Video Trailer - Aerosoft/FSDG Kastellorizo!

FSX/P3D. Aerosoft/FSDG have posted a fantastic video trailer of yet another Greek scenery project, Kastellorizo (LGKJ)! The project will cover the entire island and release is expected early summer. Greece really is getting spoiled these days with so many fantastic upcoming releases. Video link inside...

The developer is also currently working Thessaloniki X! What a nice surprise this announcement is. Along with the upcoming Skiathos X by 29Palms something tells me I'm going to be spending more and more time in this beautiful part of the world!

Welcome news! Greece really is an amazing part of the world and I'm glad to see many scenery developers view it worthy to cover to such an extent!

I'm pretty sure there are lots of Greeks who will buy all these Greek sceneries.. I'm not complaining about it, but there are lot more important and never been done places in world for simulators... What about India ? What about Japan ? What about China ? What Russia or Turkey ? Some airports in these countries handle more flights than all airports in Greece, maybe double. Nice touristic destinations however they should also look another destinations.

Aparently developers see that they make enough money from Greek airports. Guess it has to do with the fact that many Europeans (and not only) have visited Greece at least once.

Aviation wise it's one of the best places for airliners or small planes for island hopping. Many airports close to each other with interesting approaches and some of the most scenic places in the world.

I would love to see a Rhodos (the whole island)- there is a Main airport - a GA airport and a Microlight (very, very short) strip just south of their acropolis. A nice harbour for some seaplane work and lots of high ground. Yup - I'd buy that!!

I have to agree with ALX WNT.
Can't see why making so many greek airports when there are so many places around the world left out. It's hard to believe those small greek islands would sell moren than a Mega Airport Moscow, Beijing, Shangai,Tokyo Narita and/or Haneda,Osaka's Kansai Istanbul,Kuala Lumpur, etc.

George LGAV,

Like i said i personally love approaches from sea, so these airports might be purchases for me. The thing is, why focus only Greek airports, airports which most of the sim world possibly wont have the interest. Just look at Dubai from FT, it stayed number 1 purchase on simmarket, how many weeks ? If the memory serves me right, it was more than 2 weeks. Considering not every tourist is simulation user, but most of the simulation users want to fly different destinations and sometime places they've lived or want to see, i dont see any point to make every airport in Greece. I do think Greek simulation users have some other problems rather than complaining about 'why we dont have island x airport'

Anonymous gave very good list above, the list i've been thinking when i'm writing my first message in here. I think Shangai approach will be much more spectacular than approach of Skiathos or some another same'ish sea approach of another Greek Airport. Washington DC, Moscow, Seoul these are couple of major cities which we dont have proper scenery in FSX/P3D (I think same for FS9) Imagine these cities with FSDT, FT or Flightbeam quality. I think sim users prefer these ones over little airports of Greece.

FSDT or flightbeam doesn't do anything else than the airport. So the airport will be great but the sorroundings will be default.

1. Kastellorizo has a runway length less than 800m.

Does any serious addon aircraft exist, that can land there?

I doubt it.

Do people with no serious addon aircraft addons buy addon sceneries?

I doubt it.

Then who's going to be this one?

2. The last project of FSDG (Heraklion) had very poor fps performance with a realistic mesh-elevation (eg FS-Global), because they simply did not test it for performance with a realistic mesh. Greece (and other regions) have high mountains, and close to the airports. So flying without realistic mesh there, is simply not realistic. So is FSDG does not change this attitude, then they are going to have even lower sales.

You are absolutely right. Only REAL sim pilots buy addon scenery. How else do developers stay in business? Seriously, I haven't bought any Greek sceneries, but may buy one or two just to test the waters. Would really like to see some of the other major airports mentioned get some love though. td

FSDG Heraklion has really good performance and tons many tools to adjust it too. FSglobal has no impact on your fps either and is known to be a problem for a LOT of other addons. Get a grip my friend.
