#Real-Life Australia Exclusive Drag and Drop

YMML Melbourne International Airport. WIP version 0.2

 

I hope you find this mod a slight improvement on the default Melbourne International which is quite poor to be nice in the game. This is definately a work in progress and at this stage does not require any library packs to  function.

I do not currently possess any blender skills and would be more than happy for someone to help model buildings to be included in the project with full credit given. Please feel free to PM me.

 

Version 0.2 (Please note airport now requires some common scenery libraries)

- working vehicle taxiways and fuel truck

- further ground textures

- scenery files such as ILS, VOR, radio towers and more

 

Version 0.1 includes

- 10m lidar DEM from Victoria land, water and environment planning of the airport and immediate surrounding area. (If there are any significant and innacurate bumps please do let me know) 

- the majority of true to life parking spots with correct names except for some of the smaller G57 - 60 ones due to lack of quality current satelite imaging

-Apron and taxiways with colours which attempt to match the satelite

- night apron lighting (If you have previously installed the YMML lighting mod please delete as this will show up as doubled lights). Thanks to the author angrybender as I have based there light positioning and then slightly refined the placements to better suit my ground markings

-Taxiway system should give correct directions in default ATC and AI does follow to gates

-Taxiway signs (I may have missplaced some and do appologise if a couple are incorrect in there layout) 

 

Information

Melbourne Airport (IATA: MEL, ICAO: YMML), colloquially known as Tullamarine Airport, is the primary airport serving the city of Melbourne, and the second busiest airport in Australia. It opened in 1970 to replace the nearby Essendon Airport. Melbourne Airport is the main international airport of the four airports serving the Melbourne metropolitan area, the other international airport being Avalon Airport.

The airport comprises four terminals: one international terminal, two domestic terminals and one budget domestic terminal. It is 23 kilometres (14 miles) northwest of the city centre, adjacent to the suburb of Tullamarine. The airport has its own suburb and postcode—Melbourne Airport, Victoria (postcode 3045).[4]

In 2016–17 around 25 million domestic passengers and 10 million international passengers used the airport.[5] The Melbourne–Sydney air route is the third most-travelled passenger air route in the world.[6] The airport features direct flights to 33 domestic destinations and to destinations in the Pacific, Europe, Asia, North America and South America. Melbourne Airport is the number one arrival/departure point for the airports of four of Australia's seven other capital cities.[a] Melbourne serves as a major hub for Qantas and Virgin Australia, while Jetstar utilises the airport as home base. Domestically, Melbourne serves as headquarters for Australian airExpress and Toll Priority and handles more domestic freight than any other airport in the nation.

Looking good so far. Can't wait to see where this goes!

Very familiar airport for me. This is very well done indeed. Thank you.

can you do abu dhabi int and great work

Picture #3 - you are going to get rid of that ridiculous block of flats behind the main terminal at some point, I hope - and replace it with a more "true to life" rendition.

Tulla is my local airport - can't quite see it from my back yard, but I could before they built houses there. I can still see it quite clearly from my local railway station even today.

It's my local airport, and I really am looking forward to your final rendition, complete with all the warehouses etc that have been built around the Northern end.

I once did a makeover for both Essendon AND Tullamarine, but that was back in the day of FSX, and things were much simpler/more difficult (adding buildings was simple - making the whole thing realistic was difficult!)

how did u get all of the liveries on the traffic?

Definitely looking forward to trying your YMML improvement when you make it available as a ZIP. Thanks for your work!

Great job well done

Please include a zip file otherwise I cant download it.! Thanks

Looking very good. Thank you so much!

Been waiting for my home airport in MSFS for so long because it's completely butchered by default. Thank you so much for getting Melbourne flyable mate, will definitely keep my eye on this one!
