Area 51 scenery

Recommended Posts

I downloaded nice Area 51 scenery for FSX from flyawaysimulation.com (3.49MB Skara Scenery).
http://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/15416/fsx-area-51-scenery/


I noticed:
The ILS for RWY 12 has a heading of 315.9 degrees?  ... also the ILS is pointed that way.
So I am wondering if this is supposed to be ILS 30 (not ILS 12)?

Should RWy 32R be the 5500 foot long runway, the one physically on the far right in the JPG?
In other words, should the rwys be 12, 32 and 32R?

Edit: , In other words, should the rwys be 30, 32 and 32R?

When I look at the properties for NDB (ARDB) I get an error screen (using AFX ver 1.10a)?

Yes it is.

You are correct again, except 12 might be considered 30 at that end.

 

When I look at the properties for NDB (ARDB) I get an error screen (using AFX ver 1.10a)?

Given the other issues, not a surprise, is it?

 

Can't help you with this one though. I use ADE.

Joe

Joe,

 

Thanks for verifying the problem areas.

 

I looked and I found ADE on my PC.

I did a screenshot of the author's file names and my copy of ADE (version). Maybe it is not too up date for this work.

I tried to Open his AR51 scenery using my ADE (open airport) did not see anything in the folder.

I am not that used to ADE .. maybe there is another way to open the AR51.

Somehow I need to edit the file ..... I assume if it is in error I could edit my copy of it.

 

Edit:

"You are correct again, except 12 might be considered 30 at that end."

Yes, you are correct.

I meant 30, 32 32R ....

Your ADE will work, it is not up to date.

 

You want to "Open airport from BGL" and select AR51_ADEX_SKARA SCENERY.BGL

 

Don't worry about the OBJ file, for what you are wanting to do you should not need to edit it.

 

regards,

Joe

Joe,

 

I got new ADE version 1.55 (for FS9/FSX/P3D) installed.

 

It did open the BGL AR51 file ok.

 

Now I will have to do some reading of the pdf files to learn how to correct the problem areas and then resave the ADE bgl file.
