An average week in X-Plane, recapped

We had a reasonable week of X-Plane development news all things considered, a few new releases, a couple of announcements and as always, previews of upcoming products.

We started off the week well with news of JustSim finally releasing EBBR Brussels for Laminar’s sim. The news follows the release of EBBR for Prepar3D just over 3 weeks ago. You can purchase the scenery for $25.60 from the store.

ShortFinal Design gave a good boost to the mid-week morale with more previews of Munich, his latest project.This time, we learn more about rain effects and about the animated trains that will circle EDDM. See more in the full article.

Going into Thursday, Carenadoreleased the S550 Citation II. The Citation II includes custom PBR, realistic flight model and support for the RealityXP GTN 750. You can purchase it through their website.

Towards the end of the week Orbx released their first English airport for X-Plane: Southhampton (EGHI). This follows the release of the smash hit TrueEarth GB South. It is available from OrbxDirect for $32.95 AUD.

GayaSimulation announced intentions to bring Genoa to X-Plane on Saturday, following the announcement of Brussels last month.It will feature a full rendition of the airport and surrounding city, including the Morandi Bridge in its pre-collapse state. Check out more in the full article.

Lastly for this week, UK2000 have released Guernsey Xtreme XP. This scenery is the latest entry in UK2000’s conversion scheme, following the release of Liverpool earlier in the year.
