May 29 - It's Friday. What does that mean on The Sims forums? Time to highlight some awesim discussions!

Where is the Airport?

«1

I often see people saying one of the backdrops has an Airport where planes actually fly in, dock and fly off again.

I have never seen it though. Does anyone know where it is? I like the detailing like the trams, trains, steamboat etc. so this would be awesome too see.

    Maybe it's a hint at a future expansion pack similar to World Adventures?

    Is that a thing in the game?

    Yes, there is a "pseudo" airport-type thing in the Parched Prospect neighborhood in Oasis Springs (in the distance behind Springscape house). I have seen planes land there and take off again. There is a short runway on which they land and from which they take off. You need to use tab key and "W" to go/zoom in over there. It's pretty neat to watch, for what its worth.

    In Oasis Springs I often saw planes flying past by my sims' home and behind it. Perhaps a hint at a vacation EP? I think an airport lot would be cool, having your sims fly in a plane would be quite realistic - but eh, who knows?

    It's a very active airport. I've seen at least 4 planes in the sky at one time. I'm glad I took these--never know when they might come in use! Enjoy! :)

    Here are some pictures I took. The large building in the first shot is the "airport" buiding/tower I guess. The rest are of a plane landing and taking off again. The plane looks small while on the runway, but it's just for effect, when looking at it in the distance. The large jets are pretty cool looking.

    If you look close, you can see the little green wing lights that flash on the tips of the wings. Pretty neat.

    Thank you so much! I want to live there now just to see the planes going past and fly around in the sky.

    I love little details like this!
