Orbx Honolulu micro-region for Prepar3D v4 Announced

Orbx today announced, via their Facebook page and forums, a scenery of the whole Hawaiian island of Oahu for Prepar3D v4. The scenery has a lot of features, but I will mention the most interesting ones (a full list can be seen below): over 20,000 custom buildings, hand-placed vegetation, overhauled infrastructure, complete PBR and over 1,500 sq km of tropical terrain. The scenery will be a stand-alone product compatible with FSDT Honolulu Intl Airport and Bill Womack’s Dillingham X .

The release date and the price will be known closer to the release.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world, but my favourite airport is by far Corfu. I started this news site in May 2019 and since then my main goal is to keep you informed about the latest stuff happening on the scene.
