Airport Review | Orbx Gateway to Queensland YBBN

Our dedicated reviewer Paul Beckwith takes the airplane to Down Under Brisbane. Why? Paul’s interest goes out to the Orbx Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) and believe me, Paul checks out almost every corner of what is modeled.

According to Paul “The number of custom modelled objects included are innumerable. There are so many, in so many different areas, I could not possibly manage to tell you what that count would be. Even so, every structure from the massive terminal buildings to the smallest weather station are treated with the same level of detail. The models, the textures, the colors, and the lighting effects are almost all spot on. As we have seen, the possible exceptions might be the International Terminal glass faces and the airport hotel building textures.”

But there’s so much more Paul would like to share with you with his comprehensive review. Check out Paul’s in-depth Orbx Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) review and enjoy the read. Comments are always welcome!

Airport Review | FeelThere Las Vegas

Our reviewer Todd C checked out for you the FeelThere KLAS – Las Vegas International Airport. According to Todd “The scenery is very much a real-life representation of the KLAS – Harry Reid International Airport that has been painstakingly updated to introduce simmers of all levels to the airport. The 3D modeling is excellent and the runway and taxiway textures, markings and signage are well done. The scenery transitions from day to night are also outstanding.”

Further on “In summary, the FeelThere KLAS – Las Vegas International Airport – XP11 scenery package is very well done and is worth the USD19.99 that is being charged for the scenery.” Curious what else T odd has to say? Then you should check out his review at X-Plained.Com.

Airport Review | Orbx Václav Havel Airport Prague

Our dedicated reviewer Paul Beckwith travels for you and Orbx to the massive airport of LKPR Václav Havel Prague. It turns out that it offers lots of awesome experiences with well modeled textures, but there’s so much more.

According to Paul “my final impression of the LKPR Václav Havel Airport Prague by Orbx is as follows; if you are a frequent flyer in the Prague vicinity, then this package is for you since it is, hands down, much better than anything that can be accomplished with the default building materials available in X-Plane. The very layout of the airport, as it will be when construction is finished, is not available in X-Plane unless you choose to do it yourself. The structure and details of the building architecture are extremely well done. The surface textures for the aprons, taxiways, and runways are very much worthwhile.”

And “I can highly recommend this package to the airline pilots looking for a realistic representation of the airport as they pull up to the jetways and load or unload passengers and prepare for their next flight. I can recommend it for those pilots who are frequently flying in the Prague vicinity and want something that clearly states, “this is LKPR” but don’t get immersed in the details.”

Airport Review | Verticalsim KBOI

Our dedicated reviewer Todd C. flew to KBOI or also known as Boise Air Terminal which is modeled with great precision by Vertical Simulations or just short Verticalsim. According to Todd “Verticalsim has a very strong reputation of being a top-notch scenery developer for X-Plane and it is evident with this scenery outing. The scenery is very much a real-life representation of the Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field that has been painstakingly recreated to introduce the simmer to the unique nature of the airport.”

Hold on, there’s more “For me, the Boise Air Terminal XP scenery package very well done and is worth the 23.99 USD that is being charged for the scenery. The scenery has proven to be a great addition to my flight sim universe. I am also very appreciative of the hard work that Andrew and his team has put into the modeling of the airport which results in an outstanding recreation of the Boise Air Terminal and Gowen Field.”

And now it’s time to check out Todd’s review via this review link. Enjoy the reading and comments are as always welcome.

Scenery Review | Aerosoft Society Islands XP

X-Plained.Com and reviewer Paul Beckwith are pleased to inform you that Paul visited the Society Islands XP – Bora Bora and Leeward Islands for X-Plane 11. According to Aerosoft “Welcome to Bora Bora and the Leeward Islands, the western part of the Society Islands in the South Pacific. Arrive with your regional airliners or business jets (up to ATR 72 and Bombardier Global Express) at Bora Bora Airport, and start island hopping with your smaller aircrafts and helicopters. Explore stunning atolls, sandy beaches and mountainous islands in one of the most exclusive and luxurious vacation spots in the world.”

But what has Paul to say about these islands and belonging scenery. Paul think in his final question “these islands deserve a place in your scenery collection if you are about the island lifestyle, atmosphere, coastlines, and sparkling waters. They belong in your world if you are a fan of high quality, world enhancing textures. They belong if you enjoy watching the world in which you fly take on a new ambiance with every change of the light. Ultimately, Society Islands, Bora Bora and the Leeward Islands is a brilliantly executed artistic vision of a unique area on the globe that is a “don’t miss” if you do not object to the stylistic decision to omit orthoimagery.”

Curious? I think you are. Check it out at our dedicated Society Islands review.

Scenery Review | TrueEarth Canary Islands

Our dedicated reviewer Andy Clarke decided to cross the English Channel and flew to the Canary Islands. Actually, Andy visited the Orbx TrueEarth EU Canary Islands for X-Plane 11.

According to Andy “I have certainly not covered every part of the scenery but have tried to make flights and remarks that give a flavour of what is provided. The experience of using this scenery immerses the pilot in a high quality, detailed and interesting world. The attention to detail is highly impressive as is the consistency of quality of scenery.”

Andy’s conclusion is easy and straightforward …. “This is a great scenery package and its beautiful creation of the natural environment and detailed provision of the man made aspects blends exceptionally well. A great flight experience.”

On behalf of Andy I invite you to check out his comprehensive Canary Islands review. Enjoy.
