#Real-Life United Kingdom

This is an upgrade of EGNS Ronaldsway Airport on the Isle of Man. 

If you haven't been here you jolly well should. Three things I very much enjoy are road racing, rallying and cutting that pesky tax bill. This place has all three in spades.

This wasn't tooo bad compared to other stock airports but I still felt like interfering with it. It was a wrench killing off the magnificant golden structure to the right of the terminal that looked like something Prince would've lived in, or emerged from on stage, but progress demanded it. 

All the ground textures and paint have been binned and replaced. The correct taxi system with taxiways and parking spaces has been installed. Light has been smeared all over. Outlying areas such as car parks, the fire station section and weird stretches of waste ground have been filled out. The airport approach has had some rock embedded in it. 

A particular highlight is the custom terminal designed by Ted Andrews. You may thank Skell300  https://flightsim.to/profile/skell300 for finding it, refining it and doing the textures to work in this. It definitely ties it up very nicely. Hopefully more custom buildings will pop along. 

One thing I couldn't solve is this area's fondness for turning luminous green. It's been like that for a long time so go hassle Asobo rather than me. 

V 1.2

Sorts out the flickering terminal largely and improves a few of its textures. Also added a flatten to the airport to try and sort out its badly behaved terrain. Fingers crossed, eh.

    Sorts out the flickering terminal.

    Hopefully deals with the terrain freaking out and leaving everything floating in the air.

  • Version 1.1 February 18, 2021

    Filled out surrounding roads.

    Replaced the terminal with a slightly different one with better walkways.

    Would love to see Ronaldsway's tower, something about it 😊

      I've started some preliminary fiddling with that. The autogen towers have slowly morphed into unfortunate birthday cakes over time. It's not a great look.

      It would be awesome to see it, its perfectly sized for ronaldsway

    Superb job as always, however I'm getting sort of faded pink patches on and off over the fields in the area of the IOM NDB (this in addition to the luminous green patches which you've already mentioned).

      The pink thing might be a separate issue that I'm getting at several airports. I have zero idea how to cure that. For me at least it started after world update 3.

      It's texture related but none of my experiments have changed it. However mine are always extremely bright pink so maybe yours is a new problem.

      Good luck with any further experiments.

    I hope you don't mind, but I've featured this on my youtube channel (VR Flight Sim Guy). Thankyou for all you do for the community!)

      The more the merrier of course. I'll look forward to checking it out. I might sue you anyway just because I have tooth ache. Let's hope it goes away.

    Hi Great scenery but there are a lot of buildings, fuel trucks and odd bits floating off the ground about 20 feet plus. Great otherwise keep them comming.

      I don't recall looking at this since the UK update so it sounds like something has happened, but I'll bet it's still green. I'll have a sniff around.

    Very Nice indeed. Only the windows/glass of the terminal building are a little bit strange. Special when you arrive in bad gray weather.
    • superspud

      Yes. It's conflicting faces in the model. I have a copy of it and will try to rework it in the next few days.

      Oh, that will be great!

    Hi superspud. I also get a CTD flying to EGNS. It actually happened twice en route from the same airport. It seems to be caused by a conflict between two sceneries because it didn’t happened when I departed from another airport. FinPark suggestion would probably solve this problem. Anyway, great work. Ciao

      I've been waiting for the new SDK to update this otherwise this would've been a couple of weeks ago. Shall get on to it when it's here.
  • FinPark

    Hi, like your sceneries much, but it contains modellib.bgl which conflicts as per Asobo's recommendations and can cause Crashes to Desktop. See the section here on CTD's being caused by scenery and how to fix it. Could you fix it please? https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery
    • superspud

      I am aware of this but I read it as a normally named modelLib only being a problem when it is in the standard unchanged folder structure. That's something I always change. I'll do some reading.

      Hi, i don't want to annoy you. I just fly a route over the Kingdom and got a CTD. So i've checked the the folders and found the modellib.bgl. Sorry. Like i've said: i like your Airports much.
    • superspud

      It's not annoying but I thought this was immune to this problem because of the unique folder structure. I will see if there's a proper answer about this but if it's a simple thing to do I'll change the file name too.

    Extracting the folder into the location ("C:\Users\44785\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community\airport-egns-isleofman-superspud_GpR2q\airport-egns-isleofman-superspud\scenery\modiom\TEXTURE"😉 I get the error (with 1 file) of file path too long.

    TERMINAL3___TRANSLUCENT_GLASS_SKY_REFLECTION_1.PNG.DDS.json

    Every other file is fine. Any chance of shortening the filenames?
    • superspud

      If I remember rightly that isn't the actual file name that's the problem. Windows as standard handles file names up to 260 characters long just fine. I can't actually remember what the problem was but I have had it before. Let me trawl my mind and I'll try to get back to you. But I'll ask the modeller to reduce the file names too just in case.
    • WilliamStrachan

      Ah no I see what's happened, as I extracted the folder it created a new folder with a long name. Extracting by clicking-dragging out of the zip worked. PEBKAC!

      I won't see this for a while I just departed this airfield at the start of my last leg on a flight so I'm not expecting to return there for a while. Doh!

    Hi this looks great and im just about to download it, I work in Ronldsway ATC so if I can help with any photos or info please let me know.
    • superspud

      Superb. There are a fair few things I can't quite figure out from the photos out there. And there are no doubt some massive howlers you'll pick up on that I'm blithely unaware of. I'll PM you. Thanks.
