It's time to make a splash! We have more and more float planes in this sim, but the few seabases provided by Asobo don't have any parking spot. Which means: there is no simple way to start our waterly adventures in cold and dark. Or there was no way... Because this time is past!
You want to go to the North Pole? Fly along the Mississippi river? Explore the French or Spanish coasts? Make a tropical adventure in Hawaii? Try to take off on the Seine in the middle of Paris with the Hercules H-4? Visit "my" town of Melun? Plan some beautiful trips in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, etc.?
It took me time to wander the surface of the Earth, but all of this is here: The Ha Long bay, The Loch Ness, Dubai and it's "World", Glen Canyon Dam over the Colorado River, The Thames in London and the Hudson River of course... Some incredibly beautiful lakes stuck between mountains on the edge of Nepal, in Canada or in Chile. The Danube, the Elbe, the Volga, the Nile, the Amazon River, etc. ... All of this is covered! What are you waiting for?
I placed 100 water airports all over the world. Each airport has 2 parking spots for cold and dark starts. 50 of these airports are onto the sea, next to important cities. And 50 of them are placed onto lakes or rivers: Somewhere in remote and magnificent landscapes. And somewhere in the middle of cities.
There are two versions of this mod, when you click on download. Just pick the one you prefer:
- Main file: version with lights on the runway's edges, so you can easily spot the location from the sky and by night/bad weather.
- "NOLIGHTS" file: not a single light or buoy. No visual clue about where you're supposed to land. The landscape stays untouched.
About the ICAOs of these airports:
Here is the map of (almost) all the 200 airports from pack 1 and 2: https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=013ca99d-b859-439c-b2ae-f53c40058cdc&cp=45.677451~5.886796&lvl=16&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027 with their ICAO codes too.
I had to remove a few locations from Bing Maps to be able to share this collection. So don't worry if there are only 195 airports visible. You'll definitely get 100 with pack 1 and another 100 with pack 2.
Have some great flights!
