A demo of this product is available. This is a fully functional freeware scenery, perfectly aligned with the full payware version. This ensures no problems with online (VATSIM, IVAO and multiplayer) flying in case some users have the payware scenery and some don’t. The demo features simplified airports with main buildings but with low resolution textures, non-animated jetways and generally much less details. Demo sceneries are available on our website and on other websites with FS freeware add-ons.
Changes in version 5.1
- SODE fix due to changes in the latest version of SODE engine
- New Effect files for better Dynamic Lighting
