MTP abcvs Small Landing Strip

This landing strip, is a small yet busy functional airport, designed for your MTP communities and will replace the Maxis Small Landing Strip.
 
All costs and stats remain the same as its Maxis replacement.
 
To install unzip and place the lot file in your Plug-ins folder.
 
To un-install simply delete the file from your plug-in folder, and the original Maxis landing strip will return.
 
Features include:
 
Improved taxi-ways with runway lighting.
MTP / Rural themed textures, flora and props.
Timed aircraft props to simulate aircraft movement.
Different day and night timed people and cars.
Security Guards will come on and off shift during the day and night at the main security checkpoint.
The security gate on the far side of the airport will line up with the gates on the MTP Econo-Airbase, and the Mountain Airforce Base to provide a paved runway for the cash-strapped MTP airforce.

UDI - This airport still includes the Skydiving, Crop Dusting and Stunt Plane "U-Drive it" planes.
 
Dependencies:
PEG-MTP Super Pack
PEG-Security Fencing

It looks really amazing, but the hard part I struggle with is the fact that it replaces the standard, if you could change that, I'd love to download. 5/5 for the actual creation though :)

Unfortunately, that seems to be part of the deal when re-lotting the Maxis airports... there is no 'save as' option. However the good news is that even if you install this file, and then remove it... the standard maxis landing strip will then reappear in your menu... so the Maxis landing strip is only 'replaced' while the file is installed. It is not gone forever...

@zuesian - The PEG-MTP Econo Airbase - http://www.simpeg.com/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=190... can't seem to find it on the STEX for some reason.

It looks good, but what is the thing it lines up with?

The PEG-Econo Airbase has now had a makeover...

      Carefully crafting a masterpiece requires a sense of passion to set it apart from all other interpretations of your art. Automotive manufacturing is no exception. There is no such phrase as "good enough"; it all has to be "just right". Whether it's your V12 sports coupe, the Vesper Martini waiting at home or last night's explosive date- show some emotion!
      About the Upload-
      There are seven vehicles contained in this zip folder. Each one is a 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish. These are High-Wealth vehicles, given their approximate value. They will appear on your road networks.

      This package extends the RMIP-2 airport pavement set with aircraft parking and several accessory lots.

      Aircraft stands on turf, asphalt, and concrete are included, plus alleyway markings, fillers, and taxiway junctions. This package pre-dates BATed aircraft -- the MAXIS regional jet, four-prop, bizjet, and single-prop are used on these stands.

      Other lots/props included in this package:
      - prefab U-Drive-It airfield
      - small aircraft hangars
      - VOR and compass calibration pads
      - windsock and tetrahedron props
      - jetbridge for MAXIS regional jet

      This upload is provided as a plain ZIP file, just like the original.

      No dependencies.

      For issues with this file, and to check out (much newer) airport stuff see the AC Team boards over here.

      I thought it's time to get my own topic running as I started some more advanced, larger project a day ago. Besides the vehicles I created before I started working on some vanilla-style modular airport, based on the vanilla airport and international airport assets. Due to my quiet limited time caused by real life don't expect extra-fast progress
      Still I've got to update my "old" vehicle assets too, but the vehicle editor seems to be kinda messed up since the last patch - anyway I'll look into this too by time as I already promised!
       
