About This File

The sales blurb for FS2004 announced the inclusion of over 23,000 airfields ... unfortunately a significant number of those consisted of little or nothing more than a runway on a flatten with a rectangular background polygon.

To enable the addition of an amount of lightweight GA AI traffic, without overloading those airfields that were designed with parking spaces and taxi-ways, (and are probably already busy), I herewith include over 140 small sceneries, of mostly default airfields, from NW France, up the English Channel and the North Sea coast through Belgium, the Netherlands and NW Germany to Denmark, all with added taxiways and parking spots, aprons, generic buildings and background polygons as appropriate, to enable AI traffic to be generated without interrupting things at the more major airports.

A few of the French airfields are "new", not included originally with FS2004, and a couple have been updated to suit more recent developments :- for example, LFES "Scaer Guiscriff" is now LFES "Bretagne Atlantique", LFOR "Chartres Champhol" is now LFOR "Chartres Metropole", EHSE "Seppe" is now EHSE "Breda International" and EKVH "Vesthimmerlands" was previously EKVH "Aars".

There's no photo-realism here, just a selection of basic 'generic' buildings, more or less accurately sized and placed to reflect the airfield layout as seen on on-line satellite imagery and aerial photography. These buildings have minimal effect on frame-rates, so are ideal for this kind of job.

The airfields are aligned as well as possible with the roads etc. in UT Europe and the Genesis Europe mesh, but should mostly be fine in a default installation or other configuration.
