Faroe Islands

EKVG - Vagar airport in the Faroe Islands. 

This isn't in the sim so I've created it. The airport buildings and outline of the runway are in the sim but Bing's imagery was too appalling to identify it. 

This is fine place to stop off for your transatlantic hopping. It's a great shame the present terrain is so poxy but perhaps a magic wand will be waved over the islands sometime. 

This had a few autogen buildings replaced, some embellished, some added. It should have a full set of ground markings but the custom parking numbers seem to be coming and go for me. 

V 1.6 is in theory finally friendly to Navigraph users, though your mileage may vary. Navigraph themselves tested this and it worked for them. They told me addons must be below the Navigraph package and also the Aerosoft Paderborn scenery file seems to mess with their settings. 

Something has changed about the underlying terrain here in the last few weeks so all of my lovely terraforming had to be binned as it was turned into jagged and unsalvageable junk.

This is therefore more boring than it was before but possibly less problematic too. The correct ish runway profile was readded so at least that's still there. I'm also not sure whether this screws with official altitudes or not. 

The folder name has reverted to a non numbered form so you'll have to track the old one down and exterminate it. 

This joint has given me so much ball ache since its creation I may well charter a real jet purely to land, attack the apron with my skinny fists and then turn around and go home again. 



Pretty empty over here.

    This is so useful as a stop over for GA flights to/from Iceland/UK.

    I noticed today when doing a LOC/DME approach to EKVG RW 12 in the C208 that although the LOC was working on 109.100 the DME appeared to be out of service ... unfortunate since the ceiling was 1000ft ... I ended up with a rough approximation using the GPS. Nevertheless is this something that could be easily tweaked?????

    Navigation stuff is REALLY not a strong point of mine. I will return to this shortly and do a bit more reading up but I expect there are certain things I'll never quite understand properly.

    If you have an older version of this, the new download has a new folder name so it's possible you have both in your community folder which might cause problems. There is no terraforming any more so there shouldn't be any bumps, unless they were put there by the data Asobo use.

    Hey! I still get a double runway problem and a super bump on the way to the apron, in fact the gates are like in a hill, is there something im doing wrong?

    superspud replied Author
    December 31, 2020
    All of that should be solved. Maybe you still have the old version folder in your community folder? It has a different name.

    This should now work with Navigraph which is what is causing your problem. There isn't any terraforming any more so there shouldn't be any bumps anywhere either. If it still doesn't work with Navigraph then I really don't know what to suggest other than turning it off, they tested this version and said it worked.

    It seems that changing the folder name for organization purposes is what caused the issue, so keeping it default fixed it.

    Thanks!

    Phew. I think this time I removed the folder number so it's possible you had the two versions. I should've made that clearer.

    As usual, LOVE your work on EKVG ! Didn't find any troubles about double rwy, or navigraph problems.
    Only one minor problem at the end of rwy 30, the last bit of rwy extension after the treshold dips in a very deep "pit". It is stil possible to do the 180° turn to align the rwy, therefore i call it a "minor" problem. Of course if it can be "adjusted", it would be marvelous !
    Please keep doing the good job on this airport, it's so worth it ! and a lot of us, like it ! I'll pm you the screensave i did of the "minor" problem

    Yes. I saw that. I really don't understand why that is still there. There was a terraforming polygon but I deleted it. I will see if it disappears on its own. If it doesn't I'll try again. Good to know it works for you.

    Loving your scenery, an amazing effort but unfortunately I’m getting a doubling up of the runway. 2 sets of markings and lights offset and when I go to ATC and chose the runway for departure there are 2 sets of the same runways in the menu.

    I’ve queried Navigraph and they’re asking if you’ve got the correct DELETE lines in your coding. There’s also a bit of a massive ‘bump’ just after you vacate the runway and taxi up towards the terminal.

    Well done though anyway, amazing detail and a beautiful airport and country

    Give this a try and let me know if it works - https://www.mediafire.com/file/fi1we0fuqvlbnyx/airport-ekvg-vagar-fix_ish.zip/file That's with the suggested list of deletes from Navigraph. The bump is down to the joys of terraforming and is as good as I can get it, but I think Navigraph makes that worse there too. Not sure.

    My God. It's a miracle. After all these months it has finally happened. Thanks for trying it and I'll update it for everyone else. Best to update officially when it's up as that one you have will still have GA medium parking spaces, they always revert to that if they're a bit small.

