FSElite Exclusive: PILOT’S Announces Almeria Airport (LEAM) V2

Almeria Pilots Leam V2 P3d 22

Scenery developers PILOT’S has today announced that they are close to releasing a brand new update for their Almeria Airport. Version 2 of the airport will feature all-new features making it even more detailed than before.

The new version from PILOT’S will bring completely new ground textures and also increase the overall coverage around the airport making the experience more immersive. Along with that, the main airport will feature PBR materials for a realistic effect, as well as new 3D modelling and 3D grass. The new version will also include new dynamic lighting, which is more realistic than before. Finally, the update will feature a new configuration tool as well as an optional HD pack, which increases the level of detail (but this is a separate 8.8GB), but may slow down performance on older PCs. Either way, the new update is more in-depth than the original version.

The update will be coming soon. Update: The update will be released for free by the developer. However if stores/publishers choose to charge for the download (it’s a new 4.4GB file), then that is their discretion and not an instruction from PILOT’S,

You can view a range of exclusive screenshots below. Our friends at AviationLads has also put together a new trailer highlighting some of these features also.
