Marshall Islands Scenery

There are nearly 2 dozen airports in real-world (RW) Marshall Islands built over the course of WWII and Cold War occupations, however only 10 are presently active. Although most people will not see the Marshall Islands in real life, at least we can bring part of these exotic islands to you via FSX in the form of 8 airports. The airports, which represents the flare and ruggedness of the RW Marshall Islands, includes:

  • Marshall Islands International (AKA Amata Kabua International) - PKMJ
  • Rongelap - PKRP
  • Utirik - 03N
  • Mejit - Q30
  • Kaben - PKBN
  • Maloelap - 3N1
  • Ine - N20
  • Tinak - N18

Marshall Islands International is among the most fascinating airports in the world with its distinct near 8,000ft runway straddling a mere 500ft-wide lime-coral/sand divide between north and south coasts Majuro Atolls. Flight time from New York to Majuro is 14 hours, from Tokyo is 11, from Sydney is 6, from Guam is 8, and from Honolulu 5 hours. Wherever departure airport you are flying from ferrying passengers, freight, or repositioning aircraft, you are bound to arrive with a warm welcoming trademark thunderstorms and incessant crosswinds typical of that part of the Micronesian region. The runway width is so thin in aviation standards that it makes the approach more difficult and challenging for the heavy iron types.

Other small airports, such as Ine and Tinak also has their challenges since they are situated on thin slivers of coral byways in the middle of the vast Pacific ocean. Although they are scary enough from the approach perspective, taking off isn't easy either with constant crosswinds and sporadic microburst or wind divergence.

System-specific Requirements
The Marshall Islands product was developed on a medium system for medium to high-end computers, and was tested on WinXP, Vista and Win7 32/64 bit platforms with medium to high-end graphic cards. Specific requirements include:

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X (SP1, SP2/Acceleration)
  • Pentium IV 2.6 GHz (2GHz Duo2Core Intel and above or equivalent advised)
  • 1 GB RAM and above recommened
  • 256 Mb DirectX 9 graphics card (512 Mb or higher recommended)
  • Word for Windows or Adobe Acrobat® Reader 6 minimal to read and print the manual.
  • 500mb of hard disk space

Recommended FSX Settings
Frame rates from scenery complexity and autogen settings were averaged at 30fps and above. This includes moving sliders 100% to the right. Lower settings yielded much higher frames, but our recommendation is Dense to Extreme Dense for exceptional rates. Since the scenery is 15/30cm/pixel photoreal, it is highly recommended that Mesh Resolution be set at 1 meter within FSX Display Settings (slider 100% to the right). Texture Resolution should also be set at 30cm and above (or slider 100% to the right).

Recommended AI Traffic settings:
There are AI boat traffic within vicinity of all /islands/atolls. To maintain an exceptional level of FPS, it is recommended that leisure boats be set at 30% or less.

AI Road traffic is only found at Majuro and Rongelap. Recommended setting is 9% or lower.

NOTES 
Product Disclosure and Disclaimer: Due to the vast size of land and maritime area constituting Marshall Islands, we were restricted to creating 8 airports only. In fact, in 3 or 4 coverage areas, we had to slice off parts of atolls to just airport locale simply to avoid creating unnecessary huge file size that can overwhelm systems with small hard drives.
