Title: Feedback on scenery accuracy
Post by: jericho on 02. August 2021, 12:33:51
I've bought the Model Instrument's version of Kai Tak since the Redwing's version clashes with samscene's scenery, and I think Model Instrument did a very good job in recreating Kai Tak.

However I do have some feedback and suggestions on improving the accuracy of the scenery, because I want this airport to be better :D

1. The runway markings does not have the "^^^^" before the threshold. It's supposed to be just the arrows like in the real life picture. Same goes to the opposite side (RWY 31).

2. The radar tower rear the end of the runway on the other side is missing. I've attached a photo on what the tower looks like.

3. The Traditional Chinese writing on the multi-storey car park should be "香港啟德國際機場", but the Chinese writing in-game is Simplified Chinese and the letter placement is incorrect.

4. This is a little nitpicking, but the grass textures in the airport vicinity looks a bit too saturated when compared to the trees and grass in the surrounding terrain which is more accurate in my opinion.

Thank you for reading this and I hope my feedback can make this superb scene even better! :)

Thanks for the feedback! Points are noted. Some are quick wins, which I will incorporate into the upcoming SU5 adaptation patch of the scenery.

Was the radar tower on the east already there in 1998? But I can anyway add one.

Thanks a lot for listening! :D

And yes I believe the radar tower was built along with the south apron in the 90s. Unfortunately it was demolished in 2016.

In the yesterday's update (on simmarket) a couple of points from your list has been addressed...

Hello

There seem to be several 'street lights' dotted around the runway, especially the 31 end during hours of darkness. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

Hi Patrick
This is correct and unfortunately there is no workaround for that. These are street lights of the default scenery.
