Hey all.

Simple but loaded question I'm going to ask, and yes, this is going to single out the recently updated KLAS scenery (especially since we have an uncanny knack for timing!).

How long would, in what would be considered trivial from a customer's perspective, a very minor update to a given scenery take?

I ask, because this is coming down the pipe:

https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/aeronav/procedures/application/?event=procedure.results&tab=coordination&nasrId=LAS#searchResultsTop

The tl;dr of it: Runways 7L/25R and 7R/25L are being upnumbered due to magnetic variation, and this may be going into effect as early as 09/2017.

So back to the question: How long would a scenery change to change two numbers (the 5s to 6s) take? From our perspective it would be relatively minor, but from a developer's standpoint is what I'd like to know.

With KFLL, the update due to the change of magnetic variation was released 20 days after it was initially reported.

This is good to know. Thanks! Should this be officially announced, then you may see requests for an update come in, as there will be quite a number of confused pilots asking for an update to what they would feel is outdated scenery.

Right now, this is still in the RFC phase, but may be finalized within the next few weeks.

The FSDT Live Update will take care of it.

Are there any plans to update the ground markings as well as taxi signs? Mine still appear as for the 25s or 7s?

Good catch. The runway markings are up to date, but the taxiway signs and ground markings still do show up as the 25s/7s. I can live with that for now, but I suspect that the developers will put out another update.

Of course we are. That's not an update, it's a bugfix that must be made as soon as possible.
