Orbx Malmö Released for Microsoft Flight Simulator

November 22, 2020

Marcus Nyberg has released his latest Microsoft Flight Simulator creation in partnership with Orbx today, with Malmö Airport, in his home nation of Sweden.

Originally created for Prepar3D, Malmö has reportedly been completely overhauled for Asobo's new simulator, beginning with a remake of 'much of' the scenery's texture work and PBR materials.

ESMS becomes Nyberg's second conversion only three months in to Microsoft Flight Simulator's lifespan, having already brought over his Gothenburg Landvetter recreation - a similar level of detail is expected here, according to the developer.

"As to be expected from Marcus, no detail has been spared with the creation of Malmö," they say. "New PBR textures have been implemented, whilst a host of MSFS-native features such as sloped runway, dynamic lighting, custom projected mesh (ground poly) have been included."

"Brand new static aircraft and GSE models custom-designed for ESMS have been included, and a carefully colour-balanced custom aerial image improves the ground quality considerable over the default ortho[-imagery]."

The following feature list was also provided:

  • Exquisitely detailed 4k depiction of ESMS Malmö Airport
  • Ultra-detailed 4K textures with completely overhauled PBR texturing
  • Highly detailed ground poly with custom lines and markings
  • Incredibly detailed 3D modelling, including terminal interiors
  • Beautiful hand-coloured custom aerial imagery
  • New custom static aircraft & GSE unique to Sturup Airport
  • Sloped runway
  • Stunning dynamic night lighting
  • Weather-influenced ground textures
  • Completely AI-compatible
  • Painstakingly optimized for very high performance

Orbx is also expected to release another Microsoft Flight Simulator scenery this week, Newcastle (EGNT), alongside its X-Plane 11 counterpart. The simultaneous release was teased earlier this week - learn more about that here.

Purchase Marcus Nyberg's Malmö Airport for $24.99 AUD (US$18.25 | €15,39 | £13.74) from OrbxDirect here.

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