Release V1.1.1
- Fix added for the USA update

Release V1.1.0

- Taxiways and runways should now line up and are named.

- Added taxiway signs.

- Added light row support.

- Smoothed out some taxiways.

-ILS Runway 9R now should be working.  I should note, the approach plate is a bit glitchy at the moment due to the SDK's handling.  The actual ILS is there however on 110.75 and you can tune to the frequency for glideslope and path.

- Added REILs to runways that needed them.

- Fixed a backwards painted line that led to taxiway M.

- Fixed and improved on some painted lines not lining up.

- Fixed the radio tower in the lake.

- Fixed a missed taxiway turn that should have been curved.

- Fixed some taxiways having extra lights.

- Fixed some parking spots' headings.

- Fixed some other apron issues.

 

Next up is the custom hangar models.  I have learned a lot about Blender and modeling since creating these.  I have decided not to add the RNAV approaches at this time as the approaches are a bit glitchy and not well supported right now.  Once things are in a better spot for including them, I will add the remaining approaches.

 

Features

- Entire airport that is not currently in the base game

 

- Hand crafted airport and scenery

- Hand crafted 3D hangars

- Plenty of GA parking spots

- Fixed road leading into area (Aviation Road), FL-710, and FL-786 roads

- Fixed many of the buildings that didn't auto generate

- Better ground textures and vegetation of the surrounding area

- Realistic look and feel based on satellite imagery

- Realistic night lighting around the hangars/runway/aprons

    Really nice airport. There are a few places though where lights are in the wrong places like on the runway and middle of taxiways. Will you be fixing that?

    Thank you for this great airport. I do believe the windsock is off by 180 degrees. https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/fix-for-windsock-blowing-the-wrong-way.448756/

    Glad to hear you enjoy it! The taxi ribbons with taxiway signs are going to be in an updated version very soon! Just finalizing the inclusion of the ILS. It should hopefully be out in a few days if all goes well.

    Any chance of including the ILS for runway 9L? Thanks so much for doing this airport, it is the closest to my home and the first thing I noticed was that MS left it out!

    Not a problem! Glad you enjoy it! This is actually exactly what I'm working on, I'm hoping to have an update in today/few days to fix the taxi ways/get more taxi way signs and include the ILS.

    Sweet! That's five minutes away from my office. I've already been impressed with what you've done with KNZY in San Diego, so this is icing on the cake. Thanks!

    Thanks! Will give this one a try. I live in St Lucie County and work in downtown West Palm Beach so I am familiar with the area.
