About this file

(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. The current release contains 22 converted Czech GA airfields (refer to “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), original 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 and XXXX-POLY.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.

6) What’s next?
The plan is simple:
(i) Convert the content of the original Revival 2017 package with the exception of those airfields that are already done for MSFS 2020 (or will be done during this conversion) by some of the talented modellers here.
(ii) Make an update every so often, probably once a week or two weeks.
(iii) As the time goes, iron out some of the known issues, like buggy alpha channel on some objects, perhaps update or replace the common library objects by some new MSFS 2020 library objects, add working wind Ts...

    Awesome job, this just made VFR flying over the CZ much more fun! May I root for prioritization of LKKU as this has been my home airfield for past eight years? Still an active glider/TMG pilot there. :)

    Interesting attack, but I already said that. otherwise LKZD, what do you have in the list, so I also manage it with me and since I live here, it probably won't be more up-to-date, so keep it to you ;-)

    First of all, it's an absolutely great project! Thank you very much for getting into it. My personal thank you for having LKBE in the start kit :) Though I hope it will not demotivate other developers from creating their own Czech airports. On the contrary, I hope it will help them to concentrate on not presented ones and later use this work for modeling their own versions. Hope, LKKO, and LKPM will come soon as well. I also hope you are/will be in contact with other developers not to create duplicates (it's easy for us to delete not needed the way you described, but I think it would be a waste of your time).... One more question about removal. You mentioned two files to delete. Do I understand correctly, there are three to remove? modelLib-XXXX.BGL, XXXX-scene.BGL, and XXXX-POLY.BGL

    Hi Alex, I will prioritize LKKO and will check LKPM (still some copyright related issues to solve). As for the POLY.bgl - well spotted, thanks! I will reflect this in the description above and from the next update also in the readme.

    This is awesome. Thank you ! Just one comment. I really hope you creators will work together to avoid duplicates. For example the one that working on LKLB should not design Jasted as it is already part of the radio transmitters package. If he will add it we will have duplicate objects. It's the same with what happened with LKFR. The author included the radio transmitter next to it and it was part of the radio transmitter package now we got 2 duplicate items at the same place.

    Hello everyone, just two things: 1) In case you see an issue, please let me know under the discussion tab, not here. 2) For the moment, I do not really have priorities with the exception of LKCM and LKJI. So if you want me to convert some scenery from the original Revival 2017 package first, please let me know the ICAO (max two airfields). Thanks, Milan
