  1. I am absolutely delighted to introduce ESMS Malmö Airport for P3Dv4 & v5 from acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg. Hot on the heels of his highly popular Gothenburg and Scandinavian Mountains Airport projects, Malmö has been carefully kept under wraps for the past three months, and is the next destination in Marcus' Swedish airport series. Combining many of his signature design techniques such as incredible texture work, attention to detail, and beautiful hand-coloured seasonal variants, Malmö Airport represents the very best of what P3Dv4 & v5 technology has to offer. Serving as Sweden's fourth-busiest airport, Malmö welcomes passengers from across Scandinavia, as well as further afield across central and southern Europe. Many will know the airport by it's popular previous name - Malmö Sturup Airport - which although officially discontinued in 2007, is still what it is colloquially known by. Whilst most at-home with narrowbody (737/A320/E-Jet) and regional aircraft (BAe146/CRJ/F-50/ATR-72) types, Malmö also sees the occasional 747 or An-124. During non-COVID times, the airport is host to SAS, Braathens, Norwegian, Ryanair, Wizzair and more, whilst as a major cargo hub, is a port of call for UPS, Amapola and others. One of the most unique features of the airport is the second runway and adjacent aero clubs - almost a separate GA airfield of sorts. The Sturup Aero Club is situated amongst the maintenance hangars, as well as several flight schools. Standing alone on the south side of the secondary runway, the Aero Club in Malmö and South Sweden Flight Academy provide additional facilities for the GA flyer looking to explore the area. Malmö is also a major Fokker 50 maintenance base for Amapola Flyg, as well as a graveyard/storage facility for the West Air BAe ATP fleet - both of which have been faithfully depicted in this scenery. As to be expected from Marcus, no detail has been spared with the creation of Malmö. Beautiful PBR texturing has been used on key infrastructure items, whilst mixed-materials textures have been used elsewhere, ensuring the perfect balance between detail and performance. Complete seasonal variations, weather-controlled ground features, interior modelling, and special attention to landside details abound. The approaches have been faithfully reproduced with blended orthoimagery and hand-placed autogen, whilst the night lighting uses the best of both dynamic and rendered (baked) lighting to again get the best out of the simulator. Animated SODE jetways, a custom GSX profile, and optional VDGS (requiring the SODE VDGS pack) round out the features for the serious simmers amongst us. Developed with the full co-operation and assistance of Malmö Airport management, special thanks must go to Jan Wieslander and Andreas Lundvall with their on-site assistance over the past several months. An airport built to the highest standards, ESMS combines the latest P3D tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunningly high-fidelity visuals and excellent performance, perfect as your next Scandinavian destination! FEATURES Immaculately detailed depiction of ESMS Malmö Airport for P3Dv4+ The latest Scandinavian airport from acclaimed Swedish developer Marcus Nyberg (Gothenburg/Kiruna/Stockholm Arlanda) Stunning ultra-HD texturing through the airport, including PBR for primary components Customized interior modelling Weather-influenced PBR ground textures Night light lighting using a combination of dynamic and baked lighting for a completely immersive night experience Animated SODE jetways Optional accurate VDGS for customers who use the SODE VDGS pack Unique custom aircraft (F-50/BAe ATP and more) made specifically for Malmo Detailed APX, pre-configured for complete GSX compatibility A short flight to other popular Scandinavian destinations, Stockholm Arlanda, Gothenburg, Dala, Scandinavian Mountains Airports and Alesund Painstakingly optimized for excellent performance even with high-end aircraft Designed for P3Dv4+ to blend seamlessly with Orbx Global Base and/or openLC Europe. Also compatible with Vector Developed with the full co-operation and assistance of Malmö Airport management Please stay tuned for more previews and details over the coming weeks. Enjoy!
  2. Hi everyone, Thank you all for the wonderful feedback on our first previews of Gothenburg Landvetter - whilst the team are testing the scenery, I thought I would show off a few new features we didn't mention last week. First up I wanted to show off some of the different weather & season effects. As anyone who's ever been to Gothenburg knows, rain is the default weather (sorry folks but it's true!). So I've spent quite a lot of effort trying to create the perfect rainy ambient feeling. Winter has not been forgotten either, and we are talking both the beautiful white christmas type, and the more muddy type where the snow is almost melting away in the december rain. With different environment effects depending on weather type, arriving to Gothenburg on a rainy december day when the snow is almost melting away or a sunny ice cold January day now will bring you a very different experience. We'll just let the screenshots speak for themselves. With that said, let's wrap this up by saying: We are getting quite close - keep an eye out this week for more updates!
