Airport editing

Recommended Posts

Hello! Can someone tell me how I go about editing airports? I want to edit my local airport to add more detail and make it as accurate as possible. I will be starting real flight lessons soon and want to use FS2002 to learn procedures when operating in a large airport. Unforturnately, the airport modeled in FS2002 is lacking and I want to polish it up a bit.Is there a program that will allow me to edit the airport in FS2002 or will I have to make one from scratch and then add it into the sim? If there is a tutorial somewhere that would help I would be grateful to know where I could find it. I have seen quite a few utilities in the AVSim library, but I have never done anything like this, so I do not know what program would be best to use or where to start. Any help you can throw my way is appreciated!Thanks!Dave

You can't really edit an default airport, the best way is the make your own one and then exclude the parts from the default airport that you don't need anymore.If you have never made any scenery before you can probably best start with learning some of the tools a bit. For making the scenery you can use any of those:FSSC - http://www.avsim.com/fsscGroundMaker - http://www.groundmaker.orgAirport - http://www.airportforwindows.comAll three have about the same features, so you can best pick the one that you think works best.If you also want to make new 3D objects you also need a program for that. GMax or EOD are two free options for that or you could use the commercial FSDS.
