[RELEASE] Denver International Airport (KDEN) | X-Codr Designs

I’m thrilled to announce that KDEN - Denver International Airport is now available for MSFS on the MSFS Marketplace! This is the product of over 2 years of work to create my most extensive, and detailed scenery yet. From comprehensive 3d interiors to custom animated runway guard lights, Denver International Airport includes everything you’d expect visually, and everything you need functionally! And for those of you using GSX Pro, we’ve got you covered with a profile providing sensible vehicle locations, and routes that allow you to watch your passenger walk through the terminal to the gate (currently a separate install but we’re working on integrating it into the package)!

So what’s next for us? Well, I have a few extra things I want to implement for the next update of Denver, and I after that I have a few potential new airports in mind. What do you want to see? I’d love to hear your feedback, so shoot us an email or hop in our Discord and let us know! And of course, if you run into any issues, or have feedback about Denver, we’d love to hear it so we can improve!

Important: Please ensure you uninstall all other KDEN sceneries (including the default included in premium), and if using GSX Pro, choose to “Exclude 3rd Party” in it’s config menu after you have installed KDEN.

Visitors to Denver International Airport are treated to breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains, and a unique atmosphere promoted by Denver International Airport’s award-winning architecture. The most iconic of these being the peaked roof of the Jeppesen terminal, reflective of the snowcapped Rocky Mountains, and the historical Colorado landscape that was once dotted with Native American teepees. Given its size, scenic views, and diverse domestic and international routes, Denver International Airport is an excellent destination, or starting point, for any flight simmer!
