• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSXA ZBAA Beijing International Airport for FSX

Hi,
Since there are two places to work in my real life. Each place has computer that I put my project in to decrease my boredom life. Each project is parallel running slowly. I did set up ZBAA project about a month ago. I'd like to post this to make a time stamp how long the project gonna be. My WMKK project is almost done. It should be finished in about a month.
I think a lot of people are making this airport. But I just feel like making Terminal 3 in Beijing International Airport. The shape of the architecture is challenging. I will do this airport no mater what happens. It will takes years. During of the developing process, someone else might launch this airport already. Never mine, I just feel happy to do. Let me be an option to choose or, may be a big freeware, I don't know yet. Time will tell.
Please take a look, it is just in Gmax only. Everything is made from scratch, both models and textures.

Tic, looks nice. But, do you have a desire to provide version for previous sim version? I mean "Century of Flight" :)
 
I come from China, welcome to the Beijing capital international airport! Welcome to the People's Republic of China!

I am working on this. Terminal 3 is very tough to be modeled. I try importing to FSX for the first time and see how it look. It is difficult to spot the mistake in Gmax since the terminal is very biggggg. I think I need a completely new model to smooth something out. What is your opinion? Photoscenery is just a rough guide for position of the building. It need to be remade for seasons and other things such as shadow.

Actually, I had built the whole building again by Loft method but there were a lot of problems. So, I started where I left from here. Now, I have completed the Terminal3 and I have animated trains running between the terminal and I have interior of the terminal 3 with semi transparent glass wall. Will export to FSX and see how those models look. On Monday or Tuesday I will come up with the preview screenshots.

Got a Little question on this Topic...

Are you working this Scenery for FS9 as well, cause I found a scenery of ZBAA on the Internet lately, which pretty much look the same as yours is...
the new terminal is within... but ground textures haven't been made so far... only the photoreal Terrain is visible so far... nonetheless, Ai Traffic parks at the new terminal allready...

Here some Screens of the fs9 Version which runs on my System untill yet...:

There are a lot of teams are making this. That one is not mine. I don't think I will support FS9 any more.
