FSElite Exclusive: MK-Studios Announces Tenerife South V2

Mk Studios Tenerife South 33

We are pleased to announce that MK-Studios will be updating their original Tenerife South airport to version 2 within the next week. Version 2 isn’t just a minor update – it is completely new with a huge set of features all of which have been improved upon from the first release. If you’re an existing customer, this update will be offered to you free of charge when it is released.

The number of changes between version 1 and version 2 is pretty significant. One of the biggest changes is the introduction of brand new satellite imagery for the whole island. The new version features 25cm/ pixel resolution at the airport area, with 50cm/ pixel for everything else. This means that the island can be explored in much great detail than before. In addition, PBR texturing will be included for all taxiways and runways and also the 3D volumetric grass. Other changes include the new terminal construction, improved dynamic lighting, 3D people and denser autogen and custom objects near the airport for improved immersion.

If you’re new to the MK-Studios Tenerife product, then you may be interested in hearing that the product comes with other features as well. Tenerife South from MK-Studios features thousands of custom built objects around the island, a customer AFCAD for accurate operations at the airport and detailed modelling and texturing of the airport as it is today. Furthermore, the airport is fully compatible with SODE and GSX, including the VGDS docking system.

As mentioned, the new update will be free of charge for existing owners of Tenerife South from MK-Studios. The old version is currently not available to purchase as of right now whilst the stores bring the new version online. Once version 2 is released we will let you know.

In terms of other MK-Studios projects, we can also tell you that once Tenerife South V2  is released, Tenerife North will come shortly afterwards. Sadly, at this time, we have no information on Dublin to share at this time.
