Surface bases for the "Lusophone Space Agency"

Kind of a side project that started from discussions between the Portuguese speaking space simulation enthusiasts.


This add-on groups several bases created for the Lusophone Space Agency:
  • Amílcar Cabral Airport (Cape Verde)
  • Beja Airport (Portugal)
  • Angola International Airport
  • Macau International Airport (China)
  • São Tomé and Príncipe International Airport
  • Timor International Airport
  • Alcântara Launch Center and Airport(Brazil)
     
The bases follow the actual airport layouts and no structures were added. The exception is Angola International Airport, as it is under construction and was created based on project renderings.
 
Standard Orbiter base blocks were used for all structures (with the exception of Alcântara Launch Center), in order to provide good performance. Landsat based Surface tiles are provided, complemented by other aerial imagery when available. The Lusophone Space Program is based on space tourism, using for that the well known Deltaglider fleet.
