• 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.

Work has started on the airport in Ft Myers. This will be AceWindDesigns first FREEWARE scenery. It took a long time before determining if we should go through with it. So far we have a team of two guys working on the important elements of the airport.

Our goal is to make an eye popping HD scenery. With a few new features that you don't usually find in most scenery.

This project is a much more of laid back project, meaning we do not have a deadline. We are hoping to have time to experiment and try new things along the way.

Hi Chris,

While I salute your efforts and I am certainly a huge fan of freeware - FYI - LatinVFR has KRSW - perhaps you might want to consider something we don't have ??? Either way - I'll appreciate anything you care to produce... Best of luck...

Regards,
Scott

When I started work on this project back in 2015, I had not heard of LatinVFR's KRSW scenery up to that point. A few months later I heard of their release of the same airport. So after that I took a long time deciding whether to continue with the project or not. And after a few months of thinking I finally decided to go ahead with the project, because we have put so much work into it, and after hearing of the development of the new runway, I felt that it would be a great learning experience for us, and a great update for KRSW flyers. Yes it's sad, but it has lots of potential, and it's FREE!

If you have any suggestions for airports in the future please let me know. I know it's kind of early, but I want an idea in my head of what I'm going to be doing.

Hi Chris,

Sounds great and totally understand - I know about blood sweat and tears invested in freeware... The initial post I took as you guys were just starting out - my apologies...

Personally - I like the Charlie's, Delta's, and uncontrolled fields that are off the beaten track a bit... It's really hard to suggest something - as I know the effort required and I know I have to be personally vested in a project to dedicate the required time... KSHD is a rather busy uncontrolled field that has lots of jet traffic in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley VA... Albany NY for a Charlie and Punta Gorda in FL for a Delta...

Best of luck !!!

Regards,
Scott

KPIE :scratchch

Good suggestion, I really like flying into PIE, but I wish there was a scenery for it. I will put this under serious consideration. Any other suggestions?

We will do any airport that the majority wants(Except maybe a big airport like KORD, or EGLL, we will leave that to the professionals.) So we are totally not ruling out KFXE:)

May I suggest KPVD? It's a rather large airport altough not huge and as far as I know there's no good scenery for it.

Yep - sorely miss Vauchez's most excellent FS9 KPVD Flight Zone 1 !!! KPVD would be high on my list as well...
