Just curious to know which airports Chicago City X will include, beside KORD and KMDW

Hi Stanislaw,
I think Chicago airports X is not good idea, because there are good airport sceneries for Chikago (FlyTampa, FSDT, ORBX).
In my opinion would be much better Miami airports X. LatinVFR Miami quality is not up to nowadays standarts and other Miami airports are not presented in P3D.
Just suggestion..

Hi.
You are probably right but we are very much willing to make our own package of those 3 airports, being perfectly compatible with the city.

On the other hand KMIA is being regularly updated and I know that Ricardo keeps his eye on that airport very well.

Excellent work! I love your Seattle X and New York City X packages for P3D! Will all your future add-ons be made and optimized for P3Dv4 exclusively? I am hoping so, we really need to move forward and let go of FSX in order to take advantage of all the new modern stuff.

Also agree that FSDT is making a KORD v2 which will be coming out some time this year and its fully P3Dv4 compliant with DirectX 11 features, looks amazing. Ever since developers have dropped FSX support, sceneries have been looking so much better and so advanced now. What a change.

I wanted to make some requests because I really enjoy your sceneries for P3D. Could you please do an updated Hong Kong City X, Seoul X, Ho Chi Minh City X, Bangkok City X, Tokyo X. The Hong Kong one from FlyTampa is outdated and could use your magic, and plus we need more Asian scenery. There's already a lot of stuff for the US and Europe, but not much in terms for Asia. Would be nice to see other developers expanding there sceneries into that part of the globe.

Hi! Glad you like our products! But why would you want them to be P3Dv4-exclusive? Our products are perfectly optimized for P3Dv4 but also for 6 other flight sims, no problem with that at all. There are tens of thousands of people who still use FSX, FSX:SE and other older platforms (even FS2004!). I am not planning to abandon 6 platforms only to make something titled "P3Dv4-exclusive", this has no practical point at all. Having said that, during install individual files are installed for each flight sim and yes, P3Dv4 (and f/e FSW) versions of our products have different files installed than FSX or P3Dv1 versions. This does not mean something is poorly optimized - it only means, that for the same price you have a 7-platform coverage.

Yes, I know. While this is indeed a great project and the more products the better for the market, we are specialized in large-area products, since our project will include the whole metro area of Chicago together with 3 airports. This is not really a competition, just a completely different product category.

Yes, we technically can but currently we are not working on any of those projects. Please note that usually it takes about one year (or slightly more) to completely finish a project like Seattle or New York, so the list you have written would take about 5-6 years to complete. :wink:

True and there is a reason for that. :wink: Actually there are few reasons - f/e free satellite imagery for US. :)
