KDEN//MSFS: An Update on the Update

Hello everyone!

It's been a while and since there's been a lot of development with the new KDEN update I figured this would be a good time to update everyone on what to expect.


I've been extremely fortunate to have some amazing customers who work at the airport, send me a slew of previous photos of the massive expansions happening at the airport. It's become apparent that this is by far one of the biggest real world expansions at an airport I've seen in some time. For this reason I'm breaking this update up into 2 or 3 separate updates. The reason for this is due to the nature of the update, which is free, and the considerable time it takes just to update one terminal. I'm not simply adding the new expansion section.. each massive terminal in its entirety is being updated with big visual upgrades:


- New 4k textures and updated PBR

- Exterior modeling upgrades

- Entirely new interior, completely re-made from scratch

- Brand new Flightbeam Gen-5 Jetways at each gate

- Static passengers at some gates

- ... and most obviously.. the new expanded section of the terminal.


The first update is coming soon, and it will feature the newly renovated Concourse B, which is the largest one at KDEN. The reason B comes first is simple, the construction of this expansion at the real airport is long complete already (the other expansions are still under construction at the airport). Note that there is still ongoing construction on the east side of Concourse B at the regional gates, this new section will not be included yet.


Along with those upgrades, I'll also be including proper airline codes for each gate, to accommodate the new AI traffic programs that have been recently coming out. Those changes will be reflected at ALL gates with the first update.


Lastly, a few teasers:



Probably the most patient passengers in the world.

Really lookin forward to the updates. There's one thing on my mind though. You were talking about 4K textures. Will there be lower res textures available, too in case the 4K textures impact performance on some computers?

What does this mean for SFO, MSP, and PHX? Have their timelines been pushed back?

Any chance this ever makes it to P3D for us other sim customers? Thanks.

Well darn, that’s really disappointing to hear - that seems pretty doubtful.

I know this is a lot of work for an upgrade that you're not charging for. Could you post a "buy me a coffee (and cake?)" link so people can at least contribute optionally to support you on this? It only seems fair and it helps encourage future development!

Appreciate your support! There's already a tip field which is visible during checkout, so if you ever purchase something again, highly appreciate the tip!
