Three installation attempts to get it working, default textures everywhere initially and all but gave up hope. Luckily I was forwarded a youtube video which made me completely edit the AFCAD file, and voila - there you have a beautiful rendition of LGW. Near perfect. Just as I started to be happy with this product, I try and night flight and my FPS drop from 40fps to 4fps. Simply not acceptable. The proximity to LHR/LON is no difference whatsoever as I still got 35fps departing LHR at night on the same evening! No official website and a lack of online forum or support deems this product almost unusable. Hoping the UK2000 team bring out an updated version of Gatwick in the near future.

After some small problems with default buildings/taxiway signs in P3D V5.1 the support was quick and helpful. All in all I can enjoy now a nice scenery with good & sharp textures, really good performance. The sourrounding area is not really included but for my opinion okay. I would rate it 4.5 because it was not working out of the box but all in all a great scenery with great support.

Very disappointing!

Although performance wise I have no complaints, this really doesn't feel like LGW at all.

At the south terminal there are lots of strange flickering black textures on the buildings that look awful.

The runway edge pavement obscures the PAPIs so that only three lights are visible (don't these developers even bother to test their own products??)

There are runway edge light stands that obstruct RET taxiways (edge lighting in the UK is recessed anyway).

The signage looks bizarre too, not at all like the signage you'd expect to find in the UK. Taxiway signs floating above the grass on stilts, it just doesn't look right.

And now for the lighting...

The ALS is ok, however the TDZ lights aren't the same size and are only visible when directly above the runway. The RET centreline lights look like something from a Christmas Tree when you approach from a distance. The lighting is generally just too saturated and garish!

Overall very disappointing. I've obviously been spoiled by developers like FlyTampa and RFScenerybuilding.

A project that looked excellent in its previews and finally something to challenge UK2000. The AFCAD on initial inspection showed massive problems for AI traffic and stand alignments and i contacted the Dev and offered to rework the AFCAD which he accepted. Onwards from here updates have been issued and the airport has improved bit by bit. It still lacks a good dynamic lighting upgrade and smaller bugs and fixes pending as of April 2020...

Remember the performance will always have a slight drop in FPS given its location and proximity to Heathrow and London. I never drop below 25fps in my setup with AI traffic.

There seems to be issues with a loss in autogen and vegetation loss in areas surrounding the airport which would be great to have them addressed too.

Overall its a good rendition and gives the current Gatwick by UK2000 a good fight until they go for Gatwick HD.

Absoloutely epic bit of scenery. SO so much nicer than UK2000 gatwick and massively worth the £20 (£5 difference between the two) - works so much nicer in terms of performance too!

I reviewed this, when it was released as a 3 star product

The concerns I had about this scenery have all been addressed by the 1.15 update

This is now a genuine 5 star product.

Good representation of the airport (which I know well) and amazing performance, given the size and location of the airport.

Great work.

I was really hoping for a "hit right out of the park" here. Unfortunately, not. I need not to elaborate, just have a read of the other comments that preceded this review.

I would be remiss if I did not share that I was looking for a lot more, having patronized Jennnsoft and commending them on their other title releases. This one just did not deliver to the level of expectation. Bear in mind, they have made a stellar effort with maintaining a very exceptional and commendable performance level for this airport in this highly texting region.

The product is Good but doesn't beat its competitor at this current stage/version. I do look to Jennasoft to response with the duly noted improvements the delivery the WOW!!! factor.

Respectfully

A great first product but as some have rightly pointed out it needs some improvement,
I believe the SEGS are missing? Unless I have an issue that is not showing these. I am too having a texture flicking when looking at certain views of the airport. The ground textures do not match ORBX for this time of the year? I really hope these issues and others have raised are addressed.

The scenery is visually better than UK2000. However some crucial details are missing. The car park by 08R doesn’t seem to be modelled at all. The night lighting definitely needs improvement, far too dark in my opinion and the PAPI lights by 08R seem to be off merging in the runway itself. All in all a solid first product, but I must say that these issues must be addressed.

