• 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.

Adding new Airport

Hello all,

This may have been answer before. i use fs2004 and i have added all the current Belize airports to y addon scenery folder. i have done the collect airport option and it collect everything i select from the flight simulator 2004 folder. However i click save and when i go to create a flight plan and put in MZCK for example which i have in my addon scenery it doesnt allow it says airport is not there would i like to add the details but before it was able to do this and add it fine.

Any ideas would be greatful :)

If anyone is interested in the package too let me know i can send you the airports :)

Jovic, MZCK is not a stock airport in FS9 (or ay other version). I assume you have an add-on for MZCK. If so, you need to collect add-ons in AIFP to make AIFP aware of the airport. If you've done that correctly, then you will find a record for MZCK in AirportList_Addons.dat (a text file). If MZCK isn't listed in that file, then you've not collected add-ons correctly.

Incidentally, you noted above "but before it was able to do this and add it fine." If that's the case, why did you collect airports again?
 
so i select the collect airports. i select fs9 and then select the the location by directory tree, once i have seen this for example below belmopan. MZ64 for example. ill explain better.

Collect airports

addon airports > FS9 > Direct tree > select FS9 folder > select addon scenery (scenery folder) > User selected checked > Collect > Save and once saved crossed off.

I then go to create a flight plan and still MZ64 is not showing. it finds it when i user selected folder above for example. I only have this one addon airport to show you the example.

i think i found it. I had to select on Airports > "use any collected addon data. Then i tried a flight plan and shows it from the list. :)
