Drzewiecki releases Chicago Airports X

Recommended Posts

I want the DD strictly for the city and KMDW. ai plan on dropping FSDT KORD v2 into it. I think I will wait to buy until after ORD release as who knows if they will play nice with each other.

in reading through this post, I see SODE is mentioned.  Can someone be kind and explain what that is?  I sometimes get a pop up saying SODE is no working

Sim Object Display Engine

In a nutshell, SODE is a better implementation of smart animated jetways. It gets rid of the default jetways and uses new ones that are a lot more detailed and dock up to aircraft more precise. Just install the free program and it does the rest. Most developers now are using this method for their airports.


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?

Greetings,

I live near Chicago and learned how to fly at KMDW back in the day when it wasn't busy.  I am very tempted to add the city and airports.  I am wondering since I have ORBX Meigs airport  installed, if the city and airports would be compatible?  It would have been nice to include Meigs with the option of deleting it if you wanted a current Chicago city scape.

Have they fixed the ILS28C yet?

Update: Fix is now on the DD forums.

I bought this yesterday along with Chicago City X.  I did a flight from MSP-ORD in the FSLabs 320.  All I can say is wow.  Very well done.  Finally a good quality ORD that was very and rendition of the city that was very good to me in terms of performance.  I don't look at frames but can say with storms around it was very smooth.  I actually landed on 28C and didn't notice an issue with the ILS.  What are you referring to? 

My only minor "complaint" is that when parked at the gate (I was in the B concourse), the windows are very transparent to where you just see emptiness through the terminal to the other side without any people.  I don't know what you could do to change that as adding "people" would probably be a waste of a resource.  In all, this is VERY good!

There is a compatibility option for this in the installer.

I went ahead and bought this and so far frame rate is good. I think at KORD it might actually be better than default.

I purchased city & airports. So far not so good for me (why did I have to get sucked into VR - cant go back to monitor now).  I did some circuits around the city with PMDG 747/777 & performance seemed to be acceptable at first.  Last night I tried to fly MSP-ORD with Leonardo MD80 & got CTD with terrain.dll error when entering city area.  Did some more testing with MD this morning & was getting a lot of jumping & stutters.  Also I get some aircraft bouncing on the ground at ORD which is usually pointing to mesh complexity... I have mine dialed back to avoid that problem.  Really want to get this package running decently in VR.

I did a little night tour of downtown from KPWK last night and was very pleased also. I'm going to do a touch and go tour tonight, PWK>ORD>MDW>PWK in my recently purchased A2A C182.

Me and another pilot just finished a flight from ATL to ORDnin the MD-88 and everything worked great. The scenery is very frame rate friendly and looks great. Deciding if I want to purchase the city next for a nice view on the arrival.

Get "City", it REALLY adds to the immersion when approaching over Lake Michigan. Personally I think DD Chicago City and Airports perform better than stock P3D Chicago area with no addons.

I agree, this might actually be added as an optional content.

 

The 28C ILS issue is related to the default navaids library and can be quick fixed by putting this file:

into: FS\scenery\0302\scenery . We need to investigate the actual conditions when the problem occurs (it neither occurs for all users nor this occured during our beta tests).
