ORBX ENNK Narvik - Where is the sloped runway?

Recommended Posts

Back in April 2013 when the Narvik developer introduced his ENNK project, he detailed a sloped runway:

In 2014 even John Venema, the ORBX CEO, commented on this project's sloped runway.

Various screenshots followed detailing the development with the airport's sloped runway.

I haven't seen any recent screenshots here either before or after yesterday's release of Narvik showing any sloped runway.

 

Did the Narvik sloped runway get cancelled or is this an option that nobody has turned on in their ENNK control panel?

 

I ask as I was really looking forward to a bit more realism than the standard, boring and unrealistic flat runways that sceneries usually seem to have.

In the orbx forum it was answered that they decided to go with a flat runway.

Wow so for the last 3 years Orbx have been teasing us with various messages and screenshots detailing a sloped runway and then when Narvik finally gets released after many years of us all eagerly waiting, then there is NO SLOPED RUNWAY!!!

 

I am so very disappointed, what a joke that they advertised something they finally didn't deliver!

You seriously can't be taking this so badly. What's the big issue?

 

The scenery package is amazing with or without a sloped runway. I guess you just get to miss out.

It was a promised feature that for me was a major selling point of the Narvik scenery package.

 

I fly in the real-world and flat runways don't exist, every runway has its own unique bumps and curves, some more, some less.

 

I find it hugely disappointing that such realistic scenery is paired with such an unrealistically flat runway, it kills the immersion factor for me.

 

I can only hope that they will make good on their initial promise and deliver this in a future patch.
