#Real-Life #Handcrafted Netherlands Drag and Drop

About this file

This is a small general aviation airport on the frisian island Ameland, Netherlands. The scenery covers the whole area of the airport including the solar park. The complete feature list can be found below. All custom buildings are completely handcrafted.

All information, procedures, and charts for your real or virtual flight to Ameland Airport can be found on the official website: https://www.ehal.nl

ATTENTION: The Ameland lighthouse is not part of this scenery anymore. It is now distributed with my Lighthouses Wadden Sea NL scenery in order avoid conflicts between both packages and for a clear  distinction between airports and landmarks. However, it comes in a separate directory to allow for installing the Ameland lighthouse without installing all other lighthouses.

If you like my scenery, I would be very happy about a small donation to buy me a coffee or a beer. Please find the donation link below and in my profile: https://flightsim.to/profile/SinusJayCee This is of course 100% optional.

Features

  • Tower building
  • Hanger building
  • Solar park Ameland
  • Current runway and taxiway layout
  • Marking of runway and taxiways with white and blue pylons
  • Animated signal island indication landing direction depending on wind direction
  • Custom fences with special signs
  • Helipad
  • Multiple parking positions
  • Some generic objects (windsocks, tables, fuel station, cars)
  • Removed auto-gen buildings on the grass
  • Covered undesired objects in aerial image

Planned Features

  • Adjust hight and color of grass on runway and taxiways
  • Custom windsocks to closer match the real ones
  • Perimeter fence
  • Maybe some additional Ameland landmarks
Installation
Copy "sinusjaycee-ameland" from the zip file to your community folder.

Optional: If you are not using my Lighthouses Wadden Sea NL scenery yet, you may give it a try to get the Ameland lighthouse with animated light and radar. It can also be installed separately by only installing "sinusjaycee-lighthouse-ameland" from that package.

Updating
Make sure you delete the old version of the scenery from the community folder before installing the new one.

Support
If you should have any questions, difficulties, or suggestions, please contact me on Flightsim.to, Reddit, or the official MSFS forum.

This scenery has initially been uploaded to https://flightsim.to/ and updates are distributed through this page as well. If you downloaded the scenery from elsewhere, make sure you have the latest version

    Hi! Very nice work! Where did you get the ground signs and the various runway objects (white blocks, taxi dividers, etc?) If you have custom made them, could I use them for my EHMZ custom airport I'm currently building? Of course I will credit you.

    Thanks :) All those objects are hand-crafted. Just PM me which objects you need, then I can send them to you.

    Many thanks for this great (little) scenery. Flew here a few times as a student pilot. Is it possible for you to change the recreation areas into proper RV's/sta-caravan's? And perhaps to change those multi story houses into more realistic (low) houses? Anyway love (your) Ameland airport

    Thanks for your positive feedback! Since you have been there as a real pilot, let me know if you spot any inaccuracies :) Yeah, it bothers me as well that auto-gen doesn't do a very good job in the surroundings, most obvious the multi-story buildings. I have not yet found the time to investigate how to change this, but it is already on my list.

    Beautiful airport, thank you! But could you add a star to is so it is easier to find on the map?

    SinusJayCee replied
    October 17, 2020
    I'm happy you like it :) The airport should have a star since version 1.2 iirc and it shows up on my world map with a star. Can you confirm that you have the latest version installed?

    You are totally right, my apologies. I must have been blinded by the beautiful North Sea coast. Great airport and perfect to practice landings. Thanks again!

    For some reason this scenery, version 1.4, doesn´t want to load. No problems with the Waddenzee lighthouses from the other download or other addons. Any suggestions?

    SinusJayCee replied
    October 13, 2020
    This is strange. I just uploaded a new version. In theory, there should be no difference with respect to the loading of the scenery, but you should give it a try. Just to be sure: You deleted the old version of the scenery before installing the new one, didn't you?

