P3D v4 Simmershome Cyprus Airports

#1
The year 2018 is coming, time to look into my plans.

2018 will be all about Cyprus. I intend to realize all the airports there and thus for the first time to provide a complete Cyprus in P3D 4 as freeware. I have the project in mind for some time.

The airports in turn:
Overview map:



Larnarca

The airport is located in the southeast of Cyprus and is served internationally.

The airport was from Aerosoft for the FSX. A statement, whether this comes in P3D v4 I do not know. In this case, I build it exceptionally but anyway, because this freeware project should be complete.

Target group Airliner

Paphos

The airport is located in the southwest of the island and is served internationally.

This airport does not exist yet and will be fully expanded for the first time in P3D v4.

Target group Airliner


RAF Akrotiri

A complete implementation is not known to me.

In the south of Cyprus lies the Akrotiri peninsula, which is the British exclave. There is the same airport of the RAF and is used as an airbase exclusively military.

Target group Military

Lakatamia

An implementation is not known to me yet.

The airport is south of Nicosia and was Airbase. The runway is removed except for a remaining piece of 550 m. I will implement it as a "bush airfield".

Target group bush pilots


Gecitcale

An implementation is not known to me yet.

The regional airport is located in the northeast of the Turkish part of Cyprus and is used for military and civilian purposes.

Target group Airliner and Tuboprop

Ercan

This airport is not available in the simulator as a selection.

It was built in the Turkish north of the island northeast of Nicosia as a "substitute airport" and is internationally controversial. The flights are probably only about Turkey.

Target group Ailiner, turboprop

In which order I build and publish the airports is not fixed yet. Also no concrete date. But for all there are the complete aerial photos including mesh, Landclass and Waterclass



To be seen in the gallery on my website

Update :

The first Airport will be Paphos LCPH

For the first time I will build a complete airport with 7cm / px resolution. The aerial photos were elaborately edited and optimized so that there are no 2 GB ... no 1 GB ... but only 500 MB. They already have seasons, night image and Auto LOD maximum LOD 19 at the setting 7cm in the sim. The result can be seen loosely and fits almost perfectly in FTX Open LC / GEP3D. Since Open LC has the same color as FTX Global, the latter should fit.

Nice work on Paphos, the greenest part of the island! If you need any photos of Larnaca let me know. I live 5 minutes from the fence. I will also be in Paphos in ~1 month from now in case you want supplementary reference.
