Third-party developers and Microsoft itself released new add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator and showcased assets of another airport.
We start with Microsoft itself, which launched City Update 3 - Texas. The update, which you need to download directly from the official marketplace and is completely free, comes with photogrammetry for Abilene, Austin, Cedar Park, San Antonio, Schertz, Temple, and Waco. It also comes with a rather colorful easter egg. You can check out the trailer below.
Another release comes as a collaboration between Amsim and Beautiful Model of the World. It's Colorado Springs Airport (KCOS) in the United States. It's available on Orbx Direct for $16.53.
- Correct airport slope
- Animated Jetway
- Custom ground markings
- High-resolution custom ground textures, dirt and other details
- Surrounding buildings fully modeled

Last, but not least, Pacific Island Simulations released new screenshots of the upcoming Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) in the US. According to the developer, a release this weekend is possible.
