Aerosoft Approaching Dortmund Updated To v1.2

Dortmund (8)

Aerosoft has announced via a forum post that Approaching Dortmund has been updated to v1.2.

Aerosoft Approaching Dortmund covers the entire city and includes a detailed rendition of Dortmund Airport (EDLW.) The release is also popular due to the inclusion of Hengsen-Opherdicken Airfield which when combined with the scenery allows for great VFR flying.  The scenery, available here, now includes new wind turbine models in addition to various other tweaks. The following changes have been made:


  • Functional clock at St. Reinoldikirche (shows the local time)
  • 3-D models of the wind turbines replaced (generator housing with ENERCON typical drop shape)
  • New obstacle light created for wind turbines (with high visibility)
  • Knepper power station removed (was blown up in Feb. 2019)
  • Texture St. Reinoldikirche revised (texture of analog clock incorporated)
  • Two new FX files for St. Reinoldikirche (bell ringing at 12:00 noon)
  • WAV file of St. Reinoldikirche changed
  •  Autogenous type newly assigned for bushes/hedges (had previously remained green in winter)
  •  Number of autofiles optimized (reduced from 566 AGNs to 462 AGNs)
  • Color correction of the Hengsen-Opherdicke summer aerial view (the parking places were slightly greenish)
  • New: Cycling Avatar (male with helmet)
  • New: Vehicle Hummer H3 (with and without PBR material)
  • Wind objects rotate into the wind according to P3Dv4 wind variables
  • wind turbines
  • Wind bags at the clinic and wind bag at Hengsen airfield
  • Wind turbine sewage treatment plant at Hengsen-Opherdicke
  • Special functionality on bike and Hummer H3:
  • the front and rear lights on the bike can be switched on with a mouse click
  • the front headlamps can be switched on with a mouse click on the gear lever in the vehicle (button assignment for landing headlamps))
  • AS Updater included
