This set gives you another option in decorating your hoods.
Now using these custom ‘hood decorations, you can add a regional airport to your town, business area, university camp or whatever!

Important:
Since all main objects are extra large, they use an extra large custom textures so use this set carefully if your computer isn’t strong enough.
I've set Night Life EP as required for using this decorations, but the idea is that you need at least one of any EPs installed,to have this decoration aviable from 'hood decorations menu.
But it is also highly recommended to have a Free Time EP installed, to be able to edit exiting terrain, for better use of this set. Because of it was created for totally flat terrain, it may look bad on any kind of hills, mountains and terrain slopes – please keep this in mind when you will work on a decorative airport in your neighborhood.

Installation:
Just put all the *.package files from the zip to your ‘Downloads’ folder.

What’s inside:
The set contains 5 elements:

1. Airport terminal.
An object that includes terminal building with a control tower, road approach and car parking (all in one).
Can be found under “infrastructure” of the ‘hood decorations menu.

2. Airport Runway and tarmac.
This object includes a runway, taxiways and tarmac. Navigation towers also is a part of this object.
Can be found under “miscellaneous” of the ‘hood decorations menu.

3. Airport Hangars.
This is a simple object contains 3 airplane hangars with a taxiway.
Can be found under “miscellaneous” of the ‘hood decorations menu.

4,5. Airplanes.
An airport without any planes? No way!
These 2 objects is a small Cessna looking airplane and bigger one that reminds some kind of business jet.
Can be found under “miscellaneous” of the ‘hood decorations menu.

Few facts:
Since it’s a set of separated objects, you can make some variations in layout of your own airport:

All the objects can be placed over the road, and also, over the lot.
You can build your own airport buildings complex using the lots and combine it with some parts of this set to make an airport of your dream.

Enjoy!

Oh... Shady, that could be a problem.. I should check it myself too.
Numenor, thank you! For me it looks quite well too. All the objects in airport set was cloned from few motorway set elements, may be this could make a problem..

Wildchild, if you have a Freetime EP you can terraform your island (by terraforming cheat) to create a peninsula for it, or add a small airport for small planes with a runway out of dirt road tiles from the road pieces set

Thanks for this set, it looks very nice. I do miss some kind of passenger plane though, a Dash-8 for example would have fitted in really good.

Edit: using the dirt road tiles was an excellent idea, I might steal that one at some point.

Midge, try 'modifyNeighborhoodTerrain' [on/off] and then use '[' and ']' keys for raising and lowering terrain. Also, '\' for leveling selected area
(for further info try look here: http://modthesims2.com/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Cheats)

Zaxis, huh Dash-8 is a good one But too big i think

Actually, after a little googling, it seems that the smallest Dash-8 can use the same runway length as private jets.


Just a note regarding the modifyneighborhoodTerrain cheat, if you do not have an English keyboard the keys will be different. For example, on my norwegian keyboard it is the '|', '\' and 'å' keys.

Ah! Someone been on Widerøe, the Dash 8 is a good idea, perhaps a B737, B747 or A330, now that would be amazing! I was wondering, Criqutte, if the slightly larger airplane is recolourable, I was thinking of sticking a nice Delta or KLM livery on it!

p.s. you can clearly tell I am an aviation enthusiast!! thats why i love this work!

Haha, yes, I've been flying with Widerøe a couple of times. To quote an old song: "Where SAS don't want to, where Braathens Air doesn't dare, Widerøe comes dancing in."

Congrats on the featured, Criquette.

Milly1 - what won't work? If you mean this download, it's a neighbourhood object, you find it in the neighbourhood objects tab when you are in neighbourhood view.
