On Facebook, ImagineSim have shown off a new preview of their Ultra HD texture set, made specifically for Prepar3d.
Showing off their latest scenery, Singapore 2017, the team really wanted to show off the detail available with their Ultra HD texture set. In fact, they are so pleased with the results they will texture all of their 3D models in the same level of detail.
Immediate concerns are, of course, VAS. ImagineSim then went on to confirm that the usual HD texture sets will be available for those who won’t be migrating to Prepar3d v4 64 bit.

Already available for FS9 and FSX, ImagineSim have updated San José Airport to be compatible with Prepar3d as well. The airport features custom 3D buildings, high-detail textures, custom (night) lighting, an interactive docking guidance system, taxi- and runway signage and much more. San José can be picked up from the FlightSimStore for AUD$22.45. A free demo is also available.
ImagineSim, after many requests, have updated New Delhi International airport with support for Prepar3d v2 and v3. The Prepar3d version should have significant performance enhancements, according to a post on their Facebook page. Judging by the screenshots, this airport indeed looks very beautiful and is a great destination for long range pilots heading for the capitol of India. The FSX version of VIDP is also getting a performance update. As of the moment of writing the update isn’t available yet, but it will be soon. People who have previously purchased this airport for FSX can download the Prepar3d version free of charge from the website.
ImagineSim have just updated/re-released Austin Bergstrom (KAUS) airport for Prepar3d V3. This marks the fourth airport that has been re-released for Prepar3d V3 in their ‘premium-range’. Austin Bergstrom airport is available for $29,99. If you had already purchased the airport for FSX or Prepar3d V2 you can upgrade completely free of charge. Head over to their website for more information, to purchase it or to download a free demo.
ImagineSim announced a while back that they will go back to their previously released sceneries and update them to be compatible with Prepar3d V3.
LaGuardia. Even saying it gives you a taste of how people from the New York/ tri-state area speak. LaGuardia, little sister to big ol’ JFK, was originally a 105 acre private flying strip named Glenn H. Curtiss Airport after the pioneer Long Island aviator. But over the decades and multiple name changes, the airport rose and expanded into the waterfront of both Flushing Bay and Bowery Bay. Most recently in 2015, a new plan was made to once again and expand the airport, adding new terminals and updating some of the older buildings on the airport. The project is set to be done by 2021, but why wait until then, as the results can now be seen with ImagineSim’s LaGuardia!
So, what do you get out of the box? (Or out of the .zip, should I say?) Well, you get all of LaGuardia airport, not what it looks like right now, but in the updated version of 2021 when the renovations that are currently on-going right now are complete. Once outside the airport, don’t expect much of the surrounding city, but rather just what’s in the airport property lines. As there’s other products out there for your NYC fix, this is good enough for me, as it helps to reduce the number of conflicting issues with scenery and airport. ImagineSim have added some special features to LaGuardia, including custom hand places trees around the airport, custom ground textures and markings, proper airport signage, interiors for all of the gates, and much, much more.
ImagineSim have today released the FSX version of their rendition of New York Laguardia.
“Developed using official architects plans and visualisations, imaginesim can bring the new LaGuardia to you right now. Despite it’s location in New York’s dense built-up environment this airport is accessible to everyone. With the built-in multiple-option configuration tool it is extensively optimizable making it suitable for all types of computer specifications. If you can run FSX then you can use LGA.”
Prepar3d users fear not, as users of the FSX version will be able to download the P3D version free of charge, and should be available soon. If you’re unsure if KLGA will work on your PC, then you can download the demo to test on your system.
Here’s a more detailed feature list for you:
Realistic weathered and worn ground markings and runways
Animated SODE jetways option
Supported by Aerosoft’s AES (next iteration)
Custom building shadows
Stunning night lighting
