Newcastle : hot test


FS9 and FSX. UK 2000 has just finished the fifth airport update this year. The team is hard on the heels of Fly Tampa and FSDT.


Installation : quite complex for the beginner. Download via UK 2000 server. Accound needed.
File : 95 mb.
Framerate : Normal. (tested without 4000 static cars option) on quadcore 2,33 Ghz, 8ram, AI HD 5850, triple screen and iFLY FSX. : fps > 12 on FSX.
The bad :

* The scenery could have included surroundings fields.
* It's almost too perfect. A few buildings and ground textures could have been more dirty and old.
* Too much airport staff (yellow guys). Is it possible to use high definition texture now ?

The good :

* Level of quality. Impressive textures, high quality of static objects.
* All the options included : AFD file, thousand of cars, service fleet, variety of static aircrafts...
* More and more textured shadows on static objects, buildings and even trees.
* When it's about release dates, Gary Summons is always reliable. A rare quality in FS market...












Bridge + custom road traffic + moving train. 

Trees have textured shadows.








High quality of ground textures AND static aircrafts...
