New Images of PhotoSim Labs’ St. Croix in MSFS

Photosim Labs St Croix (4)

We’re pleased to bring you a range of new imagery from PhotoSim Labs’ upcoming St. Croix’s airport in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Henry E Rohlsen Airport (TISX) sees a variety of airlines visit the island on a regular basis, with the majority of flights heading to Miami and St Thomas.

The airport itself already appears to be coming along nicely with a good level of detail in the ground textures, plenty of custom building work and also static aircraft. PhotoSim Labs is known for going above and beyond with impeccable details throughout their scenery products and St. Croix looks to be no exception. Beyond the airport area, the previews show the local harbours and industrial areas with a range of objects, cruise ships and other local objects.

PhotoSim Labs has teamed up with a new part-time developer to help them work on the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform to ensure that the project goes well. We can also tease that the team is hard at work on some new projects for the simulator, but we aren’t able to share the details with you just yet.

Finally, we can also share the news that customers of St. Croix on Prepar3D will get $5 off their purchase of the Microsoft Flight Simulator version upon release. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the progress as we hear about it.

FSElite Exclusive: Photosim Labs St. Croix in Development

Stc 025

We were proud to be able to introduce new developer Photosim Labs a few months ago. Since then, he has continued to work on his photoreal scenery projects, but hit a couple of road blocks during the development of Bahamas. The biggest challenge he is currently having is awaiting some work from another developer to complete some work. However, that has meant Bernardo has had time to continue developing future projects. This new project is going to be St. Croix.

St Croix is an island in the US Virgin Islands and was visited by the developer many years ago. As a result, he fell in love with the place and so this is why he was ready to begin developing the island. Whilst development is still in early days, he was happy for us to share some early previews.

The whole island will be completely made from scratch. From custom buildings, ports, vegetation, mesh and more. This will be his biggest project yet! No timeline has been given, but be sure to follow Photosim Labs on Facebook to keep up to date!
