    Just a heads up, I had something in my Community folder that was clashing with ORBIX Payware CYLW Kelowana. And foolishly, I wasn't keeping track of my installed files and when I put things in. Went test out Kamloops, BC, CN so I took a flight from there over to Kelowana, and just as the vall came into sight, and before I could drop in to the valley, I got a CTD... emptied out the Community folder and did a raw re-install of Kelowana and started the task of re-installing everything I had 240 some files, starting from Kelowana each time. Today I put too new files in. Yours and Mountain Top Lake STOL field just north of Darrington Muni, in Washington State. I got the CTD... removed the Mountain Top first I it was the closest to Kelowana, and it still CTD'ed. Removed your file and no more issue. Shut computer down, got a fresh start, and I'd reinstalled your file four times and every time I try to start at or fly into Kelowana, I get a CTD. So I've made the perminant removal. Don't understand why it would have any effect on a scenery that is not even in the same region but it is. Will let Orix know as well. Thanks for listening! Robin

      Thanks for the heads up! I'll rebuild it with the latest SDK version soon and hopefully that resolves the issue.

      Note, Locher (https://flightsim.to/file/1811/locher-sarentino-airfield-loch) has (or had) similar impact on sceneries across the globe.

      Yes what PilotJohn posted applies.

      When the modellib.bgl file is present, not only does it represent a conflict but the sim is unable to properly scan the scenery files.

      If this does not result in a CTD the user experiences greatly increased load times at best.

      I don't have a `modellib.bgl` file in this project; there's no custom models. Are you having issues with the version I posted yesterday?

      Sorry!

      You are absolutely right!
      I may have opened a different scenery to check it and mistook that for yours.

      My apologies.

    Great work, I'm just a sim pilot with sandbox injuries so I'll never be able to get a PPL. Native out of KROC but I takeoff out of KITH and KPOU very often. Will any of the two be on your list in the future?

    Amazing job! I am a student pilot based in Schenectady and this looks spot on! Thank you so much for making amazing capital region sceneries!

      I'm glad you like it! I took an Intro Flight at KSCH but I ended up switching to KGFL for continued lessons. Hope to see you in the local skies! And KSCH is on my to-improve list 😊

    Not sure why, but for some reason it looks like this in my sim with the latest patch & Japan world update - https://i.imgur.com/QdGXs3K.png also, here is the sock position 43.049889, -73.860528

    Amazing! I can't thank you enough, I go to 5B2 a lot! I'm glad you're making a bunch of capital region airports! Keep up the great work!

      I'm glad you like it!! We live in a beautiful area for flying. Enjoy the scenery 😀

    Great work! Just one question I have, is the text on the taxiway a custom model?
    • JDiPierro
      6 month(s) ago
      Nope, I used "PaintedLine" objects in the SDK to trace the text, same way the parking spot lines are made. Thanks for the rating+comment!!

    KITH would be Lovely since the terminal is not in the main game
    • JDiPierro
      6 month(s) ago
      Thanks for the suggestion. All of the buildings I've been placing are generic ones included with the SDK. I think making a terminal would require a custom 3D model. I'm not quite at that point yet but I'm planning to learn about that soon, so I'll keep KITH in mind 😊
    • tjpotter
      6 month(s) ago
      Even a Generic building would be sufficient at this point! thanks for keeping it in mind though.

    Looks spot on! Local of Saratoga County here; Hope to see you work on other cool upstate airports nearby like KALB, KSCH, or Lake Placid Airport. Thanks for the awesome local touch!
    • JDiPierro

      Thanks!! I just uploaded a custom KGFL as well. I believe someone else on the forums is working on KALB, but KSCH is on my list 😊 Enjoy the scenery!
