This is a reworkathon of EGHQ Newquay Airport /RAF St Mawgan. 

Back in olden times before we donkey punched grannies who came within 10 metres of us I often used to take the night train up to Gatwick to fly back to Newquay for the pure living hell of it. The seated carriage for the deadbeats who didn't book a bed made for superb pick pocketing too. 

Nothing beats arriving in Newquay with grimy eyes and a greasy chuff knowing you have another 4-5 hours on buses and trains to go to wind up exactly where you started from 16 hours ago. Take it from me. 

I've seen worse in sim airports but this still needed going over big time. Not too far off every single building has been liquidated and replaced or installed where there wasn't one before. I can't help that not too far off every single replacement building is beige. Did Asobo lose a bet? 

On the industrial estate side there were roaming packs of tower blocks so they've all been wiped out and that whole section has been fiddled with too. It has been fenced to within an inch of its life but they couldn't cope with some gradients so they're a bit daffy in places. Other outlying areas have been populated such as the fire training bit. Lighting has been smeared liberally. 

Other than the runway every single ground texture has been binned and replaced with something closer to reality but I did start to lose the plot with that so some are a bit cheesy still. The autogen terminal has been replaced with something much tastier than the real thing. You deserve it.

Lots of diverse things happen here like plane scrappage and museums. Unfortunately I don't have many items to play with so you'll have to use your imagination with much of it.

This turned my brain to mush and my carers often found me babbling about finding the right shade of asphalt so there are bits that still need finishing and a few slip ups here and there. I'll return to it with fresh eyes as soon as I find a pair I like.

This has a new taxi system. Planes now point the right way on the main apron which was my prime irritant. I tried and failed to change the name back to Newquay. 

As so often seems the case none of the original parking spaces had anything other than fuel and pushback to offer. Spaces 20-23 on the main apron now have all of the services, but 20 and 21 are the ones for you if you're a big un, plus two on the south apron. The correct GA parking has been added on the top right. 

V 1.2

Sorts out some dodgy new autogen buildings from the update. A doomed BA 747 and 737 has been added along with a couple of helicopters cos why not? Next up I'll populate the air museum.

Pretty empty over here.

    Hi. Thank you very much. Great work!
    Would it be possible to include "Spitfire Corner" on final approach to RWY 30?

    Sounds like a plan. Just spotted it on the satellite photo. I'll add that to the list.

    Just wanted to:
    1. Thank you for your awwsome work
    2. Tell you ILS works completely fine for me in the latest version (using Navigraph obv. if that makes a difference)

    The only thing i got was awfull stutter when closing in to the airport. Usually i barely drop below 30fps on huge payware airports and here it got below 20. Was like 20 sec. during approach.

    No idea what's on with the ils. Maybe it wasn't there in the first place. Odd about the stutters. This should be no more demanding than anywhere else and there's nothing custom there . It does happen without a reason in other spots too.

    Thanks for this! I land at this airport a lot. Any chance you can fix the ILS frequencies please? They are missing.

    Right. This is the original taxi system. I assume ILS went missing when this was replaced. If that's not the case then let me know. - https://www.mediafire.com/file/xqa74tv19k89ort/airport-eghq-newquay-ils.zip/file

    ILS now populates in the latest version. For some reason though, I'm missing the custom marker on this and the EGTE mod in the world map.

    Ah. Good news. I've never added custom markers to the already existing airports I've done. Funnily enough someone told me it messes with ILS. It must be another change at their end.

    I just landed and realised I hadn't taken the mod folder out of the download folder when placing it in the community folder. Yeah it doesn't auto populate in the A320NX, but does with the default scenery. Do you know how to fix the ILS? I've seen some videos on YouTube of the SDK.

    I have never had any luck with ILS - ever, even less so the auto tuning thing. And like I said I haven't touched it. It's completely stock. So for now I don't. The only thing I can think of is replacing the runways but they're certainly in the same place. I could try binning the entire taxi system again so I'll do that in the near future and post a link.

    Super.
    Why not convert and use objects from the many free public object libraries made for X-plane? This would give you even more time to consentrate on the layout work, and the many airports still to be done. You only need to credit the creators (the best from UK) for using their objects.

    You certainly won't catch me scratch building models so yes I'm going to look into more of what's available out there. I have a draft of this with quite a few models gathered from all over the place already. I'm trying to figure out how many is too many. Maybe there is no such thing.

    You will probably be amazed to find thousands of objects in libraries like NAPS library, CDB-library, RE-library, ruscenery, The-handy-objects-library, ff-library, OpenSceneryX and many more. And there are all kind of objects being published at all times. They are all meant for creative peoples like you who can and like to populate all this terrible AI airports and airfields of (X-plane) MSFS and similar.

    This is absolutely outstanding, and I would like to thank you so much for doing this, and for all the other sceneries you have done. This is truly bringing the UK to life. I'm so happy for this scenery, as it is my home airport.

    I am rather tempted. There's lots of interesting things to it. I will likely put it in me pipeline.

    I lived on the RAF base as a teenager and can attest that this is really well done

    A real world endorsement. Doesn't get any better than that. I'd really like to have added details like plane scrapping and anything not beige. If I ever figure out modelling, or they add more items and colours to play with, I'll come back to this and do it greater justice.
