NOTAM

We're happy that you love our mod collection, but until we've found contributors to the project, we have to postpone working on requests, because we simply have no time anymore for our own projects.

Though all requests that came in until April 10 are on the request list and there is a good chance that coming updates of the collection will see at least one of the airports from this list.

Thanks for your support and enjoy your night landings!


Dear all!

Nothing changed but we've setup an external project web page for you.

Why?

Of course it is not possible to integrate a collection of mods into the Scenery Map.

Due to the shear number of mods it is not possible to post sceenshots for the airports to give you an idea what to expect from the collection.

The growing size of the project cried for some kind of documention to get it all sorted.

On the project's web page you will find a screenshot for each mod and you can follow the progress.

Check the Google Map with markers to see which airports are already included.

 


Do not forget to check the dependencies listed above to get the full experience.


We're looking for contributors to build a small team to cope with the growing demand.

As of today our mod was downloaded 3700+ times. The airports, published before we started the collection, sum up to 13000+ downloads.

These airports are now part of the collection but still availabe for separate download.

Basic knowledge of the DEV-mode editor will be good, 3D Blender skills will be great, but not mandatory.

Send me a dm if you're interested.

How do I apply an update?

Whenever an update is published you can overwrite all the files in your current folder, nothing will be lost, just more airports will be added to your collection.

Will the mod mix with payware airports?

Yes it will, and because the mod typically ships with buildings, facilities and technical installations as well as lights, you should stay with the payware airport, unless you're a fan of total chaos.

Do I need VFR skills to land on these airports?

You should take some VFR lessons for sure, but NO, with a few exceptions all airports have RNAV or ILS based approaches.

The mod doesn't work at all.

Make sure, that the folder containg the two files layout.json & manifest.json is placed in your community folder.

Keep in mind, that using an Addon Linker (available @flightsim.to) gives you much more flexibility.

Is it important to keep the directory structure?

No, it's just a recommendation to keep your mods in order.

Do I need the Deluxe or Premium Edition?

No, the Standard Edition is sufficient, as everything was build with assets from the Standard Edtition. Additionally some free community assets are necessary, check the dependencies.

Are there customized 3D objects?

No, everything was build with assets from the Standard Edtition. Missing buildings have been replaced with default objects that fit the size and the look alike.

Additionally some free community assets are necessary, check the dependencies.

Must I keep the ICAO directory structure?

No, it's not a must, it's just a recommendation to manage your growing collection of mods when using an addon linker. This way you can easily activate or deactivate a complete region.

The airport folder for the community folder is the one with the 2 json files (layout & manifest). You can even rename this folder.

But you should not never rename the folder "scenery".

If you open the layout.json with a text editor you will see, that there is a given path to the folder "scenery": "path": "scenery/scenery.bgl".

If you rename the folder "scenery" the mod won't work anymore.

    Thanks for the great work! The BKPR airport in Pristina looks so much better now! The gate is now connected with the taxiway! It would be great when you could add also parkings at the gates with some yellow lines to make the terminal work correctly 😊

    Hi from Japan, great work! Could you take a look at RJBB, RJFR, and RJGG? These are some of the bigger airports at Japan but the night lights etc. are a bit sad on default.

    Thank you for your patience with my inexperience. I use AddonsLinker. After placing the dependencies in the "Community" folder, do I also need to enable each of them when I enable one of your airports in the megapack?
    • EDDB2020
      6 day(s) ago
      Hi, I would recommend that, because mostly all airports will need the dependencies to show all placed objects. Typically it's the glideslope antenna coming with the mikeaat mod and some fancy stuff like a fire hydrant and some barrels.And I remember to have used objects from the military mod for an airport somewhere in the Middle East.

    Dear Stefan, thank you very much with this masterpiece. Got another 4 airports today and they've been recreated in an awesome way!. Thanks also for the excellent work on SVCS.

      Thanks Ed, especially for your support on SVCS, it was a honor and fun alltogether.

      It certainly is. Was there on my chopper looking around the different zones of the airport and now it looks very good as it should. Also an honor to me. Thanks for this excellent contribution to the community, since there are a lot of empty airports in the default MSFS world.

    Could you please please do KBNA? It is my home airport and it is sad to see that half the hangars are non-existant and nobody seems to be planning on making mods for it.
    • EDDB2020
      7 day(s) ago
      Hi, I will check KBNA later in the sim, if it can be done easily.

      When doing this other Guy a favour with his airports around Las Vegas I was shocked how poor the sat images and the AI airports in the US still appear, given that we had the US update.

      Also, I'm thinking about publishing some very easy to understand video tutorials in the coming days.

      You have no idea, how easy it is what I'm doing, and the best thing is: it will not harm your installation of the sim in any way, because the mod resides in the community folder and is pulling default assets from the sim to show up in your scenery. It's a one way street.

      If the mod works you're good, if not you repair or delete it.
