9th September, LER-155

12 Aug 2017 14:21 - 07 Sep 2017 19:06 #35059 by Warty
LER-155 is a Restricted Area for aviation in the Sierra Nevada National Park, southern Spain.

Overflying is permanently prohibited (from FL130 to ground level) except for state aircraft and flights cleared by the National Park authority for the conservation of the Park. Basically, that's mostly firefighters, air ambulances, Police and the Air Force. By a stroke of luck, the Spanish Air Force helicopter school is situated just to the west of LER-155 at Armilla (LEGA).


Timing: Meet up at 20:00 BST (UK time) at Armilla Air Base (LEGA) for two hours of flying in the mountains. The first hour will be a leisurely run through of the circuit, flying low down in the valleys. After a break back at Armilla, we will then do it faster and even lower! Bring a HELICOPTER that can maintain a cruise speed of 120kt or more.

Helicopter list so far: Gazelle (Warty)

Route: see: HERE
There is a Route Manager /FlightPlan file in the distribution folder ( LER-155_flightplan.xml )

Sim Conditions: We will be using live weather (unless it's really dreadful) and a dawn start-up, 0600 UTC, 0800 local Spanish time:
--start-date-gmt=2017:09:09:06:00:00

Comms will be on TeamSpeak ONLY, see: www.fguk.eu/index.php/2013-09-03-13-01-0...peak3-server-details

If you don't sort your scenery out before the FlightNight then expect to be disappointed, lost, confused or maybe even all three :blush:

Draft of the custom scenery, with signposts & flags, is available at the download area


The ENTIRE FOLDER 'w010n30' needs to go into the Objects folder where you keep your EGOD scenery,

EGOD/
. . . . . . . Objects/
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . w010n30

for example:

$FGROOT/Scenery/EGOD/Objects/w010n30/

Go HERE if you don't already have the EGOD scenery. There is also a Forum topic EGOD - new layout?

It should also be possible to put this folder into any other Objects folder of another custom scenery location that you have assigned. That's entirely up to you to experiment with :o) If you are not sure of what you are doing here, then the above method is probably best for you.

Messing with the main Scenery folder or with the TerraMaster or TerraSync assigned folders is also best avoided. If you don't know why this is so then don't even think about doing it!


When (if ??) you manage to get it running, take off from Armilla (LEGA) runway 36 heading north until you reach the first river. Follow the signs all the way round. If you stay low enough to see the signs and stay in the river-valley you are in at the time, until a sign says otherwise, you should make it all the way round.

The first draft of the custom scenery - w010n30 - is available for testing at the download area

If you manage to get it running, take off from Armilla (LEGA) runway 36 heading north until you reach the first river. Follow the signs all the way round. If you stay low enough to see the signs and stay in the river-valley you are in at the time, until a sign says otherwise, you should make it all the way round :woohoo:

I have moved what I have available so far into the download area at the FGUK public Google Drive.




Needs some vegetation next, I reckon.

Timi, you may have noticed that most of the models contained in this package only have one single texture file which means they should be easier to convert to a .obj file B)

Train and bridge, obviously not as they rely on FG animations anyway.

I've never seen it on FG before, either!

It was inspired by a comment that Neilsen made about not being able to get his "rescue-ees" (is that even a word?) to wave at the rescuers and I figured there must be a way to animate in a kind of flip-book way.

Here's one for good laughs from X-Plane 10. Otherwise an awesome scenery
but I guess they didn't have chopper pilots in mind when animating people.
