I'm digesting what it means for "we simmers" ... must check afcads etc. to further comment but as you would read a "quirky" for AI at least (?)

Or we can just leave it as it is now which will make it a lot easier for all.

The current scenery of Imaginesim does not have that third runway nor any taxiways connecting it with the rest. So an AFCAD is only possible IF they update their scenery.

WSSS will be undergoing major renovation for the next 10 years as the new addition they're building now between 02/20C and the third runway is practically new airport. No scenery developer would be able to catch-up with the progress.

The same is true with ZSPD, ZGGG and other Asian airports.

That part of the airport is Changi Air Base East. It is used by Singapore's F-16 fighter jets.

charts & airacs will conflict with scenery & AI ... at least 02L/20R should be "correct".

For everyone interested, here is a picture of what is planned:

Anything south of R2 is new and not yet in a scenery. So you can have whatever charts you want - if there is no scenery for it, you cannot fly there.

so mid 2020, no scenery for 02R & no charts / airac for 02C ...etc & for several years.
