I haven't noticed yet. Do you have a screenshot?

I guess that's what we get when people complain about them being too small.  Having said that, I flew out of a default airport tonight EGAE and didn't notice them looking monstrously big.

This is at the new Heathrow....

Beyond ridiculous if you ask me....Not sure if its a setting....happening at all airports....folks who looked at the update before they pushed it somehow thought this was how big taxi signs were?  Who knows....but I just shake my head in disbelief at what gets put in these updates...

Here is shot of my wing clipping it so you get a sense of how ridiculously big they are....not sure if I've ever been in a high-wing Cessna in real life that was in danger of clipping a taxiway sign with its....you know...HIGH WING! 🙄

The pic posted above looks correct.  They are usually pretty large up close.

edit:  Steve posted just before me and I agree - those are too large!  The pic with the C700 looks correct though!

A common theme with this sim - people point out something incorrect, and Asobo makes some ridiculous change that is way too far in the other direction.

It's like we should just stop giving feedback alltogether.

On a positive note...they are superbly detailed....3d modeling on the poles and the signs are inset as shown below...with even a bit of weathering on the metal....they just need to scale them down and all would be well I feel. 🙂

There are actual US and international standards documents for the sizes of these things if they would just bother to look at a reference.

Quick google search.  Looks like the signs in the sim are about 2X too large.

Microsoft are thinking of monetising the in game taxiway signs by selling the taxiway signs as billboard space to corporations.
