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