Airports and aircraft details

I would like to see a change to how airport and aircraft details are driven from files in the sim.

Everything relating to these is far too manual and labour intensive at the moment. We are highly dependent on community updates from people being very generous with their time or spending hours ourselves making minor changes instead of flying.

  • The ability to design airports (runways, taxiways, ramps, parking spots) in the sim graphically. Instead of having to use an external program to match the graphic design of a scenery and then having to reload the sim after every change to see what has been implemented.
    This would make both payware and freeware scenery design much faster and more accurate.
  • The linking of an aircraft 'title' to the atc_model=, atc_airline=, atc_parking_codes=, atc_type=, wing_span= and correct strobe fx in aircraft.cfg.
    Listing "American Airlines 737-800" in an aircraft title should be enough to drive all of this information from a set list (amendable) in a single source file that comes in the main Prepar3D folder.

I hope to see something along these lines developed for a future version.
