**VERSION 0.5 IS NOW OUT!!**

NOTE: BEFORE DOWNLOADING, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THIS MOD IS STILL A WIP AND I WILL ADD/IMPROVE ALL THE MISSING DETAILS ASAP. THANKS!

Dear FlightSim community,

In collaboration with @Risuali, i'm excited to present to you "Doha City and Hamad Airport 2.0"! Thanks to this new 2.0 version, you will experience significant improvement of visuals and features compared to the first version of Risuali's Doha's MOD.

So here everything i worked on so far for now:

DOHA CITY SKYLINE:

- Added night illumination to the entire city skyline;

- Added several flashing beacons to several skyscrapers;

- Improved illumination quality for the main streets around the skyline area;

- Several boats and ships added around port and coast areas (more to come).

HAMAD AIRPORT:

- Runways, aprons, taxiways and gates completely rebuilted;

- Added the possibility to call a fuel truck for your aircraft;

- Taxiway signs rebuilted and replaced;

- Runways's approach lights rebuilted/improved;

- PAPI lights system added and tested;

- Lots of AI buildings replaced with best ones (more to come);

- Main terminal jetways positions completely replaced and improved;

- Improved quality of aprons/roads pavementation;

- Countless amount of scenery objects added everywhere: fences, static aircrafts, containers, cars, ground services and much more;

- Overall airport night illumination improvements.

 

ADDICTIONAL NOTES (IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ!)

- INSTALLATION:

Drag "DohaV2" folder into your "Community" folder.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS NOT A MOD INTENDED TO WORK ALONE; you will need also these 3 addictional MODS:

- Mr Mo lights pack: https://it.flightsim.to/file/2549/edhk-lights-pack

- Mikea.at AssetPack: https://it.flightsim.to/file/1923/mikea-at-assetpack

- SDR pack: https://it.flightsim.to/file/6072/sdr-scenery-pack-v1-0

- PLEASE NOTE THIS MOD IS NOT REQUIRING RISUALI ORIGINAL DOHA'S MOD TO BE INSTALLED TOGETHER WITH MINE. MY MOD CONTAINS ALREADY ALL THE INTERESTED BUILDINGS CREATED BY THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR!

 

KNOWN ISSUES

ISSUE 1: Whenever you're starting your flight from Doha or you're approaching to Doha by night as your final destination, you may not be able to see the skyscrapers lights! This is an issue not introduced by me or by the light asset's author; it's a problem introduced by Asobo and it is potentially relative to the LOD issue!

To see the lights, this is the only possible fix for now. Don't worry, it's very simple and it requires just mere seconds:

1. Pause your flight session;

2. Turn on the drone camera view at the max speed available (you can also use the developer camera if you prefer it);

3. Just fly above the city using the drone/developer camera and you'll see all the lights will start appearing everywhere!

4. With that done, just disable the drone/developer camera view and resume your flight!

ISSUE 2: You'll notice there is a lackness of details somewhere around the airport; this is because i'm still working on it! I have some free time only during the weekends so please stay tuned and keep following my work as i will deliver to you several updates to improve everything as soon as it will be possible. Once all the details will be completed, this is not a finished product! The more the SDK will evolve with more features, the more i'll keep optimizing and improving my works!

 

ISSUE 3: Emiri Terminal side is closed since update 0.5 because of the lackness of too much details! Once my work in that area will reach a good state, i will reopen the relative gates!
