I've documented all the process journal on my person blog (in Chinese)
Feel free to take a glance at 'em under the assistance of
2019.5.1（On site data collection):
Thanks to @Preozec Cher Skay for all of the following preview images
Let's hit the nail on the head by starting up with the most critical part of the scenery, the terminal.
Interior of the terminal, which y'all expecting to see
At the top of the terminal glasses have their PBR material for specularity
Zoom out, here comes the holistic view of the terminal;
The iconic starfish-liked terminal, and the surroundings.
Back to the outside, a glance of the parking lot, all filled with Chinese vehicles.
AOC for China Southern Airlines
Apron vehicles and the tarmac,
We only put several static aircraft just to ensure the usability and the variety of selectable ramp starts.
But you can still use default AI or WT3 as a stuffing to the airport
WT3 is now supported (since v1.4), you can get the update from your chosen distributor(s).
Back to the point,
at the lower-left corner of the image below, you can see that there's a taxiway bridge
However, this is not the real terrain, but just a physical model
Will see if we can introduce the modification of terrain in the following projects as a new tech.
Nevertheless, it looks neat while viewing in close-distance
And another one
（This one is a bit further from the terminal, so we used 2D textures for the girder, just for framerates!)
A close look at the apron
All jetways can be used once you install
SAM the plugin
The tower comes with good-looking AO texture
The interior of the tower, with night texture applied
Helipad on China Southern's AOC can be used
（Ramp Start: AOC Helipad）
Some other details
There're 1,200 different taxiway signs throughout the airport,
all manually modeled and textured, with dynamic lighting and night textures.
The verification work for signs took us more than a week.
But as a payback, we can now ensure 80% of them are correctly matched with the reality.
（Note that this area has been updated after the creation of this image）
And its night effect.
Here's the animated billboard that you usually seen in China (Flips every 10 sec)
And finally, a glance at the night effects we're so proud of
The light effects have dependency on your plugins, the default light.txt file is the most stable one.
An further overview, you can see that the whole airport and the surroundings are covered with lights
Wrap-up with the wholistic view of the entire airport.
Thanks again to @Preozec Cher Skay for the stunning previews!
The scenery can now be purchased on four distribution platforms, price depends on your exchange rate

Project Daxing is the first commercial project after the establishment of Star Atlas
It has an intergenerational significance to us personally, also for the Chinese dev community.
From Heihe to Daxing, we've experienced and accumulated a lot in these two years.
Thank you all for helping us along the way,
your encouragement is what motivates us throughout the process!
We are well aware that commercialization is the challenge, a "minefield" that is not widely been touched
But we will always treat each of our works in a rigorous and responsible manner, while exploring the way.
(In other words, subsequent updates are guaranteed!)
Also, thanks to @Bridge for giving us such a hard-won opportunity to work together!
We learned a lot from the whole process, and finally understood the meaning of "priorities."
All the chaos and confusion, effort and refinement of today will become clearer, throughout the way.
Thanks for your support, please stay tuned to our upcoming projects!
