Scenery Oxenhope Airfield UK, for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Horizon VFR Photographic Scenery Generation X (Vol. 3). Situated on a hill, high above the town of Haworth in the heart of Yorkshire's stunning 'Bronte Country', Oxenhope offers a challenge to the pilot that is rarely found in the United Kingdom. The runways are short and the airfield is surrounded by stone walls, high ground and power lines. This scenery features full local autogen trees, animated wind farms on nearby hills and animated horses in the adjacent field. Requires additional files LENS_EZ_SCENERY.ZIP and UKVFR.ZIP to function properly. By Trevor Clark.

Important Note:
For this scenery to function correctly it is necessary to download additional free objects and textures via the internet, please see the installation instructions in this document as to where to find and install them.

Situated on a hill, high above the town of Haworth in the heart of Yorkshire’s stunning ‘Bronte Country’, Oxenhope offers a challenge to a pilot that is rarely found in the United Kingdom. The runways are short and the airfield is surrounded by stone walls, high ground and power lines. Be prepared to abort any take-off or landing you make here, it bites!!!!

This scenery (my fith project) was made using AIRPORT DESIGN EDITOR 9 X and INSTANT SCENERY, plus encouragement and help by scenery guru Tony Meredith. Be sure to visit his site for loads of great freeware scenery for FSX and Horizon VFR GenX.
It is freeware and must not be used or copied for reward or uploaded to file sharing/hosting sites anywhere without my written approval.

Installing this scenery…….
It is essential that you download and install a range of 'Third Party' scenery libraries…..

These downloads need to installed AND activated within FSX (via the settings/Scenery Library/Add Scenery method) before they will appear. See the attached read-me files for more information. To see the stone walls and fences at Oxenhope, please download EZ Scenery by Len Hickman.

FS2004 Lens EZ Scenery Volume 1. A collection of scenery objects. By Len Hickman.

I have also used many items from the great collection of British scenery by the UK VFR group, if you have any of my previous sceneries, they will not be needed as you will already have them installed.

FSX UK VFR Add-ons. A scenery set required by many add-on sceneries, made easy to download and set up for FSX. Some of the libraries don't work with FSX but the majority are okay. Uploaded with permission from Alan Fidler. By Neil Birch.

Step Two…..

Installing Oxenhope add-on scenery itself……

Once you have installed the above files, copy the file included in this zip called ‘Oxenhope’ into your FSX add-on scenery file; it will be something like this ….
C\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addonscenery\Oxenhope, depending on what letter drive you have your FSX installed. C drive is the most common.

You must then activate the scenery by selecting (within the menu of FSX) settings-scenery Library- Add Scenery. A box will be displayed showing your FSX folder. Click on add-on scenery to open this file and then highlight (with your mouse) the folder called ‘Oxenhope’. Whilst high-lighted, click OK. The simulator will take a few minutes to build a new data base and will the return to the menu page.

Once installed the airfield can be found in the ‘Go to’ menu under Oxenhope
Step Three….

Extra Autogen Trees Option….

I have made a set of autogen tress that add a bit of interest and help navigate around the airfield circuit at low level, to improve the performance on more modest PCs, I have made many (but not all) of the airfield trees autogen as well.

To install these trees, place the entire contents of the file called ‘Oxenhope Trees’ into the drive where you keep your Horizon VFR Gen X folder, following the path below…

*F:\VFR-Gen-X-2.0\Volume3\Area2\2.4m Photo\texture

*My scenery is on F drive (it is better if you have the option to install all the Horizon VFR X scenery on a DIFFERENT drive to FSX and your Windows operating system, but not essential.), yours may well be on C:\

Please Note…
If FSX is running, you may need to re-start it to see the trees.

Because of the way autogen is created, the trees in the above file should have little impact on frame rates.

Performance Issues?

The entire scenery I have made represents about 80% of all the buildings around the airfield. At the time of writing in 2009, I doubt if all users will have the hardware to run the full scenery at an acceptable speed.

If you are having problems, I suggest removing the files called ‘extravegitation’ and/or ‘evenmorewalls’ from the Oxenhope/scenery file. These add the eye candy around the airfield and should not affect the look of the airfield unduly.

Each time you add or subtract any of these files, just visit the scenery library via the FSX menu and click ‘OK’; that will allow the library to re-build its database and add or subtract the additional scenery.

You could also delete the file called ‘windfarm’ which places a large wind turbine (animated) on an adjacent hill.

It is better not to do any changes whilst actually having the scenery on screen!

The scenery has not been tested using default scenery, and will not work in any other simulator other than FSX and Horizon VFR GenX Volume 3.
This scenery has not been tested in DX10 so I cannot promise it works!!

Known problems with this release.
This airfield is very difficult to replicate accurately in FSX, Microsoft will not really allow airfields to be anything but flat, in reality, Oxenhope is anything but flat!!! I have tried to make it look as real as possible within that restriction, people who know the area well (like my web host Tony Meredith) will hopefully allow me a large element of ‘artistic licence’ here. The hangar is again an approximation to the real one, which appears to have been made up of scrap tin, from what evidence I have found. I could not find a really good match amongst the available object libraries for FSX.

This scenery was made by studying aerial and mapping photographs and Google Earth, as well as public information on the internet. I have not actually visited the airfield so have interpreted the layout and buildings as best as I can, using the readily available scenery objects for FSX. Please be aware that airfields change, what I have created is a generic version of the field as it appears at sometime over the past 5 years or maybe a few years in the future! A ficticious UNICOM frequency of 123.450 has been added to the scenery.

My other sceneries……
So far I have released four earlier sceneries (as of December 2009), Deanland, Linley Hill, RAF Thorney Island and Rougham.

Future Releases….
Oxenhope is the firth in a planned series of freeware UK airfields for FSX and Horizon VFR GenX scenery all of which are currently missing from the flight simulation world! Currently underway are RAF Tangmere in West Sussex and Hamble airfield in Hampshire.

Thanks to Scruffy Duck for ADE 9X and to my good friend Dave Garwood for the use of his wonderful SWB Landrover models, seen in the middle of the classic show, on airshow day. These will be used a lot in future RAF sceneries.
Thanks to Len Hickman for his walls and fences, the walls really make the scenery look like part of Yorkshire.
Thanks to Tony Meredith for hosting my sceneries on his website.
