Black Square – Real Taxiways Europe v1.2.0

Warning: If you’re using REX Simulations REX Real Global Airport Textures or Zinertek Enhanced Airport Graphics, do not use the “bksq-misc-real-taxiways-optional-textures” folder, they are conflicting with each other.

Warning: This add-on conflicts with the following airports (broken terraforming):
β€’ Aerosoft EGHC Airport
β€’ Aerosoft ENOV Airport
β€’ Aerosoft ENST Airport
β€’ AmSim LPMA Airport
β€’ ARIMA EDLW Airport

To fix it, rename the file at “bksq-misc-real-taxiways-euro/scenery/global/scenery/ICAO.bgl” to “ICAO.bgl.bak” (as described in the manual; replace “ICAO” with the ICAO code of each conflicting airport). Please note that there might be a lot more incompatibilites with 3rd party airports which he haven’t found yet.

– Fixed incorrect or missing signage at multiple airports
– Fixed elevation issues at multiple airports
Microsoft Flight Simulator has ushered in a new era of airport scenery. Airports now resemble their real-world counterparts enough to be easily recognisable, but inaccurate taxiway names, unrealistic signs and objects placed in the middle of taxiways immediately destroy immersion. Black Square’s Real Taxiways has been designed by real-world aviation professionals to fix these problems, resulting in unique airport signage that is functionally identical to its real-world counterparts.

If you’ve ever struggled while navigating the taxiways of an airport in MSFS because online ATC instructions or taxiway diagrams didn’t match the signs around your aircraft, this is the product for you. With Real Taxiways you will be able to navigate airports using real-world taxiway diagrams and online ATC while you learn the nuances of airport surface navigation.

In previous versions of Flight Simulator, only expensive payware scenery could provide you with the quality of airport signage achievable with Real Taxiways. Crowd-sourced alternatives, like scenery gateway systems and freeware downloads lack consistency and coverage, even when professionally moderated, which frequently disappoints real-world pilots. Real Taxiways is a cost effective solution whereby you can have thousands of consistently enhanced airports with features which have never been seen before for the cost of a single payware airport.

Real Taxiways is extremely frame rate friendly – you won’t experience any performance penalty at all!

You can exclude any airport (or airports) from your Real Taxiways installation if you wish, avoiding conflicts with freeware, payware and World Update airports.
