• 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.

MSFS Airport Name & Code Update

Good morning, everyone:
I've been playing MSFS 2020 for a while, and I noticed that one of my local airports has changed its real-world code, since the FAA allowed it to be a public airport. Right now, MSFS has the name set us "McDermott Air Park" with the code "31WI." However, since 10/9/2021, the FAA changed that designator to, "W11" and the name to "Sullivan." Also, MSFS does not list a CTAF frequency, which is now 122.9 since the airport became public. With that being said, is there a feature in the SDK that allows you to change the designator and name of the airport in the Sim? The user guide for the SDK is a little confusing. Since I'm not experienced with that kind of stuff, I thought I'd ask here, as I've had a lot of success on FsDeveloper. Any help you can provide is appreciated. For more information on the airport, you can go to either https://skyvector.com/airport/W11/Sullivan-Airport or http://sullivanairport.com
Regards,
Kevin Davis
