Orbx - LDRI Rijeka Airport


Acclaimed developer Rasha Tucakov brings us Rijeka InternationalAirport, the latest in his Croatian resort series.

The airport serves both the city of Rijeka, as well as themultitude of beach resorts located nearby. Since its opening in 1970,the airport has catered primarily to the leisure market, and thesedays is served by low-cost and legacy airlines to destinations acrossEurope, the UK and Israel. Whilst regular visitors include A320s,737s, E-Jets, L-410s and 757s, the airport is also host to a plethoraof corporate traffic, alongside the occasional 747 and MD11 cargoflights. A Croatian Air Force Mi-17 (which has been modeled in thescenery) is based at Rijeka and remnants of the old military base canbe found at the northern end of the field.

Perhaps the most well-known feature of the airport is its strikingBrutalist architecture; both the terminal and tower have beenfaithfully reproduced in this imposing style.


As to be expected from Rasha, the airport is full of delightfulcustom details, as well as a few Easter eggs! Almost all staticaircraft, ground service equipment and landside vehicles have beencreated exclusively for this project; be sure to keep an eye out forsome of the more exotic types unique to LDRI. The subtle elevationchanges around the terminal and tower are modeled as 3D elements,which is something of a Rasha trademark. Detailed ground poly mapping,custom environment maps and PBR texturing can be seen across Rijeka,with a careful balance between detail and performance ensuringexcellent FPS in both P3Dv4 and v5.

Beyond the airport, the coverage area encompasses sections of KrkIsland, Rijeka and surrounds. Explore many of the beautiful beaches,the port at Bakar and Kraljevica, and the front ranges of the DinaricAlps. Dozens of custom landmarks have been carefully modeled, from thefamous Krk Bridge (the third-longest concrete arch in the world), tothe Urinj and Omišalj oil facilities, and many more. Hand-placedautogen and colour-balanced ground imagery ensure a seamless blendwith the surrounding terrain, perfectly capturing the rugged feel ofthis part of Croatia. Misha Cajic has also lent his expert hand to theproject; the extended coverage zone greatly improves the elevationmesh, coastline, roads and landclass to ensure complete compatibilitywith or without Global Vector and openLC Europe.

Rijeka International Airport combines the latest P3D tech alongsidea plethora of extra details and features to ensure this is yourperfect summer holiday destination!
