Aerosoft announced the development of Cologne Bonn (Köln/Bonn) EDDK Airport back in October 2017 and they’ve since been releasing eye-candy development previews and updates for us over on the forum thread. Along with the previews, the developer, Jo Erlend, has mentioned that we are to expect some more news regarding the scenery this week.
In the previews, you notice the attention paid to the immense level of detail on the ramp, objects, terminal and ground markings. There even are 3D characters featured inside of the detailed terminal interior.
Going back through the thread, there’s mention from Jo Erlend that the Prepar3D v4 version will be released before Cologne is brought to older platforms such as FSX and Prepar3D v3 as it will need to be reworked due to being beyond the scope of any 32bit platform’s memory capacities. While this scenery is obviously being developed with P3D v4 specifically in mind, X-Plane users shouldn’t worry as Cologne Airport will be ported over to the platform in the near future as it was mentioned on the thread by Aerosoft’s Product Manager, Jan Depenbusch.
As for now, development work is full steam ahead on Cologne (Köln/Bonn) so we can only wait and see what happens in the coming few weeks.
