Right (although I've been told to hold off just yet, because there's no easy way to put our stuff in X-Plane format now). But what I'm wondering is what the contents of the database he's got now are, so that I don't duplicate effort. Put another way, is the most-current runways.dat, with the data that'll be incorporated into this scenery build, available in CVS? If so, I can compare it to the current one, see what airports have had taxiways added, and hold off on doing those ones.
