Bugfix release for some flooded airports. I did not make them, I just make them available

Updated Layouts (ICAO.btg.gz) for more than 2000 airports:

(based on new airport layouts (12/2015) from http://gateway.x-plane.com/)

I use NickR's terragear scripts: https://gitlab.com/fg-scenery-build-script/fg-scenery-build-script/tree/master

AI ground networks and startup locations

ICAO.groundnet.xml files with AI ground networks(900 airports) and parking locations(7900 airports) http://media.lug-marl.de/flightgear/Airports.tgz

The tools I used: https://github.com/mherweg/d-laser-fgtools

parking and groundnet:

  • aptdat2sqlite.py (read apt.dat write to sqlite )
  • sqlite2xml.py (read from sqlite and create folders and files in Airports folder)

lists of airports with ground networks

animated jetways

I do debugging and documentation of animated jetways. I helped to make them for EDDF and enable more aircraft to use them. There are at least 2 kind of animated jetways in Flightgear which are technically different. Both are made by the same author(skyop).

Hardware

I did build a hardware cockpit panel with EFIS,MCP and radio for FlightGear:

I accept donations. Contact me via Forum:pommesschranke or Wiki if you like to make a donation via Paypal. Making scenery needs a fast PC.
