Emerald Scenery Design Solomon Islands X V0.57 Update Now Ready

Developer Emerald Scenery Design has updated their Solomon Islands X package to version 0.57. Despite having been a project in the works for over 5 years, the team has made a lot of progress over the years. This update brings improvements to the island landscaping, additional roads, houses and other objects and bug fixes throughout.

Many improvements have been made near both Gizo (AGGN) and Munda (AGGM) airports, with reworked terrain and additional objects scattered throughout.

The developers said that as 2019 continues, we’ll see a bunch of new updates further enhancing the product.
