Well, I use fourth party because yiu are first, I'm second, and the third party always is Microsoft resp. Lockheed Martin. So anybodyelse is an additional party.   For the moment I recommend to edit

Thanks for the update on the airlines. That livery of GOL will need dozens of high quality pictures to get it done.   To my understanding there is no variable for AI aircraft to switch trails on - a

What do you mean with sparse. Airport modifications by an AI addon can not go beyond creation of new runwys and major Taxiways, so if you want buildings etc. please supply an enhanced Version and I'm willing to include it.

The default KMSP not only has more included structures than most commercial airports in the FS world, but it also has numerous custom structures... A luxury reserved for a tiny minority of global airports, usually at those serving capital cities!

 

After visiting a heck of a lot of default commercial airports with <10 parking spots and one or two stock default terminal buildings with maybe one or two jetways, I'd hardly call MSP "sparse". To be honest, if you want more than the default provides, you're looking a custom payware airport, not an addition to an AI package.

 

Just the opinion of someone who spends a lot of time looking at how to improve default airports. ;)

There is AI traffic in EDDB - all that flies there today and some more - and I'm very sure many users are against an artifical closure of EDDT.

 

If mainline traffic switches from EDDT to EDDB, so will automatically MyTraffic - provided this ever happens which is by no means likely.

There are no static aircraft on any airport, but in the desert - static aircraft are a waste of valuable apron space - therefore I consider static aircraft on a non storage airfield as a very severe design bug. And why, as long as they do not move they don't save a single CPU tick...

If I want "static" aircraft, I just set them up as AI and only make them do a couple of quick touch and go flights in the middle of the night.

 

Burkhard: Some situations where aircraft are either all-up or all-down, such as my early 1940s airfields, you want a few to be down and not moving. It's not "bad design", it's realistic in some environments. Not everyone uses AI purely in a modern commercial airfield environment where the gates are used to their maximum for financial reasons!
