Err - that scenery was released back in 2010 - so it's not really news.

Err..not everybody knew about it...I certainly didn't :)

Mitch, just keep posting freeware finds of this kind! I for one appreciate it. There are so many superb freeware offerings that no one can possibly keep track of all of them! Some of my favorite photoreals in Europe, ORBX quality: http://lhsimulations.com/freeware_zone/ & more here: http://www.freewarescenery.com/fs2004/hungary.html

 

If you don't know http://www.freewarescenery.com it's a site that has collected a lot of links to freeware scenery, organised by countries! The first stop to check for scenery!

Be sure to give a "head's up" whenever they finish Detroit KDTW.  I've fallen asleep a LONG time waiting for it!

If there is a better freeware (or payware?) airport for FS9 than the above, please let us know.  I'm amazed how well done it is.

Hi Sascha...so, you didn't know about this gem either?   Glad to post.  I actually was reading some reviews of Imaginesim KATL, this morning, and the reviewer made mention of this dev, and reference in comparison to this dev's KPHL and such devs as Imaginesim, Aerosoft, etc.

 

I highlighted the reference, and right-click Googled it.  The rest is history. I now have it across FS9, FSXDX10, P3D v2.4, and P3D v3.2.3

 

 Thanks for your above links...am just about to sip some coffee and go check them out.  Thanks, again, Sascha,,for your dev efforts. Frankly, EVO2015/16 made FS9 a equal-use time share across all my platforms, for I do fly them all equally.

 

Post Edit:  Sascha...yeppers...sure didn't know about these either. Thanks!   Ok...can there possibly be another hard drive acquisition later this year...yeah..probably so...with four active flight simulators on the system....lol.  Yeah...probably so....

There's actually a pinned topic in this forum called

The Best Freeware Airports and Scenery for FS9

and if you search it you will find KPHL referenced four times...

 

But topics like this throw up discussion which is great!

Sascha I thought I had all the Hungarian sceneries of note, but flipping through your list I see there's a bunch of photoreals I have missed.

So thanks for that, it's a tough call between the Hungarian and Czech scenery makers

Both are absolutely fantastic.

Well I didn't have any of the Czech stuff so thank you too!

Take your time to look at all the sceneries:A click onto the line "dalsich 6" will bring you the next six sceneries, and between them you will find very good ones for FS9.

I remember them saying Detroit will be for FS9. I wonder if that is still happening?

I've been close to the devs and a SunSkyJet Beta Tester for many years, and I'm confident their Detroit scenery has only been for FSX.

 

 

 

I've fallen asleep a LONG time waiting for it!

 

Yeah, those darned freeware developers!  They never deliver when we want something.  I for one want a refund.

 

 

The Detroit scenery is on hold due to unforeseen circumstances... and I think a lack of appreciation and a little disrespect towards the dev team.

 

 

Best wishes to all.

I'm confident that the scenery was originally announced to include FS2004

 

Your back-sided slam of any comment about freeware is unwarranted.  It does not become you.  It has taken a Loonnngggg time since announcing .... freeware or not.

 

Shaz et. al have always been held in the highest regard by anyone familiar with FS2004 scenery.  I don't know where you get the "disrespect" part.

 

All in all, I reject your reality and hope you can stay away from your heavily-biased comments ..... and stick to the reality of facts.

This Philly scenery is outstanding, even by 2016 standards. I had it in fsx, but for some reason in p3d the Delaware river turns pink at a distance and I never did find a fix for it.

We FS2004 users never had that problem at all ..... even by 2016 standards.

Agreed, it worked great in 2004, fsx and even p3d, with just that one glitch. I'm sure there is a p3d fix, I just never really got around to looking!

What we now have is another developer that is "Crawfishing" from FS2004 ...... very sad.

 

Wasn't that way when the project started out (equal to or before 2011 according to the forum posts).  The Dark Side has taken another star system.

The development is for FSX but I use it in P3DV3 without any issues.

For FS9 I think where we are in the development of FS platforms we may need to revisit the backward compatibility...

Also I would ask everyone to hold on the Beta requests as two items are still missing which are essential to the scenery and Ian has promised to send them to me soon.

I am running it in all my two P3D installs,  P3D  v2.4 and 3.2.3. No pink river here.  It must be a local scenery conflict issue on your system. Layers?

Hi Ses,

 

I didn't get the pink river either - you are missing the highway bridges though - right ???

Still no problems sighted on my single FS2004 install.  Seems all there and working well.  Textures are matching all other surroundings.

There's actually a pinned topic in this forum called

The Best Freeware Airports and Scenery for FS9

and if you search it you will find KPHL referenced four times...

 

I pulled 14 gig of scenery from the quoted thread alone. Same thread then resulted in finding my way to masses of other airport scenery not specifically mentioned in the thread. Great place to start for anyone with many fantastic links and mentions. I haven't even had a chance to visit KPHL yet!

Excellent! that's what pinned topics are all about.

Don't forget to add your pick of your new bunch!

Well I guess if the Detroit scenery will not be made for FS9 we will have to use the ImagineSim scenery (it's freeware now). Although that scenery does not have the North Terminal in it (it is shown as under construction in the scenery).
