Gaya Simulation announce Genoa conversion

GayaSimulation have this morning announced the development of their second X-Plane product, this time a conversion of their Genoa X scenery for ESP platforms.
Genoa X was originally released in 2016 for FSX and Prepar3D and received good reviews from the community. Outlined in a Facebook post, Gaya said they have retained many of the core features from the ESP platform launch, including 180 square km of photoreal ground textures, highly detailed city models (as well as the Morandi Bridge, which tragically collapsed in August 2018, killing 43 people. The bridge will be represented as it was before the collapse).
Genoa XP will also make use of the S.A.M. plugin by Stairport Sceneries to accurately represent jetways, VDGS and hangars around LIMJ.
Here are the key features of GayaSim LIMJ:
- High-resolution photoreal coverage of 187 sq km
- Includes custom models for the city and the harbours of Genoa
- Detailed, accurate and high quality renders Genoa airport (LIMJ), including baked/pre-rendered shadows and realistic transparency of the terminal windows
- Unique, realistic and accurate airport night lighting (runway, taxiways, aprons, surroundings)
- Accurate and realistic ground poly based on photos and satellite images
- Large number of custom objects dedicated for Genoa airport and city-cars, trucks, buses, airport equipment, boats, static aircraft and more
- Helipads at Sheraton Hotel and City Hospital
- Accurate renders of the harbour and many objects along the approach path
- Realistic and accurate ILS offset of 2 degrees
- Animated jetways, VDGS and Hangars (SAM Plugin required)
- 3D volumetric grass between taxiways
- Optimisation for good performance
- Custom mesh for the runway over the sea
- Custom-made realistic static aircraft
- Animated ships
While no release date or price has been mentioned, sources tell us that Genoa XP is closing in on completion.
