The Fifth Runway Sunday (KATL) {5/19 2100z-0100z}
« on: April 13, 2019, 03:27:13 pm »

Atlanta has a special fifth runway that is hidden on the south side of the airport. This beautiful slab of concrete is used a lot in the real world, however on VATSIM it does not get as much love as it should. So between 2100z-0100z (5pm-9pm ET) on May 19, 2019, we are going to try to change that; Atlanta will use 28/10 as its primary runway for departures and arrivals. Most sims will not have this runway by default. To be able to use runway 10/28, these are some sceneries that you could use:

FSX/P3D: Freeware: https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=195841 (AVSIM Library account required)
P3Dv4 Only: Payware: https://imaginesim.net/product/katl-atlanta-p3d/
X-Plane 11: Payware: https://store.x-plane.org/KATL--Atlanta-International_p_365.html
X-Plane 11: Freeware: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/28877-katl-hartsfield-jackson-atlanta-international-airport/

If you are unable to use runway 10/28, please note that in your remarks.

Why would you punish the flying public so?

A clever marketing ploy to get us all to update our scenery.

Runway 10/28 is a punishment? Why? It's always a primary runway...

The big day is almost upon us! If you are unable to use runway 10/28, please please please put in your remarks something like: "Unable runway 10/28". Thanks!

The freeware FSX scenery does not work on P3Dv4, to fix it, throw the bgl into ADE, click lists, then taxi links, then hit the reset button. Now re-compile the scenery using the SDK and you should be good to go

X-Plane 11 default scenery comes with runway 10/28.

KATL was last updated in the X-Plane Scenery Gateway in Dec 2018 by Litjan.

It is a excellent scenery for KATL, its free & you get it by default.
