Photosim Labs St. Croix Released


Announced on final last February, Photosim Labs has finally released their United States Virgin Islands St. Croix scenery. The entire island is rendered as well as the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (TISX). The scenery features detailed rendition of many of the island landmarks such as the harbor, oil refinery, resorts, detailed cities. It also has custom night lighting however seems to lack PBR textures. The scenery also uses the trademark Photosim Labs very dense vegetation (read more about it in our review of the Bimini and Cat Cay review), which covers the entire island. The airport also has very detailed modeling in both departure and arrival areas and ground clutter.

The St. Croix Island is part of the US Virgin Islands and is located in the Caribbean Sea. Just like the other US Virgin Islands, St. Croix is a free trade zone. Its economy is based on tourism and on the huge oil refinery that is located only a couple Nm east of the airport. The St. Croix Airport has a single 10,000ft /3,000m runway, but sees mostly air taxi and general aviation traffic. The airport saw about 400,000 passengers in 2019.

The Photosim Labs St. Croix is compatible with all Prepar3D versions, and is currently being ported to Microsoft Flight Simulator. The developer stated on Facebook that purchase of the Prepar3D version would count as a credit for a future purchase of the MSFS version.

The Photosim Labs St. Croix is available on the Photosim Labs website for $25.99
