KBOS is now dated

Recommended Posts

George Grimshaw's KBOS (Logan) is now officially dated. Delta Airlines opened their new Terminal A today, moving from Terminal C.http://www.boston.com/business/articles/20..._at_terminal_a/JetBlue is expected to move their operations from Terminal D to the open gates in C, with a long term plan to take over 11 gates. I would expect most ailines (all of JetBlue and AirTran) to move out of D. Calling D a terminal is generous.... It's more of a connector between C and E, the international terminal.

I wouldn't call the FS version of KBOS dated just because a new terminal is active and airlines have moved around. This happens all the time look at the changes at KDFW. :-roll The author of this airport has put allot of time into this project and I hope it holds up well into the next version of Flight Simulator. Updates can always be released to address changes occurring around the real airport...

It's not a nitpick nor is it a criticisim. It's one of the best sceneries out there- free or payware.Simply a statement of fact in this case, and the first major change to Logan in 30 years. Compare it to the opeining of the McNamara terminal at DTW...George represents the terminal under construction in his scenery, it's simply complete now and open.I'd love to see an upgrade to the scenery to reflect reality.Whn Heathrow opents T5, how many will be screaming for an update?Tim

Sounds like the Avsim overeact in progress. I dont think the guy was putting the scenery down. Just making a fact known. Some people need to calm down. Take your head out of the computer and interact with people and see that pointing out something isnt always putting it down.

Based on what I read in the first post and from the tag line, I disagree Andrew. It coud have been worded many different ways to convey that the real airport has been updated and he would like to see the scenery to reflect this, not basically saying the scenery version is "dated" which just doesn't sound nice at all and slightly on the rude side.I have it installed and it would be nice to see it reflect the changes, but an email (nice one) to George would have been my first step instead of this post as he really isn't onbligated to any changes.Regards, MichaelKDFWhttp://www.calvirair.com/mcpics/mcdcvabanner.jpgCalVirAir International

I have never seen the developer of such files ever reply to these and say how rude this post is. Yet so many get on and answer for the developer. The written word cannot always relay the exact emotion an author intends. Thats why I dont think people should overreact on someone else's behalf. Everybody should relax and just enjoy. This type of arguing gets us nowhere. Anyway the file is great so fly to KBOS and enjoy the scenery.

I already replied to a private email from Tim.An all new version of Boston is 'maybe' on my todo list. Dev on Boston will not start for at least 6months & will be a complete redesign from the ground up(including the new Term-A).However, I guess he wants it NOW. Delete it if it disgusts you so much. I don't have time for scenery right now. I'm tied to this desk making silly Playstation3 games for whining brats.george grimshaw

I agree with Michael in as much as the choice of the word "DATED" is what started making people defensive in this discussion. Simply change the word "dated" to perhaps "UPdated" and the whole tone of the post would have changed from one of a rather spoiled nature to one of an announcement from a fan of Logan airport and of freeware too (as he has stated in a later post).In any case, let's not get too defensive as the original poster did not mean anything by it... he simply did not realize the slight (and only slight) error in his choice of words.John
