This wonderful selection has been created to make sure that those who are sick of airports being generic and full in FSX can now enjoy something new and exciting. With this mod, you can make them take on a more HD design and to use textures which are befitting of a simulator as popular as FSX.
With the changes introduced here, you get to see an airport that has fresh character and format about it in a way that few other airport mods can match!
With the help of this awesome package, you can now get access to a wide range of different features which will do a wonderful job of controlling and mastering the arts of where you are within the world of FSX. Thanks to these new changes, the textures will make a big difference to the performance that you can put in as they make airports easier to work with and enjoy by adding in features like;
Theseare included to make sure that old runaways no longer resemble the old messes that they once were. With the help of this package you can now get to enjoy runways that do this vital part of any airport justice.
They are making the most of some awesome new texture styles which use an impressive 4096x4096 design to help capture the art and beauty of a runway. This quality of texture is a first for any runway package out there for FSX, so you should notice a massive difference to the depth and quality of the airport in various ways – this helps to bring it all together and make sure it looks truly wonderful, introducing some fresh and exciting changes to airports.
The massive changes to the taxiway textures is a big difference, ensuring that the whole thing can come together and look the best that it can. With the help of these new textures you can make sure that the ridiculously concrete and asphalt of a taxiway is now represented in the right way. In the past these looked quite weak and dull but today it’s improved to look vibrant and fresh.
These changes do a wonderful job of making the world come to life in the right manner, helping you truly grasp why taxiway textures are so important.
The improvements and changes introduced to the Jetway textures will make a big difference, too. These reduce the old limitations of a Jetway and now make sure that you are taking off from something that represents the ground in the way that it should. This looks excellent and does a fine job of bringing the whole airport together, making it look more authentic than it ever has in the past.
If you are someone who needs realism in every aspect of the airport to enjoy it then you should try this out – the new Jetway textures are immense!
The grass around the airport might seem like small extras and things that don’t matter but with this mod, you will see a huge difference. Now, grass is used to detail a photorealistic style that looks excellent and makes sure the grass of the airport no longer looks like one big slab of color and poor design. The textures are far more intricate than this, bringing the whole design together in one piece. It looks wonderful and does a fine job of helping you understand where you are at with regards to the grass textures and their layout.
The surface designs in general are improved, but none moreso than when they are wet. This makes a huge difference to the whole look and feel of the airports and will make sure that the surface refraction looks great with that solid wet look. It’s a nice touch that does a great job for selling and prompting that looks and feel – airports change how they look depending on the weather, thanks to this mod!
New signage has been added in here to help those who love their airport designs to be spot on – this will be captured perfectly with the help of the new tweaked and improved airport signs. When used together, they can be put in a process that ensures you have awesome, re-made airport signs all around you that can be used to understand where you are in the airport; these change depending on where you are in the world, which is a lovely touch.
New gate Textures are made up from scratch as they do a great job of selling the airport and making it look better than ever, as well. With the help of this gates into the taxiway and runway markings are now much improved to help you see a much closer style of airport.
Another lovely touch has been the creation of new parking textures that look wonderful and do a good job for making sure that parking spaces are going to be far more authentic looking.
Built to Perform
The best part about this mod though is that it’s so easy on the system. Rather than being an airport enhancer but a system destroyer, this finds the perfect balance and makes things explode into life and realism without being over the top on the damage it does to your system. Now, you can enjoy realism without having to forego performance which is a nice bonus.

A really good modification and certainly makes the smaller airports look realistic on approach. All I need now is a mod to make the airport buildings look better.

I like this product. A good match for the price. I have not seen all the add-ins as I usually like to hit several areas before I comment, but so far so good.
