Its been quite some time since we last heard something from Orbx about their scenery for Innsbruck. So you can only imagine how happily surprised we were went just a moment ago we finally got to see something from it again. And it looks amazing. Orbx have put an immense amount of effort into Innsbruck and it is showing. I have never before seen an airport packed with so many details! From the hang gliders club to the apron and the terminal building: everything looks super busy making the airport feel really alive. The surrounding area of the airport that can be spotted in some shots also looks beautiful. We don’t have a release date yet, but here’s to hoping it won’t take much longer! Can’t wait to start making that dreaded turn into LOWI again!

It hasn’t been too long ago since UK2000, known for making amazing British scenery packages, released their Manchester addon.

Let’s find out!
Whoa, calm down there guys! Only a few days after they have released Hamburg, JustSim have announced to be working on Dusseldorf next!

But make sure to follow us to find out as soon as we hear and see more!
Set to release in only 4 days Drzewiecki Designs decided to warm us up a little to their next scenery: Washington DC. As the screenshots will show they have done their absolute best and made this city in true Drzewiecki style: the textures look very crisp, very high quality and it seems like no detail has been spared. Even the commander in chief is probably signing some new executive orders in his office.. Washington DC will come with a number of features. One of the features that stands out most is the way they will include airports into the scenery pack. First of all, it will include a high detailed rendition of KDCA including terminal interiors, SODE jetways, beautiful textures and more. Second, other airports, which will come in a “lite” variant, will be KADW Joint Base Andrews, KCGS College Park Airport, KVKX Potomac Airfield and W32 Washington Executive Airport. These lite airports will feature custom airport buildings with realistic ground poly layers. Also included will be a number of helipads.
FranceVFR make some absolutely amazing area sceneries. And next up from them is Languedoc-Roussillon. This is a Provence in the South of France on the Eastern coast. Some key cities in this area are Perpignon, Béziers and Montpellier. But let me not hold you up with any words. This area is set to release next week so let’s just get right to the previews.
Richer Simulations have released their rendition of St. Kitts island! This island is home to Robert L. Bradshaw airport, formerly known as Golden Rock Airport. It services a certain number of airlines with destinations around the entire world. But the real beauty of this addon is that Richer Simulations have covered the entire island in beautiful photorealistic textures. This makes flying around in some GA aircraft absolutely amazing. Other features include a lot of custom autogen and mesh as well as custom night lighting and textures for the reefs that can be found nearby the island. You can pick up this addon now for only €12,50 from SimMarket.

Oh and did I mention there are 3D birds..?
If the screenshots are anything to go by this airport will look very detailed and amazing! We’ll have a review for you shortly but if you really can’t wait then you can pick up EDDH yourself right now for €19,80 from SimMarket.
There is, arguably, way too little scenery for Asia. For every scenery there is it feels like there are twice as many in Europe and North America. Luckily there are some very talented developers that aim to change that, and one of those is Wing Creation. This developer has created several Japanese airports and so you might know them from famous places like Narita, Fukushima, Nagasaki and a few others.
It went a little under our radar, but Wing Creation is now working on another Japanese airport: Fuji Shizuoka (not to be confused with Fiji, the island group). They have been working on this for a little while now and judging by the screenshots a release is hopefully not too far away anymore. Either way it looks amazing and I can’t wait. Have a look for yourself!
