Microsoft Flight Simulator - Cows at Dunedin

Third-party developers released a new airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while also showcasing more upcoming add-ons with a trailer and screenshots.

We start with Xwind Studios, which released Dunedin Airport (NZDN) in New Zealand. It's currently available on iniBuilds' store for $7.54. 

  • Highly detailed, up to date surrounding imagery
  •  Accurate simulation featuring a custom ground polygon with a 2023 layout
  •  Hand-made animated jetways
  •  HD PBR models
  •  Basic terminal and hangar interiors
  •  Accurate model recreation and surrounding scenery placement
  •  Created with peformance in mind

Next is a new trailer of Everett Paine Field (KPAE) in the United States by Drzewiecki Design. Release of this unique airport with its massive Boeing factory should be imminent.

Update: The airport has been indeed released, and you can purchase it on iniBuilds' store and Simmarket for $24.54 plus applicable VAT.

We then hear from Indiafoxtecho, with new images and development updates about two of its upcoming jet fighters, starting with the Eurofighter Typhoon.  

We are have been working with True Grit to reuse their cockpit geometry into our Eurofighter model. We have also been working to port out P3D Avionics code in MSFS, it works amazingly well - but, like we did for the F-35, we will remake/improve the code and the graphics.

No release date planned - but we HOPE that a Beta will be ready sometime in late Autumn.

We also hear about the Tornado. It's worth mentioning that the aircraft will include IDS/ECR and GR.1 external models, the cockpit wll be based on the IDS variant.

...we have finally completed the geometry of the pilot cockpit. It took way more than we planned - as we said we were not happy with the quality of the geometry we had...and we remade it basically from scratch.

It looks way better now. We still hope to have a Beta ready by the end of September, but it will take a lot of work.
