This is my very first attempt at modifying a stock airport ,which had generic textures, with something more customized. I used the MFS SDK of course, and all stock objects with the SDK . 

"1c5" , Clow Airport, is in Bolingbrook, Illinois, which is a western suburb of Chicago. It also houses a small restaurant called 'Charlie's with an outdoor patio , and an 'Illinois Aviation Museum" and a flight school. Just next to this small airport's parking lot is a small mini-golf course, which i recreated also . This airport is surrounded by industrial warehouses and some commercial lots such as Lowe's and Home Depot. 

I work about 5 mins from here and reside in Chicago, so I really wanted to lovingly recreate this airport as it really is. Since this is my 1st attempt, some things ( like the hangar types and roofs) are not exactly like in real life, but i tried to use the stock hangars in the MFS SDK to get as close to real as possible. 

I also really wanted this airport to feel like it is a living, breathing airport, from people and pilots walking around, to small aircraft parked, to the surrounding area seeming more lifelike, with 3d cars and trucks in the parking lots ( these will be visible when you practice trafic patterns from the single Runway 18/36. 

I also recreated a water tower which is right next to this airport, and is a VFR reference.
Hope you enjoy ! 

To install, just drop the folder into your 'Community' folder, and thats it!

Next on my list are trying to customize other Chicago area airports ( KMDW Midway airport is next on my list), and others such as KDPA ( Dupage airport), KLOT ( Lewis Unviersity airport),  Schaumburg Regional, etc.

    I fixed some of the taxiway parkings, missing airplanes; and also brightened up the aprons to make them look more true to life. Also resized the windsocks a bit more, and added a few more parking spots.

    You're welcome ! I work down the road from here , and sometimes me and my boys have breakfast at Charlie's in summer. Someday ihope i can get my PPL here , or maybe KMDW! This was my first SDK designed/ re-edited airport and though buildings are not exact, at least its way more accurate than the generic airport.

    Are you a (hobby?) photographer? Not only created you a beautiful scenery, your screenshots are superb too!
