FranceVFR Next Mesh series expanded

The Iberic peninsula has received its Next Mesh product by FranceVFR. It covers Spain and Portugal with a High Definition mesh as high as LOD13, based on NextMap Europe program. Other titles are available for the Western Europe countries.

Their Europe bundle, also part of the Next Mesh series, is a little bit different since the High Definition in the simulator has been limited to LOD11. This achieves anyway a very good definition of the mesh from Great Britain to Italy, and from Netherlands down to Portugal.

Daytona Beach from Aerosoft released

Daytona in Florida is almost certainly more famous for its racetrack and ‘the 500′ than it is for its airport, but that’s okay, because Aerosoft‘s rendition of Daytona Beach International Airport (KDAB) covers the speedway, the airport, plus a lot more besides, for FSX and P3D.

With additional corrections for six other airport locations, all of which are covered within a substantial 4850 km² photoreal area, plus a helipad, an ongoing NASCAR race at the Speedway, the beach and not forgetting all the usual high quality detail and features you’d expect from an Aerosoft airport, you can find full details here.

TS2015 takes on “Epic” proportions

w600_57384_ss_image1Rather than just release their new Soldier Summit route for Train Simulator 2015 as a regular DLC pack, developers Dovetail Games have given it an entire new version of the sim of its own, partnering it with the previously released “London – Faversham High Speed” and “The Rhine Railway: Mannheim-Karlsruhe” in TS2015 Epic Journeys Edition.

Because the new edition is being sold for the same price as a normal DLC route, if you don’t have either of the others, then it’s at least two routes for the price of one… If you’re interested, you can find it on Steam, here.
