FS9 (FS2004) New KPHX Sky Harbor

Recommended Posts

I am currently nearing the conclusion of a newly (reworked) Phoenix Sky Harbor for FS9 only. 

The new scenery will attempt add some new life to the dated versions available. Re-coloring, new textures, etc. and much better night lighting.

If those within the group with experience would like to beta before release please let me know.

Great news, Mitch; KPHX is the closest thing to a home airport I have (since I never fly out of Tucson; it's less hassle to drive two hours up the road).  I've been using the M1DG version, which is a pretty good depiction of the airport prior to the building of the passenger tram, but an updated version is certainly welcome.  Be happy to help test if you need it.

Thank you and I will be in touch very soon. Airport is done but still trying to figure out where the stock Honeywell and adjacent buildings alongside runway 26 are stored. They look hideous.

Mitch has done a great job with this update of KPHX, and I'd encourage everyone to give it a try once it's uploaded.

I just downloaded and installed the new PHX and it looks great. The night textures are also very good!

I made some quick adjustments on the Afcad. America West en Us Airways were still asigned to the gates so I changed them to American and American Eagle so they are now properly filled with the correct airlines. I also added some new airlines like Volaris so they also are parked at the gate instead on the parking lot in the west. 

It was a fast adjustment so I did not really looked at the proper gates assigments for the other airlines than American. Maybe I will do that later. 

The textures on the Honeywell building are not very good. They look blurry. But on the other hand: I checked GoogleEarth but there is no Honeywell building.

And the Us Airways building at the east is also outdated. It has a blue stripe with “American” on it. 

Thanks for the scenery! I have a new destination!

Thank you. I could never figure out where the Honeywell bgl & bmp were stored or I would have fixed it. 

The US Airways building. I will fix. Do you have a pic of it by chance?

The update looks good, Mitch; the American logo is also around the same corner above the right-hand hangar door on the real building, but I don't think that's any big deal.  The "Honeywell" building is also still there IRL, but it must be buried deep in the stock scenery.

John,

As I've indicated, unless someone directs me to where the Honeywell files are I cannot remove/update etc. etc.

I will see if I can add the American logo to the hangar side. Thanks for the info.
