Richmond International Airport (KRIC), Virginia (VA). A makeover of the default scenery, now with crosswind runways activated. Also includes assigned parking, support vehicle roads rebuilt, new control tower, extra fuel trucks and more. By Ray Smith.

I have given this airport a total makeover designed with the latest version of ADE(v1.37) and made only for the FSX default airport: one file with the Crosswind rwy's activated and in full operation, now activated by ADE where all 3 rwy's will be used for takeoff/landing and one file as the default rwy operation: assigned parking with extra parking, new control tower, extra fuel trucks, lighted helipad, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from the roof of the control tower (when in tower view) please view the readme before installation.

There are 2 BGL files: KRIC_ADE_RS.BGL and KRIC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL

The 'KRIC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL' version is with the Xwind rwy's activated and in full operation, the other version KRIC_ADE_RS.BGLis without. Parking is the same in both.

PLEASE NOTE: when using ATIS with the KRIC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake rwy's, this is the method used in activating Xwind rwy's created by Jim Vile and should be ignored or if prefered use the version KRIC_ADE_RS.BGL

NOTE: For those that have Acceleration installed will see extra flood lighting in the Cargo area and some other areas.

To Install:

1. simply take the BGL file of your choice and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.

2. Start up the Flight sim and the changes will be present.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ONLY USE ONE BGL FILE AT A TIME:
ie: make sure there is only ONE 'KRIC.BGL' FILE in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other KRIC.bgl to avoid incorrect parking.

To Uninstall:

1. Delete/remove the BGL file and the default will then be active.

Addition: I have added two multi story carparks at the rear of the main terminal, for those that wish to see them you need to add the texures for them, please follow these steps:
Browse to the FSX\Scenery\NAME\Texture folder. Go down the list until you see JFK_Term1_2_Tower.dds(day texture) and JFK_Term1_2_Tower_LM.dds (night texture). "COPY" them out of that folder and "PASTE" them into the Scenery\Global\Texture folder.

Both files work perfectly well without these added and are not a requirement.

Acknowledgements

ADE Utility (freeware) by Jon Masterson.

Jim Vile for his Technique that activates crosswind runways.

And my ever enduring wife to put up with the hours spent making these files.

TIP: when at KRIC in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle" allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (i allocated a button on my controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.

Enjoy and happy flying.
