About

Welcome to Frankfurt International Airport

As there is currently no real contender to Asobos Premium Deluxe Edition airport rendition of this important, a team around Integralo formed to develop a freeware Frankfurt Airport. VirtualFRA develops this airport in the spare time including, but not limited to the following:

  • Custom buildings and assets
  • Correct and up-to-date taxiways and taxi signs
  • Correctly positioned lights and light sources
  • Living aprons with custom 3D models
  • And many more

 

Installation

For owners of the standard MSFS-Edition:

Simply extract the folder to your MSFS2020 community folder and you are done!

 

For owners of the Premium Deluxe Edition:

Please open the "content manager" and look in the middle top area of your screen. On the right-hand side of the search bar, there are two small symbols: a package and a list symbol. Please select the list symbol. Then type into the search bar "Frankfurt" and uninstall the "EDDF-Frankfurt Airport from Asobo Studio" Version.

 

You have BlackSquare Real Taxiways Europe installled:

Delete the following file "...\Community\bksq-euro\scenery\global\scenery\EDDF.bgl"

You want to use the awesome Nool VDGS:

We included compatibility to the great Nool VDGS System. Please refer to Nool on how to install his awesome VDGS here:

https://flightsim.to/file/39576/msfs-visual-docking-guidance-system

 

Note on the current development stage

The airport is still at the beginning of the development cycle. Please note that many buildings, assets, textures are missing or wrongly placed. Most notably, Terminal 1, Pier A is just a placeholder building with Terminal 1, Pier B with partly textured 3D-Models. We will add more 3D-Objects and replace outdated ones incrementally.

We would like to share the current development stage with you to give you a first impression and to take any improvements/ideas you might have.

Please join our Discord to do so! We also have a website where you can check all relevant information and report bugs and file suggestions.

The scenario is beautiful, in continuous development...but if I use this scenario all the scenarios that use the windsock by default, display it without its supporting structure, only the sleeve can be seen. If I remove the scenario everything is displayed correctly.

hey! i dragged it into my community folder but i don’t use the one in app data but the one in my external disk, so when i put the file in the folder, and then normally spawn at FRA it’s still normal, any help please?

Thank you for your effort at making something better for the default Frankfurt Airport. Taxiways are needed only for my navigation. Hope you can make the buildings, terminals in the future.

Great work, thank you very much!

If you need any real-life input and information from the southwestern corner of the airport, feel free to contact me.

Hi, erstmal danke für die super Arbeit.

Gibt es eine GSX File?

Ich habe gesehen das es z.b. für Terminal 3 Erweiterungen gibt, wo kann ich dies runter laden?

Mit den letzten Updates ist diese Scenerie absolout klasse geworden. Alles was gemacht ist, ist mit sehr viel Liebe und Zeit Aufwand gemacht und einfach immer wieder schön anzuschauen. Frankfurt ist meine Homebase und ich war schon oft dort und kann sagen, dass diese Scenerie sehr sehr gut ist. Seit dem letzten update (0.11.3) ist sie definitiv besser als die Asobo Scenerie. Sie hat vielleicht nicht die Hotels und alles was die Asobo Scenerie hat. Aber das ist ja für den Airport erstmal nicht wichtig, das wichtige sind die Terminals die Texturen am Boden und andere Gebäude die am Flughafen wichtig sind (z.b. Lufthansa-technik Hangar). Und das ist alles um Welten besser als bei der Asobo Scenerie. Also danke für die großartige Arbeit

Thank you!

Wonderful to see EDDF comes alive and every update improves on the previous one. Any reason why FSLTL AI aircraft are not showing up? I think there was one parked at Terminal B but the rest are all empty?

Is this scenery, in current stage, better or still worse then Asobo premium deluxe FRA?

Tolle scenery ... aber wo habt ihr das GSX Profil versteckt 😊

Gude aus Niederrad, ich bin sehr froh, dass ihr euch EDDF annehmt! Die Fortschritte sind sehr gut und lassen auf eine Payware-Qualität in naher Zukunft hoffen! Weiter so!

P.S.: Ich persönlich würde mich freuen, wenn ihr dem Squaire Priorität gebt, weil es einfach DAS Merkmal vom Approach ist, besonders auf die 25R.
