• 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 Creating Bushtrips, question about adding landing strips

I'm working on a bush trip following along the Trondheim-Bodo train route in Norway (seen in all its springtime glory here -
) and I have a question about landing strips. There aren't a lot of convenient airports in this area, but there are quite a few big, empty fields. I'd like to put down a "temporary" landing strip in a couple of places. I'm assuming I create these like I would any custom airport. But my question is, do I need to create an airport object too or can I just add a runway without a parent airport? Is there anything special I need to do to make a random strip of grass a targetable landing spot?
One option I also considered was using the Icon 5a and making use of water landings. Is there anything different to the process of creating um...water airports?
