Imaginesim Release Singapore (WSSS) P3DV4 PBR Update

Press Product Image 04

After weeks of teasing, Imaginesim has released their newest update to their Singapore (WSSS) scenery package. The new update primarily focuses on bringing the PBR technology into the airport package to give a much more realistic effect on the texturing and immersion of the airport.

PBR technology has been included in the airport to enable a better visual representation of the airport, especially with the new switchable dramatic PBR water reflection and shine texturing. This will make puddles and other wet surfaces look much more realistic than ever before.

Other features with the airport include 2K building textures throughout, SODE jetways, accurate AIRAC procedures and also a large number of custom objects in and around the airport. The update also updates the geolocation of the airport within the simulator.

Finally, the feature list mentions an ‘Airport Animator Plugin’. This plugin, once released, will enable brand new airport animation from people, mechanical objects and vehicles. This update will be due soon.

If you already own the product, you can update Imaginesim Singapore through the Imaginesim Operations Center tool, or download it fresh from the store. This update is free of charge. If you don’t own the product already, you can grab it from their store for £25.99. If you use FSX, you can also grab a copy.

FSElite Exclusive: PhotoSim Labs Confirm Development of Cuba Scenery

Cuba Photo Sim Labs

New scenery developer PhotoSim Labs has given us the rights to exclusively reveal that their next project, after the Bahamas, will be the entire island of Cuba.

The complete project will be done in 5 different sections, with 2 airports contained in each. The first section which is being worked on will be “Isla De La Juventud & Pinar del Rio”. Regardless of which pack, they will contain hundreds of custom buildings, custom vegetation, high-quality ground textures and of course, photo real ground and water textures.

Further to the objects, airports and tropical landscaping, PhotoSim Labs will also model the various Russain carriers which sail around the island, as well as be able to take off and land on them.

It’s a project on a grand scale. Don’t expect it any time soon, as development is currently in pre-production with multiple photo shoots currently on-going to gather the source material required to create a detailed project such as this.

Finally, we can confirm this is a project for FSX/P3Dv4, and will also be converted to X-Plane 11.

Once we hear more information regarding PhotoSim Labs and Cuba, we’ll let you know.

In the meantime, you can support PhotoSim Labs by pre-ordering / purchasing a copy of their Bahamas scenery.
