FSElite Exclusive: PhotoSim Labs Confirm Development of Cuba Scenery

Cuba Photo Sim Labs

New scenery developer PhotoSim Labs has given us the rights to exclusively reveal that their next project, after the Bahamas, will be the entire island of Cuba.

The complete project will be done in 5 different sections, with 2 airports contained in each. The first section which is being worked on will be “Isla De La Juventud & Pinar del Rio”. Regardless of which pack, they will contain hundreds of custom buildings, custom vegetation, high-quality ground textures and of course, photo real ground and water textures.

Further to the objects, airports and tropical landscaping, PhotoSim Labs will also model the various Russain carriers which sail around the island, as well as be able to take off and land on them.

It’s a project on a grand scale. Don’t expect it any time soon, as development is currently in pre-production with multiple photo shoots currently on-going to gather the source material required to create a detailed project such as this.

Finally, we can confirm this is a project for FSX/P3Dv4, and will also be converted to X-Plane 11.

Once we hear more information regarding PhotoSim Labs and Cuba, we’ll let you know.

In the meantime, you can support PhotoSim Labs by pre-ordering / purchasing a copy of their Bahamas scenery.

Almost a year ago, we shared with you the first screenshots of Photosim Labs’ upcoming Bahamas Collection. The scenery package will be split into multiple collections: South Bimini (MYBS) and Cat Cay (MYCC). Afterwards, he will release an additional package containing Chub Cay (MYBC) and Little Whale Cay (MYBX). The solo developer has been working on-off the project, but his time has been spent polishing his skills, learning new techniques and creating a better overall package. He was kind enough to share with us a bunch of new screenshots showcasing his work.

Right now, it’s all due before Thanksgiving, with the next few weeks making sure the product is ready for prime time. He also confirmed that the product will be converted to X-Plane upon completion of the P3D version.
