Its been quite some time since we last heard something from Orbx about their scenery for Innsbruck. So you can only imagine how happily surprised we were went just a moment ago we finally got to see something from it again. And it looks amazing. Orbx have put an immense amount of effort into Innsbruck and it is showing. I have never before seen an airport packed with so many details! From the hang gliders club to the apron and the terminal building: everything looks super busy making the airport feel really alive. The surrounding area of the airport that can be spotted in some shots also looks beautiful. We don’t have a release date yet, but here’s to hoping it won’t take much longer! Can’t wait to start making that dreaded turn into LOWI again!
JustSim have pushed an update for their Barcelona El Prat airport (LEBL) to SimMarket. This update will include a number of fixes and enhancements to the airport.

There is also a new model for Terminal 1 with new geometry and textures and they have added ground vehicles.
Vidan Design can add another airport to their long list of Danish airports. Billund, Denmarks second largest airport and one of its busiest cargo centres is now available for FSX and P3D. Vidan Design have put a lot of effort into the features for this scenery: there are a lot of custom buildings, vehicles and vegetation, there are photorealistic ground textures, animating traffic, SODE jetways and much more. They have even gone as far as modelling the city of Billund itself! You can pick up this scenery for €15,96 from SimMarket right now, or wait for our review that will come soon!
The busy guys over at JustSim have just released their rendition of Hamburg airport on SimMarket. EDDH is fully compatible with Orbx Germany North and FTX Vector Global, has high resolution textures for both the terrain and objects/buildings, features custom autogen, custom AI AFCADs if you desire and will feature SODE supported jetways after an update that is yet to come. Oh and did I mention there are 3D birds..?
If the screenshots are anything to go by this airport will look very detailed and amazing! We’ll have a review for you shortly but if you really can’t wait then you can pick up EDDH yourself right now for €19,80 from SimMarket.
As we know, Immersive Audio is working hard on making the amazing Dash 8 by Majestic even more amazing. In a Facebook competition last month they announced this new project, but no more information was given at the time. Today they have teased us with a preview of this upcoming sound pack. You can listen to it right here on Dropbox. It sounds amazing and we can’t wait until we can get our hands on it! According to their Facebook post the sound pack is done for about 80% so it shouldn’t be too long anymore either.
I’m sure that many of you are wondering whatever happened to REX Environment Force just as much as we are. It has been pretty quiet around the product for a long time. Only a few updates back in December 2016 were given. These announced the products moving from a development phase to a beta testing phase. But a few hours ago REX finally gave us an update again!
In a small forum post REX announced that Environment Force has gone back to the development phase. They say that they are about 85% done with beta testing, but there are still a few things that need to be changed for both FSX and Prepar3d. Once these things are integrated and tested the product will continue testing before being integrated with its user interface.
