TropicalSim Releases Tirana LATI 2020

224131 Lati2020 Zfsx 13

TropicalSim has released an updated Tirana LATI airport, one of their long standing European destination.

While the general layout of the airport has not changed much since the previous release, this new release takes advantage of the latest modeling techniques and Software Development Kits for Prepar3D. This means that the airport now has realistic 3D lighting, specular maps on glass terminals as well as improved performance. The terminal is represented with many details, and various ground objects are scattered around, improving immersion. Supported by a custom ground texture, the airport blends well in the surrounding landclass.

Following the application for membership into the European Union in 2009, Albania has seen a fair increase of tourism and hopes to develop this branch of the economy, resulting in the almost complete rebuild of the airport. Tirana / LATI remains the only international airport of Albania.

The new release is available for €18 on Simmarket. Previous owner of Tirana by TropicalSim who bought the scenery on Simmarket are entitled to an upgrade price of €10.90. The purchase has to be made with the same account as the previous version.

Feature List
