ShortFinal Design, also known as MisterX, has revealed details of their work in this year 2022. The developer shared the roadmap through their Facebook page. In addition, their upcoming scenery of San Francisco Definitive for X-Plane 11 has been previewed through X-Plane.org forums.
In the Facebook post, the developer speaks about the upcoming San Francisco scenery first and addresses steady progress on development. MisterX revealed some features of this scenery as well, such as terminal illuminations, which change depending on the holidays. In practice, the lights that are on the terminal will be different for Independence Day, Christmas, Halloween, etc.
Moreover, San Francisco Definitive is not the only thing the developer is working on at this moment. The developer revealed a new project, which they can’t share more about as of yet.
Users of ShortFinal Munich (EDDM) and Los Angeles (KLAX) airports can expect a new update for both sceneries during this year. Los Angeles scenery will get a new terminal and Munich can expect a new apron later this year. The developer also confirmed updating their current Salt Lake City (KSLC) scenery, which is very out of date at this moment. Though the developer wants to wait until the construction at this airport progresses more. Then, Salt Lake City is going to get its much-needed update.
