This is a totally new Butuan Scenery Addon for Flight Simulator 2004. This features Multi-Level of Detail (MLOD) which makes a scenery framerate-friendly. At a distance, the objects are on its LOW POLYGON STATE. And while you get closer and closer, the objects become more and more complex, making you landing sequence unaffected by heavy framerate hit due to the High number of Polygons of the Library Objects.
Butuan Bancasi Airport Scenery (RPME) features photorealistic textures. This includes the Main Terminal Building, the Philippine Airlines Cargo warehouse, the Old Butuan Airport Cargo Warehouse, the Air Transportation Office Building, the Old Private Hangar, and the Control Tower. This scenery has full night lighting textures and has night lighting beams that illuminate the ramp from the main terminal building. Other library objects included are: Cebu Pacific baggage carts, Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines stairs, Airport and Ramp personnel, cars, trucks, buses, jeeps, cows and horses. But these objects do not interfere with the framerate so much because this is defined in the MLOD feature.This scenery has not been tested with FS2002 but is more likely to work without problem in that version.
Currently, Philippine Airlines serves this destination daily from Manila arriving at 12:15 p.m. and departing for Manila at 01:15 p.m. Cebu Pacific also serves this destination daily from Manila arriving at 10:25 a.m. and departing for Manila at 11:15 a.m. and thrice weekly (Mon-Wed-Sat) from Mactan, Cebu arriving at 11:50 a.m. and departing for Mactan at 12:30 p.m.
