The Solent area England

The Solent is a stretch of sea separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of Britain. It is a great place for yachting. It is sheltered by the Isle of Wight and has a very complex tidal pattern. The ports of Southampton and Portsmouth lie on its shores. Spithead, an area off Gilkicker Point near Gosport, is well known as the place where the monarch reviews the Royal Navy. This stretch of water is amongst the most expensive waters in the world to cross by ferry.

Vieux Port (Old Harbour)

Marseille France

The port of Marseille has historically been the port of the French Empire, linking the North African colonies of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia with the French mainland. Today, the port stills plays an important role in Marseille, serving as both a commercial container port as well as a transport port for the Mediterranean sea. While the modern day port activities take place along the coast at the New Port, the Belgian Quay in the Old Port is used for the daily fish market, where the daily catch plays centre stage in Marseille’s culinary traditions.

Customer Reviews
A_A SCENERIES - KUALA LUMPUR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT V2 KLIA FSX
Hon Wing Terry Tsui
Just bought the Version 2 at upgrade offer price of 6 euro. What a reasonable price. Found user friendly on the frame rate and displayed every important details of the whole airport. But the tower view is not shown correctly, it provides the view of the terminal front. To my surprise at night time it shows very clearly through the glass the inside details of the terminal. I have been visited this airport many times, glad to see this which gives a warm feeling of the past memory about this airport. All in all, highly recommend this for all simmers.
MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Christopher Worrel
It took 5 hours of screwing around to get it to install and behave. Yes I've owned FSX since launch, yes I own many other popular addons, yes I read the instruction. Simply it was a pain.(but what isn't in Flight Sim) How ever I've been testing and wow. I owned Aerosoft 2013 and its an improvement on that. There are so many extra bonuses and features I'm still testing all of them. I say buy it and install it but take the afternoon off from work.

Weather is still limited by the METARS.. Move away from the METARS, HiFi! Otherw-
ise it's "good".
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY NEXT SP2 UPGRADE FSX P3D
William Alexander
Being a dedicated HiFi Active Sky user from the onset, I upgraded sequentially as this amazing team listened to our feedback. They not only delivered, they surpassed every time. I was using AS Evolution until yesterday; seeing as I also just purchased PMDG's Boeing 777LR, I wanted to use its advanced weather radar - of course, the HiFi team got involved with the seamless integration and I am blown away by its super-realism! Aside from that, so many other areas have been improved way beyond my expectations. No more cloud popping, no more clouds hugging high terrain and mountains, amazing in-cloud visibility reduction and so much more. Using Active Sky Next with REX 4 plus with their soft cloud package has made my simulation experience so realistic that I have nearly grabbed onto my chair during turbulence, wind shear (audible alerts will wake you up too) and wake turbulence. Even the lightening effects and sounds have improved hundred-fold. At the upgrade price, I definitely got a heap of bang for my buck! Thank you HiFi Technologies and keep up your amazing work!
ARMI PROJECT - OERK KING KHALID FSX
Chris Jepsen
Sorry, but only 1 star for this one. The ground textures are horrible and the building textures aren't much better. The taxiways must be labelled as "dirt" because the aircraft tires are kicking up dirt on every taxiway. Just feels like this was rushed or something. Pretty poor quality considering the work done on VTBS by this group.
FSDREAMTEAM - GSX GROUND SERVICES FOR FSX P3D
Tom Divendal
Great product! I know I can't fly without GSX ever again, it adds alot of realism to the "gate experience"! Didn't come across any issues reported by the previous reviewers.
BANGKOK AIRPORT VOL1 SUVARNABHUMI INTERNATIONAL FSX
Aleksey Kochi
Great scenery! Excellent support! If you have problems with error in FSX, please write to support for help.
THAI CREATION - NAMASTE MUMBAI : CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FS2004
Richard Todd
I agree with everyone else, a great airport with excellent textures and eye-candy as always from Thai Creation. Great to see an airport sadly neglected by designers in the past. Who will be the first to finally release ZBAA?
ARMI PROJECT - KUWAIT INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OKBK FS2004
Richard Todd
I concur - where it is good to see developers looking at areas such as Asia and the Middle East, and I say well done for that, there are one or two niggles which prevent this from getting 5 stars. The ground vehicles as already mentioned are annoying, wizzing around like ants on steroids! Also I personally do not like photographic ground textures used for the airport apron - it does not look right. Although I have not yet used the AFCAD for flying in or out of the airport but it is clear not much effort went into it, as there is a total lack of gates to choose from. Maybe spend a little more time before releasing would make this a 5* product.
TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - BOEING 767 GE HD SOUNDPACK FSX
Justin Lawrence
I purchased these sounds to supplement the Level-D Boeing 767. The interior sounds are just like they are in the real thing. The audio quality is great, and unlike the previous review, I did not experience any "popping" sounds.
