We were contacted recently by a brand new developer named Bernardo who wanted to let us know he’s been working hard on developing a brand new scenery. He his very interested in the use of photoreal scenery as he believes it makes for the most immersive flight simulator experience possible. However, from what he’s seen so far, he feels that elements could be done better. For example, autogen placement, colourisation and blending.
With this passion in mind, he created his own studio, PhotoSim Labs, and began working on developing some of the islands in the Bahamas. PhotoSim Labs intends to release two different packages during the first release, which will include South Bimini (MYBS) and Cat Cay (MYCC). Afterwards, he will release an additional package containing Chub Cay (MYBC) and Little Whale Cay (MYBX), plus a further bundle which will feature both Big Whale Cay and Great Harbour Cay. This will then cover the entire range of islands.
PhotoSim Labs were kind enough to send us a bunch of exclusive screenshots showing it off to you. For a first time developer, the work looks incredible with lots of attention to detail.
Right now, he’s unsure of a release date, but you can follow his progress on his Facebook page. We’ll continue to follow progress as well. What do you think of his work so far? Tell us in the comments below.
