This uses to Default Airport runways/taxiways and jetways... But all the terminals/piers/stand plates are handcrafted. Every stand number is correct,
This is the full version with all eye candy, animations and off airfield additions

    This version is running certainly better than the previous versions. Thank you for the optimizations although the fps is not as high as most of my payware airports its certainly looks more detailed than some of them.Going to test a flight from here to LFPG although I know Paris airport is the worst running airport in this sim. This is a keeper.Wish Gaya could do the same with the default handcrafted airports that run poorly.

    Thanks, Lots more optimisations in the next update on Friday.. I have replaced all the modelled creamy beige facia board on pier 2 with a PBR corrugated Normal Texture., looks way better, and no aliasing from further away. 20% reduction in Mesh for that pier. Also the blocks on top are now just rectangles with a roof PBR and loop cut frame with PBR Corrugations in the middle... all texture. https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/mods/3400/images/322/322-1606753322-1179546856.jpeg

    Hi thank you so much for your beautiful work. Any chance you could do custom jetways?

    I cannot at the moment because i would have to completely make all the runways/aprons/taxiways/parkingbays, and finally then custom jetways... that would take a year or more... 175 stands. Then there would be no time to add details to roofs https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/mods/3400/images/322/322-1606674019-1226838681.jpeg

    This is a fantastic piece of work. It's made it into my first ever Freeware Focus video, as the headliner! https://youtu.be/wp2dSxT-Rzs

    This is just brilliant, no other word for it, thanks for all of your effort and commitment. Extremely detailed airport. One very tiny issue for me relating to taxiway Kilo. Instead of centreline taxi lights I have white boxes with white polygons, look about 1mtr square. These are spaced as if they should be lights?

    Thanks for that, are taxiway marking there? they are some of the last models may need to be redone since the renaming of the modellib to Gatwick-modellib, I will redo them to the new models.. that comment never came before and i never observed that... but mine may have been in cache.. If you mean the actual lights then it may be an SDK asset change

    The taxiway markings. I got good news. I feel another update coming on.... But this may take a while. The hard work of creating the positions id done previously so changing them is quite easy...
