FSDG Releases Rhodes for X-Plane 11

47 1

It’s been a busy week for FSDG, who has just released their Rhodes scenery for X-Plane 11 right after releasing Nairobi Lite for P3D.

The FSDG rendition includes the entire island, as well as the two aeronautical platforms, with Maritsa Airport (LGRD), that only sees military activity, and the main Diagoras International Airport (LGRP). These two airports are just 3 km apart, and the Maritsa Airport lends its runway to automobile and motorbike activities, which is modeled in the FSDG rendition. The island itself uses high resolution aerial imagery and features custom night lighting. Many landmarks of the island have also been included. The scenery uses PBR materials and is compatible with Ortho4XP, in case you use it.

The Diagoras International Airport, named after an Olympic athlete born in Rhodes, handled 4.7 million passengers in 2019. It sees traffic from all Europe, many of them being charter flights from various European countries. The airport bears a single 07/25 runway that is 3.300m long. The facilities can handle aircraft up to the A380.

The FSDG Rhodes for X-Plane 11 is available on the FSDG website for €21. As a reminder for our P3D pilots, the scenery is also available for P3D for €25.

Nearing the release on September 11 (if all goes according to plan), FSDG has shared a few more previews of their upcoming Rhodes (LGRP) scenery. Just two days ago we were able to share the very first preview we’ve seen of the airport itself, after having been teased plenty with the island and surrounding region of the airport. Now FSDG is back with some more previews of the airport, that show off the clear and high definition PBR textures. We can also see some apron clutter, with luggage tractors and carts, GPU units and passenger stairs of different sizes. The previews also shows some aircraft parked on the apron.
