“The scenery includes features such as; an accurate and up to date rendition of the apron including the newly relayed taxiways, accurate and up to date 3D objects, PBR Ground textures and some of the surrounding area near to the airport.  Since our previous projects we have begun utilising new software, For example ‘Substance Painter’ and ‘Blender’, We have been changing and improving our workflows and have been better utilising PBR workflows.”
