Aerosoft cancels Mega Airport Johannesburg

Post 43 0 84002600 1389163555

In a move that surprised exactly nobody, Mathijs Kok made an announcement on the Aerosoft forums that Mega Airport Johannesburg is cancelled. According to him, Aerosoft does not have and is unable to obtain the necessary imagery to finish this airport up to their standards. Though the project is now officially done for, Mathijs keeps hoping that someone will be able to deliver the required imagery that is needed to finish this airport.

Aerosoft announced Mega Airport Johannesburg back in 2014. After some updates it became very quiet around the project. In early 2016 Mathijs made the announcement that the original developer was not able to complete the airport, but some time later he announced that the project was still ‘in progress’ and made some hints it would be coming in 2016 (which was later changed to ‘hopefully 2017’). In June this year the project was still ongoing and Mathijs made another announcement just in November stating the project was not dead.

Now let’s hope that this is not an indication of what’s going to happen with Brussels airport since we’ve been waiting on that one for quite some time as well.


Thanks to Dean for the tip!

22730417 1442434169186449 3560101315947181301 N


Thorsten Sass, one of the developers on the famous PTA preset ‘Thopat’, made an announcement today on Facebook. The post begins with the announcement of Thopat Preset v2.2. This preset can be used with the Prepar3d Tweak Assistant version 2.6 and Prepar3d v4.1. It is out right now and you can download it from their website.


Moving forward, Thorsten announces that him and Patrick, the other developer on the project, will not be bringing updates to the Thopat Preset in the future. He explains that the Thopat project started out as just a project to make Prepar3d look as realistic as possible, back with PTA v1.1. However, they have now come at a point where the community has caught up with them and what was a fun project before now comes with its share of insults, wrong assertions and other accusations. For this reason they have decided to stop with its development.

The website of for the project will stay online, and luckily you will be able to download the latest versions.
