Anthony Lynch Scenery :: Ants Aussie Airports Complete

Recommended Posts

index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=screenshot&id=679

File Name: Ants Aussie Airports Complete

File Submitter: Anthony31

File Submitted: 03 Aug 2009

File Category: Anthony Lynch Scenery

This package includes the complete collection of Ants Aussie Airports Volumes 1 to 9. It includes 33 airports, airfields and helipads across Australia. Most of these airports include photoreal ground textures which are designed to blend best with the payware FTX textures. It is therefore recommended that you have these installed to see the airports at their best.

I have also taken the oppurtunity to make a few minor tweaks and nug fixes to the scenery since its original release as separate volumes. The most visible change is that Cooma, Tumut, Tindal and Darwin now have more accurate runway markings.

Here is a list of all the airports included:

New South Wales and Victoria

Cooma YCOM : Regional airport

Tumut YTMU : GA airfield

Polo Flat YPFT : GA airfield

Khancoban YKHA : Snowy river hydro company airstrip

Geehi : Landing ground (nrst YKHA 14910)

Adaminaby YADY : Light GA airfield

Gundaroo YGDO : Private airfield

Wedderburn YWBN: GA airfield

Wilton YWIO: Sydney Skydiving

Evans Head YEVD: old RAAF base

Casino YCAS: GA and glider airfield

Sth Grafton YSGR : GA airfield

Warnervale YWVA : GA airfield

World Trade Centre Helipad YWTC : Helipad on the Yarra River, Melbourne

Yarra Bank Helipad YYBK : Dual Helipads on the Yarra River, Melbourne

Queensland

Longreach YLRE : Regional airport

Barcaldine YBAR : Regional airport

Rockhampton YBRK : Regional airport

Bundaberg YBUD : Regional airport

Hamilton Island YBHM : Regional airport

Lady Elliot Island YLTT: Private island resort airfield

Northern Territory

Darwin Intl YPDN : International, Regional, GA and RAAF Base

Tindal YPTN : RAAF Base shared with Regional airport for Katherine

Darwin Hospital YXDH : Helipad

Robertson Barracks YRBK : Army helicopter base

Emkaytee YMKT : Light GA airfield

Batchelor YBCR : Skydiving airfield

Crab Claw Is : Small airstrip (nrst YDLV 19710)

Delissaville YDLV : Small airstrip

Dum in Mirrie Island YDII : Small airstrip

Albany Park : Old WWII RAAF base (nrst YBCR 18002)

Dundee Beach : Small airstrip (nrst YDII 18005)

Coomalie Creek YCCR : Old WWII RAAF base

Brilliant Anthony. A great idea and it will definitely help when it comes to a reinstall down the track.

A quick question though. You mention making some minor updates so I guess there is no harm to run the installer even though I have all your airports already installed so they get updated with your latest fixes?

Cheers,

Serge

No need to answer.

Read the readme file inside the downloaded zip file and it recommends deleting previous installed versions and using the new installer.

Regards,

Serge

Awesome! Thanks Anthony. Your work is the best. I have been flying around Hamilton Island since you released it and use it as my FBO in Air Hauler. Fits into FTX seamlessly. Will be updating things tonight if time permits me. Looking forward to things in the future. :yes:

Thank you gentleman

Serge is right (read the readme). Just delete your existing Ants Aussie Airports folder (or if you have tweaked things rename it so you can copy your tweaks back) and then run the installer.

Then just start FSX and make sure your scenery library is correct. One thing I've done differently is put my freeware Warnervale in a separate scenery folder. So if you don't have the FTX payware version just add Ants Aussie Airports Warnervale to your scenery library. I figured this would be easier rather than copying across files.

The main changes in this version are above mentioned changes to the runways at Cooma, Tumut, Tindal , Darwin (looks a lot better now I think).

I also remade the clubhouse at Sth Grafton and added the old engine near the front door.

Plus I recompiled most of the airports from volumes 1 to 5 . Nothing you'd notice by looking at them but the file sizes are a bit smaller now (I do like efficiency).

And as Mike says. Much easier to reinstall if it's all in one package

Great work Anthony, makes the whole package so much easier to use. Now that you have this done, I think there are a few airports south of Sydney that could use your touch... hint hint.

Thanks Anthony, upgraded my files. Just a question re the boat traffic file - do your modifications remain after the Hervey Bay boat traffic install?

Alex

I don't know. You'll have to ask ORBX about that. It depends on whether the ORBX install updates the boat traffic file or simply overwrites it.

It can be difficult dealing with the boat traffic file as it is a default file and it handles all the boat traffic. This is the reason I included it as a separate file to be manually added (there is nothing worse than overwriting default files in my opinion). There are instructions in my manual (ants aussie airports/documentation) that point to the AIBTC program which allows you to edit the boat traffic file. All I've done is use this program to delete routes 2784 and 2785 which serviced Hamilton Island from the default boat traffic file.

Hi Anthony,

What can I say that hasn't been said before. Your airports are so real and lifelike it is just unbelievable.

That is except for the static people standing round at the market in Evans Head. One day I bet you'll get them to move around like the boats do. Nitty nitty aren't I?

I am an ex member of the Motor Home Club (used to live in a bus) and we stayed many times at their Village in Casino. We first stayed there when the airport still had use of the full runway and I went up in a Jabiru for a joy flight. Then the runway was shortened and the Motor Home Village sprung up. What a buzz to see that you have modelled the whole area to perfection; even placing motor homes facing the right direction. I can't imagine the hours you must have spent with this project; but the results are there. FANTASTIC!!!

I know that the whole 33 airports you have developed are worth more, but please accept my donation of $30.00US as a gesture and appreciation of thanks. It must give you a buzz though to be so creative? Well Done

Cheers

Hank

Sorry to reopen this - but is there an updated installer for the complete airports that won't overwrite/mess with the OrbX YBUD as well as leaving Warnervale alone?

Many Thanks

Paul

Simplest solution for YBUD would be to run the ORBX YBUD installer again.

Do not forget to re-install the latest ORBX Library after doing the above.
