Alf's UK Airfields Volume 3 Scenery.

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. I have previously used AFX v1.04 running under Vista (not recommended by Flight1). The main problem seemed to be in compiling 'excludes'. I have now switched to using the excellent ADE v1.22 which has fixed my exclude problems. It is also possible to alter landclass texures with it also, a great improvement. I may update my earlier volumes with it.

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 don't appear. However under XP I'm using lower graphics settings and a less powerful PC.

Installing:

Whatever method you prefer.
1. 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. OR
2. Copy (or unzip) each of the respective scenery folders into Addon Scenery. OR
3. Make a named folder (i.e. ShobdonEGBS) for each of the airfields in the Addon Scenery folder, place the respective scenery folders into them and then install them into the Scenery Library in the usual method.
To uninstall just remove the files again.

A word of warning. I was having problems with losing ILS, especially Heathrow, Luton EMA and several others.

After several hours tracing & testing, the problem was found to be coming from "Alf's UK airfields" add-ons. Especially EGTZ (Old Warden), EGTD (Dunsford), EGTR (Elstree) and EGNF (Netherthorpe).

I've now deleted all of the files & my ILS is back to normal.
