This scenery is great! 

Yes, Anchorage scenery is very great! but too fast from the developer to release it as "Anchorage Professional" for P3Dv4. I would say Professional scenery for fs9 and FSX only at the moment. Anchorage for P3D v4 is not Professional but great scenery indeed.

Goodness, a discussion on train noise?? This but no one has noticed that 07R/25L is not the new extended 12,400 ft yet?  No one has noticed the DME transmitters are in wrong locations thus giving you wrong indications on approach?  I guess I'm not sure what is important.

Wow, that's an embarrassing oversight, and the 'excuse' from the devs is pure comedy gold....the runway extension wasnt included in Google-Earth satellite images yet. Beta testing was also very thorough as it seems

Looks like the 'professional' tag doesn't apply to the way they develop their sceneries...

This is nothing specific to Aerosoft, but it seems to me that 3rd party airport designers tend to get carried away with eye candy and neglect changes to navaids, comms, procedures and often even runway and taxiway geometry. Are we pilots or passengers?

Yep, even Orbx has bird sounds you can hear in the cockpit  with the cabin secure, but at least you can disable them. Agree that accuracy should take priority over aesthetics.

While I will agree that accuracy of navigation beacons and essentials such as runway placement, typography, etc. should be correct, I will say this in defense of many scenery designers- If "eye candy" was not placed at a premium, this lot would surely complain about how drab the scenery looks until everyone went blue in the face. AS certainly knows the grip they have on the market and at times, flaunt it in our face. I can't blame them though. We continue to buy and consume despite obvious flaws and projects rushed to market. Where is the motivation for them to change their ways?

They said they just upgraded the existing scenery and later on they can release an update that adds the extension. In my opinion that is fine, I still have a bad taste from Orbx and their attitude about modeling an extension for KSTS

This is precisely the problem.
