Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport is an incredibly busy airport; it’s the busiest and biggest airport in the world. It has about a million aircraft movements and more than 100 million passengers every year. It’s a major hub for Southwest, but Delta is the main airline in Atlanta. Atlanta is also jokingly called “Delta International Airport”. The airport has about 300 stands spreading across 4700 acres.
And that size is exactly the problem, because modelling an airport that big in a simulator that is always limited on performance is quite the challenge. And besides the usual look and feel of the scenery, performance will be the major focus of the review.
Installation and configuration
The installation process was easy. Simply run the installer and that was all. Or so I thought, because the SODE jetways didn’t work. I had to manually download and move the SODE files to the correct folders to get it to work. However, after I fixed those issues I had no problems enjoying the scenery. (EDIT: SODE Jetways are now available via the configuration menu. Check out this post for more info: ImagineSim Scenery SODE Update.) Imaginesim also provides you with the usual documentation, including some information about the airport, a chart, and a guide of how the docking system works. It also includes a nice FAQ section at the back of the document.
First, I had to choose the options I wanted. There is a special configurator for the scenery where you have a range of options. Simply select the options you want, and it automatically configures your scenery. There is also a option to turn off dynamic lighting, choose seasons and many more.