      For now I got the following types of buildings planned for this airport set which is heavily inspired by the AC teams set for Sim City 4
      functional terminal block with three "small" gates functional terminal block with two "large" gate non-functional terminal filler pieces with gates terminal piece with control tower (RICO Office) terminal block without gate (RICO commercial low) monorail / (elevated) metro / train terminal pieces terminal block with taxi stands (AD required) terminal block with bus hub (to be connected to the tarmac and without airport functionality - just to connect aircraft stands in some nice way  ) terminal block with road maintenance service building (connected to the tarmac side to simulate road-traffic on the airport  )  
      functional terminal with concourse (4 + gates using sub buildings) "T - style" functional concourse piece (featuring gates on both sides, will probably require network extensions as it has to be entered on foot from the underground using pedestrian "roads") eye candy ends for concourse, left and right  
      eye candy transition piece between one-level and two-level terminals (maybe even RICO - enabled, we'll see) two-level functional terminal blocks (will be a challange to be set up - I try to set the entrances on the upper level, the exits on the lower level) two-level terminal with control tower (probably RICO office + functional (using sub building - I don't know yet if something like this is possible)) large fake-entrance piece for two-level terminals (RICO commercial high) (so especially when using rush hour many people gonna go into this one) monorail / (elevated) metro / train two-level terminal pieces two-level terminal block with taxi stands (AD required) two-level terminal block with bus hub (to be connected to the tarmac and without airport functionality - just to connect aircraft stands in some nice way  )  
      simple helipads with one of each natural disasters helicopters working doppler radar dome (requires ND - a non working version is available on the workshop) stand-alone ATC towers surface movement radar tower some props like (enhanced) vanilla jet bridges, stand guidance displays and other small things which will be pretty Special features:
      rotating radar domes for ATC towers and the radar tower (gotta look into this!) usage of the "vehicle rotor" shader discovered by @Ronyx69 for large glass parts of the terminals (I try to work around the lod-problem) stock-game style as I use the textures and models from the game as my start-point   usage of the "loading screen mods" benefits → as I use the same texture with the same name most of the times it will be loaded only once into VRAM when using this mod - which is great! living airports by the use of RICO settings - which you don't have to use at all (those buildings will work as an landmark if you don't use that mod ) more space between planes and terminals due to longer jet bridges - you'll be able to draw some road in between using the anarchy tool of your choise Downsides:
      jet bridges will disappear after a certain distance as I'll convert them to props. I decided to do so to increase flexibility on creating different terminal types and styles   by using many working two-gate assets ingame the airport will get really congested! That's the reason for me to include non-functional versions too.  
      Later on I might create a mod to enhance the vanilla runways and taxiways. I looked up the networks in mod tools and changed some values to test something which turned out to be possible:
       
      different wide runways (40m up to 65m for realistic regional and international airports - new network meshes needed) more realistic markings with lights on runways (probably by adding more segments to one network, segment[0] would be just asphalt to place some indicator like "20L", segment[1] would be the threshold, segment[2] would contain the dashed line only, segment [3] dashed line + precision marking followed by 2x (segment[2] again, then segment[3]) and finally segment[2] for the whole middle part to start in reverse after  - dunno if that's possible at all) two-way taxiways (for special use-cases) taxiways with "shoulders" (a bit wider than now) and green lights in their middle taxilanes (taxiways with some flat mesh and without dirt-shoulders to be used on aprons. probably just the yellow line with green lights.) more realistic speeds for taxiways and taxilanes I gonna provide one screenshot just to show you the difference:

      On the left you can see the vanilla runway which is about 30m wide + 2m "shoulder" (mesh edge) → 32m footprint. The next ones footprint is 46m wide which would fit most regional/domestic airports. The one on the right is 60m wide which fits for large aircraft like the A380.
      ----------------------------------------snip----------------------------------------
       
      First I gonna take off by showing you some first work I've done before starting this topic. This is going to be the first wall-to-wall terminal building featuring three gates (just like the vanilla airport).
       

       
      I removed the jet bridges and details on the left and right to save some polys and - of course - to get the bounding box right  
      Next step will be to map those filled holes, after this I gonna cut the windows and create some basic interior as those will get some semi-transparent love they deserve

      I'm missing the reward slots for the PEG navy mod for Navy bases 3 and 4. They never seem to show up in the rewards section, even with cheats used.
       
      Help?

    • Thank-you for making it clear how to connect the water pump.   It was a detail that I overlooked in my description because I was running the tests using the utility radius mod.   I think from now on in my descriptions I will offer to assist anyone that may have issues with making the lot work.  That may help preventing jumping to conclusions.  I'm including a new preview using @CorinaMarie 's graphic that shows how to connect the pump.
    • Ah! Howdy! Those are cars! Especially the red one shortens commuter times!
    • I followed the steps that came up but in the end there was an error message, "The system cannot find the file specified"
    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light.   As well, the darker tone of the water would be natural to the depth and confined space where there would be less scattering of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
