#Handcrafted United Kingdom Exclusive Drag and Drop

Lets make Gatwick Great Again!
Extract Folder as one into your community folder as gatwick
This version uses  Default Airport runways/taxiways and jetways... But all the terminals/piers/stand plates are handcrafted. Every stand number is correct on the airport but incorrect in the world map at the moment. This may change with world update uk. Depends on Asobo.
This is the full version with added animations and trains
A Lighter version is available here with all the upgrades but without the trains and monorail animations

Another Version i am developing which is a full Edit of runways/aprons/texiways/jetway positions and correct stand numbers in world map is available here

Installing updated versions for EGKK and Best way to clear your cache and get rid of old data indexes
1) Delete the older version 'gatwick' from community folder
2)Start fs2020 and spawn to default Gatwick
3)Close Fs2020 and install New version into community folder as 'gatwick'
4)Open fs2020
This method will solve the problem of scenery not appearing, or overlapping models

Ai building removed from taxiway Juliet
Packaged using latest SDK V0.10.0

V8

BA Hanger.
Pier 1 4K Bricks update.
South Terminal adjustments and Textures.

A380 stand 558 added- jetways inop ATM.
ATC tower lowered slightly.
Added detail to airbridge ends.
Added detail to 500's jetty stairwell pods on 500's..
Pls Note.. some safedocks need adjustment on 552/553/557/558 due to rework.

V7.9.4
Centre Line T bar end terminations on every pier stand.Gate 101 shifted and new centreline in place.Poliigon Concrete Blocks Generator 4K Textures for Pier 2 and airbridge supports. (more additions later)More work on North Terminal added details and re levelling building heights using Google Earths NEW telemetry data as a visual reference aidV7.9.3
All Jetty Stands now have safedocks and stop markers for A320/747/787
Some tweaking still needed for 500's
V7.9.2
Test Introduction of  Stop Markings on13,15,17,19,21,23Stand 23 is calibrated with its own safe dock.13-21 are not yet calibrated and checked but with a bit of luck they will match with the safedock stop.This is particularly useful for the Dreamliner where visibility of the safedock  disappears near stop point due to H.U.D and low windows. In VR you can duck to see the safedock but in normal 2D you can now finish the taxi on stand in external view and capture the stop marker. This problem is only on stands 13M-23 due to reduced stand size
81 Safedocks now added and calibrated
1-5 Airbus or smaller
31M,32M,33M,34M,35M,36M,37,38 747 or smaller

Dreamliners may be a bit tail out on 13M,15,17,19,21,23. But 747 are as snug as a bug in a rug
stand 25,27 747 ASABIR (as snug as a bug in a rug)
Pier 5 
Airbus or smaller 48L,49 L/R,, 50 L/R, 51 L/R,52 L/R, 54 L/R

More waves of stands in V7.9.. 
Any pilots with parking issues are very gratefully recieved, off centre line issues or tweaks i need to make to the stop points do let me know..

HOW TO USE AGNIS STAND GUIDENCE
Just left red light visible - Too far to left
Just right red light visible - Too far to right
Both red lights visible/flickering. Green and orange bars visible= dead centre
AS the aircraft gets closer to stop point the size of the orange/green bars reduces and the red bar becomes visible.
When the green/orange bars disappear, means STOP
I have no idea how i manged to make this work.. i starting to wonder if i am a genious (LOL)

I have been facing CTD every time when on short final ILS26L, specially when I am online on VATSIM. It happens as I am on a 3nm final, the frame rate drops from 35 to 15 and followed by the CTD.

Thanks for all your work on this, much appreciated.

😍WOW! This has to be THE best freeware airport for MSFS! Heck, it's better than most payware. Donated!
Incredible scenery mate, thank you for all the work you have put into this and the detail! My only concern is my system (ryzen 5 3600, 2070 super, 32gb ram) with the A32NX starts to choke a little bit, maybe around 20fps on medium/high settings. Is this something you continue to optimise, or should I upgrade? Hahaha! Thank you again.
scenery/mycompany/modellib.bgl - 56bytes

It's required files or artefact?
Tomorrow i will be doing a rebuild refresh of the package with the latest SDK 0.12.0 and uploading
Hi there - firstly thanks for a great add-on - I really enjoy flying out of Gatwick in MSFS. The one problem I'm having is that at some gates, calling the tug causes a CTD. I've noticed this at both 565 and 577 - likely some other gates have the same issue. The common theme seems to be when there isn't an airbridge connection. Is this a known bug?
same here. crashing after takeoff. something in the scenery is messed up since the last world update 😞 I flew here nearly every day and I want to usw this possibility to thank you for your great work,
hello great addon but please update it beacuse from this update it is crashing the overall very nice scenery
Omg this is awesome. Thanks!
thank you this is amazing!
Hi, is the fire station this bright blue colour in real life? It looks a bit odd.
This looks amazing! However I feel like your images doesn't do the scenery justice! For the next update, perhaps update the pictures as well! 😀 Keep it up!
Great addon, looks exactly like the real airport.
Just have one issue though: When doing an ILS approach with the addon active my plane seems to start doing circles around and before the runway. The ILS seems to be about 30 deg to the left. When I remove the addon the approach works fine,
Does this use default placed jetways or did you relocate jetways?
I like great work very much
Great job, but I'm no longer able to active the scenery. Even following the procedure (delete the scenery, start Fs, spawn at EGKK, install the scenery, start fs .....)
Very strange ! The first time for me

Nb: it seems correct with the lighter version
This amazing. I think to take it to the next level would be to include green and orange runway exit lights. It would be the first airport in FS2020 to include them. Even though 99% of major airports in the world have them in real life.
the best scenery
Really great work! Just a question, why I cannot see the airport marked as an addon airport in Littlenavmap? In Flight simulator too, it doesnt appear as an addon...
Thanks
