Title: MS Flt Sim 2020 for Honolulu
Post by: robert28844 on September 07, 2020, 11:23:32 pm
Will there be any update to this great Addon for the new Microsoft Flight Sim. This was by far the most accurate out there to date....even smoked FS 2020 default airport for Honolulu. I do a lot of real world flying out of this airport.

We have announced PHNL is going to be remade for MSFS 2020 a while ago.

I am just curious since it has been several months. Where does the Honolulu Airport sit on the Roadmap for release for MS2020. i know it may take time just wanted an update if possible.

Several months it's nothing for an airport of this size that is being remade from scratch, it's not a conversion from the previous version, it's being rebuilt from the ground up for MSFS 2020 so, it's will be released when it's ready, there are no problems whatsoever with it, it's just a lot of work.

Dear Umberto,
Please understand I am NOT trying to rush you, or anyone into getting the product out. I of anyone would know how much work goes into making an airport. I tried making the airport personally, with the FS2020 SDK and just to get one taxiway down the way you like it takes several hours or if not days of work. So please dont get on attack mode. I was just trying to see if you have a roadmap (NOT a due date)..... but a list of what is going to be worked on. In example, we will be working on this airport then this one, then this one. As I know it take time to get to these rolled out due to bugs, or SDKs that don't have what you need.... so are waiting for updates/patches that include them.  Just wanted to know if there was a Airport to do list, that is all. I hope you have a great day sir.
Sincerely,
Robert

Hi Robert, as Umberto already said, the Honolulu airport requires a lot of work and is difficult to quantify. What I can tell you is that among many things we are working on it. Right now I'm doing the modeling and texturing of various hangars and buildings, and there are tens if not hundreds. And part of the terminal facilities are ready. But the work is still a lot, PHNL is full of different buildings and structures so it requires some attention. I think surely we will have to wait at least this spring to see some screenshots, just to give you a time frame.

Spring and summer past beautifully and automn is around the corner. Hope development is going well and that we will see some screenshots in due time. I am sure I speak for all of us who want to lay our hands on this addon the very first day that quality takes time and we all want quality :)

We don't have any news about PHNL right now. Sim Update 5 was a disaster, and stopped us for months, because the editor was so bugged and unusable ( it crashed continously ), that we had to go back working on some updates for P3D, because we couldn't progress much with airports for MSFS. We should have released KCLT months ago...

We'll release KCLT in the next few days, then KIAH will follow later on, then likely KMEM. Then, the scenery author will might go back to PHNL. The rest of FSDT is all at work on GSX.

Such a shame about sim update 5 messing up things... hope to see it next year some time thanks for the update Umberto.

Is there any update on the FS2020 Honolulu Airport. I know it was put on the back burner due to sim update 5. Just curious if it has made any progress. I love your product and can’t wait to see it in fs2020. As the basic scenery that came with the sim fs2020 has many issues, your software will make it a awesome addition to those that live here in Hawaii. Thanks for your time.

Quoting from my previous post:

We did release KCLT, but KIAH is not out yet, and work on KMEM hasn't even started so, from the previous post, you might have some idea about PHNL.

Appears to be in same backlog as kpit. All marbles in msfs2020 and zero for p3dv5.  So when bugs in msfs,all work grinds to halt.

User stopped buying for P3D months ago, we only sell like a few GSX, but sales of sceneries has basically stopped so, we are respecting users whishes voting with their wallets, who are clearly telling us to work mainly on MSFS.

About "bugs" in MSFS, yes, SU5 Update was a catastrophic release, with the PC version completely crippled to make the Xbox version possible, and it came with so many bugs that we couldn't do much until they were fixed ( months later ), KCLT was delayed several months because of this, and this delayed the following products as well.

But SU9 is a different story, it's far more stable, it has many interesting features we are already using for GSX, and we are quite confident SU10 will be even better, since it seems Microsoft have finally realized a new release needs more serious testing, so they'll run the beta for about 3 months, instead of the usual 4/5 weeks.

Glad to hear ASOBO/Microsoft is starting to figure things out. I'm loving the new platform now that better aircraft are becoming available. Just disappointed I won't get to see my home airport PHNL in the new sim any time soon. Either way, keep up the great work! Looking forward to GSX

Also an old user of all FSDT Hawaii airports for FSX along with GSX.  Looking forward to a new PHNL with the new terminal and SWA gates some day.
