Terminal Kit (many pics)

Recommended Posts

While this doesn't seem to get much attention the new Terminal Kit is a major improvement for Lego Brick Airports. It will probably help to create much more detailed airports and reduce the "all default airports look the same" effect. There also is an interesting tutorial video by Jan Vogel.

Today I decided to download a few airports from the Scenery Gateway that are not yet part of X-Plane but probably will be added in the next beta version. Featuring CYVR (Vancouver International), I tried to create a few screenshots to compare the current default airport and the upcoming default airport that makes use of the new terminal kit:

Current default:

Upcoming default:

Cessna_172SP_83.jpg

Current default:

Upcoming default:

Here are a few additional screenshots that showcase whats currently possible with the Lego Brick system and the new Terminal Kit:

Airport ZSHC (Hangzhou Xiaoshan International):

Airport ZPPP (Kunming Changshui Intl):

This just got me exited and I had to share it. Sorry if I bored you :smile:.

Nothing boring about it! That's a huge improvement over the old style.


Is it done yet? When will it be released? Will it be freeware or payware? How much will it be? Any updates on the progress? Will it work for FSX? What's the minimum requirements? Can I be a beta tester?

So - in an attempt to get familiar with WED (once again big thumps up to Jan for his tutorial videos on the subject) - I started tinkering with this stuff today. To my surprise I noticed that the documentation page has been updated the other day and now shows 4 different wall styles (glass and steel - as seen in the screenshots above, concrete, beige/yellowish bricks and red bricks) for all the facade types. This is getting better and better :smile:. Besides - whoever maintains that documentation page - he/she does a fantastic job - it is very well arranged, extensive and helpful.

Unfortunately the new wall styles don't show up in WED yet. I guess I will have to wait for an update to get those.

They've come a long way with it for sure. Part of me wishes for more though - the GA side of things could really use more love. But then the other part of me that enjoys NOT being addicted to WED is rather hoping they stop there. :happy:

This is a preview for the upcoming X-Plane version 11.20beta (one step up from 11.20vr6 preview that we are on now). That beta will include new art assets (new variations of the terminal kit and a few more VERY NICE surprises), new Gateway airports and much more...

Cheers, Jan

By "... a few more VERY NICE surprises ..." I guess you were talking about the customizable jetways? That's another very nice addition indeed. I am also amazed by the amount of new (1315) and updated (305) scenery gateway airports in this release.

Yep, thats what I had in mind.

I agree - the pace (and quality) of submissions is rising very nicely - if things keep going this way, we will have most airports fleshed out in the near future!

Cheers, Jan
