• Review: Aerosoft - Antarctica X

    High Detail Airports

    As previously mentioned, there are seven high-detail airports spread throughout Antarctica X. Whilst the layout of each station varies, the stations all have some similarity to them: Several aircraft, several supply containers, fuel drums and some people walking around. Each base also contains appropriately liveried aircrafts, including C130s for McMurdo Station.

    Detailed as these airports might be, there really isn't much out here in Antarctica and thus, frame rates are nothing short of excellent when flying in these areas. I hit frame rates in the hundreds when flying around Antarctica, making for some really enjoyable experiences flying there.

    An important detail to note when flying in Antarctica is that the season setting really comes into play. Should you mistakenly select "winter", you may find yourself flying in darkness despite selecting the time to be "day".

    Compared with the barren ice strips in the default scenery, Antarctica X really does a lot in bringing the continent to...life, however little life there may actually be.

      I wonder if its compatible with ORBX scenery. Price is a bit steep.
