Third-party developers released new screenshots of an upcoming aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator while a relevant airport is coming soon and a city add-on has been released.

We start with new screenshots of the upcoming "Short Regionals" package by Blackbox Simulation, which will include the Shirt 330 and Short 360, on top of the military version, the Short C-23 Sherpa in A, B, and C variants. 

Today we get to see the flight deck and we learn that the developer is working on a functional set of wipers for the windscreen. 

Secondly, SamScene3D released its Bangkok Mega City add-on enriching the capital of Thailand. It's currently available on the official marketplace for both Xbox and PC and on the developer's own store (only for PC) starting at $16.95.

Below you can take a look at a trailer and an official feature list.

  • Over 1200 iconic buildings added to Bangkok city
  • Over 100 buddha temples added to the city
  • Most models with LOD technique that makes fps friendly
  • Most buildings with night lighting effects
  • Many buildings with landable helipad on the roof
  • Includes several iconic bridges, statues, monuments, towers, temples, etc
  • Compatible with other Bangkok airports addons

On top of that, we also hear from V Pilot, which will "soon" release a relevant airport in Costa Rica, Juan Santamaría International Airport (MROC) serving the capital of the country, San José.

This is an important airport in Central America, hosting many scheduled airline flights from all over the world, on top of cargo operations to and from the rest of the Americas. 

At the moment, we don't have a precise release date, but you can check out a single new screenshot below.
