About this file

Hi,

this is the missing airport "Wasserkuppe - EDER" in Germany. 
Version 2.0 Update: Now with custom modelled buidlings of the hangar and the main building.

Done by Marvin Hofmann (data, reference pictures and testing) and me (modelling, texturing and SDK).

--- IMPORTANT ---

For best results (gliders, trailers and glider winch), you also need the "Mikea.at - AssetPack": https://flightsim.to/file/1923/mikea-at-assetpack

Hope you enjoy it.

Features:

  • NEW: custom buildings matching real life (hangar & main building)
  • sloped runway based on airport chart
  • two parking spots to start cold and dark
  • same INFO frequency as in current airport chart
  • custom apron textures 
  • custom center line texture to match real world
  • custom objects at side of runway and middle marker object
  • added planes to have more "life" at the airfield
  • added streetlights and parking lot with cars

 

Known issues:

  • In some cases runway texture appears strange when flying above it -> seems to be "standard" behaviour so currently no fix possible
  • no taxiway structure (I do not know if this influences AI trafic)

Installation:

  • just copy the folder "z_karlo-airport-eder-wasserkuppe" as it is into you Community folder
  • download https://flightsim.to/file/1923/mikea-at-assetpack and place into you Community folder
  • if you come from version 1.1, please delete old directory "karlo-airport-eder-wasserkuppe" from your community directory first. New package has a "z_" infront of its name to solve issues when using Navigraph data.

  • thanks to mikea.at for providing the asset pack! 
  • improved accuracy by using OpenStreetMap: © OpenStreetMap contributors - www.openstreetmap.org

    Hi Karlo!

    Great job on recreating this iconic airfield! I also really like the custom windsock you created :-)

    You could use this until we updated it: Then you will have the Radar-Ball: https://flightsim.to/file/4782/tv-and-radio-transmitters-of-germany

    Great work.

    Could You tell me what`s the reason that objects at the side of runway appearing late?

    Do you still have this issue? I do not have it anymore... It comes from how MSFS calculates the time when to show objects. Its based on their size on screen. Small objects will show up very late as they do not use much space. The current workaround (that also I have used) is to create an invisivle plane to the 3D Model so that MSFS thinks it is much bigger than it actually is. Second, you create the object big within the 3D Modeling tool and then resize within the SDK.

    Hi, thank you very much. I'm currently working with a friend at the "real" buildings. Hopefully it will not take long anymore to release them :-)

    Great! Thank you very much. I bought FlightSim to fly around the Rhön because I was born there and Wasserkuppe was really missing, being the "Berg der Flieger" in Germany.

    I realized that the building down at the end of the runway is no longer there and I think they rebuild the "Tower-Building" completely new.

    No terrain issues by the way (but landing is not so easy on the sloped runway, might be getting the new Courchevel :-))

    Yes, for testing I created LODs but this did not change anything unfortunately.
