Then try out this brilliant Palo Alto airport add-on created by Cielosim!
This lovely package captures the look and feel of the real thing perfectly so that you can finally see what the airport leading to Silicon Valley looks like up close – the little details are captured here with precision and detail to ensure the whole airport manages to look the closest that it possibly can to the real thing here, adding in all of the details that matter.
In this package, you get access to a wonderful new range of changes and improvements that will do wonders for the overall enjoyment you’ll get from the whole set. This has been designed to ensure that you have no problems in buying into and then falling in love with the unique and charming nature of this airport. Using 2065x2065 quality scenery textures, this makes sure that everything included in here is going to be as authentic and detailed as it possibly can. Even the little things matter in scenery, and this captures them perfectly.
New ground imagery has been created to go along with this, too. It’s not just the buildings and the fears around the place that has come to life in such a dramatic and unique fashion – it brings everything else with it, as well. The new ground imagery that is being used here will make sure that concretes and other pieces of the ground are all detailed in the right way; rather than being one big horrible overlay that covers everything and looks ghastly and unrealistic, this is a highly detailed ground texture put down with accuracy and consideration for realism.
More importantly, though, this package does a wonderful job of capturing the key features within the grass – the grass is now totally 3D which is unprecedented in many modules out there. This new change will make sure that even the most miniscule patches of grass look like the real thing instead of being a flat layer stuck to the ground. This makes the grass more appealing on the eye but also does a lot of bringing the rest of the world around the airport itself together – now, this part of California looks more realistic than it ever has in the past.
This is backed up even more impressively by the changes to the autogen system that is being used in this simulator. Now, you can make the whole place come to life with just one selection as the custom placed autogen is now using a far more accurate set of placings and parameters to ensure that it all comes together and looks the very best that it can. By doing this you are left with a package that looks truly exceptional, and has no problem in controlling and/or preparing the look and feel that you would have been hoping for.
Need another reason to view this wonderful rendition of the Palo Alto Airport? Then look into the changes brought to life by the new custom water mask. This means that any piece of the coastline around the airport has now been brought to life with a thoughtful consideration for how it has to look. Rather than just offering the basics and hoping that would be enough, this package does everything that it can to waken up your entire coastline and to make sure that the airport looks far more credible alongside the coastline instead of being so blatantly different in design.
An excellent addition to this program, though, has been the use of static aircraft throughout the airport. No airport should ever feel like a ghost town and with this mod you now get new static aircraft which line the area and look wonderful. It will ensure that he airport looks as busy as it is in the real world which adds a huge amount to the overall vibrancy and quality of the design used across the part. It looks wonderful to be a part of but also does a great job of capturing that beauty and style in more ways than it used to.
Optimized for performance to ensure that you have no problems in controlling and then falling in love with the entire area – FPS problems with other airports may be common, but not here. With this selection the Palo Alto will look spectacular and load quickly, ensuring that you can enjoy a minimal reduction in performance (most of the time none whatsoever) when you use this mod as it grips and captures the look and feel of your package that you have added in with detailed and precision. Nothing added in here will hamper your performance in any way.
Need a way to get used to the night illumination? Then you have to look at the mod that is used in here! This does a wonderful job of capturing the beauty and style of the night, adding a new lighting technique that looks authentic and captures that perfect look.
The skies are now alive with animals as much as they are with aircraft – the new 3D, animated birds which fly around the world look great and also add a lovely little layer of ambience to the whole design. Now, the world feels far more alive than it used to.
