Airworthy Designs have been working hard throughout the Christmas break on their Princess of the Caribbean series for X-Plane. The first part of the series was released back in April to mixed fanfare, due to large performance issues which have now been patched.

The aforementioned Part One scenery package has received a small update bringing it up to version 1.7. To update, simply re-download the scenery from the store of purchase. The changelog is available below:

  • fixed compatibility issues with latest xplane version 11.30r3


  • reduced 3d trees geometry
  • added apron lights backspill
  • tweaked night lights for an increase in performance
  • fixed weird normals at certain light angles for the lake near Maho B.
  • downgraded resolution to hand painted orthos but added decals to preserve details


  • downgraded hand painted orthos (2k from 4k)
  • upscaled runway textures (back to 4k)

Clayton J. Lloyd Int'l (TQPF), located on Anguilla, a British Overseas Territory - currently AWD are working on new auto-gen for the island.

Part Two will contain the airports of Saba and St. Barths, both of which are notorious amongst aviation fans for their hard approaches. AWD have been sprinkling previews of the new St. Barths scenery since late December, with further screenshots released today.

The new previews were released on their Facebook page a few hours ago.
