Introduction

The light version is a replacement for the regular version, you can choose which one you want to download. The light version does not include the stadium to save some performance.

Thun Airfield in the Bernese Oberland is considered to be one of the most beautiful
airfields in Switzerland with its magnificent panorama of the Alps. It is located about 15 miles southeast of Bern, the capital of Switzerland, not far from Lake Thun on the northern edge of the Alps.

The site originally served as a military airfield but was decommissioned in 1955 and has since been used as a civilian airfield for light aircraft and gliders. The original military affiliation of the airfield is still visible today due to its direct location in the middle of the military area and has been faithfully recreated in the scenery by several details. The first aeronautical activities in Thun were mentioned in 1910.

Thun Airfield has two 800 by 30 meter (2600 by 100 feet) grass-runways in parallel with a 14-32 orientation. One is meant to be use for gliders, the other for piston aircraft.

This is a highly detailed airfield with all buildings and ground textures created as accurately as possible. The airfield contains many small details to give life to the scenery. All the main buildings on and near the airfield have been modeled as accurately as possible. The scenery contains photorealistic ground textures for the airfield and surrounding area with a resolution of 10cm/per pixel.

We are sure you will be enchanted by the ambience and atmosphere of landing at this airfield.

Vielen herzlichen Dank für das Update für Thun!

Any chance for a SU9 update please? 😊

Hallo

Nach wie vor bin ich begeistert von eurer Umsetzung des LSZW. Leider habe ich immer noch ziemliche Performance Einbrüche. Eben habe ich mir LSZW noch einmal frisch heruntergeladen und installiert. Das Problem besteht leider immer noch.

Lustig ist, dass die Einbrüche ausschliesslich passieren, wenn die Stockhornarena ins Blickfeld, resp. den Bildschirmbereich gelangt (Egal ob unmittelbar davor, oder aus weiterer Distanz wie Interlaken oder Reichenbach oder Bern, sobald man richtung Arena blickt, geht die Performance runter). Flieg ich über die Arena hinweg, sobald sie hinter/unter dem Bildschirmrand verschwindet läuft alles flüssig, auch der Flugplatz. Also muss es m. E. an der Arena liegen. Ist euch dieses Problem bekannt?

Gibt es im schlimmsten Fall die Möglichkeit, die Arena weg zu löschen?

Viele Grüsse

Daniel

Any hope for an updated version with better performance? Would be great 😊

Hi - mittlerweile ist der hässliche Schutthügel am Nordende des Platzes weg. Gibt's dafür vielleicht bald ein Update? Danke für die Top-Arbeit!

A very nice PDF manual is inside the package, which just underlines the passion for detail that went into this airport addon!

You just gotta love the "Conny's Flugplatz-Beitzli" sign (but why is it closed? 😞 )

It worked for me with the current Sim Update 5, however I noticed that there is no "dirt effect" (which has been introduced with SU 5) when landing (unlike with the unmodified scenery). Perhaps some "material properties" need to be adjusted, to make it really a "grass runway"?

Also, while I am not the person who measures frames per second I did notice some "jerky movements" around the airport. Perhaps the resources (textures?) could be optimised further, as others have suggested? Because the "frame drop" (subjectively measured, as I mentioned) seems a bit too much for such a tiny - but cute and absolutely lovely! - airport.

Keep it up the good work!

a lovely frame killer for VR! once again... you should learn how to compress images! example: the roof from the stadium and the other old roof are about 10-17 MB you can compress those textures to less than 1 MB - this is a flightsim not a walksim guys! 😉

Vielen Dank!

Freude herrscht!

Hermann

Danke Marco!

Leider ist bei mir der Windsack zu gross!

Are the performance issues in VR solved?

Unfortunatelly this airport was dreadful to the performance in VR. Had to remove it.

Has this been improved?

It did work for a time but since it has not been updated in a while, I will leave it with 4 stars for now. Otherwise amazing work!

One word: Perfect.

Schönen guten Tag ich habe diesen Flugplatz heruntergeladen in den community Ordner gemacht aber er ist nicht im Spiel was muss ich machen
