Looks great. Hoping Gary will do Leeds Bradford next.
Gary has already said that's not the case, he is spending the next couple of months making updates for previous sceneries then moving onto Edinburgh and Glasgow as long as Playsims/Horizon have released the appropriate Scottish photoscenery by then. Leeds is at least 6 months off I think, there is a half decent version in VFR Airfields Vol3 if you are desperate for it now.

Now briefly reviewed by George Grimshaw himself.http://secure.simmar...nx-rp-6083.htmlSometimes one sentence from particular person tells you more than a 10000 word review. :(
That says a lot about George too. This is another UK2000 gem. Great textures, great fps, wonderfully animated traffic. And all at a price that you would get for one buggy scenery from another developer that I imagine everyone is familiar with...

Already bought it, didn't install it yet, didn't fly to or from it yet, but it looks very good. I really appreciate the cargo operations from that place, especially that DHL Air UK uses the A300B4, which is what the Simcheck A300 models. Can't wait to do some EGNX - EDDP.

Been playing about in it tonight, looks absolutely drop-dead gorgeous!!! Good value price wise I think too like all the uk2000 stuff.The ground detail is excellent, some neat vehicle movements about the place, building detail is great, the photo real looks fantastic from above, really very pleased so far, and FPS hit seems to be minimal even with 100% AI traffic.

It's better than "half-decent".

I'd buy it but uk2000 airports shimmer too much!
There must be something wrong with your graphics card or settings, because UK2000 airports do not shimmer on my PC (apart from one issue with Bristol from medium distance, which is apparently something to do with the high resolution 25cm per pixel base image). I am not sure if this can be corrected or not, but I know that Bristol is one Xtreme airport that will be getting an update. I am a beta tester for Gary's airports, so I have all of them.

I agree with Christopher. My London Xtreme Heathrow doesn't shimmer, unlike the Imaginesim sceneries I have. I think George (or Martin?) at FlyTampa came out with a small executable that mip mapped all the texture files in one of his sceneries (St Maarten I think).Is there a mip mapping tool (apart from the one in the SDK) that can be downloaded and run in every folder so we can mip map our sceneries, like my imaginesim Singapore? The Imaginesim product (especially WSSS) is beautiful.This scenery looks so real from the screenshots!!!! It has me sucked in!!!I think also the approach lights at night all work brightly? I will go check my FSX and FS9 versions now. I think approaching in late evening I had very little brightness on the ILS system lights. At full night I think it is better? But the scenery of UK2000 is something to drool over!!!Daniel

I've just installed mine and it looks quite nice. Like most UK2000 products, the scenery doesn't go much further than the airport boundary. Otherwise, I quite like this airport, very nicely made.Cheers,Clem

Actually if the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station is included (and it is displayed in one of NyxxUK's screen shots) that facility is actually something like ten miles away in the vague direction of Nottingham along the A53...and yes I live about 30 miles away and visit the airport on a regular basis.I wonder if someone might be kind enough to post an image of the car park. Silly I know but over the last year EGNX sadly went from being one of the most easy-access airports around to a rather annoying money-grubbing shambles where there is now "VIP parking", "taxi's only", and so forth. Plus you have to pay a minimum of one pound even for a 5 minute drop-off where this used to be free :( .I'm just curious which version Gary got in there!

Ted, sounds awfully like Leeds. Silly drop off/payment rules and now cones and traffic bullies to stop you dropping off in the side roads nearby. Bah.

Yes, that is true, as you can see from Julian's picture. It is a step further from their usual!Clem

I can confirm that Gary has included a model of the Ratcliffe power station in his East Midlands Xtreme package.

Why the question mark? Ted seemed to be unsure if the power station was included in the East Midlands Xtreme package. I am confirming it.