There's lots of good things about this addon, with more work it can be a five star airport- but there's some things that need sorting.

If you look at the North Terminal for example, the contrast between windows and the panelling should be strong. The windows should be quite dark- look at any photo of the airport. All that contrast (which is on the texture) has been lost once the specs are applied and the windows become almost the same tone as the panel. Fix this and there will be a massive visual improvement. You just need to darken the alpha on the specs, but by a substantial amount.

The grass colour is nuts for the UK. It rains here sometimes! The grass should be green not yellow. Grass is generally darker than concrete and probably as dark as the asphalt. This is much too light. More specifically, I think the expectation nowadays is that grass colours should match ORBX global texture colours and tone. Once that grass is darkened there will be another big improvement in appearance- it's quite a big issue.

Night-lighting is poor, essentially because the buildings are too bright. Darker is always a safer option.

I have some texture anomalies. The runway changes colour on peripheral views. This may or may not be down to the product. Some flashing elsewhere.....

BUT---- texturing is sharp, performance is very very good, airport layout seems correct. So many examples of excellent work. This has potential to be fantastic- but please fix the above..

REDWING SIM - L-1049 SUPER-CONSTELLATION AIRCRAFT MSFS
Simon
One of the most iconic propliners ever is brought to life with this near study level aeroplane release from RedWing. If you like the PMDG DC-6, or even just the era of flight, you should really consider adding Connie to your hangar.

I will say that it is an impressive plane, and become one of my favorites on MSFS, I can see that there are still a few kinks. For one, the sound, unfortunately it sometimes clips while the engine is running, that old annoying click sound. Luckily it disappears once you are at cruise altitude. Also with the newest update I got, I notice that I no longer have the "Breitling" livery. I do like the MATS, but I liked Breitling also. Aside from the autopilot crashing at least once, "since the update 1.9.1" There is still much to love about the true grit of this aircraft! Keep working on it!

Hey, thank you very much for this beautiful airport! I am very satisfied, it is very detailed. I didn't notice any frame rate drops.

AI aircraft do not take off, they just taxi to the hold point and bunch up behind each other until eventually they time-out and just disappear. The rendering is old-school, lacking PBR texturing etc. and not up to the standards seen in other recent MSFS addons.

Bigger VRAM consumption than is appropriate on an airport with this size, also an incorrect stand placement in the AFCAD (planes are facing the terminal with their backs, next to each other). Othe-
r than that, very nice rendition of the scenery, and I didn't have to hesitate with buying it!

FEELTHERE - EDDF FRANKFURT AIRPORT MSFS
Volker
I have never posted a review without first purchasing the product before, but I have to make an exception here, as there are a few "minor" points I see in the preview photos that are making me hesitate from purchasing: -
Image 3: Jetways in foreground disconnected from Concourse A (that's a long jump to board your plane). Also, the A380 maintenance hanger seems to be missing entirely at the rear left. Also, none of the iconic Lufthansa crane logos on the gates. Image 4, 13: there seem to be "a few" buildings missing between Terminal 1 and the Squaire ... Parkhouse P2, the Frankfurt Airport Center, the Frankfurt Airport Marriott, the iconic Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel, and Parkhouse P4, to name just a few. Oh, and the bridge connecting Terminal 1 to the Squaire, but I don't want to nit-pick. Im-
age 5: construction status of Terminal 3 seems to be "not started" Ima-
ge 6: almost all jetways at T2 disconnected from Terminal 2. I could go on, but won't and will instead ask: was the release of this add-on accidental and premature? It seems to be pre-alpha. Apologies for the blunt words, but I'm honestly shocked and saddened. I have been waiting for a good payware EDDF since MSFS came out, and was overjoyed for a short moment when I saw this release ... until I saw the photos. I will keep my eyes out for a very large update, and won't hesitate to purchase if and when it comes, but in this state, the default MSFS version is superior.
