The bashing of Blueprint needs to stop.

It's allowed to criticize sceneries if you don't like them. Why is that whining or being disloyal to the hobby?
I think Blueprint sceneries look like freeware from FS98, but I can see that people appreciate them for their low FPS, ok fair enough, but that doesn't make them look better.

Blueprint has been out there for quite some time now, and they still exist, so obviously they have costumers, so be it, but I don't have to like them, nor do I have to stay quiet about not liking them.

There's a huge difference between "I don't care for their designs or the way their sceneries look" and the alternative that I regularly see that is something like- "their sceneries suck" or "blueprints stuff is crap". If you don't like it, then don't buy it. If you don't like it and want to talk about how you don't like it then be an adult and learn to express yourself like one. That's the point I'm making.

skydivan: Same here... I certainly got my values worth and then some. Completely happy with my purchase 100%. I'm actually more disappointed in other more popular brands to tell you the truth.

This has probably been mentioned, but If it is, feel free to just disregard my post.

What about YSSY, for both FS9/FSX. Tell me when the last decent payware rendition of this world famous airport was done? Orbx have said that they do not plan to do it. They say the default is good enough or something along those lines....but cmon who are they kidding? VOZ did an OK job but still it wasn't much of a step up from default, and of course that was freeware so there's nothing to complain about, it served me well for years, but I think it's fair that we get some decent treatment for Sydney.

Feel free to shoot down anything I said! :D

Hey Jirayu.

Phuket is all yours. We picked Montreal instead.
Looks very good from those shots too.
CYUL is a good choice, I appreciate this decision.
And Dubai fsx is not done by flytampa? So who then does it?

YSSY for FSX would interest me also.

In fact, any airport that is a base for a company that operates A380s, would.

A good small airport for you is Houston hobby that airport is untouched by the rest of the flight sim community plus its also a southwest airlines hub.

Both have been done for freeware. I believe someone is working on a BWI as we speak.

If YSSY was done it would have to include the buildings in Sydney like Hong Kong, as the approach to 16R and 16L past the city is just an amazing experience, similar to Kai Tak. The evening view into Sydney during approach is nothing short of spectacular. Not saying the whole city needs to be done in photoreal, but at least covering from North Sydney/Crows Nest to the airport. The lights from the city in the night are amazing. Also you could do a New Years Eve and Australia Day (Jan 26th) fireworks displays utilizing the Sydney Harbor Bridge.

I am sure in Martin wants help with photos I can help and hopefully find others to help as well.

I do want both FS9 and FSX.

I don't know who it is, but look at previous threads here, there will be one for BWI.

You can download a good version of BWI which will work in FSX and also Wash D.C. area as freeware. He also has a reworked versi0on of KSEA which works in FSX.

IN order for KSEA to work you must have the original KSEA from Fly Tampa.
