Does KORD have custom taxiway (centerline greens) lighting? Same for runway exit lighting (orange/greens)?

You mean custom 3d light fixtures like KCLT ?

No, it doesn't, it's a fairly recent feature not many sceneries have, because it was introduced with a sim update much later than when KORD came out.

Any plans to retrofit this in the future or does that require a bit of work? Also, are there still MSFS upgrade discounts for those of us who owned your P3D sceneries? I tried emailing support but didn't hear back.

It's likely, but in the context of a more general update, which for KORD is surely planned to cover future expansion of the airport.

Yes, of course, whenever we released a new product for MSFS that qualifies for a discount for having the P3D version, we sent an email to all user that registered for it. Unfortunately, like with many things related to email, either users change email without contacting us, or our email gets flagged as Spam,

You emailed yesterday, in the evening ( our time ), at least allow some time before saying "support doesn't reply"

Umberto, should we not expect the green center lines to be updated for a long time then? It really sucks having to taxi around this beautiful scenery without the lights. Also, any word on updating the AFCAD (or whatever it's called now) with proper parking codes?

We aren't working on anything right now, other than completing GSX, which will enhance KORD and all our sceneries in ways more significant than that ( hundreds of custom pushback routes, vgds at every gate, etc. ).

It's not very far away, closer that most people would assume so, once it's out, we'll get back to regular updates to sceneries.
