Top 3 most impressive addon airports?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, many addon airports are very, very nice but for those that have bought or seen a lot of addon airports, which specific airports do you consider the absolute cream of the crop in tiny-est details, impressive textures, jam packed busy with objects/people/trucks/cars/dogs/underwear/things, animations, lighting, sounds, atmosphere, etc?

 

BTW, doesn't have to be a huge city airport, could just be a grass runway type that made your jaw drop.

Probably a lot of the ORBX stuff. Well actually pretty much all of the ORBX stuff.

 

For other airports my favorites are :

 

UK2000 EGBB, EGLL and EGLC. (they're all good. That's just the three I have)

 

Aerosoft EHAM

 

Flytampa is good

 

Orxysim too (Can't wait for there YYZ!)

 

I'm sure I'll think of more but that's all for now

 

Cheers

I'm not into large hubs these days, did it for more than 20 years and now I am mostly flying low and slow. (Blame it to Flight). But still fly the Citation X to big boy grounds.

 

BTW, doesn't have to be a huge city airport, could just be a grass runway type that made your jaw drop.

 

For small grass airfields ORBX's 49OR Lands Inn is superb, you'll get people, dogs, butterflies, horses, cows, etc. (part of the OG39 Longview Ranch scenery)

 

For small airports their freebee KHQM Bowerman is a must

 

The way it's going, I'll end up buying all their NA stuff.

 

Cheers

I like those scenery addons that go outside the airport fence, like Miami City 2012 and Aerosoft's US Cities series - especially the newer ones that keep expanding the area like Los Angeles.

 

I like a couple of the Orbx better than others, some of the airports are nothing special at all, but the surrounding areas add a lot to the party, like Anacortes 74S, nice bridge and refinery but the airport sucks. I like Harvey, S43 for a small town airport and I like Ketchikan in Alaska, not for the airport as much as the large scenic neighborhood is well done.

 

My overall favorite of the Orbx bunch is Jefferson County, 0S9, a nice small local one runway but in a very scenic area. I will probably add Diamond Point during the next sale as it almost joins the area and has a grass strip and a small town paved runway with a good view.

 

For just big airports, my favorites are Fort Lauderdale KFLL, and San Francisco, KSFO. These are FSDT and FlightBeam editions.

 

For international I l ike UK2000 Extreme EGLL for Heathrow and Aerosoft's EDDF Frankfurt Mega series.

I like several of the "little ones" from Orbx and the "big ones" FSDT KDFW, UK2000 EXtreme - EGLL and London City. Of course the biggies are hard on my little computer.

1) Aerosoft Gibraltar X

 

2) FlyTampa Princess Juliana

 

3) Aerosoft Dillingham X (along with Megascenery Hawaii, might as well count all the FSDT and Newport Hawaii coverage of the island chain in there as well! :lol: )

 

Can't argue at all with the other choices up here, they are all greats of FS.

My personal favorite is definitely FSDT's KFLL, followed closely by their KLAS and KDFW. Not harsh on the frames and beautiful.

In my opinion:

 

FlyTampa - everything, but especially KaiTak (and my home airport Vienna, of course :rolleyes:

ORBX - all airports. My fav is Ketchikan.

Aerosoft - Heraklion

FSDT - KLAS, LSGG

 

(Listed in random order)

FlightBeam, FSDT, Fly Tampa, UK2000, ORBX, and a few from Aerosoft. I have spent lots of money on all of the above and don't regret one purchase.

I would have to go with:

Kai Tak - Fly Tampa

KLAX - FSDT

EGKK (London Gatwick) - UK2000

 

I would also give a special mention to the hopefully soon to be out Helsinki (EFHK) from Aerosoft. The previews look amazing.

FSDreamTeam - KLAX

Aerosoft Fairbanks

ORBX

 

I think you said that already...

 

Hmm, what are the best at the moment in my view ?

I uninstalled Aerosoft EGLL and EHAM due to unaccpetable frame rate hits....

Installed EGLL UK2000 and liked it

VTSP by Asian Airport Sceneries is one of my definite favorites at the moment

and then of course the sceneries by Pacific Islands Simulation

they have so much atmosphere - I could just sit there forever and look at the vegetation and the palm leaves moving... <G>
