Flightbeam’s rendition of Denver International Airport (KDEN) for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been recently updated to version 1.4 bringing some significant changes to the scenery. Being the developer’s debut product for the new simulator, it was developed using a much premature version of the SDK.
This new version of the scenery was developed within new versions of the SDK that made it possible for the developers to improve numerous important features. This includes a significant revamp of the terrain system that in the previous versions of the scenery caused the taxiways and runways to be too steep.
Furthermore, custom orthoimagery was added to the scenery for better blending with the default imagery, various custom objects were added to the airport perimeter, many models and textures were fixed and improved, and custom ILS NAVAIDs were added. If you want to read through the complete changelog, it can be found at the very bottom of the article.
If you’ve purchased it through the in-game Marketplace, or Contrail application, you should be prompted with an update upon simulator, or application, launch. If you’ve purchased the scenery through the Flightbeam store, you will need to remove previous versions of the scenery before installing the new version from your account page at the store.
It is important to mention, that for people who purchased the scenery through the in-game Marketplace, or through the Contrail application, the new version is not titled as v1.4, but as v1.04.
If you want to purchase the scenery, you can do so through the Flightbeam store for a price of $14.99 or €12.40.
