And now finally we head over to the 3rd and final airport in this series of Polish Airports Vol.3. My feelings on this destination may appear a bit more mixed then the two previous Polish destination. However, there are some features in this scenery that indeed reflect the impressive skill Drzewiecki is increasingly becoming infamous for. I also take a peak of several Polish airports completeting construction this year that show a very potentially promising future in Poland's represintation in our simulatiors. Of course, that it assuming the Dzrewiecki Design team is up to the task. Alright peoplez, let's bounce!!
Bandwidth Warning! Super long post and lots of mouthwatering shots inside! EDIT: All of the concerns I raised in this review have been corrected with the latest update!Now as I said earlier, I do have some mixed feelings regarding this scenery. However, what I like about the project far outweighs what I either disliked or felt where changes were needed. As always, the team did a great job making use of photoreal textures on the windows at the passenger entrance side of the main terminal.
This is the type of quality I am coming to expect from this talented team. I can almost see my own reflection in the glass. It's nice to see high quality realism have no affect on frames at all. I also like the texturing of the walls. Is that concrete? Very well defined.
I am also a big fan parking lot billboard ads.
And lets get closer... Good depth!! I love the talent from this team!!
The ramp textures are very sharp and well defined. However, we seem to be lacking the same quality of the photoreal window textures on the opposite side of the building. What happend here? I assume perhaps the photographers were not allowed in this area? My other beef is the complete lack of parmiter fencing in the scenery. So what happend there?? If we are going for such realism, how could that have been left out? Otherwise, if there are no fences then the photograpgers would have been able to just walk up and get some good shots of the glass. I was a bit dissapointed in these 2 areas...
But really, my wife doesn't hit me. What?? She doesn't! I got that bruise falling off my skateboard. Look please don't send the police to my house!!
Okay lets get back to the review shall we?
Here we have some VERY nice Cirrus statics. You can compare with the actual aircraft. Very good statics!!
We have a very good modern looking firehouse. No 3D fire trucks though.
In the Google Earth image you clearly see just how populated the area is. In the sim, its just open fields for miles.
Here again is a part of the scenery where everything was done right. The executive terminal is just perfect.
Overall, due to the fact that DDesign is setting and achieveing such high goals, I perhaps guess my expectations are getting higher as well. Now granted, this is a very small scenery and as such I don't want to come off as mean in any way. But I really feel what was done right was done perfect. And what wasn't is really minor but bugging nonetheless like the premeter fence. I feel this should have been added assuming the airport has one in real life.
The trees were very well crafted and there was not too much of the treewalls nor were they too obvious. Another feature I loved here were the Cirrus Static aircraft and some of the old origional buildings that I somehow left out. But that's okay. You have to explore a bit yourself too. So again, for what you get for the pric, and having 3 airports in the package, This honestly is a steal. And I want more. Much more.
Which brings me to my next point and question. Well we know DDesign is working on their biggest undertaking yet as they put focus on the entire city of Warsaw which will finally include Choipn airport. I was devistated years back when the team lost all the work they did on that project due to a harddrive failure. I had been following that project since the beginning. There is also the Tallinn project underway that will likely come Q1 2013.
But when the team returns focus back to these smaller Polish airports, I am going to be extremely excited. Because you HAVE to see the new generation of airports underway all over the Polish region. So now I would like to segway into what is going on in Poland and what I can't wait to get into my sim.
When you see what they are doing there, your mouth is going to water. We can then specluate what we are going to get!! Drzewiecki! Please take notes!!!
Lets start with... um... Okay!! Got it!
Here is what I hope they will make!!
Okay what's next hmm... Okay I know!!
This would be nice if it gets built.
Would look like this:
My first wish!!
The brand new Modlin from the ground up would look like this:
And that is exactly what it's starting to look like!!
Ok this a very long post so just 2 more!!
And my personal favorite!!
Just started construction!!
You just wont believe how many of these projects are taking place across Poland!!! I did not list them all. But the purpose of this long ass post is clear: What is in store for us in Polish Airports Vol.4?
Thanks for reading as always!! You can finally go now!!!
