Our pilot brief is now available! Currently the TAF is indicating landing West, so keep that in mind as you file your STAR. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-QMkGmyTugTcVhVa050N0hmMWc

We also have updated addon scenery available. The scenery adds the extra runways. It does not, however, have the updated ILS frequencies, nor current taxiway names. Please use a diagram for cross-reference. Ray Smith gets the credit for the original file, and our own Adam Russell for further updating it to the current runway configuration. To install this scenery, just extract to your "Addon Scenery" folder, and ensure that it is enabled in your simulator. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-QMkGmyTugTd0U5U1J5RnlMM0k

(If you have FSDT, either disable it, or do not use the updated scenery, as they conflict.)

We look forward to seeing you tonight!

Is there a contingency plan for people who ARE using FSDT? You know it's going to happen.

I read that as though it says use one or the other, not both.  That'd be the FSDT option right there -- use it in lieu of the stock or provided.  The pilot guide also has an airport diagram for FSDT users.  It sounds like supporting FSDT is as much a priority as anything else, so no contingency required.

Nope! You're free to use whatever scenery configuration you'd like. Just be aware of the differences
