The new version brings all-new revamped night lighting, redone PBR on most surfaces, all new orthoimagery, improved vegetation colors, changed taxiway lighting to better reflect the real counterpart, and a new HD grass.

Furthermore, the FedEx ramp received proper night lighting and marshallers, a new manual was written from scratch, and airline assignments at the airport gates were fixed. The gate numbers are now also visible on the ground.
