TropicalSim Bilbao 2018 Released

193733 Lebb2018 @p3d 1

Recently, TropicalSim has released their latest scenery for FSX and P3D; Bilbao 2018!

Bilbao’s terminals have a sleek design with two symmetrical “wings” and a sharp tip at its center. This design originally granted the airport the name of La Paloma, or “The Dove”. The airport has seen a constant increase in its traffic with the old terminal already being saturated and obsolete. A new terminal was commissioned, and the airport is the most important hub in northern Spain with passenger counts continuing to rise after an increased tourism interest. Many airlines operate out of this airport including Aer Lingus, Air France, EasyJet. Iberia, Lufthansa, SAS, and more!

Features include a highly detailed rendition of Bilbao Airport, full night illumination, recent ground layout changes represented, dynamic lighting for the P3D v4 version, optional SODE jetways, and more. A full feature list can be found below.

This scenery is available from Simmarket for a price of 19.90 euros and is compatible with FSX SP2, Prepar3D v1.2+, v2.2+, v3.0+, and v4.0+.

Orbx Bilbao (LEBB) – More Previews of the Stunning Spanish City

Orbx Bilbao LEBB 40 1140×600


Since we interviewed Marcus for Developer Month about Bilbao, we have been extremely excited to see the product come along in development. Development has been steady for a while, so it’s no surprise to see the previews below showing as much detail as they are. The Spanish city  is known for it’s interesting terrain and harbours so we’re keen to fly our airlines and GA aircraft in there.

Over on the Orbx forums, Marcus gave some more insight into what we can expect from the product when it’s released. As for when that will be, we’re not sure yet, but he did say that the project is moving onto the next phase with beta testing ti commence, followed by night-lighting, cross platform installers and optimisation.

The scenery itself will include the whole city of Bilbao, with around 300,000 – 400,000 hand placed buildings and trees scattered around. This will include the famous Iberdrola skyscraper complete with functional helipad. For heli-pilots, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll also be able to land on some nearby tanker ships situation in the fully modelled harbours. The airport itself will benefit from high-resolution scenery, internal modelling, movable gates and other small details including people, objects and vehicles.  It’s sounding like an incredibly detailed package. You can see that in the previews below!

I’ve left the 20+ preview shots below, and the feature list afterwards.
