The second batch of the Dolomites scenery is nearing its release.

After the release of the first pack, out of five that will make the whole region, of the Dolomites, Frank and Fabio have the second part already well-underway and pretty advanced.

In fact, they seem to be planning a release for early April.

This new area, in which the authors put a lot of love and work as usual, spans across an area of about 1000 sq km (around 386 sq miles). More than 13,000 buildings were added, and all the vegetation mapped.

In this area, the Cortina d'Ampezzo Airport (LIDI), which is an airport that has been deactivated for several yers, was added. There’s a possibility that this airport may be reactivated for the 2026 Winter Olympics. This is not a particularly easy airport and the airport was closed precisely because of some accidents that occurred there during landings.

As usual, several landing spots have been added as well, in the most important points of the scenery, normally located near the main refuges.

Enjoy the images and stay tuned as the scenery should be released within the next few weeks.

Again, this is the second of five parts that will make the whole new Dolimiti 3D. It’s not an upgrade and users of the previous scenery will not get a discount.

Nonetheless, Frank and Fabio are trying to make it so that owners of the first part may get a discount.
