Hewanorra International (TLPL) & George F. L. Charles Airport (TLPC) Updated Scenery Pack Project

[UPDATED AS NEW INFO IS DISCOVERED]

 

 

DEPENDENCIES:

In order to see the static Airbus Helicopter in the Helicopter parking, download it from HypePerformanceGroup's page https://flightsim.to/file/8970/airbus-h135-helicopter-project and check out their discord at  https://discord.gg/dUNDGb2Z7c
Those guys are awesome at what they do!
 
DESCRIPTION:

While doing this project, a payware version was released by FSDG. I think they did both airports as well. At the time i'd already completed about 75% of both airports, so I kept going with it. Check it out at Aerosofts website.

The island of Saint Lucia is located in the Caribbean, South of Martinique and North of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and is part of the Winward islands. Hewanorra International Airport (TLPL), located near Vieux Fort Quarter, Saint Lucia, is the larger of Saint Lucia's two airports and is managed by the Saint Lucia Air and Seaports Authority (SLASPA). It is on the southern cape of the island, about 53.4 km (33.2 mi) from the capital city, Castries.

The airport can accommodate Boeing 747, Airbus A330, Airbus A340, Boeing 777, and other long-range intercontinental aircraft.

 

The country's smaller airport, George F. L. Charles Airport, (TLPC) is located in Castries and handles inter-Caribbean passenger flights, which are operated with turboprop and prop aircraft.

 

 

INSTALLATION:

Open and extract ''lexpro-St Lucia_updated_scenery_pack_project_v1.0'' (or the version name you choose to download) to your prefered location on your PC, then unZip and open the folder and copy both "George_F_L_Charles_Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project" and "Hewanorra_International_Airport_Updated_Scenery_Project" folders into where your Community folder is located, then start the sim and go to TLPL-Hewanorra International or TLPC-George F. L. Charles Airport. That's it!

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

 

DETAILED UPDATED FEATURES TO DEFAULT SCENERY (V1.0) - TLPL:
  • - Started from scratch and deleted everything except the default terminal building.

This is awesome! I'm from Saint Lucia and the FSDG buildings are way more accurate in design. But yours seems a lot more detailed, with the surrounding roads, the car park at TLPL and so on.

If the two sceneries could be used together it would be perfect!

Absolutely stunning! You have no idea how appreciated these efforts are. For so long the Caribbean has been neglected by the sims and the addon developers. People like you are making the dreams of so many of us of flying in this stunning region a reality. I cannot thank you enough!

PS Yours is definitely better than the payware!

I'm really impressed by your TLPL and TLPC.Your TLPL is closer, in my memory(We landed there for a stop from France enroute to TFFF with our DC10)to the real thing. I bought the FSDG renditions of both airports but I prefer yours! Well done

Cheers

    [Since Sim update 5, my Sim was literally broken and couldn't create any more scenery mods. Some scenery objects that were used also got changed without warning after the updates. Thankfully many Sim updates later, i'm now able to create again. Thanks for your patience :) ]

    - Replaced back all taxiway lights for both airports. They now light back up again at night.
    - TLPL: Added a lighthouse-like object and added a rotating spot light effect to simulate a light house on the Southern hill near airport like IRL.
    - TLPC: Added lights on the cruise ship docked near airport.
