Bocas del Toro International Scenery.

Bocas del Toro International Scenery.

This is a GMAX scenery of Bocas del Toro International Airport, an airport in Panama. This is part of a larger project I have done some work on. At present two other parts of that project that have been released, namely MPTO (Tocumen Intl--AFCAD only), and MPDA (Enrique Malek Intl--gmax scenery).

Bocas del Toro is an interesting community of locals, ex-patriates of various countries (such as the USA, Canada, and Germany), and tourists. Two regional carriers fly into there from Panama City, using mostly Shorts 360, ATR, and occasionally Fokker 27 aircraft.

FEATURES

-- all structures fully GMAX'ed...terminal building and tower, radio antenna, etc.
-- all structures at their exact, precise locations (FSX default scenery is not accurate)
-- realistic parking, based on the best real-world information available to me
-- more parking (max size: 15.1m = F27 size aircraft)
-- reworked cvx scenery (islands, roads, airport background) around MPBO
-- fixed the VOR shack for Bocas del Toro VOR
-- adjusted waterclass around the airport
-- adjusted Tower View
-- integrated vegetation and buildings with the surrounding autogen (recommend you run Very Dense)

INSTALLATION

1) I recommend creating a separate folder for all Panama scenery, such as E:\SCENERY\PANAMA.
2) Then create E:\SCENERY\PANAMA\SCENERY and E:\SCENERY\PANAMA\TEXTURE
2) Install the .bgl files into a \scenery folder.
3) Install the .bmp files into a \texture folder.
4) activate in scenery library.

Please note that if you have already installed my MPDA David airport scenery, you will already have a seasons.bgl file controlling seasons in Panama. That same file is included in this package too--it prevents brown airport background textures in winter in Panama. Winter may be the dry season in Panama, but its never that brown at Bocas.

This scenery was tested with FSX Deluxe SP1, FSX Deluxe SP2/Acceleration, FEX, FSGenesis terrain, and ASG. I cannot guarantee compatibility with any other add-ons, such as UTX, which I do not have.

RECOMMENDED FSX SETTINGS

Autogen: at least NORMAL, preferably EXTREMELY DENSE (At a rural place like Bocas, even on mid-level computers like mine you can run Dense or Extremely Dense Autogen. The airport blends best this way.)

Scenery Complexity Slider: EXTREMELY DENSE. (Setting it to "Sparse" or "Very Sparse" will result in a poor experience for you. In rural areas, frame rate is little affected by the Scenery Complexity Slider, so I recommend you turn it up when flying around Bocas.)
