• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Isafjordur Airport (BIIS) - very nice!

Some RW teaser:

FTX is shortly releasing a nice freeware scenery (including vector landclass, autogen, etc...). Maybe you could make sure that your scenery blends nicely into this freeware scenery!

thanks.

btw: here you can find the official charts for BIIS, you can see where powerlines run and where flashing beacons are placed to assist the pilots (especially for takeoff, see page 9)

Thanks a lot, that chart is amazingly very helpful although I am having difficulty sorting english out of it, but thanks a lot for pointing that out.

It would be really nice if you could point me to some landmarks around the area, any special suggestions on what could be eye candy. Also the pictures of the airport buildings and the landmarks would be helpful.

Currently working on the airport ground, going to be working on a new method I learned by watching an ORBX scenery video on youtube ;)

Unfortunately i do not really have any more material on BIIS (im living in germany, ;) ). You can check for pictures on airliners.net and jetphotos.net, but not too many there as well. Maybe via google picture search....

Looking forward to the project and let me know if you need a beta tester.... :cool:

I think this is it. A few more objects to add and our airport is ready.

These are according to the pictures I obtained from the internet. If anybody thinks that something is wrong please let me know,

Airport during winter season,

JUst a quick question from somebody who has no idea about scenery design. Would it be possible to have some snow on the apron and runway during hard winter? Especially with such a small airport and those harsh weather conditions it would be a really nice gimmick!

Hi, FTX is about to release their free iceland scenery - a demo to show their Global, Vector and OpenLC Version in combination. I'm sure it will be very nice and since it is free a lot of people will use it. Maybe you can make sure that your scenery blends in nicely....

(right now only the manual cna be downloaded, but the scenery should follow any day now)

Looking forward to it!

chris
