Developed by LimeSim, the second volume of the Antarctica series covers the Australian Antarctic Casey research station, a region of vast glaciers extending thousands of miles into the continent. The coverage area features a coastal landscape with penguin colonies, icebergs and a very detailed base with a helipad. It also sports detailed rugged terrain, icebergs and two icebreakers.

The package includes two skiways: Casey Skiway on the glacier, a few kilometres above the base for medium-distance operations and Wilkins Aerodrome, 70km to the south and well-known for its Airbus A319-115LR passenger services or C-17 cargo flights to Australia.

The package features two runways: Wilkins Aerodrome and Casey Skiway along with a helipad.
