Third-party developers shared new assets of upcoming aircraft and airport add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

We start with DC Designs, which provided a development update about the AV-8B Harrier II, which should be released in September.

“Hi folks, more cockpit images of the Harrier in this week’s update as work progresses on the detailing and PBR texturing. It takes quite a while to go through this phase of building an aircraft, and with the Harrier’s office being a busy little place it will be at least two more weeks of work before it’s all finished.
Decals for all markings are about 50% complete, and most of the switches are now animated, with their respective functions being coded alongside the modelling work. CodenameJack is doing sterling work once again with displays and functions, broadly similar to those found in the SC Designs F-16 Fighting Falcons but tweaked to be more relevant to the Harrier.

Asobo’s pilot has been refined to move more naturally with the controls – it turns out the contact points for the controls are via the pilot’s wrist and ankles, rather than the hands and boots. Unless users have a preference for my own pilots, I’d like to start using the Asobo pilot in future products as it’s pretty good and already matches up well with everything.

There will be no update next week as I’m away for five days on a family holiday, so this will be the last you will see of the Harrier progress until August 19th. By then, I would like to have finished most of the cockpit and be underway with liveries and the AV-8B+ / GR9 variant. Sim Acoustics have said they can do the sound package in September, which ties in well with the planned release date, so it seems everything is coming together fairly well.”

Next, we take a much better look at Belfast International Airport (EGAA) in Northern Ireland by Pyreegue, with a trailer by Practically Geek.

The airport is scheduled to release this weekend, so the wait is close to its end.

Last, but not least, Impulse Simulations has completed the terminal of Bendigo Airport (YBDG) in Australia.

A trailer should be coming after the final details are done, but for now you can check out a few screenshots below.
