Developer Month: Drzewiecki Design Interview

Welcome to the FSElite Developer Month. Our theme this year is about delivering for the community and part of that is delivering great content to you all. As part of our commitment to you all, we’re pleased to announced Developer Month – a month themed solely around celebrating our great development community. Over the course of March, you’ll be treated to some behind the scene looks at some of our favourite developers, stories from the FSElite team, exclusive interviews and more.

Today, we take some time to check out Drzewiecki Design who just released Washington DC for flight sim. Enjoy the interview:

Tell us a little about yourself and how you got started?
Although Drzewiecki Design company was established in late 2008, our first scenery project came out in 2003 (it was a simple airport for FS2002) and the brand itself was created around 2004/2005. The first flight sim I used was FS2000 and later it simply became fun to be able to create own content. Obviously in the beginning it was just fun, nothing more. In 2006 I met Jakub Paczek and the development started to be more serious resulting in the first freeware project released in 2007. It took us almost two months to complete as we were learning most of the tools and techniques from scratch. Today it would probably take 3-4 days…

How many are there in your team and what are your backgrounds before becoming developers?
Currently we have 6 members of the core team but we cooperate with up to 30 other individuals from all over the world – from autogen specialists to video makers.

Washington DC previews from Drzewiecki Design

Set to release in only 4 days Drzewiecki Designs decided to warm us up a little to their next scenery: Washington DC. As the screenshots will show they have done their absolute best and made this city in true Drzewiecki style: the textures look very crisp, very high quality and it seems like no detail has been spared. Even the commander in chief is probably signing some new executive orders in his office.. Washington DC will come with a number of features. One of the features that stands out most is the way they will include airports into the scenery pack. First of all, it will include a high detailed rendition of KDCA including terminal interiors, SODE jetways, beautiful textures and more. Second, other airports, which will come in a “lite” variant, will be KADW Joint Base Andrews, KCGS College Park Airport, KVKX Potomac Airfield and W32 Washington Executive Airport. These lite airports will feature custom airport buildings with realistic ground poly layers. Also included will be a number of helipads.
