Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Logo.

This airport was designed with the latest version of ADE (v1.47) made only for the FSX default airport: assigned parking with extra parking, Terminal 3 now included with the airlines assigned to it that use the new terminal, taxiways and taxi signs updated, extra fuel trucks, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from inside the control tower (when in tower view) please view the readme before installation,

There are 2 BGL files: WIII_ADE_RS.BGL and a WIII_ADE_OBJ.BGL file,

The WIII_ADE_OBJ.BGL is the scenery objects file, Please make sure this goes into the correct folder,

To Install:

1. Take the WIII_ADE_RS.BGL file and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder,

2. Take the WIII_ADE_OBJ.BGL file and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Scenery/Global/scenery folder,

3. Start up the Flight sim and the changes will be present,

IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure there is only the WIII_ADE_RS.BGL FILE in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other WIII.bgl to avoid incorrect parking and any other airport conflicts,

To Uninstall:

1. Delete/remove the BGL files and the default will then be active.

And my ever enduring wife to put up with the hours spent making these files.

TIP: when at WIII in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle" allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (i allocated a button on my controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.

Enjoy and Happy flying.

Editorial

Although I’ve never had the pleasure of going to visit the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport before, I had always wanted to. When I seen that this scenery package was finally touching on it and changing the way that it looked, I decided it would be rude of me not to give it a go and see what I thought of this interesting little package!

Given that this is one of the largest airports in Indonesia, it was nice to see it get the treatment needed to make it feel authentic. The default version was basic and dull and this now includes many impressive features and changes to make it feel more realistic. From updated taxiways to extra fuel trucks and much more, you can find that this whole package comes together in the best way.

I would, however, caution that it can be a little bit tough on your simulator. It will be a bit of a challenge to run this as it will add so much extra detail into the simulation. So long as you have a decent machine, though, you should be OK!

The Realism

The first thing that struck me was how similar this mod was to the real thing. It takes the original default design and revamps it entirely, changing more or less everything that should be included. From the new airlines to the improved Terminal 3 being added in right through to signage being change and support vehicles being reworked entirely, this looks totally different to the old package.

Additionally this brings lovely products such as control towers and specific buildings to life, making the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport feel far more realistic than it may have in the past. This removes many of the dull and generic features of the old mod and instead gives you a really interesting, clear take on the real Soekarno-Hatta International Airport!

I was definitely impressed by the level and depth of the realism but I was also incredibly impressed at how well they had managed to blend the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport scenery in with the default. Whilst this reworks so many elements of it, it also makes sure that you can get plenty of recognition for what has been changed.

I took the liberty of flying here with and without the mod and it really is night and day. If you’ve never been to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and want to see it as close to the real-version version as you can, download this mod. I was massively impressed and would be more than happy to look at this in the future again.
