FlightBeam Previews Auckland for MSFS
Written by JT on September 11, 2021
FlightBeam has recently shared some new previews of their upcoming rendition of Auckland for Microsoft Flight Simulator through their website. This rendition will bring Auckland Airport (NZAA), which is one of the most favourite sceneries among Prepar3D flight simmers.
Auckland International Airport is an international airport located near the capital of New Zealand. It is also the busiest airport in the country, with over 21 million passengers handled in 2019. It serves as the main hub for Jetstar Airways and Air New Zealand.
The developer promises a detailed rendition of this airport. It is still in progress, however, according to FlightBeam, it will not be a port-over from the ESP platform of Lockheed Martin, into which it has been released quite recently. So this is a second version, specifically designed for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The scenery has been initially shown off back in October of last year, and ever since we didn’t get the core feature list for this airport. With that said, we can only guess what we are going to get based on the feature list of the Prepar3D version and on things that the developer already mentioned in their posts.
According to all of this, this scenery should come with high resolution 4K textures, PBR materials, specifically developed for this platform, animated jetways and 3D interior of key areas, the rest will have to be confirmed by FlightBeam.
