Digital Designs has surprised everyone this morning by releasing a new version of their famed Salzburg for Prepar3D v4 and v5. The new update builds on the original version adding new technology, improved texturing and also a more accurate rendition of the real world airport. Salzburg Airport (LOWS) sees plenty of seasonal flights from various European airlines in particular for ski season during the winter months.

The new update incorporates a range of modern technology to bring the airport to today’s standards, including increased texture resolution throughout and improvements to almost all objects to include PBR materials and better detailing. In addition, there is now a range of new static models throughout the airport and also a new interior to Terminal 3 and the air traffic control tower. Furthermore, Digital Design has redesigned the airport to match the state of the current airport layout and its latest changes. Finally, Digital Designs has improved the city center with new landmarks seen previously in the Microsoft Flight Simulator version.

The new version can be purchased for €20.50 from simMarket, but if you previously owned the original version, you can upgrade for €7.50 (excluding VAT). Salzburg v2 will also be made available soon through OrbxDirect.

Flytampa Sydney Msfs (18)

Established scenery developer FlyTampa has announced they are now part of the Orbx Partnership program. This means that specific products will be made available through OrbxDirect and can be installed through Orbx Central. Very soon, Sydney Airport (YSSY) v2 will be available to download through OrbxDirect and also the Microsoft Flight Simulator version of the airport.

Sydney International Airport is the main airport for Australia. Whilst it has seen a downturn in traffic lately, it is the gateway to the country serving plenty of destinations across the country, Asia, North America and beyond. FlyTampa’s Sydney Airport for Prepar3D also includes objects from the city itself seeing as how the airport is just a few miles away from the hustle and bustle. Whilst the airport itself is detailed and brimming with life, the additional nearby surrounding buildings add to the excellent approach to the airport. Whilst the product page is live, the product will be made available for all to download soon.

Alongside the announcement of Sydney Airport V2 for Prepar3D, FlyTampa also shared a handful of preview imagery of the airport in action for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The extensive number of images highlight the work that developers FlyTampa have put into the product and we can see various features to expect upon the product’s release. This includes a range of PBR materials throughout, dynamic lighting, impressive interior modelling and also wet ground effects impacted by the weather in the area. It is also confirmed by Orbx that the scenery product will blend seamlessly with Orbx’s Cityscape Sydney. Again, the product page is already online, but the product is not yet available.

Stay tuned to FSElite as 2021 kicks off with a huge airport release for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
