Wow great work so far. Airports look great and city looks amazing so far. Thank you for the updates and keeping us all in the loop. You guys always do right by us, your loyal customers. Only problem I can foresee, you guys have not only raised the bar but threw it out of the window and now any future projects you guys start will have to top this one. That and you’ll have us requesting revisiting other past city sceneries to update. Wow can’t wait for Chicago to come out. Bravo.

Thanks. Constantly raising the bar is exactly our idea.

WOW! Truly awesome work - absolutely can't wait for this.

Are there plans to include Waukegan National (KUGN)? This busy GA airport that also serves as a reliever for KORD is in close proximity to all the other airports in the package. While a basic version exists for X-plane, it's never been modeled to the high fidelity that Drzewiecki Design is capable of, and it would make for a more complete Chicago package across multiple simulator platforms. It's also my home airport, and I fly out of KUGN several times a week. Thanks for the consideration - best of luck finishing this project.

Best,
Elliot

Wonderful work. I have New York and Seattle airports. Seattle airports are particularly nice. I especially like the way you incorporate static aircraft with the AI aircraft. The ground crews working on planes makes the airport come more alive than AI planes sitting at the gates. I look forward to purchasing more of your projects.

Stanislaw ,
I have one request. I currently have the Fly Tampa Midway airport installed. One of the features that set it apart from other sceneries is it has shadows of people moving about in the terminals when viewed outside. can you incorporate this into you version. That way I won't have any heartbeat upgrading to you version of the airport. :mrgreen:

Hey.
Well, I guess we will start with performance tests but we can add such things in the future.

Real nice, but I'd move those SW 737 Max out of there and move them to the Mohave Desert. I can't wait. For those who have FlyTampa KMDW, I hope I can deselect KMDW but keep the rest of the airports in the Chicago Scenery.

Just flew back through midway. The airport is under some construction expanding the bridge over the road to the gates. Are you going to represent the future state?

I’m also wondering if the cribs on the lake will be represented. They’re called out and used during visual approaches as a turn point. For instance arriving from the west and landing 22L, typically the turn around point is over Lake Michigan, at the crib.

Hi.
Not sure if THIS is what you mean by "cribs". Please give coordinates to that object.

On screenshots on the previous page you can actually see that constructed part, it is already there.

Looks like. 41.785916,-87.531398

Google water cribs Chicago for better imagery. There’s a few. They are what Chicago uses to bring water to the city from the lake.

On the terminal area chart (not sectional) you’ll see it called out crib. You’ll also see hotels with a flag.

Hope that helps. :)
