EDDK in the scenery objects database

As mentioned above user laserman created a nice custom scenery for EDDK. Some parts of that scenery found their way into the scenery object database and replaced existing generic buildings. So these will also be available for users not aware of the custom scenery. This is a documentation of those objects. The history of the EDDK custom scenery is available at the forum.

Building Model file Remarks
Terminal 1 EDDK-Terminal1.xml Texturing of some parts is still missing. Center of the model is the OSM line "Kaffee-Filter" (218043449), which is object "Vorfeldkontrolle" in the AC3D file.
Terminal 2 EDDK-Terminal2.ac Uses a copy of the Terminal1 texture file. The object location appears to be too far into the grass on apron D, but it complies to its OSM location. The EDDK terrain of apron D apparently is not correct.


Removed objects

  • Two occurences of "EFHK P3". Replaced by new EDDK-Terminal1.
  • Three occurences of "EGPH carpark".Replaced by new EDDK-Terminal1.
