Eghq – Newquay Airport/ ST Mawgan AB – Upgrade for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

This is a reworkathon of EGHQ Newquay Airport /RAF St Mawgan.

Back in olden times before we donkey punched grannies who came within 10 metres of us I often used to take the night train up to Gatwick to fly back to Newquay for the pure living hell of it. The seated carriage for the deadbeats who didn’t book a bed made for superb pick pocketing too.

Nothing beats arriving in Newquay with grimy eyes and a greasy chuff knowing you have another 4-5 hours on buses and trains to go to wind up exactly where you started from 16 hours ago. Take it from me.

I’ve seen worse in sim airports but this still needed going over big time. In the process so much of this has been changed I know it so intimately I’m confident I could be deposited blindfolded at the entrance and fly one of them BA 747s to freedom with it still on.

Not too far off every single building has been liquidated and replaced or installed where there wasn’t one before. I can’t help that not too far off every single replacement building is beige. Did Asobo lose a bet?

On the industrial estate side there were roaming packs of tower blocks so they’ve all been wiped out and that whole section has been fiddled with too. It has been fenced to within an inch of its life but they couldn’t cope with some gradients so they’re a bit daffy in places. Other outlying areas have been populated such as the fire training bit. Lighting has been smeared liberally.

Other than the runway every single ground texture has been binned and replaced with something closer to reality but I did start to lose the plot with that so some are a bit cheesy still. The autogen terminal has been replaced with something much tastier than the real thing. You deserve it.

Lots of diverse things happen here like plane scrappage and museums. Unfortunately I don’t have many items to play with so you’ll have to use your imagination with much of it.

This is entirely cosmetic right now. I’d like to redo the taxiways purely to get the planes to point in the right direction on the apron and clean up the taxi lines plus they may well have the same problem many other airports have in that the parking spaces are small GA only, but… I can’t be bothered at present.

This turned my brain to mush and my carers often found me babbling about finding the right shade of asphalt so there are bits that still need finishing and a few slip ups here and there. I’ll return to it with fresh eyes as soon as I find a pair I like.
