#Handcrafted United Kingdom Drag and Drop

Lets make Gatwick Great Again!
Extract Folder as one into your community folder as gatwick
This version uses  Default Airport runways/taxiways and jetways... But all the terminals/piers/stand plates are handcrafted. Every stand number is correct on the airport but incorrect in the world map at the moment. This may change with world update uk. Depends on Asobo.
This is the full version with added animations and trains
A Lighter version is available here with all the upgrades but without the trains and monorail animations

Another Version i am developing which is a full Edit of runways/aprons/texiways/jetway positions and correct stand numbers in world map is available here

Installing updated versions for EGKK and Best way to clear your cache and get rid of old data indexes
1) Delete the older version 'gatwick' from community folder
2)Start fs2020 and spawn to default Gatwick
3)Close Fs2020 and install New version into community folder as 'gatwick'
4)Open fs2020
This method will solve the problem of scenery not appearing, or overlapping models

 

V8.0.1
Ai building removed from taxiway Juliet
Packaged using latest SDK V0.10.0

V8
EGKK Fire Training Aircraft.
BA Hanger.
Pier 1 4K Bricks update.
South Terminal adjustments and Textures.
Airbridge Less dark textures and glass.
Inside Gate number corrected Pier 6.

V7.9.5 
Virgin Hanger- fits 747-400. Asobo 747-8 will not fit fully, 5 metres longer.
A380 stand 558 added- jetways inop ATM.
ATC tower lowered slightly.
Added detail to airbridge ends.
Added detail to 500's jetty stairwell pods on 500's..
Pls Note.. some safedocks need adjustment on 552/553/557/558 due to rework.

V7.9.4
Centre Line T bar end terminations on every pier stand.Gate 101 shifted and new centreline in place.Poliigon Concrete Blocks Generator 4K Textures for Pier 2 and airbridge supports. (more additions later)More work on North Terminal added details and re levelling building heights using Google Earths NEW telemetry data as a visual reference aidV7.9.3
All Jetty Stands now have safedocks and stop markers for A320/747/787
Some tweaking still needed for 500's
V7.9.2
Test Introduction of  Stop Markings on13,15,17,19,21,23Stand 23 is calibrated with its own safe dock.13-21 are not yet calibrated and checked but with a bit of luck they will match with the safedock stop.This is particularly useful for the Dreamliner where visibility of the safedock  disappears near stop point due to H.U.D and low windows. In VR you can duck to see the safedock but in normal 2D you can now finish the taxi on stand in external view and capture the stop marker. This problem is only on stands 13M-23 due to reduced stand size
81 Safedocks now added and calibrated
1-5 Airbus or smaller
31M,32M,33M,34M,35M,36M,37,38 747 or smaller
31L/R, 32L/R, 33L/R,34L/R,35L/R,36L/R Airbus A320 or smaller
KA taxiway sign moved to correct location
Stand 109 now has its stand plate back
Added taxiway lights to KQ intersection
Airbus or smaller stands 140-145
Pier 6
Airbus or smaller 104,105,106,107,109,112,113,101
747 or smaller 102
Pier 2
Airbus or smaller 10,11,12,13L/R,14,16,18,20,22,24,28
747 or smaller 13M,15,17,19,21,23,27
Dreamliners may be a bit tail out on 13M,15,17,19,21,23. But 747 are as snug as a bug in a rug
stand 25,27 747 ASABIR (as snug as a bug in a rug)
Pier 5 
Airbus or smaller 48L,49 L/R,, 50 L/R, 51 L/R,52 L/R, 54 L/R
747 or smaller 49M,50,51M,52M,53,54M

More waves of stands in V7.9.. 
Any pilots with parking issues are very gratefully recieved, off centre line issues or tweaks i need to make to the stop points do let me know..

HOW TO USE AGNIS STAND GUIDENCE
Just left red light visible - Too far to left
Just right red light visible - Too far to right
Both red lights visible/flickering. Green and orange bars visible= dead centre
AS the aircraft gets closer to stop point the size of the orange/green bars reduces and the red bar becomes visible.
When the green/orange bars disappear, means STOP
I have no idea how i manged to make this work.. i starting to wonder if i am a genious (LOL)

    This amazing. I think to take it to the next level would be to include green and orange runway exit lights. It would be the first airport in FS2020 to include them. Even though 99% of major airports in the world have them in real life.

