On testing this I don't think a single thing has changed other than the autogen being better and more bonkers too so it's fully usable as is. I may give a couple of places a brush up but the proper rework of elevations is going to have to wait.
This is a complete reworking of the Channel Islands in the English Channel.
Jersey, Guernsey, Sark, Alderney, Herm, Jethou and Brecqhou have all been dragged from the sea upwards and also the three main airports in the islands have been modified to work with the scenery files, plus a new airport created too.
The first flight I took in this sim was from Exeter to Guernsey. Something seemed strange when I approached and I realised all of these islands are totally flat in the sim. This is definitely not true in reality. Despite this EGJB Guernsey and EGJJ Jersey airports have major levelling problems in the sim too.
I've raised all of the islands from sea level to somewhere near their correct altitudes, creating hills, cliff and valleys. The available terrain tools are painfully crude and this will be obvious in many places - odd transitions, flat plateaus, strange ridges and sections where I've clearly said 'bleurgh, that'll do.'
This is down to having to juggle differing altitudes and terrain falloff whilst also stopping the sea from being pulled upwards, and one area breaking fatally the moment I repaired another area. Alderney in particular looks like someone has been using it for origami practice and then gave it a chew.
I tried to raise docks and rocks from zero metres above sea level but it's simply not possible without creating huge glitches. A few might have escaped. You'll know them if you see them. The major docks have been populated with watercraft.
EGJB Guernsey, EGJJ Jersey and EGJA Alderney airports have all been tweaked and are included in the folder. Extra detail has been added all over, their landscape problems have been cured and other broken stock elements such as parking spaces have been replaced. Alderney airport seems to be a little glitchy with unknown runway surfaces and a tree that appears and disappears on a runway but it works.
Brecqhou has had a 150m grass airstrip fitted for you - ZEGBQ - to irritate its evil owners by landing on their lawn.
I haven't terminated all of the daffiest buildings, there isn't much to replace them. And as ever there are trees everywhere that I should remove but for once they're extremely handy for covering up my brutality.
I'll return to this and try to do better in plenty of areas. Let me know if anything's broken. I THINK it all works together well enough.
This is six folders (sorry), one for each airport. One scenery file has Guernsey, Sark, Alderney, Herm, Brecqhou and Jethou in it. The other has Jersey. I didn't realise I was doing this in a separate file until it was too late and I couldn't be arsed to restart it.
I'm finding often issues don't show up for me but do seem to for other people and vice versa too. Let me know if you have any.
V 1.8 -
The latest update creates a second separate download which has deleted all my boats, apart from the Condor Liberation which nearly killed me getting it in there and a lifeboat, to make way for this - https://orbxdirect.com/product/seafront-channel-isl by Seafront Simulations which is a free download from Orbx that does a way, way better job with the boats than me. I'd say it's a must have.
The main file has the most stupid boats from my 'interpretation' removed and renames the modellibs.
I'll be adding more to the docks with both versions soon.
Let me know if I broke anything. The RSI from deleting all those boats might have scrambled my mind.
Pretty empty over here.

I guess thats nothing a third-party could make, since its some core-sim functionality.
I think its time for a section "working on". It would be so good to see if anyone is actually working on something particular, to avoid multiple people doing the same thing. There is this request section on flightsim.to which is awesome, however, I suggest a supplementary section, where people can actually upload their WIP.
why no one is making a replay mode
sorry for question but...how can download the wallpapers?
Would it be a lot of trouble putting the version number in the My Uploads page?
Bring back the 48hrs Recent Activity drop down please!
You'll probably find it now under Featured -> This Days Best
That was quick with the version number. Thanks, you're doing an awesome job with this site!
