Alfs UK Airfields. Improvements to several small UK airfields, based on aerial views such as those from Google Earth. Uses only default FSX scenery objects. Included are Andrewsfield (EGSL), Clacton (EGSQ), Cosford (EGWC), Elstree (EGTR), Lydd (EGMD), Old Warden (EGTZ), Popham (EGHP). By Alf Denham.
Although FSX scenery is a great improvement on FS2004, there are still many small airfields in the UK with little or no details. I have tried to improve this in a small way. I do not have any direct knowledge, or indeed any useful photos of these airfields so do not aim to make them accurate, only better.
They were compiled using aerial views from Google Earth, Pooleys UK Flight Guide, FSX SDK Object Placement Tool and AFX v1.04 running under Vista (not recommended by Flight1). The main problem seemed to be in compiling 'excludes'. In some cases I made seperate exclude files and with perseverence it worked with me. I hope it works in your set-up.
I only used the standard FSX scenery data so there are no dedicated objects, only generic ones, but I hope it does improve some of the smaller airfields. There may be some slight problems. I find it works OK without OR with FSX SP2 running under Vista but running under Windows XP and no SP2 a few objects dont appear and a few trees that should be excluded appear. However under XP I'm using lower graphics settings and a less powerful PC.
Just copy all the .bgl files in the Scenery folders for each respective airfield into ...Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/Scenery. It always works for me but if you prefer, unzip to a temporary folder first then copy them over from there.
Currently I have done -

If they travel OK to the big world out there I may do some more!