  3. I am delighted to introduce Scandinavian Mountains Airport, the world's newest international airport! Kicking straight on from the groundbreaking Gothenburg Landvetter, acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg brings us the latest in his Swedish series. Working in close consultation with (and appreciated support of) the airport's real-world owners, this project started work prior to the grand opening of the airfield on December 22nd last year. Combined with Marcus' ground-breaking snow technology, ESKS also brings to the simulator a true first - incredible 3cm drone-sourced aerial imagery. This stunning tech works around the 7cm ground limitation (without tweaking the core sim or cfg files) to bring to life one of the most immersive airports you will experience in Prepar3D. Scandinavian Mountains Airport is a brand-new, purpose-designed Swedish airport, located close to the Norwegian border. The airfield was constructed to primarily service the major ski resorts located nearby. Designed to handle aircraft up to B747 in size, ESKS hosts scheduled A320, RJ100 and ATR72 services to both Swedish and European destinations, including Gothenburg, Heathrow and Copenhagen. Whilst primarily a winter holiday destination, the airfield is expected to handle year-round traffic, including corporate and GA flights alongside RPT services. SMA is a trailblazer in another important aspect; it has the first purpose-built remote virtual control tower (RVT), meaning that ATC staff are based in Sundsvall, rather than the airport itself. The airport is also ideally placed for short-haul flights to many of your favourite Orbx airports, including Stockholm, Gothenburg, Kiruna, Visby and Dala. As to be expected from Marcus, the airport package includes all the latest technology; 4k mixed-material and PBR texturing, a sublime dynamic ground poly, advanced rendering techniques, internal modelling, beautiful hand-drawn night lighting, custom static aircraft and GSE. Of course, the icing on the cake is the stunning snow technology that builds upon what you have seen at Kiruna and Gothenburg - this truly is the best winter experience you will have in a simulator! An airport built to exacting standards, ESKS combines the latest P3Dv4 tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunning visuals and excellent performance. FEATURES Incredible drone-sourced 3cm aerial imagery around the airport, including advanced normal/spec maps beyond the normal GP The world's newest international airport, with flights to major Swedish and European destinations including Heathrow and Copenhagen Immaculately detailed multi-seasonal depiction of ESKS Scandinavian Mountains Airport Stunningly realistic depiction of unique snow during the winter months Interior modelling Advanced materials, including PBR Colour-corrected coverage area at 7cm & 50cm resolution, with hand-placed autogen Custom static aircraft & GSE unique to ESKS Weather-influenced ground textures Stunning night light lighting A short flight to our other Swedish destinations, Gothenburg, Stockholm Arlanda, Kiruna, Visby and Dala The perfect short-haul destination for A320/NGX, regional jet and GA flyers alike! Designed for P3Dv4 to blend seamlessly with Orbx Norway, Orbx Global Base and openLC Europe Painstakingly optimized for very high performance, even with high-end aircraft. The latest in our Swedish Series from acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg Please stay tuned for more previews and details over the coming weeks!
  4. God dag! I figured it was time for a second round of previews for my upcoming ESKS Scandinavian Mountains Airport, and to share a little bit of a background story about how we took on this project. But before I do, I would like to thank you all for the great feedback from our first announcement last week. Work is progressing very well, and we are entering the final stages of development shortly. Every year when I grew up (which is close to ESSD Dala Airport), we went to my family's winter cabin in Gördalen, roughly 80 km from Sälen. Depending on my dad's mood, we took the route via Älvdalen, or we took the one via Sälen. If we went via Sälen we had to go into Norway and then back into Sweden to come to our cabin. The road markings switch to yellow and the roads become worse (as my dad used to joke), but aside from that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Scandinavian Mountains Airport didn't exist when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, it didn't exist until just a few days prior to Christmas last year. But I know the area well, located just a brief drive from Sälen, but also conveniently enough from Trysil, over the border in Norway. Hence the name - an airport covering two of the biggest ski-resorts in two countries. When I heard about that the airport would actually take off, it seemed like a very obvious project to take on. We were lucky to get some great help from the airport management, who simply said "that sounds cool", when we explained what we intended to do. Pierre Engblom (who made the autogen placements you see in this scenery) and I took a day trip out there in October and got all the reference material we needed. A unique issue with a completely new airport is that up-to-date satellite imagery is almost impossible to acquire. So after a great deal of deliberation on how best to proceed, we had a conversation with the airport management, to see if they had any leads; "Sure, we've got the whole airport shot with a drone in 3cm/resolution, you can use that if you like". The result? Welcome to the first Orbx airport with 3cm/px aerial imagery! A special feature of the 3cm ground imagery is the added advanced materials that come with it - you can watch the soil and grass realistically morph as the lighting conditions change. Combined with the snow and rain variations, this creates a far more dynamic environment compared to traditional flat orthoimagery. Be sure to keep an eye out for more information and previews coming out both here and on our Facebook page over the coming week. Mycket nöje!
