UK2000 Scenery Bristol 2019HD for X-Plane Released

Uk2000 Scenery Bristol 2019 Hd (4)

After a slight delay, UK2000 Scenery has released Bristol 2019HD for X-Plane 11. The scenery package brings the Southwest airport to the simulator and is available free to those who purchased the P3D/FSX version, which released last month. The airport has grown in traffic over the past few years with easyJet dominating the airport, along with other airlines such as TUI, Ryanair and Air Lingus all serving multiple destinations.

Bristol 2019HD serves as the next level of scenery development from UK2000 Scenery with improvements to texturing, 3D modelling quality and features. The X-Plane 11 version features many of the same as the P3D, including PBR materials, custom autogen, static vehicles and much more.

As previously mentioned, if you own the FSX/P3D version already, this new version is already in your account free of charge. Those who have yet to purchase can do so by heading to UK2000 Scenery’s website. It will cost you £18.48, but you can get 25% off if you owned V3 of the airport previously.

It will be interesting to see how this version compares to the recently released Pilot Plus version (and subsequent free update).

SAM WorldJetways For X-Plane 11 Released

Sam Worldjetways (2)

Stairport Sceneries has released their Scenery Animation Manager (SAM) WorldJetways for X-Plane 11. WorldJetways places animated jetways in every default airport. They can be commanded either automatically or manually. It requires Scenery Animation Manager 2 to work.

Similar to what SODE for Prepar3D would do, SAM 2 is a library of airport animation objects such as marshallers, Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS) windsocks and from now on, jetways. This improves the immersion of the pilot and creates very lively screenshots for those who like to share their flights. Pilots who would like to know more about SAM 2 can (re)read our article about the recently released version 2.

SAM 2 Worldjetways is available for €16.77 on the Aerosoft Store and requires SAM 2 plugin (freeware). X-Plane users on Mac should be aware that SAM WorldJetways is NOT available on Mac at the moment.
