• 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.

FS2004 EIDW Dublin New Air Traffic Control Tower

A new north runway at EIDW Dublin is scheduled to open in the second half of 2021. In anticipation of the new runway a new control tower was built because views of certain parts of the new runway system will be obstructed from the old control tower. I created a mini-scenery of the new tower and ATC center as an addon to Aerosoft Mega Airport Dublin. The Aerosoft Mega Airport Dublin scenery predates both the new control tower and the north runway. Please note this mini scenery DOES NOT ADD THE NEW RUNWAY. No files of the original scenery are altered by this addon. The scenery is available from the libraries at AVSIM and Flightsim.com.

An interesting feature of the new control tower is the night lighting of its cab, which can be changed to mark certain events. For instance, green for St. Patrick's day in March, rainbow colors for gay pride month in June. At least a half dozen color combinations can be found on the internet in photos and videos. The scenery replicates these and I've added a few additional just for fun. In between these event colors the tower displays regular night lighting. Colors change automatically based on calendar dates.

Thanks to Dedl Klemmt and Ed Cox for testing the scenery for me with Aerosoft Mega Airport Dublin.

Left FS2004 for years, but it is amazing to see how incredibly detailed addons still are. Looks really good!

Sorry Keith, I cannot offer any help because I have no idea what is causing your problem. So far you are the only person to report such a problem.

In response to your previous question, I have no plans at this time to do an add on for the new runway. Maybe some day.
