If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Airport quality rating

The airports on the map can be of quite different quality, and it can be sometimes disappointing when arriving at a large airport with just one hangar placed there. Therefore i thought about a quality rating filter. This rating should be reasonably objective, so i thought of some levels with some objective criteria to go with them.

Rating 5: Realistic
- The airport makes a complete impression (no major terminals missing)
- The major buildings are custom made to reflect the real buildings
- Example: EHAM

Rating 4: Immersive
- The airport makes a complete impression
- Most of the buildings are shared objects though, not made specific for this airport
- Example: SMJP

Rating 3: Incomplete
- The airport makes an incomplete impression
- There are quite a few good (realistic) buildings, yet e.g. major terminals are still missing
- Example: EGLL

Rating 2: Bare
- The airport makes an empty impression
- There are just one or two shared objects placed there.
- Example: EGQS

Rating 1: Defect
- The airport has serious defects, like grass over the runway or terminals not reachable by aprons.
- It does not matter weather the buildings are realistic, the defect is more important
- Example: LSZB (grass over the runway) or LFOK (no apron)

Rating 0: Not rated
- Still needs rating

How to rate

Everybody can send in their ratings to this thread. There are some 900 airports to rate, so any help is welcome, and i will initially just take the ratings over as is. When there is disagreement about an airport i will take a look myself and try to solve it with the ones disagreeing.

When rating, just remember the following:

- This is not a popularity voting system. The ratings should be as objective as possible along the lines of the criteria i mentioned above. So do not go rating an airport on level 5 just because you like it IRL, when there are only few buildings planted there in terrasync, making a level 2 more correct. You are doing this rating for others, so they are not disappointed after a long flight, when they chose a well rated airport to land.

- This map is about terrasync airports. So watch the airports in plain terrasync when rating. Not custom scenery or terragit.

- Airport size matters! A GA airfield can be "realistic" or "immersive" with just one building, if that is the only building on the real airfield too. But a large airport with just one building is most likely category "bare".

- Use any tool you like for insight in how the buildings look in reality. I use google satellite maps. If you zoom in enough you sometimes get aerial photography at a 45 degree tilt. Else trying to see the buildings from street view is sometimes possible.

- I rated some airports from the top of my head, to have a few in every level. When you think i'm wrong, i'll find out in this thread.

Filter on the map

In the legend i have added a selection box for the quality levels. The toggle box in front of it means:
- on: Show current and better levels
- off: Show current level only

The map starts up with level 0 (not rated) and everything better. That is effectively every airport on the map.

Kind regards, Vincent

Added KXTA 4, and checked out the Dutch airports myself in the dr400.
