It is still in testing. I can use it because I wrote it. The interface requires some external computation to convert from decimal fractions of a degree to an integer between 0 and 1200.
This version requires:
silx http://http://www.silx.org/
Python

I would like to use Qt instead of silx eventually, and develop a front end for it.

If you want a file edited, I might be able to help you with that.

I still like this scenery, but I fly into St Barth a lot, and I missed the tower and terminal.
So I tracked it down and included it with the D-ECHO scenery, along with the boats in the bay.

You will receive missing texture messages, but those were there when I got the scenery from D-ECHO.
I'm going to try to track them down also. Edit: I corrected a bunch of them. They are in the World Scenery Pack (giant download).
This does not have all that. Just the parts of it required for this scenery.

Edit: I also modified the parking at St Barth. You can select a seaplane parking ramp for the Twin Otter float version. Lower right corner.
Follow the dirt road to the beach.

I'm now working on Saba (TNCS). I have all the cars and buildings (and the "head guy") at ground level now. I'll upload it when I'm done.

I have a challenge. I can't find the TNCS.dat file that D-ECHO used to create the scenery.
The current file places the runway in the old incorrect position. If you select "runway" as the start position, you are out in the woods.

It should be the one marked with a star on this page: https://gateway.x-plane.com/scenery/page/TNCS

Thank you very much. I'll try it after I land at Martinique.
I think I'm about to go IFR (like most of the morning here). No problem. ILS at Martinique.

Edit: That isn't it. It puts me in the woods.
Except for that, it looks good! If you want to start at TNCS, select "ramp".
