Egns – Ronaldsway Airport – Isle Of MAN – Upgrade for MFS2020

Egns – Ronaldsway Airport – Isle Of MAN – Upgrade for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

This is an upgrade of EGNS Ronaldsway Airport on the Isle of Man.

If you haven’t been here you jolly well should. Three things I very much enjoy are road racing, rallying and cutting that pesky tax bill. This place has all three in spades.

This wasn’t tooo bad compared to other stock airports but I still felt like interfering with it. It was a wrench killing off the magnificant golden structure to the right of the terminal that looked like something Prince would’ve lived in, or emerged from on stage, but progress demanded it.

All the ground textures and paint have been binned and replaced. The correct taxi system with taxiways and parking spaces has been installed. Light has been smeared all over. Outlying areas such as car parks, the fire station section and weird stretches of waste ground have been filled out. The airport approach has had some rock embedded in it.

A particular highlight is the custom terminal designed by Ted Andrews. You may thank Skell300 for finding it, refining it and doing the textures to work in this. It definitely ties it up very nicely. Hopefully more custom buildings will pop along.

One thing I couldn’t solve is this area’s fondness for turning luminous green. It’s been like that for a long time so go hassle Asobo rather than me.

My computer became toast while finishing this up so the odd thing might be broken, plus there’s more to do such as the taxi signs, a bit more detail all over, dealing with the green roads and a few other outlying roads could do with tickling up and down too.

That will be addressed in a few days when it’s repaired and I’ll look into adding antennas and other landmarks elsewhere on the island.

There were also certain outbuilding-type things on the airfield itself that I couldn’t figure out from the satellite photo so anyone in the know please let me know what they are.
