Aerosoft Relaunches Zurich

Airport Zurich V2.0 for X-Plane 10 is now available as a download.

The package from Aerosoft recreates Zurich Airport as it is today with the buildings matching the state of the airport facilities as of the end of 2015, including Terminal 2, which was recently rebuilt, and new entrances to Terminals 1 and 2.

Buildings and objects are modelled in 3D and come in photorealistic detail with some rendered with high-resolution 2K textures. A multitude of animations have been recreated such as radar systems, windsocks and airport traffic.

Other features include new transparent boarding bridges with glass sides at every gate and parking positions (including spaces for the Airbus A380). The ground layout has also been made from scratch based on high-resolution aerial images with accurate taxiway/runway signs and lighting along with updated nav data.

And thanks to baked textures in combination with X-Plane’s HDR rendering, Airport Zurich will shine at night.

Despite the number of features and complexity, great attention has been paid to performance and Aerosoft claims it will achieve ‘good frame rates’.
