I’ve been very busy and not able to spend a lot of time on the website or in the sim, but one of the projects I did take on was creating X-Plane scenery for KSBD, San Bernardino. KSBD was the original default airport in X-Plane in the old days, it’s a big field, and it’s also a common spot for PilotEdge users (and is in one of the CAT rating flights). Yet, for some reason I can’t quite grasp, there is no default 3D scenery for it on the X-Plane Gateway. So I decided to make some, working on it here and there over the past week or two during conference calls and when I’ve had free moments. I’ve uploaded it to the Gateway, but in the meantime I have posted it to the .Org as well. You may find it here.
I designed the scenery using only default objects in hopes that it becomes part of a future X-Plane release. Given the field’s complexity this really forced me to learn a lot of new tricks in WED, and I really like the results. For some reason X-Plane 10 users were getting an error so I’ve posted two versions. I hope you like it, and that it might prompt some readers to take on some larger fields using WED.
My next project is KVNY Van Nuys, and here are some screen shots of KSBD.
