What Does This Update Bring ?
In the post, the developer announced the release of this update as version 2.0, outlining significant improvements over the previous scenery rendition.
Firstly, this update brings significant changes to the airport models. Missing buildings are now accurately modelled and all buildings feature improved textures. The developer also added new cosmetic models, such as the ‘Hellfest guitar’ to enhance immersion. The airport jetways are also updated with new ‘SIXT adverts’.
Additionally, this update features redesigned ground textures that accurately mimic the airport’s ‘patchy’ tarmac. Grounds markings are also revised to match the airport’s new parking stand layout.
Finally, the developer recommends scenery users to enable photogrammetry and install City Update II to enjoy better airport surroundings.
Update Pricing and Availability
The update is now available free of charge for customers that purchased the scenery though the Contrail shop.
Customers who made their scenery purchase via Orbx can anticipate receiving the update at no additional cost within the next 24 to 48 hours from the time of the announcement. For those who purchased through the marketplace, the update will be available shortly, as confirmed by the developer.
For new customers, the scenery can be purchased from the Contrail shop for €18,45 (including tax).
