EFHK update

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Here’s a small update for EFHK, relocating the gates 32 and 33 to their final locations as per the latest AIP information. Also finally recompiled all the old FS2002-style objects, I’m curious if there’s any noticeable change in fps over the earlier version. As usual, extract over a fresh EFHK 1.61 installation to avoid any issues.

EFHK and EFHF FSX updates

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Updated my earlier FSX patches to properly work with the new versions of Malmi and Vantaa. No significant changes for EFHF, just includes the updated ground layout from the FS2004 version. EFHK patch now includes the improved performance taxiway lights, with the autogen problem corrected. Also should fix a texture issue in DX10 mode, though haven’t been able to test this one myself. Simply unzip over a fresh installation of the released files.

EFHK 1.61 and EFHF 2.1 released

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Packaged my latest updates for EFHK and EFHF into complete releases and both are now available at FSNordic.

EFHK 1.61 is the same version as the earlier beta, just a couple of bug fixes including the autogen problem. EFHF 2.1 includes all updates released since the original version, as well as a couple of new hangars and updated ground layout. Also should be compatible with Esa Sairio’s Helsinki Photoscenery which is highly recommended!

Remember to delete any earlier versions and work in progress updates before installing to avoid any conflicts!

EFHK 1.61 beta 1

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Here’s a test version of an upcoming patch for EFHK. I’ve addressed the problems in the original release, hopefully also mitigating the CTD issues. The scenery has also been heavily optimized, hopefully with a noticeable fps increase. Remove any earlier EFHK versions and install over a clean EFHK 1.6.


EFHK and EFHF FSX patches

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

A couple more updated FSX patches for EFHK and EFHF. For Helsinki-Vantaa, I’ve finally managed to work through the autogen problem, so the clear-cut area should be no bigger than in FS9. Also includes the approach and runway light fix. This version does not include the old background textures, so installing Esa Sairio’s Vantaa and Tuusula photosceneries is recommended. Install over the released FS9 1.6 version.

For Malmi, the FSX version is lacking some detail, like the perimeter fence and some landside objects. The ground however is working fine and compatible with Esa’s Helsinki photoscenery. Also included are the new objects from the earlier FS9 update. Install over the released FS9 2.01 version.

Again, please do report any issues with these work in progress updates.

EFHK 1.6 released

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

Just uploaded an all-inclusive version 1.6 of the Helsinki-Vantaa scenery, download available at FSNordic. It includes all updates released so far in a single package. New since version 1.5 is the completed terminal construction work, updated ground, lots of objects missing since the very first release, and a functional Visual Docking Guidance System. Read the readme file and requirements carefully before installing!

This will likely remain the definitive EFHK version for FS2004, next will be a completely new version for FSX using the latest scenery techniques. In the meantime, here’s the usual temporary FSX update, just unzip over the base 1.6 installation. Autogen problem still to be addressed.

EFHK 1.6

EFHK August update

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

I’ve been working towards a new EFHK release with all my updates in a single file for easy install. Here’s the latest snapshot that includes updated ground, some new objects and the long awaited night textures for the terminal. Also, I’m hopeful it might cure some instability issues too.

This is an all-inclusive patch that you can apply on top of any version, but a clean EFHK 1.0 install is recommended to avoid any incompatibility problems. Download the correct version (FS2004 or FSX) and extract into your EFHK directory.

EFHK FSX update

Monday, June 8th, 2009

And here’s the update from yesterday for FSX. Haven’t gotten around to fixing the autogen issue yet, but this version might be a bit easier on the FPS thanks to new taxiway lights. Please do report if you notice any change in performance. Install over a fresh EFHK 1.5 installation.

EFHK June update

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Here’s the latest snapshot of EFHK scenery for FS9. A couple of new objects, updated ground layout and some small bug fixes.

EFHK FSX compatibility

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

I used similar treatment as with the EFTU patch for EFHK, and with this patch the ground now works in FSX. The scenery is still very much not optimized for FSX, so there may be a serious FPS hit. Please do report how it works for you, I don’t think I can make a fair judgement with my own poor system. :)
