Dear vPilots;

This LTFM airport is the 3rd airport in Istanbul and has been built to replace LTBA Ataturk Airport which will shut down the operations after 2020. It was opened on 29th October 2018 on the day of 95th anniversary of declaration of modern Turkish Republic.

Turkish Virtual Airlines (www.turkishvirtual.com) that operates on Vatsim has made a cooperation among its pilots and some other virtual pilots in order to start flight operations on MSFS2020, P3D, FSX, FS2004 and X-plane 11/10 to LTFM at the same time with the real World operations. They took more than 2 months to complete these projects and they are still being developed regularly. Thanks to the endless efforts of ...

LTFM Istanbul New Airport for X-Plane 11 v2.0 (11.30+)
Please read down below description for how to install the LTFM NATURAL VERSION.

• There are 2 options to select from: A - FLAT and B - NATURAL

I will share 2 separate packages to avoid problems for those who does not care about slopes and tunnel entrances.
As the file names are self explanatory, I will ONLY explain installation details in depth for NATURAL version.
Select whichever you want. Both packages contain base ZL19 "airport" orthos.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ASKING FOR HELP OR COMPLAINING AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL NECESSARY LIBRARIES INSTALLED.

Required libraries / plugins:
- BS2001 Objects Library
- CDB-Library
- TFS_Aircraft_Library
- The_Handy_Objects_Library
- MisterX_Library
- OpenSceneryX
- SAM_Library and Plugin (freeware)

If you do not already have the libraries used in this package, you may find download links in the Master Library
List: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=90776

After making sure you have all necessary libraries, proceed to INSTALLATION:
FLAT option is a FLATTENED version of the NATURAL scenery so there are no slopes and tunnel entrances or elevated terrain; it looks just like a dinner table. For this option you do not need to worry about "Runways follow terrain contours" setting as it will not have any affect. Simply copy the _LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0 folder from the LTFM_FLAT.zip file in your Custom Scenery folder and start X-Plane 11 and enjoy.

If you had previously installed my _LTFM_Istanbul_GWS110 NATURAL scenery along with it's overlay and ortho files you do not need to reinstall them, just unpack this new _LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0 folder and place it in your Custom scenery folder, re-arrange your scenery_packs.ini file and start your XP 11 but you still need abovementioned libraries and plugin. If not, please read further.

For NATURAL option, we had to work a lot and we still need to work further to make the scenery reflect the reality. As the default X-Plane 11 mesh and the mesh obtained during ortho creation are both very much outdated, we decided to create a "patch" for the airport area using another magical tool named JOSM.

We used official AIP charts as our reference for the elevations at certain points of the airport area and used cross section charts to create the actual slopes of each and every one of the 5 current runways - as much as we could, of course.

Nearly all buildings we could spot from publicly shared videos and photos have been modelled and placed as close to their actual coordinates as possible.

To install the LTFM (NATURAL) scenery, simply extract the "_LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0" folder from LTFM_NATURAL.zip file to the Custom Scenery folder .

BUT... If you do not copy provided Overlay and Ortho folders or create your own high ZL tile using the provided "patch" file and add them to your Custom Scenery folder, the outcome may not be so pleasant. Therefore, please carefully read and apply below instructions. Also, the "Runways Follow Terrain Contours" option MUST be "selected" in the General Settings tab otherwise the scenery will NOT be rendered as intended and you may have an unexpected FLAT or RAW outcome.

Installation for Ortho4XP users for NATURAL version:
I am sharing the Overlay files off of Alpilot's HD Mesh v4 (yOrtho4XP_Overlays.zip) and also the ZL14 Ortho4xp files for the region (zOrtho4XP_+41+028.zip). Just extract the folders contained in these 2 zip files to your Custom Scenery folder along with the _LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0 folder. Finally you should have 3 NEW folders:
_LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0
yOrtho4XP_Overlays
zOrtho4XP_+41+028 and these should be added to your scenery_packs.ini file in similar order - see below example. There may be other items in between. Make sure that you do not already have ortho files for the mentioned tile and if so move them out to a safe place before you proceed copying these - just in case. You may need to remove any other LTFM scenery package(s) or DISABLE them in your scenery_packs.ini file.
....
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/_LTFM_Istanbul_Intl_v2.0/
....
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/yOrtho4XP_Overlays/
....
SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/zOrtho4XP_+41+028/
....
For people who wants HIGH ZL Orthos:
You can also use the contained "patch" file to create your own high ZL orthos with Ortho4XP. For this, you need to copy the "Patches" folder to your Ortho4XP main folder and run Ortho4XP. The file location should look like this ...\Ortho4XP\Patches\+40+020\+41+028\LTFM.patch.osm

If you understood what I wrote above, you should be able to create a high ZL tile with Ortho4XP without a problem, otherwise watch some YT videos :)

• Installation is easy but you first need to download the base imagery files from our Google drive for a better immersion. The geotif files that I had used to create this imagery set were downloaded from GO2 using Ortho4XP and converted to MSFS format using various other freeware tools. After downloading the zip file, extract the contained "argaeus-tayakadin-ltfm-istanbul" folder to your Community folder like any other add-on for MSFS 2020. The file is just under of 1 GB in size (zipped) and here is the link to it:

''https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UAaAaDw6G3r_QE7a023xiITAA5C0QwKq?usp=sharing''

• Without these files your scenery will be placed on 6 yr old forest imagery :)

• Obviously you need to extract the actual scenery folder (argaeus-ltfm-istanbul) that you downloaded from this site and place it to your Community folder and start your simulator.
