Wake Island (PWAK). Improves the atolls shapes, coastlines and landclass. Also corrects the layout of the airport. By Tony Arnold.
This scenery is a remodelling of the basic FSX Wake Island based on Google Earth's representation. I have used FSX-KML to change the Atoll's shapes and coastlines and EZ-Landclass to play with the Landclass and Waterclass. I have used AFX to move the airport to fit the Google Earth position and to look more like the Google Earth setout.
I haven't included any buildings at all. What you will see will be Autogen buildings produced from the Landclass file. I haven't been able to find any pictures of the actual buildings and will continue to search for some and later add any I find as Gmax objects. You may notice outlines on the ground surface which I have included to show building positions (as shown on Google Earth).
Wake Island exists in FSX (covered in immense rainforest trees) and although apparently still a military airport from what I've gleaned off the net, it is an emergency strip in the middle of a big bit of ocean. Good for practicing long over-water navigation legs for those inclined to this. I've found that Google Earth has good coverage for a lot of the Pacific Atolls and have been working on more of them with FSX-KML. Wake is the first that I worked on and I intend to continue to release them once they've got to a good enough standard. If anyone wants to add buildings - airport and/or surrounds feel free to go right ahead.
This is the first scenery that I have released for FSX and should not cause any problems to anyone's system that I can think of. Nothing radical in the way of textures (haven't added any) and no changes to Navaids. Comments, criticism welcomed - and anyone who wants to add improvements, go right ahead. I think this a bit of an improvement on the basic FSX representation.
Zip contents are based on the standard FSX scenery library setup. The AFX file goes into the Addon Scenery/Scenery folder and then just add the 'WakeIsland-PWAK' and 'WakeIsland-LC' folders to your Addon Scenery folder and activate both in your FSX Scenery Library.
(You can add Sebastian Jaeger's Carrier and 2 escorts - wake.zip - also at Avsim - which gives you a landable carrier to practice with offshore of Wake!)
