FS2004 Scenery
This is my first scenery for FS2004, created with EZ-Scenery. It was mostly done for my own personal use but with the lack of up to date scenery for CYUL I figured I might as well release it publicly. For this scenery to work you will need to download many EZ-Scenery/RWY12 libraries. I have included a complete list as well as download links for each file. The main terminal building was modified to look more like the real thing, the International and Transborder jetties were added and the Aeroquay was cut in half. The control tower was modified and a second one was added to the top of the terminal building. Gates were positioned and numbered according to their location at the time of the design. All gates have mostly accurate parking codes. Many structures were added such as parking lots, the multi-level parking garage and extra hangars. I also added some vehicles like baggage carriers, fuel trucks, de-icing trucks and the likes.Erik Theberge

INTRODUCTION (From Wikipedia)
------------------------------------

The birth of Dorval Airport goes back to the beginning of the 1940s. At the time, it was becoming clear that the Saint-Hubert Airport (Montreal's first official airport, in operation since 1927) could no longer meet the city's growing aviation needs. The Minister of Transport purchased the land at the Dorval Race Track, thus ensuring the best possible location for the new airport.

Montréal-Dorval International Airport went into operation on September 1, 1941 with three paved runways. By 1946, the airport was already hosting more than a quarter of a million passengers a year. This number grew to more than a million by the mid-1950s. At the time, it was the busiest airport in Canada. Dorval played an important role in the development of transatlantic aviation. It was primarily chosen as an airport because of good weather and few foggy days. During World War II it was the major transit point for departures to Europe. Thousands of Allied aircraft passed through Dorval on the way to England. Women - the WACs (Women's Air Corps) - played a major role in transiting aircraft to the war theatres by way of Dorval. At one time Dorval was the major transatlantic hub for commercial aviation and the busiest airport in Canada with airlines such as British Overseas Airways Corporation (B.O.A.C) landing at Dorval en route to New York.

In November of 1960, the airport was renamed Aéroport international Dorval de Montréal. On December 15 of that year, the Minister of Transport inaugurated a new 30 million dollar terminal. It was the largest terminal in Canada and one of the biggest in the world. Montréal-Dorval International Airport was the gateway to Canada for all European air traffic, serving more than two million passengers a year.

The airport was renamed by the federal government in honour of former Canadian Prime Minister, the late Right Honourable Pierre Elliott Trudeau, on January 1, 2004.

Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport underwent a major expansion and modernization designed to increase the terminal's capacity and substantially enhance the level of passenger service.

In February of 2000, with a budget of CAD$716 million, ADM announced plans for an extensive expansion plan that would bring Montreal-Trudeau up to stardards with other North American airports its size. The airport terminal had for the most part remained the same, with the exception of minor renovations, since its opening in the 1960s. With increased passenger volume resulting from the transfer of international scheduled passengers from Mirabel Airport in 1997, as well as Air Canada's intentions to make Montreal-Dorval its Eastern Canada hub, there was a strong need to greatly expand the terminal, whose capacity of roughly 7 million passengers per year had been exceeded.

The expansion program included the construction of several brand-new facilities, including a jetty for flights to the United States (Transborder Terminal), another for overseas flights (International Terminal) and a huge international arrivals complex for passengers arriving in Canada from the U.S. and abroad. A 17-gate Transborder Concourse, an 11-gate International Concourse, new Customs Hall and Baggage claim area for non-domestic flights, and an expanded parking garage, were built between 2000 and 2005. Additionally, sections of the Domestic area were renovated and expanded, accompanied with additional retail space.

The completion of the CAD$716 million expansion gives Montreal-Trudeau the ability to serve 20 million passengers a year. This ironically accomplished one of the goals that was to be met with the construction of Mirabel. (In the 1970s, the federal government projected that 20 million passengers would be passing through Montreal's airports annually by 1985, with 17 million through Mirabel).

Aéroports de Montréal is financing all of these improvements itself, with no government grants.

Starting in 2006, ADM began the next process of land access to upgrade road traffic to the airport, a new parking garage, and the improvement of the domestic terminal.

On June 15, 2006 construction began on a new four-star Marriott hotel at the airport. It will be linked to the Transborder Terminal and should be completed by fall 2008. It will eventually contain an underground train station to connect it with downtown Montreal for quick access.

