Axonos Releases Gold Coast Airport (YBCG) for X-Plane 12

Orbx took to their Facebook page earlier this week to announce the release of Axonos’ rendition of Gold Coast Airport (YBCG) for the X-Plane 12 flight simulator platform. The product was announced by the team earlier this month and was developed in parallel with the soon-to-be-released Gold Coast landmarks package by Orbx.

About Gold Coast Airport (YBCG)

Gold Coast Airport, formerly known as Coolangatta Airport is an international airport located at the southern end of the Gold Coast and approximately 90 kilometers south of Brisbane, Australia. The entrance to the airport is situated in the suburb of Bilinga near Coolangatta. The main runway cuts through the state borders of Queensland and New South Wales leading to a unique circumstance. During the summer season, both states are in two different time zones. YBCG observes Queensland time (AEST) which is 10 hours ahead of UTC.

Key features

Axonos’ Gold Coast Airport (YBCG) features a highly detailed and accurate depiction of Gold Coast Airport and includes the new apron and taxiway. The developer team has fully optimized the product for the best performance possible using the latest techniques. Features of the scenery include custom HDR night lighting, PBR high-definition textures, PBR ground textures with stunning water effects, and fully color-corrected and masked orthophoto. Furthermore, animated air marshalls using SAM (Scenery Animation Manager) have also been included.
