News! - Scenery Updated : EGBB Birmingham v2.1 by Boundless


EGBB Birmingham News_ header.jpg


If any scenery developer has come on in leaps and bounds it is Boundless (pun intended) Simulations. The early work felt a bit rushed, but their latest offerings are now of very much more of a better quality and detail, EINN Shannon in Ireland is a good current example.


EGBB Birmingham was one of those early releases last October 2020. And although Boundless has a coming project list that is exciting, they still had the time to review and update this quite newish Birmingham Midland UK scenery, this is v2.1.


And a very nice update it is. Focus in the update v2.1 is on getting better performance out of the scenery, by not only reducing the original hefty file size down to under 2Gb (1.89Gb), this was done by improving the ground textures and ground markings, and also adding in great and more local traffic around the Coventry Road (A45) Bypass, and that aspect looks great on approach to RWY 33. Ramp vehicles, equipment and landside vehicles are also now more local and UK branded.


Version 2.1 (March 21st 2021)
  • Greatly reduced file size
  • Improved performance 
  • Added more detail to NEC area
  • Added custom road traffic (includes UK specific vehicles)
  • Added custom airport ground traffic (real airline / ground handling companies)
  • Improved forests / tree models
  • Improved night lighting
  • Various minor bug fixes applied
  • Improved ground textures
  • Improved ground markings
