SimCoders Releases Reality Expansion Pack for the Thranda Kodiak Quest


X-Plane developer SimCoders has released their Reality Expansion pack for the Thranda Kodiak Quest. SimCoders are renowned for their various improvement packages (see in example their previously released add-ons for the Carenado PC-12 or for the Carenado B58).

The Thranda Kodiak Quest Reality Expansion Pack is available from the Store for $19.99. The original Thranda Kodiak Quest, released in November 2019, is required and is also available on the Store for $39.99.
