In Microsoft Flight Simulator, every new scenery add-on is a chance to explore unfamiliar territories from the comfort of one’s home. Today we’re bringing you a new suggestion based on the work of Clifford Ramos, an independent developer from the Philippines, who recently unveiled a project that promises to introduce simmers to the beauty of this beautiful Asian country.
After a year of meticulous development, Ramos, a self-proclaimed hobbyist who stumbled into scenery development, has crafted an immersive experience that transports simmers to the stunning northernmost reaches of his home country.
Philippines: A Tropical Adventure encapsulates the rugged beauty of the border between the Cagayan Valley and Ilocos Norte, an area celebrated for its dramatic rocky coastline and pristine white beaches. This destination is a gem for virtual pilots who appreciate the blend of natural wonders and the challenge of navigating diverse terrains.
The developer invites simmers to initiate their virtual journey from a selection of starting points including Z25M, RP60, RP61, and RP62, or opt for any of the numerous parking spots and helipads peppered across the landscape. The add-on is not just a feast for the eyes but also a challenge for the skills with features including:
- Kilometers of rocky coastline
- Mountain roads (tarmac and gravel) if you prefer driving
- Lots of waterfalls and rivers
- Short grass landing strips
- Beach Resorts
- Tropical vegetation
- Lots of helipads
The Philippines is an archipelago with over 7,000 islands, offering a vast array of landscapes and climates. For MSFS simmers, this new scenery offers a unique flying experience that combines the thrill of exploration with the beauty of the Philippine archipelago. It’s an opportunity to navigate through challenging airstrips, simulate search and rescue missions, or simply enjoy a serene flight over some of the most breathtaking landscapes the country has to offer.
