Welcome to Threshold’s weekly news recap for today the 3rd of June, 2018. We aim for this weekly piece to be a collection of all the news that we didn’t get to, as well as where we take a look back at all the headlines from the X-Plane world. The Threshold Weekly News Recap is released every Sunday.

In case you missed it:

FlyJSim publish new screenshots of the 727 v3, UK2000 release Edinburgh Xtreme for X-Plane, AFM debut their latest aircraft; the CitationJet M2, Alabeo release the Cessna 207 Skywagon, Magknight shows off more detailing on his 787 project and NK Design release their first X-Plane scenery; EGKA Shoreham.

Turbulent Designs KMBS

After the release of their second X-Plane scenery last week, Turbulent Designs have released version 1.02 of KMBS.

The update fixes some floating ground vehicles and object visibility issues. You can see the full changelog on the Turbulent Designs Facebook page.

First in-sim screenshots of OMDB by Aviotek Simulations

Aviotek Simulation Software are back in action after a short break from development. The team have celebrated by releasing the first in-sim screenshots of the upcoming Dubai scenery.

Posted on Facebook earlier in the week, the images depict Concourse B at OMDB, as well as custom ground textures and jetways.

“Brick after brick, it takes shape”

JustSim release UUWW v1.2

Russian scenery team JustSim have released a small post-release update to their latest X-Plane scenery - UUWW Vnukovo. The update was so minor that JustSim haven’t even included a changelog!

You can, however, enjoy these screenshots from developer Andrei Bakanov :)

To update to v1.2, simply redownload the package from the store which you purchased it.

GloballArt CYYZ autogen upgrade

Richard Nunes, lead developer at GloballArt has shown off a new package to improve autogen around their CYYZ Toronto-Pearson scenery.

The package consists of new ZL17 orthophotos for the area surrounding YYZ.

These orthophotos are free for anyone to use and can be found on the CYYZ thread on the X-Plane.org forums.

More WIP screenshots from RD Studios at KRAL

Another seemingly regular guest on these Weekly Recaps is Peter Suranyi of RD Studios, who has posted more new preview screenshots of KRAL Riverside.

“Who said T-hangars cannot be exciting? In the upcoming scenery, they are individually numbered, with certain nuances and variety closely following the real world ones. Huh, a lot of work for 'just' T-hangars! But why not, I think the results definitely worth it!”

You can follow progress on KRAL on the X-Plane.org forums, or check out RD’s previous release - KHAF Half-Moon Bay here.


That’s all for this week!

Happy flying - and have a wonderful day!
