MK Studios EKVG Vagar for P3D v4.3

Recommended Posts

I see that MK Studios have released a nice looking version of EKVG Vagar Airport (Faroe Islands) for P3D v4.3. If the surrounding islands were covered with high resolution photoscenery, then I would be all over this one. Unfortunately, I am really not a fan of landclass scenery (even customised versions) :sad:

I'm interested in this, but waiting to hear some more opinions about it. Anybody else care to share their experience?

3 reviews over at S-Market.

2 x 5 star, 1 x 3 star.

The 3 star likes the airport, but not the rest of the island

First impressions:

The airport itself is rather good.

The photo scenery for only the immediate surrounding area is not - it looks out of place with landclass for the rest of the islands, especially when the photo tiles stop so close to the airfield.

That's a shame. I wonder if MK Studios have any plans to release a photoscenery upgrade of the islands?

Hi,

The thing here with the satellite images is low accessibility and high price. I'd personally love to have all Faroe Islands covered with it but it's simply not possible due to extremely high costs. The only images that were fine to take were these with +/- 20% cloud coverage, so that's not even an option. 

Kind regards,

I totally understand the situation, but unfortunately that lack of high resolution photoscenery for at least Vagar and the surrounding islands is a deal breaker for me. Frustrating, as I would love to be able to fly to that airport :sad:

The scenery remains good though. It is really smooth, and considering the weather there, the problem is not the surroundings beeing land class or vectors, it is seeing the surroundings at all lol... I enjoy it very much with the Fslabs birds.

I understand you are a commercial enterprise, but would you consider a freeware version using Google imagery? It seems to me the resolution on that would be 0.5-1m or so?

I think the airport itself looks marvellous, good clear textures and detailing on the buildings.

My one wish is that the in game ATC arrangements had been changed - Its still a 'traffic' announced service rather then an interaction based ATC. I wouldn't have thought this was realistic for even this small International airport?

The airport charts seem to indicate that it has an AFIS system (124.85), but I have also found a reference to a tower frequency (120.2). Whatever the case, updating the AFD file to include the latter should be very easy.
