Tauranga Airport with working AI Traffic/FSLTL Traffic
Donations are welcome. A lot of effort goes into these. Hope you enjoy my mods - Mark.
Note your sim must be up to date with all world updates installed. You do not need any photogrammetry installed, just the base world updates as I borrow scenery from those resources. I also recommend to install the UK2000 Scenery Library which is free in the Marketplace and used by many devs, including my work.
If, like me, you are one of the many downloaders of an earlier mod for this airport, one with amazing scenery but with broken AI Traffic, look no further! The author of that mod does not appear to be active anymore, so I got to work creating an altogether new replacement for us all.
Faithful as I can be to the actual RL scenery, I have lovingly created this airfield from scratch, adding all the taxiways, taxi signs, a new terminal and control tower, car parks, the picnic area, the roundabout and lots of eye candy on the apron.
V 2.0.1 ( 11 Jan 24 )
After over 100 hours using the SDK I am revisiting earlier work to apply new techniques and skills I have learned and wished I knew earlier. All of my previous airfields are getting attention, mainly to texturing of the ground and aprons, lines and lighting, and other improvements and corrections.
See change log for details.
V 2.2 ( 24 Jan 24)
Fixed and removed the random MSFS cars in all of the carparks.
Added centre lines to the roads.
Made some other final corrections and additions.
Checked that the AI was still working properly.
V 2.3 ( 10 Feb 24 )
Added the airport to the MSFS World Map GUI for visibilty and easier selection.
Added a boundary fence to the entire airfield.
Added a helipad start for you chopper pilots.
That is definitely the last update for this airfield.
Don't forget to reload your Little Navmap scenery library now and then as good housekeeping practice in order to keep your new airfields accurately portrayed within it. This way all your new taxiway designations are updated among other things.
LNM automatically searches through your community folder during the process which runs in the background so you can keep simming.
From the menu bar of LNM: Scenery Library | Load Scenery Library | press Load. When finished, press Use Database.
Unzip and drop into your Community folder. Overwrite if already exists.
