Verticalsim Tampa Pricing and Features Released

Verticalsim, formerly known as Verticalsim Studios, has today posted via their Facebook page a small development update about their Tampa International Airport scenery for X-Plane 11. Together with one preview and feature list, Verticalsim has confirmed, that the price of the scenery, when released, is going to be $24.99.

In comparison with other Verticalsim sceneries, the price is way higher. Verticalsim justifies this, because of the two-year development process and the quality. The release date is still unknown, but there are a few last things that need to be finished before the release.

The scenery promises super high-resolution orthoimagery covering the airport itself, landmarks or PBR textures, for example. As usual, the complete feature list can be seen below.
