FSElite Exclusive: Windsock Simulations Milan Malpensa (LIMC) Previews in X-Plane 11

Windsock Simulations Milan Malpensa Limc 16

Our friends at Windsock Simulations has sent us 20 new previews for their upcoming port of David Rosenfeld’s Milan Malpensa for X-Plane 11. The port of the FSX/P3D version has been in development for quite some time, but Windsock Simulations are slowly reaching the finishing line.

From the screenshots, we can see that the airport will feature a completely custom mesh as well as train and road tunnels just as at the real-world counterpart.

When we spoke to the developers, they confirmed to us that the airport is in early beta with only some Ortho work left to do on the west-side of the airport.

For now, please enjoy the brand new previews. Be sure to follow the team on Facebook to stay up-to-date with their project development.

Windsock Simulations Shares New Previews of Milano Malpensa (LIMC) Conversion for X-Plane 11

Windsock Simulations LIMC 2

Earlier today Windsock Simulations provided some insight for their biggest conversion project yet, Malpensa Airport. Milan’s Malpensa Airport was announced at the beginning of the year and you can find the announcement article here. Touching on the landmarks of the airport, Windsock Simulations also provided several screenshots of their progress. With the completion of the terminals, parking structures, public transport systems, and tunnels, the next step is to begin the integration of SAM Gates (Scenery Animation Manager available here).

This scenery is still a work in progress as there are still buildings to model and much more. Windsock Simulations also noted that Malpensa is being developed upon the idea of using the most detailed mesh as possible as well as ortho imagery. Ortho4XP is not recommended for use with this product when the final product is released as the developers have invested much time and effort into the default look and feel. Windsock Simulation also shared images capturing the progress of their upcoming Cancun, Mexico scenery available here.

This is the latest information regarding the development of this scenery. For more information, you can check out the Windsock Simulation’s Facebook page.
