Swanson is an airport located at the feet of Mt. Rainer and close to Mt. St. Helens making it a convienient starting point to visit Strom, Ranger Creek and many other WA/OR popular destinations. The airport is right next to Eatonville, a small rural community. Weather here is relatively mild, at least in WA state terminology :)

The approach to this airport is quite challenging as it is surrounded by hills on both sides of the (short and narrow) runway.

As you can see in the screenshots the area is small but extremely packed with details. I added most visual references near the airport like the baseball park among many others.
Special attention went to the street lamps and powerlines all around the area, hoping for a patch one day to be able to actually collide with them.

Unfortunately though, there are some minor issues.
The first one is related to the runway lighting. Unfortunately, as of now, it is not possible to move the runway edge lights closer to the asphalt and some lights are overlapping the nearby roads. I was undecided until the very end but then I compiled the project with the lights, let me know if you prefer without them. The caveat is that the runway end lights (green/red) will be lost as they are bound together with the edge lights.
Another minor problem related is to autogen road traffic. There are no tools in the SDK at the moment to exclude traffic from roads. This means that you could have company while taxiing to the runway. There's nothing I can do about it.
