FSElite Exclusive: Gaffersimulations Or Tambo International Airport Previews

OR Tambo International Airport Gaffer Exc07

Gaffer Simulations are relatively unknown within the flight sim community, but they’re looking to make big waves very soon with a release of O.R Tambo International Airport. The South African airport near Johannesburg is one of the largest in the country and has many routes in and out on a frequent basis.

The renders sent to us exclusively showcase the work that has been so far completed on this project. The developer, Gaffer Simulations, tells us that the scenery will be exclusively for P3Dv4 and will feature high quality building models and texturing, custom ground polys, dynamic lighting and SODE jetways.

Below are a mix of both renders and in-sim shots representing the current WIP state of the project.

The project has been predicted to be 80% complete by the team and when it’s ready, will be available via SimMarket. This project looks like it could accompany FDSG’s Cape Town quite nicely in the future!

Having developed Lanseria International Airport in the past, the team have shown a desire to create scenery at a reasonable price for the quality shown above.

Not that much of a jump from default, really depends on the price point but I would rather have FSDG doing this airport as a lite version much better value for your money.

Looks like nmg. The south world scenery Joburg is much more in the P3D standard . Maybe soon introduced on fs elite

Doesnt look much better than NMG…

Oh, come on. With all due respect, but how can developers still take money for a scenery that looks like default, only with some individual touches? It’s 2018, not 2004.

Wait for ages then two appear at the same time. These guys and ‘South World Scenery’ are planning to release their versions of FAOR before the end of this year it seems.

They both look like they’re of a similar standard, so I wonder which one will perform better on my PC and on my wallet?
