My goodness! Why is there so much controversy over this project?! Then again, doesn't extremely beautiful things normally cause controversy? Sadly, its those of you who had so much to complain about that drew me out to do something I (D'Andre) have NEVER done before and will not do again anytime soon! And that's show off my FSX! I like to keep the heavy flying and large airports to FS9. So as I can barely squeeze out 25FPS with heavy airports with my non overclocked 3.5ghz system, I can't enjoy this the way I really want to. So as much, this is not one of my usual impressions. But I can give a few thoughts can't I? Well... Yes. Yes I can.Hopefully these screens from my lousy system will give some justice to this very beautiful airport. Amir, you have outdone yourself!
Keep in mind this is default FSX. I don't have any addons for it.
For those complaining about bridges? Be glad there are bridges. A lot of developers tend to get lazy and just provide a flat image. So be glad there are bridges at all.
The FSX frames are not bad at all but lets face it, I pull an average of 75 FPS at JFK and LAX with max traffic in FS9. Here with no traffic, I still won't hit 30. So whereas I do very much love the scenery, this is only the demo version you see before you. This is well worth the price of less than $40 bucks. Hell, it takes $90 bucks to fill up my Passat with these gas prices these days.
No more complaining. FlightBeam is a new developer and as such is already among the top 4 developers in this market. Some developers have been here for several years and don't even come close to this level of quality. You folks arguing about why it's 37 bucks instead of 27? You can't honestly look at these screenshots and say it's not worth more than $27 bucks. If you do, then this airport is not meant for you.
Maybe Blueprint will make a nice $27buck KPHX if they haven't already. This airport is worth every cent. and is for the serious flight simulation pilot. And when the FS9 version comes, (you can do it Amir!) I will pay every cent.
For those of you who who did buy it: It's tha bomb right? Tell us how much you like it! Oh yeah!
