Microsoft Flight Simulator Lhasa Gonggar

Today a brand new airport and city package for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been released, but the bulk of the news is coming tomorrow. 

SamScene3D released its Tibet Lhasa Gonggar add-on that includes both the Lhasa Gonggar Airport (ZULS) known for its high elevation and plenty of landmarks to enrich the capital city of Tibet. 

It's currently available at the developer's own store for $14.95 and Simmarket for $18.59, with Orbx coming soon. It should also come to the official in-sim marketplace at some point. 

Here's what it promises and a trailer:

  • Detailed ZULS airport terminal with interior
  • Airport with beautiful night effects
  • Detailed Lhasa city center
  • Potala Palace rebuilt
  • 3D models of Jokhang temple, Norbulingka palace, The Barkhor, etc
  • 3D models of the 7 bridges across the Lhasa river
  • 3D model of Lhasa stadium
  • 3D model of Lhasa InterContinental Hotel
  • It is compatible with ORBX Himalaya Asia Mesh

While the past few days have been light on news, the floodgates are opening on Friday,  June 23,m with the first day of FlightSimExpo in Huston. 

Microsoft is going to host a keynote on Friday at 22:00 UTC that will be livestreamed on its Twitch channel, and we're likely going to hear a lot of interesting details. Perhaps they'll even share more about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024

That being said, we aren't expecting news just from Microsoft, as many third-party developers will have relevant reveals and are hosting panels. If you aren't able to attend in person, you can purchase a pass with livestream and recording access to all the panels for $15.

Of course, you can expect full coverage here on TechRaptor as the expo progresses over the weekend.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass. If you'd like to learn more, you should stay tuned on TechRaptor as we have daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news to keep you updated on the many add-ons coming and released for the sim. We have also recently interviewed Microsoft's Jorg Neumann about the Antonov An-225 "Mriya" and iniBuilds' CEO Ubaid Mussa on the work of the popular third-party developer. If you're interested in reviews, you can check out iniBuilds' New York-JFK AirportOrbx's Oslo Gardermoen Airport, and RHDSimulations' Boeing 767-300ER.
