Origami Studios Updates Gatwick Scenery for X-Plane 11 to v1.1

Origami Studios have today released a well-wanted, and promised, update for their recently released rendition of Gatwick Airport (EGKK) for X-Plane 11. Titled as v1.1, it is the first update for the scenery after the initial release that happened just five days ago.

The new update brings both new features and fixes. These include, for example, tweaked SAM parameters on certain gates and stands, adjusted UV mapping on Gatwick Shuttle tracks, added holding point J4 as well as optional non-PBR objects, or exclusion zone in front of the Boeing Hanger to eliminate trees.

Furthermore, details were added to some buildings, jetways were made more reliant while using Zibo aircraft, and the doubling up of cars near Maintenance Area 1 was removed. The complete changelog of the new version can be seen below in the article.

The update can be downloaded through the iniBuilds Store and installed by replacing the old files with the new ones. If you don’t own the scenery yet and would like to purchase it, you can do so through the iniBuilds Store for a price of approximately €23 with VAT excluded.

Gatwick is one of the biggest and busiest airports in the entire United Kingdom. It offers mainly easyJet flights around Europe, though still offers many other long haul routes to the United States, especially with Virgin Atlantic.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
