Greater Rochester International Airport (KROC), New York (NY). A total makeover of the default scenery. Includes a version with crosswind runways activated. Also includes assigned parking, updated taxiways, extra fuel trucks, rebuilt roads and more. By Ray Smith.
I have given this airport a total makeover designed with the latest version of ADE(v1.37) these 2 files made only for the FSX default airport: one with the Crosswind rwy's activated and in full operation, now activated by ADE where all 3 rwy's will be used for takeoff/landing and one file as the default rwy operation: assigned parking with extra parking, taxiways and taxisigns updated, extra fuel trucks, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from the roof of the control tower (when in tower view) please view the readme before installation.
There are 2 BGL files: KROC_ADE_RS.BGL and KROC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL
The 'KROC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL' version is with the Xwind rwy's activated and in full operation, the other version KROC_ADE_RS.BGLis without. Assigned parking is the same in both.
PLEASE NOTE: when using ATIS with the KROC_ADE_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake rwy's, this is the method used in activating Xwind rwy's created by Jim Vile and should be ignored or if prefered use the version KROC_ADE_RS.BGL
NOTE: For those that have Acceleration installed will see extra flood lighting in the Cargo areas.
1. simply take the BGL file of your choice and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
2. there are jetway extensions, and to see these you need to add the textures for them, please follow these steps:
Go to the FSX\Scenery\NAME\Texture folder. Go down the list until you see jfk_jetway.dds (day texture) and jfk_jetway_LM.dds (night texture). "COPY" them out of that folder and "PASTE" them into the Scenery\Global\Texture folder.
3. Start up the Flight sim and the changes will be present.
IMPORTANT NOTE: ONLY USE ONE BGL FILE AT A TIME:
ie: make sure there is only ONE 'KROC.BGL' FILE in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other KROC.bgl to avoid incorrect parking.
1. Delete/remove the BGL file and the default will then be active.

Jim Vile for his Technique that activates crosswind runways.
And my ever enduring wife to put up with the hours spent making these files.
TIP: when at KROC in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle" allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (i allocated a button on my controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.
Enjoy and happy flying.
