Switzerland

About this file

A small but growing collection of small GA airfields in switzerland to improve on the very limited fidelity of the fields included in FS2020. The fields are all in one package (with separate BGLs for each airfield) to reduce community folder clutter and dependency issues for common assets.

At this stage the focus is on function and accuracy, and not (yet) on custom objects eye candy.

List of airfields
LSZV Sitterdorf
LSPH Winterthur
LSPG Kägiswil
LSZT Lommis
LSZK Speck
LSZI Fricktal-Schupfart
LSGC Les Eplatures (now with ILS/DME)
LSZQ Bressaucourt
LSZF Birrfeld

next release: LSGE Ecuvillens (+ reworked Sitterdorf to better standards)

Installation: Just unpack the zip in the community folder.

PS: This is intended to be a community project - a corresponding github repository has been set up from the start. Contact me if you want to help/contribute. It's consuming way too much of my time...

    Excellent job, really great, thank you. Any chance to see LSGT (Gruyères) and LSGE (Ecuvillens) ? That would be highly appreciated as these two airfields are really great to fly to..THANKS again

    Thank you very much for your great achievement. For information I also had LSGC Les Eplatures which had disappeared all normal now after deleting the file scenery indexes as you indicated

    Thanks for the info. Yes I think there is a lot of problem solving potential in that folder. I once removed the whole thing minus a couple of necessary cfg-files to solve a startup/CTD problem.

    LSGC Les Eplatures don't work since the last FS update. can you confirm this?

    Works here. Is it no longer showing in the world map? I had that once with a few add-ons. I think I solved it then by deleting the scenery indexes (C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator). At your own risk of course...

    How did you get Les Eplatures to work ? in my c:\...Microsoft Flight Simulator is nothing that appears to be relevant. My MSF is installed on my F: drive. I just updated from 0.6 to 0.9 and the latest MFS version. I don't see LSGC on the map and not when running the sim. addendum : I installed 0.10 today and now LSGC works. I may actually have made a mistake when installing 0.9. Copy pasted wrong folder.

    Thank you for your effort. Would like to see "Birrfeld" LSZF. Greetings from Zürich.

    Fantastic Idea from you in putting in together a Pack. I'm actually working on LSPV Wangen-Lachen but have Problems Modelling the Airport buildings, at the moment i'm Trying to import from google Maps into Blender oder Google Sketch up.

    Cool. Unfortunately I can't help you with importing photogrammetry data as I know nothing about it. But if you're thinking about joining our efforts please consider not using Google photogrammetry. This collection is started under a creative commons license that is probably not compatible with G's terms and conditions. Also: is the Resolution (geometry and textures) good enough for airport buildings? When you get that close up to photogrammetry buildings they often don't look very good.

    Yeah it actually is too bad, i'm trying to build it in Sketchup or in Blender but yeah if it ever gets finished i wil get back to you :D but how did you do the Buildings? In Blender?

    So far I have just used buildings that were included in FS2020. I only modeled a handful of markers in 3ds max. At the first stage I thought it more important to get more airfields operational rather than having them look perfect. What is done is accurate though.

    Hello, are there instructions on how to do this with photogrammetry, I would also like to help, e.g. LSMF

    If by photogrammetry you mean converting google earth data, everything said above applies. If you mean taking your own photographs and using software to generate geometry and texture then I'd say go for it. In this case though the result would probably be separate buildings. So a good first step might be to use the standard SDK means to build a solid base for the buildings to eventually be added - and to gain knowledge. This would be very much in the spirit of this project and you're more than welcome to add to it.

    there are some other messes... I'd like to help but I do not know how... LSPO Olten, LSZU Buttwil, LSPA Amlikon come to mind... if you have some tips on how to model these airports I would help gladly.

    Bressaucourt was a particular mess because the AI tried to generate an airport off the orthophotos of a construction site. The AI also doesn't seem to be doing any terraforming which is essential in LSZQ and LSGC. About editing: There is a bit of a learning curve (but doable - I only started about 5 weeks ago) and it's time consuming, especially at the beginning. PM me if you still think you want to help and I can give you a few pointers. By the way: the project repository is here: https://github.com/SwissAirfields/SwissAirfieldsFS2020

    Would Bressaucourt be possible to implement?

    Bressaucourt is a mess, so it should be done. I'll see. Currently I'm working on les eplatures.

    Had my PPL check ride a few days ago in Les Eplatures, went well! So I'm happy to see Les Eplatures being improved as well :) Thanks a lot for your work on the swiss fields!

    You're right, it's become a bit of an obsession and I should really cut back. But in the meantime have a look at Bressaucourt...

    November 15, 2020
    I'm not kidding I was in Bressaucourt yesterday and wanted to ask if you could add it as well but didn't want to be rude and ask for even more of your time. Keep it up, you rock!

    I envy you - it was perfect weather this weekend. I haven't been flying for many years but hope to restart in 2022 (kids are getting old enough). Anyway, as you're familiar with LSZQ and LSGC I'd be glad to hear any feedback or suggestions.

    Great Work, thank you ! Your kaegiswil is very good, but you should contact the autor of the other kaegiswil, because he has done nice grass shelter by his own, using blender ;-). Looking forwards for other airfields

    Does your package interfere with this one: https://flightsim.to/file/933/lspg-kaegiswil ?

  • image
    mrbump replied
    November 04, 2020
    Unfortunately yes. I only became aware of the other Kägiswil just now. I think he hasn't set the deletion flags of the airport (wasn't a problem so far because there was nothing underneath). So even if it's higher priority the two airports get combined. 1. You could delete the respective BGLs out of this package (I think this works...) 2. You could get chrispriv to check the deletion flags.

    Lovely! :) How about Buttwil (LSZU)? :))
