CYYZ Toronto Pearson Airport
1.20 July 27, 2014 Build
Chris K and the ISDG
This is a generally stable build with no library conflicts; and all areas should be drivable and flyable. The ILS may be a fraction off due to repositioning of the runways to their orthophoto corrected locations, and verified with another 3rd party. It is also currently lacking ATC taxi-flow.
However, these omissions are not “showstoppers” per se.
- Photorealistic terrain at 30cm/pix resolution as per the USGS
- Proper Taxi Signage (was never there in any previous version of the CYYZ apt.dat it would seem)
- Recent CAP CYYZ Charts (SIDs/STARs/RWY Approaches)
- Repositioned most field objects to match the orthos, accurate within 15 cm +/-
- Fixed runway markings, blastpads, and the like to reflect reality
- Gritty ground and orthophoto texture support
- Replacement Glideslope towers
- Runway Stop Bar / Guard Lighting System (this is for YYZatcboy Joe How’s this for accuracy! )
Each runway entrance is protected by a stop bar consisting of red in-set lights located at all taxi holding positions.
This is the runway warning/occupancy indicator system in-use in Toronto, and will be familiar to most heavy metal pilots.
- Build-out of industrial parks, Eglinton Ave E, Airport Road, Dixie Road, Brittania, Dixon Road, and the Hotel Strip
- Various “Easter Eggs” with more to come in subsequent releases. (See if you can find the Tim Horton’s Coffee Shop!)
Notes on the Taxiways:
There are two versions of the taxiways included in this package.
1. Normal taxiways shown (regular asphalt, visible, drivable)
2. Hidden taxiways (regular asphalt, not shown, but still drivable)
- You can also turn off the taxiways (hide/show) by replacing the “.POL”files located in the “orthophotos/” directory. This will give the same effect as in our CYTZ Package; whereas the taxiways are only drawn as per the ortho, but with visible (XP generated) centre, edge, and-hold-line markings.
- Assuming you have the VRAM to run in extreme (native texture) resolution, you can take advantage of the full photo-realistic ground effect.
- Simply copy the appropriate files form the “/1 Hide Taxiways/” directory into the parent directory and overwrite the existing POLs.
- To restore the regular (visible) taxiways, simply copy the contents of the “/2 Show Taxiways/” into the parent directory, overwriting the POLs.
- X-Plane 10.20 or better
- OpensceneryX 2.0 (http://opensceneryx.com/)
- A Modern Video Card with MINIMUM 512Mb VRAM.
- You will want to run this scenery at “Very High” or “Extreme” Texture Resolution.
- X-Plane 10.20 64-bit and 2 Gb VRAM Video card is recommended for the Highest Texture resolutions.
