Switzerland

A small but growing collection of small GA airfields in Switzerland to improve on the very limited fidelity of the fields included in MSFS2020. The fields are all in one package (with separate BGLs for each airfield) to reduce community folder clutter and dependency issues for common assets.

The primary focus is on function and accuracy, and we’re just starting to get into custom objects eye candy.

List of airfields
LSZV Sitterdorf
LSPH Winterthur
LSPG Kägiswil
LSZT Lommis
LSZK Speck
LSZI Fricktal-Schupfart
LSGC Les Eplatures
LSZQ Bressaucourt
LSZF Birrfeld (*) (improved Version)
LSGE Ecuvillens
LSZE Bad Ragaz
LSGY Yverdon-les-bains
LSGT Gruyere

It has been a long time since the last release, and a lot has happened in the meantime. For starters, this is no longer a one man community - a fact which is reflected in the new name "Swiss Airfield Crafters".

Yes, there is a new airfield (LSGT), but more excitingly there has been a lot of work going into a much improved version of LSZF Birrfeld. Ben and Frank have been hard at work creating the first custom buildings of this package. We think the result merits a star, even if it’s not yet complete. More buildings and objects will follow and the existing ones will be updated in future releases. So, why don't you check out the new Birrfeld.

If you feel like improving your home base to a higher level or you have even already started doing some work - why not consider joining us and experience the power (and fun) of team work. Even if you're not into development work: Having a local contact to provide information, measurements or photos would be valuable.

 

Installation: Just unpack the zip in the community folder.

If you have other (more detailed) scenery packages of some of the airfields there are two things you can do to make it work:

  • Make sure this folder is alphabetically before the other scenery in the community folder. If the other scenery is done properly it should override the respective airfield in this scenery.
  • If the above solution doesn't work, delete the respective bgl file out of the scenery folder of this package.

    Großartig dass du weitermachst, ich freue mich auf die nächsten Szenerien.
    Ist es möglich das Gras auf den Pisten (z.B. Gruyer) als gemäht anzuzeigen? So hoch wie das dort steht, hätte ich Angst zu landen 😉!

      Vielen Dank für das feedback. Die genaue Kontrolle des 3d-Grases ist leider immer noch eines der vielen Mysterien des FS.

    Bonjour,
    une nouvelle version de LSGY Yverdon-les-bains vient de sortir par une autre personne
    Comment modifier votre package pour enlever LSGY de votre pack et éviter les conflits ?
    ne serait-ce pas plus simple de séparer chaque aérodrome ce qui permet à chacun de pouvoir en supprimer l'un ou l'autre ?
    merci
    merci pour votre retour

      Thanks for your feedback. The idea of this package is to have a broad range of basic airfields with just one package to install.
      In the description I added a short paragraph at the bottom detailing what you can do in your situation.
      (as our airfields get less basic, this model might be reconsidered)

      Merci
      l'idée est d'utiliser les deux en attendant votre mise à jour
      merci pour votre réponse et votre travail

    These look fantastic! Thank you for your efforts!

    Have you considered breaking out the airfields into separate folders in a future update, rather than a single one, in case someone wants to install your airfields but might want to use an airfield or two from other authors that duplicates something in your list?

    Hi,
    great work what you've done!
    Is LSZG also on your list?

    Can you add
    Luzern-Beromünster (LSZO)
    ?

      Hi, it's already on the wishlist. I added you to the requesters.

    Hey. What is the difference between your LSPG (Kägiswil) included in your package and the standalone LSPG here:
    https://flightsim.to/file/933/lspg-kaegiswil

    Thanks
    • SACrafters
      1 month(s) ago
      Why don't you try both out? Without having checked for a while I'd say the standalone one has a focus on visuals/decoration, while this package prioritises function.
      That said, I think our Kägiswil could really do with some attention.

    Kannst Du auch LSPF Schaffhausen machen? Das wäre echt klasse.
    • SACrafters
      2 month(s) ago
      It's on the to do list. First it's gruyeres (nearly done) and some improvements on existing fields.
      Then probably Schaffhausen or Hausen.

      LSPF Schaffhausen. Danke

    could you make lszf more accurat?
    • SACrafters
      2 month(s) ago
      Hi Schoch. So far the focus of this package has been on operational/functional parts - and they should be pretty accurate. If there is anything here that's wrong, please be more specific.
      When it comes to eye candy (more detailed decorations and custom buildings) - that is extremely time consuming. BUT: The very good news is that the two guys from the comments just below and I have met and their efforts will be part of this package. LSZF is their main focus at the moment so we can look forward to the first custom buildings there possibly quite soon.

    Hey Guys I just start working on my homebase LSZF end of the last year. Lot of improvements are already done like the runway, apron with all new markings. Also the first version of Hangar 4, there is a spawn point inside so you can start from the Hanger 😊. I would appreciate if somebody would love to join making LSZF more realistic. The current release is located on github try it out https://github.com/frankbrunner/LSZFx

      Hi. Check you private messages...

      Hi, the Arofly FS2 Switzerland Addon provides really detailled view of LSZF. Can this be somekind of converted to MSFS20?
    • SACrafters
      2 month(s) ago
      No idea. But as the idea of this package is to be Creative Commons, that's not really a viable path for us anyway. The two modelers are working hard on the custom buildings - the first ones might be ready to release quite soon.

    Hey mrbump
    Super Arbeit.
    bin sehr gerne bereit zu helfen (soweit ich kann und Zeit habe)
    war bis jetzt selber an LSZF dran. (deines sieht jedoch x-fach besser aus)
    falls ich jedoch darf und kann würde ich gerne meine Homebase (LSZF Birrfeld) noch etwas "verbessern". (Kleinigkeiten)

    Des weiteren bin ich zur Zeit in Blender am Restaurant von LSZF dran.
    Würde mich über deine Antwort freuen und auf eine mögliche Zusammenarbeit.

    bin unter [email protected] erreichbar

    If you install LSZQ Bressaucourt from Flylogic (Mailsoft) and you have already installed the small swiss-airfields airports (https://flightsim.to/file/2798/swiss-airfields) you must delete LSZQ which is in this list. Otherwise the end of track 07 is distorted with a difference in level which causes great damage!
