#Real-Life #Megapack #Handcrafted Czech Republic Drag and Drop

(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 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) Functioning landing Ts
(ii) Conditional visibility of some static objects (so that e.g. the gliders are not visible at night or when raining)
(iii) Cut the grass on runways and taxiways (once allowed by the SDK).

      Thanks for a positive feedback! MSFS version of LKPL is on a to-do list of its author of the original scenery for X Plane. That's all know for the moment.

    Great job, guys! But to be quite satisfied, add LKTC, my home airfield, please. Is there any chance?
    • apollon01
      2 month(s) ago
      Hi Radovan, LKTC is under development by the author of the original scenery for X Plane, so it will not be a part of the Revival 2020 package.
    • RadovanB

      Understood, thanks for your answer. But could you be more specific, who is that guy working on LKTC to get a chance to contact him? Anyhow, I have to say once more - extraordinary job. I have visited already alot of airports from you package with my litlle e-C152 and I really enjoy it! Thanks to whole your team.

    Hi, there are already sceneries on this site for LKPA, LKJC and LKCR - is there a reason that you still include them in your package?
    • apollon01
      3 month(s) ago
      Hi jalfrezi,
      most likely the conversion happened before the new ones were released.

      In any case, broader choice is always good for the user 😊

    Milan, it is perfect 😊. LKLT is beautiful and ideal start airport for Prague city overflying.
    Thanks a lot
    • apollon01

      Yeah, it looks good especially if you consider that the original scenery had been published almost exactly 14 years ago!

    That's a great feeling to see an alert that there is a new version of your GA Revival 2020 and while clicking on it thinking, which airports it will be this time. My map of Czech airports looks better and better so fast. I hope we'll see some updates from other developers as well.

    Hi, please, will Staňkov also be converted - LKSA? The original scenery was from Michal Krechowski to MFS 2004. thank! Otherwise, great job!
    PS: Let me ask you, what program do you use to create (conversion), the scenery for FS2020? I'd like to try something myself. Thanks!
    • apollon01
      3 month(s) ago
      Hi VipCZ, unfortunately Krechi did not give a permission to convert LKSA. I am using ModelConverterX to convert models to gltf and extract location information of the objects. Also, if necessary, I am using Blender to correct the alpha channel. Good luck!

    Hi Milan,
    maybe I just did not see it, but is there anything existent for LKPD - Pardubice?
    • apollon01
      4 month(s) ago
      Hi elloco,

      there is a scenery for FSX over at flightsim.cz, though the author did not give a permission for its conversion into the Revival 2017 package. Sorry for that.

      Hi Petr, unfortunately the author of the original scenery is not around any longer so I had to remove LKPM from the list. Sorry for that. Milan

      Hi, great update, thank you for getting holidays even better! Just noticed that there is LKZD mentioned in "Pending" list. JFYI: It's already converted: https://flightsim.to/file/1408/macerka-airport So, I guess it can be moved to "Already available"
    • apollon01

      True, thanks for the heads up. Corrected.

      Thanks behpet, well spotted! It has no influence on the scenery fortunately and I will correct the name in the next update. As for LKTC and LKPL - these are on the list for the time being.

      Thanks for the tip! And, author, thank you for the update. All tested, all works great. Other developers, unfortunately, seemed to put their work on hold 😞 (hope I am wrong).
