Future addon airports for P3Dv4 should be like that., An entire zone, like Fly Tampa's Dubai or Kai Tak, Princess Julianna or DD's NY City or DD's Miami city or FS9, Flightzones Portland and Rhode Island, or Orbx San Diego, Orbx Sedona, Orbx KPSP (Palm Springs) , a complete area. Even if the airport is not "Mega".

I agree, and hope the casinos on Las Vegas Blvd and Freemont Street are modelled along with the airport.

I wonder how far along they are on development?

Well, looks like they're modeling some parts of the strip from that one shot.

If only someone just did an airport that's overlooked by Quality developers. KEWR.

Agreed! KEWR is long overdue ... I have come to thinking, that there must be a reason they won't / aren't doing it.... Such a shame...

Indeed, I currently only have FlyTampa Amsterdam, but do plan on expanding my library with FT airports.

My understanding is all of the trip and most of the surrounding area (Casino's) are going to be included with the airport.

Nice! Really looking forward to this.
Also KBOS, of course...

Fingers crossed for the Bunny Ranch too! :gaul:

It's nowhere near Vegas (it's outside Carson City) so you can uncross your fingers.

Not quite true.  The Bunny Ranch South is just west of Las Vegas in Pahrump.  But I doubt the scenery will extend that far either.

But any update of the Las Vegas Strip scenery needs to be at least equivalent to what Aerofly FS2 has done with it. It's the only current scenery.  Heck, addons for Vegas have been released for years that still don't have both Wynn's hotels, or the new City Center complex.  But they still have hotel/casinos that were torn down 8 years ago.

You should pick up US Cites: Las Vegas X. It has all of the above and the night environment is pretty nice.

I've lived out here since '03.  I bought it.  The City Center complex they "threw together" for it looks like a child with a box of 64 Crayolas drew the textures on the whole city center.  Nowhere near a quality texture product for the price of it.

Aerofly's FS2 is hands down the best Las Vegas Strip representation available today for accuracy and texture quality.  And it's not even an addon, but part of the main area in the sim.

But I own all of Fly Tampa's airports, and will most likely end up buying their KLAS too regardless.  My FS DreamTeam KLAS is "old" even with the recent update for the new terminal at the airport.

Lighten up, it was obviously a joke.

The problem with EWR is the NYC area which is already heavy in terms of sim objects and puts a large burden on CPU and hence fps. Even default NYC is a hog.

Hey man, I'm super chill, but thanks for your concern. 

I'm not one for "horny old man" humor, but whatever it takes to get your kicks is fine by me ;)
