Airport Stuttgart XP

Airport Stuttgart XP brings the international airport of the state capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg as a native add-on to the flight simulator X-Plane.

This add-on represents the airport in the latest status of development of the real airport. All airport buildings, the layout of the runway and taxiways, as well as the lighting systems and all navaids have been implemented in detail and with PBR textures (Physically Based Rendering). In addition, numerous buildings were created for the area to ensure a real-life feeling of the airport.

• Standalone, fully customized XP12 version
• Revised lighting
• Ground textures now including PBR reflections and normal maps
• Revised orthophoto, color optimized for XP12, including autumn/winter version and normal map

• Weather effects for wet, snow and ice
• Full support for native XP12 seasons, with no other add-ons or plugins

X-PlaneReviews reviewed the X-Plane 11 version on the release of the scenery from Aerosoft: Scenery Review : LTFM - Airport Istanbul XP by Aerosoft. I had a lot of comments on the ground textures, lighting and the layout of this earlier version. But a lot of the listed update revisions do cover those comments, it will be interesting to see this X-Plane 12 version in it's revised state.

Notable is that you have to use the "Aerosoft One" application to install (update) on both Stuttgart and Istanbul XP12 sceneries...

 

Installation of either airport for XP12 is done through Aerosoft one installer:

After you have installed Aerosoft One, click on  

ENTER PRODUCT KEY (under the Library Tab)

Then enter the Serial Number provided in this order. This will give you the option to download the airport. Note the different X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12 installations.

 

The earlier X-Plane 11 versions are also included in either package, but without the XP12 effects
