Australian Airport Package


The focus of this package and project is to populate as many Australian airports, big or small, with scenery objects - with a desire of bringing life to this beautiful country within FlightGear Flight Simulator. This package requires the Australian Regional Materials and Australian Scenery Package available below (with thanks to frtps!) This package is currently incompatible with merspieler's OSM2City for Sydney.

This now includes our version of Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport (YSSY) - though all three terminals are complete, much of the airport is still in development. As time progresses, updates will be released as part of this package.

Current release is v0.2 from 21/02/2020

Australian Scenery PRoject

Australian Regional Materials

The Australian Regional Materials created by frtps are required for the above scenery to display correctly, as they contain custom textures and texture definitions. Create a backup copy of your materials.xml located in FGDATA/Materials/regions prior to installation!

From the downloaded archive move the folders within the textures folder to the FGDATA/Textures directory. Then copy the files within the regions folder to FGDATA/Materials/regions.
