Uk2000 Airports sale - min 25% off

Recommended Posts

I have 18 of the 21 UK2000 Xtreme airports. I have not yet bought Southend and I have versions of the other two by different developers.

 

I reckon the UK2000 Xtreme airports are great products and value for money.

 

I have them installed over the four FTX Regions covering the UK. I don't have FTX Global.

 

I don't recall  having any problems with the interaction between my UK2000 airports and my FTX Regions. Some of the airports have an installation option to choose installation with FTX scenery.

 

In the FTX Compatibility sub-forum of the FTX/Orbx Forum and on the UK2000 Forum, there are posts dealing with compatibility between the products of these two developers.

Are you looking for large, busy airports? Stansted Xtreme (Version 4) was released this year, and is a great improvement on the older version. The same can be said of Birmingham Xtreme (Version 3) and Heathrow Xtreme (Version 3). Gary will also be making new versions of Gatwick and Manchester in 2016.

Looking at their site I see:

 

single orders   25% off,

double   "         30% off

four or more "  40% off 

http://www.uk2000scenery.org/forum/index.php

 

Looking at their forums, lots of problems reported by folks with ORBX EU installed. Not major but things like floating buildings and trees. Not most buildings and trees, just a few, and not every airport. But it all depends on your willingness to accept that if you have FTX/ORBX EU. But I would examine the forum before purchase. UK2000 divides that forum into subforums based on individual airports they sell. 

 

I have all UK Xtreme's products installed except Luton and have experienced no major problems with Orbx. I use FTX Global, FTX OpenLC EUR and the regional FTX scenery for England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Just make sure there are no competing AFCAD files for the UK Xtreme airports (as you should with any addon scenery) and, if there are, just delete or deactivate them. I personally look forward to and have no hesitation in purchasing every UK Xtreme airport release, as their quality is IMHO consistently good and they are a real bargain at the current sale price.

First I was looking for the main London ones (heathrow, gatwick, stansted and city) not sure about those but you mentioned teo, but then maybe pthers should not be missed?

Carlos,

 

IMO, none of the UK2000 Xtreme airports should be missed! They are all of a consistently high quality.

I bought the five newest ones last weekend: Prestwick, Birmingham, Stansted, Southend and Jersey, which being based in London felt gave me a few good options for UK regional operations! The quality is excellent, and compared to some of the older ones like Gatwick, it seems they are a bit easier on performance - although still brilliant Gatwick for me is a bit of a fps hog!

Are there any plans for any airports that get an V4 Update? Is Stansted the only product with an update, or still any other are in line?

Thanks, good hint!

 

So, I think I won't buy Gatwick in this case yet. There is a point in the airport list called "Remake", does that mean all other airports will have an remake version, too?

The major airports get remakes because of their importance and popularity. This includes Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, East Midlands, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Bristol. Gary decided to expand his range of Xtreme products several years ago, so the rest only have one version so far (or are in the pipeline to be done in the near future).

Thanks for your detailed answer. So Stansted, Birmingham and Heathrow just got a new version; remains: Manchester, Gatwick, East Midland, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Bristol.

 

What do you think which of them will be done rather soon as in the ende of 2016/17? No need for any release, I am sure he's not so far yet. Just an estimation, which of them will be the first. Will buy according to this information. :-)

Gatwick and Manchester are definitely on the cards for 2016, but I do not know any more than that at the moment.

Are the UK2000 VFR Airfields Version 2 volumes 1& 2 fully P3DV3/3.1 Compatable?

 

I recently purchased Southend, Birmingham and the superb Prestwick... to add to my xtreme collection...great airports!, but really would like to add vfr airfields to the mix...I use Orbx Eng, Wales & Sco...so looking for reasonable integration...

Bought my first UK2000 airport today (Bimingham) and I'm very satisfied with the quality. I really like it. Very immersive. The coloring is right, the level of detail is excellent. This is a developer who certainly deserves a little bit more attention and credit. I will certainly buy the new version of Gatwick scheduled for next year. Maybe I pick up another scenery in the current sale. Thinking about Edinburgh. Is it Prepar3d v3 compatible?

I use it just fine in P3D v3.1. Gary recently updated the installers of all of his Xtreme airports to include P3D.

I currently run Gatwick, Southend, Belfast, Glasgow, Manchester and Jersey in P3D v3.1 and they work and look awesome.

How do people find performance at Heathrow V3? The attention to detail is fab but it took a lot of tuning in my setup to get it to play nice with my complex aircraft and ASN weather!

Any payware rendition of Heathrow seems to be VAS heavy, it's simply the scale of the place combined with its proximity to other big airports (LGW, LTN, LCY which you may have addon scenery for) and London itself (with its dense autogen and custom buildings).

 

IIRC, Aerosoft's rendition requires more VAS than UK2000 Xtreme. My friend's FSX easily OOM'd flying the PMDG NGX out of UK2000 Heathrow with GEX+UTX+REX and UK2000 London City, had to turn some sliders down and disable EGLC to get it stable again.

Just adding to Christopher Low's posts about Xtreme Airports scheduled for 2016, I recall reading somewhere in the past couple of days (I have been back searching but I can't find the reference) that Humberside will be released on 16 January.

 

There are many screenshots of the forthcoming product on the UK2000 Forum at http://www.uk2000scenery.org/forum/index.php?topic=8413.msg58850#new
