Manchester Xtreme Scenery Released by UK2000

Posted on Wed, 18 Jan 2012 19:00:00 GMT

In January 2010 UK2000 Scenery announced its release of Manchester Xtreme, a scenery add-on for FSX and FS2004.

Manchester Xtreme is a scenery add-on made to a high level of accuracy and detail – it was designed using a new method that increases frame rates. However, it still maintains a friendly frame rate – making it easy and fun to use. This scenery add-on is considered by UK2000 to be one of its most outstanding versions. The add-on comes with a bonus; you can choose to see Concorde outside of its museum hanger if you like.

Manchester Airport (UK) is one of the busiest airports in the country, with an estimated 20 million passengers using the airport every year, and further increases are expected in the near future.

Manchester Xtreme represents the airport in all its splendour, with detailed images of the real Manchester airport and a lot of animation and effects. Users of Manchester Xtreme have indicated that they like this scenery add-on for a number of reasons:

  • There are full detail buildings with realistic ground markings and runway markings
  • The add-on has excellent frame rates, animated traffic, unique service fleet and  full set of signs
  • There are spectacular night effects with 3D approach lights
  • There are runway wigwags, fencing, and static aircraft
  • There are dozens of airport vehicles and unique service for fleet
  • And much more

There is a Full Xtreme version as well as a FREE cut-down, demo version of the scenery, which should only be used for less than twenty four hours.
