Why are there no blastpads in IF? And why so many displaced thresholds?

This isn’t a feature request, just a question.
In infinite flight we have very detailed airports with taxiway markings and most runway markings. But why don’t we have blastpads? They aren’t very complicated, and I know that the airport creators are specifically instructed to not add them. There also seem to be lots of displaced thresholds (Like at EGLL) where there aren’t in real life. There’s probably a simple explanation for this I haven’t realised, and if there isn’t then why?imageRunway 27R at EGLL just doesn’t have a blastpad

I don’t really understand what you say.
A picture would help.

Oh sorry, I misread that part. I thought he said they’re complicated.

Blast pads are the big yellow arrows sitting at the end of a runway. It is designed to prevent erosion and damage to the runway from jet blasts.

I think we had blast pads before. I don’t remember which airport had it and I think blast pads were removed a few updates ago. We should be getting blast pads when Global releases.

He’s asking for blast pads, not displaced thresholds. Read my post and you’ll understand :)

That runway doesn’t have one, check 27R at EGLL for one that should have a blastpad

In that case it has one.

They are added the markings just aren’t supported yet. Same thing as with taxiway lights, signs, ATC routes, ect.
