Airport LSGN Neuchatel-Colombier Update V1.1 coming soon

  • Hi,


    The airport has just been released on Flight-Sim.org.



    It's my first attempt to create an airport with AC3D - The airport-mesh:



    Airport created by chrispriv, 2019 (with AC3D),
    using airport-buildings from vf-air.com (reference to the original FSX-scenery http://www.vf-air.com/index.htm) --> hot stuff for simmers on FSX and P3D!
    *** Freeware (only for personal and non-commercial use) ***


    Enjoy! :)


    Christophe

  • Great ! thank you so much.


    BTW I started updating my LSGY Yverdon-les-Bains with our brand new large fuel station. Adding new taxiways isn't so easy in 3DSMax, lot of trial and error ahead.

    Many trees have also been cut in the pattern, increasing safety.


    I'll release the airport as soon as updated.


    Cheers

    Antoine

  • Well, didn’t want to raise too high expectations, I’ll be off for vacations until end of August. Initial tests with mesh grid cutting along new taxiways background in 3DSmax creates unwanted results.

    I’ll have to try further until I find a successful way to doing it...

    3DSmax is really not user-friendly for mesh creating...


    Cheers

  • Many thanks for your great feedback!


    This gives me the motivation, to implement some more small or middle airports.


    First steps with AC3D are very hard, making a lot of mistakes, producing a) nothing. b) large holes in the ground or c) just small holes in the ground:


    Converting single-objects on a non-flat mesh with more than one texture may look like this (even making a flat airport-ground, the mesh remains not flat):


    After this first "making of LSGN", I think I got it now, more or less! ;)


    So, I hope to do my next upload till begin of September.


    First, I also will be on holiday for the next two weeks.

    @Trespassers: I’m looking forward for your update of LSGY Yverdon! If it doesn’t work with 3DSMax, maybe it can be done using AC3D . Good Luck!


    Regards,

    Christophe

  • Hello everybody,


    An update of LSGN V1.1 is in progress. It will also include a high-density scenery of the city of Neuchatel and surroundings.


    I added buildings of the town, highways and roads, car-traffic and -parking, harbours with ships and much more …




    It also will work well together with the scenery of Swiss Refineries Neuchâtel-Colombier from TomSimMuc (including my airport of LSGB Bex) - refineries in sight!


    I have been using for the first time ObjectGen V0.7 form lenidcamper ; it's great - thx a lot!


    Cultivation "Autogen Switzerland West" from drassaud has already been adapted and will also be included in my upload.


    Comming soon … ;)


    Regards,

    Christophe

    Changed the title of the thread from “Airport LSGN Neuchatel-Colombier available on Flight-Sim.org” to “Airport LSGN Neuchatel-Colombier Update V1.1 coming soon”.
  • *** Update V1.10 now available on fligth-sim.org ***

    Scenery of Neuchâtel-town added, including additional airport-objects, buildings of town, traffic, ports, ships, powerlines, railways and add. trees etc.


    It works with IPACS’s DLC for Switzerland together with the Swiss cultivation West from drassaud (--> Update available V1.04).

    Also adapted to work together with Airport Bex with Neuchatel and Collombey Refineries V1.4 from TomSimMuc & chrispriv .


    It is now possible to fly directly from LSGN Neuchatel along the lake and past the city to the Refineries of Colombier!




    Special thanks also to TomSimMuc for his support and his piers and also to Tomfa for editing the cultivation of Neuchâtel.

    Enjoy!

  • ''FOR THE LITTLE STORY''


    Once upon a time, Switzerland, before and after!


    About a year ago, this city of Neuchâtel was deserted, no buildings, like many others in Switzerland,...except some small villages that IPACS has produced.


    Then comes this magnificent autogen developed by Didier drassaud Then comes suddenly Switzerland take a new life with this implantation of buildings, and with a new airport (LSGC) La Chaux-de-Fonds! Without forgetting the Altisurfaces in the Alps!


    Then comes with time, creating two beautiful refineries Cressier and Collombey, create very generously by Thomas TomSimMuc


    Then Krzysztof krzysk with this superb complement of Swiss VFR (Tower, Bridges, Dams ...)


    Just recently, a splendid aerodrome (LSGY) Yverdon-les-Bains created by Antoine Trespassers


    And now Christophe chrispriv Always full of new ideas !!!

    Beautiful aerodromes Neuchâtel-Colombier (LSGN), Bex (LSGB) Sion (LSGS) and Altiport Croix de cœur and Savoleyres ...


    Then one day, he returns to my hometown ''Neuchâtel'' to give him even more life with this new implantation of objects in 3D!


    Wow !!! What can we say more ... Absolutely magical and beautiful !!!


    THANK YOU Christophe and to you all, PRIVATE developers, who also worked in the background, and to have provided all this tools, order to achieve all these complements to adapt them to the various scenes, to ultimately get a result of masterpiece, and share it with the whole community. Thanks!


    This little Switzerland, which is becoming more and more beautiful!:love:

  • Christophe,


    How about your team doing similar makeover for your LFLJ Courchevel airport? That might be a dazzling area for this type of treatment. You gotta love that super short runway with the 18 deg grade. Not too many buildings, but a gorgeous scenic area.


    Just a thought. I was looking at the MFS 2020 images of Courchevel and got the idea that your team could probably do something similar as we wait.
