African Airstrip Adventures (AAA) is a cross over product that merges an advanced mission mode with high definition scenery. This addon will bring you closer to the fascination, the wildlife and the beauty of Kenya/Africa. The African Airstrip Adventures take FSX to the adventure level.

With this addon you can finally experience all the wildlife you expect to find in Africa. Although this is a Flight Simulator X addon, it is not meant to reproduce Kenya as it is. Lots of names and places are fictional, even if based on real places and objects. We wanted to fill the gap between the simulation and the gaming aspect of FSX. So while the flying is highly realistic your environment is created to suit the mission career mode and not in the first place to be realistic. It will never be unrealistic however!

When Microsoft announced that FSX would include a realistic living world, we were all eager to go for safaris in Africa or follow birds on their way across the planet. Soon enough we found that - apart from eagles soaring in thermals - there are no animals to be found outside certain missions. With the African Airstrip Adventures we correct this absence. This addon covers an area of approximately 40,000 square kilometers around Mt Kenya, the country's highest peak. More than 20 airstrips, custom scenery and landclass, landmarks, lodges, vehicles and of course thousands of birds and mammals are bringing FSX to life - more than everything you've experienced before.

But that is not enough. For the very first time in FSX, you can now start a career as a pilot in a fictional charter airline, the small 'African Safari Charter'. Take on several different jobs, organize your schedule, choose the best aircraft for your assignment, maintain your aircraft, transport passengers and cargo, go on safaris - and of course master the challenging airstrips, which will afford all of your flying skills. The career mode is not simply a mission, it's an unlimited adventure, with job offers popping up randomly. You can combine jobs, having to keep track of the aircraft's load limitations and your time schedule. If you manage all of that you can climb the reputation ladder, collect rewards and have hours and hours of fun as an 'African Safari Charter' pilot.

Features:

  • 40,000 square kilometers coverage surrounding Mount Kenya
  • More than 20 airstrips, many other landmarks like bush lodges
  • Thousands of animals (several animated)
  • Innovative Mission Career mode
  • Automatic dispatcher (you are an African Safari Charter pilot!) that assigns flights
  • Earn money and awards and increase your reputation standard!
  • If you own the Aerosoft Twin Otter or Bush Hawk XP there will be new liveries installed!

Please note that this is a product that is hard on framerates because of the thousands of individually placed objects. Due to the way FSX handles these objects there is just no way to optimize the scenery more than has been done. Running this scenery on the highest scenery levels could only impossible on the fastest systems. The scenery however makes full use of the density settings so when your system is not top notch you can scale down complexity and still see amazing scenery. The System requirements should be taken very serious.

System requirements:

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Acceleration or SP2)
  • Windows XP, Windows 7 (fully updated), Windows VISTA possible but not advised
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 CPU minimum (Core 2 Quad advised)

The position of PAPI on the runway 06 side is the position before the extension of the old runway.

it Looks great. The terminal has characteristic detail and i see what's going on inside which is excellent scenery. I will buy it as soon as possible. I just have sent an email for the developer about the eglight taxiway issue and they will give an update soon

Great scenery, excellent FPS, beautifully modeled terminals. Could use extra ground clutter around the terminals and particularly the FedEx hub. The blue taxiway lights are WAAAAAY overdone, they are almost blinding on final approach in VR. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.

I won't buy the product until they fix some of these issues. It would be nice to see the tall light post and lighting by the FedEx cargo ramp, and I would like the gas station and subway store modeled since it's on the airport premises.

The Good: ---------
- o - Gorgeous Terminal with fully modelled airside interior with animated peeps. o - Detail models in general with HD texturing with PBR materials. o - Most buildings 3D modelled. o - 72 FPS in the PMDG 737 sitting at the terminal with no AI traffic running on my HIGH/ULTRA settings. o - Nicely lit terminal area and cargo area at night. Interior lighting good. The Bad: ----------
- o - Disonnected Jetways. They are off by a foot or two on many gates. o - HOLY BLUE EDGE LIGHTS BATMAN! Way to many edge lights. These need to be hand placed. Wish devs would stop relying on the SDK's stringer placement system. Make a 3D light model and hand place it in the proper locations! o - Night lighting missing from areas where it should be such as the parking lots and the west side ramps of the airport. There are HUGE 32' tall ramp lights there in real life. o - Lumberjacks need to cut down some trees on the airport grounds. Way to many trees taht don't belong on the airport grounds. o - Extremely low LOD level on the ground taxi markings making them pop in to view from the cockpit. We should never see taxi line textures popping into existence in visual range from the cockpit. o - Lack of clutter in cargo area and across the whole airport in general. Needs more lived in look. o - Weird terrain mesh in places but at least its not near the terminal area. o - Some poor ground marking mistakes Ove-
r all a decent start to KIND but there are some pretty bad mistakes/ommiss-
ions that show a lack of quality control. A few more days in the developer oven would have made a far better product worthy of 4 to 5 stars. I own all of Dominic's scenery and they get better with each new product as they learn the SDK. Nudge the jetways to the building, remove the excess edge lights, fix broken ground markings and bad LOD and toss some cargo containers and palettes in the cargo ramps and we'll have a winner!

Very disappointed. Color adjustment leaves trees and building shadows blue. Too many red roofs for houses, which is not usual for Montreal. Only conifer trees, when it is mostly broadleaf for Montreal. Many flat roofs are shimmering, which is annoying. Density of trees is also too sparse. I should not have bought it.