    Really great work! Just a question, why I cannot see the airport marked as an addon airport in Littlenavmap? In Flight simulator too, it doesnt appear as an addon...
    Thanks

    There are 4 ways to create an airport
    1)It does not exist as a default.. all you can see is the outline on the ground
    or maybe just create an imaginary airport
    2)It does exist as a default airport but you can change the buildings and add models (This is the V8 Ultra models and buildings version EGKK). Does not show on map as edited airport (star)
    3)It does exist as a default airport but you overlay / create a new airport with the same ICAO in this case EGKK. Then you exclude most of the assets like runways//ILS/Aprons/Jetways etc etc. You create a polygon and it deletes everything and flatten the ground. You end up with a completely removed airport apart from Nav data like stars and approaches and ATC Frequencies with just the underlying Bing Map with all the aircraft visible from the day/s aerial photos/satellite was taken. It does show up as an edited airport (Star) This is the Full edited version https://flightsim.to/file/5784/gatwick-egkk-ultra-star-edition-phase-1-0
    4) Do the same as 3 but excluding everything, and recreate waypoints, stars, approaches etc. You need to be a brain surgeon to do this

    yes, put the version you dont want into com folder. Start fs2020 and spawn to Gatwick.
    Close fs2020
    Delete the com folder gatwick, and install the version you want, and start fs2020

    Always use automatic managed Cache, 8GB

    This is my first comment/feedback on this scenery, but I'm one of your fans following this project of yours since that evening at the end of October last year - when we all realized how crappy the EGKK looks, then having you appear with the intent of making just a few smaller improvements to the piers an shit...well GREAT JOB MAN !!

    I'm a computer scientist, but also an old CGI professional (3D Studio MAX). It's just a hobby of mine nowadays, but I work on a full 3D reconstruction of one town and its airport not yet covered by the photogrammetry data and who knows when it'll be.
    Thus, having the personal experience of just how much work is required to make a true to life and correctly modelled scenery or even substantially improve the existing one, I can say that your EGKK just screams dedication and passion !

    I'd now like to give a small recommendation - regarding the version that you're working on in parallel with this one.
    Folks are kinda confused as to what's the difference, should they get the other one or if they maybe need to have both, etc. I've also kinda' been perplexed for a moment until you wrote this to one of your fans here:
    --------------------------------------------
    mkvy replied:
    February 16, 2021
    [you need to install]Just one... V8 is scenery enhancement, V4 is complete reconstruction
    --------------------------------------------
    that ^^
    You should just put that in larger bold text within the description section of both sceneries - it's an absolutely perfect yet concise explanation.
    Of course, you can just add that the fully handcrafted one currently has certain limitations here and there - then just encourage users to go on further reading the description and changelogs of both.

    ...but what a project...really great stuff !

    That'd be all from me - keep up the great work - stay safe, wash your hands, I love 'ya !

    Thanks for your comments and encouragement
    Its really hard to explain simply if a user has never created an airport before and how the SDK works.
    There are 4 ways to approach an airport
    1)It does not exist as a default.. all you can see is the outline on the ground
    or maybe just create an imaginary airport
    2)It does exist as a default airport but you can change the buildings and add models (This is the V8 Ultra EGKK).
    3)It does exist as a default airport but you overlay / create a new airport with the same ICAO in this case EGKK. Then you exclude all of the assets like runways/ATC/ILS/Aprons/Jetways etc etc. You create a polygon and it deletes everything and flatten the ground. You end up with a completely removed airport with just the underlying Bing Map with all the aircraft visible from the day/s aerial photos/satellite was taken
    4) Do you the same as 3, excluding most assets with just the fundamental Navigation and ATC, approaches and arrival stars intact. These are a complete nightmare to re create. You end up with a clean sheet with all the Bing Map exposed.

    V8 Ultra is number 2 of above
    V5 Ultra full edit is 4 from above
