The new SDK would provide the option of adding newer terrains such as roads, rivers, lakes and coastlines. The SDK would provide information regarding the steps that need to be followed in creating line and polygonal data. The SDK would also provide detailed instructions regarding the addition of custom terrains to the Microsoft Flight simulator environment.
Users could also get information regarding how to texture the data by importing aerial or satellite photos. In addition to the texture SDK, there are also other SDKs that are constantly being updated and released by Microsoft including weather themes SDK, panels and gauges SDK, Auto Gen SDK, Aircraft container SDK and special effects SDK.
Weather themes SDK would provide the user to simulate different challenging weather during the flight simulation activity.
Panels and gauges SDK would provide instructions to the users on creating gauges and panels for the aircraft used in Flight Simulator. The different panels that can be created using this SDK include the Traffic collision and avoidance system that includes Alerts for warning the aircraft about the surrounding air traffic.
Aircraft container SDK would help the users and developers to organize the different files and attributes that are related to a particular aircraft. This particular SDK would help the users to understand the different files that are required in simulating a particular aircraft and how the different files are related to each other. It also helps the users in sharing components in building the bigger parts within a particular Aircraft.
The special effect SDK would help the users to create simple effects such as emissions coming from the aircraft and the fire works that light up the night sky. This SDK would provide information regarding the different files and the configurations that are used in the SDK.
You can get your hands on all the SDK packs here.
