Stairport Greater Moncton Moves into Beta Phase

November 19, 2020

Stairport Sceneries' latest scenery has moved into beta phase for X-Plane 11, the developer has announced.

Greater Moncton first hit news reels in August this year and was initially planned for X-Plane only, though as the developer later revealed, Microsoft Flight Simulator compatibility is also due for the Canadian field.

Taking to Facebook to share the latest on the New Brunswick scenery, the developer wrote the following - "CYQM Greater Moncton is now in Beta for X-Plane, MSFS version will follow afterwards."

The previously X-Plane-exclusive developer announced plans for the new simulator late the same month as Greater Moncton was announced, via a press release which assured users that both Microsoft Flight Simulator and X-Plane 11 will see new Stairport scenery in the short- and long-term.

"In the last 5 years we have realized over 30 projects which was definitely a challenge. But with today's 4 developers, who focus exclusively on X-Plane, we can now be much more relaxed," he said at the time.

"In addition, we now have two full time software developers who are responsible for the further development of our animation tool SAM. Soon we will see great new enhancements that will make X-Plane a bit more realistic again."

Eventually, Stairport plans to serve both simulator platforms with the priority, according to CEO Marten Krull.

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