I’ve just recently started to buy a bunch of airports to travel to along the south east coast of England. I’m doing a tour from the Scilly Isles in Cornwall to the far east visiting, Dover and Canturbary.
To that I end I bought all seven airports by Burning Blue Design and four by orbx.
So far I’ve visited two from Burning Blue Design, Bodmin, and Popham, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Popham in particular is absolutely superb, you can go inside the airport towers, inside the coffee shops, everything is super high texture, with surrounding landmarks modelled.
I was super excited to see Orbx’s Southampton and Shoreham airports, but they are nowhere near as good. The textures of buildings are super low resolution, like they have come from FSX, the towers just look like autogen buildings in comparison to Burning Blue Design’s and you can’t go inside any of them.
These are my only Orbx airport experiences so far, although I have also bought Stapleford and Elstree.
Compared to Burning Blue Design though, these feel like they belong to a different simulator.
I was going to buy all the airports in the South of England made by them but not sure if I want to any more.
What are your experiences with Orbx, and other developers. Do you have any favourites devs, especially for the United Kingdom as that’s where I spend my time flying…
