There is no FS2002-specific freeware scenery yet available for Kai Tak, but there is an excellent FS2000 package which works fine. You can get all the excitement of the Rwy13 IGS approach with this scenery. It's in the File Library at www.avsim.com and the file name is kaitak.zip . Here is another site which you also might like which has FS2002 Kai Tak specific information and links to more goodies: http://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.html .Trip

Yes, its the same file. Great stuff. For a while it looked like Thomas might do something for FS2002 but it's been quite a long time now so maybe he decided not to do it afterall. I sure wish I knew how to do that stuff because we really need a freeware FS2002 framerate-friendly version.Trip

Thomas HAS said he will do it, but it may take some time as he has to start from scratch; and he's up to other stuff too. Whether it'll be framerate friendly is another matter! Anyway, his Version 3 for FS2000 works fine in FS2002 (don't forget the exclude lines) although you'll see a few water textures around that don't quite match up to the new sim, but who cares about that? His Version 2 for FS2000, also, is the same airport but with a little less detail and less complex surrounding buildings; it's a lot better on FPS if the flying bit is all you're interested in.There are two commercial sceneries of Kai Tak available for FS2002, but it appears that they're somewhat out of scale, regrettably. If Thomas DOES turn up with the goods, that'll be the one to go for.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg
