About This File
Here is my second new airport:
MMML - General Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada International Airport - Mexicali, Mexico.
The inspiration to make this came from a tv documentary that I saw 'The Plane Crash' where they used the airport as a base from which to see what happens to people in a survivable crash.
This is my first attempt at making some 3d models for terminal and other buildings which I have a good idea what they look like. There were few pictures of the 'air side' buildings so they may not be perfect.
While the airport is much smaller than the much larger KEWR that I did on my first attempt at scenery, this gave me the opportunity to use and develop the skills I learned on that project and try and really impove the quality and end up with a small but interesting and detailed airport that should be fun to fly from.
Nice location to learn to fly in the stable desert weather. Excellent location to crash your old used 727's.
Buildings modeled include:
Volaris / Mexicana
This scenery also includes orthophotos for the airport. I'd try to blend them in more to the default but the desert in x-plane is the wrong colour at the moment.
Orthophotos are courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey. The USGS home page is http://www.usgs.gov
To operate correctly OpensceneryX must be installed.
I hope you enjoy using this and look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!
What's New in Version 1.1
- I have attempted to correct the colour of the orthophotos. It's not perfect, if anyone else want to have a try I can provide original images.
