New major african hub scenery - FSDG GOBD

Recommended Posts

Hey all, for those in terrible need of west african airports, FSDG released Dakar LITE-series for 8,00 euros (GOBD - Blaise Diagne) which recently replaced GOOY (Leopold Sedar Senghor airport) for commercial operations.

A big thank to them for supporting such underrepresented areas in the flightsim world!  

Paris - Dakar here we go 😎

Regards,

JP

Every African scenery is welcome.  I really hope FSDG tackle Addis Ababa and Cape Town.

Good to see some African airports getting some attention, they are great for freight ops in Air Hauler, will check that out 🙂

We really do need Orbx LandClass for Africa too - although they seem to have gone quiet on this.

The plans for OLC Africa and Asia definitely vanished.  I have all OLCs released so far and really enjoy them.

Nicely done scenery and inexpensive too at £9.25 in the UK, here's my A340 at the main terminal...

This is a nice little scenery and for under €10. What a bargain!
FSDG seem to like their 'obscure' airports (from a simming point of view) with GOBD now joining Djerba, Marsa Alam and Sharm El-Sheikh in their catalogue.

Other notable quality payware sceneries include Kilimanjaro and Banjul. Very slowly the list is growing.

I reckon once OLC Africa (incl. Middle East) is released will see a more consistent flow of African airports being developed.
You never know, we might see one of the big 5 from FAOR, HECA, FACT, GMMN, or DNMM in time for P3Dv5.

Thanks to FSDG team for this renewed concept: good designed airports in new countries for a incomparable budget. Hope for this team a big success. Ideal for renewing long hauls in 747, 777, 787, A330 or A340

I have completed now this collection of airports...

Add my vote for more African content ... talked to Ed at Orbx about this at FSExpo ... it's a very FPS friendly area.

Cheers, Rob.

The airport authorities won't allow access for photography and technical research - unless you hand the right person a suitcase of cash.  Unfortunately, that's how South Africa / Africa rolls.   That's why Aerosoft's developer had to can the FAOR project, which would otherwise have been completed by now.

Polite speak for: 'There's **** all there!'
(In the sim. Not a Trump-ism about 's**thole countries') 😅

It needs another developer who isn't as demanding as Aerosoft with sight lines, etc. to give it a bash. Surely one of them can get an idea of what the modelling and texturing requirements are using photos off the internet.

I respect developers like FSDG for tackling this 'forgotten' continent. I would second more South African sceneries, as well as Nairobi, Adis Abeba and Dar Es Salaam. I'm a sucker for Eastern Africa...

On the bright side, while not really Africa, David Rosefelt is working on a new Tel Aviv for P3Dv4 🙂

NMG Simulations do have most of the major airports in South Africa covered and they do have P3DV4 installers. They are available from Simmarket for around 17 Euro for buyers outside South Africa, fair value I think.

I have FAOR, FACT, FABL, FALA, FALE and FAKM for V4 but some of their older releases for FSX still work ok on V4

Sorry, but they are not worth 17€ or anything near that.

You've obviously seen NMG scenery and will therefore understand why there is a demand for other developers produce a much better product.  NMG is by today's standards a low quality scenery.  I've used Nico's scenery since FS9 days and very little has changed

FSDG have much better design techniques and charge EUR 8 per airport.  EUR17 is a rip-off for NMG airports.

That looks superb!  Really looking forward to this.  It looks like you are also doing FACT - I recorgnise Table Mountain in the background and the Pick 'n Pay distribution center near the runway threshold. (I'm from there)   Are  you able to share any more pictures of it?
