KDEN has been updated to version 1.4, bringing some significant changes to the airport.
Being an MSFS launch addon, KDEN went through some growing pains with the brand new simulator. The most significant challenge was incorporating the drastic terrain at the airport into the sim. At launch, MSFS's SDK was very limited in regards to terraforming capabilities. This resulted in many taxiways and even runways being a bit too steep.. and some taxiways having some rough edges. Since then, many new SDK updates have been developed and the airport is now much, much smoother for your taxiing, takeoff and landing adventures. There has been many other improvements as well, such as some targeted areas getting custom ortho imagery and better blending with models.
Full changelog below:
- Significant revamp of the terrain system, fixes to flatten bumps and various taxiway issues
- Custom ortho imagery for better blending
- Added various custom objects in airport perimeter
- Many fixes to models and textures for improved visuals
- Fixed terrain for track tunneling
- Custom ILS navaids