    Oops. spoke to soon. I Installed your fix and spawned at EKVG and it was fine but just flown in there from Orkney Islands and it was back to 2 runways. I'll re-install your file and clear the cache and try again and see if that sorts it. All very odd

    Oh good grief. It also appears this airport's terraforming has fallen apart big time too as something's changed in the underlying terrain and I can't solve it. I'm half tempted to shoot it in the head. It's been nothing but ball ache from the moment it was created. Mr Navigraph said addons must always be below the Navigraph package so that might be a factor for you.

    I feel your pain as it was working so something must be getting changed in the background by MSFS. I though I was going mad but I took a screenshot afgter the successful first fix and there is 100% only one runway ????

    I may create some sort of automated system that pays people to not use it, but they are allowed to look fondly at its map marker. Everyone wins. Mr Navigraph said it did work for him but perhaps he only flew it once. Not sure.

    I have installed the latest Vagar airport mod (Version1.5) but have a number of issues that I suspect may be to do with something at my end. I have installed some of your other mods and all of them function fine.

    1. Vagar does not appear on the MSFS World Map therefore I cannot start a flight from there.

    2. I can fly to Vagar from another airport or from a mid-air starting point but there is only a grass runway. Strangely all of the buildings are showing correctly as per your own screenshots.

    3. No nav data or ATC is available.

    As I said, I have no issues with any of your own mods or other airport mods. Only this one.

    Any suggestions?

    PS. Love your work.

    That is properly strange. I don't think I've ever heard of any of those problems before. The only thing I can think of is that the recent update has broken something. This is the same airport recompiled with all the latest stuff. Give it a try and let me know if it works - http://www.mediafire.com/file/065etks18xiqa5n/airport-ekvg-vagar-superspud.zip/file As for nav data, err there probably isn't any. I still don't it get properly.

    The airport looks really good. Was there fishing a few times and recognized everything. But there are still a few things that are not correct, I mean.

    Slopes: In my opinion, they are not correctly aligned.
    RWY 12/30 125 ° / 305 °
    If you follow the ILS, you are always flying into a mountain in the direction of RWY 12.

    ILS: They are mixed up and do not work correctly. The aircraft initially aligns itself with it, but then flies parallel to the runway at a certain distance.
    There is no glidesloap.

    Tower: On approach, it always assigns a runway with a tailwind. Have tried it several times with different wind directions.

    I speak German. The text was translated by Google.

    Many greetings, Koschi

    I have the same problem with the tower only choosing one end of the runway at other airports. So do other people. I haven't seen a solution yet. I need to learn a lot more about the advanced navigation things. Time is limited but I will try.

    Thanks for a great airport. But all my planes refuse to take off from this airport. The same happend to one norwegian airport. I got more than 500 airports installed in my community folder. But this one is one of two where it is impossibel to take off. It does not matter what ever I try to do. The planes are as glued to the runway. By shere luck I managed to lure a plane outside the perimeter of the runway. There everyting behaved normally, and I could take off as normal.

    Now that is a strange problem. I've never had it myself. Is the other airport not originally in the sim too? It's possible it relates to updates and being made on an older version. Try this and let me know if it works which has just been recompiled - http://www.mediafire.com/file/065etks18xiqa5n/airport-ekvg-vagar-superspud.zip/file

    It does not matter what I do. My Trustmasters can not make any of my planes to move. From inside the cocpite I can make shure the parking brake is of, but the trottel(s) will not move to stay. They immediately return by them selves before the planes start to run. The A1 can not be used, even if it may bee activated. If I use the default VAGAR airport everything is back to normal.

    There's a default Vagar? Wow. I can't see it. There is nothing special about how this airport has been made so I really can't think of anything. I will check some forums and if I find anything I'll let you know.

    I cannot see anything special with your airport. It is exelent. And you are right there was no other airport before you made this one.
    The airport that got the same problem is the norwegian airport ENSN (Geitryggen). The super version found at flightsim.to causes the same problem with my aircrafts as do your. If I return to the default ENSN the problems go away. And there are no similar problems with any of my more than 500 downloaded airports.

    November 23, 2020
    I will give that airport a try myself and see if I have that problem. I've certainly never had it at Vagar. It must be happening for someone else so I presume there's a reason and it can be solved.
