NOLF Coupeville is here

Ok guys,
At last, the Coupeville photo realistic scenery is ready to test. If you have any other KNRA versions (either mine or someone else's) installed, please remove (or disable) them first. I have also revoked my FCLP vol.3 pack, based on the old-style Coupeville scenery. Maybe I'll create a new one for my and Brandon's new photo realistic sceneries...
As my first photo scenery, NALF Fentress, this new scenery features night and seasonal textures, two authentic LSO shacks, two IFLOLS set to 3.75 degrees and two carrier boxes with night lighting.

Hope you will enjoy this new Coupeville scenery. Feel free to report any bugs or glitches, as well as suggestions or criticism...

NOLF Coupeville reborn again

Well, guys...
After releasing my first photo scenery, NALF Fentress, I couldn't resist the temptation of making the KNRA scenery photo realistic too. So it is reborn once again, now as a photo realistic scenery. Here are some WIP screenshots:

When applying satellite images, another FSX glitch was revealed - the default WN40 Coupeville Airpark was misplaced and misaligned, just like the default KNRA field was. Had to fix that too:
The right position of WN40 field

Generally, I'm happy with this new look of the scenery. I just have to tweak seasonal textures and vegetation. It's a matter of a few days... ;-)

NOLF Choctaw issue solved

I'm sorry I've missed a BGL file which was a part of Brandon's original scenery pack. The lack of this file causes the runway elevation issues. To solve this problem just re-download the Choctaw scenery and unzip it to the main FSX folder (overwriting existing files) or just unzip the missing knfj_adex_bt_alt.bgl to the FSX Scenery/World/Scenery folder.

vLSO beta

Yet another beta... ))) This time just two minor bugs fixed - with the Delete button and with the 'Choose a runway' menu option. This beta is compatible with all previous 0.7.* versions.

Two more FCLP sceneries

At last, two beautiful photo realistic sceneries made by Brandon Thetford became vLSO compatible - KNFJ NOLF Choctaw and KNJW NALF Joe Williams. Now you can enjoy day and night FCLPs at these locations. These two are modified versions of Brandon's original well known sceneries; this means that if you have the original sceneries installed, you should disable them (or remove) prior to installing these new sceneries. The installation procedure is pretty simple:
  1. Unzip to the FSX/Addon Scenery folder.
  2. In FSX go to World - Scenery Library
  3. Click 'Add Area'
  4. Select the 'KNFJ_FCLP' or 'KNJW_FCLP' scenery from the 'Addon Scenery' folder.
  5. Click OK.

 Happy landings!

PS. Both sceneries feature two carrier boxes with night lighting and two Mk14 IFLOLS.
