Tsotumo Urakawa has made three new titles to supplement the well-known Japan Scenery photorealistic airports; Tokyo Haneda, Takamatsu Airport and Sendai Airport. The modules exist of sets of ground vehicles for these airports and can be purchased seperately from simMarket. You need the Japanese Scenery Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 for the vehicles.

These add-ons are vital for those who want to render Tokyo Haneda, Takamatsu Airport and Sendai Airport with some verisimilitude. Without the ground vehicles, your sim airport won't have the same realism that it will with this update.

Tsutomu Urakawa is further enlarging his incredible body of work. Having done the aircraft and base textures on scores of downloads for Microsoft Flight Simulator, his work on these three airport sets of ground vehicles is simply superb. Why are ground vehicles an important part of the flight sim atmosphere? Because they play such a key role in the initial process of getting ready to take off, and then greeting the plane when it comes in, that if you do not have them for your airport, then your simulator will not realistically show the landing process – and your sim will not have what it needs to replicate the real procedure. Indeed, in a lot of the flight simulator games, failing to use the ground vehicles correctly can lead to terrible scores.

There are many forums that are simply dedicated to the correct way to use ground vehicles in scores of different flight simulator games. The best part is that the solutions to these problems are often highly complex, as there are plug-in software packages that are not just designed for the ground vehicles themselves, but also for giving the user easier ways to move their ground vehicles correctly – and quickly.

For those fans of Japan Scenery airports, these new releases by Tsutomu Urakawa are an exciting opportunity for flight sim enthusiasts to take the next step in building their own environments – and figuring out the best ways to improve their sim environments. If Urakawa's work is new to you, check it out today. You definitely will not regret it.
