UK2000 Releases Bristol for Microsoft Flight Simulator

September 4, 2020

Bristol seems to be UK2000's testbed in terms of British sceneries, with the Microsoft Flight Simulator version of it - which released today - being their first, alongside being first in their new line of sceneries for Prepar3D and X-Plane 11.

Speaking via Facebook, they say - "This scenery has been redeveloped for MSFS and is NOT a port. Because of this, the scenery takes advantage of all the latest features, e.g. sloped runways, etc. The scenery had also been brought up to date with how the airport looks in real life today."

The developer provided the following feature list:

  • Full detail Buildings
  • Realistic Ground Markings
  • Replacement MSFS airport base image
  • UK Runway markings
  • Use of MSFS Night lights
  • Custom HS Vehicles
  • Good Frame Rates
  • Full set of signs
  • Fencing
  • Airliner Static Aircraft (optional)
  • GA Static Aircraft
  • PBR Materials

"Our new system takes advantage of the sloping terrain technology in MSFS.  we now have sloping runways and airports. No more will we have to put up with flat unrealistic airports. You can  see the undulation in the runway and even experiences changes apron and taxiway slopes."

"The scenery utilises  many of the new MSFS features, including there  airport and approach light models. The MSFS Vegetation system is used where possible to populate the airfield with grass, trees and scrubs."

Users who own Bristol 2019HD for X-Plane 11 or Prepar3D can expect a 50% discount when upgrading to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator version, though it's not clear whether users of the old Xtreme copy of Bristol will get the same treatment.

See the product page on the UK2000 website, where Bristol is available for £18.48 GBP. According to the group's FAQ, BRS will not be published on the Microsoft Marketplace.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
