RIM&Co Confirms Detroit Airport Scenery
In an odd debut for a new scenery, RIM&Co have announced that a rendition of Detroit - a long left-out airport in the flight simulator space - will be coming before the end of April 2020.
The scenery was announced in rather a reverse way, in response to a question about three American Midwest airports from a keen user on the X-Plane.org Forum. Tagging numerous developers who tend to focus on American airports, user "theaviatorO8" asked them to consider making either Detroit, Indianapolis or Milwaukee.
Responding to the thread, head developer Rohan Kuner confirmed that DTW work has begun, though the fan's request had no bearing on the project.
"Hi, Thanks a lot for submitting your airport requests! Recently, I actually started working on Detroit Airport. I can't give you an exact release date, but I guess the package will be ready before April."
"I will also have a look at the other airports and see whether I can make some of them this year."
No images are available as yet, though Threshold will inquire for more details.
Though other developers did reply to the thread, X-Codr Designs politely declined and Verticalsim Studios offered a non-substantial "we'll see" comment.
