First announced back in January of 2017, FlyTampa has finally brought Las Vegas McCarran Airport to the sim world, and the strip along with it. McCarran International Airport is the main airport for Las Vegas, just a few short miles away from the strip. First opened in 1942, with the first commercial flight operated from the airport in 1948, the airport has grown to handle over 49 million passengers a year. Las Vegas serves as a focus city for Frontier, Southwest, Spirit and Sun Country. It is also the main base for Allegiant Air. Vegas is also home to Janet Airlines which shuttles workers to and from Area 51.
Installing Vegas is straight forward. The FlyTampa Universal installer needs to be downloaded, and after that, all that is required is your email and serial. From there, you then confirm which version of the scenery will be downloaded, and you are on your way. Updating the scenery is simple as well. Simply run the universal installer again, input your information, and you will be able to select the newest version of the scenery to be installed.
The scenery is automatically added to your sim through the new addon system. The installer also takes care of installing SODE, making the entire installation process very easy.
The FlyTampa Configurator comes with many options to choose from to customise the scenery. The configurator divides these options into two sections: one for the airport, and one for the city. With the airport options, you are able to change things ranging from toggling static aircraft, the type of glass transparency for the terminal to apron details, and more. The city options allow the user to control where animated vehicles will appear, the animations of the billboards and lights, as well as toggle the Bellagio fountain, Mirage volcano, and more. With the options turned to the lowest option, Vegas still offers a great experience visual experience.
