SXAirportDesign Unexpectedly Releases San Antonio Airport New for X-Plane 12

Without any prior announcement of the development, SXAirportDesign (SXAD) has suddenly released a detailed rendition of San Antonio International Airport (KSAT) for X-Plane 12.

Details – San Antonio by SXAirportDesign

X-Plane users may be unfamiliar with SXAD due to the release of San Antonio being their first product for X-Plane. The release falls after more than a decade of products for Prepar3D and MSFS, including a previous version of San Antonio International Airport. Although optimised for X-Plane 12, users who are yet to upgrade will still be able to use the product in X-Plane 11. It is unknown why the experienced developer chose not to announce the development, but that does not take away from it now becoming available as the first payware rendition of KSAT for X-Plane.

Despite being an X-Plane debut product for SXAD, their rendition of San Antonio is developed to a high standard that would be expected from experienced payware developers. The high-fidelity creation includes the entire airport and the immediate surrounding area. From the preview images, it appears that the texturing has been completed with exceptional detail, including minor details such as flags and road signs.
