- Sun Apr 02, 2017 1:41 pm #512636 hello everyone sorry if this is to long or a rookie mistake, if this info is allready out there. ok got a couple issues, i dont have a lot of payware airports basically just 1. i usually go to avsim and download the most recent afcad file to update the airport hence the date on the file below it. the other day i was flying from kord chicago i was given a taxi instruction with none of the taxiways matching up to my scenery, that the controller gave me. so how do i fix this how do i get the same airport in fsx that matches up to the controllers taxi instructions i feel like an idiot when the taxi instructions aren't the same as what my diagram and scenery show and i have to try and say uhhhh i dont have those taxiways. also as another rookie mistake i thought when you buy a payware airport it is the most up to date scenery you can get so i thought that was my problem i downloaded fs dream team's kord 2.0 update got on fsx and my avsim airport was more up to date then the payware. how do i know when im buying an airport that it is the most up to date? sorry if these are dumb questions i know a good bit about vatsim but i still have some rookie flaws. any advise would be appreciated. thanks all

this is one reason though why ive avoided flying to ORD for a few years now. could never keep up with the changes
as far as knowing if your payware is up to date before buying. thats where youll have to do a little digging, your first clue will be the release date. then check the dates of any updates that were released after. also check their forums, there youll often find posts from users talking about that. for example FSDT Las Vegas is outdated as they havent added the new terminal
