FTX Innsbruck a few more.

Recommended Posts

Exciting time, we know what happens soon after Iain releases preview shots. This is truly a masterpiece. Not only the Airport but the whole of Innsbruck comes alive.

These are just such amazing screenshots Iain. Not good enough description I am afraid, but I just can't believe how good that scenery is looking. Jarrad is a scenery design Jedi Master for sure ;)

Gobsmacked seems an appropriate term.:)

Iain, shot # 2, who's Easyjet is that going out? My hangar is devoid of that size aircraft & it looks like I will need to rectify that.

& do the trains move?

Thanks

Two real life photos taken in 2011 when we were on downwind runway 08.

Iain, when I see your screenshots and then look at my photos I can only say:  I am speechless !      Amazing scenery; great job Jarad.

What season is it when the river looks green?

 

Hi Dave!

The colour of the Inn-river, or, more generally speaking, rivers in the alps and mountainuous region over all, is/are not really depending on seasons as far as i know but rather on sediments and algae instead.

A larger amount of Iron oxide for instance lets river water appear more greenish as far as i know.

The colour also chances a lot after winter and/or heavy rainfalls, when lots of water runs into the river from the surrounding mountains.

But: All this is only as far as i know and i am no geologist or aquatic ecologist, so i stand corrected anytime by people who have more expertise and experience here.

:)

 

AND - not to forget:

GREAT shots Iain, from a GREAT looking SCENERY!

Today it is kinda green! See the pic below, which I have taken just a few minutes ago.

 

It only does not appear in a very bright green colour today due to the lack of sunlight. The shot is taken right at the mouth of the River Sill (see the artificial rapids at the upper right corner) into the Inn River. Hence the strip of darker coloured water on the opposite site. You can see exactly this spot on Emmsie's screenshot # 9. Upstream of the Inn is to the right of course.

 

The colour varies from day to day, best chances for a green river are during the winter month. During the snow melting in the mountains in spring and early summer the river has got a brownish muddy colour. This is also when it carries the most amount of water and can be very raging.

The church is there, although perhaps not the exact model, but the spire is clearly visible:

McDonalds and the shopping complex are also modeled yes, we are waiting on final textures to be applied.

Each release gets better and better, hard to imagine what it will be like in another 5 years.

Some very interesting local knowledge and discussion here too, only to be expected on this forum.:)

There is still a bit of work for Jarrad to do, we're just not showing the unfinished stuff in the screenshots. It's close though, you'll have it on your hard drives very soon.

It's really fantastic and I hope, that the afcad of LOWI also includes the helipad start position.

Joop

 

Thanks Joop, and yes indeed, Graham has included the helipad start locations for LOWI/LOJO. 

 

Cheers,

Jarrad

Hi Joop, yes it is completely is (see the first LOWI preview thread for screenshots of that one), though this won't have a selectable start location from the airport menu due to a couple of technical issues it brings up.

Stop reading the forums Jarrad and get the job done :) :D.

Looking forward to this one. I've already printed out all the Charts.

Great, I am familiar with the altitude problem of a start position with an afcad on a hospital. I made them for the NL2000 scenery on the UMCG hospital and that worked. Create an afcad ( fictiv ICAO code f.i. LOW9) with the altitude of the platform and create a start position 1 with the same altitude. If you start a heli on the afcad position the heli will be on the  ground, but if you start on the start position 1of LOW9 the heli will be on the platform . It worked with me.
