  1. Courtesy of FSElite .. hopefully adding more realism to Africa soon in P3Dv4.. — Gaffer Simulations are relatively unknown within the flight sim community, but they’re looking to make big waves very soon with a release of O.R Tambo International Airport. The South African airport near Johannesburg is one of the largest in the country and has many routes in and out on a frequent basis. The renders sent to us exclusively showcase the work that has been so far completed on this project. The developer, Gaffer Simulations, tells us that the scenery will be exclusively for P3Dv4 and will feature high quality building models and texturing, custom ground polys, dynamic lighting and SODE jetways. — See screenshots of the current WIP via the fselite link below ...

  2. NMG Simulations has released OR Tambo Intl Airport / Johannesburg V5 for P3DV4. The South African airport is the largest in the country, meaning plenty of traffic. The developer, NMG Simulations has developed other sceneries for the region including Cape Town. This release comes after the disappointing news Aerosoft has stopped development on the airport. NMG Simulations package includes accurate runway and apron lighting, full compatibility with AI-Traffic as well as using the P3DV4 SDK to create detailed ground textures. If you previously owned the FSX version, you can upgrade for half the price. You can currently only buy it from the NMG Store for R250.00. When put through a currency converter, this equaled around $20. The website uses Payfast as their payment system. We had a look and their previous scenery packages appeared on other stores, so if you’re uncomfortable paying in South African Rand, then maybe you would want to wait. We’ll leave you guys to judge down in the comment section. FEATURES: Highly Detailed Airport Buildings. Accurate Runway/Apron Lighting. Fully AI-Traffic compatible. Corrected layout with the accurate road network and added vehicle traffic. Fully configurable installer – No computer experience needed to install!

  3. Aerosoft has taken the decision for halt development of their Mega Airport Johannesburg scenery. This comes after it became difficult to get proper imagery of the airport, mainly because the airport itself wouldn’t allow a photoshoot to take place. In a post to the Aerosoft forum Project Manager, Mathijs Kok wrote: “Okay we had a long discussion with modellers and projects managers about this project and we decided to close it for now. The simple fact is that we do not have the imagery we need to complete it to our standard. At this moment we are unable to do a photo-shoot at the airport (they are not very helpful over there) so we only have fragmented images, most from the internet (so not colour calibrated, often without good reference to when it was taken (year and time of day) etc etc. It’s a painful decision, most certainly because we probably should have taken it months ago. Blame me for trying to keep this project alive, nobody else. As you might recall we got the files from the developer who started it and was unable to fulfil his contract. In hindsight, we should have cut our losses at that time. Shit happens. As said, painful but we better be honest and open about the reasons. Sorry.” The airport was being difficult and even after sending references from other airports they still wouldn’t budge, Mr Kok said: “We even sent references from other airports. Difficult people.” “I know other companies do airports without doing a photo shoot and for hobby work that is okay, things like sightlines from the tower are not hugely important in FS, but we simply need to get that stuff right,” He said. If they manage to get the imagery they need then development can restart but until then, “this project is dead.” For more information click here LINK TO SOURCE:
