    Orbx Confirmed Visby Airport (ESSV) for Swedish Bundle
    Back in May, Orbx developer Marcus Nyberg shared that he was working on a Sweedish bundle, which would include Kiruna (ESNQ) and Dala Airport (ESSD). Just a week or so ago, Marcus took to the forums again to hint that there was still a surprise waiting to be revealed. That surprise was confirmed today to be that Visby Airport (ESSV) will be part of the complete package, which is due out very soon. Along with that, Orbx Marketing Manager, Aimee, gave some more details about the airports to come in the bundle.
    About Visby Airport
    Visba is a busy airport which sees a range of types of airliners and aircraft visit. From military operations to the commercial terminals ‚Äď there‚Äôs a lot going on. Marcus is said to have spent a lot of time creating a realistic rendition of the airport by also including a huge range of objects around the airport, the city of Visby and nearby harbours and small towns.

    After stating earlier this week that the recent work has been all coding and that there‚Äôs ‚Äėnothing to show [sic]‚Äô, Milvis has surprised us with some more in-dev screenshots of their upcoming ATR 42 aircraft.
    The screenshots came directly from their facebook page, showcasing the turboprop sporting Silver Airways’ new livery. Neither a price nor release date has been set, yet, so stay tuned for those.

    FSDreamTeam Issue GSX Level 2 Update to Fix Blurry Texture Bug
    by Calum Martin on 16th September 2018 20 comments FSXNewsP3D   facebook Twitter Reddit The release of GSX Level 2 last week has seen the flight sim community take plenty of screenshots of their new in-sim avatars walk along the apron into the virtual buses or down the SODE jetway to be greeted by the new cabin crew. However, the software itself had been reported by a fair few forum users about how their sim become a bit of a blurry mess after installing GSX Level 2. Although originally dismissed by the developer as they couldn’t recreate it, after more proof was submitted by the community, FSDreamTeam were able to investigate the issues more thoroughly.
    With this in mind, the team were quick to release a statement¬†and a fix via their FSDT Live Updater tool. In their statement on Facebook, the team said:¬†‚ÄúWe found the cause for blurred textures when using GSX Level 2 with many scenery add-ons installed (especially global vector/landclass), and it was caused by a bug.‚Ä̬†They continued by saying that users should use the FSDT Live Updater to install the new fix to ensure it no longer impacts their simulator.
    You can buy GSX Level 2 now from their store for $29.00. Don’t forget, you’ll need to already own the original GSX for GSX Level 2 to function. We’ll shortly be publishing a review of GSX Level 2, so stay tuned to FSElite for that. You can watch our first look video above in the mean time.

    A rather small update to an older scenery, Drzewiecki Design’s EPKK Krakow has been updated to v1.4.
    Changes include removed demolished buildings, inserted new constructed buildings, upgraded apron light lighting, and more.
      While this may not be the biggest update, Drzewiecki did acknowledge that while some areas, like ground markings, weren’t updated, v1.4 is an important step towards any potential updates in the future. V1.4 can be had for free (provided you already own the product, obviously) and the demo has been updated as well to reflect the new changes.

    Orbx has announced the launch of their official Twitch streaming channel.
    The all new and official Twitch channel will go live for the first time in late October, with the streams set to show off scenery and airport previews while also giving a stage to company news and competitions. In the announcement on the Orbx forum, CEO John Venema is quoted as saying that this channel is something he has always wanted to do.
    Live streams on the channel will be hosted by the company‚Äôs Community and Marketing Manager, Aimee Sanjari, alongside¬†well known and established Twitch streamer, Brendan Quinn ‚Äď better known by his channel name of Dirkadurka. The company felt that Brendan was a suitable choice to get involved with the channel being that he has many years of streaming and simming experience, while also being a regular user of both major simulators, Prepar3D and X-Plane.
    With the first stream set to kick off at the end of October, registered Twitch users can head over to the brand new channel to follow it and be notified when the inaugural stream goes live.

    GSX Level 2 Possible Release Date and Additional Expansions
     
    GSX Level 2 is an expansion pack coming to the popular GSX add-on by developer FSDreamTeam. Announced back at FSExpo 2018, the new expansion pack will bring fully animated 3D passengers to our simulators. Furthermore, the expansion will turn every non-SODE jetway within the sim, to be compatible with the popular in-sim engine. This means, jetways will dock accurately to your aircraft, enable more information to be displayed on them and the option to have dual jetways attached to your aircraft. This means every airport, regardless of how it was developed, will be compatible with GSX Level 2.

  16. Gibbon liked a post in a topic by Ivana Fly in NZGS Gisborne Airport coming soon to FSX/P3D   
    Hello everyone,   We are taking you all back down under with the the third airport by Finni Hansen, NZGS Gisbourne Airport in New Zealand. If you're a fan of Finni's previous works (ENNO Notodden and ENHF Hammerfest), you're going to love his recreation of this regional airport. NZGS is situated on the outskirts of Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand and is one of the few airports in the world that has a railway line, the Palmerston North-Gisborne Line, crossing the main runway. Additionally there a heliport located north of the airport on top of a hospital.     NZGS is the first Orbx airport to utilize Allen Kriesman’s CityScene tech, using Xpressim software. Included is the entire city of Gisborne, accurately depicted . Coupled with over 100.000 autogen trees and additional buildings outside the city, this package includes everything you would see on a trip into or out of Gisborne Airport. Make sure to be ready on the runway at 13:00 to watch the WA165 steam train make its way across the runway carrying passengers as it has been doing for over 100 years!    Gisbourne Airport airport is situated just next to the ocean in Poverty Bay, with spectacular views of the Young Nick’s Head mountain as you depart over open waters. It consists of a single terminal and gate, an asphalt runway 1310 meters long and several grass runways. Air New Zealand and Sunair both operate out of NZGS, however the airport is used for a combination of medical flights, SAR, and GA-Traffic - it gets quite busy as you can imagine!   Features:   Accurate representation of Gisborne airport and cityscape Large coverage area including the airport, Young Nick's Head mountain, and the city of Gisbourne Ground specular mapping Baked ambient occlusion and night lighting Dynamic lighting for P3DV4 Orbx PeopleFlow Animated WA165 Vintage Steam train  
    NZGS Gisbourne Airport¬†will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for¬†AUD $32.95¬†(approx. USD $24.35 / ‚ā¨21 / ¬£18.50 )
     
    Here are a few screenshots from Emmsie. Don't forget to stay tuned here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages for plenty more shots over the coming days! (PS - can you spot Finni's cameo?)
