Orbx Releases Graz Airport (LOWG) & Announces Notodden Airport (ENNO) for MSFS

October 14, 2020

Orbx continues to hammer out product after product for Microsoft Flight Simulator with the release of Graz Airport today and the announcement of Notodden Airport yesterday.

Graz Airport is the second-largest city in Austria, developed by Orbx’s Havant team in “ultra-high detail.”

“Featuring its 3000m main runway as well as two grass runways, the airport sees regular traffic to many European destinations such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich and Vienna as well as seasonal charters to the Greek Isles and the Balearics,” writes Orbx.

“The airport, incidentally located in the home town of Microsoft Flight Simulator partner, blackshark.ai, is also a short hop from well-known Orbx destinations like Innsbruck, Rijeka, Belgrade and Samedan.”

Some of the more unusual features include a G-Class Experience Centre with an animated Mercedes SUV being tested and animated advertisement text on the control tower.

  • All-new airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • PBR representation of Graz Airport
  • Unique wing-shaped terminal carefully reproduced
  • Custom sign animations on tower
  • Detailed groundpoly with weather effects
  • 75 sq. km of 30cm custom ortho
  • High detailed static aircraft
  • Includes G-Class Experience Center with animated vehicle
  • Interior modelling of boarding gates
  • Landside features equally detailed

The airport can be purchased through OrbxDirect for AUD $24.99 (approx. US $17.92 | €15.26 | GBP £13.81).

Notodden Airport (ENNO) was the announcement made yesterday through Orbx’s forum.

Developed by Finn Hansen, the Norwegian airport follows in the footsteps of previous releases for MSFS with a step-up from the ESP release.

Textures have been updated, PBR texturing is now “complete”, and there have been many smaller changes and improvements.

The airport is one of just a handful in the world to have a mid-runway crossing like that of Gibraltar, and is ideal for VFR flights.

It is to be released through OrbxDirect and the MSFS in-game Marketplace.

As aforementioned, Orbx has been very busy in the last week alone.

The developer released Berlin Tegel for X-Plane 11 before announcing Göteborg Landvetter for MSFS, with the release of Cityscape Sydney following closely behind.

As always, Threshold will be sure to report on Orbx’s endeavours for MSFS and X-Plane 11.

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