Russ White – What are you up to?
My name is Russ White and since coming on board with Turbulent Designs at the start of March this year, I have been working on several airport projects. My first task was to develop L35 Big Bear airport which was released in September, I then contributed to vegetation elements at 2O3 Angwin airport.
One of my main contributions to the team has been the development and implementation of the Real Flora technology. The purpose of which is to as realistically and naturally as possible, display a wide range of vegetation in sim, to a level of detail and density never seen before in flight sim. This comprises 3D trees and vegetation, and photo realistic cross plane trees and vegetation to completely replace autogen for an extensive area around the airport, to fully immerse the user.
In the last couple of months I have been continuing with the development of MBS international airport, which had been put on hold for the last eighteen months. It is nice to be making progress with MBS again, and it’s now nearing completion. MBS is the most comprehensive and feature rich airport I have ever created, together with a completely custom made set of libraries covering every aspect of the package.
Expect some new KMBS previews imminently!
