• 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.

I lost 2 weeks on SODE jetways but I think it worth the time and trouble. I have continue my work on the jetways of Terminal2. After that I have to draw the red line for the jetway area and parking bay. I need to do jetway before drawing those lines in order to match the position of the jetway. It is closed to complete the job now. Just the light poles, taxiway signs and taxi lights.

I just finished all the jetways of Terminal 2 today. They are the most difficult of all three terminals since I need to change the terminal to fit the bridge leading to the each jetway. The connection of the bridge to the terminal is not just a wall but there is an indent of the wall. I finally found the way to put the stairs together with the jetway. I cannot put the stairs with the bridges and terminal together since the polygons exceed the limit. Now I have to go back to draw the lines for the parkings and and the red line for jetway area.

I just bought satellite photo and I put it in QGIS and get the coordinate of the photo. There is still problem of miss matched from the one I did from google satellite photos. Anyway it is just quite color adjustment.
Spring and Summer time.

The new satellite photo cause me a big headache. I have found the was to work with the big satellite photohere I need to adjust the buildings to the new photo. But I think it worth the trouble. The detail of the photo is quite good even it is just 0.5m/pixel . There is higher resolution for that, just the money in the pocket cannot reach that level! If it is a small airport, I would take it. But the airport at this size does cost me arm and leg.

At the center of the airport. A lot of buildings the pictures are hardly available. Imagination is a good thing.

A lot of condos and apartments on the south side. I have been on the project for 2 years and new buildings come up already.

I think I need to add more buildings on the side of the airport.
