Nantucket Progress

The modeling of the north side of the field is nearly complete! I’ve been dialing in a group of buildings, including the checkerboard “Nantucket” hangar. Next stop: the main terminal.

    Wow Bill…looks so realistic and that is my first view of the gas station and Ocean Wing building as well.

    Looks fantastic.

    I just wish I didn’t get pessimistic feelings about frame-rates when I see this sort of detail. Although I’m sure you’re using your considerable skills to minimise that 😉

    The beauty of Nantucket is that it’s an island, far enough away from the mainland that only the immediately surrounding autogen and terrain are loaded into memory, giving me more headroom to add details without overloading the sim. So far in testing, the frame rate impact is minimal.

    Don Paquette flies to Nanatucket once a week from Plum Island.. If you need any more photos he’ll be glad to take them. This is a great enterprize. The Northeast is way overdue for airports. Except for you 2B2 there’s nothing much else.
