Land's End SeaPlanes.

Land's End SeaPlanes.

Introduction: First, I would like to thank you for downloading this freeware project. It is a fictional airlines based on “Real World” places. Where possible, I’ve tried to stay as true to the photographs I had available. The “Thank You”(s) for this project are numerous.

KNOWN PROBLEMS:

There are several Seaplane bases that you will get a “CRASH” when trying to taxi up the ramp. This is due to Microsoft’s scenery mesh and I can not fix it. Tried! But, you can turn off your “Crash Detection”!

REQUIRED:
1. Microsoft FSX
2. Land’s End SeaPlanes East Coast Tours & Cargo
3. Amphibian Aircraft

SPECIAL NOTE:

Special Note on Manual Installation: My previous releases have resulted in a number of e-mail concerning problems after manual installation. All but one of these problems were the result of copying the files to the wrong location! If you are going to manually install the files…..

1. Unzip the downloaded zip file LESPNP.zip
2. You will find:
A. Self Installer.
B. HTML Read-Me Folder.
3. Run the “Self Installer and when it says “Browse to your main FSX Installation” Don’t. Browse to a temporary folder.
4. Once installed you find the folder, “Addon Scenery”
5. Copy the Addon Scenery Folder to you Main FSX installation.

The Sceneries:

Here’s a list of the airports and seaplane docks I’ve added scenery/afcad to:
