• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Time passes quickly. Just want to refresh the EDDV project with some new impressions from the development, although it slowed down over the last weeks. Nevertheless we are happy with some new progress we want to share.

First two pictures show the old tower, dressed up with some textures in Blender. Note: we are going to do a remake of the textures here again, but it will look like it does now. Last one shows a early render of the "TUI-headquarter"
Some things to mention: We restarted the development on the terminal complex, did improvements to the new tower and modeled a lot of other buildings. Last but not least the GP assumes shape. Hopefully we can show these things in the next post :)

Have a nice weekend and stay healthy

Good evening everyone,

after some time we want to share some new impressions of the progress on this project.
First we finished our first textures on a building.

And the last one shows the rebuild of the tower-building (compare to the pics on the first page in this thread)

As always we hope you like them and stay healthy. We are going to show you more textured buildings in the next post, but we are hope you are also pleased with some renders :)

Hello everyone,
hope you enjoy the new sim as much as we do. I am excited to show you two fresh impressions out of MSFS2020. We tested our models first, to get an impression of the appearance here and we are quite amazed :)
As I mentioned, this was only a quick look how everything work and we are happy to bring EDDV to the new simulator also. But here are the shots

Next step is to test our textures too and learn more about the behaviour of the simulator and the SDK.
Many thanks to the community for helping and the documentation so far.

Hey guys,

we are still working on the airport. First we reorganized ourself, so that we are now focusing on some main topics to complete things step by step. As two of us are working hard on Groundpoly, textures included, I mainly going for the apron vehicle in general. Keep in mind: These models were modeled as detailed as we can, to get the best out of them, when we get over to implement them in the sims.We will see how detailed they will later on.

We got a preview of the apron vehicle, already finished. We hope that we can give you more previews soon of the Groundpoly-Texture work. Stay tuned.

Last but not least, we want to announce that we are looking for new fellows who want to join our team. This project is a freetime developing so it needs a lot of time to show some progress. If you are interested to become a part of our team, feel free to contact me, or come over to our discord (https://discord.gg/RvTYapT) for more information and get into dialog. We would love to hear from you, also if you can take reference airport pictures.

Hey guys,

we got a update for you. Work on the GP is still in progress, while I nearly finished the high detailed model of the first jetway (one more jetway type will be done afterwards). On the preview picture you also can see the finished model of Terminal D, ready for some textures (on the right side).
Last but not least we continued the work on the main terminal complex and hope we can show you more soon.

Hello everone. It was a bit quiet at our project but now I think we can tell you some intern information here. First, as of numerous RL activities of our members there wasnt a really big step forward.
I continued to develope more apron vehicle and I finished three more buildings. One of them you can see attached, ready for texture. This one is the security station to get access to the apron. One of us is figuring out which impact the high detailed apron vehicle on the fps get (therefore a pushback truck was nearly fully textured and placed multiple times in sim. Dont know if we shall show this, cause the model may not be the one, used in the product later). Hopefully we can take time, to finish the old tower soon and continue work on the parking areas and the terminals.
Last but not least I am very happy and pleased to announce that @Senchay joined our team. He will develope buildings etc very soon, after completing his very first 3D-project. Go and check it out. He also will update his project on our discord, so join us, if you want to :)
Lots of words, so here is the above named security complex. As detailed as it gets.
Stay tuned, we will continue the project :)

Hello everbody,

I got another preview for you. I finished the remodeling of the Air Cargo complex (in the background of the image), together with the interior of the main tower. A lot of detail, we will see, how we can get this to the sim later :D

Nothing to say more. We got nearly 4 buildings ready for textures completely now. Hope we can push a bit forward :)

Hello everbody,

Since I focused on reorginizing, the progress slowed down, but I want to show some images because the last one was taken some time ago. So here are two previews of the upcoming car parks near the main terminal complex. They are not 100% finished but the are in a very far stage. On the last one you can the the difference (hopefully not a lot^^) between reallife and model.

Last but not least I want to call attention to our hiring for Crossfeed Design. We are still looking for talented designers with passion and sense for details. If you got any question or want more information feel free to contact me via PM or via our Discord :)
See you soon

Hello everone,
we got some updates for you (a lot of time pasts since the last post). We continue the terminal-modeling, finished all jetway types and the rework on the old tower are nearly completed.
To show the progress done yet, I attach an overview preview which shows the main buildings with the terminal and the surrounduing models. We have more in pipeline for sure.

We are still looking for reference photos and people who want to join our small team ;)

Stay save and best regards

Small update from us,
first: we are still looking for some colleague to join our team. If you are interested in developing at EDDV, EDMA or something else later on, please contact me :)

Back to our previews. Here are two from the firestation and the new arrived firefighter station. Modeling is finished here.

Hope you like them, until next time!
BR

P.S.: I am a bit tired of doing EDDV for the whole time. So I am thinking of starting something else for some variation and maybe someone wants to jump in our team more easiliy, if we start a different airport. I have on my mind an airport like Frankfurt EDDF. Modelwise I would go with this challenge, but to finish this kind of project, we would need some support :) Let me know, what you think ;)

Hello guys,

I got just a quick shot for you of the area I am working at right now. Basically the Cargo area near the main tower. One more building and some other things are also nearly completed. Hopefully we can share next time in a bigger update.
Maybe one more important point to announce: we Found some guys who can provide nearly all picture we need for modeling/texturing. This is a big step forward which also provides even more details :D

BR and until next time.
