FSX/P3D. Not sure how I missed these but 3 shots posted last month of the MK Studios Naples shows the most detailed imagery of the scenery yet and quite frankly they are not bad! Not sure how the other projects from MK are shaping up but indeed this project is coming out nicely. Very curiously about night lighting. We are keeping an eye on it!
FSX/P3D. The Polish team has done it! In comparison to their Moscow and NYC city sceneries, Washington is their best yet including numerous landmarks, helipads, airports, and more! Sprawling across a massive coverage area and highly detailed rendition of Reagan National, we haven't seen anything this big since FlyTampa's Dubai! We are planning for livestream, but in the meantime you can grab the scenery for about $32 bucks. Thanks to several readers for the tipoff. Enjoy your new toys for the weekend!
FSX/P3D. And just in time for Lego Batman! Coincidence anyone? I have been preaching for years that Vidan Design is an impressive developer that really pays close attention to detail and really puts all of his efforts into his works which is why I have been also been preaching that it's about time he delivers something bigger in scale and he has done it! It has taken him quite some time while also releasing other projects in the background but nonetheless this is quite a feat for the Danish developer. Billund is now available and for the livestream, I will also be looking at some of his older works and giving viewers a little of a tour leading up to this masterpiece. Stay tuned for details. For now, go grab it and thanks to AG & Morten Eriksen for the tipoff!

FSX/P3D. Aeroplane Heaven is adding another aircraft to the queue. The interesting thing about this team is their releases can really be hit & miss with mixed reactions at best with some of their releases. That said however, I think mostly everyone will agree AP's WW2 war birds are always the best offerings from this team. The Corsair was a pretty solid release and I think the upcoming Helldriver will follow in that regard. The first renders are here, have a look!
FSX/P3D. It's an incredible scenery and in cased you missed it, check our YouTube page for the livestream archive. CieloSim has released the update 1.1 earlier this month addressing all of the issues pointed out in our preview such as: AFCAD (dirt effect), AFCAD (runway numbers), Terminal (GAP, flipped sign, AFCAD (gate issue), Animated jetways, Flickering jetways, Night directional signs not seen when taxing, VAS texture size fix, Internal model fix, Runway markings on taxiway M3.

FSX/P3D. Over in the French Forum Pilote-Virtuel, I person is introducing his team which he says is called: NewDimensions and the first first product to market from this teal will be a new weather system called SimClouds for FSX and P3D. He goes on to say the product has been in development for a year and will be the first time for a program to break the FSX/P3D weather limitations. Now this is translated from French but here is the gist of it:
"The program is expected to have completely new cloud models and textures with true thickness and color depiction for each variant of clouds depending on their density which is over 300 models & 3000 textures. Many errors have been corrected (what errors?) to bring you an exceptional visual experience with "unbelievable performance" even in dense weather situations. Say goodbye to the actual weather rendition!
New clouds for FSX/P3D never seen before such as Nimbostratus, Stratocumulus, Altostratus, AltoCumulus, Cirrostratus and Cirrocumulus, all variants of Cirrus and of course Cumulonimbus and it's terrific supercells ! We also have represented precipitation wall from below the Clouds.
Complete new moon effect at dawn, dusk and night. Never seen before in FSX/P3D. One analyzing engine to analyze the current weather to adapt the correct models and textures based on different settings ( Humidity, temperature etc... But also region of the world ) and will automatically update the models and textures throughout your flight. This engine will be fully compatible with all existing weather engines! Much more to be added in the coming week, after we start the beta testing. This product will be payware and We expect a price of around 25 Euros. Stay tuned for the complete list of features and I let you now discover only a few samples, there is a lot of competition! Screens taken from P3Dv3 without HDR."
No website as yet the link below is all we have for now. Thanks to ADX reader Stephane Tasso for the tip and translation. More info via the source link.
FSX/P3D. Taxi2Gate created the airport and Richer Simulations has done the rest. No word if the PR coverage is compatible with the T2G scenery however I'll assume the developer will stop by and leave a comment if it is. Scenery features include: 261 square km of photoreal covereage, 0.5m/px to 30cm/px photoreal terrain resolution, Custom 19m mesh, Over 450,000 custom autogen shrubs, trees, buildings and lights, Advanced Night illumination: building windows and street lights, Surrounding reef textures ,Road traffic, Scenery Configuration manager. You can grab it for $14 bucks.
FSX/P3D. Are you a fan of LatinVFR's San Juan airport scenery? If you are, and familiar with the runway 10 approach, you may have noticed a little airfield off to your right while on final. That'sIsla Grande Airport. The scenery has been developed to fully work with and enhance the LatinVFR scenery. Price is $22 bucks you can grab it via the source link below. Congrats to PhotoRico on another release!
FSX/P3D. Honestly I have completely lost interest in in FranceVFR and their products. The airports are the same quality as they were 10 years ago and given that Orbx has basically stampeded all over Europe with Global, OpenLC, and upcoming full regions. Now you may say FVFR products may have greater accuracy, but consider this: you have to purchase each one of these sceneries separately that only cover regions in France for 15-35 euro a piece plus VAT (for EU folks) whereas with Orbx you still get a stunning landscape that covers all of Europe. It's just hard to justify FranceVFR anymore. But I know many of you still feel differently so here it is> More shots via the source link.
