Palm Springs International Airport (KPSP), California (CA). Patch for the Shez's FS2004 Palm Springs Regional Airport scenery (PSP2004.ZIP) to make it work in FSX. Updates by P. Nigel Grant. Original by Shehryar Ansari.

Converting the Shez’s FS2004 Palm Springs International Airport (KPSP) to FSX.

The Shez’s (Shehryar Ansari) scenery for Palm Springs International Airport (KSPS) was one of my favourite sceneries in FS2004, and I have always enjoyed flying between there and San Diego or Los Angeles.

Imagine my disappointment when this scenery would not work properly in FSX – most of the buildings reproduced okay but some ground polygons were messed up.

For my own use, I have had a try at modifying KPSP to make it work in FSX, quite a lot of work to do this, using trial and error to determine which field and other scenery files to remove, and converting an AFCAD file to FSX using ADE, a very intuitive program from “Scruffy Duck”.

Without going round the scenery inch by inch, most of the buildings seem to transfer without trouble. I have had to adjust some of the aprons since the asphalt ones were not displaying correctly. Most of the buildings are there and I have not touched any of these. There is still a little bit of flashing with some ground textures, notably under the covered walkway, but if you are paying attention to your flying you should not notice these!

The zip file “kpsp_FSX”, of which this text is a part, provides the files and instructions to modify the Shez’s FS2004 scenery of Palm Springs International Airport (psp2004.zip at AVSIM, FlightSim to allow it to function in FSX. Shehryar Ansari has kindly given consent for my uploading of this patch.

To use this scenery in FSX you need to do the following two steps:

1. Remove the 5 bgl files from your KPSP scenery folder, as listed in the attached text file – “remove”. I suggest you create a folder called “removals” in this scenery folder and just move the five files into there.
2. Move the three bgl files in the attached “add_to_sceneryfolder” folder, into the KPSP scenery folder.

Problems:

Sorry but you are on your own with this modification. Please do not contact me for problems in FSX, this was produced for my own use and it does the job for me – however I would like to share my efforts with you and if it works, that’s just great!. Please do not seek help from the Shez for problems in FSX, this patch is not his work, and I appreciate his approval for allowing me to upload this conversion patch.

Shehryar Ansari for the original magnificent scenery.

Luis Sa for his SBuilderX program.

I hope you enjoy this little importation.
