  2. Hi all, an update for the SimWorks Studios Zenith is now available on Orbx Central. Changelog: Fixed oversized floats. Fixed ground contact points. Fixed wheel animations. Fixed yoke animations. Added Christmas skin for ski-equipped variant.
  3. We are excited to announce the next project from Finn Hansen: Molde Airport, located in the charming fjord city of Molde, Norway. Following on from Finn's previous Norwegian airports of ENHF Hammerfest, ENNO Notodden, ENAL Alesund and ENTO Sandefjord, Molde is another stunning location which is famed for beautiful views, jazz music and roses, despite the climate. Detailed modelling and high-def PBR textures make this airport a must-have. Finn and the Orbx team also have improved the area with 40sqkm of 50cm ortho to remove the imperfections seen in the current default imagery. Combining all that with custom GSE and real-world liveries on GA statics, Molde Airport will be a fab addition to your Norwegian collection! The airport itself is situated right on the shore of the Moldefjord and the runway is only 3m above sea-level so in times of high seas and tides the water creeps onto the runway edges. The airport is perfectly located for short flights to Trondheim, Sandane and Sogndal or take in some of the regular flights to Bergen, Oslo and Gdansk. At a glance: Detailed depiction of Molde Airport, Norway Complete with PBR textures Crisp photoreal Custom GSE Interior modelling of terminal GA statics matching real-world liveries Selection of POI buildings outside perimeter fence Ground work by Jakub Łukaszewski

  22. We are pleased to announce the next instalment of our successful Microsoft Flight Simulator mesh product line - Himalaya Mesh. Known for its characteristic features of soaring heights, alpine glaciers and jagged peaks, the Himalayas (or Himalaya which is derived from the Sanskrit words of snow abode) is home to the highest mountains in the world. Himalaya Mesh has been carefully blended from 3 different sources resulting in a crisp 10m resolution to give you a truly unique experience in the area. This is also by far our largest in terms of coverage area with an installation size of just over 20GB. Like our other Microsoft Flight Simulator mesh products, Himalaya Mesh is a 100% self-contained product with no changes made to the default mesh or any other files. With virtually no noticeable performance impact, each LOD is consistent without any blurring and minimal LOD morphing when flying over the mountainous terrain of the Himalayan ranges. As always, pictures are worth 1000 words and we have a selection below of the Himalaya Mesh compared with the default currently seen in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Coverage area
