This add-on brings Bavaria's second largest international airport in an incomparably authentic and lively atmosphere to X-Plane.
Over a development period of around 2.5 years, the two designers Volker Wegner and Lars Pinkenburg have rebuilt all the buildings and facilities of the real airport based on more than 1,000 photos taken on site with great attention to detail for the simulator. The airport environment was also modelled with great attention to detail and covers a total area of around 55 kmē, with numerous characteristic buildings, traffic routes and terrain features, so that the depiction is extremely close to reality even during the approach and departure phases.
A special highlight of the scenery are the innumerable vehicle animations, which contribute significantly to the realistic atmosphere at the airport. A lot of work was also put into the lifelike depiction of the taxiway and apron surfaces.
The scenery addon has been implemented using state-of-the-art X-Plane conversion techniques which, despite the high model and texture complexity, enable a smooth framerate on current simulator PC hardware.
