• EDDN Albrecht Dürer Airport Nuremberg

    From Bavaria into the world – now available exclusive for PREPAR3D V4

This add-on brings Bavaria’s second largest international airport in an incomparably authentic and lively atmosphere to Prepar3D V4. Over a development period of around 2.5 years, Lars Pinkenburg and me have rebuild all the buildings and facilities of the real airport on the basis of more than 1,000 photos taken on site with great attention to detail for the simulator. The airport environment was also modeled with great attention to detail and covers a total area of ​​around 55 km², with numerous characteristic buildings, traffic routes and terrain features, so that the depiction is extremely close to reality even during the approach and departure phases.

A special highlight of the scenery are the innumerable and newly developed vehicle and person animations, which contribute significantly to the realistic atmosphere at the airport. A lot of work was also put into the lifelike depiction of the taxiway and apron surfaces.

The scenery addon has been implemented using state-of-the-art – prepar3d native – design techniques which, despite the high model and texture complexity, enable a smooth framerate on current simulator PC hardware.

“…It was really fun to explore this amazingly detailed scenery. Nuremberg shows what is possible in the simulator when two talented developers spend a lot of time to implement an airport as detailed as possible. This attention to detail extends over the entire airport, no corner was left untouched. Also Nuremberg convinces especially with an incredible immersion, thanks to the use of SODE and numerous animations…”

“…On the topic of night lighting I can say this: it’s fantastic! The glow of the terminal lights on the apron, the airport signage, the control tower, and the blue-lit parking garage have me starting all of my flights from this airport at either dawn or dusk…
…With so much visual appeal, it’s easy to think the airport will slow your system to a crawl. Animated vehicles, ramp workers, lighting, and crisp textures usually mean you’re settling in for a PowerPoint presentation instead of a flight. But, in the case of Nuremberg, I was pleasantly surprised. In normal conditions, using the FSLabs A319, I did not experience any stutters or slowdowns…”

“…Approaching runway 28 through the virtually wooded area, the perfect fit into the environment can be noticed, because there are no transitions. This also applies to approaches from the west over numerous fields. The runway was properly fired and marked, which also applies to the taxiways. Both have realistic signs of use. The floor markings and the signage correspond to those of the real airport …
…Each penny for this scenery is well spent money…”