On November 30, 2006, ADM announced plans to relocate numerous hangars at the western part of the airport in order to expand the Transborder and International terminals. The Transborder terminal will be upgraded to 25 boarding gates, while the International terminal will be reconfigured to accommodate 17 wide-body jets at any given time. Construction is slated to begin in 2007. When all upgrades are complete the airport will be able to accommodate 26 million passengers annually.

The last round of construction improved Montréal-Trudeau so that it is one of the few airports in the world that is prepared to handle the new Airbus A380. Air France will be the first operator of the type in Montreal and will use gate 55, which is equipped with two air bridges to load and unload passengers on both decks of the A-380 simultaneously.


SCENERY NOTES
--------------------------------------------

This is my first scenery for FS2004, created with EZ-Scenery. It was mostly done for my own personal use but with the lack of up to date scenery for CYUL I figured I might as well release it publicly. For this scenery to work you will need to download many EZ-Scenery/RWY12 libraries. I have included a complete list below as well as download links for each file.

FEATURES
--------------------------------------------

The main terminal building was modified to look more like the real thing, the International and Transborder jetties were added and the Aeroquay was cut in half. The control tower was modified and a second one was added to the top of the terminal building.

Gates were positioned and numbered according to their location at the time of the design. All gates have mostly accurate parking codes, some changes were made from real life to accomodate the necessities of FS2004.

Many structures were added such as parking lots, the multi-level parking garage and extra hangars.

I also added some vehicles like baggage carriers, fuel trucks, de-icing trucks and the likes.


REQUIRED LIBRARIES
-------------------------------------------

You will need to download and install each of these libraries for the scenery to display properly. I you don't download one or more, certain objects will not display.

Many other scenery files uses these libraries, so you might already have some installed. In that case, there is no need to install them a second time.

Each of these files should be installed according to their own instructions.


SCENERY INSTALLATION
--------------------------------------------

Since you are reading this, you have already extracted the zip file. You should have two folders, "CYUL" and "CYUL AFCAD". Simply copy these two folders to the "Addon Scenery" folder located in your main FS9 installation folder, (C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator 9Addon Scenery).

Then, lauch FS2004 and activate the two CYUL folders in the Scenery Library. Go to Settings/Scenery Libary, click "Add Area" and then browse to where you copied the two CYUL folders in the previous step. Make sure you do this for both the "CYUL" folder and the "CYUL AFCAD".

*****IMPORTANT*****
MAKE SURE THAT "cYUL AFCAD" IS LISTED ABOVE "CYUL" IN THE SCENERY LIBRARY.
*****IMPORTANT*****

PERFORMANCE
------------------------------------------

I have no trouble maintaining 30fps with 100% AI on a Core2 Duo E4300@3.0ghz with 2gigs of RAM and a 7800GTX. If you get less than satisfactory performance, you disable some of the BGL files in the CYUL folder by changing their extension to something like ".BAK". This will display less objects on screen and will hopefully increase your FPS.

KNOWN ISSUES AND TROUBLESHOOTING
-------------------------------------------

Some of the gate numbers at the Aeroquay have changed since I started work on this scenery. I left them as they were when I started, otherwise I would need to change all the signs at that location and I'm too tired :-)

The parking lots are slightly raised out of the ground. It is not noticable except if you are slewing nearby. This was to prevent some texture flashing that happens when two textures are at the same elevation. The flashing was really noticable from altitude, so I did it this way.

If you fly into CYUL and you see no AI planes and no taxi markings on the ground near the gates the "CYUL AFCAD" entry in the Scenery Library is not above the "CYUL" entry. Correct that and you should not have that problem anymore.

Also, if you use a texture replacement package that modify the default airport buildings texture, you might not get the intented texture on the terminal buildings. For example, one such package is Airport Environment Upgrade by Chris Arrington. There might be others I am not aware of.


REDISTRIBUTION AND LICENSING
------------------------------------------

You may redistribute and modify this scenery as you wish, without asking me for permission. In fact I encourage you to. As long as you don't do something stupid like charge money for it, knock yourself out.
Just include my name somewhere.


THANKS
------------------------------------------

Thanks to all the authors who created the library objects used in this scenery. Apologies if I miss anyone.

Steve Ziegler, Dennis Waggoner, Scot Ingram, Ron Jeffers, Sidney Schwartz, and Len Hickman.

Also thanks to Lee Swordy for AFCAD.
