Boundless Partnerships, Releases, and Development for MSFS

In what has been tagged as a busy day, Boundless have taken to Facebook to announce recent partnerships, plans for future developments for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and the release of new products for X-Plane 11.

First of all, they have partnered with iniBuilds, to promote and sell their simulator addons. IniBuilds are known for their liveries, their A300 iniSimulations, and GSX Profiles, as well as providing addons for X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D through their store page.

The second announcement involves their plans to start developing for the new simulator, though they stress this will not slow down development for X-plane 11.

Thirdly, Boundless have announced the release of Shannon Airport (EINN) for X-Plane 11. This addon features a comprehensive list of details, consisting of high definition photorealistic taxiway and runway textures, buildings (including terminal interiors), and brand new GA static aircraft, as well as 3D grass and full night lighting, among others things. The full list of features can be found below.

Shannon Airport is available from the Boundless website, priced at EUR 20.39, or, as stated above, from the iniBuilds store.

Featuring Ireland’s longest runway, Shannon Airport (EINN), was listed as an alternative landing site for the Space Shuttle, but nowadays it caters for all kinds of aircraft, including military.

I have been an avid aviation enthusiast for about eight years since I first started using FSX. Apart from flying in the sims (now X-Plane 11 and MSFS) I enjoy reading about aviation through the many periodicals and books available. I live in South Yorkshire in the northern half of the UK.
