After mucho testing the only way this version is usable is to delete the Asobo one from your content manager.  

This is really strange as it was possible to wipe the necessary elements of the hand done airports from previous updates, but it's not possible here. I will continue to experiment.

This one retains the runway gradients, has a juicier terminal, filled in approaches, open hangars and alarming occupants. However the Asobo version does a fine job too and has better details here and there.  



Land's End is my second favouritest airport before St Marys on the Isles of Scilly and rather handily that's pretty much the only place it flies to. A geezer who works there told me that almost every single person passing through is overjoyed to be there and you can't really say that of most airports. 

As you may well have already guessed the in sim version was a skin-crawling insult with an autogen terminal even more far out than normal. This could no longer be tolerated. 

The apron has been erased and redone as have all the other ground textures. Ground markings have been improved. The car parks have been filled in. Detail has been amped up wherever possible and lighting has been applied. 

The original was plagued with taxi signs which have disappeared for me, though I did nothing to get rid of them. If you still get them please let me know along with anything else that sickens you. 

V 1.1 has had new runways fitted as there's no other way of adding landing lights of any sort, and there were none before. And the site has been fenced off, you can't go wrong with a nice fence.

V 1.2 Now has a verrry tasty replica of the terminal. Before I am hailed as a modelling genius I should point out I simply bloody bought it as 10 bucks vs 500 hours of screaming and wrestling seemed like one hell of a deal to me.

Why anyone would speculatively model this and put it up for sale is bleedin' mystifying - how many people in the world are building Land's End airport models right now? -  but, hey, I'll take it. 

I DID build a hangar or two all by myself. Or rather used a program to create it with a couple of clicks. But it was my finger doing the clicking so feel free to eulogise that. 

Other than that I've added paint to the grass runways to make them more visible. I really don't know how to figure out comprehensible taxi signs for them, and nor did Asobo of course. 

V 1.3 finally nails the terminal's glass. You can actually see through it now which I'm told is the point. 

V 1.4  This versions's most important thing is Skell300  https://flightsim.to/profile/skell300  doing a brilliant rendition of the service building next to the terminal. This fully ties the airport together.
 
Beyond that we now have all the ground markings, some signs, I certainly enjoy a sign, the immediate surroundings have been filled out, we have much improved static Twin Otters with specially commissioned liveries and plenty else besides. 

I will leave you to explore and discover the other additions for yourself, there are plenty of them. What type of maniac would download a mod without surprises? 

To take this much further would basically involve my paying for your taxi fare to the real place so you can run up and down the runways with your arms outstretched before you're forcefully removed. As of right now I'm too mean for that. If Asobo top this I will eat my flaperons. And yours. 

V 1.51 adds nothing other than a huge exclusion rectangle to wipe out the UK update version of here if you want to return to this iteration after checking out Asobo's version and don't want to mess about deleting it from your marketplace list. Edit - this failed. You have to delete the Asobo one. 

A cheesy placeholding version of the Longships lighthouse is included with the scenery file in here https://flightsim.to/file/3615/eghe-st-mary-s-airport-isles-of-scilly-uk-upgrade

Pretty empty over here.

    That were an interesting watch. Their version is better than I was expecting but I found the terminal's gloominess a tad weird. And since it's not exactly a large space more could've been to the surrounds. They have been able to do more with the ground markings and textures than me. I'll do more to mine mainly for my own amusement but the annoying thing is I don't think I can build on top of theirs. It has to be wiped completely.

    Great rendition of EGHC - as said below, much better than Asobo's (which I've uninstalled). Please keep up the fanstastic work!

    Hmmm...

    Will be keeping an eye out for any updates.

    Must be pretty disapointing for you given all the effort you have put in.

    It is what it is. This still works absolutely fine post update, but I doubt many will bother to sample it because of the need to delete. I tested with the US update airports which were wiped with no trouble at all. I don't get why it's not the same here. I may find some trick.

    Enjoying your work but can I please encourage you to update the manifest.json files for your projects? In particular "title", "creator" and "package_version". These fields are useful in MSFS Addon Linker to keep track on versions and sort by author etc.

    Am pretty sure I saw someone mentioning working on Redhill a while back. Maybe they don't have my working methods and actually do things over a stretch of time. I settle down on my commode and don't get up until it's complete. Middle Wallop looks fun. I expect someone else will get to it before I do.

    Thanks for your work, If you feel you need to stop this airport may I send your attention either Fairoaks or Staverton.

    Yup. The terminal is amazing. Nothing much to do with me, I just bought the thing, however it did take a very large amount of wrestling to get it in there. The various portraits are the personal heroes of whoever the hell is up there. The framed photo is Klaus Kinkski who was a genuine 100% proof maniac.

    Love your work, grew up flying around Cornwall from Bodmin and Truro. Always loved the days flying down to Land's End for a cuppa with my dad. This might be cut short if the sea fog started to roll in.... :D
