Amazing quality.  I've been astounded at the freeware airports available in XP that surpass quite a bit of payware in FSX.

 

Thanks for the HU.

If we ever get a decent 737NG for this sim, I don't know how much use my other sims will get. it just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for the heads up Ryan.

PMDG's is probably at least 3-5 years away, so I'm hoping FlightFactor will take up the gauntlet.

They would sell a ton of B738 (w / fms), and would be far more versatile simming-wise than an A350.

while i personally believe that the PMDG will not take that long, i think FF will not release a 738 at all, they still have alot on the plate for the A350 like the sid/stars and then some. What is more likely and alot more reasonable is that ixeg, now that they basically said it will come out 2015, will provide a paid upgrade to the 738 much like pmdg offers an upgrade for the -5 and -6. While there still is alot to be done the big foundations, like the fmc and other systems, are basically there with the 733. So you are talking maybe about a year of work instead of 2-3 years.

I just need IXEG to release theirs and my 737 kick will be over. I would prefer PMDG bring the Queen rather than another 737, especially if the keep the same flightdeck layout.

Now two great airports to run between...Palm Springs, and San Diego!   Good stuff....

 

It simply amazes me, at what quality of graphics XPX.x can pump out...

 

Palm Springs,

San Diego,

Los Angeles

San Francisco 

Phoenix Sky Harbor

Juneau, Alaska

 

...and all of the above were gifts to the community...rendered out at commercial quality!

 

The devs, are diamonds...the each of them!

If you like flying between KSAN and KPSP, grab Bermuda Dunes (KUDD) and Cochran/Thermal (KTRM) and you'll have two additional mostly custom airports (thermal has some lower-rez hangars I'll swap out later).  Thermal is undergoing some construction and when that's completed and there are photos, I'll update it.

Are they at the .org?

 

Thanks for the head's up!

The TRM airport gave me a CTD with some errors....  do you have a direct link to your version?  Maybe I was using another version.

 

edit:  I found your airports...will test again

edit again:  I downloaded both your TRM and UDD - no errors or CTD sweet!

Good...glad you got them to work.  Those airports are less exciting than palm springs, admittedly, but I tried to keep them true to life.  The palm springs scenery I had been using had high-rises (hotels?) and when I looked on google earth, I realized that's not what palm springs looks like, at least not around the airport.  If you guys see anything out of place or have suggestions, drop me a note.  I've made a few corrections to PSP so when I get more I'll upload a refresh.  So far they're mostly things few would probably find.  -- Greg

Just a heads-up...I uploaded a new overhauled KPSP, cleaned the whole thing up quite a bit.  It requires the new MisterX library, so make sure you download/install that.  And KUDD was updated a few weeks ago...more clean up.  And excuse the self-promotion, but there is also a new San Luis Obispo up for those that have an interest (it's actually in a pretty cool location...just ignore the sloped runway...I'm told it's not quite so obvious in real life)...grab the version without the new terminal...well I prefer that one.  You get to choose once you click the download button.  Enjoy!

Yes it's labeled 2.0 with a list of the changes.  I found performance to be better overall even with adding some new items.  I was able to reduce the texture sizes while at the same time increasing the resolution (basically, more efficient use of space in the texture files themselves).  So while most of the buildings will look the same at a distance, as you get closer, details like doors/windows will be much clearer and realistic.  And everything but the terminal buildings were rebaked to have better ground level shadowing.  Let me know what you think.  The night lighting was also overhauled...using more realistic light objects for all the buildings (except terminals which were already good in that regard).  I'm thinking about a terminal revamp for later...but not sure anyone cares lol.  I hope it works as I'll be out for a week...test ASAP!  :D

 

Edit: There's a link in the post above.
