MK Studios Keflavik - any good?

Recommended Posts

Looking for early adopters thoughts on this scenery. Looks nice but an insiders opinion would be great.

Cheers.

Just did my first departure tonight and I'm quite happy with it.  Nice to look at, easy on the frames, integrates well with ORBX.  Only thing I noticed is the AFCAD file had cargo planes at the passenger terminal and some passenger planes scattered around the airport so that could use some work, but otherwise very happy with my purchase.

+1 on that.  Looks great, just seeing some weird elevation issues inside the airport grounds off to the side of the runway.  Not a deal breaker by any means and just might be a conflict with Orbx.  Disabled all the files as stated in the readme as well.

Ugh. It's the same problem at Dublin. For whatever reason they didn't specify any cargo stands, so cargo airport aircraft that do not have an airline code designated in the AFCAD, will randomly appear around the airport... But, I'm glad to hear first impressions are overall good. I just wish they would sort out their AFCAD.

You can be certain that someone will update the AFD file with relevant airline codes and gate/ramp designations.

It is not so difficult and I did it several times myself. But this brings me to ask: Are some developers too word not allowed or too lazy to provide good AFD files?

For sure, that’s why the AFCAD is minor to me, the community will step up and fix it though.  I do wish addon creators took more time with that piece...I’ll hold up flytampa as an example of doing it very well.  Especially at airports with complicated runway operations they’ll do multiple AFCADs for different configurations and things just generally run well.

Again, I wouldn’t let that prevent you from buying this airport, it’s great.

 Does the base photoscenery extend outside the boundary of the airport? If so, what is the coverage?

True. Someone will eventually, but I know I have add on airports that no one has ever updated. I can do some thing myself, but it is time consuming. Many times I don't even realize there is an issue until I load up a flight.

I think we let developers off way too easy with this. To me, if the AFCAD isn't fairly accurate, the airport isn't finished and shouldn't be released and that includes the proper airline codes and settings using the standards AIG uses.

 I don't see it as the devs job to code the airlines at the proper gates or cargo spots at all. Not everyone has the same AI, some use proper codes and wingspan and others aren't even close. Many users don't even use ai and just fly online. If you want a better ade/afcad for any airport, do it yourself or wait for someone else to hopefully do it.

They should simply use correct ICAO codes and regulations no matter what ai developer do ...

I see what you are saying, but AIG has created standards for all of this. I believe developers should use established standards, and if a user wants something more custom, the user can make the changes. Right now, a lot of developers are basically saying f-it on the AFCADS. I'm just asking for a little more attention to detail. Doing what I'm asking would be an easy task for a talented developer, and after all, since they have to create an AFCAD anyway, might as well do it right from the beginning.
