Heraklion X preview (product released, topic closed)

Recommended Posts

Absolutely amazing detail, specially in the surroundings! Look at that football field there next to the threshold of rwy09... and that guy's balcony right at the end of the runway, every time I'm on a turnaround at LGIR I wonder whether he feels lucky or doomed!?! I wish FSX could give us the possibility to show the uneven terrain between rwy and taxiway and the terrible bumps on the runway itself... Even if you make a perfect touchdown pax still think your landing was terrible because the plane bounces like hell at it settles on the runway all the way until rollout! Seems the only things Emilios has left out where the impossible to model ones! On a personal note I really would prefer the tower's windows to be dark at night instead of light green but maybe that's just me. Add my NGX too to the list of the ones waiting to burn some rubber on rwy27 guys!

Emilios, I think you've placed yourself in the hall of fame of scenery designers. I think you've created what will become my favourite airport in de mediterranean! Just plain increadible and beautiful!

Fantastic! I really like this first picture where you can see the custom buildings reaching almost the threshold of the runway. The airport is almost "embedded" in the town.

Thanks guys!

Indeed the runway is 'in' the town on one side (09), and on the cliff above the sea on the other (27). It's pretty amazing if you ask me.

Most of these recognisable details you see would not be possible without our collaborator, Ioannis Dermitzakis, who actually lives there!! Sure no-one can model these more accurately ;)

Emilios, my brother!

Your screenshots like this one make my heart beat like crazy:

Plus they make my AirSimmer airbus wildly jump around the hangar (luckily the door is heavily locked).

The summer holiday season has started, so your scenery, together with FSDG's HESH, is a hot cake desired by many!

Please show us as many screenshots as possible to lessen the pain of waiting.

Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ

The tower's windows are greenish in real life, it's sun-blocking glass, so that's how it looks when there's light inside. :)

Magnificent work Emilie, can't wait to see more. :)

When I asked, I was told that it's illegal to photograph the base. Maybe with your mother they might let you snatch some pictures, just be careful not to get her in trouble!
