that it will be “pre-released” on their website. You will be able to pick it up at SimMarket after a few weeks. FSimStudios have been making quite the name for themselves by bringing airports that either need an updated scenery, or just need a scenery in general. Adding Edmonton (CYEG) to the list, this will drastically change those who operate Canadian flights. With a detailed terminal building with the new control tower, the level of detail is incredible. High-resolution textures with PBR Dynamic WetFX which change depending on the weather conditions at the airport. Also included are PBR SnowFX to go along with the 3D snow, snowdrifts, and steam effects. SODE Jetways and Windsocks, as well as dynamic lighting, will be included out of the box. This is the tip of the iceberg of what to expect.

But wait, there is more! FSimStudios have also announced that they are currently working on Calgary V2 CYYC. This will include a fully updated and remake of the airport, Downtown Calgary and will feature high-resolution textures of the Rocky Mountains. Calgary V2 CYYC is expected sometime next year, but no major timeline has been stated as of yet. With the addition of Edmonton and the new Calgary, flights between these two airports will be spectacular!

 

That’s not all either. FSimStudios announced a few weeks ago that they are developing “another Canadian favourite airport. They are hinting that it is 2 more great destinations to fly from Edmonton. There are many major Canadian airports that still have not been covered, or have been covered, but are not optimized for the 64bit platform or are outdated. Please feel free to post guesses in the comments.

Soarfly Concepts Biggin Hill Previews

BILL1

Soarfly Concepts announced about a month ago that their Biggin Hill (EGKB) had entered beta. No other previews had been released until now showing off the small regional airport. Not much information has been released yet regarding this scenery addon, but if you are familiar with Soarfly Concepts’ products, they have stated that “will have all the bells and whistles our regular Flagship scenery has but with the multi-material were all use to now and a few extra treats.” which by the sounds of it, sounds quite nice.

For those who do not know, Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB) is located 12 NM (22 km; 14 mi) south-southeast of Central London. The small airport used to be known as RAF Biggin Hill which a small part of the airfield still retains this designation. The airport first opened for the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) pilots during the First World War. Biggin Hill is also well known for its role during World War II when it was one of the main fighter bases protecting the South-Eastern part of England.
