Orbx Broome International X-Plane Announcement


Australia comes to X-Plane! In a post made on their forums, Orbx has made the announcement for Broome International airport (YBRM) for the popular platform. As you know, Orbx has been expanding quite a bit into this simulator.

The scenery, which was originally created for FSX and Prepar3D, has been ported over to X-Plane meticulously to make sure all the great details of the original are there. The original was created by Jarrad Marshall, who you might know from sceneries such as Palm Springs and Innsbruck. Jarrad has been assisted by Mac Ottlinger and Chris Vezirgiannis in bringing this scenery to X-Plane, a process that was described as rather passionate by them. Together, they have done a tremendous job at porting the airport and surrounding region to make sure everything you were able to find previously will be present in this X-Plane version. A release date is yet unknown, but Orbx state that they are already deep into testing this airport and making final adjustments. Hopefully this means we don’t have to wait for the scenery too much longer. More screenshots are soon to follow, but for now, you can check out a few previews of the airport down below or head over to the original post to check out all the shots.

Orbx Previews Kiruna and Dala Airports


Orbx has posted some great preview shots of two upcoming airports – Dala Airport (ESSD) and Kiruna Airport (ESNQ).

According to the developer, both airports will be part of an upcoming ‘airport bundle’, and they will have some unique features including snow. Rarely seen in a simulator, Orbx promises the 3D-snow will have very little performance hit, and will add a realistic dimension to the airports.

Kiruna (ESNQ) is an airport located in a small mining town in the north of Sweden, in the wild landscapes of Lappland. The 3D snow will definitely be put to use as you fly in and out of the airport, including flights to Stockholm Arlanda, which sees daily service from Kiruna. Dala Airport (ESSD) is a small, regional airport located in Dalarna, Sweden which sees seasonal charters and scheduled service from AIS Airlines.

While there is no date for release, enjoy the work-in-progress shots of both ESNQ and ESSD below.
