[FSX/P3D v2.2] Welcome to Sumburgh! [Part 2]

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


 


Sumburgh has been on hold for a few weeks but now we're back, a few


days away from entering the beta stage!


Sumburgh will be the first european airport from ORBX which will be released as a triple installer.


Here's a quick feature list:


 


  • custom made 1m terrain and airport mesh
  • First airport ever to come with the ability to switch between:
  1. Sloped runways, taxiways and aprons
  2. Flat, AI traffic compatible airport
  • A huge variety of Flow techniques:
  1. CreatureFlow (Animated birds)
  2. NatureFlow (performant volumetric grass and 3D grass)
  3. StaticFlow (a new Saab SF340 made by Jarrad introduced at Sumburgh!)
  4. PeopleFlow (animated people airside and landside)
  5. VehicleFlow (animated cars driving around the aiport following the sloped streets)
  6. Sound Effects (ambient sounds such as seagulls and the sound of the sea)
  7. Animated boats around the airport
  • All important landmarks
  • Realistic night lighting
  • Baked ambient occlusion
  • Lots of details to discover
  • very good performance (trust me, I get 80FPS in FSX and 100FPS in P3Dv2.2 with the Maule which is insane :) )
  • And most importantly: One of the most spectacular and fun approaches on this planet

So, what are you waiting for? Come and test your skills at Sumburgh :)

IMHO 29 Palms are in the top 5 best scenery developers I have ever seen

Beautiful Lars

It is with 'Profound Regret' you won't be doing Cambridge - 'Profound Regret'

Looking awesome! Will the AI aircraft be able to handle the sloped runway?

Lars, mate, visually speaking: a breathtaking work!

You developers, with Orbx support, I think, have transformed this simulated world so fantastic that, sometimes, I think I've been somewhere, but I was there in simulated flight.😄

How much detail! The choppers love! 😘

Thank you!

Wonderful work Lars and Martin!

We are timing this release to coincide with the FTX Scotland triple-installer.

This is at the top of my list (and I have a long list). Wondering if it would be possible to turn off the airliner statics but keep the others? The static SF340 is absolutely gorgeous, but I like traffic movement.

I am reasonably sure that there are quite a few parking spots available at EGPB Sumburgh, so I think there will be plenty of room for AI traffic in addition to the beautiful statics. Just remember that you will need to choose the "flat runway" option if you want to use AI planes.

Thanks, I'm sure there will be, just a request for Orbx. I think that's an option available for Southampton.

Will be especially nice to see the return of VehicleFlow, haven't seen much of that technology since Fall City.

It was used in Lars' last masterpiece, Southampton... But yes, it's always good to see it in action :)

Thanks for your kind comments guys! It's always nice to get such a positive feedback :)


 


Concerning the two questions that came up here:


We've plenty of additional parking spots available beside the static aircraft.


And yes, it's possible to use AI aircraft if you (as Christopher already mentioned) switch to flat airport terrain.


Unfortunately AI aircraft can't follow sloped runways and taxiways, that's why we decided to implement


the terrain switch in the first place.


 


Btw. beta testing of Sumburgh started today! :)

Looking forward to it, Lars. I will just have to hope that it can be made to work with photoscenery.

Shhh Chris, we're not supposed to talk about that.... :P  It does look very nice Lars, looking forward to it...
