In this video, I give my review of the P3D v4 version of LatinVFR’s Hartford Bradley International Airport KBDL. We will be taking a look at the building and ground modeling and textures, included SODE features, seasonal variation, and more.

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

FlightSimLabs A321-X: The FSElite First Look

FlightSimLabs A321 X The FSElite First Look
I have used other aircraft comparable to the FlightSimLabs A321-X, but no other developer has even come close as what FlightSimLabs does with this Airbus aircraft. I have used other aircraft within the same price range, a number of them I might add, and none of them immerses me in the cockpit with the same quality sounds, visuals and system