    No joy, not with version 1.5 nor with the new MSFS patch (1.9.5). Could it be that my Community folder is on g:\FS\Community\ ?
    image
    SinusJayCee replied
    October 14, 2020
    That's bad, lets try to track this down. My community folder is also on a second drive outside of a MS folders. Furthermore, since other scenery are working for you. So this shouldn't be the issue. Can you provide more details on the exact error? Is the airport shown in the world map? (It can be distinguished from the default EHAL by the number of parking positions. The stock version has only one.) In the sim, are just the buildings missing or do you also not see the taxiway and the runway? Can you also provide a screenshot of the content of your community folder and also of the content of the "sinusjaycee-ameland" folder?

    Solved! I deactivated the Waddensea and Ameland lighthouse scenery, launched the sim and your custom airfield appeared. Afterwards I activated the Waddensea and Ameland lighthouse again and everything appeared as desired.

    Just a last remark: the windsock is 180 degrees wrong. You should orient it (180 degrees) in the scenery editor. It seems a very common mistake and really some kind of bug in the editor.

    SinusJayCee replied
    October 14, 2020
    Great to hear that it is working now! I've no idea what caused this. Thanks for noticing the issue with the windsock, I'll fix this! The windsock is quite buggy anyway. It has properties to configure it's height and the sock length, but both are simply ignored.

    wow this is good quality!! any change you could do EHST and EHOW to? i fly out of those two airports in real life. would love to have good quality scenery in the sim as wel

  • image
    SinusJayCee replied
    October 13, 2020
    Thanks, I'm glad you like it :) EHST and EHOW are not on my list yet. How is the general quality of those airfields atm? If they are really horrible, I can do some basic improvements using stock assets. Unfortunately, I don't have enough material like pictures from those airfields for modeling the buildings. I'd also like to finish some of my other projects first :)

    October 22, 2020
    EHST is my real world home airport and it's realy bad. runway headings are wrong and all the hangars are depicted as 5 story buildings XD. if you could replace those with, even default, hangars that would improve it allot. and put some red white markers on the runway ends?

    Looking great! But the runway numbers are the wrong way around ;-)

    SinusJayCee replied
    October 12, 2020
    Are you referring to the runway numbers in the world map when selecting a starting position? Thanks for spotting this! I will fix it. It is quite intransparent in the SDK which number is assigned to which end when the runway has no numbers on it ;)

    Yeah, that's what I already thought! Thanks again for this great scenery

    The first version of my Lighthouses Wadden Sea NL scenery has been released: https://flightsim.to/file/1596/lighthouses-wadden-sea-nl The Ameland lighthouse is now distributed with that package and is not part of the EHAL scenery anymore. Please make sure your update the EHAL scenery in order to avoid conflicts between both packages. Details can be found in the install instructions. Please don't hesitate to contact me if there should be any problems.

    Very, very nice. Is the post on reddit about the lighthouse pack from you? Can't wait for that one as it has moving lights if i understood correctly.

    October 10, 2020
    Thanks! Yes, the Reddit post is from me and it's correct that the lighthouses will have animated lights. Expect the first release very soon.

    They work, and maybe smaller form some than expected so you would'nt see them. Checked with original removed and data file removed (as with every update) Flying with cessna 172, 1100 feet, straight approaches Results may vary, using an 1070 Maxq. Schiermonikoog: light starts at around 1.5 mile distance approach, but you keep seeing it until 3.4 miles. Ameland: Light starts around: 3.4 miles approach, up to 5 miles when passed. Terschelling: Lights start around 2.8 miles, up to 4.9 passed. To conclude, they work for me :)
    image
    SinusJayCee replied
    October 17, 2020
    Thanks for your detailed feedback! The initial visibility distance depends on the size of the lighthouse (larger objects pop up earlier in MSFS), and Ameland and Terschelling are larger than Schiermonikoog. I will try to further improve this.

    the lights of the lighthouse are brillant in the dark ! Maybe the Brandaris and Vlieland one day?

    Thanks :) I'm actually currently working on a lighthouse pack. Schiermonnikoog Noordertoren and Zuidertoren are already done. Once I finished Brandaris, I'll do a first release. Vlieland Vuurduin is also on the list.

    For some strange reason is the sim loosing a part of scenery when other airports come in the first 3 rows to choose. The Tower scenery stays but the new lighthouse, runway, helipad and solarfield is gone. I have installed 2x by deleting the old one complete but with no luck.
