Same here. I saw some development shots he posted a few months ago and if my memory serves me right it looked like the buildings were in place and the ground textures were done but the buildings themselves had to be textured and the small details to the airport had to be added.

Hi Guys,It's still under serious development. I'm in the process of tweaking all of the ground textures and adding in all of the gate area textures. Shez has made all of the terminal buildings and has textured all of the roofs and is in the process of creating the building textures. There's a fair amount to still be finished, but it's coming together.I have also begun to rework the ground layout to be compatible in FSX (no serious promises there yet - but I hope to make it happen - time permitting)Here's an overview of the F term:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/190686.jpgAnd an overview of the terminal/parking complex (forgive the miscolored tile):http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/190687.jpgI'll post more photos after the major ground rework is complete.Cheers,Ian

Thats great looking. I also believe I saw in a previous thread that the Sports complex will be included. It has changed alot since Fs2004 was released. Just wondering if this is still planned.Thanks

Also planned are updates to the Philly skyline (new Comcast tower) and accurately placed bridges.Cheers,Ian

Ian -- I'm just completely and utterly psyched, I'm so excited to see this! I work in Center Cityand I have the KPHL by Simflyer's and, well, enough said huh? Needless to say, my "home" airport right now is KBOS. :-)

Ian,Have either you or Shez been in contact with Oliver Pabst about maybe getting this AES'ed? I would gladly buy credits to have AES at this airport.

And here all along I thought Shez was a 'loner' when it came to modeling. :)

Thanks so much for showing some updated shots! Its great to know that this project is alive and well. In the KHOU scenery the taxiways were custom but the runways were default textures. Are there custom runway textures in that screenshot posted above or am I just seeing things:)

But I guess we'll see when we get closer to release.Cheers,Ian

As the original poster, thanks to all for joining in with enthusiasm as we anticipate this long awaited airport scenery.Still two questions for Ian:1. Approximate release date - August- September - October ???2. Will airport be setup to depict realistic arrival and departure runways? i.e. Departing Rwy 27L or 9L. Arrivals 27R or 9R.Always drove me nuts that default airport had aircraft landing on 27L and departing 27R.Can't wait!!Kevin

Kevin -- that can be easily fixed by replacing the AFCAD with one of many in the AVSIM library. I have the Simflyers KPHL and both of those runways are used appropriately, and any addon AFCAD can easily be fixed using Lee Swordy's software, so I don't think that's a big issue either way.I'm very interested in getting this scenery as soon as possible, too!As Homer Simpson once said: "15 MINUTES??? But I Want it NOW!" :-D

We just keep working on it bit by bit. That said, I have no problem being transparent and showing screenshots on request.And I haven't really dug into the afcad to set up the runways properly. I'm sure we'll have it working about right when it's time for release.Cheers,Ian

Oh, yeah, and suites for 2 mil+! At thosse prices, I'll take two!No, but my office is right across the street and they've had 22nd street blocked off for 2 1/2 years now. That's the street I enter my parking garage on -- as much as their construction has messed this town up I would HOPE they'd make it into any new sceneries! :-)They're only 1 of 3 luxury condo construction sites going up around town.

I am sure there is a way to have aircraft arrive and depart on the correct runways, I am just stupid and do not know how to do it LOL!!

Well I know its a lil more to ask but do you think you could update UPENN buildings especially with franklin field. Also The Naval yard and if its possible the EL (Market - Frankford Line) when it's elevated above the ground, ex. between 69th and market and 45th and market. that would be the greatest addon ever if so. O yea they are building the cira center 2 right now thats suppose to be about twice as tall as the firts one. there also are talks about a new building that will be taller than the comcast center but they are still in talking and are working nor close to working on it for a while. If you need info and pictures for buildings then you can find plenty here.http://www.phillyskyline.com/. Mahalo.

All this would be great, but first and foremost I don't want to ask for too much and overwhelm the poor guy. As long as I get an airport better than the old simflyer's one I'm using now, I would definitely make a generous cash donation for Ansari's efforts!Thanks again, Ansari, for working on this. BTW, if you're adding all this in any way, there's this really hot blonde I pass every afternoon on 22nd Street, and if you could just add her into your scenery . . . :-jumpy
