We have some news (and fresh screenshots) for you today of our upcoming Vancouver Intl. scenery for Prepar3D V4/V5 and Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS). We have been hard at work over the past few weeks to deliver the most accurate depiction of Vancouver yet.
First things first, we would like to point out that Vancouver for P3D will feature a large coverage area with 178 square kilometers of imagery and bolster an amazing depiction of downtown Vancouver with custom-made buildings.
The airport itself is fully updated as of August 2020. All the details you can expect to see in real life have been modeled, which includes the soon-to-be-finished Pier D. We will also be providing an update to include the latest work on Apron 6 soon after release.
In addition, Vancouver will also include:
- Accurate modeling of the entire airport, based on thousands of photos from partners working at the airport
- Outstanding texture quality, using native MSFS and P3D materials and techniques (including handcrafted textures with full PBR and in 4K resolution)
- High resolution seasonal aerial photography
- Immediate airport surroundings landmarks (including 5 custom-made bridges across the Fraser River, a shopping outlet right under the arrival path for 26R, and much more)
As of the release date, we are excited to announce that we are planning a release on October 31st. The release for MSFS will come no longer than two weeks after. So mark your calendars, start your flight planning and prepare to be wowed!
