ImagineSim Ultra HD Textures – More Previews

ImagineSim Ultra HD textures have been given some more previews today and in particular, the team showed off further shots from their upcoming Singapore scenery.

Earlier last month, the team revealed that Singapore would feature their first selection of Ultra HD textures for their scenery as we move into an era of 64-bit sims. As you can see, the detail in the navigation equipment buildings is extremely high and rich.

The team mentioned that there will be an alternate set for those “not migrating to P3D v4 64-bit“.

We’ll be sure to update you with more details over the coming weeks.

ImagineSim Preview Ultra HD Texture – Reiterates Confirmation of Prepar3d V4 64bit

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.

We’ve already posted our rumour findings and then confirmation from Lockheed Martin themselves. This is the first time a developer has publicly confirmed Prepar3d v4 will be 64 bit.

More details will be given soon.

And just in case the Facebook post goes walkies, here’s a screencap.

ImagineSim update New Delhi International (VIDP)

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 LaGuardia (KLGA) Airport: The FSElite Review

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.
