  TNCC 2017 - Real development
Posted by: LarsA - 07-25-2017, 04:20 AM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - Replies (11)

TNCC is my "Homebase", so thank you very much for this unexpected update! Well done!
There is a lot of development at the real airport these days and I have to fly a lot from TNCC to the other islands for my job as a forensic pathologist.
For example, the "Jetcenter" in the east of the main terminal looks different now than TNCC 2017 (  http://www.jetcentrecuracao.com ).
Also, the main terminal will change the next months.
If you are interested, I can send you actual pictures for a future update....  Wink
Best regards from Curacao

  TNCC P3Dv4 and SODE
Posted by: xkoote - 07-11-2017, 04:33 PM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - Replies (6)

Hello guys,

was wondering if there are plans of refreshing TNCC 2013 to be P3D v4 compatible
possibly with CTRL+J or SODE jetways? Or is it too old?

  Prepar3d v4 Scenery.cfg Encoding Issue
Posted by: TropicalSim - 07-11-2017, 02:38 PM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - No Replies

Hi all,

We've noticed some users have had issue with the automatic scenery library insertion of Antigua 2017 in Prepar3d v4. It seems Lockheed Martin changed the character encoding of the file, so the previous method of editing the scenery.cfg file is resulting in a messed up config for some.

In order to fix this, go to C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 and rename the backup file the installer makes before editing "Scenery_Before_VC Bird TAPA P3Dv4.CFG" to "scenery.cfg". Now just open P3Dv4 and manually insert the scenery entry.

We have replaced the P3Dv4 installer with a new one which uses Prepar3d's own command line argument to insert the library entry, so if you go to your simmarket account to redownload the fixed installer you'll see the problem is gone.

Best Regards,

Leandro Machado

Hello everyone,

As we have stated here many times before, we work with more than one product at once, and when one of them nears completion we go full steam on that one, so whilst you have seen two previews of Albuquerque - USA, the finished and released airport is actually V.C. Bird International Airport - Antigua and Barbuda.

The new version features the new terminal complete with 3d details, SODE optional jetways, the new apron layout has been represented on our scenery, the extension at runway 07 has also been represented. The old terminal has been repainted from the pink-ish color to a light gray to match the very very white new terminal, which we have added plenty of ambient occlusion shadows to break all that white and give it that realistic look.

We have two new changes regarding our product line with this release... as expected, enters Prepar3d v4 support. This mean an exclusive installer for P3Dv4 (Not shared like P3D v2 and v3) with full native P3Dv4 SDK usage, including dynamic lights. This means an installer for FSX, FSX:SE and P3Dv1, another installer for P3D v2 and v3, and a third installer for P3Dv4.

The second change is that we will begin to phase out FS9 creation, and the FS9 version has been separated from the FSX/P3D versions so we can know exactly how the market is responding to this simulator.

All good things come to an end, and FS9 was a great thing, but with what we now have in Prepar3d v4, the distance has grown considerably larger between them and if we are to keep on improving and adding new features, we cannot continue to be able to be held back by FS9 restrictions and limitations, since it already misses out on specular maps, larger resolution textures, zbias code for native sdk usage for ground, dynamic lights, real-time reflections among all other new materials/items since FS9 > FSX > P3D v1/2/3/4.

Anyway, enough technical talk, here are some screens. For all screens see the FS9 or FSX/P3D sales pages:

  KABQ - Albuquerque Airport - Preview #2
Posted by: TropicalSim - 06-21-2017, 03:08 PM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - Replies (6)


Here is out second set of preview for Albuquerque International Sunport Airport. The main pax terminal is taking shape as you can see in the screens here as well as the cargo area with the UPS and FEDEX building, as well as the Swissport Fueling area. Remember it's a work in progress, lot's to be done, the ground poly has had no work done as of yet so it's just a placeholder at the moment.

  How can I purchase the 2012 version of Rio de Janeiro Galeão Airport?
Posted by: TAM8547 - 06-14-2017, 05:55 PM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - Replies (3)

Hi all,
is it possible to purchase the 2012 version and not the 2016 version? I just dont like the new terminals the same as in Sao Paulo Guarulhos. They just dont fit in the airport. The difference is too strong between the old and the new terminals but fortunately I bought Sao Paulo Guarulhos many years ago so I still have the original version of TropicalSim SBGR.
But since I still havent SBGL it would be nice to purchase original 2012 version. Would that be possible?
Best regards,

  KABQ - Albuquerque Airport _Fisrt preview
Posted by: Coral Sea - 05-29-2017, 01:00 AM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - Replies (1)

Hi Folks!  Smile

Here's our first Albuquerque/KABQ preview.

Showing some airport areas only:

- the parking building featuring it's solar panels.
- the main entrance region.
- the Sheraton and other parking areas.
No terminal building on this preview.

Please note, this is just an inicial preview, a lot of work yet to be done.
No cars, no renderized shadows, no AO, no people, no dedicated ground work, no other eye-candies, but we think you will be able to have an idea of what is coming ahead on this scenery.
Hope you enjoy it  Wink

  KOMA Omaha Updated v1.1
Posted by: TropicalSim - 03-31-2017, 02:09 PM - Forum: TropicalSim Forum - No Replies

Hi everyone,

We've just released a major update to our Omaha airport, which is now version 1.1. Customers who have purchased have by now been notified by simmarket of the update. See the change log below:

• Re-textured Signature complex with baked textures (ambient occlusion)
• Inclusion of company logos on the east apron hangars
• Inserted gate number markings
• Additional apron-side objects added
• Cranked up the detail on the airport road entrance (We decided to push a
little more due to good feedback of FPS and VAS performance)
• Reworked hard winter airport ground texture to a much more realistic
snow cover appearance
• Replaced "brick" wall textures of the terminal and parking garage
• Added volumetric halo effect to the main apron floodlights (FSX and
Prepar3d v1, v2 & v3 only)
• Added volumetric grass to the islands of the airport and around
taxiways/runways (FSX and Prepar3d v1, v2 & v3 only)
• Added 3D lights to the roads and highways of the photoreal area (FSX
and Prepar3d v1, v2 & v3 only)
• Added soft snow cover effect above aprons, taxiways and runways during
heavy winter season (FSX and Prepar3d v1, v2 & v3 only)
• Added wet surface layer to FSX ground (FSX, P3D v1 only, SODE
• Added wet surface layer and specular effect to the native material P3D
v2/v3 optional ground (SCASM is the default ground due to inability of
seasonal textures on P3D v2/v3 models) (Prepar3d v2 & v3 only)
• New installer coding for FSX/P3Dv1 version that allows user to select
between FSX/FSX-SE/P3Dv1 whose path will be located from the registry
and option to automatically insert the necessary entry into the scenery.cfg
• New installer coding for P3Dv2/P3Dv3 version that allows user to select
between P3Dv2/P3Dv3 whose path will be located from the registry and
option to automatically insert the necessary entry into the scenery.cfg file
• Autogen Configuration Merger tool integrated into the installer
(FSX/P3Dv1 and P3Dv2/P3Dv3) to add necessary autogen entry to the
default.xml file (required for 3D lights)

Here are some images from the airport:
