With a wholesale edit of the way that the whole area looks and feels, this mod will give you a chance to visit the second busiest single-runway airport in the United States and finally see it in all of its authentic glory and true design!
The main reason for using this mod is simple – this is a piece of aviation heritage, and if you like to use realism as part of your flights then there are few better options out there to go with than this mod. It helps to really capture a vital airport and sell it as it should have looked in the first place.
Using 10cm/pixel scenery and 1cm/pixel ground layout textures this does a pretty spectacular job of helping you enjoy a fresh, engaging and thoroughly unique airport scenery option.
This makes use of the modern style of the airport, including the new 2005 terminal that was included. In short, you are left with an airport that pushes the right look and feel whilst also avoiding the use of non-repetitive textures.
With the use of baked night illumination and ambient occlusion, too, you get a truly stunning airport that looks the very best that it can. If you want to make the visual appeal of the airport as impressive as the actual usage, then this mod is just what you need – it combines the best of both worlds to make a fair rendition of this vitally important piece of American aviation.
Takes a genuine look at the quality of the ground, the layout and the scale and alters everything. Using 10cm/pixel scenery to cover the whole airport with 1cm/pixel custom ground markings, you can be sure you will have an airport that plays to its historic image.
Uses baked-in, ray traced ambient occlusion on all major buildings and terminal building mods. This helps to create a really solid system that you can enjoy using and relying upon in future.
Specular reflections make a vital return here making sure that all HDR lighting looks the best that it can.
Makes use of accurate building details and heights, using the LIDAR elevation data available to get everything as close to the realistic style as possible.
Designed using specific X-Plane specific methods that ensure everything will looked accurate with a high level of performance thrown in for good measure.
Animated jet bridges and marshallers at all gates add another little bonus and helps to further enhance the airports realism.
Static aircraft can be included if you like, with animated and static ground vehicles flying around the place as well. Add in the road traffic and this airport soon feels far more alive!
