Orbx’s Indie Dev Marcus Nyberg Provides Big Status Update on Various Projects

We have an update on a range of Marcus' Swedish airports including Stockholm-Arlanda, Malmo and more.

One of Orbx’s most well-known and important indie developers, Marcus Nyberg, has provided a detailed post on the forums about the status of various projects and products. Throughout the post, he speaks about his current Swedish airports which are coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Malmo Airport (ESMS)

Starting with Malmo Airport (ESMS), Marcus says that there is a patch coming very soon for the airport. The patch will include new functional moving jetways, functional VDGS units and new animated airside traffic. Static aircraft have also been removed and there have also been various visual updates throughout the terminal.

Update Changelog

  • Functional moving jetways
  • Functional & correct VDGS units (not in the current screenshots)
  • Some visual updates on the terminal
  • Removed statics at terminal & cargo area
  • Animated airside traffic
  • Some minor bug fixes

Stockholm-Bromma (ESSB)

The next airport in Marcus’ list is Stockholm-Bromma (ESSB). This airport is also getting a patch that will add interiors for the departure and arrival halls, and the old ATC tower. Furthermore, the new patch will add a whole new airport; Frölunda airfield will be included which will serve as a small treat for those wanting a slower experience in the area.

Update Changelog

  • Interiors for departure & arrival halls
  • Interiors added for the old tower, which is still functional in real life as back-up if the new tower would go offline for whatever reason.
  • Animated airside traffic
  • Included Frölunda airfield

Stockholm-Arlanda (ESSA)

Another airport in Stockholm, but this time it’s Stockholm-Arlanda that gets an update. This is an airport currently in development by Marcus and does not currently have an ETA, but it is planned to release at some point this year.

To give us an idea of how things are going, Marcus shared a range of renders on the forums. Furthermore, as this project is ongoing, Marcus invites the community to check out his Facebook page to keep updated. This is also a great place for people to share images and reference material to help create the airport with a high level of detail.

Gothenburg-Landvetter (ESGG)

Marcus has been able to start work on a big update for Gothenburg-Landvetter (ESGG) thanks to new terrain data and references. A new patch is in the works that will add the new terminal pier, high-resolution terrain data, new interior modelling and animated airside traffic. There will also be functional VDGS units, semi-functional jetways and new surrounding buildings.

Update Changelog

  • The new terminal pier open up,
  • New high-res terrain data was added for the airport
  • Interiors for the new terminal pier
  • The hotel (being constructed in the current release) will be included as it has finished now
  • Animated airside traffic
  • Semi-functional moving jetways (all depends on what we can do about the N-jetways, the T-jetways are working ok now)
  • Functional & correct VDGS units.
  • Removed statics in terminal & cargo area

Scandinavian Mountains Airport (ESKS) and Kiruna Airport (ESNQ)

Finally, Marcus concluded in his lengthy post that both of these airports are currently being ported from Prepar3D to Microsoft Flight Simulator. He said in his post that these airports will be “included for free in one of the patches for either Malmo Airport (ESMS)] or [Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport (ESGG)].
