Question for MSFS2020 users:

The NOTAM recommends this scenery add-on in order to ensure one has the "dots":
https://flightsim.to/file/1686/kosh-witman-regional-airport-colored-runway-dots

However, this scenery is also available, is a bit more complete than the above, and also has the "dots":
https://flightsim.to/file/9667/kosh-wittman-regional-airport-oshkosh-wisconsin

Can someone knowledgeable confirm that the second would work (i.e. the correct dots of the correct colors are in the correct places)?  I did a quick tour of the airport and it looks okay to me.

EDIT: I just found the pages in the NOTAM which depict where each dot and sqaure is located.  I checked them all and it looks good.  I can informally recommend that second scenery!  It's not as immersively detailed as the LPNils version for X-Plane 11 (which is INCREDIBLE, FYI), but, it's nicely done.

Chicago ARTCC did an AMAZING job putting this on, once again.  Top-notch.  I hope anyone who missed it today gets a chance to fly it Thursday.  Cheers!

I agree 100%! I flew this event on Thursday and I was amazed how well this event was run. I felt completely immersed and excited to be taking part in an event that simulated very well what our real world pilots get to experience during this fly in. An added bonus for me was the addition of KOSH EAA Air Venture airport scenery, (XP) https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/42118-kosh-wittman-regional-eaa-airventure-oshkosh/ that gave me the uncanny experience of truly being at the show! I've personal have been at this event in the past a total of  four times and this gave me feeling that I was back! Haha! Thanks again to all who make this happen!
