Penticton Airport (CYYF), Canada. Patch for the John Stinstrom / Ray Lunning FS2004 Penticton Airport scenery to make it work in FSX. By P. Nigel Grant.

Converting the Stinstrom/Lunning FS2004 Penticton Airport (CYYF) to FSX.

Living in Vancouver, I am very biased towards flying in British Columbia and in FS2004 we had many magnificent sceneries in the province, including John Stinstrom's CYYF Penticton Airport, as modified by Ray Lunning (CYYF4UT.zip). Penticton is a very pretty airport to fly in and out of, sitting on a flat neck of land between two large lakes - Okanagan and Skaha.

For my own use, I have had a try at modifying CYYF to make it work in FSX, using SBuilderX to resolve ground issues, and converting an AFCAD file to FSX using ADE, a very intuitive program from “Scruffy Duck”. I have extended aprons to hide some FSX land class intrusions, and replaced the fences using ADE. I have converted the two traffic bgl’s to FSX format. In addition, in both packages, the aircraft.cfg file in the 0_AI CYYF_B1900 Pacific Coasts folder had a mis-reference to its requisite texture, resulting in a black Pacific Coastal B1900, and this package includes a revised aircraft.cfg.

Also, the Stinstrom/Lunning scenery used “EZ Scenery Creator” – I have activated all its library files into my FSX scenery library, they seem to work okay but have caused a substantial increase in loading times. If anyone knows of any techniques to reduce this increased loading time I would appreciate hearing of them.

Without going round the scenery inch by inch, most of the buildings seem to transfer without trouble, and look good.

The zip file “cyyf_FSX”, of which this text is a part, provides the files and instructions to modify the Stinstrom/Lunning FS2004 scenery of Penticton Airport (cyyf_4ut.zip) to allow it to function in FSX. John Stinstrom and Ray Lunning have kindly given consent for my uploading of this patch. (Please note, I do not know whether these modifications would work in John Stinstrom’s original scenery (cyyf_j2.zip))

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

1. Remove the four bgl files from your CYYF 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 two files into there.
2. Move the four bgl files in the attached “add_to_sceneryfolder” folder, into the CYYF scenery folder.
3. Move the aircraft.cfg file in the attached “Pacific Coastal B1900” folder, into the 0_AI CYYF_B1900 Pacific Coasts aircraft folder, and overwrite the existing aircraft.cfg file.
4. Activate the EZ Scenery Creator library files in your FSX scenery library.

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 (I have Ultimate TerrainX and FSGenesis mesh) – however I would like to share my efforts with you and if it works, that’s just great!

Please do not seek help from John Stinstrom or Ray Lunning for problems in FSX, this patch is not their work, and I appreciate their approval for allowing me to upload this conversion patch.

Luis Sa for his SBuilderX program.

By the way, I have created Vancouver International Airport for FSX, including a version compatible with the payware Vancouver+ created by Jon Patch and Holger Sandmann – if you want some very dramatic flying, this payware scenery of southwest British Columbia is well worth its cost.

I hope you enjoy this little importation.
