• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Thanks everyone -
I've been experimenting with static aircraft and adding details to the ramp areas. Please note, these static aircraft are not mine and I still need to see if I can get permission to include them in the scenery. Nevertheless, if I can't I'm sure I could do a quick repaint as well. DYLWOR, I'm considering releasing a download link after this is complete. Please keep in in mind though as Marc pointed out, there is still a lot to do. I feel though releasing it sooner than later for those who want a quick update to the default scenery is however better than nothing.

With this all in mind, if anyone is familiar with Adelaide, and wants to help with the project, I would be open to help with the 3D modelling of surrounding buildings/hangars. DM me if this interests you.

Thanks for looking.

Can I make a huge request that you create static aircraft in a separate BGL so end users can turn them off? I personally hate static aircraft in scenery addons. It’s better to add AI aircraft traffic to an airport and have them fly a circuit or something once a week. Otherwise it’s a waste of compute power. I come from the world of Project AI, Ultimate Traffic and other AI traffic addons.

Might I suggest adding such aircraft by just having them do a circuit once per week. This way you will get more aircraft but their parking location on the airport will change.

The problem with static aircraft is that if a real world operator uses the scenery and wants to park in a real world spot and there’s a static aircraft there in the scenery it’s not cool.

Sure I don't see why I couldn't implement something like that. It's really an idea I'm just tinkering with as it seems a bit odd not to see any aircraft parked at the gate (Maybe not at the moment but hey). I completely understand the frustration of static aircraft so I'll definitely make a work around for that.

You are awesome, thank you!!!

As an Adelaidian myself, I can't bare to see the current state of YPAD. I had to make my own basic scenery through the SDK just to make it a little more bearable. The exquisite detail in each of your models is remarkable! How are you making these assets (Im currently working only with the MSFS SDK)? I don't have alot of time owing to schoolwork but I would like to help make adelaide a better scenery!

Hi all,

I finally have some to show on the development of Adelaide for MSFS. With the new sim, everything is moving much faster. Satellite imagery is no longer an issue which is great. That being said, I don't then see Adelaide being released for P3D any time soon if at all. MSFS seems to be the future of flight simulation and a lot of the methods are no longer cross compatible. P3D is also a real headache to develop with.

To emphasise how much I want to get this released, I am proposing releasing this now as freeware/donationware given the time it has been since announcement. This would be essentially a pre-alpha release with only critical buildings and details in place. For example, static jetways for the release and updates may see dynamic jetways etc. That way, the scenery can be constantly re-iterated and updated for as long as needed without delaying release any longer for those who have waited so long. I realise I will keep updating/changing the scenery probably indefinitely (Being my home airport) so this could be the only way to see a release.

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is enjoying MSFS2020!
Just seeing if this was going to be released as per above statement above or not just yet? Cheers.

Hi All,
My team have picked this up off BTD.

We're working away, still quite a bit to add as the airport has had some renovations since BTD Started.

Find some attached photo's

A small update if you have missed it on our Facebook. Custom ground aerial has now been configured and added to the upcoming release.

Animated Jetways have been completed, just have to work on some retexturing.

We've entered the closed state of our project so no more photos will be uploaded as we are close to completion. a few weeks before launch photos of the final build will be posted on our facebook!

That's worth the money for sure! Best modeled scenery for a long time to my opinion. What a great job!
Now only real AI traffic is needed to get this outstanding airport truly alive. Really impressed! Last pic seems not to be out of the sim but from reality.

Looks pretty real but is certainly a sim photo haha

You've done a really great job. Well done. Love the details on the landside of the terminal, and even the Vickers Vimy memorial. Maybe you can add a model of the Vickers Vimy inside too? 😉😁
