Overall Summary
Hartford Bradley will mostly appeal to those looking for domestic US commercial flight operations with occasional niche international flights. While modeling and texturing in the primary use area (in this case the main terminal) is general well done, other buildings and parts of the airport feel overlooked or rushed. The airport performs well but has a large list of small annoyances that build up to detract from the overall experience. If the missing structures could be added and have fixes made to the taxiways, runways, and ramp markings and their interactions with imagery, the product would be significantly improved
Likes
Dislikes
  • Incorrect or missing ground markings
  • Odd appearance going from paved surfaces to imagery
  • Missing structures or objects
  • Repetitive or stop-start nature of SODE weather effects
  • Divisive line cutting down entire length of coverage area and through the airport

Turning Onto Finals
MK-Studios Tenerife Volume 1 Version 2 is a wonderfully made product. The texturing of the island and Tenerife South Airport are masterfully created and the modelling and use of PBR materials keep the airport in-line with modern standards. For a price of 20 euros, or $23.27 US, Tenerife vol1 v2 is well worth the money, and as an added bonus, owners of MK Studios previous Tenerife vol 1 can upgrade to this new version for only 5 euro through simMarket or for free through MK Studios own online store. There are just a couple very minor issues with the airport that could be fixed, but they are barely noticeable already.
