Airport Changes From FS2004 V1.0

There are 24,491 airports in FSX - 794 are new airports - mostly small GA fields. 1038 airports have changed their designator from the FS2004 airport. 61 airports which were in FS2004 are gone. There are six airports which have taken the designator of another airport in FS2004 - that I've found so far. This is v 1.0 - I have not looked at all 1905 airports in FSX/ FS2004 - though I have looked at many. Also, this relies on automated processes as described below, so some airports may be...

High Definition Airport Parking & Jetways

In order to view the full high definition resolution within FSX, you will need to edit your fsx.cfg file and alter the entry: TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=4096 If the entry doesn't exist, copy the above and paste it under the [GRAPHICS] section in the fsx.cfg file.
