ZBAD Release Thoughts?


Recommended Posts

Apparently ZBAD has been released on FT going for half the price of a normal newly priced airport. Which actually initially made me feel a little skeptical about the airport. It honestly wasn’t on my radar to purchase but now more curious if FT feels like it might not perform as well as other “Hotter” airports did for the decrease in price. From the video and pics it’s looks really nice but I think I might hold off on this one until I hear feed back from others. Normally, once an airport comes out, seems like there’s always a hype on feed; looks like this one I was the first post. Thoughts?

Are you sure this is intentional?

I don't buy airports anymore so I can't say much about it, except that testing it before RT is updated won't be very enlightening. You may have to be patient a bit longer before you get feedback from a real buyer.

I disagree, RT does not seem to be updated.  The BMT Micro webpages still download v27 which was released in December and does not include ZBAD.

I bought both and I am so disappointed. Cheap price and lame. RT not updated and RC for ZBAD does nothing. I waited for the new airport and what a let down.

I did download it just before I posted it, so here are the screens, (Downloaded on laptop, these screens are from my Desktop)

I have no idea about Real Color, haven't bought the airport, so no point in buying RC yet

The BMT Micro servers in Fremont, Atlanta, and Newark all give me v27.

Yes, I can confirm that. It is the same for me.

Using both the address bar and the web form, I get v27 from all 3 servers.

I don’t know if it’s intentional or not, it was just something noted and was surprised by.

I've also tried to download RT multiple ways, both following the link and manually from the webform, and from all three servers. In every case I end up with v27. I'm starting to wonder if there is a "newer" product ID that gives v28, and a different one that only downloads v27.

Nope, I used the same link I’ve used for several years.

I got back a reply from Feel there where I purchased it. They advised to uninstall RT and reinstall. Followed by installing real color for ZBAD. I noticed that RT V28 is now available. My airport is now working fine.

Are the screenshots from FeelThere's site accurate? I saw these same pictures when they were posted in the coming soon section and assumed these were from something that was a work in progress. The airport structures look real cartoony to me and the light blue concrete areas remind me of a blue print. And, of course, the area surrounding the airport is lacking. Maybe this explains the low price. Sure seems to be a questionable effort for, what appears to be in real life, a spectacular iconic terminal (i.e., "starfish").

Thank you for voicing what I was thinking! When I saw the video and the screenshots, so much seemed to be off balance somehow, but I couldn't pinpoint what it was.

Also, when I take this video as a reference, the terminal building seems out of proportion, especially regarding the height... (The terminal can be seen from the 21:00 mark.) It is barely higher than the vertical stabilizer of the Japan Airlines Dreamliner, but it seems twice as high in the screenshots.

Try clearing your internet browser's cache.

Thanks for the suggestion. It didn't work for me, not sure why, but it did give me the idea to copy the link and paste it into another browser, which did work for me.
