Anybody taking requests to design an airport?

Recommended Posts

Back in the "old days" of FSX, there seemed to be quite a few talented simmers who would be open to requests from other simmers to attempt to design an airport (more realistically than the default one provided).  I know it's more complicated today, but if anyone is listening, I'd really like to have a realistic rendition of KABE (Allentown, Pa) Intl. Airport for P3d v5.  It's my home airport and it's an important airport in the East.  It's only about 60 miles from Philadelphia and about 70 miles from New York and Newark, NJ.

Of course I would be willing to pay for it if you personally message me.  I'd love to see it available for everyone as well.

FSXcenery has a payware version of KABE on Simmarket, and there's a freeware ADE-based scenery by Jim Cook out on the interweb somewhere.

Has it ever materialized in the final products released to the public?

Not for P3dv5. I did use that for earlier versions…and it’s not that good.

Assuming you're talking about the FSXcenery, yeah, they're not exactly top-shelf add-ons, but they do meet the fairly low bar criteria you specified: "more realistically than the default one provided".  I know it's not v5 native, but most P3Dv3 sceneries will work in v5 if you create an exclusion file (and possibly an elevation correction file) for the default P3Dv5 scenery.  And you can probably take the Jim Cook ADE and recompile it for v5 as well.

"Fairly low criteria?"  Actually, I really would love to get a relatively high quality rendition of KABE.  My thread is intended to see if anyone out there is willing to design it.  As I said, I would certainly be willing to compensate someone willing to do it. I do think other simmers would enjoy that airport as well.

The KABE airport for MSFS is quite good.  Only $10.  I would love for THIS MSFS version to be available for P3d as well.  I would be quite satisfied with that.
