NEWS! - Scenery Release : KLGA – La Guardia International Airport 2023 by FeelThere

 

FeelThere La Gardia 2023 Header news.jpg

 

La Gardia airport, New York is one of the most iconic airports in the world, it is also the most dangerous with it's complex approaches and short runways. But overall it was really an old airport, a 1940's 50s design in a modern world (it was originally opened in October 15, 1939), as the issues of totally outdated facilities required a change on a massive scale.

 

So the New York Port Authority finally decided to do a full redesign of La Gardia for the 2020's, and that meant removing almost everything of the old terminals and rebuilding a completely new modern facility, which is mostly to be finished in 2023, and finally in 2025.

 

So here is a new release of the coming La Gardia 2020 vision for the X-Plane Simulator, but not the first scenery of the conversion as AirportTech released a La Gardia 2020 way back in 2016. It was at the time very good but a bit soul-less as well, and after the iconic master of the original La Gardia, I don't think it gave out any feel of the new world.

 

This new version of LGA, has also an odd birth from newcomers FeelThere. The original release video actually had the stock X-Plane Global Airport active instead of the custom scenery...  a real "what the" moment, then the X-Plane.OrgStore had no preview images either? all very unprofessional for a pro custom product. Now everything has been fixed, but plus also the scenery comes with now an almost embarrassing low price of US$9.95, or is that a misprint on the original US19.95? Anyway you do get a great scenery for a low, low price...

 

Features
  • High detail models
  • Detailed satellite imagery surrounding the airport
  • Auto gate animated jetways (free SAM plugin required)
  • Highly detailed textures with reflections and night lighting
  • 3D grass
  • 4K asphalt and concrete ground textures that cover the entire airport

Another point is that currently the Feelthere LGA is Windows only at this time, and is not compatible with Mac or Linux platforms, which is because the scenery uses an .exe installer to install the scenery.

 

A quick view of the FeelThere LGA, is that it is very good, certainly for the low price...
