Czech GA Airfields Revival 2020 Experimental Version (October 2022)
This new experimental version adds the following:
- Many static objects are now depicted conditionally, e.g. no gliders during the winter months, in bad weather or during the night, less cars in the mornings and in the evenings, etc. The conditionas at play are seasons, months, time and weather.
- Inscriptions on aprons of some airfields (LKKO, LKJH, LKNY...) are now implemented as proper materials rather than as a texture floatating above the apron.
I hope you like it. If not, there is still the original February 2021 version available as a second download.
(CZ version of this readme is in the download)
The idea of this package is to convert the original Czech GA Airfields Revival 2017 to MSFS 2020. This final release contains 58 converted Czech GA airfields (refer to “Final state of play” below and to a Google map here).
The original Revival 2017 was released for FSX/P3D in November 2016 and contained 73 sceneries of GA airfields in the Czech Republic which were developed by 37 scenery designers from 2002 to 2016. The Revival 2017 package came into being bona fide under the approval of the original authors and / or in accord with the requirements in the original readmes.

Revival 2020 FAQ
1) What is meant by a “conversion”?
This conversion of the Revival package contains: original assets (objects), updated common library objects (ex. FlightPort and LHS libraries), original textures, original layout of the buildings on the airfields, added some default hangars where needed, parkings, runways, aprons and taxiways and default windsocks per current status.
2) The objects are rather simple, there is a recently built hangar missing, there is no PBR texturing, no 4k (8k, 16k...) textures... what the hell?
Yes, as stated above - these are not newly created sceneries. This is a conversion aiming to bridge the gap between default and new MSFS 2020 custom built sceneries. Mind, three quarters of the sceneries were created betwen 2006 and 2013 (so quite likely at the time when some of the current simmers were still wearing pampers :-)) and therefore they are witnesses of modeling and texturing techniques of the era as well as the field layout at the time.
In case you do not like it, feel free to use any other alternative and do not forget to ask your money back! :-)
3) Cool, but there is a shiny new scenery of my favourite Czech airport XXXX for MSFS 2020 (insert ICAO code of the airfield in question).
Great, where can I get it too? Oh and go to the Czech GA Revival 2020 file structure and just delete modelLib-XXXX.bgl, XXXX-scene.bgl.
4) Why do you publish this? It will only prevent others to work on new sceneries being up to the MSFS 2020 standard.
No. That would be stupid. The Revival 2020 package is intended to be used while waiting for these new state-of-the-art sceneries to come out (if ever). That’s why the package is easily modulable (check FAQ nr. 3). Besides, these sceneries still look good in MSFS 2020!
5) This is great! Where can I donate?
Glad you are enjoying the Revival 2020 and I appreciate your generosity. There is no donate button since that was the requirement and the deal with the authors of the original sceneries.
