Not sure if the devs frequent these boards for customer thoughts, but the moment they do Class B airports at $15 I'm in.

I agree. I definitely think Class B airports should have been included in this package.

I have to go back and check but I thought Class B airports already had correct taxiways handcrafted by Asobo. But maybe that is only the Asobo custom airports, I don't remember for sure. But I suppose they figure enough of the Class B airports are already covered by Asobo customs or 3rd party customs that there wouldn't be as much demand for it.

Or maybe Class B airports are programmed differently and require a different method to implement, maybe their algorithm doesn't work for them? It would be nice if they were included though, at least for the ability to choose parking ramps!

I'm happy with Zinnertek's Enhanced Airport Graphics,  so I think I'll pass.

They’re covering two different things.

To be fair, it seems to offer a lot more than just signage. Also removes taxiway lights from all over the apron, which I think is a pretty big feature. Options for different sizes of signage. Don’t know how they did it, but if it was manually done, this has to be extremely painstaking, so I’ll reserve judgment on their pricing on for now. I personally will pass for now though. 

To be fair, it is more than half of the price of the game!  I don't see over half of the game content in this ad on.  No way am I paying that..  MSFS will eventually fix the taxi signs.

And.... (a big "and") it doesn't include the B airports.  No thanks.

Raising this thread back from the dead it appears that Just Flight may have been listing to the complaints to some degree and they have "Simplified" their plans for the USA Real Taxi products.
https://www.justflight.com/articles/real-taxiways-usa-two-addons-coming-soon

There will now just be two addons -

Real Taxiways USA - Class B, C, D & Non-towered Airports - £26.99 (cheaper & adds Class B)

and

Real Taxiways USA - Military Airfields - £12.99 (same as before)

Still not cheap but certainly better value for the civilian pack at £26.99 (including Class Bs) vs £39.99 for the equivalent bundle before (minus the Class B)

I really hope it can clear up all the taxi lights that are in the middle of taxiways in many smaller airports.  As a GA pilot this is more and more annoying to have giant lights sticking out of them middle of parking spaces and taxiways.

Yeah, to be fair, I think most people had an issue with the price, not the product itself.  I don't need the military ones, so this price point is a lot more realistic for me.  I still want to see how much it really does, but I can see myself potentially buying it.

I'm mostly a USA flyer so having correct taxiways is important.  Still I'm very surprised it wasn't in by default.  Obviously there's a lot more to this product than just naming though.

Congrats to them for listening to customer feedback, admitting a mistake, and correcting it.

Just off of that alone I'm tempted to buy it.

There's nothing less interesting than the runway behind you and the space above you.

The user guides for both the Cillian and Military Real Taxiway products are now available and both contain the list of Airfield each one updates.

Civillian

Military

(Too many airfields to repost the list here but I make 105 in the Military Pack and 36 Class B, 519 Class C & D, 445 Untowered for a total of exactly 1000 in the Civillian pack)
