ScruffyDuck Software and the ADE Development Team are delighted to announce the release of ADE9X. This is the first version of Airport Design Editor to support both FS9 and FSX. The new functionality means that FS9 airport developers now have access to most of the functionality that has been available to FSX designers for some time. This includes the Approach Designer and all the other tools that allow users to work with buildings, signs etc. The only area currently not supported for FS9 is terrain elements such as land class, roads and so on. We have spent a lot of time working on making the importation of AFCAD files into ADE as easy as possible.
Whilst this version is mostly about providing support for FS9, our FSX users should also update as they will find many fixes and a number of enhancements including much better handling of stock navaids, user defined colors for taxi links and an improved and more stable interface with the Sim.
We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all those in our development and beta teams as well as all those users who have tried out the release candidate and given us valuable feedback. You can find out more about ADE9X by visiting www.airportdesigneditor.co.uk or downloading the package direct from www.downloadcenter.scruffyduck.org.uk.

We were very sad to hear of the problems with AVSIM and hope that they will be up and running again soon. As a small step to ensuring the continued availablilty AFCAD files for both FS9 and FSX we have set up the ScruffyDuck Download Center. We will be uploading the work of many authors and groups and hope that this will help the community whil AVSIM is getting back on its feet. Click one of the buttons above to access the Center. It will take us a little while to get a good selection of files uploaded. If you are a developer and would like us to include your files then please email your zipped up packages to firstname.lastname@example.org with the usual readme and the file title and description in the email

Airport Design Editor Version 1.40 goes Gold
Today we passed the final build for 1.40 to the pre-release team. This means that the next version of ADE is ready to ship. We expect the pre-release testing to take about a week and then the program will be ready to download.

We have run into some technical issues around the new version of ADE. As a result the release will be delayed until we have sorted them out. Hopefully this will not take too long.
