How do I change the Airport Location Properties?
If you want to change a stock airport location details such as state, city or name then it requires a little work. Like the stock airport location any changes must be loaded before the stock airport. Any changes in the modified bgl file created by ADE will not have any effect. While there is no direct way to do this in ADE at the moment it can be done with a little trick
The stock airport details
Add the state or province
- Add Wales
- Save the changes
Make sure the simulator is not running and compile the airport.
Check the entry in the simulator
We have used a trick to get ADE to create a pre-load Bgl file. These are normally made to change an airport altitude but in this case we have used it to change the location details. Note that this adds a bgl file to Scenery\World\scenery in the simulator and it you want to distribute your work then you will need to distribute that file as well. You can find out about the files that ADE can create here.
