More Hundred Dollar Burger XP11 Screenies

The Hundred Dollar Burger series for X-Plane 11 is moving along. We’re on our second beta now, so I thought I’d take a moment and share some more screenies – this time of Plum Island (2B2).

Minute Man Now Gets Along Better With Orbx

Hey, everyone. We just added a file that might help you Orbx FTX Global fans enjoy your Minute Man airport a bit more. The original photoscenery for 6B6 was designed, logically, to blend well with the default landclass tiles. However, we know a lot of you also run Orbx’s FTX Global, which changes the look of the sim in some seasons rather substantially. To help maintain our smooth blending, we’ve added a new set of files to smooth the transition to the Orbx look better.

If you’re already a Minute Man – Plum Island owner, log into the My Account page on our site and click the link to your purchase. The new blending file will be available in your list of downloads. If you’re not a customer yet… hey, here’s another reason to give it a try.

Enjoy!

Minute Man – Plum Island Released!

My wife asked me the other day – “what the heck is a Hundred Dollar Burger?” Some of you flying types probably get it. It’s a code familiar a whole class of winged nomads who will use any excuse to get airborne, up to and including “I heard the food was good at [insert airport name here].”

Well sim folks, the food is not just good, it’s great at Nancy’s Airfield Cafe. Want to find out how good? We’ve just released a new scenery package that might help. Welcome to the Hundred Dollar Burger: Minute Man – Plum Island.

You get not one, but two classic New England airports. Minute Man Field in Newburyport, Mass. (2B2), a reworking of our classic and popular scenery, coupled with Minute Man in Stow (6B6). Both are designed for Microsoft Flight Simulator X, FSX:Steam Edition, and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v3 and v4.

Both fields come with the standard features you expect from us – 3D vegetation, high-quality models, large, well-blended photoreal areas around each airport, etc. Plus, at Minute Man we’ve added a couple of new tricks you might not have seen: proximity-triggered animated hangar doors that open when you approach them, and pilot-controlled runway lighting at night!

Trot on over to the product page and check it out!

Return of the 100 Dollar Burger

In the midst of all the announcements about large airport projects, a GA-loving person might despair that we’re abandoning our first love. Au contraire! As we steam towards KDAL and KPDX, our aim is to keep the flow of smaller fields going as well. And to prove that commitment, we’ll soon be releasing a dual-airport pack featuring an old favorite that’s been given a facelift (2B2 Plum Island), along with a new project that we’ve wanted to get to for a while now, 6B6 Minuteman Field.

Both airports are located in the US state of Massachusetts, and would make for great flights from Nantucket and The Heron’s Nest. Here are a couple previews of 6B6 just to kick things off…

And yes, those are 3D-modeled bottles of mustard in the second screenie. Details!
