FS2002 Airport Scenery

Thu Dec 06, 2001 5:46 am

Here is are a small selection of the big airports with excellent detail and lots of AI traffic to avoid colliding with:

1. London Heathrow (Nice terminals and lots of hvy a/c)
2. Atlanta (Superb terminal scenery and loads of 737's)
3. Las Vegas (Traffic ain't as busy, but it looks nice)
4. San Francisco (The main terminal looks brilliant)

All of the above have great terminal buildings and the AI traffic seems to be nice and busy.

Here are some big airports which could have been much, much better (The AI is still busy though):

1. JFK (Microsoft, what have you done here?)
2. Paris CdG (Poor terminal buildings)
3. Orlando Int (I've flown into Orlando Int on my holidays and the Microsoft version looks pathetic compared to the real thing)

Can anyone else suggest some really nice airports please? I've still got lots of exploring to do.

They did a great job with CLK, there are lots of widebodies and the terminal building looks great

i don`t get it. why is JFK in FS such a pathetic airport, as far as i`m concerned , it`s one of the busiest airport in the world ! a major gateway that should really be thought of!

Greetings:

It's not just JFK all the tristate area airports look like crap. Yes there's plently of AI traffic but come on Microsoft lets do something with JFK, EWR, and LGA. If anybody out there is listening please create a better JFK for us.

Thanx

Yeah. I too was disappointed with the tri state area airports. I hope someone creates some nice add-ons.

and for some reason, no one`s ever created a freeware scenery for JFK ... ever ... was hoping to get a better scenery for FSFW95 , didn`t come up , FS98 ... nothing ... FS2000 still no one managed to make the move.

Interesting point about Birmingham International. This airport serves the UK's second largest city and the FS2002 version is rubbish. Luckily, I have the 'English Airports' add-on and this airport looks superb, just like the real thing.

Let's hope somebody releases a good 3rd party tri-state scenery set as well - JFK would make an excellent airport to fly into if it looked good.
