ShortFinal Design Releases KLAX HD

C400 132

Hailed by many as one of the X-Plane community’s most talented scenery artists, ShortFinal Design has released the much-anticipated KLAX – Los Angeles International HD.

The scenery depicts the world’s fifth busiest passenger airport in spectacular detail, with custom models as far as the eye can see. All buildings are baked with Ambient Occlusion, while objects and the high-resolution ground textures have their own dynamic reflections.
The LAX Gateway pylons have animated lighting at night, while the rest of the scenery is given HDR lighting throughout. Also animated are the airport information boards on the terminals, as well as custom jetways and DGS at all gates (utilising the AutoGate plugin).
Giving the scenery some life is animated airport vehicles through the use of GroundTraffic, while landside parking spots are filled with an enormous amount of static vehicles. Secure side, there are 311 parking positions which are filled with randomly placed static aircraft, and World Traffic 3 users can expect routes to be included for their AI traffic.
Finally, the entire scenery is built upon 15cm/px photo-scenery, and the footprint is based on a custom mesh – adding realistic sloped runways and taxiway underpasses.

The regular price for this scenery is $26.95, but at release this scenery is available for $24.95 in the X-Plane.org July 4th sale. Head to the X-Plane.org store to pick up a copy.

This guy is a absolute genius

Looks like this XP11 version of LAX blows away the FSDreamTeam release by miles!

@HereThen X Plane fanboys are the type of people who compare FS2004 with no addons to an X Plane installation that has every mod under the sun and 10tb of Ortho4XP

True, as anything in XP!

Well you compare a scenery just released with one that was released 7 years ago with FS2004 technieques.

It better be blowing it out of the sky 😂
