We have just released V0.5.0 of EGCC Manchester airport, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the community!
This has been released as a cheaper price while we lead up to a full release, as it is currently in early access.
EGCC – Manchester Airport
Over 500+ hours has gone into recreating the famous Manchester airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Newly created models and textures, immersive night lighting, and VATSIM compliant, this airport is a no-brainer for any virtual pilot looking to fly from or to this airport! Regularly updated with new buildings, features, and optimisations!
“This is only the start for this airport…”
Current Release: V1.0.0
Release notes here: EGCC Dev Status
We have spent a lot of time going through youtube videos, blogs, vlogs, plane spotting, google images and forums to find the exact referend data that we needed to reproduce manchester airport.
There are now 3 members of the community who are actively helping with reference images/videos, to help in accurately depicting the airport such as for the new Terminal 2 Transformation programme.
Our goal with this airport is to bring it to a whole new level of realism and accuracy, which so far has been a hit with the flight sim community!
On release, the airport is in early access with the major building in place. As time goes on, we will be updating everything including the first models and textures we made. This means that the airport will get better and better over time.
We hosted a few giveaways and launched the airport on Thursday 26th Nov 2020, with smaller channels on YouTube and Twitch, and have received amazing feedback so far!
Here is what British AvGeek produced for our launch:
