Hey martin, thank you for making this scenery and thank you for making it for FS9 just out of curiosity are the jetways going to have the HSBC logo on them?

No, some of the connecting towers however have the Dubai-Group ads on them.

Done, new shot attached, also with slightly greener glass.

Because the coverage is about 4 times that of Hong Kong there is unfortunately no chance I can build customized high-es perfection everywhere. There are limitations on the amount of texture sheet, general performance worries, development-time limitations etc etc. The city overall is similar to Hong Kong in terms of quality and resolution. In other words, can't drive a car down Sheikh Zayed Road and see street signs.

PS: The skydive runway is there and you can land on it, but the overall area down there is meant to be enjoyed from a certain altitude if you know what i mean... Doesn't look stellar from ground level.

Martin Thank you sooooooo much for listening to us.... Seeing this last shot makes me really feel excited ...'
'The green tinge is perfect. I also saw the third airbridge on upper level... amazing...

As a small time designer myself I know how challenging are dubai structures to design towards accuracy and I feel honored to see your work here ....
There is always room towards perfection but I am very ecstatic to see your work. Definitely buying this.

Finally for the docking stations, will you be adding dubai advertisement? I have a lot of photographs I took of airport as much as i could on my last trip to dubai. If you are interested I can send you them :)


Also a quick side question: On my last trip to dubai airport I noticed a lot of emirates airlines banner around some of near building around the airport (such as the blue building in background in ur last screenie) and terminal, did you leave them out on purpose as to ensure this scenery stays unpolitical ?

Let him finish the scenery please guys. Billboards change all the time & this is a massive scenery created by ONE guy. We can't be expected to implement all the details you observe in reallife or keep up with large amount of construction in the area.

Unless of course you'd be kind enough to arrange for me to fly to Dubai for a photo shoot. I'll do you the changes ASAP
p.s. Scenery designers don't fly coach & prefer 5+ star hotels ;)

Wow! Southampton has really changed since my "S***hole Shirley" days! Seems like people in "Sowf'AMp'on" have moved up in the world according to that statement, George mate! :P Joke, my friend. ;) (although I bet Shirley is still a s***hole, which is a joke in itself!)

Anyway, joking aside, I just wanted to say thank you guys for Dubai. Very much appreciated. Keep up this level of excellence. The flight simming community can only become richer thanks to efforts like this from people like you.

Tom.

Martin, thanks a lot. Your responsiveness to suggestions is on the same high standards as your design skills. Please don't feel that you need to apologize in the least for any of the details that I mentioned not being included. Knowing all your other work I trust it is simply stunning. I remember when I posted once how your level of accuracy at St. Barths even had the correct road signs on the hill before the runway.

And thanks for including the Skydive runway! Let's see what other surprising goodies are included. And then I'll wait for others to come up with some add-ons for Jebel Ali DWC airport and Sharjah that fit into your Dubai scenery ;-)

Just saw this added in the new AES update - getting excited now! The 777 should be with us by the end of the year but I was a bit bummed there was no scenery for FSX at OMDB to use along side my EK flights; now you've created this masterpiece! I cannot wait :-)

STUNNING! Absolutely STUNNING!
After all these years of arguing why Dubai was never made for FSX, you finally shut us up!
CC is out and ready. Can't wait to purchase this and take my FDB NGX out for a spin!

Thank you so much for giving us a new Dubai FT!
