Hi all, The past month has been pretty rough, hope everyone is staying safe! Since we're all cooped up indoors and playing flight sims, I thought I'd take some time to finish up the Californian Channel Islands that never made it into the first version of Santa Barbara, so that you all have somewhere new to explore This update adds over 700 square kilometers of new coverage to KSBA, more than doubling the original coverage area. It also adds 3 lite airstrips for you to land at. These airstrips are super fun and challenging to fly into, and are a nice short flight away from KSBA. Alternatively, you can load your flight at CA97 Cristy Airstrip, but the other two, you'll have to go and find them! This will be released in the next couple of days. For all that have purchased KSBA already, hope this gives you something new and interesting to explore! For those that haven't, KSBA is still on discount until the 12th April, so make sure you don't miss out and pick up a copy here: orbxdirect.com/product/ksba The update will be free for all customers, so as long as you have the product you'll be able to get it COVERAGE MAP SCREENSHOTS Cheers, Misha

Hi everyone, After far too long, I am very proud to finally (re)introduce to you all my absolute largest project to date, KSBA Santa Barbara Municipal Airport for P3D and FSX! I've taken the last few months during my travels and student exchange in the United States to complete this incredibly scenic and unique destination just up the coast from Los Angeles in FTX Southern California. This is also the tenth Orbx airport product that I have directly worked on, so it's quite a milestone for me. KSBA is surrounded on all sides by beautiful approaches, with the beach and shore immediately to the south, and the mountains to the north posing a bit of an challenge . The unique architectural style of the terminal really makes this airport pop, as you will see below, with various artwork and designs all faithfully recreated in this addon. KSBA is a short flight from other Orbx airports like L70 Agua Dulce and KPSP Palm Springs, as well as a short airliner flight down the coast from KSTS Sonoma County and KTVL Lake Tahoe further inland. KSBA is served by 5 airlines on a regular basis by CRJ's, 737's, A320's and more, and is the perfect combination of airline and GA destination. With its main 6000ft runway and two 4200ft GA runways, this airport caters to pretty much whatever your favourite type of flying is. As usual, I've spend a long time tweaking the performance and making sure that it runs with as little impact as possible, so everyone can have a great experience no matter what they fly. Aside from the high detail airport, I have also included a HUGE area of 500sq km of fully annotated and detailed scenery around the airport, covering the entire city of Santa Barbara, Goleta, and the stunning mountain range that can be seen from the airport and city. You certainly won't run out of things to explore here! Stay tuned for updates over the next week on this - it's very close to complete FEATURES - Ultra-detailed rendition of KSBA Santa Barbara Municipal Airport - HUGE 500km2 coverage area at 30cm/60cm /1m - Beautiful rendition of the terminal, including interior modelling for maximum depth - Additional "lite" landing area - 0CA3 Crawford Airport - Custom vegetation and trees native to area - Advanced rendering, ambient occlusion and night-lighting methods used for maximum realism - Plenty of VFR landmarks and POIs to explore including schools, shops, factories, custom bridges and others. - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow and more included - Extensive control panel with options for alternative APX/AI configurations - Strongly optimized for good performance with complex aircraft types Please note that KSBA Santa Barbara is designed to blend seamlessly with FTX NA Southern California for P3D/FSX - can also be used with FTX Global Base only, but may contain a few small anomalies KSBA will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for AUD $39.95 (approx. USD $28.60 / €24.75 / £21.75) COVERAGE AREA Enjoy the previews Cheers, Misha
