Scenery Hopedale Industrial Park airport (1B6), Massachusetts (MA), v1.0. Featuring a 3173 foot runway in a tight location in the middle of an industrial park in a tiny town. Designed for use with FSX default scenery, so no additional object libraries needed. Also adds some helpful nearby VFR landmarks and secondary roads to the towns of Milford and Hopedale. By JPS.
Make sure FSX is not running.

This is an improved version of the stock 1B6 airport in Hopedale, Massachusetts, USA. I added taxiway, aprons, 4 parking spots to start from, missing secondary roads and nearby key buildings to more closely match real life. I moved the fuel depot to its real world location, although I'm told in real life it is no longer in service, but I left it in functioning order just in case. Also added some static vehicles, airport objects, etc., to give the area some signs of life. Added some key VFR landmarks such as Rosenfeld Concrete to the immediate West of the runway, Draper Mill where many of the action scenes in the 2009 Bruce Willis movie "Surrogates" were filmed, many of the buildings in the surrounding industrial park, various things in all directions which can aid in finding your way around in low and slow VFR. Made the downtown centers of Milford and Hopedale a bit more realistic. All of this, or course, if you set your "Scenery Complexity" slider to Very Dense or Extremely Dense. The trees along the runway will not look right in winter; many of them will still be green in winter because FSX does not properly adjust the appearance of trees in addon scenery to the season you choose to fly in.
I run stock FSX +Acceleration without any replacement meshes or scenery addon products. All objects are stock FSX so no additional object libraries are needed. However, this also prevents us from being totally accurate regarding the appearance of buildings because we can only pick from what's included in FSX. Some appear very similar to their real life counterparts, the rest merely closely approximate the size, shape, style and position or the real world objects.
Can I use this airport if I no longer use the stock FSX scenery?
You can install it, as above, and it will "function"; I can't imagine it causing anyone's FSX to crash considering it is made with all native FSX objects. However, if you are using a product like Ultimate Terrain, or similar, which adds secondary roads, changes land class, or adds landmark buildings, you might see some local duplication with what I have added to this 1B6 scenery. Whether or not it will appear to be visually annoying to you I cannot predict, as I have no such products to compare to. Depending on which replacement scenery product(s) you use, your mileage will certainly vary compared with other people's experience. You can always delete the 3 files I listed above and all will become right with your world once again.
All work done with ScruffyDuck's Airport Design Editor FSX Edition (ADEX) 1.47.07 and Flight1's Instant Scenery 2. My updates are based on Google Earth, reliable photographic resources and 2010 ground observations.
