Now imagine the code for RJBB, I tried posting that but it was over 210,000 characters.

I hope this opens most of your minds about how hard and tirelessly the devs work to make their customers happy, good day :)

I don’t think it’s necessarily a struggle for them to add these airports haha, probably just some quick code to make sure airports appear above terrain. You and other airport editors work tirelessly though so good job

Wait, I thought you were an editor too? Or just NAV?

Used to do airports more, then Nav, but it’s kinda slow right now

Yeah, it’s been a tad slow for me too.

Trust me, it’s it’s fun, but it’s also a pain in the butt.
I am slowing progressing on a tiny airport after not saving my work at lest 10 times. Not a very good feeling.

I wish WED had an auto-save feature

Yeah true, or recovered packages like recovered documents on Word.

Thanks @Patrick_U
Also one of the worst things is when WED (The software we use) crashes, and you loose a BUNCH of progress!

I just save every few min
