This is a reworkathon of EGHQ Newquay Airport /RAF St Mawgan. 

Back in olden times before we donkey punched grannies who came within 10 metres of us I often used to take the night train up to Gatwick to fly back to Newquay for the pure living hell of it. The seated carriage for the deadbeats who didn't book a bed made for superb pick pocketing too. 

Nothing beats arriving in Newquay with grimy eyes and a greasy chuff knowing you have another 4-5 hours on buses and trains to go to wind up exactly where you started from 16 hours ago. Take it from me. 

I've seen worse in sim airports but this still needed going over big time. Not too far off every single building has been liquidated and replaced or installed where there wasn't one before. I can't help that not too far off every single replacement building is beige. Did Asobo lose a bet? 

On the industrial estate side there were roaming packs of tower blocks so they've all been wiped out and that whole section has been fiddled with too. It has been fenced to within an inch of its life but they couldn't cope with some gradients so they're a bit daffy in places. Other outlying areas have been populated such as the fire training bit. Lighting has been smeared liberally. 

Other than the runway every single ground texture has been binned and replaced with something closer to reality but I did start to lose the plot with that so some are a bit cheesy still. The autogen terminal has been replaced with something much tastier than the real thing. You deserve it.

Lots of diverse things happen here like plane scrappage and museums and there are a few bits and bobs for you to browse in those areas. 

This has a new taxi system. Planes now point the right way on the main apron which was my prime irritant. I tried and failed to change the name back to Newquay. 

Spaces 20-23 on the main apron now have all of the ground services, but 20 and 21 are the ones for you if you're a big un, plus two on the south apron. The correct GA parking has been added on the top right. 

V 1.5

Skips straight from 1.3 to 1.5 cos I can't be bothered to change the setting. 

This fleshes out the Draken Helicopter Academy on one of the southern ramps. I've added some light, more parking spots, ground markings and detail. Any parking spot numbered 100 or above around the airport is helicopter intended. If you take a plane there it might cost you your LIFE. 

Also added is a parking spot at the Air Ambulance site at the runway 30 end. 

A few other burns in here and there have been covered up.

      I think he's talking about Covid and social distancing. We don't like anyone getting close to us anymore, even harmless grannies!

      Because marauding gangs of grannies are dangerous! You may not understand this if you are not British or too young to know about such things.

    I tried this mod for the first time ever yesterday (10 March), just post the latest MSFS update. I seemed to spawn in water with no scenery instead of the gate (Gate 20/21)?

      I've occasionally ended up 5000 miles from where I was intending to start off with other mods in the middle of the ocean. I've no idea why this happens. I'd better give it a test.

      Re-downloaded and tried today. Works no issues, did not even change any settings, clear cache, etc... Thanks for the great upgrade!

    Realised I did not rate this which is terrible of me as I have flown here a lot in the sim. Love it and brings back memories of flying in and out up to London. Great scenery as always from superspud. Agree with Archer374's comment that you need to add the spitfire in the chaps garden 😊 Look forward to your next project!

      The Spitfire is a definite. I'll try to add all the extra models within the next week or so. My next one is Area 51 so if you enjoy a plane model that will be heaving with them. I have eschewed the UFOs though.

    Hi. Thank you very much. Great work!
    Would it be possible to include "Spitfire Corner" on final approach to RWY 30?
    • superspud
      3 month(s) ago
      Sounds like a plan. Just spotted it on the satellite photo. I'll add that to the list.

      Great. Driven by it on holiday twice. Quite a landmark 😊

    Just wanted to:
    1. Thank you for your awwsome work
    2. Tell you ILS works completely fine for me in the latest version (using Navigraph obv. if that makes a difference)

    The only thing i got was awfull stutter when closing in to the airport. Usually i barely drop below 30fps on huge payware airports and here it got below 20. Was like 20 sec. during approach.
    • superspud
      4 month(s) ago
      No idea what's on with the ils. Maybe it wasn't there in the first place. Odd about the stutters. This should be no more demanding than anywhere else and there's nothing custom there . It does happen without a reason in other spots too.
  • CornishCracker

    Thanks for this! I land at this airport a lot. Any chance you can fix the ILS frequencies please? They are missing.
    • superspud
      4 month(s) ago
      Right. This is the original taxi system. I assume ILS went missing when this was replaced. If that's not the case then let me know. - https://www.mediafire.com/file/xqa74tv19k89ort/airport-eghq-newquay-ils.zip/file

      ILS now populates in the latest version. For some reason though, I'm missing the custom marker on this and the EGTE mod in the world map.
    • superspud
      2 month(s) ago
      Ah. Good news. I've never added custom markers to the already existing airports I've done. Funnily enough someone told me it messes with ILS. It must be another change at their end.
    • CornishCracker
      2 month(s) ago
      I just landed and realised I hadn't taken the mod folder out of the download folder when placing it in the community folder. Yeah it doesn't auto populate in the A320NX, but does with the default scenery. Do you know how to fix the ILS? I've seen some videos on YouTube of the SDK.
    • superspud
      2 month(s) ago
      I have never had any luck with ILS - ever, even less so the auto tuning thing. And like I said I haven't touched it. It's completely stock. So for now I don't. The only thing I can think of is replacing the runways but they're certainly in the same place. I could try binning the entire taxi system again so I'll do that in the near future and post a link.

    Super.
    Why not convert and use objects from the many free public object libraries made for X-plane? This would give you even more time to consentrate on the layout work, and the many airports still to be done. You only need to credit the creators (the best from UK) for using their objects.
    • superspud
      4 month(s) ago
      You certainly won't catch me scratch building models so yes I'm going to look into more of what's available out there. I have a draft of this with quite a few models gathered from all over the place already. I'm trying to figure out how many is too many. Maybe there is no such thing.
    • alfme

      You will probably be amazed to find thousands of objects in libraries like NAPS library, CDB-library, RE-library, ruscenery, The-handy-objects-library, ff-library, OpenSceneryX and many more. And there are all kind of objects being published at all times. They are all meant for creative peoples like you who can and like to populate all this terrible AI airports and airfields of (X-plane) MSFS and similar.

    This is absolutely outstanding, and I would like to thank you so much for doing this, and for all the other sceneries you have done. This is truly bringing the UK to life. I'm so happy for this scenery, as it is my home airport.
