• 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.

FSX Looking for airport BGL file.

Hello all,

I am trying to locate a BGL File in FSX/scenery folder {not add-on scenery folder} but,all in there are a combination of numbers and letters such APX03070 after you've clicked folders named with numbers which do not represent the airport' ICAO code. How can I locate the airport I want? What do the "APX03070" mean?

Something like this "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery\0503"

Thanks in advance.

If you have ADE or AFX then you can find out what folder the airport is in. In ADE just go to Open Stock Airport, find the airport and look at the file name in the display near lower right

Be warned that it is not a good idea to modify, move or replace stock files. Most APxxxx files contain more than one airport - some contain hundreds. So doing anything to them may well affect a lot of airports and their scenery.
