Chicago-O'Hare International Airport, Illinois (IL), USA. This airport update reflects the current changes taking place at the airport with two optional files made only for the FSX default airport: one version with the crosswind runways operating where all seven runways will be used for takeoff/landing and one version as the default runway operation. Taxiways and taxi signs updated to the latest charts, assigned parking as per their website with extra parking including a gate for the A380, the south cargo ramp and buildings removed to make way for the new runway (the new runway will be added in a later update when open for operation also when charts become available to add the navaids) the new southwest and south central cargo ramps and buildings added, extra fuel trucks, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from inside the control tower (when in tower view). By Ray Smith.

If you are using my earlier version please remove/delete these files first, if you would rather keep them remove them to another folder not associated with FSX.

  • Take the runway operation file of your choice (only one) and the KORD_CVX.bgl file and place both of these files into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
  • Take the KORD_OBJ.BGL file and place this file into: Flight Simulator X/Scenery/Global/scenery folder.
  • Start up the Flight Sim and the changes will be present.

IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE ONLY USE ONE RUNWAY OPERATION FILE AT A TIME. I.E. Make sure there is only "ONE" of the KORD_RS.BGL FILES and the KORD_CVX.BGL file in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other KORD.bgl to avoid incorrect parking and other airport conflicts.

If you have any AI Traffic Addons please make sure they have "NOT" installed another Afcad for this airport as this will also cause a conflict.

PLEASE NOTE: When using ATIS with the KORD_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake runways as well as the airport runways, this is the method used in activating non parallel runways and should be ignored or if preferred use the version KORD_RS.BGL.

To Uninstall:

  • Delete/remove the BGL files and the default airport will then be active.
