Following on from the announcement of Palma De Mallorca coming from Just Flight for Microsoft Flight Simulator, the development team has shared off a few new previews and provided a brief development update on the project. After a short break over the holiday period, the team are back to work on creating the airport scenery for the new simulator.

The focus this time is on the glass structure which makes up Terminal C at Palma De Mallorca International Airport (LEPA). The newly developed area of the airport is still a work-in-progress, but the team are “confident this is a good re-creation of the real-world counterpart.” We can see there is already a good level of detail for the exterior shots (including PBR materials) and also the interior modelling. In the development update, Just Flight also added that the radar at the top of the tower will be fully animated and that the first few objects to be sat on the apron are also coming together.

Whilst this development update focuses on Terminal C, Just Flight also mentioned that the newly renovated northern runway (24R/06L) will also be made for the scenery, including the new taxiway layout. The team has access to the charts and aerial photography to ensure that the airport layout is accurate for the product release.
