Sleepless in Seattle


Drzewiecki Design has released two products for FSX and Prepar3D, covering Seattle and surrounding airports.

First up is Seattle City X, which recreates the Seattle metropolitan area including Federal Way, Everett and Redmond. The entire downtown area of Seattle has been modelled in 3D with more than 2000 custom-made buildings such as the Microsoft HQ and the Space Needle – the latter with an avatar-compatible interior.

The surrounding area has been recreated with an optional 2m mesh of Mount Rainier, while objects such as bridges, harbours, heliports, seaplane bases have modelled along with animated cars, trains, trams, ships, and so on.

Seattle Airports X features five main airports in the Seattle area.  First up is Seattle Tacoma (KSEA), which is based on a major reconstruction project of the real airport, due to be completed in 2021.  This includes a new international arrivals facility, modernised satellite terminals and the new Skybridge.  Other airfields include; Paine Field (KPAE); Boeing Field (KBFI), home to Boeing’s final preparation facility for the 737; Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT) where 737NG and MAX are built; and Auburn Municipal Airport (S50). 

Several of the buildings are accessible in Avatar Mode (P3D) such as the Boeing Everett Factory, both delivery centres at KBFI and KPAE as well as all terminals at KSEA.  Other highlights include SODE jetway compatibility, automatic seasonal switching, custom animations along with lighting and custom reflections.  All airports also include static aircraft, animated vehicles, 3D people and custom airport diagrams with stand numbers used by Boeing.

Both packages are designed to be performance friendly, but an optional ‘Lite’ texture pack can provide further performance enhancements.

Seattle Airports X and City X are fully compatible and are designed to work together.  A demo version is also available for both packages, which includes some downtown buildings as well as all airports with low resolution terminal textures, non-animated jetways and generally much less details.  Click here for more information on Seattle Airports X over on Drzewiecki Design and here for Seattle City X.
