That looks really good. Hope it wont have to much of an affect on the fps compared to the uk2000 one.

Looks good, though why can't they just wait until T5 opens, lengthy update processes expected! Oh and the 'snapper' for that thread needs to realise that BA took the Boeing 737 out of LHR a long time ago Wink

They don't use the 737s for GLA/EDI-LHR anymore?

No. You must have been asleep for the last 4 years!

There hasn't been a BA 737 near LHR for years!

Also a bmibaby 737 at T4 looks a bit odd. Although IIRC one of them did divert into LHR not too long ago.

I wonder how much of the new 27R holding area adjustments they've got in this, it's still going on at the moment and will look a little different when it's complete, would be a shame not to have it.

Well, there's a thing. Until a couple of years ago, I used to fly that route regularly and it was "a mix of 737s and A320s". I hadn't noticed the 737s disappearing.  wideeyed

They're all down at LGW now, the -400's have a future with the company and are being fitted with new lighting systems and deep cleaned. The leased -300/-500's are being cut from the fleet in favour of A319's.

The best part of it will be: once released and if you have enough credits, you can even use AES with the scenery. Unfortunately that won't be happening with UK2000 sceneries, Gary himself said so. But the Simwings scenery should eventually become compatible with AES.

You are blind then if you do not see anything different.

This new scenery urinates all over UK2000 Heathrow Pro, and you will almost certainly be guaranteed a significant improvement in FPS.

I have the UK2000 LHR scenery as well, and may get the Xtreme version if it will be free like LGW, but looking at the Simwings scenery, those ground textures are much improved over the UK2000 scenery. I wonder though, why was that never gotten right in the UK2000 LHR scenery?

Anyway, I hope it will come out by Christmas, so I can also get myself more AES credits and maybe a GAP bundle from the old sceneries (or maybe buy GAP 2 HAJ).

Those who buy the FS2004 version can get an update to the FSX version, once available, absolutely free.  Wink
