I finally finished my review of Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport by Drzewiecki Design. You can read it below and check out plenty of video content if you prefer to make your own opinion.
The airport is another great display of craftsmanship by DD. The terminals are stratospheric, the interiors are great, the detailing is fantastic. It’s top-notch almost across the board and the new runway all the way out there in the coutryside is fun
There are a few issues that need fixing tho. There is a localized performance issue that drops your framerate radically if you look at one of the terminals. I don’t think the issue is the level of detail, because the other terminals are equally detailed. DD is investigating, but this needs fixing with priority.
At this point, DD also needs to make sure that all customers (besides the official marketplace where it’s not possible I guess. That’s on Microsoft) get the option to easily deactivate the static aircraft. It’s not available on Orbx even if the client would allow for options.
They’re beautiful and likely the best in the industry but 100 of them are WAY too many (yes, I have counted them). Ideally, besides ON and OFF it’d be nice to have an option to have just some of them but not a hundred.
Hope this helps those wondering if the airport is worth it. Besides the issues above and a couple more nitpicks, it’s a no-brainer for me.
