UBBB Baku is being added to the mix

Recommended Posts

Baku? Never knew there was payware demand for such airport. However it's a much more interesting and better decision than to remodel boring KJFKs and EGLLs all over and over again.

I'm almost sure the offer will generate the demand.

:Applause:

(Nevertheless, I will also buy Stanislaws NY Airports. :blush: )

Isn't the New York airports very high on frames? Reason I avoid american airspace is not because of politics but due their airports are more demanding and would bring my laptop to it's knees.

 

Nevertheless, I bought a few Drzewiecki sceneries and not hard on frames at all (for FS9 that is).

Off topic: It seems that in FSX NY Airports are indeed hard on frames, but the FS9 version was announced to be a rather light version. It will contain terrain and six airports, and in my experience this may well achieve a better frame rate than to combine several single airport add-ons from different developers, maybe some freeware scenery on top of all, as certainly quite many simmers do at NY.

Count me in!  Baku is brilliant!

 

Unlike most Americans we Australians are outward looking.  Perhaps its that we reside in a peaceful island continent remote from other parts of the world and, therefore, are curious to see what else is on offer.

 

Personally I fly all over the world, even America (and Russia.)  The world is a beautiful place.  You should try it some time gwillmot.   :rolleyes:

No, he is from Kazakhstan.

 

Azerbaijan is in east turkey, near armenia and georgia.

No he was meant to be from Kazakhstan, but, btw., I would like to see and to buy a new Almaty scenery as well (the one we have is quite well, but outdated).

Kazakhstan is nothing like depicted in Borat. That movie was nothing more but an insult to the country and in fact Kazakhstan is a very modern country, more so than many countries in Eastern Europe and Asia.

 

edetriot, I suppose panels still not available? Some developers of the Il-76 on the Russian forum were puzzled about these panels along with the night lighting.

Great news! Baku will be an interesting destination from a variety of airports, much like Tallinn is now. And I see that the new Moscow UUEE is also available this morning by the same developer for FS9.

This is great news, and a great choice of airports!    Baku is a very busy, interesting destination, not least due to all of the oil and gas exploration and refinement that goes on in Azerbaijan.

I second the notion that it's far better to get intestering locations like Baku and Almaty than dull same old same old representation of bland US or Major European airports.    ....and I have a particular passion for ex-Soviet cities / countries.

 

It is indeed good to get somewhere different. 

PS.... Yes that was a very silly, fictional representation of Kazakhstan as a small village in the Borat film .... but I don't think it was intended to insult.   To most westerners' ignorance, they believe Eastern Europe and ex-Soviet countries are like that.     Nothing could be further from the truth.  Kazakhstan is the richest of all of the Central Asian countries, and has such vast, unexplored oil and gas reserves that it's supplies will only just be broken in to, when America runs out.

a new Almaty scenery

 

I certainly second that Harald and would add it's neighbour, Astana, an airport I am quite fond of.

 

Developers please take note ... but include an FS9 version please.

Appliance, I have suggested Almaty to Stanislaw already some time ago, as well as Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan, and Batumi, Mestia and/or Kutaisi in Georgia: He could use his static planes to model the vast scrapyards of old Soviet planes in the former two. But I'm glad he has finally discovered the Caucasus somehow!

 

Just only one word more about "Borat" from me. I think everyone understood what the film was not about: Kazakhstan...

 

And now that I think about it: I newer have flown to Atlanta Airport in Georgia (US)... B)
