Kittila announcement

Hello, welcome to another development update.

Website

One of the most notable changes for FLY X Simulations since the last development update is the website! Yes, I now have a website, this will act as a place to post information about projects and as a sort of general hub for FLY X Simulations.

Kittila

You may remember that last year I released a freeware Rovaniemi for something that I call “the Xmas project”. The Xmas project is a freeware scenery that I do every year that is themed around Christmas and is sort of a way of giving back to the community as a thanks for all the support.

Last year it was Rovaniemi which is one of the main airports to serve the popular Christmas destination of Lapland and this year it is Kittila which is another one of the airports to serve Lapland.

Features

Realistic custom buildings

Custom ground textures

Ground snow textures for in winter

Both and winter and summer version

Work so far has been going well, I am about 2 weeks into it and have completed most of the ground textures and markings, some of the snow effects, and almost fully modeled the terminal and tower (which is the main bulk of the modeling).

This image uses a freeware winter mod available on Xplane.org that will be linked with the release of the scenery. It changes the Xplane ground textures too look snowy. My scenery only includes the snow within the airport perimeter.

It is important to remember that these images are of a half developed scenery, things may look a little bare and empty, but I assure you that there is a lot to be added in.

Release date

The release date is currently set for the 8th of December at mid-day UTC. I am very confident I will make this release date.

The scenery will be available on the Xplane.org forum and will not require any object libraries at all.

Lanzarote

Work on Lanzarote continues, there will be more information and previews in another development update in early January 2019.
