EDFZ, Mainz Finthen Airport

Postby DeltaSVEN » Tue Sep 06, 2016 5:34 pm

Hey there everyone,

actually want to make some advertisement for my hometown airport EDFZ!
I am a glider pilot there currently and tried to rebuilt the field as realistic as possible for FG.
While being not familiar with programs like Blender, Sketchup, etc. I had to use given objects from the database, but there are many cool hangars, props and other stuff that perfectly fit to EDFZ. That keeps the custom scenery small.
=================
DOWNLOAD: https://github.com/D-Sven/EDFZ-custom-scenery
=================

Location: South west germany - 15 miles from Frankfurt and connected to the river Rhein - hub for hobby-pilots and education flights, also sightseeing tours over the city are available

And there are some more things to know about the field:
    Two parallel runways: 26/08 (asphalt, 1000x28m) used for motorplanes, private jets, heli-, and gyrocopters
    And 08R/26L (grass, 1000x80m) mostly used for us gliders, and also motorised traffic when the asphalt runway is too busy
    Because EDDF is only ~13nm to the east, the airspace Charlie above 830m AGL / 3500 ft MSL is reserved for EDDF's traffic
    -> Airbusses and Boeings usually pass the airport at 4000-5000ft MSL (exept those guided by jomo) :lol:
    Traffic patterns are usually flown south (left handed from 26, right handed from 08)

Note: please use the included parking positions, don't spawn in MP on one of the runways
(go: Menu -> Location -> Select Airport -> search for EDFZ -> Airport Map -> left bottom copy the name of the position and press enter -> press go to aiport)

Credits: 1.Thanks to d-laser for preparing the layout and taxiways; looks awesome.
2. D-3m gave a very helpful critic to my Airport, thank you for that (danke!).

Have fun with the airport, also useful for visal navigation to Frankfurt's 07s!

Thank you,

(D-) Sven

Sven, your scenery is amazing! It looks awesome! ;)
If you want and you could help me by taking some pictures, I can model the specific buildings/hangars etc in blender :D

Even if the layout may not be the good one, please don't forget to push the data to the scenery database !

Okay, I'll add it now :D
Sven shall I also add your additions? or do you want?
And Sven, if you add your additions yourself, please ONLY ADD THE OBJECTS YOU PLACED, because I've already added the ones I placed so there are no doubles ;)

Sorry for my delay, but school has become a inferno for me now and I am retiring for some days/weeks from FG.
As your tower building looks amazing, really :shock: , like the real one I have my dinner on its terrace every evening after flying around all day 8) . I want to give you full access to the repo on github and something like a living will for it, so you can easily continue your great work!
Is this possible? How can I do that?

Cheers, Sven

Hey Sven,
no problem I'm just as active now because school starts just in a few days ;)
Though I don't really understand what you mean by "living will", you could give me push access, so I can contribute to the repository directly instead of going the way of Pull Requests, by going on your repo, then on Settings and under "Collaborators" you can "Add collaborators", which should do the trick ;)

Done Echo!

You have full access now.
P.S.: "living will" is translated as something like a "(german) Patientenverfügung", the formular that everyone hates...
For now have a great takeoff from vacation and a smooth landing in the class room!
Enjoy the last days and again: Unbelievable good work on the tower building! You're a wizard!

UPDATE: This custom scenery now contains an AI-Towplane scenario!

Simply wait for the AI-Plane to arrive, hook in and fly away!
Detailed docu on how to install and activate can be found in the README and in a Tutorial.pdf
Inspired and improved by HerbyW!

Have fun!

UPDATE: My hometown airport is up to date again :D :

I reworked the glider scenarios from 2017 (aerotow/thermals) and wrote detailed documentation to use them properly.
Deleted some faulty objects and placed new ones, cleaning up errors caused by this scenery.
Fixed the runway threshold positions.

Soon:
Aerotow-scenarios from 08R, more thermals
More osm2city buildings/streets in the area

Looking forward to your questions and bug reports. Have fun!

Sven

Latest efforts April 2020:

    New terrain from D-ECHO's Central Europe CS
    Object cleanup and adjustment
    New fences using fencemaker again
    Airport signs for better orientation
    Various new buildings for bordering village

I will update the glider aerotow-scenario to fit the new airport layout.
Please note that you need the latest database of shared models to fully enjoy this scenery!

This is amazing. Will this end into main fg scenery?

Unfortunately, at least the terrain won't, as in-continent custom scenery is not added to terrasync (the main scenery), because there are seams at the tile boundaries between the custom and the main scenery
