Famed scenery developer Verticalsim has taken to Facebook to post that their established rendition of Omaha Eppley Field (KOMA) has been updated, making it compatible with X-Plane 12.
Omaha Eppley Airfield is an international airport located outside the city of Omaha, Nebraska, in the United States. The airport, located on the west bank of the Missouri River, is the largest in Nebraska.
The airport dates back to 1925, when Omaha acquired 200 acres of land east of Carter Lake as an addition to a local park. Avid aviators had other plans, however as planes started taking off from and landing on the acquired land nearly instantaneously, a development that even a lawsuit could not put an end to. In 1927 therefore, the city of Omaha formally established the area as the new Municipal Airport.
Today, the airport sees many North American carriers operate across its three runways, including Alaska Airlines with service to Seattle, American Airlines with service to Charlotte and New York, and Sun Country Airlines with seasonal service to Minneapolis/St. Paul, to name but a few.
Verticalsim’s popular rendition of Omaha Eppley Airfield (KOMA) for X-Plane has recently received an update, making it compatible with X-Plane 12 and bringing numerous improvements to the scenery. Among said improvements are, for example, the addition of some new 3D landmarks and buildings, the introduction of 4K UHD textures, the implementation of an updated 2021 ground layout, and color-graded satellite imagery. The update has been made available free of charge and can be downloaded from numerous vendors, including the XP.org store.
