Land's End SeaPlanes Part IV Scenery.

Land's End SeaPlanes Part IV Scenery.

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.


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”!

1. Microsoft FSX
2. Land’s End SeaPlanes East Coast Tours & Cargo
3. Land’s End SeaPlanes Northern Passage
4. Land’s End SeaPlanes West Coast Travel
5. Land’s End SeaPlanes Southern Crossing
6. Amphibian Aircraft


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…..One other problem reported during manual install is not overwriting files when asked….YES, you have to overwrite. Each scenery package builds on the previous scenery package…if you only have Part IV, then you’ll be missing models and textures from Parts I, II, and III.

1. Unzip the downloaded zip file LESPWC.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. When the system ask to overwrite, click “YES”!


STEP 1 - From the main FSX screen Click on Settings as pictured below

STEP 2 - Click on Scenery Library.

STEP 3 - Add the folder LESP Southern Crossing.

Settings: The scenery was designed with default settings for scenery, with the exception of Scenery Complexity…which I have set as high as possible….

The setting which has the largest effect upon display is Mesh Complexity…to high the mountains may cover part of the seaplane dock…to low….and they may not connect with the land…

Here’s the settings I use…(See HTML Read-Me)

That’s it…….Go Fly!

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

Part IV, Southern Crossing

Unfortunately the lack of water in the great American west prevented every location from having a seaport. That being said, I'm using AP to designate locations with an "Airport Only", SP "Seaport Only" and AP/SP for both.

KYUM (AP) - Yuma, AZ; Yuma International and MCAS KGEU (AP/SP) - Glendale, AZ; Home of the Cardinals (NFL) 51AZ (AP/SP) - Grapevine, AZ; Grapevine Airport T16 (AP) - Reserve, AZ; Reserve Airport KTCS (AP/SP) Truth or Consequences, NM; Regional Airport KROW (AP) - Roswell, NM; Famous UFO Crash Site F97 (AP) - Seagraves, TX; Airport 003A (SP) - Seagraves, TX; Seaport T88 (AP) - Colorado City, TX; Airport 003B (SP) - Colorado City, TX; Seaport KMKN (AP) - Comanche County, TX; Municipal Airport 003C (SP) - Comanche County, TX; Camp Comanche KACT (AP) - Waco TX; Regional Airport 003D (SP) - Waco TX; Seaport 00R (AP) - Livingston TX; Municipal Airport 003E (SP) - Livingston TX; Seaport KLCH (AP) - Lake Charles, LA; Regional Airport 003F (SP) - Lake Charles, LA; Seaport LA64 (SP) - Bayou Boeuf, Amelia LA; Seaport 3LA2 (SP) - La Combe, LA; Southern Natural Gas, Co. 5AL2 (SP) - Theodore, AL; Midstream Fuel Services 1FL5 (SP) - West Bay, FL; West Bay Creek FD80 (AP/SP) - Old Town, FL: Manatee Airport FL72 (SP) - Tampa, FL; Mezrah Seaplane Dock X01 (AP/SP) - Everglades, FL; Everglades Airpark

FLIGHTS - Didn’t do them this time….needed the space. You should be able to find each of the sceneries with the information provided above!