  5. We are extremely excited to unveil something quite special today - Gothenburg Landvetter Airport - the latest work from our own Swedish expert, Marcus Nyberg! This is a project we have carefully kept under wraps for the past couple of months. Marcus has decided to take a break from his Spanish series, returning to Sweden following on from his award-winning Kiruna and Stockholm Arlanda airports. Due to be released just in time for the northern winter, Gothenburg includes ground-breaking snow technology, creating an immersive and realistic wintry experience beyond anything else in the current Orbx library. Combined with expertly colour-matched ground texturing, the airport is a true multi-seasonal location, with a large visual difference between the summer and winter extremes (as can be seen in the above slider). Serving as Sweden's second-busiest airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport serves 7 million passengers annually to local, European and long-haul destinations. Located about 20km from the city centre, ESGG hosts over 40 airline operators, from regional turboprops and jets (Braathens Regional, Widerøe), low-cost carriers (Norwegian, WizzAir, Ryanair), legacy airlines (SAS, Lufthansa, BA, KLM), through to charter and long-haul carriers such as TUI and Qatar. As well as airliners, the airport is home to several corporate, cargo and government operators, not to mention regular visits from the Volvo-chartered An-12! Whether you are more interested in widebody 787/A330 flights, intra-European runs in your 737NGXu or A320, short-haul runs in the CRJ, Q400, BAe146, B717 or your favourite corporate jet, Gothenburg caters to all types of flyers. As to be expected from Marcus, the scenery includes all the latest bells and whistles - animated SODE jetways, interior modelling, up-to-4K mixed-material and PBR textures, advanced rendering techniques, stunning night lighting, custom vehicle animations, GSX compatibility, animated peopleflow and beautiful hand-placed autogen. Furthermore, for the first time in an Orbx airport, we offer full compatibility with the new SODE VDGS pack (not required and sold separately), to ensure the last part of your flight is the most realistic. Of course the attention goes further than that; expect to see painstakingly created custom detailing, unique static aircraft and GSE designed specifically for this airport and much much more. An airport scenery built to the highest standards, ESGG combines the latest P3Dv4 tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunningly high-fidelity visuals and excellent performance, perfect for all your Scandinavian flying adventures! FEATURES Exquisitely detailed multi-seasonal depiction of ESGG Gothenburg Landvetter Airport Sweden's second-busiest airport, served by over 40 local and long-haul airlines Ultra-detailed 4K textures implementing mixed-use materials, including PBR texturing, other advanced materials and advanced rendering Stunningly realistic depiction of unique snow during the winter months Animated SODE Jetways Optional accurate VDGS for customers who use the new SODE VDGS Pack Interior modelling for main terminal Perfectly colour-corrected 120sq km PR coverage area with hand-placed autogen Custom static aircraft & GSE unique to Landvetter Airport Stunning night lighting Weather-influenced ground textures Detailed APX & GSX config file Custom animated vehicles Complete seasonal variations A short flight to our other Swedish destinations, Stockholm Arlanda, Kiruna, Visby and Dala Designed for P3Dv4 to blend seamlessly with Orbx Global Base and/or openLC Europe. Also compatible with Vector. Painstakingly optimized for very high performance even with high-end aircraft installed By acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg (Stockholm Arlanda/Bilbao/Kiruna/Asturias/Valdez) Keep an eye out for new (as yet unannounced) features, screenshots and more over the coming week!
  6. This looks like an interesting new destination when the airport opens on December 22nd this year: https://scandinavianmountains.se/en/home/ It is only a short flight from Norway, Denmark, and a other airports in Sweden. https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/scandinavian-mountains-airport-remote-air-traffic-control/index.html Hope Marcus Nyberg will keep an eye on this one.
  7. Hi, Earlier this year we announced ESSD Dala Airport, a small regional airport in Dalarna, Sweden. Today we are happy to announce that it will be part of an airport bundle and I'm eager to also show you some screenshots of ESNQ Kiruna Airport. Kiruna is a mining town in the far north of Sweden, located beautifuly in the wild landscapes of Lappland. There are daily flights to Stockholm Arlanda and just across the border you'll find Narvik, so you will for sure be able use your Orbx-sceneries to commute. With this package I'm also very proud to announce snow as rarely seen before in the simulator. As a native Swede, snow is close to heart and we bring you 3D-snow that will make the airports really come to life during wintertime with hardly any performance hit. I hope you will enjoy the screenshots, remember it being work in progress and things might change. So, enough talking, here we have ESNQ Kiruna Airport and ESSD Dala Airport. Regards, Marcus
  8. Hey! Pretty much done. Time to wrap this up. All screens P3D v3.
