Turweston Aerodrome, UK – hand-crafted airport
Another handcrafted UK airport was requested. I have spent far too much time working on this one! I think this will be my first and last attempt at a solar farm…but the results are worth it I think. I modeled the control tower building from scratch too.
I Hope You Enjoy It!
Turweston Aerodrome (ICAO: EGBT) located near the village of Turweston, in north Buckinghamshire near the Northamptonshire border. It is a former Royal Air Force Second World War bomber training facility, now a business park and airfield which is home to the Light Aircraft Association.
Originally RAF Turweston, based on 220 acres of land in the northwest corner of Buckinghamshire, just off the A43 road and located 2 nautical miles east of the market town of Brackley. Opened on 23 November 1942 it had three concrete runways and one T1 hangar.
Completely overhauled airport from scratch
Runway and taxiways based on airport charts.
Custom model for control tower, wooden fence and ‘Welcome to Turweston Aerodrome’ sign.
Custom runway, apron, and car park paint markings
Taxiway signs – as close to the real-life ones as I could find references for
THOUSANDS of other hand placed stock scenery objects (damn you solar farm!!)
Fixed local scenery where autogen had failed miserably
Extract the “gobby-turweston” folder to your /Community/ folder.
· The draw distance on the solar panels isn’t very far, which results in the panels dissapearing when you aren’t close enough. I can’t fix this in the SDK unfortunately.
· I can’t make taxiways ‘one-way’, so its not possible to accurately reflect the ‘enter on left / exit on right’ nature of the parking apron.
· There’s no night lighting as the aerodrome isn’t operational at night.
