Buildings & Clouds Q&A

Tears of Joy

Wow! This update is gonna be amazing! Can’t wait to have buildings in the sim!

Awesome! Thanks for the Q&A. Great job IF team. You all are amazing.

That would be nice to hear❤️😎🤙

This is amazing to see. I am very excited to see the first iterations of buildings when they eventually get added. Great updates after great updates, the IF team never disappoints us and continue to be strong in their works. Sometimes I think they need a break.

Will we get some HSBC airbridge?

Just to be extra clear: “Project Metal” is not something to “wait” for. It is an ongoing effort to improve our low level graphics engine in order to unlock the ability to bring better graphics and more performance to the sim.

Thank-you goes to @philippe for answering all of the questions and @MishaCamp for assembling them all. I only put it all together. 🙂

I’d suggest reading the blog post. It covers this.

We have to be realistic here; there are a lot of airports in the world with very unique features. It would take a HUGE amount of time to make all those airports look like the real one. We will explore the possibility to have bespoke buildings down the road but it will take time

Yes, it is amazing this update

So Project Metal won’t be, say, exclusively some sort of a 21.x or 22.x update that changes the sim completely, but it’ll come step by step as hot fixes every now and then?

EDIT: Got your reply, 100% clear now, thanks!

Will the ground vehicles be static, moveable but automatically, or manually moveable?

Static for now. But would love to make them move eventually.

Also all will be left-hand drive (the proper and non-insane way).
