In one of its most ambitious updates ever, Infinite Flight hasreleased version 21.1 with 3D buildings and clouds. Until now,Infinite Flight pilots have enjoyed global 15m/pixel satellite terrainimagery, along with other important benchmarks such as multiplayerflight with ATC. The focus has now shifted to an even more immersiveexperience with 3D objects and updated atmosphere.
Life In 3D
Infinite Flight put the focus on its multiplayer and ATC systemearly on. Connecting the community without the need for 3rd partysystems was a priority and has allowed pilots to enjoy the InfiniteFlight skies together. Now, the Infinite Flight team has pivotedtoward 3D objects at airfields. In version 1 of this venture, 3Dobjects including buildings, jetbridges, vehicles, and even radars andfences will be static. Developers plan on gradually bringing them tolife for even more immersion in the 3D world.
3D airports will be denoted by a symbol on the map, airport infoscreen, airport search, and on the ATC status page for multiplayer. Asmall collection of 3D airports have been released in 21.1 includingLos Angeles, Dubai, and London Heathrow. The full list of airports isas follows:
- CYTZ - Billy Bishop Toronto City
- KDEN - Denver International
- NZQN - Queenstown
- EGLL - London Heathrow
- KJFK - John F Kennedy International
- OMDB - Dubai International
- EGPH - Edinburgh

A hand-picked airport creation and editing team has been workingquietly in the background building airports using a yet-to-be-revealedairport builder. More details on how this works will be explained in afuture release.
Cirrus Cloud Layer
Version 1 of clouds have made their way into Infinite Flight for21.1 in the form of a user-controlled cirrus layer. Clouds will reactto atmospheric conditions such as winds aloft and light, however userswill control their altitude and coverage in version 1. It wasimportant to Infinite Flight developers that the first iteration ofcloud cover reacted properly to the environmental elements.
Airports in the Infinite Flight multiplayer environment aresometimes subjected to unrealistically large volumes of traffic,especially during community events. It's important, especially duringthose times, for ATC to control the flow. New in 21.1, controllers canuse speed assignments such as "Maintain 160kts until 4 mile final" tohelp keep pilots arrive on time at their destination.
Most Infinite Flight updates come with a selection of new liveriesfor pilots to choose from and 21.1 is no exception.
We've also added a fresh coat of paint to our A350 and C172 incelebration of our 10 year anniversary!
