Scenery Release : KORD - Chicago O'Hare International v3 by Nimbus Studios


Nimbus Simulation Studios have released an update to their KORD - Chicago O'Hare scenery to v3. Chicago's O'Hare International is already a huge favorite with X-Plane users and this welcome update will only add in more detail and the brilliant X-Plane11 dynamics and features.


First visual impressions...  it is mightily impressive!

Choice of WT3 traffic and ground routes which are provided, or the static aircraft version are both included. Terminal and gate detail is excellent and now KORD is up there with the very best of American airport sceneries.

Featured walking animated terminal passengers are not a gimmick...  it works and looks highly realistic!   Note the real time gate signage Information screens that show time, pressure, temperature, destination airport, departure time, delay and the amount of delay time.... impressive and realistic.

KORD's runways and taxiway textures are now X-Plane11 dynamic, look excellent...  3d taxiways are still present and clutter in ramp and landside is far, far better than the earlier KORD v2. Empty boundary surroundings have also been addressed and the airport feels now fully formed and built in.

Night lighting is updated and very good if a little heavy handed...
