• 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.

The idea of this thread is that you can use it to announce that you are working on a scenery. Just to let other developers know that an airport, city or region is in development. That way hopefully we won't work on the same addons without knowing it.

If you want to show the work in progress of your scenery, please create a separate thread in the showroom forum for it. Do not use this thread to post a lot of screenshots.
 
Happy New Year everyone!!!

Started in late 2021, I've been able to resurrect it in late 2023n after I've been able to achieve a first Release with "MNLP".

Hello everyone!

Finally I'm feeling confident to go ahead and officially admit that I have spent way more time than what would be consider a "sane amount" creating my very first (and probably only) project for MSFS. For 10 years, I've been wanting to give my local airfield the representation it deserves, since it's the womb of my entire aviation career. So here we go...

Freeware for EDKB Bonn-Hangelar, Germany.

Bonn-Hangelar Airfield, situated in the picturesque region of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, has a rich history dating back to the early 20th century. Originally established in 1913 as a military airfield, it played a significant role during both World Wars, serving as a strategic hub for German aviation. Following World War II, the airfield underwent extensive reconstruction and was repurposed for civilian use, becoming a vital center for general aviation and flight training. Throughout its history, Bonn-Hangelar Airfield has evolved into a bustling aviation facility, fostering a vibrant community of pilots, enthusiasts, and aviation professionals. Today, it continues to serve as a key landmark in the region, offering a gateway to the skies for both recreational and commercial aviation pursuits.

Features for the project will (eventually) include:
- Fully modelled airside & landisde of the civilian part of the airfield
- Fully modelled airside of the federal police apron, including animated gate entry point
- Dynamic changing of signs and other stuff by environmental factors
- Custom night lighting
- Custom animations such as windsocks etc.
- Entirely custom ground texture works
- Custom (removable) static aircraft
...and more.

I've placed the first cube for this project in Blender almost exactly 2 years ago not knowing anything about scenery design in MSFS. But after reading what felt like 10k posts in here and watching a lifetime worth of SDK videos, I felt the urge to try. And I don't regret it at all [At this point I'd like to thank the whole community, but especially Christian Bahr and the legend himself manu-design for their fantastic input). After letting it sit there for the entirety of 2023 (personal reasons), I picked it back up in January. Now I am hoping that the sources for material and R&D for the area of the German Federal Police will hold up to their word and help me out gathering the necessary pictures to complete that side of the airfield, too.

Here are a few shots - more and info to come soon at: scenery.hangar8.org
