First impressions:

  1. It’s a very welcome appearance of a long awaited popular mega hub.

  2. As a mega hub, you can see that some compromises have been made. There is a lot of detail and high resolution in some areas, though a bit sparse and less detailed in the less frequented areas.
    (Namely, some terminal interiors and the control towers interiors have not been modelled, even static passengers aren't modelled. The GA apron area looks only part rendered).
    (The central landside area is very well modelled with road flyovers, advertising hoardings, canals, ponds, etc. The landmark areas, such as the Panorama Terrace with the F-100, the Corendon 747 hotel and the P3 parking garage all received notable attention).

  3. I find it a little strange that there are no moving vehicles airside, but there are landside.

  4. At TLOD 200 and limited AI aircraft, it’s flyable on my PC (5800X3D and RTX 3080Ti). GPUs with < 12 GB VRAM may struggle without reducing the texture quality in MSFS settings page.

  5. Personally, I find FT EHAM doesn’t look as nice as iniBuilds’ KJFK (especially some of the building textures at night), however, it performs far, far better.
    OTOH, I prefer FT’s texturing to AmSim/BMotW’s attempts at their CYUL.

Perfect? No.
Good? absolutely. (YMMV).

Does it have AI parking codes?

THAT my friend, is a very good question. I wonder why almost none of the reviewers ever care about this, sadly FT has not been very good in releasing sceneries with good AFCAD in the last years, so lets hope for the best.

No idea if the parking codes are any good or not. (I can't get Scruffy Duck's ADE for MSFS to work).
Anyway, I use RealTraffic and PSXTraffic, which obviates the need for good AFCAD.

ADE for MSFS is "no go" in its current state. Yes, PSXT/RT/AIG saves the day.

Pretty complete to begin with and with GSX Pro you have the most complete real life stuff 😉 We actually synced the both of them 🙂

Yes, there are! Please let us know if you miss some parking codes and/or see airlines parked at a wrong place!

There will be some adjustments in a coming update. I somehow missed Kenya Airways and the parking type at the H pier should be ramp_ga, otherwise no stairs comes up (when using default ground services). Also the G ramp has some codes which should not be there...

But JetBlue is already added for example ;)

You fail to mention if using under DX11 or 12. It’s a well known fact that most third party scenery runs good on DX11 but atrocious under DX12. Without knowing this, you’re only telling everyone half the story .
