Benjamin J posted a topic in The Bargain Hunter's ShackHey all, Ever since getting the PMDG 747 and the BS A330, I've been expanding my 'operations' away from the EU and the US to explore new 'markets'. Thus I've been solidifying a route network in the Middle East, as well as Asia. And while the former is almost complete (just need FT's Dubai, as well as hoping that Armi project will put their P3Dv4 OOMS back on sale sometime soon), Asia is far from it... I've got Hong Kong setup, as well as Taipei and some other cities sort of in-between, with my first foray in Japan coming from BDO's Kansai, which is a beautiful addon. However, I recently saw that Technobrain's Haneda came on sale at Simmarket. What attracts me to it is that Haneda has an intriguing location, being in the harbor. I like these 'on-the-water' type airports, especially the island-type runway. I also read on their product page that they have modeled some Tokyo city landmarks, which would be nice to have, though I know that there are some other Tokyo city sceneries available. Finally, Haneda has service to essentially all Asian airports that I already have (e.g. BDO's Kansai, PS's Incheon whenever it's released, or PS's Taipei), or am planning to get when they are on sale (such as IS's ZSPD). However, what holds me back is the still-high price, even when on sale, the fact that the ground textures appear a bit simple, and the fact that the connections with other cities that do exist are typically not operated by the 747 or A330, meaning I won't really be using Haneda with the planes I'd typically want to sue it with. With all that in mind, I wonder what you all think of this scenery? If you have it, do you think it was worth your money? As an aside, WC's Narita is pretty much the same price as on-sale Haneda, and Narita would probably be a better fit for the flying I intend to do. I've never really considered getting it as the scenery looks technologically very outdated. But, if I;d be spending some 30$ on a scenery, Id be more inclined to get the scenery that gives me the chance to fly the connections with the aircraft I'd wanna fly them with. How do the two sceneries compare, and would you say Narita is better 'value' (whatever that means when sceneries are this expensive...)? On the downside, Narita is not actually P3Dv4 compatible it seems, and lacks P3Dv4 features, such as dynamic lighting. So, is there a preference between one or the other? Thanks! Benjamin
