FSDreamTeam Announces Beijing Daxing Airport (ZBAD) for Prepar3D

Bejing Daxing Airport (ZBAD) P3d

Scenery developer FSDreamTeam has today announced that their next airport project is going to be Beijing Daxing Airport (ZBAD). The Chinese airport opened only a few weeks ago in real-life and is the capital’s second international airport. Currently, a variety of airlines operate into the airport with the primary airline being China United Airlines.

With the airport’s non-existence in Prepar3D, FSDreamTeam is proposing a two-step approach to release the product to the community. In an attempt to release it in a timely fashion to the community, FSDreamTeam will first release Beijing Daxing Airport (ZBAD) for a low price with lesser detail. In terms of what to expect, the team said it will be “better than freeware” as they intend to include full PBR custom textures, SODE jetways, GSX profiles and also full approach procedures. The estimated cost for this first-step version will be “like 10$ or so.” It is intended to release ‘hopefully’ by the end of the year.

Following on from that initial step-one release, a second version will be released during 2020 for the simulators which will be the most popular at that time.” This version will contain all the details you come to expect from an FSDreamTeam product, similar to that of KORDv2. As for pricing, the team said it will also be comparable to the aforementioned airport product.

It is also confirmed that those who purchase the product during the initial step-one release will receive the same price discount off of the final version upon release.

Finally, the post came with a render of the airport’s main terminal area.

GSX Seasonal Clothing Update

GSX will receive a free update this weekend, adding seasonal clothing.  With a short YouTube clip, FSDreamTeam is previewing this newest update, showing the parking marshaller in different kind of weather conditions.

Previously, marshallers were always wearing the same clothes, regardless of the weather. After the update, there are several variations available for the clothes and high visibility jackets. In the preview, short sleeve shirts, heavy high-vis coats, gloves, shorts and tank-tops all make an appearance, though it is unclear if there are more variations. Furthermore, the trailer shows a slight layer of snow on both the marshaller and the clothes during snowy winter operations. If the weather conditions will also apply to other figures in GSX, such as the pushback walker or baggage loaders, is yet unknown. You can find some screenshots taken from the video below.

A full changelog for the upcoming GSX 2.7 update is not yet available.
