Microsoft Flight Simulator developers continue to release new assets and add-ons for the popular simulation, and today is no exception.

We start with CJ Simulations who published new screenshots of the Eurofighter Typhoon via the product page on The Just Flight store.

Although a release date was not shared, we now know it will cost $34.99 and include the following features.

Fully native MSFS aircraft

The Typhoon was coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator’s native “Model Behaviors” animations and built to MSFS operational specifications to minimize issues with future simulator upgrades.

The CJ Simulations Typhoon is fully compatible with native MSFS materials and utilizes new simulator features such as rain effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, new “modern” aerodynamic system and custom visibility controls for wheel chocks and covers.

Other features include authentic night lighting that includes user-operated “slime lights” for combat operations and custom coded animations for flaperons and slats based on speed and angle of attack from the plane.

Extensive external animations include the canopy, crew ladder, tail hook and all control surfaces, as well as a custom delta and canard flight model based on real data for the Typhoon.

The Typhoon is also fully compatible with virtual reality headsets.


  • True 3D virtual cockpit with precisely modeled ejection seat, detailed controls and textures
  • Instruments built in 3D with smooth animations
  • Custom coded MFD screens and head-up display to match actual Typhoon screens
  • “Striped canopy” glass effects and reflective glass
  • The crew figure in the virtual cockpit is coded to disappear when you occupy their seat

Next, we take a look at the freeware Boeing 737-800 through a full trailer, as the developer promises a bigger update to come.

If you wish to follow the progress of the project, you can do so on Qbit’s Discord Server.

We then get the release of Lanyu Airport (RCNY) serving Orchid Island in Taiwan by FS Formosa.

You can buy airport on Simmarket for $10.80 plus applicable VAT.

  1. High resolution details
    The newly created model uses full-size PBR material to demonstrate the extreme changes in light and shadow.
  2. High fidelity
    Fully custom local buildings, vehicles, runway and taxiway signs, lighting, plus custom flag and headlight animations.
  3. Airport services
    The pushback service was canceled to showcase the smooth operation of the airport.
  4. Friendly performance
    Full LOD built-in models to balance detail and performance.

Last, but not least, Technobrain significantly updated Osaka–Kansai International Airport (RJBB).

The inside of the terminal has been added alongside several other details, basically addressing most of the (few) flaws mentioned in my review.

Thanks to the update, it has become one of the best international airports in the market. Below you can see a gallery and list of changes.

  • Added main terminal apron side interior
  • Added airline code to all gates and parking lot
  • Added “Rinku gate tower building”
  • Steel fence added to LCC terminal deck
  • Added a light object to the LCC terminal
  • Fixed apron lighting brightness
  • Fixed runway and taxiway terrain
  • Fixed approach lights
  • Fixed taxiway bridges
  • Fixed floating parked vehicle
