Orbx Sandefjord Airport Released for Microsoft Flight Simulator
January 21, 2021
Considered Oslo's second airport, Sandefjord Airport was announced as Orbx's next Microsoft Flight Simulator project just a week and a half ago, with news coming today that the product has now been released.
Created by Finn Hansen and Jakub Łukaszewski, the pair having previously worked on Notodden Airport - also located in Norway - and Alesund Vigra Airport in the north of the country.
"Torp Airport is a major Norwegian airport, located on the west side of the Oslofjord. It is linked with Oslo Gardermoen airport, serving mostly low-cost and charter carriers flying to destinations across Europe," reads the description.
"Regular visitors include Wizzair, KLM, Ryanair and Widerøe. On site is also the European Helicopter Center: Educating future helicopter pilots, Pilot Flight Academy for fixed wing education, as well as Widerøe and others' maintenance hangars."
A feature list was also provided, which goes as follows:
- Ultra-detailed depiction of Sandefjord Torp Airport, Norway
- Made from the ground up for MSFS using PBR and 4K textures
- Interior modelling and passengers
- Custom PR included
- Unique GSE vehicles, as well as GA statics
- Custom cars on carparks
- Unique terraforming and mountainside modelling
- Carefully optimized for high performance using the latest techniques
A Prepar3D version of the scenery is coming soon as well, according to the release post on the Orbx Forum.
Orbx Sandefjord is now on sale for $22.99 USD (approx. US$17.87 | €14,73 | £13.06) from the group's online web platform.
Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
