DOUGLAS-CHARLES & CANEFIELD AIRPORTS UPDATED SCENERY PROJECT 

[WORK IN PROGRESS]

DESCRIPTION:

This is a custom scenery update to the airports on the island of Dominica. It is located South of Guadeloupe, North-West of Martinique. Formerly known as Melville Hall International (TDPD), Douglas-Charles located on the East side of the island, is also well known as the airport with a challenging landing going into runway 09 due to the high mountainous terrain approach. At night, Runway 27 is Highly recommended and NOT Runway 09 which is why it's also known as one of the most interesting yet scenic and challlenging airports to land on. Canefield Airport (TDCF) is no exception to this as the small airport is on the West side of the island and due to the placement of the runway, pilots will almost always experience cross wind landings beacause of the near hilly terrain. Only skilled pilots are allowed to land on Runway 19. Runway 01 is either prohibited or rarely used for landing. For me, these two were fun airports to re-create in the sim :) 

 

INSTALLATION:

Open and extract ''lexpro-dominica-updated-scenery-project-v1.0.zip'' (or the version name you choose to download) to your prefered location on your PC, then unZip and open the folder and copy both "Canefield Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project" and "Douglas-Charles Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project" folders into where your Community folder is located, then start the sim and go to TDPD Melville Hall International (still has the old name) or Canefield International. That's it!

Each time I upload an updated version here, just replace the same "Douglas-Charles Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project"  folder or "Canefield Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project" folder in your Community folder to update the scenery. Make back ups to the old folders if necessary. 

(Please note, when choosing a parking space for departure, don't choose any single digit parking spaces numbered by themselves. Those are for the service vehicles to drive to if you have them enabled in your settings. You will be spawned in locations not meant for Airplanes. This is also a work in progress as I want to find a way to stop these vehicles from annoyingly park in your parking space!)

DETAILED UPDATED FEATURES TO DEFAULT SCENERY (V1.0) - TDPD:
  • - Started from scratch and deleted everything except the default terminal building.
  • - Stratigically placed very specific scenery objects from the sim library around the default building to try match the design structure IRL. [work in progress]
  • - Made some corrections to the surrounding terrain of the Airport  
  • -  Added runway/lights, PAPI lights (by Runway 27 only like IRL), aprons, taxi lights, taxi ways, ''wear n' tear'' textures and ground markings. 
  • - Corrected location of Windsocks
  • - Added a light above the Windsocks
  • - Added the control tower with a beacon light [Had to use another default tower that had a built-in beacon attached and inserted it inside this one as the one I added from the sim was not showing for some reason?]
  • - Added Airport lights around the airport to give it some life at night.
  • -  Added extra lighting under the Airport terminal roofing that was added. [work in progress]
  • - Added static aircraft\service vehicles with some animated Marshalls\Workers surrounding them.
  • - Randomly placed Marshalls/Workers and other animated people around the Airport in general.
  • - Added barbwire fencing around entire Airport
  • - Added the concrete wall border at the end of Runway 27 thats supposed to prevent the sea waves from coming over and flooding the road and the airport IRL
  • - Added many more trees/plants/grass, auto-gen trees in general areas close to and surrounding the Airport. [Tried to replicate Dominica's large palm/coconut trees :) 
  • - Added solar panel street lights to light up the roads close by and along the Southern, Eastern and Northern side of the runway as well as a few in front the terminal.
  • - Added the corrrect approach lights behind runway 27 for night landings
  • Added an animated flag where actual Dominican flag is supposed to be [May not be too accurate]
  • - Added the parking lot with vehicles to the West of the terminal building as well as other scattered scenery objects around the airport in general.

Amazing! The surrounding makes this airport look gratis! I am gratis fan of your work. Keep it up! Can you make Barbados in the future?
Nice scenery.. (Nice work). But would recommend that you package these airports as separate downloads: (Much easier to manage for both the designer and the end user)..
IE:
Dominica TDCF Canefield Airport v1.1 and a separate download IE:
Dominica TDPD Douglas-Charles Airport v1.1

great work as usual bro. I can't select runway 27 though
Great scenery, big fan of your work.
Outstanding scenery - thanks for sharing it for free !
Yeahh great work very nice THK 5 stars
Fantastic scenery! Great work! I have a problem with the road textures, they show up as a white and gray checkered surface. Nothing like in your screenshots. What am I missing?
Awesome! The West indies is almost complete concerning detail airports on most islands with your scenery and others offered. All that's left is Bermuda, Turks, TUPJ, Montego Bay, Kingston, Cayman MWCR, TBPB, and Punta Cana. Some of those need custom terminals because of their unique design. TBPB, TFFR, MWCR, and MDPC come to mind.
OOOOOH!!! THATS WHY EVERY TIME I SEE YOU PARKED UP AT TDPD.. LOL NOW I GET IT LOL. GREAT SCENERY HERE MAN. WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN DOING PORT OF SPAIN? HEARS MY DISCORD LINK, GOT SOME OTHER CARIBBEAN SIMMERS THERE https://discord.gg/63THsdxCuZ
