Moving right along our roadmap as promised, Flightbeam is proud to announce the release of KMSP - Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator. A culmination of years of development over time and an extensive onsite, airside survey, KMSP follows the footsteps of our previous internal products that focus on carefully crafted models to convey full immersion for serious flight simulation users.
All New Models and Construction
KMSP airport has been busy since our last work on it. The massive new garage named Silver Ramp is an 11-story behemoth, with intricate metal work all around. Of course, this is included, in fantastic detail too, featuring parked vehicles inside, along with visible lights from the ramps. Closeby, a hotel has also sprung up. The Intercontinental Hotel is nestled right between the A and G gates. Right across the hotel lies the brand new G gates with the shiny new Delta Sky Club, featuring an outdoor seating area with great views of 30L and the G-gates! We'll let you discover that on your own.
Our proprietary techniques means the same immersive gate detail. Instead of pushing products every month, we visit each and every airport to capture the atmosphere, detail and all the nuances. The gates are absolutely packed with detail, ready for your aircraft!
