FSDG Hurghada Previews

HRG 62

Over the past months, FDSG has shared on the FSDevelopers forums progress shots of their upcoming Hurghada Airport (HEGN) and surroundings. The scenery is now mature and almost ready for release. While originally intended for P3D, the developer also confirmed on the forums that the scenery would also be ported to Microsoft Flight Simulator. The scenery features an accurate representation of the airport with high definition ground textures, detailed modeling making use of PBR materials and dynamic lighting. The airport will also feature SODE jetways and VDGS. Most touristic resorts will also be modeled with day and night textures. The overall scenery will sit on a photoreal ground polygon that will blend with the default scenery on the edges.

Hurghada is an important touristic destination of the Red Sea coast in Egypt. It is very popular among European and Russians, who even have their own schools and a Consulate there. The airport itself saw 6 million passengers in 2015, one year after it was completely rebuilt.

Scenery developer Imaginesim has said that they will soon be releasing Atlanta Airport (KATL) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Imaginesim brought the airport to Prepar3D and X-Plane 11 and will soon release the airport product for Microsoft Flight Simulator. According to their latest Facebook post, the airport is “complete” and is going through the release process awaiting on Microsoft to upload it to the in-sim Marketplace. At first, the airport will only be available through the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace and then on the Imaginesim website afterwards. The team are awaiting on their copy protection system to be finished before releasing it outside of the Microsoft ecosystem.

Alongside the news of the impending release of Atlanta, Imaginesim also confirmed the order in which they’ll be bringing their airports over to the new platform. Following on from the release of Atlanta, they will release Singapore Airport (WSSS), Grantly Adams International Airport in Barbados (TBPB), Austin Airport (KAUS), LaGuardia (KLGA), and finally Shanghai Airport (ZSPD).
