Paul,For the fix, you must wait for the release of Microsoft's next version of Combat Simulator. In it, forces advance towards Baghdad, take over the airport, and the name automatically changes on all other Microsoft products. :)Hope the humor isn't offending. I'm almost sure either MS will have the new name in the next FS version or someone will soon release a BGL with the new name plus voice using a util like EditVoicePack. Dave Vega

I believe there is an international agency that registers airport names. I wonder if the new name is being accepted by that agency...Shermbtw, I kind of hoped the coalition would have kept the terminal name:Saddam Hussein International Terminal.It makes a rather appropriate acronym.sherm

Can't AFCAD do the name change? I know you can add new airport entries using it, and I assume you can change the name as well.

I rolled out a C-130 there and did a little patttern work on33R. Had some American Pacific AI in my way LOL.Don't think AFCAD can change airport names. I took a stabat it using BGLAnalyze and SCDIS to disassemble the mideafd.bgl,and I could change the name and run it through SCASM, but bothof these disassembers strip the agent names off the radiofrequencies, so all you get is "ground" or "Tower". Of course,AFCAD can change the tower and ground agent names, so youcan get that working even if the AP name on the go to airportis the old one. You probably could use editvoicepak to changeORBS to say BAGHDAD INTL, but not sure on that.scott s..

>Paul Meyer - Morris, C09 >>All I could say is,don't thrive on other people's miscery >>Shri. The United States of America does not "thrive on other people's miseery...(sic)". We are there to free the Iraqi people of a murderous tyrant and return the country's natural wealth to the people. We hope to bring responsible self government and democracyto a region which is sorely lacking in that political commodity.Sherm

That "damned flag" that you refer to represents ideals that could and should apply to the rest of the world when it comes to equality and freedom. I don't know where you live, but I will compare our system of justice and our way of life with yours any time you care to. Sherm

Bravo ShermThe biggest thing is that we follow through with reconstruction and keep the greedy fingers of nations that could care less about the Iraqis and supported the root cause away and they should come out in good shape.And if we do it right we might just have a friend in the region.
