Today Maps2Xplane announced their work on Svalbard4Xplane, a custom base mesh scenery covering the Norwegian archipelago Svalbard (also known under its Dutch name “Spitsbergen”) in the Arctic Ocean. The mesh will feature a very detailed terrain model and a “photoreal look”, even though it’s not an orthographic mesh.

Svalbard4XPlane will be bundled together with an overlay scenery from Maps2Xplane’s partner Stairport Sceneries who they teamed up with for this project. Detailed information will follow within the next few weeks. In the meantime head over to the announcement post here for some nice screenshots. Lookin’ really great so far, look at these glaciers! 😯

When it comes to rotorcraft I am basically a noob so I’m gonna make this one short 😉 Apparently there’s some helicopter called H145 available as freeware. If you know what that is you might get excited to hear that currently a rather extensive update is under development. Head over to the good folks at helisimmer.com here to read more about it!

Aerosphere updated their Piper Archer III to version 2. Improvements over the previous version are improved ground handling, sounds, aircraft handling and improved modeling. You can download the new version for free if already purchased by logging into your x-plane.org store account. See here for two videos of v2 of the aircraft in action. If you haven’t already got this airplane, get it at the x-plane.org store here.

FlightFactor heard the call and implemented wingflex into their upcoming and highly anticipated model of the A320. While I personally don’t care about such visual things outside the VC I do think it is great that FlightFactor listen to their future customers. A good sign indeed. Take a look at the video demonstrating the wingflex effect here.

According to developer Ramzzess the A320 is “getting closer to public beta, a few things to finish only”. Lets just hope this will be the study-level-simulation we are all hoping for!

I am looking for a new web hosting service provider for FlightDeckX as my current provider is rather expensive and has a web space limit of 3GB only. Bluehost was recommended to me and I like their “Plus” package here as it offers unlimited space and bandwith for a reasonable price.

What do you guys think? Is Bluehost a good choice for FlightDeckX? Please leave your opinion in the comments section below. Many thanks for your help!

As announced earlier MSK Productions is actively developing OPKC Jinnah Intl Karachi for X-Plane (see here for the original announcement). Work seems to be quite advanced already and two in-game renders already popped up on MSK’s Facebook page here.

It’s no surprise anymore that I am big fan of exotic destinations. Judging from those renders, Jinnah Intl will be a welcome addition to my personal favorites! Lets hope that we don’t have to wait much longer for this beauty!

If you have a lot of freeware sceneries in your custom library you probably have the NAPS library on your hard drive. This library by NAPS North Atlantic & Pacific Sceneries provides a big number of art assets freeware designers can work with. What you might not know yet is that NAPS have their own website, offering a rather long list of freeware sceneries. NAPS focuses mainly on North American airports but they also have some Belgian airports to offer. If you haven’t seen it already, check out NAPS’ website here.
