http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gSofIZtBGM Next up today, for Microsoft FSX and Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D, is a set of replacement textures designed to improve the look of your sim where it has not already been enhanced by specific airport or area scenery add-on developers.

Check out the full details, screenshots and purchase information here.
The other piece of news that slipped through the net earlier this week is that the developers of the NL2000 project have announced the release of an installer for Lockheed-Martin’s Prepar3D simulator. Installer version 4.0.38 for the scenery now supports FSX, ESP and P3D, while also fixing issues that some users had where the installer would take a long period of time to initialise. More details on NL2000 and the download files for the scenery can be found at their website.
This is another one of those packages which probably really deserves the ‘eagerly anticipated’ line in announcing its release – and not just by your editor either, who has been cursing the brownness of the default UK textures from the moment ‘autumn’ was announced by FSX. Orbx’s Full Terrain EU England package covers the entire country of England, from the tips of Cornwall and Kent up to the Scottish and Welsh borders. In total, there are over 130,00 square km of Holgermesh, ground textures and the usual Orbx tweaks including custom trees and a detailed city of London to visit.…
The excellent FlyDubai of FlyTampa reboots the international airport with an incredible level of details and high performance, but also adds an impressive rendition of downtown and surroundings. FlyTampa support forum hosts some optional files for FS2004 users, to restore the FS2004 default lights for the airpot runway. And if you are used to tweak your addon sceneries and manage such BGL files, you may also be interested in Burj Khalifa Tower strobe lights effects here.

Aerosoft’s latest release from the German Airports team covers Düsseldorf, Germany’s third-ranking international airport. The primary airport for the country’s largest metropolitan region, it is used as a hub by both Air Berlin and Lufthansa, and capable of handling the A380. Making use of recent aerial imagery, the scenery provides a realistic 3D model of the airport with all buildings and objects in place including a new taxiway layout, signs and a visual docking system which has only been in place since August 2012. As can be expected from an Aerosoft airport, textures are high resolution and there are plenty…
