An up to date ORD, that is.

The screenshots look promising, but I haven’t seen their work firsthand.

Will try this group instead. With FSDT new KCLT I have white lines all over the ground at night when using my taxi light on my aircraft. Brought it up to Umberto and he said I and others that have it need to be at 16x AF which I already am at. Yet FT, Flightbeam and others don't have it. Not willing to buy their ORD as the same issue is present at their KSDF as well. Makes flying at night in any of FSDT P3dv4 scenery terrible.

This is fantastic news.  It'll be my first purchase from them so I'm very interested in the quality.

Whoa, this is looking great. That taxi bridge going over I-190 is looking real. Bring it on!

I wasn't aware of this developer.  I think I'll wait to see what FSDT does with ORD, but might try CVG. It's good to see some competition regardless.

I am not all that convinced that ORD is on the high priority list for FSDT to be honest. At least this dev has something to show for as is. I'm excited.

Competition is always good and hopefully we will have two good options for KORD.  Besides look and feel, curious to see which developer keeps their product close to its real counterpart.

Btw, are we sure this is for P3D? This looks like an X-Plane development to me from what I saw on their FB page.

EDIT: Never mind, I just read the announcement, it is for P3D. sigh

I saw that also but under it it says

"P3D V4 is a major step forward for the ESP Platform in allowing scenery developers to create scenery that it is more detailed than ever and runs better than ever before. After much deliberation, we've chosen to embrace the capabilities of this platform and begin developing our airports for P3D V4 in parallel with XPlane 11! "

KORD will be nice to see.  I'd be curious to see when this and FSDT is release.  Like Drumcode said, the FSDT ORD doesn't have anything to show other than "we are working on it for 2018", so it will be interesting to see which one surfaces first for this long awaited airport.  I've I'm a betting man, I bet we won't see anything until late 2018.

Apparently Skyline is 75% completed, that's as of January 4th.

Finally a developer has had the courage of doing KORD. It will definitely be a money maker for them which will be well deserved.

Their scenery models look at heckuva more realistic than FSDT. As long as performance is there I will get this version.

They also have KSNA for xplane 11. I wonder if they will release that for p3d v4. I do have latinVFR's which is a great, but it would be nice to see a comparison there.

Does anyone think that the shot of the tower and of where the Delta plane is parked doesn't look to scale?  I fly out of ORD monthly and can't picture that terminal or the tower looking like that.  The bridge looks great though.  I'm not knocking anything but can't picture these shots in my head.

Couldn't agree more.  Good luck to them

The old fsdt has problems in scale also. The south cargo ramp is modeled too small, it is impossible to fit jumbo aircrafts and still have room to taxi between them!

It's not just AF 16x, it's also the fact you are seeing that issue more than you are supposed to, because you are have reduced the texture size to 2K, so you are missing one mipmap step compared what we tested/designed the scenery for. We assumed that in 2017, every video card should handle 4K easily (with "4K", meaning "4K textures", NOT 4K video resolution) 

In any case, the whole issue would be entirely moot for all our future sceneries, which will be designed from the ground up to be P3D V4 only.

Everything strange you see on our current sceneries, it's related ONLY to the requirement to be stil compatible with FSX, in a way that we have some objects that are native (=just compiled with the P3D SDK), but the scenery has been overall designed from the ground up to work for FSX as well and not use FS8 code at the same time, which is what makes it "different" compared to similar offerings by other known developers.

This will go away, entirely, with FSDT KORD V2, which is being designed right from the start to run on P3D V4 ONLY (and or any another simulator). People seems to forget that we started working on KCLT in early 2015, and back then P3D4 wasn't even announced, we only assumed it could be 64 bit, but even that was entirely up in the air, it was only in late 2016 that we finally got hold of the SDK, like everybody else, which means no scenery that's on the market today (unless it's something that was made very quickly), can claim to be really designed for P3D4.

"Designed right from the start" is not the same as "recompiled with the P3D4 SDK".

The reason why we haven't show much of KORD V2, it's not obviously because it's of a "low priority" for us, but simply because we are redoing it totally from scratch and we want to take the time to do it right, and to be ready for the next big airport update. No sense trying to save something which was originally made in 2008 (for FS9) and patched in 2011, that's why we haven't released another update: this airport deserves a total makeover.
