Aerosoft Discusses MSFS Development, Showcases CRJ

CRJ EDLP 1.png.96c7d22195c07fc22a7ffe4bf3e06aa4

Aerosoft is known to be a close partner to Microsoft for the release of the new Flight Simulator. With Aerosoft providing the physical release of the simulator across Europe, it’s no question that Aerosoft is keen to work with the new simulator when it releases on August 18th. What does remain to be seen is the additional content Aerosoft will be bringing to the simulator via their third-party content offerings. We already discussed how they intend on releasing Trondheim Airport (ENVA) and Paderborn Airport (EDLP) and also the CRJ for the simulator. However,  Mathijs Kok gave a nice update today surrounding the progress being made as well as some previews for the CRJ.

The previews for the Aerosoft CRJ below is very much a work in progress but demonstrates how the SDK enables developers to do lots of interesting things. The team are currently working on a video which will be shared soon of the aircraft in progress. High definition screenshots can be found on the forums.

As mentioned as well, Paderborn Airport (EDLP) is also in development by Jo Erlend Sund made. The airport scenery product will be found in the default sim (assuming all editions). The scenery is detailed and represents what developers can do when creating their airports for the new simulator. You can see the first preview of that airport down below.

A few other immediate questions were answered too. First is that there are no free upgrades from existing products. This is because there is a huge amount of work going into bringing these products to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Prices will be decided closer to release.

It is also reconfirmed that Aerosoft will continue to develop for X-Plane and Prepar3D for as long as customers continue to buy products on those platforms.

[Updated] Flightbeam Announces Denver International for MSFS

FB IMG 1596662191233

Updated 6th August 2020: It is confirmed that Flightbeam will release Denver International Airport on August 18th 2020 to coincide the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator. It was also confirmed that the pricing will be cheaper than the current Prepar3D versions.

Scenery developer Flightbeam has announced that they will be bringing Denver International Airport (KDEN) to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator.

As with other developers announcing products for the simulator, no other details have yet to be shared. However the previews do give off a lot of visual clues about the quality of the product to expect when it does release for the new platform.

Flightbeam is one of the most prolific scenery developers on Prepar3D and FSX (with the occasional dabble in X-Plane 11) and Denver was one of the most highly regarded of their products. What does remain to be seen is how it will compare to the hand-crafted airports included with the base flight simulator.

Denver is situated in central USA and sees a huge number of international and domestic flights to the city airport.

As always stick with FSElite for more previews from the sim in the coming days and weeks as we gear up for a release.
